Terrorist and Fatah founder Salah Khalaf - Abu Iyad: "This role is first and foremost all of the Palestinians'. We are the people that said: We want to invade Israel through international legitimacy. Action is what is able to force our enemy to retreat, and these decisions will be international justifications. Why are you making concessions? Every concession is in your head. We are placing a political border; we want a Palestinian state. We want a Palestinian state with a Palestinian flag on it."

Visual: The PA TV Live logo is shown, and the text: "Martyr Commander Salah Khalaf 'Abu Iyad,' Jan. 14, 1991"

Abu Iyad (Salah Khalaf) - PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat’s deputy, one of the founders of Fatah, and head of the terror organization Black September, a secret branch of Fatah. Attacks he planned include the murder of 11 Israeli athletes at the Munich Olympics (Sept. 5, 1972) and the murder of two American diplomats in Sudan (March 1, 1973). It is commonly assumed that his assassin, a former Fatah bodyguard, was sent by the Abu Nidal Organization, a rival Palestinian faction.
