They (Jewish terrorists) did everything to encourage them (Natives) to flee - Yigal Allon (d. 1980), who commanded the Jewish terrorist group ‘Palmach brigade’ and later became Zionist entity’s foreign minister (1974-77).’
In the 1950s, a young man (Mahmoud Abbas), whose family fled town of Safad after attacked by Jewish terrorists belonging to Palmach brigade and took refuge in Syria - came to Qatar with a law degree - and joined the civil service. Later in 1982 - he received PhD from Moscow University for his thesis “The Connection between Nazism and Zionism” - and became the only PhD among the so-called “Arab terrorists”. In the said thesis, Abbas cites the 1935 agreement between the Nazi regime and the Zionist movement whereby the Nazis allowed German Jews to emigrate to Palestine if they left behind their properties. Abbas also questioned the figure of “Six Million Died” Jewish victims of Nazi holocaust (the Zionists first spoke of 12 million, then the figures were drastically brought down to “Six Million Died” and even “Four Million Died” - the Rabbis who attended Tehran Holocaust Conference in December 2006, agreed that the figure could not be more than one million) - which he pointed out cannot be verified and confirmed. In 2002, Zionist historian, Lenni Brenner wrote a book titled 51 documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis.
During the same time, another Palestinian refugee (Yasir Arafat) with and engineering degree from the University of Cairo landed in a job with Kuwait Public Works Department. It was in Kuwait that grew the idea of a secular Palestinian nationalist movement to wage struggle to liberate Palestine, which the Arab nationalist regimes failed to do.
On October 10, 1959 - Yasir Arafat, Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Ma’azin), Khalil al-Wazir (Abu Jihad), and a few other young Palestinian refugees started “Harakat al-Tahir al-Filastin, Fatah). Fatah emerged from the underground in 1965 - joined PLO in July 1968 and by 1969, took control of the umbrella body, Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) - which was Nasser’s project (1964) on the behest of US secretary of state Dean Rusk - to keep Palestinian resistance groups under his secular-Arab nationalism control before they’re infiltrated by Islamists from Muslim Brotherhood, which produced Hamas leadership later-on. Yasir’s close aide, Hani al-Hasan reported: “There was a very good understanding between president Gamal Abdul Nassar and Dean Rusk that the Palestinians had to be controlled and prevented from taking genuine military and political action of their own.”
By 1973 - the PLO expressed its willingness to accept a ‘Fatah Sheikhdom’ on the West Bank and Gazzah, which the Zionist regime could not digest - so Abbas & Co. watered it down by 1979 to “any solution leading to the establishment of the “Fatah Sheikhdom” anywhere inside occupied Palestine. By October 1982 - Abbas took upon himself the crusade to prove to the leaders of settlers’ state that both Natives and the foreign Jews can live in peaceful co-existence under a secular and democratic “Fatah Sheikhdom”. To support his point he reminded the Zionist regime how he had succeeded in convincing Syrian president Hafez al-Assad (d. 2000) to allow 400 unmarried Jewish girls to leave Syria to find husbands abroad.
Egyptian newspaper ‘Al Usbu’ in its January 12, 2001 issue quoted Abd al-Qadir, a leftest Palestinian writer - “Mahmoud Abbas came from an Iranian Bahai family which had emigrated to Palestine during the British mandate period. His family surname used to be Mirza, which seems to have been quietly dropped as they tried to assimilate into the mainstream.”
Abbas denied the allegation - but his anti-Palestinian and pro-Israel actions negate his denial.http://rehmat1.wordpress.com/2009/03/19/fatah-plo-and-abbas/
