PostAnniversary of PLO's Founding: 28 May 1964 (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 05/28/21 8:58 am)
Today marks the anniversary (28 May 1964) of the founding of the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization), together with the proclamation of the Palestinian Nation.
Of course, Westerners dubbed the PLO and similar organizations as terrorists, but only the worst hypocrites would call them this while at the same time exalting the partisans of WWII as freedom fighters.
Oh by the way, the historical accord sponsored by the Italian PM Berlusconi between NATO and Russia was also signed on this date--28 May 2002. The accord did not survive the atavistic Russophobia of the Empire, which pushed Russia into the arms of Communist/capitalist China, just as 70 years earlier Italy was pushed into the arms of Germany.
JE comments: Given recent events (and WAIS discussions), this is a most relevant anniversary. The Palestinian Authority and Hamas are notorious for their enmity, but few non-specialists understand what the doctrinal differences are. Can any of our readers explain them in lay terms?
