    BEIRUT STREET: NEWSPAPER HEADLINING THE PROPOSAL: ZAYED STATEMENT TO CAMERA.



    ZAYED: "We consider that the latest programme given by king Hussein is part of the liquidatory plans of imperialism in the area. We refuse this not only by saying that, but we will fight it by revolutionary violence because our aim -- as Palestinian revolutionaries -- is to liberate Palestine, and regain for our masses their rights in Palestine, and not to create a puppet state which is exploited and dependent on the Israelis and the reactionaries."
