  • Description

    THE LEBANESE PRIME MINISTER, DR. ABDULLAH AL-YAFI, YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) SAID HE SUPPORTED COMMANDO ACTION BY PALESTINIANS BECAUSE THEY WERE ENTITLED TO DEFEND THEIR COUNTRY. "WHAT WAS TAKEN BY FORCE CAN BE RECOVERED ONLY BY FORCE," HE TOLD ABOUT 5,000 STUDENTS AND WORKERS WHO HAD MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS OF BEIRUT ON THE 51ST ANNIVERSARY OF THE BALFOUR DECLARATION, WHICH PLEDGED BRITISH SUPPORT IN SETTING UP A NATIONAL HOME FOR THE JEWS.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS ASSEMBLED OUTSIDE GOVERNMENT HOUSE IN BEIRUT. MANY WERE CARRYING PLACARDS READING "WE ARE ALL FEYADEEN (COMMANDOS)". OTHER SLOGANS REJECTED PEACEFUL SETTLEMENT OF THE MIDDLE EAST CRISIS, AND SUPPORTED ARMED STRUGGLE AND COMMANDO ACTION.

    DR. YAFI TOLD THE DEMONSTRATORS: "LEBANON IS AN ARAB COUNTRY. IT WILL REMAIN ARAB, AND THERE WILL BE NO INTERNATIONALISATION OR PROCLAMATION OF NEUTRALITY."
