  • Description

    FOUR PALESTINIAN GUERRILLA GROUPS, BITTERLY OPPOSED TO CURRENT MIDDLE EAST PEACE MOVES, STAGED A RALLY IN BEIRUT YESTERDAY (NOVEMBER 29) TO MARK THE 27TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE UNITED NATIONS DECISION TO PARTITION PALESTINE.

    THE GROUPS HAVE BOUND THEMSELVES TOGETHER INTO THE SELF-STYLED PALESTINIAN REJECTION FRONT. IT'S FORMED BY THE POPULAR FRONT FOR THE LIBERATION OF PALESTINE, THE POPULAR FRONT (GENERAL COMMAND), THE IRAQI-BACKED ARAB LIBERATION FRONT, AND THE POPULAR STRUGGLE FRONT.

    STUDENT UNIONS AND OTHER ARAB GROUPS ALSO HAD REPRESENTATIVES AT YESTERDAY'S RALLY. SPEAKERS ATTACKED THE POLICIES OF THE PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANISATION AND OF KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN. THE REJECTION FRONT REGARDS LATEST NEGOTIATIONS, BASED ON THE U.N.'S RECOGNITION OF PALESTINIAN RIGHTS TO NATIONHOOD, AS A SURRENDER.

    BUT THE NEW FRONT AT ONE POINT SHOWED ITSELF TO BE DIVIDED, WHEN RIVAL FACTIONS STARTED FIGHTING AT THE RALLY.
