  • Description

    THREE EL FATAH COMMANDOES HAVE ARRIVED IN KUALA LUMPUR TO TRY TO GATECRASH THE WORLD ISLAMIC WORLD CONFERENCE WHICH BEGAN IN THE MALAYSIAN CAPITAL LAST MONDAY. THEY WENT TO THE MEETING HALL YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) AND WERE TURNED AWAY BECAUSE THEY WERE NOT OFFICIALLY INVITED.

    THEY FLEW IN UNEXPECTEDLY LAST NIGHT TO TRY TO SEEK FINANCIAL AND MATERIAL AID FOR THEIR GUERILLA WAR AGAINST ISRAEL. THEY ARE LED BY EL FATAH'S INFORMATION SPOKESMAN, ABU HISHAM.

    THOUGH THE THREE FAILED TO GAIN ADMISSION TO THE CONFERENCE YESTERDAY, OFFICIALLY ACCREDITED ARAB DELEGATES HAVE PROMISED THEY WILL SPEAK ON BEHALF OF THE COMMANDOES.

    ALREADY THE CONFERENCE HAS DISCUSSED THE ISRAELI QUESTION. THERE WERE HEATED EXCHANGES WHEN IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT ZAKAT FUNDS-- MOSLEM DONATIONS TO CHARITIES AND THE POOR -- BE USED FOR THE FIGHT TO REGAIN THE LOST TERRITORIES. JORDAN'S SHEIKH ABDULLAH IS LEADING A CRUSADE FOR SUPPORT TO HAVE THE OLD CITY OF JERUSALEM RETURNED TO ARAB CONTROL.

    THE EL FATAH TRIO SAID THEY WANTED TO HAVE TALKS WITH THE MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT ON THE POSSIBILITY OF GETTING AID FOR THEIR CAUSE AND SETTING UP A COMMANDO TRAINING CAMP IN MALAYSIA. A MALAYSIAN SPOKESMAN SAID: 'IT IS ALL VERY EMBARRASSING.'
    FOOTNOTE: SINGAPORE AT THE SOUTHERN TIP OF MALAYSIA IS REPORTED TO HAVE ISRAELI MILITARY ADVISERS.
