      Dear Kevin,

      Down below is the PFLP's official reaction to the UN
      Security Council outrage known as Resolution 1441.

      I forwarded your "go ahead" to Ibrahim Alloush, so I
      think the new issue of the FAV should be up in the
      next day or so. There's been some delay, but I'm
      hopeful.

      Comradely,

      Eric

      Press Release

      Commenting on United Nations Security Council
      Resolution 1441 concerning Iraq, which was issued
      yesterday, 8 November 2002, a spokesman for the
      Political Bureau of the Popular Front for the
      Liberation of Palestine has made the following
      statement:

      The Security Council Resolution devoted to disarming
      Iraq comes as a result of intense and continuous
      pressure applied by the American Administration over
      the last few weeks. In spite of the changes that were
      introduced by some members of the Security Council,
      the essence of what the American Administration wants
      from the resolution is that it prepare a path for
      comprehensive military aggression against Iraq,
      targeting its oil wealth and other potentials, as a
      first step on the path to redrawing the entire map of
      the region.

      The decision to attack Iraq has been taken by the
      American Administration, but it wants an international
      cover for its aggression � the pretext of eliminating
      Iraqi weapons of mass destruction � although everyone
      knows that Israel possesses all forms of mass
      destruction weapons � thermonuclear, atomic,
      biological, and chemical.

      Israel occupies Palestinian territory and practices
      all forms of terrorism, killing, and crime against the
      unarmed Palestinian people. It refuses to implement
      UN General Assembly and Security Council resolutions
      concerned with the Palestinian issue. Despite that,
      the world does not call it to account, nor does the
      American President or the British Prime Minster
      threaten it with painful consequences. On the
      contrary, they provide it all kinds of support and
      assistance in its aggressive war against the
      Palestinian people and the Arab Nation.

      There is no doubt that the double standard, the
      injustice, the preparation of the path to aggression
      against Iraq, and the escalation of the Israeli war
      against the Palestinian people are steps aimed at
      subjugating the whole Arab Nation and threatening the
      heart of Arab national security.

      Therefore, the Popular Front for the Liberation of
      Palestine appeals to the Arab peoples and their
      governments to grasp the danger of what is taking
      place, to protect the land and people of Iraq, and to
      prevent the aggression threatened by the American
      Administration from occurring. The Popular Front
      calls on the Arab Nation to grasp the danger of what
      is taking place, and of the escalation of Zionist
      aggression against the Palestinian territories that
      will take place, and which is a part of the
      comprehensive plan drawn up for the region.

      We call on everyone, before it is too late, to protect
      Iraq and Palestine, to protect Arab National security
      and future Arab generations.
