In 1970, Ghassan Kanafani, a leader for the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine was interviewed in Beirut. At the time, the PFLP was fighting against forces in Jordan to determine whether Jordan would be ruled by the PFLP or the Hashemite Monarchy. In this interview, Kanafani rejects a westernized perception of the events, where the PLFP is engaged in a civil war, and instead incorporates fascism, and the history of exploitation of his people in his understanding of the motives behind the fighting. Defining the PLFP’s efforts not as a conflict but as a liberation movement for justice, Kanafani fundamentally alters the way that the interviewer is forced to think about his questions, and the way the world must consider his answers.
