SHUKEIRI & MAO

A conversation

Comrade Mao had in 1965 with Ahmed Shukeiri, at that time the leader of the PLO, is of great importance for all the world's Marxist-Leninists.

Comrade Mao addressed the Arab nation through Shukeiri, saying: "The Zionist movement is mobilised with all its forces against the Arab nation. You have to mobiIise all the parts of your nation in order to act on all fronts. That is the strategic line which must be followed; otherwise Israel will try to combat you country by country."

Comrade Mao added:
"Imperialism created Formosa for us, and in the same way it created Israel for you.

But we succeeded in destroying it thanks to the struggle of the Chinese people and their Long March. What if two million fighters from a nation that numbers more than 100 million marched across the river and into the occupied land? You say that the enemy will kill them all... It would be better for your cause if Israel committed such a historical crime."

(Quoted by Almustakbal, No. 565,
19 Dec. 1987)
