“It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day of the month, that the word of Yehuveh came unto me, saying, Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them down. . . . .”
History and Related Events: Yehuveh says: “Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them down, even her, and the daughters of the famous nations, unto the nether parts of the earth, with them that go down into the pit.” In tragic pathos, Yehuveh pictures the scattered and destitute future of the Palestinian peoples. Ezekiel 32:18.
“The Israelis, at least, understood precisely what the guerrilla organizations had in mind. After the Octobre war, they lived with the fedayun program on a revived and continual basis. Thus, on April 11, 1974, in an effort to disrupt Kissinger’s shuttle negotiations, three members of the PFLP General Command [Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine] infiltrated across the Lebanese border and made their way to the Israeli frontier community of Kiryat Shmonah. There they burst into an apartment house, indiscriminately machine-gunned its inhabitants, and killed eighteen men, women, and children before themselves being slain by an Israeli army unit. . . .
“The violence continued almost without respite. In March 1975 a group of eight Fatah members again sailed down the Israeli coast, this time disembarking in a rubber dinghy off the Tel Aviv shoreline. Entering a shabby seafront hotel, the raiders murdered eight hostages and wounded eight others (three of the Israeli soldiers who led the rescue effort were also killed, as were seven of the fedayeen).” Sachar, Howard M.
