Palestinian leader stirs up trouble in Damascus

November 15th, 2005 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

One of Palestine’s top leaders Faruq Al-Qaddumi has caused controversy in Damascus.

He arrived in the Yarmuk refugee camp in the south of Damascus to make a speech on the first anniversary of Yasser Arafat’s death. But he was unhappy that he was set to speak under his rival Mahmud Abbas. He refused to speak until the picture was taken down.

The photo of Abbas was put up in the wake of recent peace-talks between Bashar and Abbas – Syria and the PLO broke off contact after the Oslo Accords with Israel.

    Kaddomy is standing with Syria while Abbas is standing with Sharon maybe Abbas represent the palestiniansin the west bank and Gazza but he does not seem to represent the palestinian outside palestine.that should wake up Abbass to danger that the palestinians are facing.
