A Model of "Resistance"

Dawsons_fieldAs far as the BBC, terror must only happen when its own airplanes are hijacked:

Soon afterwards George Habash formed the PFLP. The group's inaugural statement said that, "the only language which the enemy understands is that of revolutionary violence".

Within the year the PFLP had delivered on its threat of violence. In July 1968 the group hijacked an El Al aeroplane en route from Rome to Tel Aviv.

A new tactic in the Palestinian "resistance" had been born.

Habash and the PFLP are best known for hijacking four planes to Dawson's Field, in Jordan, in September, 1970.

An attempt to hijack a fifth plane, from El Al, was foiled. It's a story of real resistance: Pilot Uri Bar-Lev's. If only the BBC would use him as its model.
