Description

Colin Edwards interviews Miss Leila Khaled, a young Palestinian woman who has become a heroine to the whole Arab world through leading a two-man team in taking over a TWA airliner between Rome and Athens and ordering it to proceed first to Lydda, to circle over her homeland to challenge the Israelis, and then to Damascus where she blew up the entire front end. A member of the Marxist-Leninist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, she describes the origins of that movement, its philosophy, its strategy and its tactics, as well as her memories of the hijacking. Recorded just after she surfaced in Beirut following her release from 44 days of detention in Syria, where other PFLP guerillas have suffered imprisonment. Title of program originally "Arab girl guerilla leader.".
