He believed legitimate resistance includes armed struggle. Asked about risks he and others took, he said:

"We all are targeted as soon as we begin to be mobilized. We do our best to avoid their guns, but we are living under the brutal Zionist occupation of our lands, and its army is only a few meters from us. Of course we must be cautious, but we have work to do, and nothing will stop us."

He, Saadat, Ghassan Kanafani, PFLP founder George Habash, and countless less well known freedom fighters never gave an inch in struggling for right over wrong. Nor do current PFLP leaders and other like-minded Palestinians.

Saadat and other resistance leaders are targeted for their prominence. In Saadat's case, it's also for belong to a so-called prohibited organization.

PFLP was founded on December 11, 1967. It courageously resists Israeli oppression. It seeks long denied liberation. 

It accuses Israel of "brutal aggression against our people - murder, destruction, assassination, house demolitions, the uprooting of trees, land expropriation, settlement expansion, the continued construction of the Apartheid Wall, a suffocating political and economic siege, torture, and massive oppression."

It supports right over wrong. Israel calls PFLP members terrorists. They're heroes.

For over 40 years, Saadat was targeted ruthlessly. He's been arrested numerous times, tortured, imprisoned on false charges or none at all, kept in punishing long-term isolation, and brutalized other ways. He calls himself "a prisoner for freedom."
