I would not call the Palestinian forces nat lib. That sounds rather cuddly and noble. What they are is violent crypto-racist.

Officially their aim is a nice two state solution. Unofficially their aim is the destruction of Israel and the expulsion of the Jews.

Maclane, you don't know what you are talking about. Sure, some of them want that, but not all. There are a lot of different points of view on Israel and Jews in Palestine, even among militants. The ones that tend towards throwing Jews on the sea often comes from Gaza or the west bank refugee camps.

Red Action became the IWCA but ceased to be Red Action.

Red Action became IWCA after Red Action dissolved itself.

Oh, and you could be both a national liberationist and a racist, and in Palestine you do find those.
