Imperialism has layed its body over the world, the head in Eastern Asia, the heart in the Middle East, its arteries reaching Africa and Latin America. Wherever you strike it, you damage it, and you serve the World Revolution.— Ghassan Kanafani

"I want to do for the Middle East what Reagan did for the Soviet Union."
