>>Book: Social Structures Supporting the Palestinian Resistance in Egypt: Studies of Three Models (Arabic) (244 pages, 5.2 MB)
The 242-page book includes a preface and three chapters. The preface, by ‘Abd El-Kader Yaseen, talks about the Palestinian resistance from the Nakbah in 1948 until the PLO’s “Oslo Accords” in 1993, while the following three chapters discuss the most prominent structures that were established in Egypt to support the Palestinian resistance. The first chapter, by Ahmad Sha‘ban, Secretary General of the Egyptian Socialist Party (ESP), covers the founding of the “Palestinian Revolution Supporters Group” at Cairo University in 1971, which he also led.
The second chapter, by Amirah Mahmud, a researcher and activist in Palestinian affairs, discusses the establishment of “The Arab Committee to Support the Islamic Resistance in Lebanon and Palestine.” It was an indication that the Egyptians adopt and support the new form of resistance factions in Lebanon and Palestine, forming in the 1980s, and which had an Islamic character; i.e., Hizbullah in Lebanon and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) Movement and Hamas in Palestine.
The third chapter, by Salah ‘Abdul Ra’uf, an Egyptian researcher specialized in Arab and Palestinian affairs, talks about how the “Participating Arab Front in the Palestinian Resistance” was formed by members of different intellectual movements from three Arab countries, in January 2008.
This book aims to document these three structures, so as future generations of different various intellectual and political backgrounds benefit from such experiences.
