The Egyptian Council for Foreign Affairs organized on 19th of June 2017, a lecture to discuss the book “On Palestinians only.The dialectic of success and failure” by Dr. Marwan Kanafani, political advisor to the late President Yasser Arafat. Mounir Zahran, Chair of the Council, Ambassador Ezzat Saad, Director of the Council, and a number of members attended this symposium.
Dr. Kanafani explained that his book revolves around the Palestinians, their struggle, their suffering and sacrifices, and the differences of their leaders and parties, as well as their quarrels and divisions, those that left many painful effects on the generations of our generations to recover our stolen land and the future of their homeland. And that our people have spent thirteen years in the difference and the battles of Fatah and Hamas since the 2006 elections, to the military decision in the Gaza Strip for the remains of the Palestinian body.
The writers criticize the factions and the political leaders for wasting progress on the just cause of the Palestinian people, their addiction to opinion, the desire to rule and not to recognize the other, to oppose accusations and sometimes to shoot.
