The Palestinian Resistance – Collection of Broadsides and Paper Items, Late 1960s

16 broadsides and paper items of the Palestinian organizations Fatah, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, the PLO and others. Israel, ca. late 1960s. Arabic, Hebrew and English.
Items include:
1. Early broadside of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, dating from the first exchanges of fire leading up to the Battle of Karameh (the first military conflict between the IDF and the Palestinian organizations, on 21 March 1968). Written in Arabic and English, it blames the Zionist leadership for the killing of Palestinians.
2-7. Bilingual (Hebrew-Arabic) broadside, printed on both sides, on behalf of the Al-Asifah Forces. The broadside addresses the "Zionist invaders" with a sharp message: "Al-Asifah will persecute you at all times and in all places to destroy your entity …". Six copies.
8-9. Broadside in Arabic on behalf of the Fatah organization, on the occasion of the fourth anniversary of the death of Ahmed Musa, the organization's first "shahid", killed during an attempt to blow up the national water pipeline. Two copies.
10. "The Masses Oppose the Occupation", early Palestinian pamphlet of the resistance organizations, compiling news items related to the struggle between the IDF and the Palestinian resistance.
11. Propaganda broadside for Palestinian schools on behalf of the Fatah military wing, calling on citizens to join the struggle for the Palestinian homeland.
12. Illustrated postcard marking the Fatah's day of establishment. Illustration of a groaning horse with the Fatah emblem.
13-14. Two illustrated envelopes of the French airmail service, apparently printed by the PLO embassy in Paris. The envelopes convey a seemingly peaceful message of co-existence under Palestinian rule in Palestine.
15. Issue of a monthly periodical of Fatah, November 28, 1968. Includes an article about women in revolution and war, news items, poems for soldiers, and more.
16. Photocopy of a booklet with a political manifest of Fatah, "for the fourth year of the revolution" (the establishment of Fatah).
Size and condition vary. Fair overall condition. Folding marks, closed and open tears to some of the broadsides. Light stains. Slight damage to text on a few posters. Pen inscriptions.
Provenance: Shlomo Shva collection.
