Columnist Ali Mohammed al-Surari says in his article that the ways of struggle for liberation and independence are many and varied. None of the could be sacred and obligatory so as without it the liberationist struggle would not be so without it. Glorifying and praising the spirit of martyrdom should not make us forget that the liberationist struggle goes according to certain strategies and designed targets and results studied beforehand.
What is fit and suitable at certain time may not be so at another. Thus the Palestinian factions should behave on a basis of the criteria of benefit and loss. The important thing is that the struggle should lead to two results: the first is preventing the Palestinian-Palestinian confrontation and the second is to expose the enemy and isolate it internationally.
