Behind the bloody episode of Black September, that fatal month of 1970 which ended with the brutal repression and expulsion of the Fedayeen from the Kingdom of Jordan, lies a major tear in the Palestinian camp.

It was a duel to the death between the two souls of the Resistance: the nationalists of Fatah, guided by their emblematic leader Yasser Arafat, and the extremists of the National Front for the Liberation of Palestine of George Habash.

In a tense international context, the latter forces the hand of the entire Resistance, leading to the Jordanian bloodshed.
