    TRANSCRIPT: ARAFAT: "The masses of the revolution, of which you are part, have decided that the conference should be convened in this city under the authority not of the state, that is tied with the Central Intelligence Agency, but in the shadow of the guns of the revolutionaries."



    "The first point is that the Rogers plan which is based on the U.N. resolution of November 22 1967 (No.242) cannot be implemented; it calls for the liquidation of the revolution, and therefore cannot be implemented as long as there is a single gun in the hands of the revolutionaries in this area."

    Background: As the crisis between Palestinian commandos and King Hussein's Government was developing in Amman, Al Fatan leader yasser Arafat paid a visit to the Palestine Students' Conference in the city.

    There were 200 casualties in the gun battles of the week ending Sunday (6 September), but by then the city was quiet and peaceful, with all road blocks removed, after a night free of shooting.

    Students from all over the world gathered in Amman for the Palestine students' Conference, and Arafat talked about its being held "in the shadow of the guns of the revolutionaries".
