Kamal Nasser of the leaders of the Palestinian revolution. He died in Beirut in 1973 in an Israeli military operation that targeted him and two other Palestinian leaders, Kamal Adwan and Muhammad Yousef al-Najjar.

Kamal Boutros Ibrahim Yaqoub Nasser was born in Gaza City in 1924, and grew up in Birzeit. Kamal Nasser studied at the American University. He graduated from it in Beirut with a degree in political science in 1945. His mother, Mrs. Wadih Nasser, who is also educated and fluent in English, encouraged him to study law. However, his snappy nature did not tolerate additional years in the university. But he worked in the field of education for a period of his life, so he taught English, although he found himself only in the press to express his political ideas and fulfill some of his cultural ambitions. He soon cooperated with Hisham Nashashibi and Issam Hammad to publish the newspaper "Al-Jeel Al-Jadeed" in 1949 in Jerusalem. As if April, who was born and martyred on a permanent date with him, this newspaper was published on the fourth of the fourth month of spring. In the following year, he found himself participating in the founding of the Arab Socialist Baath Party in Ramallah, to begin a new phase in his life, moving him from prison to the Parliament, where he was elected as a representative of the Ramallah district in 1956, and his role in the newspaper "Al-Baath", which is not the famous newspaper, cannot be overlooked. Which bears this name and is issued in Damascus. Abdullah Al-Rimawi issued this newspaper in the West Bank as a spokesperson for the party's Palestinian organization there. Kamal was one of its pillars. He continued his journalistic efforts through the newspaper "Palestine", which was published in Jerusalem.

After the democratic experiment at that stage in Jordan's history set back, he went to Damascus. To witness the only Arab unity that was born in the twentieth century and ended seven months and three years after its birth. It is the United Arab Republic headed by Gamal Abdel Nasser. After the separation of unity between Syria and Egypt, he went to Cairo, where he received a medal of appreciation from President Abdel Nasser. As soon as the Baath Party took over the reins of power following the revolution of March 8, 1963 AD, it found its natural place in Damascus. He made personal efforts to narrow the dispute between his ruling party in Syria and President Gamal Abdel Nasser, who had all the appreciation, but the winds of politics ran against the wishes of Kamal Nasser's dream ship. His disappointment did not stop there, but rather differences quickly emerged within his party house. Kamal was clear and decisive in this matter, as he took the side of the legitimate leadership represented by the party's Secretary-General, Michel Aflaq.

Kamal Nasser's arrest was an embarrassment to his jailers. For this we can understand the ease of his escape from Damascus prison to Beirut, and from there to Paris, where he lived for a short period that left a clear impact in his poetry, through which he appeared as an expatriate drawn to a homeland that calls him. Thus, he found himself in the Palestinian West Bank again. And when June 1967 was defeated, he began to search for ways and forms to resist the occupation. He was arrested and deported, along with one of his close friends, lawyer Ibrahim Bakr. The phenomenon of the Palestinian revolution, whose first bullet was fired on 1/1/1965, is expanding. The first concern is occupied by our committed poet - a chronic fighter - and when the resistance factions ended up leading the Palestine Liberation Organization, Kamal Nasser was a member of the first executive committee led by Yasser Arafat, in the winter of 1969. Kamal Nasser soon established the Guidance and Information Department in M.T. .f. Although he used the word “conscience” as an adjective for him within the group, I can confirm that the one who called him “conscience” in the Palestinian revolution, and was always called by this name, was the martyr Abu Iyad, and soon his colleagues in the Palestinian leadership began calling him by this name. Like his personal name. As head of the Palestinian Information Department and thanks to his strong personal and cultural presence, Addameer became the head of the permanent Arab Media Committee emanating from the Arab League.

When the sky of the Jordanian capital became overwhelmed with anxiety and tension between the palace and the resistance, Kamal was in the first row of leaders who stood by Yasser Arafat with George Habash, Nayef Hawatmeh, Munif Al-Razzaz, Issam Al-Sartawi and others who were managing the negotiations, supervising the mobilization and managing the affairs of the organization. Kamal was assigned a mission to the Permanent Arab Media Committee in Cairo when the situation exploded. The events of September 1970 began. Lawyer Ibrahim Bakr assumed, in the absence of Kamal Nasser, the task of the first Palestinian media official. A period that aroused some confusion, and Kamal was covering it with a joking answer to hide his pain when his friends asked him why he was not in Amman during the massacre, and he said: Look at my ID. I am Kamal bin Boutros and a depository, and I am not Antarah bin Shaddad and Zabiba. This banter passed on to some of the PLO's stalkers, and they thought of its media official as something of fear. The reality was otherwise. Kamal Nasser submitted his resignation from the Executive Committee in March 1971, and Abu Ammar categorically rejected it, stressing the organization's need to develop its central newspaper, which is the detailed task on the scale of “conscience.” In that year, Al Kamalan Nasser and Udwan held a press conference in which they announced the establishment of the unified Palestinian media as a spokesperson for the organization's factions, popular organizations and national figures. To confirm the exclusion of a partisan character, Kamal Nasser changed the name of the magazine “Fatah” to “Palestine al-Thawra.” It is his right and the right of those who are mentioned in this chapter of the Palestinian novel to record Kamal Nasser's desire for Ghassan Kanafani to take over as the editor-in-chief of Palestine Revolution. However, Aba Fayez - may God have mercy on the two martyrs - told him in his loving Akkawi dialect: "The eye is not above the eyebrow." Then he confirmed his involvement in developing the magazine "Al-Hadaf", which spoke on behalf of the Popular Front, and Ghassan was its founder and editor-in-chief. However, he promised to send a competent writer and media person to represent the Popular Front in the Unified Media Commission, and he was.

On July 8, 1972, the Zionist intelligence assassinated Ghassan Kanafani in Beirut. The date of the first issue of Palestine Revolution after his martyrdom was published
