Wikipedia, 2-7-12: (Muhammad Zaidan [in rom.] (December 10, 1948-March 8, 2004); also known as Abūl Abbās or Muhammad Abbās, was the founder and leader of paramilitary group the Palestine Liberation Front (P.L.F.); born in 1948 in a Syrian refugee camp; joined the radical, pro-Syrian Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command under Ahmed Jibril in 1968; in 1977, major disagreements arose between the P.F.L.P.-G.C., the P.L.O., and other Palestinian factions based in Lebanon; Zaidan, who opposed Syrian involvement in the Lebanese war, left the P.F.L.P. and created the P.L.F. with Talaat Yaacoub, which eventually split into three separate factions (and then later re-merged); Zaidan's faction of the P.L.F., which was the largest of the three, moved its headquarters to Tunisia)
