A PLO co-founder dies

From Ma'an:
A member of the Arab Nationalist Movement's liaison department, Ahmad Mahmoud Al-Jamal, died on Saturday.

Al-Jamal was born in 1940 in the Palestinian village of Lubya. He was one of the founders of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).

Al-Jamal worked in the PLO's Damascus-based office until his death.
If the PLO is the "sole representative of the Palestinian (Arab) people," and if the West is so hot on saying that it is "moderate," why are its offices in Damascus?
