Leila Khaled versus the Smugosphere

From Leila Khaled’s autobiography “My People Shall Live” (Hodder & Stroughton, 1973)

But the majority were inclined towards guerrilla theatre as a means of “making revolution”. They performed a little for us.
As they were departing I was rather struck by a French anarchist student who proclaimed “Let chaos reign” and by a German who echoed the same sentiment. I exclaimed that the Palestinian people were an example of a society in chaos without authority and leadership, which as a result, was left at the mercy of the Zionist oppressor. I asked them what could they prescribe for us in order to overcome our kind of “alienation” -beards, long hair, and toy guns? They merely paused, they smiled, they reflected, they inhaled and passed their joints on in universal wonder.

Smugosphere, much?

And though it will probably cost me dearly, I can’t not embed this…
