The article focuses on the position of Palestinians in the war in Lebanon as of August 1976. It states that Palestinians were unexpectedly being defeated by Lebanese Christians and abused in many Middle East capitals.

It says that the Christians are ready to eliminate Palestinian power in the country. In a speech, Syrian President Hafez Assad criticized Palestinian Liberation Organization (PIO) chief Yasser Arafat for pursuing the war.
