Ahmad Saadat

Ahmad Sa'adat (also transliterated from Arabic as Ahmed Sadat/Saadat, Arabic: احمد سعدات)(born 1954) is a Palestinian militant, and Secretary-General of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a militant Palestinian group.

Saadat became the Secretary-General of the PFLP in October 2001. He succeeded Abu Ali Mustafa to the post, after Mustafa was assassinated by Israelis at his office in Ramallah in the West Bank. He stands for the dismantling of the Israeli state, opposes the Oslo Peace Process and believes in the right of return for all Palestinian refugees and their descendants back to the former British Mandate of Palestine.

He was imprisoned in Jericho by the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) in 2002. In March 2006 Israeli forces attacked the jail and took Sa'adat to Israel; he is currently in Israeli custody. Hamas has demanded his release, along with that of many other Palestinian prisoners, in exchange for the captured soldier Gilad Shalit.
