Cousin of the PALESTINE LIBERATION ORGANIZATION (PLO) spokesman Kamal Nasser, who was assassinated in Beirut by Israeli agents in 1973, Naser was perceived as a moderate pro-PLO figure in the WEST BANK.
When pro-PLO demonstrations broke out at Bir Zeit after the November 1974 appearance of the PLO chairman, YASER ARAFAT, at the United Nations, Israeli authorities arrested Naser and four others whom they accused of inciting the protests and of associating with illegal organizations, a reference to the underground Palestine National Front. Deported to Lebanon, Nasser made his way to Amman, Jordan, where he retained his position as president of Bir Zeit University and worked out of its liaison office. From 1981 to 1984, Nasser also served on the PLO executive committee and, for a time, as head of the PALESTINIAN NATIONAL FUND. Israel allowed Nasser to return along with twenty-four other deportees in May 1993, whereupon he resumed his duties at Bir Zeit University.
