As'ad AbuKhalil describes one of his appearances on the Newshour on PBS during the 80s:
- While on the air, there was a claim of responsibility for some act by a group that used the name `Izz Ad-Din Al-Qassam. He was asked on the air whether he knew who Qassam is. Without a pause, he said: "Oh, yes. `Izz Ad-Din Al-Qassam is a close aide to George Habash."
