Fight Back News Service is circulating the following statement from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP).
PFLP marks the ninth anniversary of the assassination of Comrade Leader Abu Ali Mustafa with pledge to resist negotiations.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine marked on August 27, 2010 the ninth anniversary of the assassination of its leader General Secretary Abu Ali Mustafa by an Israeli occupation rocket in 2001. As the Palestinian people confront a new round of threats to their national cause and national existence, the legacy of Comrade Abu Ali Mustafa remains always, in his words, a legacy of “resistance, not compromise.” PFLP organizations throughout occupied Palestine marked this anniversary with a deep commitment to resist the new round of “direct negotiations” and to uphold Palestinian national rights, particularly the right to return, and Palestinian national unity, and carry forward the commitment of Comrade Abu Ali Mustafa in a new era of struggle.
The following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine:
On the second anniversary of the loss of Al-Hakim, Dr. George Habash, the founder of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Arab Nationalist Movement, the Front pledged to remain on the path and fulfill the goals of Al-Hakim and all of the martyrs of our people and our nation, until return and liberation, on the path of democracy, justice and unity, pledging that revolutionaries never die – and that the example of Al-Hakim as a thinker, organizer, and revolutionary leader will live on immortally in Palestine, the Arab nation and internationally.
In the Front’s statement, issued on January 26, 2010, the PFLP said that Al-Hakim was a historic leader who lit a flame in the darkness of occupation, aggression and oppression, the flame of popular revolution and the path of freedom that shatters the shackles of dependency and hegemony, raising the banner of resistance and unity as the only path for the restoration of our land and our freedom.

PFLP statement on 42nd anniversary: Time for a new political era of resistance and national liberation
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine stands today, 42 years from its founding on December 11, 1967. The PFLP was founded in response to the defeat of regimes and ideologies in the June 1967 war, and took action to initiate resistance in all forms on a strategic, long-term basis, mobilize the masses of the Palestinian Arab people to fight, neutralize the technological advantage of the occupation war machines through lightning attacks, and defeat the enemy and the entire Zionist and imperialist colonial scheme.
Looking at the anniversary of the founding of our Front, it was a culmination of the historic experience of our people throughout generations of confrontation of successive colonialist and Zionist attacks. It was an extension of this existing struggle and a quantitatively new expression that transformed and upgraded the movement, intellectually, politically and organizationally, growing from the glorious experience of the Arab Nationalist Movement, led by the founder of the ANM and the PFLP, Comrade Dr. George Habash.
