PFLP salutes military resistance in Al-Khalil and calls for escalation
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine praised the Palestinian resistance’s military operation against illegal racist settlers in Al-Khalil on September 1, 2010, saying that it was a heroic action that reinforces that our people’s resistance to the occupation and the settlers’ crimes againt our people and our land is steadfast, and that this action makes clear that the Palestinian people’s resistance is the main road to restore our rights and liberate or land, not the path of negotiations, concessions, and liquidation of Palestinian national rights.

Whenever Israel has an election, pundits begin the usual refrain that hopes for peace depend on the “peace camp” — formerly represented by the Labor party, but now by Tzipi Livni’s Kadima — prevailing over the anti-peace right, led by the Likud.
This has never been true, and makes even less sense as Israeli parties begin coalition talks after Tuesday’s election. Yes, the “peace camp” helped launch the “peace process,” but it did much more to undermine the chances for a just settlement.
