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.
