Comrade Maher al-Taher, member of the Political Bureau of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and leader of its branch outside Palestine, said on August 20, 2010 that the goal of direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is to liquidate the Palestinian cause, not to reach a political solution, noting that it is clear from the events and actions of Israel that it is impossible to reach a political solution with an entity that demands total control of all aspects of Palestinian existence.

Palestinian revolutionary women on International Women’s Day

The following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. The Marxist-Leninist is posting it as part of the continuing series of articles on women’s liberation in honor of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day (March 8th):

The following interview of Comrades Leila Khaled and Shireen Said was conducted by British journalist Sukant Chandan and published on March 8, 2010 – International Women’s Day. We republish the interview below:

The Palestinian people’s oppression continues due primarily to the financial, diplomatic, and military support that the Zionist state receives from the USA and secondly to the acquiescence of pro-Western states in the region.  After the fall of the Zionist state’s long lost brother — the Apartheid state of South Africa — the Palestinian struggle remains perhaps the leading and most potent anti-imperialist struggle in the world.  Therefore, Palestinian women are a central example of what role women can play in the struggle to free themselves, their families, their communities, and their nation from imperialism.

Comrade Sa’adat transferred to Eshel prison as PFLP calls for prisoners’ freedom

The following is from the website of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine:

Comrade Ahmad Sa’adat, the imprisoned General Secretary of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, was once again moved from one prison to another, this time to the isolation unit at Eshel prison from the isolation unit in Ramon prison. The PFLP immediately condemned this action as part of an ongoing, and failed, attempt to undermine the morale and steadfastness of Comrade Sa’adat and his fellow Palestinian prisoners.

The PFLP statement, issued on February 16, 2010, said that these arbitrary measures fall within the context of an official policy of pressure, attempted intimidation and reprisals against Comrade Sa’adat that has continued since the moment of his abduction from Jericho prison through his continued forced isolation.

Israel’s new strategy: “sabotage” and “attack” the global justice movement

The following article by Ali Abunimah is from Electronic Intifada:

An extraordinary series of articles, reports and presentations by Israel’s influential Reut Institute has identified the global movement for justice, equality and peace as an “existential threat” to Israel and called on the Israeli government to direct substantial resources to “attack” and possibly engage in criminal “sabotage” of this movement in what Reut believes are its various international “hubs” in London, Madrid, Toronto, the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

The Reut Institute’s analyses hold that Israel’s traditional strategic doctrine — which views threats to the state’s existence in primarily military terms, to be met with a military response — is badly out of date. Rather, what Israel faces today is a combined threat from a “Resistance Network” and a “Delegitimization Network.”

PFLP on the second anniversary of the loss of Al-Hakim: Revolutionaries never die!

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.
