The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) was founded in 1967 by George Habash. It is a Marxist-Leninist organisation that is strongly anti-Zionist and is traditionally the second largest of the Palestinian political groups in the occupied territories of East Jerusalem and the West bank.
Israel and its Zionist backers do not wish the world to know that many Palestinian are secular and socialist. Such information does not fit with the narrative that the Israelis wish to seed. It is preferable for Israel if westerners believe that all Palestinians are hard-line Muslims who hate anyone who isn’t. Of course the truth is very different, and so it is of the utmost importance that Europe and North America come to understand that Palestine is largely secular in outlook and modern in conduct.
If this truth can be spread to those who currently, and often naively, support the rogue state of Israel, then perhaps we will witness a sea-change in how Palestine is treated by the West. Currently, the beleaguered people of that historic and beautiful land are being ignored by the majority of the western population. Educating them as to the truth will motivate them to move against the Apartheid regime.
Ignorance and apathy in the West, is killing the people of Palestine. Israel should not be allowed to set the agenda. Socialist and secular groups, such as the PFLP, have a central role to play in countering deceitful Israeli propaganda.
