A Communist should have largeness of mind and he should be staunch and active, looking upon the interests of the revolution as his very life and subordinating his personal interests to those of the revolution; always and everywhere he should adhere to principle and wage a tireless struggle against all incorrect ideas and actions, so as to consolidate the collective life of the Party and strengthen the ties between the Party and the masses; he should be more concerned about the Party and the masses than about any private person, and more concerned about others than about himself. Only thus can he be considered a Communist.
Marking the 45th anniversary of the founding of the Front, we are pleased to make this classic, historic yet strikingly relevant document available on our website. The Strategy presents a full strategic vision for liberating Palestine, including a review of the enemy forces and the forces of the revolution; a class analysis of the Palestinian and Arab movements; a vision for a liberated Palestine; and close study of organizational questions for building a revolutionary party. It presents a clear vision of the Front and the Palestinian national liberation movement of its time and remains an important and useful analysis for the present.
The Strategy for the Liberation of Palestine, was published by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in February 1969. It was translated at that time by the PFLP Information Department and widely circulated in English and other languages.
