The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine said on November 3, 2009 that the Palestinian Authority, and all Palestinian parties, must immediately end any and all illusions about the United States or its president, Barack Obama, and instead reject its "negotiations" based on surrender and rely on the Palestinian people and their resistance, unity and national rights. Comrade Rayya Amin, of the Information Office of the PFLP, said that it must be abundantly clear that Barack Obama is nothing more than U.S. imperialism in new packaging, saying that the United States is an enemy of the Palestinian people and the Arab people, and all progressive and peoples forces in the world.

Palestinian Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) is Designated by the U.S. as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. Although the PFLP has no known formal infrastructure in the U.S. for recruiting or financing, it is politically supported by U.S. Palestinian and U.S. far-left organizations. The organization carried out a long list of terrorist attacks in the international arena, particularly hijackings against aviation targets. The majority of these attacks were carried out under the direction of George Habash’s associate Dr. Wadi’ Haddad, better known to Palestinians as “The Master.”

2. firing two rockets at Asqelan at 1:29 am on June 22;
3. firing a rocket east of Khan Younis at 11:39 am.
The PFLP's armed wing, in the West Bank and Gaza, the Abu Ali Mustafa Brigades, draws much of its support from student organizations in universities like Al-Quds University (eastern Jerusalem), Bir Zeit University (Ramallah area), An-Najah National University (Nablus), and the Arab American University - Jenin. The movement has thousands of active or passive activists in the West Bank, and a few hundred behind bars in Israeli prisons.
At the PFLP's Sixth National Conference in 2000, George Habash stepped down as general secretary. Abu Ali Mustafa was elected to replace him, but was assassinated on 27 August 2001 when an Israeli helicopter fired rockets at his office in the West Bank town of Ramallah. The PFLP murdered the right-wing Israeli Tourism Minister Rehavam Zeevi in 17 November 2001 in retaliation. Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) has consistently been the second-largest of the groups forming the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), the largest being Fatah. Currently the PFLP is boycotting participation in the Executive Committee of the PLO. It considers both the Fatah-led government in the West Bank and the Hamas government in the Gaza Strip as illegal due to the lack of new elections to the Palestinian National Authority since 2006.
