The PLO has lost a determined worker on their behalf and all
Palestinians have lost one of the true enormous figures of our time.
For the last three decades, Dr. George Habash was a champion for
Palestinian leadership and democracy around the world, serving as a
strong illustration and crusader for those who stood against
oppression and injustice.
As part of his enduring legacy, Dr. Habash was a committed advocate
for the founding of a strong and viable Palestinian State.
A nationalist icon and revolutionary, Dr. George Habash founded the
PFLP in Damascus-Syria in 1967 and for several years was
secretary-general of the movement, which became one of the three
components of the PLO.
