Since the inception of the permanent and pre-emptive imperial war by the US against the resistance under the guise of fighting Islamic terror, we have been proposing an anti-imperialist alliance with the Islamic parts of the popular resistance. Despite the growing Islamophobia the idea has been winning ground in the movement ever since with the due ups and downs.
There have been several occasions and moments of which one of the highest was the Beirut International Forum from 16-18 January, 2009, in a joint effort of the Lebanese left and Islamic forces of the Hezbollah milieu. Unfortunately the conditions to lend continuity to the initiative were not ripe. We continue, however, to promote the project of an Anti-imperialist Front.
