LEBANESE COMMUNIST PARTY (LCP)
Dear Comrade :
Through you, the Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP-1930, the Philippine Communist Party) sends warmest fraternal greetings to all office-bearers, members and friends of the Lebanese Communist Party (LCP) as your party celebrates its 90th Anniversary on October 24, 2014.
We salute the LCP’s long fighting history, starting from the struggle against the French occupation, the struggle against zionist terrorism, and up to the present struggle against the US-NATO imperialists and their zionist partner who have created and directed all the terrorists groups that have been sowing chaos in Syria, Iraq, the Lebanon and elsewhere. We all know that imperialism and zionism have crafted the “New Middle East Plan” with the aims of balkanizing Arab and other countries of the Middle East into small sectarian statelets, of controlling all resources of your region, and of perpetuating the zionist colonization and humiliation of the Palestinian and other neighboring peoples.
We pay homage to the LCP’s fighters and militants --- the martyrs who lost their lives, the veterans who have suffered so much over so many decades, and the present generations who are carrying on the tradition of steadfast struggle to rebuff imperialist, zionist and other terrorist attacks ; to defend Lebanon’s national unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity ; and to build a democratic and secular society oriented towards socialism.
The LCP’s contributions to the struggle against the Haganah and Irgun terrorist gangs during the Nakba period, to the formation of the “Patriotic Guards” and the “Al Ansar Forces” to fight zionist attacks, and to the launching of the “Lebanese Patriotic Resistance Front” which liberated Beirut and the whole of Lebanon from the zionist invaders, are high points in the libertarian annals of the Middle East. The LCP’s consistent support for the Palestinian resistance, its initiative in establishing the “Arab Left Forum” which now counts on 28 progressive parties in 11 Arab countries, as well as its hosting of meetings of communist and workers’ parties, are shining examples of proletarian internationalism.
The PKP-1930 stands in solidarity with, and wishes every success to, the LCP’s pressing struggles to rebuff the imperialist-zionist-terrorist conspiracies, and to advance democratic changes in Lebanon.
With communist greetings,
ANTONIO E. PARIS
General Secretary, PKP-1930
