Independent Nasserite Movement (INM)

INDEPENDENT NASSERITE MOVEMENT (INM)

Lebanese Sunni political organization, created in 1958 by young students opposed to the pro-Western policies of Camille Chamoun. Backed by Egypt, its moments of glory were under the leadership of Ibrahim Koleilat, between 1975 and 1980, when it was allied with the Palestinian Fatah, while retaining its own armed branch, al-Murabitun (the Sentinels). In 1982, the invasion of Lebanon by Israel forced the Murabitun and the INM to go underground. In June 1983, a split in the group gave rise to the Independent Lebanese National Alliance, under the leadership of Samir Sabbagh, former assistant to Ibrahim Koleilat. In December 1986, a new rift led to the creation of the National Independent Movement, headed by Samir Sabbagh. Weakened by much dissidence, the INM then waned in influence in the Lebanese political arena.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
