Rejection Front [1]

REJECTION FRONT [1]

Coalition of groups within the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), formed in November 1973 following the Arab defeat in the 1973 War to oppose any leadership strategy to seek negotiations with Israel. Formed through the impetus of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) with the support of the Iraqi Baʿth Party, the front united the most radical of the Palestinian movements, including the PFLP, the Arab Liberation Front, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine—General Command, the Palestinian Popular Struggle Front, and the Palestine Liberation Front (1977). Between 1974 and 1978 the Rejection Front contested all attempts, whether American, Arab, Palestinian, or Israeli, to start Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations. Political changes after the Camp David Accords of 1978 drew the front's constituents back into the PLO and the front ceased to exist by 1980.

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:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
