National Liberation League (NLL)

The National Liberation League (NLL) was a communist-led national front that was active in the final years of the British mandate. The League continued its activities in the West Bank under Jordanian rule and, in 1951, became the Jordanian Communist Party (JCP). Although illegal in Jordan as either the NLL or the JCP, the communists remained active through various front organizations. They were forced further underground when the Jordanian government banned all political parties in 1957 in response to the wave of anti-imperialist enthusiasm which swept the Arab world after the Suez War.
