Palestine-Israel: Latest News From Joint Struggles

Middle EastMay be it is because the Arabic Spring and the wave in the developed countries raised too much the hopes for change followed by disillusions. May be it was (like the big wave in Israel that mobilized about 10% of the population) a kind of releasing pressure valve... The struggle still continue, but the number of participants diminished and the moral of those who continue is not high. The smaller flame of hope for a radical change in our tortured home land is nourished by the change in the imperial power balance, the gradual withdrawal of the US from the region and the increasing pressure for change by Europe with the B.D.S. at its front. But, the joint struggle continue, and the gradual bunt out of many of the old timer activists of the anarchists against the wall is partly replaced by the new wave of total refusnics of mandatory military service for high school graduates and the activists of the anarchist-communist Ahdut.

Palestine-Israel: Political negotiations fail to stop joint struggle

Middle EastThe political negotiations intended to prevent the involvement of international forums by the Palestinian ruling elite do not stop the joint struggle of popular movement which invigorate the B.D.S. efforts and the local non armed struggle. The increased suppression of the struggling communities and the transfer efforts in a choice location do not extinguish the flames of struggle and the persistent of the "Tsumud". Night raids in Ni'ilin, Bil'in, Nabi Saleh, and Qaddum, and arrests increase. The threats of dispersing the Friday demos with live ammunition towards the stone throwing Shabab is expressed from time to time by shots at youth legs. In Bil'in, the members of the Israeli anarcho-communist organization start to fill the gap resulted from the diminishing participation of the anarchists against the wall initiative. Our black and redNblack flags are accepted in a friendly mode.

Palestine-Israel: B.D.S. threatens Israel, which escalates mistreatment of Palestinians

Middle EastThe emergence of the B.D.S. finds its expressions in both the Israeli media, the ruling elite, and the medium level of the capitalists. The harassment of the Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, and Qaddum is not applied to Bil'in which is in the focus of international attention. It seems the state forces got specific orders to be much more "lenient" even with the stones throwing Shabab. Lot of the Israeli activists lost their persistence as the development on the ground is not expanding and the advance of the B.D.S. is too abstract for them. For many Israeli and the Palestinian activists the big picture is not clear enough and they do not feel that we are winning. They do not really feel the satisfaction from the fact that our joint struggle is the important leaning point the lever of the B.D.S. need for its success.

Palestine-Israel: Israel Escalates Repression Against Palestinians While Opposition Continues

Middle EastThe acceleration of the Palestine divestment movement (B.D.S.) and international pressure is causing a near panic within the ideological Zionist elite. Their response is an increase in repression directed against Palestinians and efforts to transfer them from key areas supported by the Zionist elites. The Israeli state has forced back the irregular settlers and initiated more action itself. The harassment of the Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, and Qaddum, who are not in the focus of international media, is more vicious than ever. Bil'in, which earned international fame and attention of media, got partial immunity. The chanting by the demonstrators expressed the real opinion on the two states pseudo solution: "free free Palestine from the river to the sea". The "no state redNblack flags" which the anarchist-communist Ahdut members hold high in Bil'in demos are accepted without any reservation.

Palestine-Israel: The future is knocking on the door of the joint struggle.

Middle EastThe Israeli media is ongoing reporting on the Israeli elite of the boycott on Israel that not only became significant economically and politically but also just two steps from avalanche. Lot of activists who do not understand that the battle will not be resolved here but in the international area lost heart as the immediate gains are small. They do not understand that the local struggle is the Archimedes point the lever of the B.D.S. is leaning on. So, the joint struggle continue. The international activists who come here carry the struggle in their countries when they return home. Whether understanding the importance of the joint struggle or not, hundred Israelis, and hundreds of Palestinians are every weekend in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrakh, South of Hebron Hills, and sporadicly in other locations too.

Palestine-Israel: The Joint Struggle Continues as International Pressure Mounts

Middle EastThe clash that was lately in Ramalla between the Palestinian authority police and strikers demonstration of employees of the United Nation agency stress it again: Anarchists against the Wall initiative activists and many of the internationals, and even many Palestinians, have joined the struggle against occupation and settler project. The expectations for a Palestinian state are low and marginal and very few have any illusions about the expected freedom in the "free Palestine" they chant. The intensifying international pressure on Israel brings hesitant hopes about the nearing changes in the region. And the joint struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadumm, Ma'asara, Sheikh Jarah, and South Hebron Hills, with hesitant contemplations to join from other villages.

Palestine-Israel: You Won't Believe What People Are Doing This Week to Resist Israeli Apartheid

Middle EastThis week the focus of struggle enlarged a bit to include the ugly racist politics of the Israeli naZionist establishment regarding the refugees. The same strategy of sporadic vicious attacks on the back ground of ongoing harassment and pressure to get out applied to the Palestinians within the 1968 borders and the new 1967 ones is also applied to the 53 thousands African refugees. The racism inbuilt in the Zionist settler colonialism which built Israel and expand it in every opportunity is only refraining from harsher measures because of international pressure. Though Israel never adopted international conventions (with support of overwhelming majority of its Jewish community) it refrain from prolonged defying them. Thus, it did not kill the refugees freely on the border. It just make them as miserable as it can and put increasing numbers in a concentration camp.
