By suggesting that the state of Israel should not exist, I am not being anti-Semitic. I am, however, being anti-Zionist. There is a distinct difference. An anti-Semite is someone who is prejudiced against Jews. An anti-Zionist, on the other hand, is opposed to that sector of the Jewish population who see it as their God-given right to establish a Jewish state in the Holy Land at the expense of the Palestinian people who have lived there for two thousand years. read full story / add a comment
mashrek / arabia / irak / lotte sul territorio / cronaca Sunday June 07, 2015 17:32 by Ilan S.
Le azioni unitarie non-violente - principalmente alcune manifestazioni del venerdì - non sono così impegnative per le forze armate israeliane. Tuttavia, l'attenzione dei media su queste lotte ed ancor di più la partecipazione ad esse di attivisti internazionali che poi rilanciano nei loro paesi la lotta internazionale, sono un fattore reale di preoccupazione per Israele. I controlli ai confini, che riuscivano ad impedire l'ingresso degli attivisti, non sono più tanto efficaci. La classe dirigente israeliana non è ancora nel panico, ma di recente appare molto preoccupata. [English] read full story / add a comment

First of all, I should mention a couple of issues in Kurdistan of Turkey (Bakur) that are strongly connected to the subject. Between 08/05 and 22/05/15 I visited a number of big towns in Bakur, including: Amed (Diyarbakir), Van, Colemerge (Hakari) and Gavar. Later I returned to Suruc and was hoping to cross the border to Kobane.
My main purpose for visiting there were three important points: first: understanding the similarity and differences between the Democratic Self Administration (DSA) in Bakur and Rojava. Second: Reconstruction of Kobane, and third the type of economy that Rojava can have in the future. Although the friends in Peoples ‘ Democratic Party (HDP) , other organisation and the Working Committees of Rojava in Amed and Suruc tried hard to arrange my trip to Kobane but it did not happen.
There are two important issues to talk about. These are:
First: The 07th June general election in Turkey: read full story / add a comment

La vittoria elettorale che doveva essere la risposta di Netanyahu alla rivolta in seno alla classe dirigente - gravida di minacce di ridimensionamento verso il suo giornale - si è rivelata una sconfitta parziale. Netanyahu dipende ora dall'appoggio del partito del centro-destra e dai partiti ortodossi e sta cercando disperatamente di riconquistare il controllo della situazione. La montante pressione su Israele minaccia di accelerare rapidamente. Ve ne sono le avvisaglie nella minaccia di espellere Israele dalla FIFA e nell'intervento della Corte dell'Aja. E' prossima l'iniziativa della Francia all'interno del consiglio di sicurezza dell'ONU. [English] read full story / add a comment

The non armed joint actions - mainly few Friday demos, do not cause the Israeli armed forces much load. However, the focusing of the media on these, and more so the international activist participating in them who enhance the international struggle when they return home, really worry the Israeli authorities. Their borders screening which succeed to prevent the entry of activists is not much effective. The Israeli ruling elite is not in panic yet, but lately they worry a lot. The president of Israel warn that the development of the B.D.S. must cause a real concern. The threat of the expulsion from the FIFA cause Israel to make concession to prevent the voting and even agreed to a special monitoring comity. The subject of the B.D.S. is more and more in the media and many of the speaker admit their fear from its intensifying. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

La crescente pressione operata dalla campagna B.D.S. non solo preoccupa la classe dirigente israeliana, ma ne ha già provocato una spaccatura. Che si era manifestata nelle dimissioni del governo di Netaniahu e nell'indizione di nuove elezioni. L'esito è stato persino peggiore per lui. Ha perso la maggioranza all'interno della destra. Il suo 61% (contro il 59%) è stato ottenuto solo coalizzandosi con il centro-destra di Kakhlon che aveva già bloccato le mosse della destra tradizionale e di alcune tendenze di neoliberismo radicale. Un nuovo equilibrio di potere all'interno della classe dirigente israeliana potrebbe portare nel futuro immediato ad una coalizione con il partito di pseudo-sinistra della lista sionista o addirittura ad una diversa coalizione senza Netaniahu o persino senza il partito Licud. In questo contesto proseguono gli sgomberi di palestinesi - sia in Israele che in Cisgiordania. [English] read full story / add a comment

The election which was a response to rebellion in the elite - threatening to restrict his daily newspaper - resulted in a partial defeat. He is dependant now on the support of the center-right party and the orthodox parties,and now he is trying desperately to regain control. The mounting pressure on Israel threatens to take a fast escalation. It is already expressed in the threat to expel Israel from FIFA and of intervention of the Hague Court. The French initiative in the UN security council is approaching. The escalation in transfer actions - both within Israel and the West Bank is an effort to recruit at least the support of orthodox parties and the extreme right. In spite of harsher efforts to repress the Palestinian struggle - both in occupied east Jerusalem and the popular non-armed struggle the struggle continues. The very optimistic activists already feel the approaching victory. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Revolutions are seldom made in favourable circumstances.  Russia 1917 emerged from the mass slaughter of WWI and the disintegration of an economy under the pressure of the supply demands of that war.  Spain 1936 emerged from a well planned and executed fascist coup amongst a powerful military backed and armed by international fascism.  Schemas for revolution that depend on quiet times and plenty may well be doomed from the start. read full story / add a comment

The B.D.S. which intensify the pressure not only worry the Israeli elite - it already caused a split in it. The split expressed in the initiation of law against the Netaniahu daily caused him to dismantle his coalition and call for election. The result was even worse for him. He lost the majority of the hard core right. The 61 (versus 59) coalition was achieved only with Kakhlon center-right that already blocked the main rightist moves and some of the extreme neoliberal tendency. A new power balance in the Israeli elite may result with a near future coalition with the pseudo left party Zionist List or even entirely different coalition without Netaniahu or even without the Licud party. With this back ground, transfer of Palestinians intensify - both citizens of Israel and in the occupy west bank... And the repression and struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadoom, Ma'asarah, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills and sporadicly in other places.

Il movimento femminile curdo vuole ovviamente distruggere il patriarcato e riferirsi alle esperienze del movimento femminista, ma si sforza anche di costruire una teoria originale adatta al contesto del Kurdistan.

With the conviction that our main contribution is not so much in changes on the ground but in the spirit of the struggle of the participants and the fulcrum we provide to the international lever. The gradual increase in international pressure which the Israeli high court verdict is that is a criminal act for Israeli to promote causing already much of damages in the economy of occupation and concern of the Zionist-colonialist Israeli ruling Elite. We see here again how small number of activists can initiate a turn in the course of history when it is applied in the ripe cross-road. It started in a small joint camp in Masha 2003 for struggle against the separation fence, after the idea raised half a year earlier in the European People Global Action conference in Leiden - in which activists from the East of the Mediterranean region participated too. The camp initiated struggles in various villages that riped at 2005 in the Bil'in struggle... which expanded and expanded... read full story / add a comment

A medida que continúa la revolución de Rojava, la naturaleza de su economía ha sido muy discutida. Como he escrito anteriormente, Rojava aspira a una economía social basada en el sistema de cooperativas. En las últimas semanas, varias personas me han preguntado por las ideas de Murray Bookchin sobre la economía: ¿cuáles son los aspectos económicos del municipalismo libertario? He creado un resumen de su pensamiento, sobre la base de los recursos enumerados al final de este artículo. -Janet Biehl read full story / add a comment

The frustrated Israeli state force who do not dare to prevent the weekly non armed popular demonstrations - Joined and purely of Palestinians, resort to shooting on demonstrators with frequent use of live fire by snippers. In the annexed regions of Jerusalem they no more pretend it is not an occupied area and apply there the occupation procedures - both in treatment of detaining children and houses demolition. The "hot" areas of the popular non armed struggle gradually expand but still far away from a general uprising. The international popular struggle worry the Israeli elite but the damages to the Israeli economy is still in the margins. It seems the Zionist settler colonialist elite which bribed the tycoons section of the capitalist elite with extreme neo liberal measures cannot do it any more as other sections of the capitalist elite (backers of Cakhlon) rebelled. read full story / add a comment

La saldatura tra le classi dirigenti sioniste e capitaliste che era iniziata nel 1948, è controllata dal 2010 dai magnati dell'economia. Quel neoliberismo "così vincente" è stato sfidato dalla lotta sociale, dai conflitti all'interno della stessa classe dirigente capitalista e minacciato dalla pressione internazionale che mina il potere calante del vecchio ordine da quando la destra ha perso la maggioranza assoluta nel parlamento a causa ora dell'opposizione sionista più moderata (Kachlon). Non è certo quanto velocemente l'arretramento della corrente neoliberista insieme alla sconfitta dei magnati e combinata con la pressione internazionale porteranno ad un arretramento anche del progetto di espansione sionista che espelle i Palestinesi.

La pur minima pressione delle potenze imperialiste su Israele affinché attenui la sua morsa sui Palestinesi delle aree occupate nel 1967 sta dando i suoi risultati (più in Cisgiordania che nel ghetto di Gaza). Infatti Israele sta dando lavoro ai circa 100.000 Palestinesi dei territori occupati. La maggior parte dei posti di blocco sono stati rimossi. La rivolta dei Palestinesi in Cisgiordania prosegue solo grazie ai canali di una piccola minoranza di attivisti che tengono vive lotte sia unitarie che separate durante il weekend.

The merger between the Zionist leadership and the capitalist elite which started 1948 picked in the Tycoons dominance, at 20010. The "too successful" neo-liberalism was challenged by the social struggle, conflicts within the capitalist elite and threatened by international pressure yielded the diminishing power of the old order when the right lost its absolute power in the parliament depending now on the opponent of the milder Zionist right (Kachlon). It is not sure how fast the retreat in the neo-liberal trend and the defeat of the Tycoons combined with the international pressure will yield also retreat in the advance of the Zionist settler and transfer effort. Mean time the joint struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Kadum, Ma'asarah, Southern Hebron Hills, Sheikh Jarrah, the Bedouins of the south, Dahamsh... with additional locations from time to time.

Over four years since mass uprisings ousted sclerotic regimes in Tunisia and Egypt, it can seem that the initial hopes represented by these movements lie in tatters. Libya, Syria, Yemen and Iraq remain mired in bloody armed conflicts that have led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands and displaced millions more within and across borders. In the pivotal case of Egypt, military rule has returned through the violent crushing of protests, the arrests of an estimated 40,000 people and the rebuilding of the repressive structures of the [Hosni] Mubarak era. Elsewhere, autocratic governments look more secure in their rule today than they have for many years. read full story / add a comment
