It was Israel's offensive on Gaza that sparked off the new war in Lebanon. Since it withdrew from Lebanon in 2000, Hezbollah has carefully avoided any clashes with the Israeli army on Israeli territory (limiting themselves to the area of Shaba in Lebanon, which continues to be occupied by the Jewish State). The moment chosen by the shia-ite fighters for their first attack, and the rhetoric that followed, indicates that their intention was to reduce pressure on the Palestinians by opening up a new front. Their action can therefore be seen as the first military act of solidarity with the Palestinians from the Arab world. Whatever one might think of what Hezbollah has done, it is important to understand the nature of Israel's war against the Palestinians in Gaza.

Ilan Shalif is already 70 but it does not prevent him arriving every Friday at the demonstration against the separation fence in Bil'in and confronting the soldiers of the Israeli IDF. Every Friday for the last year and a half, like a watch whose battery never runs out, he travels the road from Tel-Aviv to the Palestinian village of Bil'in.
The demonstrations at Bil'in also see the participation of left-wing Israeli activists, many from the extreme left like the Anarchists Against The Wall, who arrive from the centre of Israel and demonstrate side by side with the Palestinians. There are also international activists from organisations like the ISM and the foreign media, whose photos from the place are often published all over the world.
The Israeli ruling elite, who counted on the willingness of the PLO and Fatah to compromise in order to let them keep some of the territories occupied during the 1967 war (if pressed long enough), made a miscalculation. Part of these weakening efforts involved leniency towards the fundamentalist Hamas, that was supposed to substitute the nationalist tendency with a religious agenda. The effects of this strategy led simply to a weakening of the corrupt Palestinian authority to levels that became too high to control, giving the Israelis in return a more fundamentalist and less corrupt/bribable Hamas government.
An Israeli anarchist communist briefly examines the results of the elections to the Palestinian parliament which saw the defeat of the previous majority party, Fatah, in favour of the fundamentalist Hamas, running under the name of "Change and Reform".
Beaucoup l'ont dit: l'assassinat de l'ancien Premier ministre libanais Rafic Hariri, un ami proche de la France et notamment du président Jacques Chirac, est un événement pas comme les autres au pays du cèdre. Ce n'est pas la première fois qu'un assassinat se perpétue dans le pays!
