On January 28, little more than a week after Israel concluded its brutal military campaign against the Gaza Strip, James Kirchick published the latest installment (www.advocate.com/exclusive_detail_ektid71844.asp) in his growing corpus of articles about tolerant, gay-friendly Israel and homophobic, "Islamofascist" Palestine. Although Kirchick has published essentially the same article under different titles -- "Palestine and Gay Rights" (www.advocate.com/exclusive_detail_ektid33587.asp) and "Palestinian Anti-Gay Atrocities Need Attention" (www.innewsweekly.com/innews/?class_code=Op&article_code=783) -- and although he regurgitates the same flimsy, unsupported arguments in all of these articles, we do not write to question his intellectual prowess or journalistic qualifications. In fact, Kirchick’s diatribe against Palestinians and the "radical" gay activists who support them would not warrant a response if it did not, in our view, represent something much bigger and more dangerous.

The old world order, in which US interests in the region East of the Mediterranean let Israel - a bastion of the US - continue with its Zionist settler colonialist in the 1967 occupied Palestine, has ended. Europe has started to advance its own interests, which are not in accord with the Israeli bastion. The independent steps of Europe are enhanced by its public opinion against Israeli colonialism to which the joint struggle in the West Bank contributes a lot. It was the approach of the imminent crisis that forced the Israeli Prime minister to call for elections, to save himself from the normally-timed election when the crisis would be the main agenda. The murder of the Palestinian minister of the popular struggles has focused attention on the ferment and rising of the popular non-armed struggles of which Israel is contemplating suppression with systematic use of live ammunition.

Lo Stato di Israele è stato costruito soprattutto dai socialisti nazionalisti che controllavano il 75% dell'economia nel 1949. A causa della dipendenza dalle potenze imperialiste i cosiddetti socialisti investirono soprattutto nella costruzione di una elite capital-sionista che perse il potere nel 1977. I conflitti di interesse all'interno della classe dirigente capital-sionista iniziarono a mutare l'equilibrio tra la piccola fazione di industriali favorevole all'espulsione dei palestinesi e la fazione capitalista integrata nella globalizzazione neoliberista che voleva sfruttare i palestinesi ed i lavoratori dei paesi vicini.

Israel was built mainly by the national socialists who owned 75% of the economy in 1949. Due to dependence on the imperial powers the so-called socialist elite invested a lot in building the Zionist-capitalist elite to which it lost power in 1977. Conflicts of interest within the Zionist-capitalist elite started to change the balance between the small tycoons section that supported the Zionist wish to transfer the Palestinians out and the capitalist section that integrated in the neo-liberal globalization who wish to exploit the Palestinians and the workers of neighboring countries. The restructuring of power relations in global capitalism after the last crisis had its Israeli expression in the near-bankruptcy of the tycoon elite and the present collapse of the government coalition. The economic damage which has already resulted from the B.D.S. campaign which is enhanced by the joint struggle seems to be hastening a shift in the balance of powers.

textPalestina-Israele - la lotta unitaria in tempi turbolenti 15:41 Fri 14 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

La lotta popolare non-armata delle comunità palestinesi, a cui aderiscono gli Anarchici Contro il Muro ed altri, non è una lotta di "liberazione nazionale" o di "autodeterminazione" della nazione palestinese. E' invece la lotta del popolo palestinese, la cui stragrande maggioranza è composta di lavoratori, contro la minaccia di sgomberi e contro lo sfruttamento imposto dal progetto coloniale sionista di Israele. Nessuno di coloro i quali partecipano alle lotte e che non stanno dentro l'elite palestinese nutre illusioni sull'elite palestinese e sullo Stato che governeranno e gestiranno dopo la fine dell'occupazione.

textPalestine-Israel - the joint struggle in turbulent times.* 02:03 Tue 11 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

The popular unarmed struggle of Palestinian communities joined by the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall and others is not a struggle for the "national liberation" or "self determination" of the Palestinian nation. It is the struggle of Palestinian people, of which the overwhelming majority are working people, against the threat of transfer and the suppression and exploitation by the Israeli Zionist settler colonialist project. None of those involved in the struggle who are not in the Palestinian elite have illusions about the Palestinian elite and the state they will rule and manage after the end of the occupation. None of those involved in the struggle believe that the end of the direct occupation will solve the 1948 Nakba and the refugee problems. However, they still prefer the end of the occupation and independence from Israel, over direct Israeli rule, as it will not be an agent of transfer or of such brutal suppression and exploitation.

textPalestina-Israele, la lotta unitaria mette a nudo la vera natura di Israele 17:22 Fri 07 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

Per anni Israele ha cercato di neutralizzare la pressione delle persone più illuminate nascondendo il suo brutale razzismo e le sue attività omicide ricorrendo alla memoria dell'Olocausto quale giustificazione per tutti i suoi atti efferati man mano che venivano rivelati. Tuttavia, questa mascherata durata anni ha portato ad una crescente disillusione verso il "sogno sionista" e ad un veloce allentamento dei vincoli precedenti. La destra predica apertamente la sua ideologia razzista estremista. I coloni "paramilitari" sono a ruota libera. [English]

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle to the backdrop of Israel no longer hiding its true nature* 01:19 Sun 26 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Throughout the years Israel has tried to neutralize the pressure of more enlightened people by hiding its brute racism and murderous activities by recruiting the memory of the Holocaust as justification for all its heinous acts when revealed. However, as the masquerade has been exposed in recent years and more and more are disillusioned from the "Zionist dream", the restraints are being loosened fast. The rightists preach their extreme racist ideology in the open. The "paramilitarist" settlers get a freer hand. The transfer of Palestinians both within the 1948 borders and these occupied in 1967 is being done in the open. Though it is still restricted mainly to the Israeli area of the Bedouins in the south and the C agricultural regions of the 1967 borders, the "gloves" have been removed. In the same new mode, repression of the non-armed popular struggles has intensified in the last few weeks and we cannot guess what the limit of the new repression mode will be - if at all.

In questi tempi di barbarie messe in atto dallo Stato Islamico dell'Iraq e del Levante (ISIS), la resistenza di Kobane, terza città più importante dei curdi, che si trova al confine tra la Siria (o ciò che resta di essa) e la Repubblica di Turchia, rafforza la speranza di una società non-settaria e democratica in Medio Oriente con influenze in Asia Centrale.

imageUne réponse anarchiste-communiste à « Rojava : une perspective anarcho-syndicaliste » Nov 25 by Anarkismo Editors Group 0 comments

Ce texte est une réponse à l’article « Rojava : une perspective anarcho-syndicaliste » écrit par « K.B. » et qui a été récemment publié sur le site web « Ideas and Action » de la Workers Solidarity Alliance (WSA, Alliance de Solidarité des Travailleurs) basée en Amérique du Nord. Dans l’article il y a une attaque contre la révolution du Rojava (le Kurdistan syrien) au Moyen-Orient, un évènement dans lequel le Parti des Travailleurs du Kurdistan (PKK en Kurde) a joué un rôle clé. Cette réponse n’est pas publiée de mauvaise foi ou avec de mauvaises intentions envers la personne qui a écrit l’article ou envers son organisation mais, bien plutôt, afin de clarifier et de partager notre pensée concernant la question du soutien anarchiste à la fois aux mouvements de libération nationale et à ce qui, pour nous, est une lutte très importante et inspirante qui se déroule au Moyen-Orient. L’objectif est d’avoir un débat franc et amical qui nous emmène tous et toutes de l’avant. [English]

textRojava: Fantasie e realtà Nov 08 by Zafer Onat 0 comments

La resistenza a Kobane che dura da oltre 45 giorni ha spostato l'attenzione dei rivoluzionari di tutto il mondo sulla Rojava. Grazie al lavoro svolto da Azione Rivoluzionaria Anarchica (DAF, Turchia, ndt), i compagni anarchici di varie parti del mondo hanno inviato messaggi di solidarietà alla resistenza di Kobane (1). Questa posizione internazionalista è di grande importanza per il popolo che resiste a Kobane. Tuttavia, se non analizziamo cosa sta accadendo veramente e se invece facciamo del romanticismo, i nostri sogni potrebbero essere delusi in un breve lasso di tempo. [English]

The Kobane resistance that has passed its 45th day as of now has caused the attention of revolutionaries all over the world to turn to Rojava. As a result of the work carried out by Revolutionary Anarchist Action (DAF), anarchist comrades from many parts of the world have sent messages of solidarity to the Kobane resistance.(1) This internationalist stance without a doubt carries great importance for the people resisting in Kobane. However if we do not analyze what is happening in all its truth and if we romanticize instead, our dreams will turn to disappointment in short order.

imageDeclaración Internacional Libertaria de Solidaridad con la Resistencia Kurda Oct 22 0 comments

Desde algunos años, el movimiento kurdo se está acercando a las ideas libertarias. Aunque no se trata de un movimiento anarquista, este cambio muestra que las ideas anarquistas de libertad e igualdad a través de la solidaridad, nuestras ideas de horizontalidad y de democracia directa radical en contra del Estado no solo son validas y fuertes, sino que son también necesarias para que los movimientos sociales acaben con la herencia autoritaria de la izquierda. Expresar nuestra solidaridad con Rojava y el movimiento kurdo es nuestra responsabilidad, pues representan la esperanza en esta región y porque es una lucha de los oprimidos en contra de los opresores. Las verdaderas luchas no son nunca perfectas pero llevan a diversos potencialidades de construcción de una sociedad libre. Mientras expresamos nuestra solidaridad con el movimiento revolucionario en Rojava entendemos también que nuestro papel es seguir desarrollando los principios centrales de nuestras ideas para compartirlas con los y las revolucionari@s en el mundo. - Grupo editorial de Anarkismo.net [English]

Depuis plus de deux ans, le Rojava (Kurdistan syrien), est engagé dans un processus révolutionnaire spécifique. Resté longtemps à l'écart de celui proposé en Syrie car considéré comme trop marqué par l'idéologie panarabe et nationaliste, puis confronté à une contre-révolution interne fasciste et religieux takfiri, le Rojava développe ses propres institutions sociales, chasse les troupes du régime de Bachar, et affronte les forces politico-religieuses ou nationalistes arabes qui tentent de liquider cette dynamique autonomiste.
