The Arab Left didn’t just collapse of its own accord, and the method of its collapse was not fast or sudden. A generation of Arabs today forget that the Arab communist parties in Iraq and in Sudan, for example, were the biggest Arab parties, and without artificial support from the military establishment in those countries. The communists were deeply embedded throughout Iraq, and the religious schools in Najaf suffered the loss of the youth to the Iraqi Communist Party. All that has changed. Some of the elements of the phenomenon of the fall of the Left were local, and some of them were regional, and some of the others were global. The French Communist Party is about as powerful as the Wa’d Party in Lebanon, and the Italian Communist Party lost its luster some time ago. What has changed?

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.

textPalestine-Israel, The first serious crack in the Israeli Zionist ruling elite* 16:55 Thu 28 Jan by Ilan S. 0 comments

It is hard to assess what is the part of the joint struggle and the B.D.S. in the serious crack in the Israeli elite. It was expressed by the leader of biggest opposition party - The Zionist List which suggested a partial agreement of withdrawal (even from part of the expanded Jerusalem). Since 1967 war, all the years the official position was that Israel will retreat from most of the occupied territories of the 1967 war if the Palestinian will agree to a peace pact that will include among other conditions the non return of the 1948 refugees. As it was clear that no Palestinian leadership will be able to do that it was clear to all that the monolithic consensus of the Zionist parties is to continue the occupation for ever. It is not surprising that even the leader of the radical leftist Zionist party Merets oppose this radical suggestion for withdrawal with out the (non achievable) final peace pact.

Le brutte notizie sono che la stragrande maggioranza degli Israeliani è a favore di un unico Stato - inclusi i centristi e persino la sinistra sionista (che dice di volere la soluzione dei "due Stati" ma con precondizioni impossibili). Le buone notizie sono che le potenze imperialiste le quali sostengono lo status quo stanno gradualmente cedendo alla pressione dell'opinione pubblica dei loro Stati che non vuole il regime di apartheid e di sgomberi imposto da Israele. La lotta unitaria non armata aveva suscitato ampia attenzione e spinto attivisti di ogni parte dei mondo ad impegnarsi nel movimento per mettere fine all'occupazione israeliana. [English]

The bad news are that the overwhelming majority of the Israelis support it - including the centrists and even the Zionist left (who claim they want "two states" solution but with impossible pre conditions). The good news are that the imperial powers whose support to the status qua are gradually yielding to public opinions pressure of their citizens who do not agree with the Israeli apartheid-transferor regime. The non armed joint struggle initiated wide attention and drew participants from all over the world with international movement dedicated to put end to the Israeli occupation. (A short video about two kids in Bil'in got in few days two million views.). The anarchists against the wall and other like minded among the palestinians and abroad still struggle for the end of the Zionist settler colonialist/transferor project and not just for the end of 1967 occupation.

Le autorità israeliane ammettono di non avere nessuna soluzione e nessuna strategia per fermare o anche contenere la intifada "non-organizzata" fatta per lo più a livello individuale e da giovani. Gli arresti di massa di centinaia di minorenni non sembra aver raggiunto nessun risultato. I tentativi di sgombero non si fermano, anzi sono in crescita nella Valle del Giordano, nell'Area C, a Gerusalemme e persino nei confini del 1948. Sui media israeliani la controversia riguarda il riconoscimento che c'è già un solo Stato e che bisogna organizzare un migliore ordine del Bantustan prima che la pressione internazionale costringa ad un ritiro sostanziale dai territori occupati con l'espansione del 1967. Le notizie dei media sulla campagna B.D.S. sono di solito ristrette solo ad un incremento del boicottaggio. [English]

The Israeli authorities admit it have no solution or a strategy to stop or even restrict the third "unorganized" mainly individualist and of youth. The mass arrest of hundreds of under age children do not seems to have any effect. The transfer efforts do not stop, and even increase in the Jordan valley, area C, Jerusalem, and even within the 1948 borders. The controversy in the Israeli media is mainly about the admitting it is already one state and about initiating a better Bantustan order before international pressure will force a more substantial retreat from 1967 expansion. The B.D.S. media news are usually restricted only to dramatic additions in it. The Nebi Saleh community is in the focus of the efforts to stop the joint struggle and its Friday demos. In spite of it, the regular Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Ma'asarah, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, West of Hebron Hills are accompanied from time to time by other communities.

textPalestina-Israele, l'unico stato che la lotta unitaria cerca di cambiare 16:39 Mon 07 Dec by Ilan S. 0 comments

Si lotta quando si ha la speranza di un cambiamento in corso. Si lotta quando ci si rifiuta di accettare lo stato di cose presente come l'unico possibile futuro. Si lotta anche quando la minima speranza tiene viva la tua dignità. E ci sono persone la cui collera è così forte che non c'è nessun ragionamento che possa trattenerle. Ora, quando sembra evaporata la speranza di un futuro migliore in comune e quando si è ridotta al minimo anche la speranza di un migliore futuro personale, la collera di tanti giovani è più forte della preservazione dell'istinto di vita... si aspetta solo quel grilletto rischioso che spinge un altro ragazzo o un'altra ragazza ad andare in una missione suicida. [English]

textPal-Isra, The one state the joint struggle try to change*. 14:08 Mon 30 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

You struggle when you have hope for a developing change. You struggle when you refuse to accept the present as the only possible future. You struggle even when the hope is low just to keep your dignity from evaporating. And there are people their rage is so strong that no reasoning can hold them back. Now, when the hope for a better common future evaporated, and the hope for a nice personal future is even lower, the anger of lot of youth is stronger than the preservation of life instinct... it is just waiting for a chancy trigger to pull another boy or girl and send them to a suicide mission. And the mighty Israeli state just start to admit that their brutality reached the wall it cannot overcome. The military elite already stated to reveal it in the open that the new emerging "individualist" Intifada cannot be stopped by force. For those who are not burnt out or desperate the non armed joint struggle is the only sane road. [Italiano]

textPale-Isra - The one state the "realist" Zionists strived for and the (joint) struggle*. 13:36 Sun 08 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

In the beginning of the British mandate of the both sides of the Jordan, when Palestine was divided by the UK into two entities - each on one side of the Jordan, the secular national socialists accepted it while the rightist opposed. They still have in their movement anthem: "two sides to the Jordan - this side and the other are ours too". After Israel grabbed 75% of the west bank of Palestine in 1948 war, the Zionist elite of all trends was urging and waiting for opportunity to enlarge its share. The 1956 war failed to supply it but the 1967 one gave Israel all the west bank (and some more like Sinai - which it had to give back). The efforts to transfer the Palestinian out was successful in 1948 war, was less successful in the 1967 war, and much less substantial later - in spite of the efforts. The fear of transfer which inhibited the urge to struggle - both within 1948 borders and the enlarged 1967 ones is gradually dwindling and the non armed popular struggle - though hesitant, is gradually collecting momentum.

textE' il momento della Terza Intifada - la lotta unitaria continua 19:08 Sun 25 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Il fallimento da parte dell'imperialismo USA nel prendere il controllo di paesi relativamente indipendenti come l'Iraq e la Siria ha portato al compromesso con l'indipendente Iran. Il ruolo minaccioso di Israele durante la trattativa ha permesso ad Israele di poter agire più liberamente nella repressione contro i Palestinesi. Il ritorno della Russia sullo scenario siriano ridà fiato ad Israele che può intensificare i suoi tentativi di assumere il controllo dell'area C in Cisgiordania. La terza intifada è una risposta disperata dei Palestinesi che vedono la fine dell'occupazione israeliana allontanarsi fino a scomparire all'orizzonte. La lotta unitaria continua non come speranza che cresce ma come tenace Tsumud (persistenza, ndt) di non arrendersi. [English]

Le classi dirigenti del Medio Oriente sono molto agitate in questi giorni, al pari delle loro controparti occidentali ed "internazionali", di fronte alla decisione di Putin di intervenire direttamente in Siria. Infatti, questo è il modo in cui loro "intendono" e fanno politica: combattere contro i loro contendenti regionali per conquistare l'egemonia regionale, appoggiati da schieramenti internazionali reciprocamente opposti.

Le grandi mobilitazioni che hanno attraversato il Medio Oriente alla fine del 2010 sono state riassorbite se non addirittura trasformate in devastanti conflitti tra forze autoritarie in competizione. Quell'ondata risparmiò il Libano, che dopo il ritiro delle truppe siriane (di Assad) nel 2005 era governato da una classe dirigente che aveva da una parte i filo-iraniani, cioè la coalizione 8 marzo, guidata dagli "sciiti" di Hezbollah e dall'altro i filo-sauditi della coalizione 14 marzo, guidata dall'oligarca "sunnita" Hariri.

L'ISIS, insieme all'Islam politico, ha molte somiglianze col Nazismo e con lo Stalinismo. Si tratta di un movimento complesso, al tempo stesso rivoluzionario e reazionario, anticapitalista e ostile alla classe lavoratrice, antimperialista e aspirante imperialista. Al pari del fascismo occupa quello spazio dove le attuali lotte sociali e politiche si arenano, dove le vecchie classi dirigenti non possono più governare, ma anche dove i movimenti popolari di base non riescono a rovesciare il sistema.

Hemos sido hijas de esta nueva etapa histórica para los pueblos en lucha, que inicia con el quiebre de la política tradicional imperialista en medio oriente y el insostenible programa económico de austeridad en lo que se ha denominado “occidente”. Respectivamente, la primavera árabe y los movimientos de indignadxs figuraron en las primeras planas de los grandes medios de comunicaciones, que con grandes matices, ilustran una nueva era para los movimientos sociales que retoman las históricas banderas de antiimperialismo, anticapitalismo y libertad completa para quienes tienen que sufrir dictaduras militares, civiles y comerciales.

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]
