Ansar-3 Prisoners’ Call for Closure of “Death Camp”

2017-12-30T11:50:34+02:00July 31, 1988|Categories: Khamsin Bulletin 3, Khamsin Bulletins|

We, thousands of Palestinian detainees, have been thrown by the Israeli authorities into Ansar-3 Detention Centre, without regard to the most rudimentary judicial formalities, including our right to know the charges levelled against us. We are kept in difficult circumstances under the burning desert sun, where the temperature by day reaches 45°C and drops to below freezing at night; in an area teaming with reptiles, insects and rats. But the severity of nature is no match for the cruelty of the soldiers of the Detention Centre, with their arbitrariness and constant brutality and violence.

Communiques of the Uprising

Soon after the eruption of the Palestinian uprising (December 1987), a clandestine United National Leadership (UNL) began to lead, plan and direct the struggle. The UNL has published a series of numbered and dated communiques (bayanat), which have had an important role in mobilizing the masses and directing their struggle. We publish here a full translation of recent communiques: nos 16, 18 and 20, and a summary of no 19.

Michel Khleifi’s “Wedding in Galilee” ‒ film review by Dr Nur-eldeen Masalha

While there is certainly a strong point to be made about the human in each Palestinian and Israeli and the significance of emotions and individ­ual desires and needs, it is nonetheless essential to avoid reducing the real conflict to a confused plethora of feelings and sensations. The Palestinian-Zionist/Israeli conflict remains at heart a real political conflict about land, homeland, political identity and national survival.

Voice of the Uprising ‒ Toby Shelley

Survey of communiques issued by the leadership of the Palestinian uprising [intifada]: from the degree of popular adherence to the urgings and appeals contained in these documents, it is clear that they are the authentic voice of the masses. Their power, and that of their authors, lies not only in their ability to speak in the name of the PLO and (latterly) to reiterate its positions, but ‒ more crucially ‒ in their intimate connection with the stone-thrower and the striker, a connection embodied in the local Popular Committees.

Appeals by Palestinian Women

2017-12-23T11:36:00+02:00June 10, 1988|Categories: Khamsin Bulletin 2, Khamsin Bulletins|

Palestinian women have played a leading role in the demonstrations, not fearing death but crying out: "Victory or martyrdom, but no to the occupation". At the same time, women have organized them­selves in relief committees to help the people who suffer during the uprising. They have also put themselves to danger by trying to rescue youths who are being beaten up by Israeli soldiers. As all other Palestinians, Palestinian women have been subjected to beating, imprisonment and martyrdom.

Yesh Gvul Appeal

2017-12-23T11:35:46+02:00June 10, 1988|Categories: Khamsin Bulletin 2, Khamsin Bulletins|

In Hebrew, yesh gvul means "there is a limit"; it also means "there is a border". A protest group by this name came into being in Israel following the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Its members pledged themselves to refuse to do military service in Lebanon. More recently, during the Palestinian uprising in the occupied territories, the group extended its pledge and it now covers refusal to take part in the Israeli repressions in those territories.

‘Ad-Kan Appeal

2021-05-31T13:58:39+03:00June 10, 1988|Categories: Khamsin Bulletin 2, Khamsin Bulletins|

This letter is on behalf of an organization of faculty members at Tel Aviv University called 'Ad-Kan ("No Morel"), an ad hoc group formed in response to the extreme gravity of the situation in the occupied territories. While the members of 'Ad-Kan hold diverse political views, they are united in their commitment to bring an end to the occupation through negotiations with the Palestinians on the basis of mutual recognition and equality.
