A brief biographical summary of the long life of Susie Barry, born as Sultana (aka Malka) Canetti in Turkey on 15 December 1928.
L’Etat d’Israël est structurellement raciste, c’est un Etat qui pratique l’Apartheid, selon la définition officielle de ce terme par les Nations Unies.
Israel’s racism is rooted in its nature as a settler state. Uprooting colonialist racism requires a change of regime, decolonisation – which in the case of Israel means de-Zionisation.
Accession of the Hebrew nation to a future socialist federation of the Arab East can only be voluntary. Moreover, it would be a grave error on the part of socialists to condone, let alone advocate, attempts at a forcible accession. But this means that Hebrew accession to the federation would occur by exercising self-determination.
Obituary: AKIVA “AKI” Orr was a revolutionary activist and writer, founding member of the Israeli Socialist Organization (Matzpen), an enchanting raconteur, and a unique, larger-than-life character
This article brings together my commitment to communism and my scientific work in the theory of social choice, particularly the measurement of voting power.
The Zionist movement and its State – ISRAEL, do not represent the Jewish people. They never did. They represent a particular trend within the Jewish people, namely – the nationalist trend.
...socialists often forego an independent critical socialist viewpoint and are content to tail behind this or that brand of radical nationalism. Independent positions such as those advocated in the present article, which were formerly held and defended by significant sections of the revolutionary left, have been abandoned or simply forgotten. They need to be reaffirmed.
How should we think about the Israeli–Palestinian conflict? Please note: "how" comes before "what". Before coming to any substantive conclusions – certainly before taking sides – we must be clear as to how the issue ought to be approached.
In 1997 I decided, as a student at Tel Aviv University, to write a seminar on Matzpen. At the end of that year a conference was held to mark 35 years since the organization was formed. I went there to document the conference with a camcorder, and found myself launched into a journey to follow people and ideas that until then I didn't know much about.
The memories of the summer vacations she spent as a child with her family in Tantura were shattered when when she realized how the village had been conqered, destroyed and emptied of its inhabitants in 1948.
With the worsening economic situation in Jordan, the population is being and will be pushed into one of two camps: Islamic fundamentalism or socialism. So far, Islamic fundamentalism is the more popular of the two. Such is the traditional stronghold of Islam in Jordan, that without even questioning the viability of this solution, people blindly accept the so-called Word of Islam.
The fact that Zionism continues to posit the Hebrew speaking Jewish people of Israel as part of a world Jewish nation testifies to the unique nature of both the Zionist project and the essentially artificial nature of Israeli nationhood. Politically and economically the basis of Israeli nationalism is the sponsorship by imperialism and the consequent attempts by Israel to dominate and subjugate the Palestinian people within and the Arab peoples without. This is the material basis of Israeli Jewish nationalism.
In 1982 the West Bank's entire hydrological system was integrated into the Israeli national water company Mekorot. A suppressed report, prepared a few years ago, saw this integration of water systems as an obstacle to Palestinian independence: "It may thus become practically and politically impossible to sever the water administration of the Occupied Territories from those of Israel".
