The historically complex conflict in the Middle East is not a clash between Jews and Arabs as such, as the nationalists claim, but a clash between Zionist colonization, which is, and always has been, an ally of imperialism, and the indigenous population of Palestine.

When Zionists talk of "the threat of annihilation", they do not mean "physical extermination" but mainly the denial of special rights to Jews in Palestine. Zionists will only accept the principle of "one person ‒ one vote" as long as Jews are in the majority.
It is not by chance that people in Gaza are hungry; it is not by chance that they have no employment; it is not by chance that wages in Gaza are below the necessary minimum. All this is so because someone wanted it to be so. Someone in Jerusalem. A collective "someone".
The Yediot Aharonot journalist draws a line between the Israeli communists and the members of Matzpen who "smear the walls of houses in Jerusalem with slogans like 'Down with the occupation', demand the abolition of Zionism and the Jewish State as such, and like El-Fatah raise the slogan of a State that will accomodate both Jews and Arabs".
In our great enthusiasm at the achievements of Israel's independence and sovereignty we sometimes forget Zionism's negative aspect – it's cruel world outlook. In our ardour for Zionism, we ignore the effect of Zionist practice and Zionist ideology on the life and position of Jews who do not want to be Zionists.
The conflict in the Middle-East is primarily a Palestinian conflict, rather than a Judeo-Arab or Middle-Eastern one. It is primarily the problem of the Palestinian Arab people who have been deprived of their national rights and who are engaged in the fight for the reaffirmation of these rights.
