While Avneri warns against militarization and Spartanization, he never ceases to glorify the Israeli army. While repeatedly declaring his desire for peace, he becomes a rabid chauvinist once a war breaks out. While critical of zionism he pleads loyalty to patriotism and accuses his opponents of damaging the national interest.
The confiscation of the Arab land near Gush Etzion has no 'security' value today (in the era of aeroplanes and missiles), but is simply a brutal eviction, grabbing land from the Arab legal owners for the establishment of Jewish settlements. This is an unlawful action, a "colonialist" annexation.
The zionist leftists have no right to call Matzpen members "warmongers". He who has partaken of a feast in which the dove of peace was served roasted must not be allowed to sport her white feathers!
Joseph Weitz Diary; World Zionist Organization; Zionism – or anti-Semitism? ; Declaration by Eli Lobel following an attack by Zionist thugs against Israca members, Paris, Dec. 9, 1969; To the Participants in the International Conference of Jewish Lawyers & Jurists, Israel, August 1969; Towards a Democratic Solution to the Palestine Problem (Draft resolution presented by the DPFLP, September 1969)
The Palestinian refugees have every right to the homeland from which they were driven, and the denial of this right is at the heart of the continuing conflict. A permanent just settlement of the refugees in their homeland is an essential ingredient of any genuine settlement in the Middle East.
Shabtai Tevet: If I do not accept nowadays that it is the religious law that defines who is the Jew to whom justice was done, then I recognize myself suddenly as someone who was a criminal all his life, who exiled innocent peasants and city dwellers.
The "moderate" zionists merely asked for the installation of paramilitary colonies to populate the whole of the West Bank area; the Palestinians, or the majority of them, would find themselves in an encircled enclave, densely populated and entirely controlled by Israel.
This analysis of Israel's special role in Africa in the service of US imperialism, was published in the September 1969 issue of the American left-wing monthly Leviathan. Soon after its publication the article was reprinted by ISRACA in London. In the meantime it has also been translated to Hebrew, but was then disqualified for publication in "Matzpen" by the Israeli military censorship. Eight years later, in 1977, "Matzpen" finally got the permission to publish it.
How can Israeli officials declare that they represent "The only democracy in the Middle East" when they deny the most elementary civil rights to the Arabs who have lived in Israel since 1948?
Not only against the Soviet bureaucracy; Not only against the reactionary rulers of Iraq; Also against Israeli occupation and oppression!
La création de l'Union Socialiste des pays du Moyen-Orient, est le but final et la seule solution stable aux problèmes nationaux et sociaux de la région, y compris le conflit israélo-arabe.
Ceci est le premier numéro d'Israc, journal du comité d'action révolutionnaire israélien (à l'étranger), réalisé par des Israèliens qui se trouvent pour le moment dans différents pays occidentaux.
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.
