Oppose all nationalisms

Author: 

Luke Hardy

In his article Proud to be a Zionist (Solidarity 400), Eric Lee argued “a Zionist is a person who supports the Jewish people’s right to a national homeland.”

Zionism (which today should be more accurately called Israeli nationalism) is not uniquely evil, as some on the left whose anti-Zionism flirts with anti-semitism would have us believe. Yet neither should it be exempt from ruthless criticism of all nationalisms and chauvinisms — the enemies of the international workers’ movement.

Letter: Proud to be a Zionist

Author: 

Eric Lee

Jeremy Corbyn’s brother recently made headlines by tweeting that “#Zionists can’t cope with anyone supporting rights for #Palestine”. That the tweet took place in the context of a heated discussion about how the Labour Party is coping with increasing allegations of anti-Semitism is not the point.

Eric Lee explains why he's proud to be a Zionist.

End the occupation of West Bank and East Jerusalem!

Since 1 October ten Israelis have been killed in knife, car and gun attacks, with several dozen more injured. In response to the surge in Palestinian violence, Israeli troops or settlers have killed at least 76 Palestinians, including bystanders and unarmed protesters. Over fifteen Palestinian children are among the dead.

For two states and reconciliation

Author: 

Dan Katz

During October nine Israelis and 60 Palestinians — including 15 children — have died in violence connected to a spate of Palestinian knife and car attacks.

The immediate reason for the spike in violence and renewed Palestinian street protests seems to have been rumours that Israel intended to change long-standing arrangements for worship at Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Abolish Israel? How, and then what?

Author: 

Tom Harris

In Socialist Worker of the 17 October, Nick Clark turns his attention to the new wave of violence in Israel-Palestine.

Clark writes about the indignity and oppression suffered by the Palestinians forced from their homes in East Jerusalem, starved and bombed in Gaza, harassed and driven off their land in the West Bank. He argues, correctly, that the violence has to be seen in this context.

Workers’ Liberty believes that the viable democratic solution to the conflict is an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel, with self-determination for both the Palestinian Arabs and the Israeli Jews. Israel should pay heavy reparations to the new Palestinian state to make it viable and to compensate for the great damage it has inflicted on the Palestinian people.

Palestine: the status quo cannot continue

Author: 

Adam Keller

After the recent killing of four Israelis by (most likely Hamas-affiliated) Palestinians, Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “promised” harsh retaliation. In fact Netanyahu’s promise was an announcement after the fact — already the Old City of Jerusalem had been closed to all non-resident Palestinians, and a hundred or more had been wounded by Israeli troops around the West Bank. This article by Adam Keller looks at the political backdrop to these events.
