Protest for two states!

Gaza border graphic

This graphic, compiled from UN figures, is taken from the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

The deaths have been fewer in recent weeks — one, four, four on Fridays 13, 20, 27 April, as against 44 total for the first five Fridays.

That must be partly due to the protests against the killings organised within Israel, and also by left-wing Jewish groups in the USA.

Gaza: mobilising for an internationalist response

Submitted by martin on 12 April, 2018 - 9:57 Author: Martin Thomas

The reckless killing and wounding of Palestinians by Israeli army fire at the Gaza border in recent weeks is likely to be followed by many more clashes.

The organisers of the Palestinian demonstration on the Gaza side of the border fence, and the political-Islamist Hamas, which rules and politically dominates Gaza, plan a series of further demonstrations on Fridays up to the anniversary in mid-May of the declaration of the state of Israel.

Protests inside Israel

Submitted by martin on 12 April, 2018 - 9:53 Author: Ira Berkovic

There is an anti-occupation, anti-war movement within Israel, albeit a beleaguered one.

The Israeli human rights organisation B’Tselem has launched a campaign calling on soldiers to refuse orders, what they describe as illegal orders, to fire on demonstrators. Hundreds mobilised at short notice to demonstrate outside the ruling Likud party’s Tel Aviv headquarters in protest at the killings in Gaza, with around a hundred attending a joint Palestinian-Jewish “Freedom Seder” in Hebron, in the occupied West Bank.

Gaza protests

The Israeli army has killed 44 Palestinians, and injured hundreds more, after Israeli Defence Force (IDF) snipers opened fire on demonstrations on Israel’s border with the Palestinian territory of Gaza, on Fridays between 30 March and 27 April.

One protestor, 18-year-old Abdel Fattah Abdel Nabi, was shot in the back as he turned to flee IDF fire. Another victim was Gazan journalist Yaser Murtaja, killed by a bullet to the abdomen underneath his bullet-proof vest clearly marking him out as a member of the press.

A 16-year-old who rebelled

Submitted by SJW on 10 April, 2018 - 7:23 Author: Ira Berkovic

Ahed Tamimi, a 17-year-old Palestinian woman, was filmed slapping and kicking Israeli soldiers outside her home in response to their repression of a demonstration in December 2017, when she was 16.

She was arrested and jailed, and has now struck a plea bargain to serve eight months in jail, with a NIS5,000 fine (around £1,000).

According to the Israeli human rights campaign B’Tselem, this is an example of ongoing mistreatment.

The Morning Star on the Douma massacre, Russia, and Israel

Submitted by martin on 10 April, 2018 - 3:38 Author: Martin Thomas

The Morning Star's editorial of 10 April 2018 shows how perception of world affairs can be skewed by the Star's fixed insistence on seeing Russia (even way-post-USSR, blatantly capitalist Russia) as the good guy, and Israel as the world's prime source of evil.

Israel did a bombing raid against Assad on 8 April after the Douma massacre of 6 April, says the Star... as a ploy to divert attention from the killings in Gaza.
