In recent days, we are witnessing a new escalation of further aggression of the Zionist state on the Palestinian people. The trigger was the kidnapping and murder of three young Israelis, whose bodies were found in the West Bank.
So far, no Palestinian organization claimed doing this. However, the Israeli government has blamed the Hamas organization and used it as an excuse to unleash a strong repression against Palestinians in Jerusalem and the West Bank, and also to launch a military offensive (through heavy shelling) on the Gaza Strip (governed by Hamas). At the same time, there have been numerous attacks to Palestinian carried out by alleged Israeli civilians groups. Among them, the murder of a young Arab aged 16, in the neighborhood of Shuafat in Jerusalem. After the murder of the young Arab there were clashes between residents of Shuafat and the Israeli army. In addition, a group of Jewish settlers set fire to a sheep farm belonged to the Palestinian Fadi Basim Bani Jabir in Aqabra village, south of the West Bank city of Nablus and left written the words “Bloody Vengeance”.
Along with this, Israeli soldiers have killed two young Palestinians in Hebron and in the Jenin refugee camp, claiming they “resisted being arrested”, and have arrested dozens of people and many houses from “suspects” have been demolished. Meanwhile, the Air Force has already performed more than 30 air strikes on the Gaza Strip. The Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, declared that “the offensive on the Palestinian areas could be more intense.”
We reject this new aggression of the Zionist state on the Palestinian people and call an intense international campaign to stop the attacks. We express again our solidarity and support for the Palestinians.
But at the same time, it is necessary to analyze the fundamental problem. The State of Israel was created in 1948 as an imperialist military enclave in the Middle East, based on the usurpation of much of the historical Palestinian territory and the violent expulsion of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their land, and condemned to exile.
From then until now the history of Israel has been the permanent aggression and repression against the Palestinians and to all the Arab peoples, as expressed by the constant attacks on Gaza or the building of the Wall of Shame encircling and cutting the West Bank. Since then, too, the Palestinian people have claimed the right to recover their usurped land and the return of the millions of exiles existing today.
In this sense, the only real way out for the continuing conflict in the region is the construction of a Single, Secular, Democratic and Non-Racist State throughout the historic Palestine. To this Palestine, without walls or concentration camps, could return the millions of refugees who were expelled from their homes and share the territory with those Jews who accept to live in peace and in equality. But in order to achieve this is absolutely necessary to achieve the complete destruction of the Nazi-Zionist state of Israel, for its origin and its essence is the main cause of this conflict.
