Hebrew self-determination – Moshé Machover

January 12, 2017

Accession of the Hebrew nation to a future socialist federation of the Arab East can only be voluntary. Moreover, it would be a grave error on the part of socialists to condone, let alone advocate, attempts at a forcible accession. But this means that Hebrew accession to the federation would occur by exercising self-determination.

Israel: A Zionist State – Aki Orr

July 29, 2009

The Zionist movement and its State – ISRAEL, do not represent the Jewish people. They never did. They represent a particular trend within the Jewish people, namely – the nationalist trend.

Resolution of The Israeli–Palestinian conflict: A socialist viewpoint – Moshé Machover

February 10, 2009

…socialists often forego an independent critical socialist viewpoint and are content to tail behind this or that brand of radical nationalism. Independent positions such as those advocated in the present article, which were formerly held and defended by significant sections of the revolutionary left, have been abandoned or simply forgotten. They need to be reaffirmed.

Jordan’s Road to “Democracy” ‒ by Akram Kand and Jayne Peters

August 10, 1990

With the worsening economic situation in Jordan, the population is being and will be pushed into one of two camps: Islamic fundamentalism or socialism. So far, Islamic fundamentalism is the more popular of the two. Such is the traditional stronghold of Islam in Jordan, that without even questioning the viability of this solution, people blindly accept the so-called Word of Islam.

For a Democratic, Secular State of Palestine; a Reply to Moshe Machover ‒ by Tony Greenstein

August 10, 1990

The fact that Zionism continues to posit the Hebrew speaking Jewish people of Israel as part of a world Jewish nation testifies to the unique nature of both the Zionist project and the essentially artificial nature of Israeli nationhood. Politically and economically the basis of Israeli nationalism is the sponsorship by imperialism and the consequent attempts by Israel to dominate and subjugate the Palestinian people within and the Arab peoples without. This is the material basis of Israeli Jewish nationalism.

Holding the Green Line: Israeli Ecological Imperialism ‒ by Les Levidow

February 10, 1990

In 1982 the West Bank’s entire hydrological system was integrated into the Israeli national water company Mekorot.

November 10, 1989

The policies of the great majority of the Israeli-Jewish society are influenced neither by Palestinian restraint nor by lack of it, but by Palestinian force, by the Palestinians’ effectiveness in causing harm to Israel ‒ be it military or financial, through other coun­tries such as the USA.

Iran after the War ‒ by Maryam Poya

November 10, 1989

The left and other secularists failed to mount a serious challenge to Islamization. The acceptance of Islam by the bulk of the population does not signify cal­lous indifference to the slaughter of individual leftists; rather, it is an expression of despair. The population feels powerless.
