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.

Collective Decision-Making and Supervision in a Communist Society – Moshe Machover

October 10, 2009

This article brings together my commitment to communism and my scientific work in the theory of social choice, particularly the measurement of voting power.

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.

Israelis and Palestinians: Conflict and Resolution – Moshé Machover

November 30, 2006

How should we think about the Israeli–Palestinian conflict? Please note: “how” comes before “what”. Before coming to any substantive conclusions – certainly before taking sides – we must be clear as to how the issue ought to be approached.

The Middle East – Still at The Crossroads: A Socialist Position on the Palestinian Problem ‒ By Moshé Machover

January 10, 1989

The sense in which socialists ought to be “more radical” than liberation nationalists is not in vying with the latter’s nationalism, but in putting forward revolutionary social aims. Liberation nationalists do not propose to overthrow the existing social order; what they want is just to put an end to the oppression of their own nation. Socialists, on the contrary, must seek to promote in every national liberation struggle the aim of overthrowing the existing order of class exploitation.

The Middle East at the Crossroads – by Abu Sa’id and Moshé Machover

January 10, 1989

This is a re-print of an article that was originally published in September 1969. “The formula that restricts the struggle to Palestine alone, despite its revolutionary appearance, derives from a reformist attitude which seeks partial solutions within the framework of conditions now existing in the region. In fact, partial solutions can only be implemented through a compromise with imperialism and Zionism”.

“Cruel Zionism” in Action ‒ Book Review by Moshe Machover

August 10, 1987

This excellent book recounts and documents a significant piece of Middle Eastern history; and it does so in a humane way, full of empathy for the Iraqi Jews who, like Abbas Shiblak himself ‒ a Palestinian refugee from Haifa ‒ were victims of Zionism.

To Live Together ‒ a Dialogue between Said Hammami and Moshé Machover

October 1, 1984

Whatever may be said about Hammami’s political views on particular points, there is no denying the non-sectarianism of his attitude to the Israeli Jewish population: he recognizes that they constitute a nationality just as much as the Palestinian Arabs, and that they, too, are entitled to national right in Palestine. To hear a Palestinian spokesman say this was not necessarily congenial to fanatics on both sides.

Following the Israeli-Egyptian Treaty: Against the Autonomy! — Moshe Machover

March 29, 1979

The autonomy is in reality exactly what it looks like on paper — an alibi and cover not for the creation of a Palestinian state but for more or less rapid colonization and annexation to Israel of the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

Zionism and its scarecrows – Moshé Machover and Mario Offenberg

October 10, 1978

This article aims to show how the objective and subjective hench­men of Zionism in the West, in their attempt to fluster the critics of Zionism, present ‘leftist’-tinged arguments in support of the Israeli state, but especially directed against its Jewish opponents of the anti­-Zionist socialist movement inside Israel.

Summing Up Our Position on the National Question – Moshe machover

January 10, 1978

We struggle both against Zionist racism, which discriminates against Palestinians as individual human beings, and against the Zionist oppression of the Palestinians as a people. Or, putting it in positive terms: we support both the human and the national rights of the Palestinians.

Dossier : Les bourgeoisies arabes ; Introduction par Moshé Machover

June 30, 1977

La vraie question est si ce développement est susceptible d’être — qualitativement et quantitativement — d’une ampleur telle qu’il transforme le monde arabe d’un domaine néocolonial étroitement subordonné au système capitaliste mondial et aux forces dominantes, en une puissance capitaliste autonome tout comme, disons, le Japon ou la France.

The National Movement in the Arab East at the End of the Road – Moshe Machover and Emmanuel Farjoun

August 8, 1976

A necessary condition for the success of any struggle against Israel’s regime — including the struggle for democratic rights — is that it is a joint Jewish-Arab struggle.

Entretien entre Saïd Hammami, représentant de l’Organisation de la libération de la Palestine (O.L.P.) à Londres, et Moshé Machover, de l’Organisation socialiste israélienne (Matzpen).

Zionism, National Oppression, and Racism — Moshe Machover

March 10, 1976

Racist discrimination always pertains to individual rights. The rights denied are not the collective rights of an entire group, but the individual rights of every person belonging by origin to a given group. Zionist racism is principally a matter of practice, due to the fact that Zionist colonization could only be implemented at the expense of the Palestinian Arabs’ rights — both their national and individual rights. The Zionist project — past and present — is a project of colonization by Jews of territories inhabited by Arabs, turning an Arab country into a Jewish country. In order to implement such a project, it is necessary to discriminate in favor of Jews and against Arabs in matters of immigration, citizenship, land ownership, and so on — right down to discrimination regarding the rights of returning residents.
