A view from inside Israel

05-01-2004 01:22

A lot of reports of the situation within Palestine and Israel are coming out currently, either from people working in Palestine, or in the mainstream press from outside. As a Jewish person myself I found this report from inside Israel extremely important and reassuring, as it gives information about the strength of feeling by many Israelis in the country against what is going on. This is not a race issue, and most people who are upset by the army's behaviour and the governments policy in the occupied territories are reacting in humanitarian and political dimensions, including all those Jewish people outside of Israel who are campaigning against this system and this regime. So for the inspiration of others like myself, for the consideration of those who have seen only reports of Israelis as army members, and for those who argue aggressively and often hotheadedly that all criticism of Israel is somehow anti-semitic (themselves the only ones aplying this race-label), here is a report I received a couple of days ago from the Israeli Peace Group Gush Shalom, who do fantastic work in the midst of an increasingly fraught and in many areas degenerating society.

The World Economic Forum, Warsaw, 28-30/04/2004

01-01-2004 23:18

The participation of the World Bank and the World Economic Forum in the political decisions of Poland is little known about. But when the WEF comes to Warsaw (28-30/04/2004) it is highly likely there will be an 'alternative economic' forum and militant action to open the grounds for debate.

An Israeli Surgeon's Story

28-12-2003 10:06

Israeli surgeon Shmuel Yurfest once reattached the severed hand of a Palestinian bomb-maker who had a "work accident." But sadly, Dr. Yurfest won't be saving any more "militants."

About a year after he saved the bomb-maker's hand, he was blinded and partially deafened when a 19-year old girl exploded next to him at a shopping mall: Surgeon Blinded by Bomb After Healing Militants. This article is unusually sympathetic for a Reuters release.

NO TO THE CONSTITUTION of a Europe of capital and war

25-12-2003 16:05

To organise a Front of NO has become a task of high-priority for the anti-globalization movement and all the European anti-capitalist forces, in particular with the prospect of referendums to be held in each state next year. These consultations offer a magnificent opportunity to call on youth, workers and oppressed nationalities to show a massive rejection to this reactionary Europe.

Marx and Engels, The British Working Class and the Labour Party

25-12-2003 15:54

Although we, along with our fathers and grandfathers, have paid a high price for the Christian socialism, woolly pacifism, wordy radicalism and Fabian reformism that came into the Labour Party from the capitalist class and dominated its leadership, the real history of the Labour Party and the lessons from it are vital for workers today.
