The violent price of Zionist elections: Bring the police murderers to justice! Give the Bedouins their lands back!

By: Yossi Schwarz

20.1.2015

The elections to the Zionist parliament, the Knesset, are coming soon. These elections are scheduled way ahead of time because of the crisis faced by the Netanyahu government. This crisis developed as a result of its political failure to win the last war against Hamas this summer (i.e. operation “Protective Edge”). This war proved that the fossilized thought of Israeli governments could only result in the killing of Palestinian civilians, destruction of infrastructure, but also in the death of Israeli soldiers. The general atmosphere of these elections is created by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris which intensified the already existing Islamophobia. Continue reading

France after the Attacks in Paris: Defend the Muslim People against Imperialist Wars, Chauvinist Hatemongering, and State Repression

Statement of the Revolutionary Communist International Tendency (RCIT), 9.1.2014, www.thecommunists.net

Hello everyone, my name is Rotem Elisha, I am a high school student from Ramla – Israel. At the beginning of 2014 I initiated a struggle by opening a Facebook page titled “No More Silence – Fight for Freedom and Equality”. The idea for this came up as I was confronted with the discriminatory rule in my school which prohibits female but not male students from wearing short pants and skirts. The excuse that was given to me by the school management was that school girls should dress in a “decent” manner. If girls should be allowed to show off their legs at school, they further explained, it might prevent boys from concentrating fully on studying and cause sexual harassment. Continue reading

Israel, Hands Off Al-Aqsa!

Down with the Israeli Apartheid State!
