Israel is waging a brutal war against the Palestinian people. Israel is a racist Jewish-only settler state established on the ruins of Palestinian towns. The US supports Israel with over $14 billion in military aid every year, because Israel is the "aircraft carrier" for US imperialist military power in the strategic, oil-rich Middle East. Israel has forced the Palestinians into economically unsustainable refugee camps and ghettoes, where they are subject to daily atrocities by the occupying Israeli armed forces including executions and imprisonments. Palestinian forces captured Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier, and are demanding an exchange for the women and children prisoners held by Israel, who number in the thousands and are tortured and denied basic human rights. In retaliation, Israel has invaded the Palestinian Gaza Strip, destroying infrastructure including the power plant and water supply, causing a humanitarian catastrophe, and amounting to an international crime against humanity. Israel has also kidnapped Palestinian legislators and government officials, a crime against the Palestinian people's fundamental right to self-determination. The United States, Israel's international patron, is directly responsible for these crimes. Israel's ongoing criminal war of occupation against Palestine shows that no "peace process" with the Zionist state is possible: only a socialist revolution in Palestine/Israel can create a united Palestinian state where Jews and Arabs can live together in peace.

Waging War from Gaza
05 Jul 2006
What is so remarkable about the current wave of violence in Gaza is that the event at the origin of the “cycle” is not at all historical, but very contemporary. The event is not buried in the mists of history. It occurred less than one year ago. Before the eyes of the whole world, Israel left Gaza. Every Jew, every soldier, every military installation, every remnant of Israeli occupation was uprooted and taken away.

How do the Palestinians respond? What have they done with Gaza, the first Palestinian territory in history to be independent, something neither the Ottomans nor the British nor the Egyptians nor the Jordanians, all of whom ruled Palestinians before the Israelis, ever permitted? On the very day of Israel’s final pullout, the Palestinians began firing rockets out of Gaza into Israeli towns on the other side of the border. And remember: those are attacks not on settlers but on civilians in Israel proper, the pre-1967 Israel that the international community recognizes as legitimately part of sovereign Israel, a member state of the U.N. A thousand rockets have fallen since.

For what possible reason? Before the withdrawal, attacks across the border could have been rationalized with the usual Palestinian mantra of occupation, settlements and so on. But what can one say after the withdrawal?

The logic for those continued attacks is to be found in the so-called phase plan adopted in 1974 by the Palestine National Council in Cairo. Realizing that they would never be able to destroy Israel in one fell swoop, the Palestinians adopted a graduated plan to wipe out Israel. First, accept any territory given to them in any part of historic Palestine. Then, use that sanctuary to wage war until Israel is destroyed.

So in 2005 the Palestinians are given Gaza, free of any Jews. Do they begin building the state they say they want, constructing schools and roads and hospitals? No. They launch rockets at civilians and dig a 300-yard tunnel under the border to attack Israeli soldiers and bring back a hostage.

And this time the terrorism is carried out not by some shadowy group that the Palestinian leader can disavow, however disingenuously. This is Hamas in action—the group that was recently elected to lead the Palestinians. At least there is now truth in advertising: a Palestinian government openly committed to terrorism and to the destruction of a member state of the U.N. openly uses terrorism to carry on its war.
US/Israel out of Palestine!
