Enjoy!!

T.: "I am researching materials from Matspen to try and get them into digital
format and out for greater circulation on the Internet."

> Two of these were written by M., and published in ISRACA; and the
> third by a Matzpen sympathizer, using a pen-name, and published in
> Khamsin.
>
> ISRACA (Israeli Socialist Revolutionary Action Committee Abroad) was
> an info journal published by Matzpen members and supporters living
> outside Israel. It was later superseded by Khamsin, a journal
> published (first in French, then -- beginning from issue # 5 -- in
> English, by a coalition of socialists from various Middle-East
> countries, including Israel. Most of the Israeli participants in and
> contributors to Khamsin were Matzpen members or supporters; of these
> some were Israeli Jews and some Israeli Palestinians.
>
> There are two English-language sources in print that you can scan
> (preferably using OCR) and convert to digital format.
>
> 1. The Other Israel, edited by Arie Bober, published in 1972 by
> Doubleday (Anchor series). This is an anthology of official Matzpen
> documents (ie position statements issued by Matzpen as a group) as
> well as articles written by individual Matzpen members. This book is
> long our of print, and you will have to find it in some library.
>
> 2. Issues 5 - 14 of Khamsin. Most of the Israeli
> contributors were Matzpen members or supporters. It may be difficult
> for you to obtain these issues, unless you have access to and
> exceptionally good library. But there exists an anthology of some of
> the best material from Khamsin. It is called Forbidden Agendas, and
> was published in 1984 by Al Saqi (26 Westbourne Grove, London W2, UK).
> Wouldn't be surprised if they still have a few copies in stock. Of
> course, a copy can also be found in a good library. If you want to use
> some articles fromn this collection.
