(en) FAI, Tierra y Libertad #259 - The Gaza massacre (ca, it) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 5 Jul 2018 09:10:57 +0300

In an increasingly complex and chaotic regional situation, a new wave of events is passing through the Gaza Strip. The Israeli-American decision to move the US embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing this city as the capital of Israel, has catalysed the rage of hundreds of thousands of people forced to live in the largest open-air prison in the world. ---- The Israeli army has dedicated itself to an execrable task of target shooting on anyone who would attempt to assault the border barrier with stones and Molotov cocktails. The Islamo-fascists of Hamas have taken the opportunity to vindicate the fallen and tighten even more the control nuts on the population of the Strip. ---- If the Israeli army stands guard over the compound, the Islamic militias mark their presence in the territory. They have a common goal: to keep everything as it is. Hamas leads the confrontation with Israel without power or want to win, with means that pale before the very powerful terrorist means that the Israeli bourgeoisie has the possibility of deploying. Hamas leads the war against the proletarians and subproletarians of the Gaza Strip to be able to control them, to enrich the caciques and the local bourgeoisie that is lined with the black market and speculation about goods increasingly difficult to import, combined with the Egyptian bourgeoisie and the Israeli itself. It manages the safety valve and does it egregiously:
We are facing the umpteenth demonstration of how the enemy always marches at our head. And so on the Strip as in the West Bank managed by Al-Fatha, and in Israel. The permanent state of war enriches the Israeli bourgeoisie, allows to experiment on the ground weapons and war technology that will later be exported - the last ones are tear gas drones - demobilizes the Israeli workers with the question of nationalism in order to control them better. In Israel, the climate is increasingly repressive and the power of the clerical and ultra-authoritarian sectors is increasing.
Who orders to shoot on the inhabitants of the Strip, will not have problems to do it also on the Israeli proletarians the day that they raise the head. Thousands of Israelis have taken to the streets against the infamous acts committed by the government of Tel Aviv, in the absolute silence of the media, which have preferred to ignore them in complicity.
Whoever launched into Gaza against the border barrier did not do so because he followed Hamas' instructions - which have even escalated the protests - and is probably not very interested in the location of the US embassy. He has done so because of the prospect of living in an open-air prison, with basic needs scarce and watched by the collectors who drain the squalid domestic finances, in a gigantic prison in which the consumption of hard drugs increases, a lucid life and terrifying is a perspective of non-life, of mere survival. The revolt is the revolt of the desperate.
Who frivolizes when considering the defense of borders as legitimization of events, or has personal interests at stake -as he is a criminal- or is steeped in deadly ideology, so he is a cretin who does not realize that before or later it can touch him to find himself in the wrong part of a crosshair.
Given what happened, many accuse Israel of not being a true democracy in that it is based on oppression and exclusion on an ethnic basis. Well, but they forget that all democracies have always acted in this way. Modern democracy is exclusive and is deeply linked to racism, apart from class oppression. Israel is a democratic state that behaves in exactly the same way as other democratic states.
Have we forgotten the shots of the Civil Guard in Ceuta? Or how did the French and British democracies manage colonialism and decolonization? Not to mention immigration within the borders themselves.
Or white and democratic supremacism in the United States? All States act with systematic violence, and democracies do not exactly lag behind: they only build a broader legitimacy and a more sophisticated ideological system around this violence.
The solution to this conflict can only come when the instances of rupture carried out by those who attempt the assault on the walls of the Gaza prison are met with those instances of rupture, which are not very visible but present in Israel: those instances that have led to an increase in the number of desertions and resistance in the military service, and thousands of people to protest in various waves against the policies, both militarist and classist of the Tel Aviv government.
