(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #298 - Jews, Jews or Palestinians: freedom of movement and installation (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 15 Oct 2019 09:59:40 +0300

The right of return of refugees is a fundamental demand for Palestinian and Palestinian people, a people despoiled and denied by the State of Israel. Defending a right of double return, for both Palestinian and Israeli Jews and Jews in their home countries, would defeat both the Zionist project and anti-Semitism. ---- In both the West Bank and Gaza, maps of pre-1948 Palestine are displayed on the walls of entrances or lounges. The interrogative visitor shows where the family comes from: a village near Haifa, Tel Aviv or Galilee. This transgenerational nostalgia bears witness to a very strong trauma within each Palestinian home. The importance of claiming the right to return to the Palestinian population is then measured.
This demand for the right to return, we must carry it high and strong but not only for the Palestinian. Even in Israel, there are Jews and Jews who have difficulty adapting to the life of this country. Many Yemenis, Iraqis and Algerians, but also from Western countries, are nostalgic for their former countries, where their families have lived for hundreds of years with local customs and practices much closer to their homeland. The origins of Zionist leaders in Israel are aggressive capitalism coupled with a state of permanent war. Some Israeli Jewish people who have been able to maintain dual nationality leave Israel to resettle in their country of origin to the point where current migratory flows have reversed.

However, many countries are forbidden, as is the case of a majority of Arab countries, Turkey or Iran, where feudal governments maintain or even organize anti-Semitism. This is also the case of European countries in which reactionary governments do not guarantee security for a right to return serenely.

The libertarian movement as well as the support movements to Palestine should bring this claim of double return loud and clear. It is an important element for a treatment of equality between Jewish and Palestinian populations. Our ethics make us supporters of freedom of movement and installation for every human being. It would also be a strong signal that anti-Semitism is being taken into account by Jewish diaspora communities, who often remain critical of Palestinian support movements.

Finally this claim counteracts both the Zionist project that seeks to impose Israel as the sole refuge of Jews and Jews that authoritarian regimes that still make anti-Semitism a trade.
