Con la conta dei martiri in Palestina che supera le 1800 persone non posso che pubblicare questo vecchio manifesto. Per ricordare che non è possibile scindere il popolo palestinese dalla sua Resistenza.
Allego anche due articoli: uno di Haidar Eid, professore all’università Al-Aqsa di Gaza, ed un altro, in corso di traduzione, di Louay Odeh, ex prigioniero politico rilasciato nel 2012 a seguito dello scambio con il soldato occupante Gilad Shalit e confinato nella Striscia.
The rape of Gaza
Gaza has turned from the world’s biggest concentration camp to the world’s biggest graveyard.
“A terrorist, like those who kidnapped the boys and killed them, the only thing that will deter them, is if they know that either their sister or mother will be raped if they are caught,” said Middle East scholar Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University
How can one describe the ongoing massacre in Gaza with language that has long been proven to be slippery?
Where is one to start and finish if one wants a semiological analysis of the dramatic footage of children bleeding to death despite Israel’s attempts to convince us that these children were not the targets, but the militants were?
If there were any questions to be asked, they would be about the nature of a hegemonic modern ideology that dehumanises toddlers and drives soldiers to shoot women, shell hospitals and schools used as shelters for those who have become homeless. It is definitely not the right time for such grandiose philosophical questions. But what is the Palestinian to do when she or he lives such a crude political reality?

It is not only related to the political affiliation, but resistance has become an integral part of geographic identity. It is difficult to find someone in Gaza who is opposing resistance, regardless of her/his political affliction. This is neither resulted from a united political program or adopting one strategy that unites everybody. It is the outcome of a general awareness our people in Gaza acquired by experience.
