Ni konflikt, je genocid!

Izrael ni država! Izrael je kolonialna tvorba, ki nasilno zatira in izseljuje staroselce ter naseljuje okupatorje. Imperialistični in kolonialni Zahod, vključno z Evropo, je desetletja gledal stran, preusmerjal pozornost, podpiral kolonizacijo in še danes zanika okupacijo ter se sprenevada z namenom izogibanja lastne odgovornosti.

Odkar obstaja, Izrael izvaja ene najgrozljivejših zločinov proti človeštvu in kršitve človekovih pravic. Uničil je na stotine avtohtonih vasi in mest ter več milijonov Palestincev in Palestink spremenil v begunce in begunke, ki jim preprečuje možnost vrnitve v svoje domove. Izrael še danes rutinsko uničuje palestinske domove, napada skupnosti in vasi. Prisilne izselitve, deložacije in rušenje bivališč palestinskega prebivalstva so stalnica skozi celoten čas obstoja izraelske države. Čeprav to morbidno resničnost spremljamo že vsa leta, ta včasih prestopi meje dojemljivega in od nas zahteva, da ukrepamo, se upremo in izrazimo globalno solidarnost s palestinskim ljudstvom.

Sheikh Jarrah je najnovejši primer tega nasilja. Nekoč premožna soseska v Jeruzalemu, v kateri trenutno biva več kot 30 palestinskih družin, je obremenjena z grožnjo nasilne izselitve štirih družin iz njihovih domov s strani kolonialne oblasti.

Izraelski represivni aparat je bil zgrajen skozi številne poboje in prekomerno uporabo sile. Tudi v zadnjih tednih skuša zatreti prebivalce, ki se upirajo brutalnemu izseljevanju svojih sosedov. Da izraelski represivni aparat uporablja prave naboje nad civilnim prebivalstvom, čeprav ti ne predstavljajo direktne grožnje, ni novost. To je standardna praksa, da bi v ljudeh vzbujali strah, vzpostavili svoje gospostvo in jih ponižali ter izgnali.

Sheikh Jarrah v zgoščeni obliki ponazarja grozo naseljenskega kolonializma. Po brutalnem napadu na prebivalce in protestnike, ki so se uprli nasilnim deložacijam, je težko oborožena izraelska vojska vdrla v mošejo Al Aqsa, v kateri so bili za molitev ob Ramadanu zbrani verniki. Brutalni oboroženi napad z gumijastimi naboji, vodnimi topi in drugimi represivnimi sredstvi, je rezultiral v več kot 300 poškodovanih Palestinkah in Palestincih. Nasilje se s tem ni končalo. Nekaj ur za tem, po vojaškem odgovoru s strani sil palestinskega odpora v Gazi, je izraelska vojska nad področjem, ki je znano kot največji zapor na svetu, izvedel na stotine bombnih napadov, v katerih je bilo zgolj v nekaj urah umorjenih 20 Palestink in Palestincev, med njimi tudi 9 otrok.

Čas je, da izkažemo solidarnost in podporo palestinskemu ljudstvu, ki se že desetletja in tudi zadnje tedne, bori proti okupatorju, ki nad njim izvaja vsesplošno nasilje.

Ni ‘spopada’ med Izraelom in Palestino, gre za vojno zatiralskega naseljenskega kolonialnega režima proti ljudem in za upravičen odpor ljudi zoper njega.

Zahtevamo, da s krivdo obremenjena in islamofobna Evropa ter preostali Zahod preneha s prikazovanjem dogajanja v Palestini kot da gre za verski konflikt med Judi in muslimani. Zahtevamo, da prepozna, da je bistvo dogajanja v Palestini sistematična politika apartheida nad palestinskim prebivalstvom, ki ga poleg muslimanov sestavljajo tudi kristjani in tisti, ki se ne identificirajo kot verniki nobene religije. Z vsiljevanjem perspektive, ki je vezana na vero, Zahod mobilizira islamofobijo z namenom zmanjšanja teže vsakodnevnih zločinov v Palestini ter Palestinkam in Palestincem zanika pravico do svobode in do življenja samega.

Zahtevamo konec nasilnih izselitev ter pregonov Palestink in Palestincev ter rušenja njihovih domov.

Zahtevamo konec pobijanja in uporabe nasilja nad vsemi, ki želijo uveljavljati svojo neizpodbitno pravico do življenja v svobodni Palestini.

Zahtevamo svobodo gibanja za Palestinke in Palestince, ki živijo v največjem zaporu na prostem z več kot 600 nadzornimi točkami in cestnimi zaporami, ki jim omejujejo gibanje ter dostop do dela, izobraževanja in zdravstvenih storitev, kar je v času globalne epidemije imelo še dodatne pogubne posledice.

Zahtevamo konec samovoljnih aretacij palestinskih civilistov, tudi in predvsem otrok, s strani izraelskega represivnega aparata. Z zapiranjem otrok, mladostnikov in drugih v izraelske zapore Izrael krši mednarodno pravo, ki prepoveduje premeščanje pripornikov na ozemlje okupatorja. Zahtevamo konec mučenja in zatiranja palestinskih civilistov in otrok v izraelskih zaporih.

In nenazadnje, zahtevamo takojšnjo mednarodno solidarnost in ukrepanje proti vsem oblikam okupacije in kolonizacije na področju Palestine!

No a conflict, its a genocide!

 Israel is not a country! Israel is a settler colony that has been violently replacing the indigenous people with settlers. It is the modern and sadly the most perfect example of settler colonialism. The imperial and colonial west, including Europe have long turned away from acknowledging this 'settler colonialism' and turning the narratives around it in order to prevent their own guilt trips and avoiding questions about their own existence without justice and reparations to the colonised.

Since its coming into existence (not so long ago) Israel has committed some of the most horrendous crimes against humanity and human right violations while trying to destroy more than 500 native villages and towns causing displacement of more than 7 million Palestinian refugees and above all denying them the legal right to return. Israel routinely demolishes Palestinian homes and entire communities and sometimes even villages. Forcible transfers, forced evictions and demolitions are sadly a continuous process since the very beginning of this settler colony.  Even though this morbid reality haunts us most of the time, every once in a while it exaggerates limits beyond comprehension and demands to stir up some action to show resistance and global solidarity.

Sheikh Jarrah was such a recent incident. An affluent neighbourhood of Jerusalem where more than thirty Palestinian families currently reside witnessed forced evictions of four families from their homes by the Israeli settler organisations.

Already known for their unlawful killings and excessive use of force the Israeli forces showed up with violent crackdown on residents resisting evictions. It is nothing new to anyone how the Israeli forces routinely use live ammunition on protestors even though they do not pose any imminent threat. There have been incidents in the past where these forces have used civilians as target practice and shoot at farmers and fishermen just to assert fear, domination and for mere humiliation.

Sadly, Sheikh Jarrah exemplifies the horror of how this settler colonialism is functioning. Following the brutal crackdown on residents and protestors resisting eviction the heavily armed Israeli forces flash raided the Al Aqsa mosque where the peaceful worshippers had gathered for the call to prayer in the holy month of Ramadan. The brutal armed raid with stun grenades, rubber bullets and water canons ended up with more than 300 Palestinians injured. However, sadly this did not stop there. Hours later, following escalations from Hamas, Israel carried out dozens of airstrikes on the region killing 20 Palestinians civilians including 9 children!

It is time to show solidarity for Palestinians who have been protesting for decades but especially in the recent weeks against the efforts to forcefully evict Palestinian families in the Israeli court system from Sheikh Jarrah and the brutal crackdown of the Israeli forces on the residents and the protestors.

-We call for movements to change the narratives around ‘FIGHTS” between Israel and Palestine and demand the western media depict it as it i.e an oppressive settler colonialism.

-We call for the ailing guilt ridden and Islamophobic Europe (and the west) to stop portraying it as a religious conflict between Jews and Muslims and reveal the apartheid and discrimination faced by the Palestinian jews, Palestinian christians and not just the Palestinian muslims in the occupied  parts of Palestine. Reducing it to religious conflict and twisting the narratives around that denies the Palestinian people  their right to liberation, freedom and justice.

-We demand to end all forcible evictions, forced transfers and demolition of Palestinian residents and houses.

-We demand immediate halt to killings and excessive use of forces on protestors.

-We call for freedom of movement of the Palestinians that are living in the biggest open air prison of the world with almost 600 checkpoints and roadblocks that restrict movement not only for work and education but also for medical needs that has been worsened in the times of this global pandemic.

-We call to end all arbitrary detention of Palestinian civilians (especially children!) by the Israeli forces (that conduct raids at people’s homes mostly at nights!) and taking them to Israeli prisons violating the international law that prohibits the movements of detainees into the territory of the occupying force. We call to end all torture and ill treatment of the Palestinian civilians and children in these detentions.

-Last, but not the least! We demand immediate international solidarity and action against all forms of occupation and colonisation of the Israel in the Palestinian territory!
