Mr. Mahmoud Abbas
President of the Palestinian National Authority
Ramallah, Palestine
 
Dear President Abbas,
 
In view of the intense pressure being brought to bear on the Palestinian National Authority by Israel and the U.S. Administration to negotiate a final agreement which will claim to settle all past and present rights and demands of the Palestinian people,
and considering the present interruption in negotiations brought about by Israel’s customary practice of reneging on its commitments, we Palestinian and other Arab scholars and professionals with longstanding commitments to the Palestinian cause send you the following message:
 
1.  We urge you to stand firm for the national rights of all Palestinians, and to declare that no individual or group of individuals has the unconditional authority to reach a final agreement on behalf of the Palestinian people.  Only the Palestinian people, in their global multitude, have the right to…

On 24 March The Human Rights Council held a general debate on the human rights situation in Palestine and other Occupied Arab Territories, in a meeting at which four reports on the human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories were presented.

The Secretary-General’s report again confirmed continued flagrant violations of international humanitarian law and international human rights law.

Navi Pillay, United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights said that the reports highlighted the issue of settlements, which, together with settler violence, were at the core of many of the human rights violations in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

Despite repeated calls on Israel to cease settlement activity, their construction continued with devastating consequences for Palestinian civilians. Ms. Pillay also expressed deep concern at the situation in Gaza.

Convergence des luttes : antifascisme et antisionisme


Originalmente publicado en quartierslibres:

La manifestation antifasciste du 9 février dernier (commémoration des manifestations antifascistes de 1934) donne lieu à des débats tournant autour de la participation au cortège de manifestants ayant soutenu la cause palestinienne derrière une banderole « Contre le fascisme et le sionisme ». Plusieurs messages ou commentaires ont ainsi été envoyés sur des réseaux sociaux, blogs ou sites d’informations militants, qui critiquent ce soutien des militants antisionistes au combat antifasciste.

Le principal reproche qui circule vise le fait que les mots « sionisme » et « fascisme » figuraient sur une banderole. Ce lien n’est pourtant guère surprenant de la part de militants qui soutiennent la cause palestinienne lorsqu’ils se trouvent participer à une marche antifasciste.

Le slogan « Contre le fascisme et le sionisme » peut poser question, bien sûr, mais il s’agit d’une question qu’il faut entendre et non condamner a priori : comment et pourquoi, dans la…
