Jewish Israeli anarchists call to abolish Zionism

During the protest against the annexation of the

West Bank,at Rabbin Square Tel Aviv,

An anarchist block

chose to march under far more radical slogan that might

seem too extreme for some people.

The group “Anarchists against the Wall”

activists held a banner that read:abolish

Zionism – Nakba since 1948.

The group also held other banners that read: Rotzhim Bemadim – Killers in uniforms.

I must say that when these activist call to abolish Zionism

what they actually mean

is that they want to abolish the Jewish privilege in Israel

and make all Israeli people equal citizens,

A true democracy

other than the ethnocracy Israel is now

. The call to abolish Zionism coming from these activist

is a call for what they perceive as social justice

– mainly

A demand for equality.

I am aware that

under different contexts the call to abolish Zionism might sound as

a call for violence, especially when coming from the Iranian regime.

But this is not the case here:

many of the founders of these groups served in the Israeli army

or have relatives who are Israeli soldiers.

They really mean the regime and not killing Israelis.

And no, they are not anti semitic either.

Believe it or not,

These people are passionate patriots

who make their best of efforts to be

The most dedicated and committed citizens.

They are not violent people, very far from it.

They are protesting against what they perceive as

violent actions of our own government and they are saying :

Not in our names.

They reject the brutality of their own government.

They are asking for justice

. An end to the violence of the Israeli occupation.

And this is their right to express their feeling

s about what their (our) government is doing.

Maybe their style is proactive and alienating.

Maybe there is a better way of saying

we do not want to occupy other people

. But people who live safely abroad can’t understand

how torn up from inside we are

, these people are.

Their words are heartfelt.

Maybe there are better words to describe the feelings.

The main point of this is to protest.

Maybe not my own style or my own words

. But I respect their right for just anger.
