حل التنظيم الذاتي

معظمُ المسيرات التي حصلت في فلسطين خلال العامين الماضيين، كانت في مُجملها مسيراتٍ و تحركاتٍ تحمل بطبيعتها سمةً “رد الفعل” العشوائية. قد تكون هذه التحركات منظمةً في إطار ضيق، و لكنها لا تتخطى رد الفعل المحدود بزمان محددٍ يبدأ و ينتهي بانتهاء السبب.

البداية كانت متمثلةً بالتظاهر دعما لمصر و تونس و مروراً بإضرابات الأسرى و انتهاءً بزيارة “موفاز” و “مخطط برافر”. و مع أن إضراب الأسرى استمر لفترة من الزمن، إلا أن التظاهر لدعم الأسرى قلَ لدرجة أن آخرَ مسيرةِ خرجت لدعم الأسرى دُعيَّ إليها، قليل من الناس شارك بها.

إن طبيعةَ العملِ الثوري الفلسطيني منذُ ثورةِ البُراق و ثورة عام 1936 و مروراً بالانتفاضتين الأولى و الثانية كان كلهُ أفعالٌ جاءت كردِ فعل لأحداثٍ معينةٍ حدثت على أرض الواقع. إلا أن هذه الثورات لم تحمل بداخلها طبيعة تنظيمية ذات “ايديلولوجية” محددة قادرةٍ على تحريك الجماهير. “ومع هذا فإنه جدير بالذكر أن بعض التحركات مثل ثورة الشيخ عز الدين القسام” كانت من الثورات الوحيدة في فلسطين التي تم التحضير و التعبئة لها بشكل سري. ولكن للأسف،أدى تُحرك غير محسوبٍ من أحد الثوار المتحمسين إلى

كشف الثورة وهي في تحضيراتها النهائية.

 وبالعودة إلى واقعنا الحالي، نجد أنه و منذ بداية ما يسمى “بالحراك الشبابي” في فلسطين بتحركٍ سُميَّ في حينه “15 آذار” -الذي طالب بإنهاء الانقسام- فشل الناشطون الشباب في فلسطين بحشد جماهير الشعب الفلسطيني من خلفهم و عليه فشلوا بإيصال الرسالة المنشودة.

لقد حاول منتمو هذا الحراك التظاهر و الاعتصام و الاشتباك مع قوات الاحتلال على مشارف معسكر “عوفر”. وحاولوا الوصول إلى مستوطنة “بيت ايل”، إلا أنهم فشلوا في كثير من هذه المحاولات التي تخللها فقط قليل من المحاولات الناجحة. إلا أن فشلهم الأكبر يتمحور حول فشلهم في إيصال رسالتهم إلى الشعب نفسه.

“يسقط عسكر دايتون” … “تسقط سلطة اوسلو (سلطة فتح و حماس)” … “أبناء الشعب الفلسطيني في الأراضي المحتلة عام 1948 يجب أن يقاطع الحكومة الإسرائيلية”. … “راحت سلطة أوسلو، طيب و بعدين”؟. وماذا لو قاطع “فلسطينيو ال48” الحكومة الإسرائيلية؟، كيف سيغدو وضع الصحة و التعليم و المواصلات… الخ. من سيعمل على تنظيم هذه القطاعات كلها؟.
الإسرائيليون ملزمون بتحمل مسؤولياتهم كقوة مستعمرة، لكن هل المُستَعمَرْ مُستعدٌ لأن يضع ثقتهُ بنظام تعليمي أو صحيٍ تابعٍ للمُستَعمِرْ؟. الشعارات جميلة و رنانة، لكن لا يوجد تحركٌ حقيقي ليترجم هذه الشعارات إلى واقعٍ حقيقيٍ ينظر إليه.

إن أفضل طريقة للقضاء على النظام المُستعمرْ أو الدكتاتوري –أياً كان- هي عن طريق عدم اعتماد الشعب على هذا النظام. بهذه الطريقة يصبح نظام الحكم الاستعماري نظاماً هامشي لا قيمة له وعليه يصبح الشعب قادراً على التخلي عنه.
إذا أردنا من فلسطيني ال 48 أن يقاطعوا نظام الحكومة الإسرائيلية و خدماتها فعلينا –على سبيل المثال لا الحصر- دعم المجتمعات المحلية لتنظيم انفسهم بطريقة تسمح لهم ببناء عيادات صحية مجانية توفر علاجاً عالي المستوى. وليس لهذه العيادات أن تقدم خدماتها للعرب الفلسطينيين فقط و إنما للمهاجرين الأفارقة أيضاً وإلى كل إنسان يحتاج إلى العلاج.

وأيضا على كل مجتمع أن يبني مدرسةً لخدمة أبناءه والآخرين. بعد مدة زمنية بسيطة من إتمام مثل هذه الإجراءات بشكل واسع سيتهاوى النظام على نفسه وينهار بالكامل.

وينطبق الحل نفسه على مواطني غزة و الضفة و مخيمات اللاجئين و مصر و سوريا و لبنان و الأردن و كل العالم. إن هذه المهمة لن تكون سهلة وبسيطة، فعندما يدرك النظام القائم خطورة هذه الأفعال سيوظف كل جهده للقضاء على أي تحرك يتسم بمثل هذا الفكر.

أفضل مثال هنا هو الفهود السود في أمريكا. مع أنهم كانوا يحملون السلاح، إلا أن مسئولي الشرطة الفيدرالية رأوا أن أكبر خطر على الحكومة الأمريكية هو برنامج الإفطار الصباحي لطلاب المدارس و مشاريع العيادات الصحية المزودة من قبل الحزب. و في المكسيك أيضاً -في وقتنا الحالي- تعتبر العيادات الصحية المدارة من قبل الحكومات المحلية التابعة للحركة “الزاباتية” أفضل بكثير من العيادات الصحية التابعة لحكومة المكسيك في “شياباس” في جنوب المكسيك. كما أنها مجانية!.
مثال أخر من حركة “الماويين” في الهند، حيث يقوم الثوار المسلحون بدعم المجتمعات القبلية المحلية لممارسة شكل رائع من الديمقراطية المباشرة التي ينتج منها خدمات للمجتمع من المجتمع نفسه تضاهي تلك الخدمات المزودة من الدولة.

إذا سألت أي من الثوريين في حركة الفهود السود في أمريكا، أو “الزاباتيستا” في المكسيك، أو “الماويين” في الهند، أو الثوريين الأسبان في “كتلونيا”، أو “بحارة كرونستاد” في روسيا، لاتفقوا جميعا على أن جوهر نجاح العمل الثوري هوة العمل المجتمعي.
وقد تتقارب هذه النظرية مع نظرية الحركات الإسلامية بشكل سطحي. إلا أن أسلوب الأحزاب الإسلامية مثل “الإخوان المسلمون” في كثير من الأحيان تتبع شكل العمل الخيري في عملها المجتمعي. وهذه بعيدُ عن جوهر حديثي. فأنا أتكلم عن دعم الناس للناس، بدون وجود رأس مال أو دعم مالي من أي رأس مال و إن كان يحمل طابع وطني او ديني محدد

في النهاية يجب المجتمع يخدم نفسه بنفسه حتى يصبح حراً. عزيزي القارئ: إذا كنت تشعر بما أشعر وتؤمن بما أؤمن به ، فأنا أدعوك بأن تنظم نفسك مع من يتفق معك أينما كنت. و أبدأ العمل اليوم قبل الغد من أجل أن نخلق عالماً مبنياً على عدالة حقيقية. كل إنسان يعطي قدرَ استطاعته و يأخذ قدر حاجته. عالم يتسع لعوالم مختلفة بأفكار و مبادئ مختلفة.

The colour brown: de-colonising anarchism and challenging white hegemony

Random Shelling قصف عشوائي

A French translation of this article here, thanks for Dyhia Tadmut

The appearance of the Egyptian Black Bloc in Cairo’s streets in January 2013 triggered gullible excitement in Western anarchist circles. Little thought was given to the Egyptian Black Bloc’s political vision – or lack thereof – tactics, or social and economic positions. For most Western anarchists, it was enough that they looked and dressed like anarchists to warrant uncritical admiration. Facebook pages of Israeli anarchists were swamped with pictures of Egyptian Black Bloc activists; skimming through the US anarchist blogosphere during that period would have given one the impression that the Black Bloc was Egypt’s first-ever encounter with anarchism and anti-authoritarianism. But as American writer Joshua Stephens notes, the jubilant reaction many Western anarchists have towards the Black Bloc raises unflattering questions concerning their obsession with form and representation, rather than content and actions. And in this regard…

Palestinian women: Trapped between occupation and patriarchy

Random Shelling قصف عشوائي

Budour Hassan
Arabic, Italian, Spanish

On a warm and bright Sunday morning, three-year-old Saqer was cuddling with his mother when she was shot several times in the head and chest. Dishevelled, tremulous, and smirched with his mother’s blood, Saqer was spotted by a neighbour pleading for help, but was unable to give utterance to what had just befallen his household. Saqer’s mother, Mona Mahajneh, had just been murdered in cold blood in front of his own eyes; the only suspect so far is his maternal uncle, whose detention has been extended in order to allow the investigation of the murder to progress.

Mahajneh, a 30-year-old mother of three from Umm al-Fahm in the Northern Triangle, is the latest martyr of domestic violence against Palestinian women in the Palestinian territories occupied by Zionist militias in 1948 (hereinafter referred to as the Green Line, Israel’s internationally-recognised armistice border). She tried…

The real resistance

On April 30, 2013 the newly freed Palestinian prisoner Salam Asa’ad Za’ghal, 24, attacked an Israeli settler near Za’atra checkpoint in the north of the West Bank. The young man stabbed the settler to death, before Israeli soldiers and the border police arrived at the scene to shoot at him. Salam used the settler’s gun to return fire but eventually was wounded and taken away.

Soon after the attacks, Fatah’s military wing Al-Aqsa Brigades rushed to claim responsibility for the attack, saying this comes as a response to the murder of the prisoners Arafat Jaradat and Mysara Abu Hamdyeh while in Israeli custody. They also claimed that they were granted the green light (from who? Abbas?) to begin a series of attacks to target the occupiers. Yet Fatah’s dismantled military wing claims doesn’t show any indication this act was planned or performed by the group, as facts on the ground prove this statement false. 

“If it was really  planned, God help us.”

The nature of the attack indicate its randomness. Location, timing, weapon, are all elements that point to how desperate and poorly planned the attack was.

First, the attack took place in a heavily guarded junction used by both Palestinians and settlers. Settlers are usually located in two main bus stops, over looked by at least two manned military units. Palestinians are not allowed anywhere near those bus stops. They can pass it, but they are not allowed to wait anywhere near it. If anything Palestinians usually wait for their rides 10 meters away to avoid soldiers or the settlers’ harassment.

Second, the attack took place around 8 in the morning, a busy time of the day where the attacker would be easily spotted and captured by whoever is in the vicinity, whether they are soldiers, or armed settler militia.

Finally, Salam used a knife to stab the settler to death, which is a very simple, accessible, and impractical tool to implement a supposedly “previously planned” revolutionary attack.

If the attack was planned, it was solely by the attacker himself, which fits in with all the actions that targeted Israelis in the West Bank in the last years, specially the stabbing, running over, and shooting incidents– all that can hardly be classified under the term as being “militant acts.”
For example, in 2012 at least 7 to 10 stabbing attempt were reported, although no Israeli was killed, the attempts left few injured and the attackers either dead or detained. In other hand 2011, 5 settlers were killed in an attack on Itemar settlement.

These murders usually flourish when an organized resistance is absent in the oppressed society. They are the undying indication of the abnormality of the situation those people live in, and are strong reminders for both the oppressed and the oppressors of the fact that there is absolutely nothing normal in colonial occupation.

Those attacks are by nature violent, brutal, know no mercy, and will always end with the attacker’s death or arrest, unless they are lucky. They are also hard to prevent by the oppressors, Fatah’s PA and Hamas included. If no one knows what’s on your mind, no one can stop you.

A feature worth noting that dominated all individual attacks in the last year is that they are all done by the marginalized class, those with nothing to lose. Salam as the attackers before him belongs to the wretched of the Palestinian society, those who suffer from both the occupation and class oppression.

Language used to comment on Salam looks although praised him as a freedom fighter, were full of class arrogance. A man commented saying, “Even a man with such a haircut proved to be more honorable than many of us.” If you don’t know, haircuts in Palestine usually indicate a certain class or background, as people tend to associate certain looks to either refugee camps, cities or villages.

Those revolutionary acts although in many people’s opinions are impractical and have if anything a very little influence on the colonial forces, are the pure acts of resistance, untainted with the political interest of the oppressed political elite.

In short, they are the real resistance.

Zionist intellectuals offer a Pizza to Samer Issawi

Israel’s Prime Minister’s wife, Mrs. Netanyahu, became a symbol of insensitivity, a local Marie Antoinette, when she famously offered pizzas to students activists on hunger strike against rising tuition fees. She didn’t express support for their just demands, nor did she show any admiration for their sacrifice or sympathy with their suffering. All she displayed was the light minded selfishness and hedonism of someone who is complete stranger to the notions of a just cause, struggle or sacrifice.

Some of those who claim to be “Israeli intellectuals” have proven today that their arrogance and insensitivity far exceed those of Mrs. Netanyahu.

“Writers and poets, including Eli Amir, Amos Oz and AB. Yehoshua, turned in a personal letter to Samer Al Issawi, on hunger strike for more than 230 days, and called on him to stop the strike.” So we read in today’s (13/04/2013) press.

One Day in Syria, 6 Years Ago

Looking through some old files, few days ago, I found some old ones burned into an old CD’s. In one of those files, I found the pictures I took with my phone during a trip to Syria back in 2007, when I was in my third year in the university.

I had some hard time trying to fix the pictures, because of the low quality, but they were good enough to bring some old memories, I felt like sharing with you.

Colonial Femen Strike Again

Femen is like many Israeli activist, who forgot their role as “solidarity” activist, and started to try to lead the movement against a system of oppression they are part off! 

Over the last few months, Femen decided to “lead” the fight for Arab/Muslim women rights, so they started what they called “Topless Jihad Day“. Femen posted this picture as part of her campaign. Image

It doesn’t need much to notice the Islamophobia, Orientalist messages this picture send, from using a towel to imitate the Islamic head wear, to the beard “I understand she can’t grow a beard”, and the pose that suppose to imitate the Muslim prayers. which makes this picture all in all offensive to many Muslims, women and men. 

Femen, by waging it’s (Operation Women Freedom) to free all Muslim women from the Islamic patriarchy, are no different from many Israeli activists who tried to move from their solidarity positions, to lead the resistance against oppressive system they are part of.
“Same apply on French who went to Algeria to fight against the French colonialism, out of their believes that the oppressed are unable to liberate themselves” 

Femen are not Islamist Jihadist in Afghanistan or Syria, thanks to those who will eagerly try to point this to me. Well, my dear friend, nor radical Islamists are the problem. 

The Jihadist, or the Islamist “if you want”, are the result of colonial and sub-colonial oppression reflected on Muslim nations all over the world either directly, or indirectly through puppet dictatorships. Many of those dictatorship tried to enforce Liberal and more western friendly policies on their people, but those policies were doomed the moment the regimes collapses, as what happen in Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq…etc.
Most of those changes were enforced by the system on the people, the moment the system is gone, people went back to their old ways, because they simply didn’t want those changes, associating it with the former oppressive system.
To create a permanent change in the society, you need the people to change and then enforce those changes on the system, which guarantees even if the system is no more, people will continues. 

Digging in the history of many members of those Jihadies or Islamist you notice that many were part of Socialist progressive movements, who abandoned their ideas, after what they thought the end of socialism by the collapse of the USSR. Many others are simply people who don’t want to change, and for sure, they don’t want changes to be enforced on them

To sum up! 

Femen might be standing for a noble cause, I too stand by, but I hate when a group of people think they are morally superior and in position to judges or enforce their ways on other, whether they were Islamist, Liberal, communist,…… what ever. People must have the right to choose how they want to live, and change the way they desire, even if we don’t like or agree with it. 

Burns the flag you want, strip as much as you want dear European ladies, but when real change take place, it will happen from inside the Arab and Muslim societies, No thanks to you, but rather, despite you.
