ICOR Resolution: Nakba Reminds!
Worldwide Solidarity with the Just Liberation Struggle of the Palestinian People!
FOR decades the State of Israel has terrorized the Palestinian liberation struggle and has intensified that during the last weeks and has killed several dozens of demonstrators at the border to Palestine. With these attacks the State of Israel causes great suffering among the Palestinian population. But they do not allow that to deter themselves from their just struggle. A climax of this was the observation of the Nakba day on 15 May. In 1948 on this day 800,000 Palestinians were deported from their home country to exile, lasting until today.
The ICOR denounces Zionism as the spearhead of US imperialism in the Middle Eastern region and the Zionist crimes against the Palestinian people. Since 1947 the Palestinian people live under the yoke of colonialism, exploited, starved out, deprived of their land, massacred and forced by violence to leave Palestine. The Zionist committed barbarian atrocities and genocides that continue till today. One reason for Israel to act in such an aggressive way is that it wants to weaken the potential of the Palestinian liberation struggle and its impact on other struggles for democracy and freedom, for national and social liberation – in Kurdistan, in Iran. Those in power are on the defensive! The joint anti-imperialist and antifascist struggle in the Middle East/West Asia has special great power. The Palestinian cause remains an inseparable part of the international anti-imperialist and anti-zionist revolutionary movement. (quotations: Closing resolution of the 3rd World Conference; Resolution on Palestine of the 3rd World Conference, November 2017)
Therefore the ICOR calls its presently 51 member organizations and all internationalist forces for solidarity with the Palestinian people:
Long live international solidarity!
Freedom for Palestine!
Explanation: the flight and deportation of Arab Palestinians on the occasion of founding the State of Israel is called Nakba. That is why there is an annual commemoration of Nakba on 15 May.
