From Italy to Israel/Palestine: Activists share insights on popular struggle 
Riccardo Carraro, +972 Magazine 10/13/2013
Since 1994, activists in the Italy’s Susa Valley have been engaged in a popular struggle against government plans to build a 57 kilometer high-speed railway. On a trip to the West Bank, the Susa Valley activists came to better understand life under Israeli occupation, and came away with new insights for their own struggle back home.
When we use the term “popular struggle” we usually mean it in the context of collective, grassroots participation in a fight that is inclusive of several sectors of society, without distinction based on gender, age, culture, etc. And although each popular struggle has its own specificities and characteristics, there are common elements shared by all popular struggles: rejection of a strict division of labor, determination to participate, to take back one’s life, as well as one’s personal and communal destiny.
All popular struggles have in common the capacity to choose, claim dignity, and react to violence, repression, and abuse of power. A struggle becomes “popular” when it is not implemented solely by leaders but by common people. A struggle is popular when both the elderly and young can participate, each one through their own contribution.
In a popular struggle, the process of “activation” is as important as the results you achieve, it is precisely through that process that one obtains the greatest outcomes.
I recently returned from a journey to Israel/Palestine with a delegation of Italian activists from the Susa Valley. During our trip we visited various local groups engaged in popular struggle, including in Nabi Saleh, Al-Araqib, Bil’in, South Hebron Hills and Jaffa.
Since 1994, the Susa Valley has been the site of NO TAV, a popular struggle against the construction of a high-speed railway in the valley….more.. e-mail

Court denial of Israeli nationality reinforces discrimination 
Ben White, Middle East Monitor (MEMO) 10/7/2013
Last week, in response to a long-running legal challenge, Israel’s Supreme Court ruled in favour of the status quo whereby the country’s population registry does not allow “Israeli” as a permitted nationality. What at first glance appears confusing sheds light on a little known aspect of Israel’s discriminatory ethnocracy.
In denying the existence of an Israeli nationality distinct from a Jewish one, court President Asher Grunis and Justices Uzi Vogelman and Hanan Melcer upheld a 2008 Jerusalem District Court verdict, and also echoed the outcome of a similar case brought before the Supreme Court in the 1970s.
Israeli ID cards and population registry feature an ‘ethnicity’ category, or ‘nationhood’/nationality (Hebrew: le’om), with the most common being ‘Jewish’ and ‘Arab’ (for Palestinian citizens of Israel). The defeated petitioners sought the right to replace ‘Jewish’ with ‘Israeli’, a campaign led for decades by Prof. Uzzi Ornan.
The Supreme Court’s ruling, excerpts of which have been translated for MEMO by Ofer Neiman (see here), is essential reading for those looking to understand the ways in which Israel seeks to maintain itself ostensibly as both a “Jewish and democratic” state.
Summarising the grounds on which the case had already been rejected, Judge Uzi Vogelman cited the Jerusalem District Court’s conclusion that “a ruling on the existence of an Israeli nationality would have far reaching and crucial implications for the identity of the state, its character and its future”.
Judge Meltzer, meanwhile, took the time while expounding his own opinion to lay out “three central elements” in which “the recognition of the legitimacy of Israel’s existence as a Jewish state is grounded”, citing the UN General Assembly resolution in 1947 on partition…. more.. e-mail

Musical road for ‘Autostrad’ is bumpy 
Daoud Kuttab, Arabic Media Internet Network (AMIN) 10/9/2013
This week, a Jordanian band went on a tour that included the Golan Heights, Nazareth, Haifa, Ramallah, Bethlehem and Jerusalem. But the popular music group which is rated as one of the top five in the region faced a concerted social media and online attack as having participated in a politically unacceptable act.
The attack focused on the fact that the band members received visas from the Israeli embassy in Amman. They are accused of normalising with the Israelis. Entry into Jerusalem, the Golan Heights, Nazareth or Haifa is not possible without a visa. The permits issues by the Palestinian Authority in coordination with and after the approval of the Israelis are valid only in West Bank cities like Bethlehem and Ramallah.
The band, Autostrad, identifies itself as “an Ammani world, reggae, funk band from Jordan”. Fronted by lead singer Yazan Alrousan, Autostrad was formed in 2007 with guitarist Hamza Arnaout, keyboardist Wisam Qatawneh, bassist Avo Demerjian, saxophonist Bashar Abdelghani and drummer Burhan Ali.
The online and social media campaign was launched by a number of young Jordanians and Palestinians, including some who are citizens of Israel.
In an article published on a number of progressive sites, the writer says the band is welcome to Palestine only after it is liberated. A hashtag with “come after it is liberated” also went viral as attacks against the music group mushroomed.
Efforts to boycott Israel are generally focused on international academics wanting to visit Israeli towns, not Palestinian locals inside Israel.
The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel says that it has developed guidelines on this issue in consultation with Palestinian civil society organisations since 2007. more.. e-mail

Invisible Strife in a Moribund Middle East 
Fadi Elhusseini, Arabic Media Internet Network (AMIN) 10/10/2013
In a fractious, rife-with-conflicts Middle East, nothing is spared; worship houses are attacked; sport clubs, schools and markets become unsafe with continued upticks in violence. Now, attention is focused on the Syrian dilemma, which has been colored in a sectarian hue: Sunni- Shiite/Alawi conflict. Nevertheless, another invisible fray is taking place in that region, but it is so very dim that one might barely be aware of it.
Though the dust of the coup in Egypt has not yet settled, a piqued US administration expressed its resentment, mostly because it was not expecting it. It had already sought to foster closer ties and forge relations, either knowing or hoping that the new “moderate” Islamists in power would deliver what their predecessors did not. Yet, with Egypt’s June 30 coup, or what many call “the Second Revolution,” regardless of our assessment of whether it was or was not serving Egypt’s national interests, serious repercussions followed and a big surprise resonated on the other side of the Red Sea.
Saudi Arabia’s position came as a surprise, not only opposing the US, but rather supporting and funding Egypt’s new rule. How did this happen? This firm and clear position comes despite the two countries’ alliance and after decades of absolute harmonious positions on regional issues. Libya under former Libyan President Muammar Gaddafi, Iraq under former President Saddam Hussein, Iran and Syria are just a few examples. Since the oil crisis in the seventies of the last century, Saudi official positions seemed calm in dealing with regional crises and its national and regional interests have been to a large extent in line with US positions.
There has not been any change in the structure of Saudi decision-making to make us think that the reason for this particular change is of a strategic nature. The Saudi political line has remained consistent and in accordance with previously adopted positions on regional issues (i.e. Saudi Arabia’s stance toward the US decision to attack Syria went along with the US position). Therefore, there must be a strong reason, one that is powerful and made Saudi Arabia not only defy the US, but also provide full support to the new government in Egypt. more.. e-mail
