It’s not a new Intifada but the same struggle against Israeli pogroms of extermination

Where is that speculation coming from asking if a new Intifada is beginning among Palestinians? It suggests the violence is initiated by Palestinians & Israel is responding–an idea that plays right into the hands of Israeli propaganda.

If Intifada means self-defense against Israeli violence & resistance against oppression & colonialism, then Intifada began for Palestinians in 1948 & has never ended. When the term is used to connote increased & spontaneous aggression & violence among Palestinians against Israel, that is an adroit manipulation.

Palestinians have a right to defend themselves by any means necessary & their struggle demands the fullest solidarity from men & women of good will all around the world. Long live Intifada!
