Victory Of Egyptian Revolution Key To Arab Liberation

Egyptian & Palestinian Flags Side By Side In Tahrir Square

The following post was written by By Hossam el-Hamalawy, an Egyptian journalist in Cairo.  It first appeared on the 3arabawy website on July 20, 2011 under the title “Zionism and the Israeli working class.” (Photo provided by Ikhras)  

Israeli students can protest high prices of housing rent. Israeli doctors can go on strike over work conditions. But not a single sector in the Israeli labor and student movements would voice criticism of what their state is doing to the Palestinians few kilometers away from where they are. The Israeli working class is a hopeless case. It’s totally under the control of Zionism from the inception of the state of the Israel. Forget about a “revolution” in apartheid Israel. Yes, they are engaged in class struggle, but all Israelis are united at the end of the day in their material, economic, political interests versus the Palestinians.

This apartheid state must be dismantled. And the Egyptian working class holds the key to liberation…

    There is NO ONE mainstream  to vote for this coming election…I think the Arab American (a big army!)  voters should look into the equalpartyusa and lets get this country on track in a way that works for the decent people. I’m sorry I just picked the first post to put this recruiting message but I have read the post a few days ago anyway (I love this blog) . With the Arab American /Muslim and just everybody vote we can really go far!
