      ISRAEL FEARS BEING EXPOSED



      Israel is not like a powerful central dictatorship that does not care
      what anyone else thinks. Israel is like the British rule of India,
      Apartheid South Africa, and America during the days of segregation.
      It has to convince its supporters it is a democracy, even though it
      clearly is not. Israel is horrified that its supporters one day will
      see through the lie it is based on.



      Israel is not afraid of terrorism. Israel widely publicizes terrorist
      acts against it. Americans and Jews are taught that Israel is a
      democracy that is waging a war against bloodthirsty terrorists.



      Israel is scared of Americans and Jews realizing that it is really a
      tyrannical country. It is photos of Israeli soldiers beating up
      people in peaceful protests that are horrifying to Israel and its
      supporters.



      That is why Israel's supporters panicked when pictures appeared in
      the American media of Israeli soldiers strong-arming peaceful
      Palestinian protestors during the first Intifada but have barely
      noticed the Palestinian bystanders that have been murdered in
      Israel's assassinations. That is why the Israeli politicians cried in
      public when Baruch Goldstein massacred people in a mosque but merely
      said it was slightly `unwise' to blow up an entire city block with
      children on it that also had one member of Hamas. And that is also
      why Ariel Sharon is now ethnically cleansing West Bank Palestinians
      more blatantly than Israel was already doing before.





      ISRAEL FEARS GIVING PALESTINIANS THE RIGHT TO VOTE



      Israel doesn't fear squabbling over land either. It has the weapons
      and the power to do it. It fears giving Palestinians the right to
      vote in a single unified democracy. When Israel's supporters are
      asked about this, they try to get around it by talking about
      population statistics, birthrates, and complexities because they
      cannot answer it.





      PALESTINIANS MUST EXPOSE ISRAELI APARTHEID AND DEMAND THE RIGHT TO
      VOTE



      Palestinians can break the chains that bind them. They should use
      massive civil disobedience to expose the brutality of the Israeli
      apartheid state and to make the demand for democracy.



      Israel can thwart demonstrations by provoking Palestinian
      demonstrators into physically resisting back. But Palestinian
      demonstrations will be unstoppable if the demonstrators do not
      physically resist at all even if attacked. Israel cannot attack
      perfectly peaceful demonstrators without showing the rest of the
      world how truly undemocratic it really is. That is what Israel is
      really horrified of. This is the crucial aspect of nonviolent
      resistance. And this is what will totally overwhelm Israel and its
      supporters.



      The Palestinians should also base their resistance on a crystal clear
      goal. They should seek the right to vote in a single unified
      democracy. And they should not stop this movement until they get it,
      even if it requires major worldwide hunger strikes. This will give
      their protests the direction they need in order to succeed. And this
      is the key issue that they need in order to actually overcome Israeli
      Apartheid.





      HOW NONVIOLENT RESISTANCE WORKS



      Nonviolent resistance is an extremely active, confrontational form of
      resistance that was used by Martin Luther King and Gandhi to
      successfully resist other similar Apartheid regimes. Basically, the
      protestors recognize that the regime has to lie to its supporters and
      tell its supporters it is a democracy. So the protestors refuse to
      cooperate with the regime's oppressive restrictions. This forces the
      regime to either shut each restriction down or else show its
      brutality to the world by attacking the protestors. The protestors do
      not strike back or show any anger because their goal is to expose the
      regime.



      The regime seeks to conceal itself so it tries to blame the
      protestors, tries to stir them up into punching back, publicizes any
      violent acts that anyone even remotely related to the protestors'
      side does, and hides its own violence for as long as it can. So the
      protestors must patiently persist for a long period until it is
      finally publicized. The public also needs to be unified because the
      regime will try to focus on the violent acts of anyone it can find in
      order to shift attention away from its own brutality. Finally key
      leaders of the protests, or even the protestors themselves, may
      engage in hunger strikes to shove the other side into making
      important concessions.





      PALESTINIANS CAN EXPOSE ISRAELI APARTHEID



      Nonviolent resistance works when demonstrators focus on specific
      concrete issues, each for at least a minimum of one month at a time,
      and in numbers of people large enough to be visible. Demonstrators
      should unceasingly focus on one issue right after another in order to
      overwhelm the regime.



      One month the Palestinians can focus on building permits. The next
      month they can focus on checkpoints. ID cards. Restricted roads.
      Restricted water. Restricted land use. The Palestinians should not
      stop until they are given the full, unhindered right to vote.



      The demonstrators can use marches, sit-ins, strikes, boycotts, mass
      meetings and hunger strikes. And supporters of all backgrounds from
      around the world should join them.



      Each group of demonstrators should consist of people that have
      already been trained in this form of resistance, that have already
      promised not to retaliate in any way if attacked, and that have been
      screened for this in actual rehearsals. Supporters that believe they
      are not capable of restraining themselves if attacked should still be
      used in other logistical functions, such as in communication and
      transportation. Experienced demonstrators should act as marshals that
      direct the protests as peacefully as possible.



      This is an active form of resistance. The term `Nonviolent
      Resistance' tells us what it avoids using. The term `Disciplined
      Noncompliant Exposing Resistance' can tell the Palestinians what it
      actually does use.





      PALESTINIANS MUST DEMAND DEMOCRACY



      The Palestinians should emphasize they want the democratic right to
      vote in one united country without formalized rivalries. They should
      even name their movement after democracy. And if asked why they
      should merely respond, 'Because I am a Man. I am a Woman. I deserve
      to be treated like a human being. And I believe all issues should be
      dealt with through a democratic process.' That's it.



      This would put Israel and America on the defensive because they must
      convince themselves that Israel is the democracy and everyone else is
      a terrorist. Their goal is to conceal and complicate. Your goal is to
      expose and clarify.





      THE PEACE PROCESS MUST DEMAND DEMOCRACY



      The peace process failed because Israel tried to substitute land
      division for actual democracy. It could keep creating policies to
      oppress one group without its consent. The peace process focused on
      land when it should have focused on everyone's dignity. The peace
      process failed because our leaders did not have the courage to take
      the stances needed in order to truly solve this conflict.



      This is a conflict over rivalry, not land. If I see the ocean as a
      precious resource that will aid us all, then I will fish in it as
      productively as possible. I will not blame you for the fish I have
      not caught yet. But if I believe that I will only benefit from using
      the sea if you do not, then I will try to expand my use and restrict
      yours at all costs no matter how absurd this gets.



      The same is true of land. That is why Israel limits Palestinian
      building permits while it subsidizes settlements it cannot afford.
      That is why Israel says it is desperate for more Jewish immigrants
      while Palestinian refugees live in grim impoverished camps right next
      door in Lebanon. And that is why about one million Palestinians are
      packed like sardines into a tiny cage called the Gaza Strip while the
      actual lands where many of them came from are sparsely populated.
      (Alman Abu Sitta, `The Implementation of the Right to Return')



      Israel's Law of Return gives automatic citizenship to any Jew from
      around the world as soon as he arrives but does not apply to
      Palestinian refugees. Israel currently imports foreign labor.



      A `two state solution' formalizes the rivalry that has torn the
      people apart. A single democracy replaces it with common citizenship.
      It views justice in terms of each citizen's humanity rather than
      superficial prejudiced categories. It deals with the roots of the
      problem, not with mere superficial geographical boundaries.





      ISRAEL HAS ABUSED THE LAW



      Israel has used the law to hide and legitimize the oppression of one
      group by another. It says that Palestinians merely `Do not have
      permits' when it bulldozes their shops and homes. This shifts the
      focus from each oppressive act's actual goals and onto technical
      details.



      It is no different than a doctor that covers up the patient's gun
      shot wounds rather than treats him. Israel does this to maintain the
      lie that it is civilized even though it really is not. It is legal
      malpractice on a massive scale. And we all have a duty to expose and
      resist malpractice when it is present.



      Law is designed to aid the functioning of all citizens, not to
      oppress certain ones. Anyone that supports Israel's apartheid
      policies has shown an utmost contemptible disrespect for Law. Anyone
      that demands that a real democracy be setup, where all citizens may
      take part in forming the laws that shall govern them, has shown the
      highest respect for Law.





      ISLAM MUST RISE TO THIS CHALLENGE



      Martin Luther King and Gandhi viewed nonviolent resistance as part of
      vital spiritual struggles. The Palestinians may show the Islamic
      World how to use nonviolent resistance to expose how the West
      hypocritically oppresses other people while calling itself civilized.
      And Islam can perfect nonviolent resistance and bring it to new
      heights that the world has never seen before.





      PALESTINIANS MUST RISE TO THIS CHALLENGE



      Palestinians are extremely upset over Israel's apartheid policies and
      ethnic cleansing. Palestinians need to channel that anger into
      massive strategies that will work. This may happen naturally once
      this strategy shows signs of success.



      The Palestinians face overwhelming conditions right now. But I
      believe that they will be able to regroup in the near future and will
      be capable of using this strategy on a large scale.





      CONSCIENTIOUS JEWS MUST RISE TO THIS CHALLENGE



      Palestinians and Jews should unite in replacing this apartheid state
      with a real democracy.

      Their futures are intertwined and democracy builds bridges. Israeli
      Apartheid lives off of division, conflict and fear. That is why
      Israel has made the world far more dangerous for the Jewish people
      and has greatly fueled anti-Semitism.



      No conscientious Jew should remain silent. Jewish people should join
      Palestinian demonstrations just as white Americans joined black Civil
      Rights demonstrations. You will come out as the heroes in history.
      And those that staunchly supported this unjust discriminatory regime
      will come out as the villains.



      Justice is a human issue, not an arbitrary category. If you do not
      believe this, please read Martin Luther King's `Letter from
      Birmingham Jail' repeatedly. One cannot support the rights of some
      people while one conveniently ignores the rights of others.
