Miscellaneous statements and leaflets by the Jewish Anarchist Committee. Primarily covering the early 1980s period of the Lebanese Civil War, Israeli and Syrian excursions into Lebanon. The JAC aim was to promote an anarcho-syndicalist, anti-zionist, and non-national libertarian point of view on matters pertaining to the Israeli invasion and within the broader political scene in New York and elsewhere on these and other matters. The JAC was heavily supported by the New York / New Jersey based Libertarian Workers Group (LWG).
This early 1980s statement was published by a number of youthful, 20-something, mostly Jewish born members of the New York and New Jersey based Libertarian Workers Group (LWG). The LWG was a very active group of young anarcho-syndicalists, libertarian socialists and libertarian communists.
The goal was to proffer a libertarian worker anti-zionist, anti-nationalist point of view.
The conflict in Palestine is tragic in many respects - it seems eternal, and it has lasted a long time and seems to have no end. The whole ruling capitalist world including its mass media machinery creates extremely close attention, but very little is done to stop open barbarism that is about the super strong Israeli side that continually oppress and humiliate its weak counterpart, i.e., Palestinian semi-sate. However, the heavy price for these militaristic demos is normally paid by the masses, mainly from Palestinian side.
Ehud Ein-Gil looks at the proposals of maverick zionists for solving the Palestinian-Israeli conflict via forms of federalism which, while themselves weighted heavily against the Palestinians, do signal the usefulness of federalism for socialists in proposing how Israelis and Palestinians can live together on equal terms.
