Colonialism cannot be resolved around the negotiating table.   Share:  
Thrust of argument: Miko Peled writes 'Liberal Zionists, and even some who are progressive seek to continue to talk and to debate, which is why they like organizations like the Palestinian Authority, and the various NGOs that have sprouted in Palestine. They reduce the struggle to a philosophical - political debate on the issues of human rights and self-determination. They allow people to live in the illusion that colonialism can be resolved around the negotiating table. They promote the deception that if only young Palestinian boys and girls could meet and play with young Israeli boys and girls at a summer camp, then one day all will be well. But the young Israelis return and serve in the brutal armed forces of the colonial regime and the young Palestinians return to the refugee camps, the various concentration camps and open air prisons that Israel has created for them, and to being unwanted residents in their own land.

But, as Franz Fanon writes in 'The Wretched of the Earth,' 'Colonialism is not a machine capable of thinking, a body endowed with reason. It is naked violence and only gives in when confronted by greater violence.' My father and the other liberal Zionists were wrong then and their successors are wrong now. For there is no way to stop the colonial machine once it has started. You cannot contain its insatiable hunger, its lust for power and its brutal force. That is why a 'Zionist peace camp' is a sham, that is why there is no possibility of peace with the apartheid regime known as Israel.'
Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Dismantling the negotiating table, in this case, is part of the solution.

Removal of resistance: The racist corporate state, with its TTIP and TPP and ISDS is using negotiating tables as nazi gas chambers, effectively. Unification: To change the game you should help create a democratic media. For example you could install a grid and within months you will have audiences all over the country and world, wherever you are - if you work really hard. It's free. And you can make a difference, maybe even earn a fair wage out of it and be an entrepreneur and create jobs. That's my plan. So join me. Do the same.
