From ‘Right of Return’ to ‘Return in Practice’

We learned today about deadly clashes in the Syrian and Lebanese borders with Israel. We also read that similar clashes took place in Gaza and the West Bank.

The Jewish state is under seige. The IDF forces reportedly fired at Syrian, Lebanese and Gazan  ‘Nakba Day’ protesters who breached border fences.

According to Ynet, the Israeli northern border is now a ‘military zone.’

Israel Military officials said the IDF was using “all means” in order to “keep infiltrators out of Israel”.  Someone should remind the Israelis that it is actually the Israelis who are the infiltrators. The Palestinians are the indigenous people of the land. The land that is stretched between the river and the sea is called Palestine and it is just a question of time before it is returned to its owners.

What we see today is a clear message to the Jewish State, the Israelis and Zionists around the world.   Palestine is not an academic notion; it is actually a vibrant struggle for justice. The right of return is not just an ethical concept; it is now put into practice.

The days of the Jewish State are numbered.

Author Details
Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer. Atzmon’s album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year,[4] he has been called “surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz.” His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a “devoted political artist.” He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as “one of London’s finest saxophonists” stated: “It is Atzmon’s blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read.” His new book The Wandering Who? is now availble at Amazon.com
