Israel has launched new bus lines connecting the Palestinian West Bank to Israel. The Israel government’s plans for the new bus lines were announced in November 2012. This was due to complaints from Israel settlers saying they didn’t feel safe sitting next to Palestinians.

At least 30,000 Palestinians travel to Israel to work due to the economical strangle Israel has on Palestine’s economy. The majority of workers who work across the border a builders Israel has very tight restriction on building in the Palestinian territories unless you are Israeli. The also have tight restrictions on materials allowed into Palestine so building work is rare.  Palestinians working in Israel are seen as cheap labor and have to go against their morals to earn a living.

In the past settlers have complained to the police about Palestinians on the same bus as them. This has resulted in many Palestinian workers being removed…

“To develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples, and to take other appropriate measures to strengthen universal peace” (Article I of the UN Charter).

In the world current international system of nation-states, the ideal that a national group can operate as an sdindependent component in this framework seems fitting. As the UN charter reads, the right for people to determine their own political and societal structure should “strengthen universal peace.” While that conclusion is certainly up for debate, we cannot deny its central role in forming the geopolitical globe that we see today.

Around the world, stateless national groups still envision self-determination movements as the vehicle for independence and increased international influence. Strong sovereign sentiments pervade politics in both the East and the West, from the Quebecois, Scottish, and Catalans, to Palestinians…

Not What You Might Think

Mar. 5, 2013 by Darius

This week, two new bus lines are going into service in Israel:  designed for Palestinians only.  The move comes ostensibly to make life easier for the tens of thousands of Palestinians who live in the West Bank but work in Israel.  Unfortunately, motives might not be so pure.  There have been numerous reports of Israeli settlers in the West Bank complaining about having to ride with Palestinians and even footage of Palestinians being illegally forced to get off buses.  (Source:  Israel Introduces ‘Palestinian Only’ Bus Lines, Following Complaints from Jewish Settlers,”  Haaretz [Israel], March 3, 2013, http://www.haaretz.com/news/national/israel-introduces-palestinian-only-bus-lines-following-complaints-from-jewish-settlers-1.506869)

Bus lines designed to serve Palestinians are a good idea.  There are more Palestinian workers who commute to Israel now than there have been in decades.  Many of these workers were forced, due to a lack of alternatives, to take private van and taxi services, for prices…

Notes toward an International Libertarian Eco-Socialism

A most happy birthday today for Rosa Luxemburg (1871-1919), communist militant, feminist, and uncompromising critic of militarism and imperialism!  Author of various works and essays, including The Accumulation of Capital, Luxemburg represented a key figure within the most radical strains of Marxism at the time of the Second International; a trenchant student and critic of European imperialism, she theorized the hegemonic negativity of capitalist rule as stemming from the historical dissolution of indigenous communism (statist and non-statist) as prosecuted by the superior weaponry and brutality of European colonialism throughout most of the world’s regions.  Within her analysis of proletarian movements against the prevailing system, RL emphasized the importance of spontaneity from below, and she looked to the mass-general strike (as seen e.g. in Russia, 1905) as the principal means of abolishing the rule of capital.  She was heavily involved with organizing against the total brutality of World War…
