Etwas orakelhaft, aber in der Sache sicher zutreffend, hat es encolere in einem seiner/ihrer jüngsten Kommentare in diesem Blog ausgedrückt:
Die Zukunft ist offen, wenn sich die israelische Linke und die Friedensbewegungen zusammentun.
Einen wunderbaren Vorgeschmack darauf hat man gestern abend in Tel Aviv bekommen können:
On Saturday night June 4, the evening before June 5, we marked for the 44th time the anniversary of the Occupation. But at least we are now not anymore alone with the idea as to what the solution should look like. The demonstration was rather than looking back to 1967 anticipating the Palestinian request for UN recognition in September.
A wide coalition had been set up in preparation, including not only the Hadash Communists and Meretz but also the Labor Party and a faction of Kadima. There had been much debate on the main slogan in the ads calling for participation, with the text finally adopted reading „Bibi had said No – We say Yes to a Palestinian State“. Many activists felt that this obscured the issue of the borders, which are the main bone of contention. Gush Shalom prepared in advance numerous signs reading „“Yes to a Palestinian State in the 1967 Borders“ and at the gathering point on the Rabin Square they were eagerly taken up.
The marchers – estimated at between ten and twenty thousand – had all kinds of political and personal backgrounds – young people born years after the occupation began, and grizzled grey- and white-haired veterans, and many family groups of parents and children. (One had a big dog carrying the Peace Now poster with Netanyahu as the Pied Piper leading the people to disaster). The red flags of Hadash mingled with the colour green of Meretz, with the Gush Shalom two-flag signs, and the Peace Now peace flag modeled on the Israeli national flag, and the national flag itself, and also some activists expressed the common slogan by simply walking with a Palestinian flag.
