Israel/Palestine: a compilation of links

Israel/Palestine: a compilation of links

Introduction:  We are providing a compilation of links to help educate and further a discussion on the class nature of the Israeli state and, additionally, make a case for a solution.  In part, this is motivated by the position taken by some on the left in favor of a “two-state” solution, which in our opinion is incorrect  — even when put in terms of two “socialist” states as part of a socialist Middle East.  This “two socialist states” position is an abstraction and an excuse to put off concrete action now in solidarity with a legitimate national liberation struggle.
