The Eternal Promise of the Young Generation of Anarchism

Anarchism is a vital strategy for all generations around the world. Modeling this strategy by the Palestinian youth of the FAUDA movement made the young Palestinian generation feel more responsible against the oppressive apartheid of Zionism. This magazine is edited by the Palestinian Anarchism Movement FAUDA, to report to those outside Palestine about the situation inside Palestine.

Before the current war, our comrades in Gaza cooperated very well to spread anti-apartheid thinking, especially in opposition to Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) headed by Mahmoud Abbas. The rest of the comrades in the West Bank and the occupied territories of 1948 were also at a high level of training and operational coordination. With the start of the war on October 7, 2023, the FAUDA movement turned all its attention to Gaza.

Today, Palestine is the front of freedom fighters all over the world, and Gaza is like its heart. In a situation where the cruel Zionist enemy does not spare any weapons, missiles or fighters against the innocent people of Gaza and attacks our brothers and sisters in Gaza day and night, we must stand by the people of Gaza. Everyone should show their loyalty to the cause of Palestine in any way they can, be it material or spiritual aid, through cyber space or through international demonstrations.

Palestinian youth in the West Bank and the 48 territories have coherent and active structures to help reach Gaza. In addition to this, the fight against the oppressive Zionist forces, whether the usurping settlers or the Israeli military forces, is persistently pursued by the youth in all its forms. Clarification and clarification of various Palestinian issues, holding demonstrations and pursuing the rights of innocent Palestinian prisoners are actively being done. The world should know that the real devil of apartheid is doing whatever he wants against the innocent people in Palestine today, and international organizations and the United Nations are not doing anything! We are proud to be with the freedom fighters around the world in the struggle for freedom, and from here we announce that you are also a partner in our united front against Zionism.

Young people supporting anarchism everywhere in Palestine have dedicated their whole lives and efforts to the struggle. This is the duty of all of us, this is our homeland, and we will sacrifice our lives for the freedom of our people and homeland. Every day in every corner of Palestine we have hard conflicts with Zionist military forces. Every day, some of our friends are martyred or injured, but we continue our way. We have proven that we support Moqavamah and consider Moqavamah as the only way to save and free the people and Palestine.

A report on the latest developments by Gaza comrades

  • At least 23,084 Palestinians have been killed and 58,926 others injured in ongoing Israeli bombardment of the Gaza Strip since October 7

  • Israeli forces bombarded the eastern part of Khan Younis and the central Gaza Strip amid ground clashes on Monday

  • Israel said four soldiers were killed in Gaza on Monday, bringing its total war losses there to 182.

People carrying the bodies of loved ones through floodwaters, children drenched and barefoot, families huddled around campfires struggling to stay warm. These are just some of the sights we’re seeing in Gaza this winter. With more than 80 percent of the population currently displaced, according to the UN, and many living in tents, the arrival of winter in Gaza makes the already dire humanitarian crisis significantly worse. As the war on Gaza continues, we look at the science of empathy and question why it puts a limit on human compassion. Throughout Israel’s war on Gaza, there have been calls to remember the names of those who lost their lives and to remember that they are not just numbers. However, as the death toll continues to rise, those killed become figures in the minds of those outside of the war. It is a response known as psychic numbing. Why is it that during mass atrocities or suffering, it can seem difficult at times to feel true empathy?

The declared goals of the war on Gaza are to eliminate the Hamas movement, have their captives back and carry out the displacement plan, but We’d like to tell you that the enemy, despite the destruction and massacres, has failed to achieve any of its war goals. the Hamas movement exists across the homeland and abroad as well as in the conscience of the Ummah and the world’s free people, so it cannot be eliminated. We believe that the occupation state only succeeded in exposing its bloodthirsty and murderous face to the whole world after committing all these massacres. After about 100 days, the Israeli intelligence, its spy drones and its Western ally (US) failed to liberate a single captive from Gaza, the only way for the Israeli detainees to leave Gaza alive is when all the Palestinian prisoners are released from Israeli jails.

Israel controls all access into and out of the Gaza Strip. This means that Palestinians living there often cannot receive medical care unless it occurs in Gaza. However, there are not enough medical professionals and training opportunities to be able to offer comprehensive medical care and keep up with the demand of health issues caused by lack of food, water, sanitation, and frequent periods of conflict. Additionally, Gaza also faces crises when it comes to electricity, fuel, and water— all of which are essential for many medical procedures. Without these resources, the doctors and medical professionals that are in Gaza may not be able to help patients in need. Many medical centers in Gaza have had to stop due to a lack of fuel, and around 20% of the necessary medicines and equipment were lacking. Because of the humanitarian circumstances that Palestinians in Gaza face, the main way they receive medical care is through medical aid, which is most commonly provided by nonprofit organizations and charities. Through new medical centers, medical training programs, and medical missions, these organizations help provide crucial services to Palestinians who might otherwise not have access to them. This includes access to mental health resources as one-third of the Gaza Strip population is in need of psychological and social support, mainly due to living in a warzone during times of conflict with Israel.

A report on the latest developments by West Bank comrades

  • Live ammunition fired by Israeli forces injured a young Palestinian late on Monday night in the town of Qaffin, north of Tulkarem, said local sources

  • Israeli forces shot and killed three young Palestinian men: Yusuf Ali Al-Kholi, 22, Ahed Salman Mousa, 23, and Tareq Amjad Shahin, 24, in the town of Iktaba to the east of Tulkarem city on Monday, a fourth was detained by forces despite being shot and injured

  • An Israeli military vehicle ran over one of these men after shooting him

  • National and Islamic factions declared a general strike in Tulkarem on Tuesday to mourn the three Palestinians killed.

  • Overnight raids in Anabta, Kafr al-Labad, Qalqilya, Nablus, Husan, west of Bethlehem, Atara, north of Ramallah, and several towns and villages in Jenin.

At a time when its military forces are focused on waging war against Hamas to the south and deterring Hezbollah to the north, Israel is relieved that the West Bank has not developed into a full-scale battleground. For a multitude of reasons, Hamas’s calls to open a second Palestinian front have gone largely unheeded so far. Yet Israeli troops are still engaged in daily operations to suppress violence in the West Bank, while the number of Palestinian fatalities continues to rise, creating a fragile situation that will require officials to keep a close eye on local security developments and the political durability of the Palestinian Authority.

According to data from the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), 128 significant Moqavamah attacks have been carried out in (or in some cases from) the West Bank since October in the northern part of the territory and in the southern part. The vast majority of these were shootings, followed by stabbings, vehicular attacks, explosions, and rocket fire. Against this backdrop, Moqavamah has been trying to mobilize West Bankers—especially the younger generation—to open another front against Israel. The group sees youths as ripe for exploitation because they are more likely to identify with local militants and blame the Palestinian Authority for allowing Israel to expand its military activities in the West Bank. Statements by senior Hamas officials, media outlets, and social networks are therefore emphasizing the strategic connection between the Gaza war and the advancement of the entire Palestinian nationalist and religious agenda—not just freeing prisoners, but also ending the occupation in full and playing on the fear that Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa Mosque is somehow in danger.

The PA’s main concern is its negative image in the eyes of local Palestinians, most of whom dismiss it as Israel’s agent and are increasingly likely to support its archrival Hamas. According to a recent poll by Arab World for Research and Development (AWRAD) in Ramallah, 83% of West Bank respondents support Hamas’s October 7 attack and 88% believe the group is playing a positive role. The majority also support the various groups carrying out local terrorist attacks, including Hamas’s Izz aldin al-Qassam Brigades (95%), Palestinian Islamic Jihad (93%), and al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades (87%). In contrast, most disapprove of the role played by the PA and Fatah (85% and 70%, respectively), while 57% perceive the current war as one directed against all Palestinians. Other polls by Washington Institute researchers have delved into the nuanced reasons why these sentiments exist—and why they can rapidly wax and wane with changing political and security circumstances.

In light of these views, PA president Mahmoud Abbas and senior Fatah figures have been careful to publicly condemn Israel and call on the international community to protect Palestinians. For example, in a November 29 speech, Abbas declared that the world must not stand idly by in the face of “deliberate and systematic harm to the Palestinian people,” arguing that the only way to maintain stability and regional peace is by ending the occupation and fulfilling Palestinian rights. Yet beneath this implied support for groups that actively oppose Israeli occupation, many PA officials privately hope that the IDF succeeds in smashing Hamas and killing its leaders—the only scenario in which the PA would be able to return to Gaza.

To facilitate this goal, the PA has played an increasingly vital security role throughout the West Bank in recent weeks. Its forces serve as a restraining factor, preventing the public from going out to confront Israeli troops during IDF counterterrorism operations. The PA justifies this approach by telling the public that it is protecting them from “triggerhappy” Israel.

The state of public opinion in Israel has its own messages, so that according to the latest survey conducted on November 14 by an Israeli university, only 4% of respondents consider Netanyahu a reliable source of information about the Gaza war. In another poll on October 30, only 20 percent of the Israeli public expressed confidence in Netanyahu’s cabinet. This rate is the lowest level of trust in a prime minister and his cabinet in an important matter called war. From now on, the whispers of his change after the end of the war have started from the parties in favor and against. The large march of prisoners’ families on Saturday towards the Prime Minister of Israel has made the situation more complicated for Netanyahu. Netanyahu knows that without significant changes in the circumstances, his downfall is certain, and this raises the possibility of catastrophes in Gaza.

So far, the armed to the teeth and lawless army, which during 95 days of war with a number of Palestinian guerillas deprived of the minimum facilities, could not achieve a little, is a failed army more than anything else. The Shafa hospital scandal should also be added. Attacking hospital rooms with a tank and not finding anything is both a moral scandal and an informational scandal! Let’s not forget that Israel has the power of eavesdropping and espionage systems in Gaza as powerful as the bombs it has dropped. Let’s believe that after 95 days of war, the intelligence failure of the Shafa hospital and the failure to find the location of the Israeli prisoners until this moment is probably no less than the failure of the 7th of October. We still believe that the extent of the operations and crimes committed in Gaza is more than a symbol of Israel’s military power, it is a clear symbol of the weakness of warfare, and the fear of the Israeli soldiers along with their anti-human nature. In addition, the current deplorable reality is a symbol of the weakness of the system and international laws and values claimed by the West in controlling crises and defending human rights, especially “non-white people”. Even now, with the uncertain results of the Shefa Hospital operation, it is likely that the more populous parts of Gaza, as well as the south of Gaza, which also includes part of the population of the north, will be attacked. Let’s not forget that in past wars, Israel has focused on creating a human disaster and killing a large number of children or citizens in one place in order to create a lot of psychological burden and increase the cost of resistance with destruction and destruction and unforgettable bitterness. Time is running out for Netanyahu, and Israel’s international backers, including the United States, are said to have given him limited time to bring the war to a conclusion under pressure from public opinion. It is not unlikely that within this time limit, the scope and intensity of Israel’s violence will increase. Even in the situation of getting close to an agreement in the negotiations, we see that Israel has finished its work with a great tragedy or massacre like Qana. Unfortunately, there was no news in the world about the bombing of Al-Fakhora school in Jabalia area, or the order to quickly evacuate refugees to Shafa hospital and Khan Younis city with hundreds of thousands of people who have taken refuge there. In this situation and scene, governments and public opinion of the world are still responsible. Any kind of silence today increases the probability of future disasters, and every cry increases the probability of a ceasefire.

What is life?

We have been fighting in Palestine for years so that we may experience it one day.

We don’t have one more way for this experience...
