Oppose the imperialist plan to oppress the Palestinians

Typical to colonialists and imperialists US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and foreign ministers representing the “Arab Six” Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, the Emirates, Qatar, and the Palestinian Authority (PA), met in the World Economic Forum (WEC) in Riyadh in April to decide who will rule Gaza the day after the war, according to a Saturday report from the Hezbollah-affiliated Al-Ahkbar, citing a document received by the Lebanese publication.

The plan is divided into two stages. The first is a ceasefire, recognition of a Palestinian state, Israel’s acceptance of the PA’s return to the Gaza Strip, the release of hostages in Hamas captivity in exchange for the release of Palestinian prisoners, and the formation of a technocratic government in Gaza to rebuild the Strip.

The plan’s second stage is the announcement of a peace process, which would include Israel-Saudi normalization. Also, final status negotiations regarding the rejection of the right of the refugees to return, Jerusalem, the guarding of Israeli settlements, and the formation of a Palestinian Bantustan providing cheap labor for the Israeli capitalists and protecting the Zionist state.

According to the Jerusalem Post, while Hamas was not directly participating in the WEC “day after” discussions, it has previously indicated its approval of similar plans. In February, Sky News Arabia reported that Hamas had agreed to form a technocratic government in Gaza after the war was over. The earlier report additionally stated that Hamas was open to joining the PLO.

We are not sure whether Hamas intends this, but it is possible, and for this reason, we do not give Hamas any political support.

In any case, we denounce this imperialist plan. The only solution is a working-class revolution at the head of the oppressed Arab nations. The revolution will open the door for the return of the Palestinian refugees, will give the Israeli minority equal civil rights including language and religion, and be part of the socialist federation of the Middle East.

Oppose the imperialist plan aimed at the security of Israel that will continue to oppress and exploit the Palestinians!

Down with all imperialists!

For Palestine red and free from the river to the sea!
