Tomorrow is the Zionist Kristallnacht in Jerusalem

Yossi Schwartz ISL (RCIT section in Israel/Occupied Palestine), 04.06.2024

The day the Hooligan Minister of Police, Ben Gavir, has been waiting for has arrived. Tomorrow is the Jerusalem Day flag parade, when the right-winger mob will march through the Muslim Quarter shouting “death to the Arabs” and, protected by the police, attack any Arab they see. The Zionists celebrate the capture in 1967 of East Jerusalem and its subsequent occupation, or what the Israeli government refers to as the “reunification” of Jerusalem.

If the KRISTALLNACHT comes to your mind, it is not by mistake; it does remind you of the events when On November 9–10, 1938, Nazi leaders unleashed a series of pogroms against the Jewish population in Germany and recently incorporated territories. This event came to be called Kristallnacht (The Night of Broken Glass) because of the shattered glass that littered the streets after the vandalism and destruction of Jewish-owned businesses, synagogues, and homes.

“Albert Friedlander recounts his experience in Berlin after the November Pogrom (Kristallnacht):”There was a lot of glass on the streets. We lived in the West End, surrounded by shops and many Jewish shops. This was late at night, and it was dark, but we had no trouble in picking out the Jewish shops. They had been looted, the windows had been smashed, and there were ashes, rubble, and debris outside some shops. We had not seen how our fellow Jews had been treated: beaten, taken to prison, some of them never to return. But in our hiding place, listening to our friends, we heard more and more of the story of Kristallnacht.[i]”’

In 2022, some 70,000 Zionists participated in the march. Israeli marchers beat and pepper-sprayed Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem as they marched through the Muslim Quarter, wounding at least 79 Palestinians, 28 of whom were hospitalized, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society.

The Zionists who are frustrated by the defeat of Israel by the Palestinian resistance in Gaza are likely to physically attack Palestinians in the Muslim Quarter, and any Palestinian who will defend himself/herself will be arrested by the police. If any Palestinian is killed, Israel will say, of course, that this is a tragic error, and to compare the flag march to Kristallnacht is Anti-Semitism of the new Nazis.

It is true that Israel is not a fascist state but an apartheid state of settler colonialists. However, even though the Zionist state is not identical to Nazi Germany, there are many similarities between the two, which explain why so many people think that Israel is a Nazi state.

Down with the Zionist monster!

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