• Antisémitisme = antisionisme ? C’est ce que des élu·e·s LREM envisagent de faire voter au Parlement, faisant ainsi passer la critique d’Israël pour un #délit

    Ils reprennent notamment les mots de #Macron, prononcés le 16.07.2017 lors de la commémoration aux victimes de la rafle du Vél d’Hiv’ :

    « Nous nous céderons rien à l’antisionisme, car il est la forme réinventée de l’antisémitisme »

    • #UJFP : Nous sommes juifs et nous sommes antisionistes

      Nous sommes Juifs, héritiers d’une longue période où la grande majorité des Juifs ont estimé que leur émancipation comme minorité opprimée, passait par l’émancipation de toute l’humanité.

      Nous sommes antisionistes parce que nous refusons la séparation des Juifs du reste de l’humanité.

  • Comment #Israël a remporté la bataille du territoire.
    « Personne ne doute vraiment que l’annexion de Jérusalem soit définitive »

    Soixante-dix ans après la création de l’Etat juif, Israël a remporté la bataille du territoire, estiment les universitaires Julieta Fuentes et Philippe Subra dans une tribune au « Monde ».

    Tribune. Le transfert de l’ambassade américaine à Jérusalem est certes contraire au droit international et ne va pas dans le sens de la paix. Mais il est surtout la reconnaissance d’un état de fait : cent vingt ans après l’arrivée des premiers immigrants et la parution du livre de Theodor #Herzl, L’Etat des #Juifs, Israël contrôle, d’une manière ou d’une autre, 90 % du territoire de l’ancienne #Palestine, et personne ne doute vraiment que l’annexion de Jérusalem-Est soit définitive.❞

    Un paysage homogène

    C’est grâce à ces actions d’aménagement que les quelques milliers d’immigrants juifs arrivés en Palestine dans les années 1890 et les 600 000 habitants juifs présents à la fin du mandat britannique, en 1948, sont aujourd’hui 6,6 millions. Chaque fois que les armes se sont tues, l’aménagement a pris le relais de l’action militaire, les bulldozers celui des tanks et des avions de chasse. Avec les mêmes objectifs : prendre, sans retour en arrière possible, le #contrôle du maximum de territoire, accueillir et assimiler les nouveaux immigrants, affaiblir la présence arabe et compenser les faiblesses géostratégiques du pays. Rétrospectivement, on ne peut qu’être frappé par l’intelligence et l’efficacité de cette #stratégie, mise en œuvre sur plus d’un siècle, et par la capacité de ses promoteurs à l’adapter à des conditions géopolitiques n’ayant cessé d’évoluer.

    • L’emprisonnement de civils par milliers, la torture, les assassinats, l’emprisonnement d’adolescents et les tirs à balles réelles sur des enfants ... cela explique cette merveilleuse réussite du suprémacisme juif que votre article illustre quel que peu.


  • Israël est, par définition, une colonie européenne - [UJFP]

    Comment se fait-il que la Palestine, partie intégrante du Moyen-Orient, et morceau de terre habité depuis l’Antiquité par une population orientale ayant adopté, depuis plus d’un millénaire, la culture et la langue arabe, à l’instar de la Syrie, de l’Égypte ou de l’Algérie, soit, en une centaine d’années, devenue un État peuplé de migrants venus du monde entier ? On s’interrogera également pour comprendre comment la population originelle de la Palestine est dispersée dans des camps de réfugiés, une partie étant soumise à un pouvoir militaire d’occupation, et une minorité d’entre –elle, seulement, disposant de la citoyenneté dans le nouvel État d’immigrés, qui se considère comme faisant partie de l’Occident. Les réponses à ces interrogations se situent dans un contexte en dehors duquel le conflit entre le sionisme et le monde arabe demeure incompréhensible ; à savoir : le colonialisme.(...)


  • Que sont devenus les descendants de Theodor Herzl : une succession de suicides, de morts d’overdose et de maladies mentales

    Unveiling the tragedy of Theodor Herzl’s family - Features - Israel News | Haaretz
    http://www.haaretz.com/news/features/.premium-1.654036

    Herzl has no direct descendants left today. His wife Julie died in 1907, three years after Herzl, after being hospitalized a number of times for mental illness and drug addiction. Their son Hans, who converted to a series of Christian denominations, shot himself in 1930, on the day of his sister Paulina’s funeral. Paulina also suffered from mental illness and drug abuse from a young age, and died at 40 of a heroin overdose.

    Herzl’s youngest daughter, Margarethe (Trude), who had little contact with her siblings and also suffered from mental illness, died in the Thereseinstadt concentration camp in 1943. Her son, Stephan Theodor Neumann (who later Anglicized his name during World War II to Stephen Norman) – Herzl’s only grandchild – committed suicide by jumping off a bridge in Washington D.C. in 1946, after he learned of his parents’ death during the Holocaust. He was the only Zionist of Herzl’s descendants, and even made a quick visit to Palestine in 1945, a year before he killed himself.

    A four-part television series that started this week on Channel 1, “The Herzls,” reveals that various relatives – some closer and some less so – of Herzl live among us in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Givatayim, Ramat Gan, Arad, Matat, Nazareth and Kibbutz Beit Hashita. Others were located in Vienna – living not far from Herzl’s home – Serbia, Croatia and Belgium. Some have hidden their relationship to Herzl from their children.

    The work on the series was spread over five years, with breaks. The investigation discovered that the tragedy and drama continued to haunt the family even many years after Herzl’s death. One of the episodes focuses on the tragic figure of Frederika (Pnina) Herzl, a first cousin once removed of Herzl. Frederika was born in 1933 in Vienna to Max Herzl. In 1938, when she was 5, her parents felt it was dangerous for a Jewish girl bearing the name Herzl to live under the Nazi regime and sent her to her mother’s aunt and uncle in Czechoslovakia. In 1939, with the Nazi invasion of Prague, her parents signed a fictitious adoption order so Frederika could immigrate to Israel with her aunt and uncle. Her parents managed to escape the Nazis and survived the Holocaust, and in 1948 they too arrived in Israel – with a court order canceling the adoption. But when they asked to have their daughter back, they were told no.

    In early 1948, before the founding of the State of Israel, an ugly and painful legal fight broke out over the girl, which further damaged the reputation of the Herzl family. The family’s legal battle received a great deal of local press coverage: Haaretz reported on February 24, 1948 on the court case, and other newspapers talked about the “tragedy of the Herzl family.”

    The adoptive parents said they were worried her biological parents would return to Vienna with her, but the court ordered them to allow her parents to meet with her from time to time. Maariv reported that instead of bringing them closer, these meetings increased the suffering of her biological parents and she was very apathetic toward them, introducing her mother to her friends as her aunt.

    In 1949 the Tel Aviv District Court ruled that Frederika would spend the holidays with her biological parents, “but even these meetings turned into a tragedy and the parents could not bear them. The two fell ill from their great sorrow,” reported the paper.

    When she turned 18 in 1951, Frederika – who was called Pnina in Haaretz – asked to renew relations with her parents and met them. But even though her parents were very happy, the joy did not last for long and this was the last time they saw each other, reported the newspaper.

    Max Herzl died in 1952, “broken and filled with suffering.” A relative said he committed suicide and later Frederika also attempted to kill herself, and was hospitalized under her adoptive parents’ name. After that people lost track of her, but the research for the television series found that she returned to Vienna and worked as a librarian, and was known in the local Jewish community. She died in 2009 – today only a cardboard sign marks her grave – and none of her relatives in Israel knew about her death.

    “I read a lot of books written about Herzl,” Kipper Zaretzky told Haaretz. The book that influenced her the most was “Neguhot Min Ha’avar (Illuminations from the Past)” (in Hebrew) published in 1961 by historian Joseph Nedava, who also went on a search for Herzl’s relatives.

    “He shows the difficult psychological journey Herzl’s children made,” she said. “Today, when you ask people on the street, they tell you: ‘Yes, they were all crazy.’ But it’s not so simple. In the series I try to show the long-suffering journey they traveled until the end,” said Kipper Zaretzky.

    In 1949, Herzl’s remains were brought to Israel from Vienna for reinternment on the Jerusalem hill that bears his name. “Not a mourning parade was the funeral for Herzl’s bones in Jerusalem, but a victory march, victory of the vision that became reality,” Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion eulogized Herzl. In 2006, 56 years later, two of his children, Paulina and Hans, were reburied near him. A year later, his grandson’s remains were brought to Israel and in 2013 a memorial plaque was erected for Julia Herzl, who was cremated at her request and her ashes were lost over the years.

    “The circle has been closed. All of the Herzl family have returned to be together, even if only symbolically,” Prof. Ariel Feldstein told Haaretz at the time. Feldstein was behind bringing Herzl’s children’s remains to Israel, as well as the plaque for Julia.
