October 2023 – Palestine’s ‘Tet’?

Due to the failure of the international ‘community’ to do anything to stop the genocide and ethnic cleansing (over almost five months now) by the US-backed Zionist settler state in Occupied Palestine in Gaza the links to articles/podcasts etc., shining a light on this humanitarian disaster has grown exponentially. In order to make it easier for readers to keep up to date with the most recent news and views it has been decided to split the page, using the end of February 2024 as the cut off point.

However, this does not mean that earlier links have been deleted. They have merely been converted into a post and can be found by following the link on October 2023 – Palestine’s ‘Tet’? – from October 2023 to end of February 2024.

Reference material

Some people who visit this page might be familiar with the terms that are commonly used in the articles, the links to which are provided below. However, some may not. That being the case it seems to be a good idea to give a few definitions of some of the more often used terminology. These definitions have been provided by Comrades at bannedthought, a site that also provides a great deal of material about revolutionary movements throughout the world.

Zionism

‘Two-state solution’ (Palestine)

Zionism — and the creation of Israel

Zionism — and imperialism

‘Greater Israel’

Nakba

For some of the documents that explain that what the US-backed Zionist settler state is now carrying out in Gaza (and also in the West Bank) is nothing new – and is the basis of Zionism and the illegal establishment of the state of Israel – you might find it interesting to go to The Facts about the Palestine ‘Problem’ and Palestine – the background to the US-backed Zionist settler state.
