Palestine is Not for Sale!
While the Free Palestine Alliance (FPA) condemns
in the strongest possible terms the wholesale of
Palestine at the upcoming Annapolis Conference;
we recognize well that condemnation alone is no
longer of any real value. The time is now for a
clear alternative to emerge in place of this hopelessly corrupt leadership.
Annapolis, like Camp David, Madrid and Oslo
before, is the natural outcome to the path of
surrender that Abbas and others have
taken. Although this upcoming conference itself
may not be a terminal one, it is nonetheless a
stepping stone to the gallows, if we allow it,
where Palestine is intended for execution by the
United States and Israel in full collaboration
with their Arab and Palestinian functionary minions.
We have warned before that we can no longer trust
this treasonous leadership. Starting with Abbas
and passing through Abed Rabbo, Dahlan, Mansour,
Malki, Irakat, Qurei, and a host of others too
long to be named here, the US government has now
added yet another parasitic group of functionary
Arabs that can only survive if they deliver the
defeat of Palestine on a silver platter.
As was the case following the Nakba of 1948, when
the Palestinian movement was reclaimed from the
corrupt minions of Britain and the United States,
and pan-Arabism emerged in opposition to despotic
monarchs and colonial rule, it is once again our
role to put an end to this ongoing charade of shame.
"Palestine is Not for Sale", we must all announce
loud and clear. And all those participating in
its butchery must be tried for their crimes, despite the passage of time.
At this critical stage, the Palestinian people
must openly challenge the false claim of
representation by Abbas and his minions. We must
organize away from all those providing cover and
legitimacy for this path of surrender. We must
challenge them wherever they are - in every
living room, in every mosque and church, and in
every political setting. No one should be able
to pull the wool in front of our eyes anymore by
using the old cliché of "unity". There can be no
unity with those defending treason. And
certainly there can be no unity with those
extinguishing our existence and burying alive our history.
Treason and surrender can never be acceptable
alternatives to our people. Never!
What we need now is a popular and principled
unity in the form of a front to oppose this path
to disaster. This is the time to organize for a
long term political alternative and strategy,
starting from every camp, town, and community in
Palestine and throughout exile. There are
hundreds of thousands of trade unionists,
political organizers, professionals, and
activists with decades of experience who have
arrived at the same conclusion
worldwide. Countless meetings are being held in
every corner of this globe where our people are
systematically rejecting the treason of this
corrupt and imposed leadership. A popular and
democratic alternative is, therefore, inevitable, and the time is now.
Meanwhile, it is our duty here in the US to
expose the likes of Mansour, Asali, Ibish and so
many others like them who are benefiting from
this silent butchery. If we accept treason and
surrender as a "difference in opinion", and give
cover and legitimacy to institutions and
organizations that serve first and foremost the
interest of corrupt despotic regimes, we would be
making a mistake of historical proportions.
Enough is enough! This absurdity must stop.
It is time for an alternative to emerge. Details
of the Los Angeles meeting will be announced soon.
