We Reject Israel-Africa Summit in Zambia – Go and Free Palestine Now!!!

Joint Statement in opposition to the Proposed Israel-Africa Summit slated for Zambia in 2018 | Issued by the Economic Liberation Association - Zambia, and the All-African People's Revolutionary Party

Issued on 30 December 2017 


  1. The proposed plan by the Imperialist and war-mongering State of Israeli to hold a first ever Israeli-Africa summit in Lusaka, Zambia come 2018, is a plan that must be roundly condemned and flatly rejected by all peace-loving and progressive Zambians, Africans of all nations, and people of the world. The Zambian government of the Patriotic Front (PF) under the leadership of President Edgar Lungu must uphold the popular opinion of the Zambians on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: we will always stand with Palestinians in their struggle for freedom from the occupation of their land by apartheid Israel! The Zambian government must therefore act in accordance with our position and cancel the Israeli-Africa summit slated for Zambia in 2018. We refuse to associate with, host, participate, or facilitate any summit whatsoever with international war-mongers and murderers with the blood of children on their hands! Our national tradition is one of hosting, harbouring and aiding freedom fighters and liberation movements, not hosting international perpetrators of war and mass genocide!
  2. For our part, we shall not condone any open or secret collaboration with Apartheid Israel, by allowing them to use Zambian soil as a base and launchpad for its neo-liberal and capitalist global domination agenda in Africa! We know that zionists initially had plans (prior to 1947) to colonize and settle its landless people in Uganda, Sudan, Zambia or Madagascar! We therefore reject this soft aggression aimed at establishing Israeli/zionist colonies/corporations anywhere in Africa!
  3. Simply put, Israel has its hands and boots soaked with the blood of millions of Palestinians - innocent men, women and children whom it has been shooting, bombing, butchering and imprisoning in high-walled and razor-gated open-air concentration camps in Gaza and the West Bank, since it illegally occupied Palestinian territory with the approval of the United States (US) and its all-weather-puppet, the United Nations (UN). It must be mentioned that no African state must allow itself to be deceived by Israeli diplomacy, or courted, patronized, induced or coerced through the promise of aid, 'bilateral relations' or otherwise; into entering unholy unions with a murderous nation such as Israel. We must continue to call for Apartheid Israel to surrender the land they now occupy by force, to the true heirs and rightful owners - the Palestinian people! 
  4. The Palestinian people, like any other people; have the right and duty to fight for the liberation of the land that has been stolen from them, and to do so by all means necessary! They are not terrorists as western capitalist media would want us to believe.  No; they are gallant freedom fighters! Their only crime is to assert their right to independence and self-determination, and to seek for a free red Palestine where they shall live in peace without the oppressive shadow of Israeli forces looming over, and ruling over their lives.
  5. Since 1947, and towards the 50's and 60's, when many European colonies in Africa and around the world were gaining their independence, part of Palestine was illegally declared Israel.  This immoral decision was given the sham stamp of approval by the U.S, Britain, the UN and capitalist allies.  They wanted a strategic territory and permanent military center they could control and use as a base for launching wars of aggression in the Oil rich middle-east. That is what Israel is to the United States, a military state armed and funded to secure its strategic position on oil assets in the middle-east!
  6. But the people of Palestine have since waged a heroic and relentless struggle to expel the Israeli occupying forces that have always had the financial, military and political backing of the United States and its capitalist allies. It must be noted that from inception, the war-mongering Zionist State of Israel never had, and now has no land of its own, anywhere on earth!  Israel is just the latest European/US sponsored settler colony, created from stolen land.  The land referred to as Israel today is in fact occupied Palestinian territory! The war-mongering and American backed Israeli regime has long waged a land-grabbing campaign under the pretext of protecting itself from the Palestinian resistance, whose organized resistance under the Palestinian Liberation Organisation - PLO, has won the sympathy and support of many people and progressive nations of the world. Independent African States in particular, have always been united, unanimous and unwavering in their call for Israel to end the killings and displacement of the Palestinian people, and grant Palestine freedom with Jerusalem as its Capital!
  7. Fast forward to today, December 2017, Israel under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his American war-mongering ally, Donald Trump, have purposely decided to further provoke and aggravate the tensions in Palestine and the middle-east, by legitimizing Israel’s position as a State in the middle-east and its capital as Jerusalem! This is a direct provocation which has thrown all efforts of reaching a peaceful resolution out the window. The pronouncements of Trump and Netanyahu must be treated with disdain, for they do not speak for the world, but for capitalist interests. Jerusalem has always been in Palestine. Israel was only fabricated and superimposed on the Palestinian people and their land in 1947 to serve capitalist interests in the middle-east.
  8. It is within this context that Israel must always be viewed globally, not as a victim of terrorist attacks, but rather, as an architect of terrorism itself. Israel is as an aggressor and perpetrator of innumerable atrocities on an innocent, unarmed and defenseless people who are only fighting for their existence and place under the sun. The Palestinian people are only armed with truth, sticks and stones; unlike the Israeli oppressive apparatus which is armed to the teeth with American made tanks, jet fighters, attack helicopters, missile batteries, and nuclear bombs!
  9. Therefore, in light of the above, and in honour of the common struggle for true freedom that we Africans continue to wage against global oppression in the form of Global empires like America and its capitalist lackeys, it is immoral and unjust for any right thinking African State that knows about the Israeli atrocities against the Palestinian people, to turn a blind eye to the suffering of our fellow brothers in arms, and to embrace the enemy that persecutes and oppresses them day and night. We must, and will continue to stand for a free Red Palestine, and the return of all exiles to their homeland!
  10. *Down with the Israeli occupation of Palestine!
    *Down with Israel-Africa Summit in Zambia!
    *Down with America's Support for Apartheid Israel!
    *All Africa for a free and liberated Red Palestine!
    *For the Palestinians right to nationhood and self-determination!
    *Abash Israeli Imperialism! Free Palestine now!

Zionist the US key fascist creation

US Imperialism depends on it's post-WWII fascistic Zionisr creation the peoples of the world must unite against the imperialist fascism.... Zionist Logic: Malcolm X on Zionism By Malcolm X Global Research, February 21, 2009 The Egyptian Gazette. Information Clearing House (2/20/2009) 17 September 1974 Theme: Religion In-depth Report: PALESTINE print 16 0 0 16 The Zionist armies that now occupy Palestine claim their ancient Jewish prophets predicted that in the “last days of this world” their own God would raise them up a “messiah” who would lead them to their promised land, and they would set up their own “divine” government in this newly-gained land, this “divine” government would enable them to “rule all other nations with a rod of iron.” If the Israeli Zionists believe their present occupation of Arab Palestine is the fulfillment of predictions made by their Jewish prophets, then they also religiously believe that Israel must fulfill its “divine” mission to rule all other nations with a rod of irons, which only means a different form of iron-like rule, more firmly entrenched even, than that of the former European Colonial Powers. These Israeli Zionists religiously believe their Jewish God has chosen them to replace the outdated European colonialism with a new form of colonialism, so well disguised that it will enable them to deceive the African masses into submitting willingly to their “divine” authority and guidance, without the African masses being aware that they are still colonized. CAMOUFLAGE The Israeli Zionists are convinced they have successfully camouflaged their new kind of colonialism. Their colonialism appears to be more “benevolent,” more “philanthropic,” a system with which they rule simply by getting their potential victims to accept their friendly offers of economic “aid,” and other tempting gifts, that they dangle in front of the newly-independent African nations, whose economies are experiencing great difficulties. During the 19th century, when the masses here in Africa were largely illiterate it was easy for European imperialists to rule them with “force and fear,” but in this present era of enlightenment the African masses are awakening, and it is impossible to hold them in check now with the antiquated methods of the 19th century. The imperialists, therefore, have been compelled to devise new methods. Since they can no longer force or frighten the masses into submission, they must devise modern methods that will enable them to manouevre the African masses into willing submission. The modern 20th century weapon of neo-imperialism is “dollarism.” The Zionists have mastered the science of dollarism: the ability to come posing as a friend and benefactor, bearing gifts and all other forms of economic aid and offers of technical assistance. Thus, the power and influence of Zionist Israel in many of the newly “independent” African nations has fast-become even more unshakeable than that of the 18th century European colonialists… and this new kind of Zionist colonialism differs only in form and method, but never in motive or objective. At the close of the 19th century when European imperialists wisely foresaw that the awakening masses of Africa would not submit to their old method of ruling through force and fears, these ever-scheming imperialists had to create a “new weapon,” and to find a “new base” for that weapon. DOLLARISM The number one weapon of 20th century imperialism is zionist dollarism, and one of the main bases for this weapon is Zionist Israel. The ever-scheming European imperialists wisely placed Israel where she could geographically divide the Arab world, infiltrate and sow the seed of dissension among African leaders and also divide the Africans against the Asians. Zionist Israel’s occupation of Arab Palestine has forced the Arab world to waste billions of precious dollars on armaments, making it impossible for these newly independent Arab nations to concentrate on strengthening the economies of their countries and elevate the living standard of their people. And the continued low standard of living in the Arab world has been skillfully used by the Zionist propagandists to make it appear to the Africans that the Arab leaders are not intellectually or technically qualified to lift the living standard of their people … thus, indirectly “enducing” Africans to turn away from the Arabs and towards the Israelis for teachers and technical assistance. “They cripple the bird’s wing, and then condemn it for not flying as fast as they.” The imperialists always make themselves look good, but it is only because they are competing against economically crippled newly independent countries whose economies are actually crippled by the Zionist-capitalist conspiracy. They can’t stand against fair competition, thus they dread Gamal Abdul Nasser’s call for African-Arab Unity under Socialism. MESSIAH? If the “religious” claim of the Zionists is true that they were to be led to the promised land by their messiah, and Israel’s present occupation of Arab Palestine is the fulfillment of that prophesy: where is their messiah whom their prophets said would get the credit for leading them there? It was Ralph Bunche who “negotiated” the Zionists into possession of Occupied Palestine! Is Ralph Bunche the messiah of Zionism? If Ralph Bunche is not their messiah, and their messsiah has not yet come, then what are they doing in Palestine ahead of their messiah? Did the Zionists have the legal or moral right to invade Arab Palestine, uproot its Arab citizens from their homes and seize all Arab property for themselves just based on the “religious” claim that their forefathers lived there thousands of years ago? Only a thousand years ago the Moors lived in Spain. Would this give the Moors of today the legal and moral right to invade the Iberian Peninsula, drive out its Spanish citizens, and then set up a new Moroccan nation … where Spain used to be, as the European zionists have done to our Arab brothers and sisters in Palestine?… In short the Zionist argument to justify Israel’s present occupation of Arab Palestine has no intelligent or legal basis in history … not even in their own religion. Where is their Messiah? The original source of this article is The Egyptian Gazette. Information Clearing House (2/20/2009) Copyright © Malcolm X, The Egyptian Gazette.
