The recent Geneva Accords on the Middle East crisis have provoked a hysterical reaction on the part of Ariel Sharon who lashed out at the signatories of the Geneva initiative in a stormy start to the winter session of the Knesset on Monday of last week. Yossi Schwartz and Leon Cohen, in Israel, explain what lies behind this latest development.
In the last few months we have heard a lot about the Geneva plan that
supposedly represents a breakthrough in the "Peace process" in the
Middle East. In reality this plan reflects the growing contradictions between
the interests of European imperialism and American imperialism and its
"Road map". Moreover, the Geneva Accord is a simple sell out of the Palestinian people's
aspirations to be free and to live normal lives.
Yossi Schwartz continues his analysis of the origins of the Jews by looking at
the relationship between anti-Semitism and Zionism, as well as other nationalist
movements in the early half of the 20th century.
