Go to Coverage of UN Vote on Palestine and Special Issue #213 on Israel

This month, representatives of the Palestinian Authority (PA) are planning to call for a United Nations vote on resolutions that would recognize an independent state of Palestine. The U.S. has declared opposition to the resolutions, and is moving forcefully to prevent a UN vote. The Palestinians have been violently exiled from their homeland and subjected to repeated attempts to write their very national existence as a people and culture out of existence. For generations they have been penned in and confined in refugee camps, living under military occupation in the few territories that they managed at first to hold on to. For analysis of the fight over this UN resolution, and how it fits into the larger picture of the interests of Israel and the U.S. on the one hand, and those of justice and liberation on the other, see coverage at, coming soon, and the special issue of Revolution, “The Case of ISRAEL: Bastion of Enlightenment or Enforcer for Imperialism” at


After the Holocaust, the worst thing that has happened to Jewish people is the state of Israel.
