Critiquing the critique of the Great March of Return

Posted on

Haidar Eid responds to Palestinian criticism of Gaza’s Great March of Return which says the protests have not been worth it: “these intellectuals’ assimilation of the (neo)liberal mentality, makes them look down upon the culture of resistance as useless, futile and hopeless. This defeatist ideology fails to appreciate people power or even to see that it exists. They are defeated because they want to fight the battle on Israel’s terms-through the adoption of an Israel-Hamas dichotomy, rather than apartheid Israel vs. the Palestinian people.”

Low birth weight and birth defects increased significantly since 2011 in Gaza. The evident cause is two military attacks in 2012 and 2014 that introduced novel risk factors, contamination by heavy metals weapon-remnants, ongoing impoverishment, and impaired waste management, says Reproductive Toxicology journal.
