Communist Party: Israeli attack on Syria unjustifiable Communist Party of Israel (CPI) on Sunday slammed Israeli military strikes on Syria earlier in the day. "We condemn the unjustifiable attack on the sovereignty of Syria," said the spokesperson calling on all parties in Syria to reach a political agreement to protect the rights of the Syrian people.
“The Netanyahu government proves that it hasn't learned from the historical experience that security cannot be borne of warfare. CPI and Hadash (Democratic Front for Peace and Equality) condemn the airstrikes and call for an immediate end to this escalation. CPI and Hadash warn against entanglement in a regional war,” he added.
According to CPI these aggressive measures constitute a danger to the entire region, and all of the peoples residing in it. With the excuse of preventing the use of chemical weapons the Israeli government is choosing to serve the foreign policy of the US imperialism in promoting its interests in the region. CPI vehemently objects to any use of non-
Shin Bet summons Left activists for "warning conversations" The Association for Civil Rights in Israel (ACRI) filed a petition on July 25 asking the High Court of Justice to order the General Security Service (Shin Bet) to stop its practice of summoning Left activists for "warning conversations." The petition includes testimonies of political and social activists who were called in over the past year for "warning conversations" with Shin Bet agents. The testimonies reveal how these conversations, which were not formal investigations on suspicion of specific crimes, were used to deter activists who pursue agendas outside the consensus. The conversations included personal questions about the citizens' political activities, relationships and finances. In some cases the agents raised general claims (but not specific allegations) about involvement in disturbances of the peace; in others, activists were told explicitly that while "for now" they were not suspected of violating the law, they should be careful not to do so in the future.
The petition w

Uprooting ("Transfer") Law Hits the Road The Prawer Plan – Expulsion of Tens of Thousands of Arab Palestinian Bedouins in Al Naqab (the Negev)
A Statement by the Communist Party of Israel
The Prawer Plan, which has been cooking for years, has passed its first reading in the Knesset in June 2013 and is about to be realized in the near future. As a Law, the Plan is going to confiscate 800,000 dunums of land in Al Naqab and expel over 50,000 Bedouins (who belong to the Arab Palestinian national minority within Israel) from their native land and residence. This inhumane plan will also lead to the demolition of 35 historic Arab villages that the governments of Israel continuously refuse to recognize, and will confine 30% of Arab Bedouins in Al Naqab to 1% of the land.
Apparently, the most horrible aspect of this law is that in order to receive any land compensation those new internally displaced people (IDPs) have to agree first to be removed from their homes, and to be re-located at a location chosen for them by the gover
