Io non sono Charlie ma soprattutto non sto con Salvini

10929923_10204859234794437_5357544460614851046_n A tre giorni dall’attentato di Parigi, su Charlie Hebdo si è detto quasi tutto. Dopo la condanna e il cordoglio si sono aperti voragini di dibattiti sulla natura della satira e i suoi limiti, sul rispetto e la solidarietà, sul terrorismo, sull’islamofobia. Si è parlato tanto del confine tra satira e offesa, si è ripercorsa la storia del Charlie per farne uscire elogi e critiche; il mondo dei social media si è spaccato in due fra chi ha sbandierato senza esitazione un fiero “Je suis Charlie” (alcuni pur senza averlo mai letto; altri per dovere, soprattutto nei paesi arabi, perché chi non ha la foto profilo nera è un islamista salafita, tutti gli altri come sempre per seguire la moda), e chi ha ribattuto con uno sfacciato “Je ne suis pas Charlie” (alcuni perché nonostante la condanna dell’attentato, non sono d’accordo con la linea editoriale del giornale; altri perché non vogliono sfilare al fianco dell’ipocrisia occidentale di lepenisti e sostenitori della gauche-chic di Hollande, tutti gli altri come sempre per fare i bastian contrari). Un paio, a mio parere i più saggi, hanno invece diffuso lo slogan creato dallo scrittore di origine libanese Dyab Abou Jahjah :“Je ne suis pas Charlie, Je suis Ahmed” – “Io non sono Charlie, sono Ahmed, il poliziotto ucciso. Charlie ridicolizzava la mia fede e sono morto difendendo il suo diritto di farlo”, mettendo così in luce la contrapposizione tra il terrorista islamico e la vittima musulmana. Ora, a mio parere, uccisi i presunti terroristi ed elaborato il lutto, condannato o redento che sia il Charlie Hebdo, è giunto il momento di volgere lo sguardo ad un secondo attentato scaturito dal primo: quello che si sta compiendo sui talk show, sui giornali e sui social media ad opera della destra radicale europea, che cavalca l’onda della paura e ne approfitta per aumentare le proprie schiere di pecore con il solito discorso islamofobo e razzista. In Francia Le Pen chiede la pena di morte e in Italia Salvini parla di “tentativo di occupare l’Europa” e si dedica alla composizione di rime baciate del tipo “con la coppia Renzi-Alfano, se la ride l’estremista musulmano”; lo si vede dappertutto in televisione e fa comizi a non finire in piazze gremite di gente. Secondo Cacciari, se le elezioni fossero domani la Lega e il Front National prenderebbero una valanga di voti. E’ evidente che questa strage è stata servita su un piatto d’argento ai partiti di estrema destra che se ne servono per alimentare la paura e la rabbia del popolo affamato di capri espiatori. Basti pensare che quando io e un’amica abbiamo provato a commentare un post di Salvini su Facebook, in meno di cinque minuti siamo state attaccate dai suoi migliaia di fan con dei calorosi “ammazzati”, “strangolati”e “vai ad offrirti come moglie ai combattenti Isis” (???). Un’aggressività contraddittoria se consideriamo che viene da parte di persone che in teoria si stanno pronunciando contro la violenza e in favore della libertà d’espressione. Persone che, non dimentichiamoci, prima o poi vanno a votare.

Vignetta di Carlos Latuff

Continuo. Questa mattina in un editoriale del Corriere della Sera Piero Ostellino ha scritto:

Le patetiche invocazioni al dialogo, alla reciproca comprensione che si elevano da ogni chiacchierata televisiva, da ogni articolo di giornale, sono figlie di un buonismo retorico, politicamente corretto, incapace di guardare alla «realtà effettuale» con onestà intellettuale. […] Che piaccia o no al buonismo, siamo diversi. È inutile nascondersi dietro il dito di un universalismo di facciata che non regge alla prova della logica e della storia. Siamo anche migliori, avendo noi conosciuto, e praticato da alcuni secoli — a differenza di loro che sono, e vogliono restare, una teocrazia — la separazione della religione dalla politica. Pur con tutti i nostri limiti, pratichiamo l’insegnamento dell’Illuminismo e siamo entrati da tempo nella Modernità, mentre loro ne sono ancora fuori e non danno neppure segno di volerci entrare. Viviamo in regimi che praticano la tolleranza nei confronti di chi non la pensa allo stesso nostro modo o professa una religione diversa dalla nostra; siamo società che, per dirla con Isaiah Berlin, professano e rispettano la «pluralità di valori». Chi non la pensa come noi, non è considerato e trattato come un nemico. Loro ci considerano «infedeli» rispetto alle loro convinzioni e alla loro prassi; un nemico da sterminare come hanno fatto nei confronti della redazione del settimanale satirico parigino il cui torto era di aver fatto dell’ironia sul loro credo. Per noi, gli islamici sono gente che la pensa in un modo diverso. Da figlio del Cristianesimo e del liberalismo mi chiedo come si possano uccidere uomini e donne in nome del proprio dio. Il criminale che torna sui suoi passi per finire un agente ferito e a terra è una bestia, con tutto il rispetto per gli animali. Le nostre reciproche culture sono inconciliabili ed è persino ridicolo auspicare che ci si possa incontrare almeno a metà strada. Dovremo convivere, sapendo che ci vorrebbero colonizzare e dominare attraverso quel «cavallo di Troia» che è l’immigrazione e che noi stessi incoraggiamo. Lo ripeto. Non siamo noi che dobbiamo riscoprire le nostre radici. Sono loro che devono rinunciare alle loro. Sempre che vogliano convivere pacificamente. Cosa di cui dubito.

Le assurdità di questo articolo traboccante di ignoranza sono troppe perché io le possa esporre una ad una,  eppure esso riflette una linea di pensiero che sta prendendo sempre più piede: quella dell’inevitabile scontro di civiltà tra l’Illuminismo occidentale e le barbarie medievali dell’Oriente islamico, a cui bisogna porre rimedio costruendo altissimi muri di cemento intorno alla nostra penisola di civiltà per lasciar fuori gli Islamici assetati di sangue infedele. Una ricerca del Pew Institute condotta a maggio di quest’anno rivela che l’Italia è il paese europeo più ostile ai Musulmani, con il 63% degli intervistati dichiaratasi contrari alla loro presenza. Ieri Giovanna Tedde, delegata alla Cultura e alle Politiche Giovanili della giunta di Bonrova, ha invitato gli Islamici “a morire tutti ammazzati”, augurandosi uno sterminio simile all’Olocausto per i Musulmani. In Veneto invece la più diplomatica Elena Donazzan, assessore all’Istuzione, ha inviato una circolare alle scuole chiedendo agli studenti musulmani e i loro genitori di condannare pubblicamente l’attentato di Parigi per distinguersi dai terroristi, “Perché se hanno deciso di venire a vivere in Europa, in Italia, in Veneto, devono sapere che sono accolti in una civiltà con principi e valori”. Lo stesso ha fatto Salvini, il quale ha ripetutamente chiesto ai Musulmani “moderati” di condannare l’accaduto, ribadendo che solo in nome di Maometto nel mondo si uccide. Ma quando gli è stato fatto notare che nell’estate del 2011 a Utoya, Breivik uccise 77 persone in nome della cristianità, non è stato in grado di rispondere. A nessun Cristiano in Europa è stato chiesto di condannare l’attentato di Breivik perchè il crimine è stato subito de-politicizzato e l’attentatore giudicato un malato mentale, mentre quando un Musulmano spara sono i bambini musulmani veneti a dover chiedere scusa. Questo mi fa pensare che le idee che abbiamo di “terrorismo” e di “responsabilità” siano alquanto relative al nostro ambiente culturale e per niente universali. Non abbiamo ad esempio condannato Israele di terrorismo per i 17 giornalisti uccisi quest’estate a Gaza. Allo stesso modo, quando nel 1994 Baruch Goldstein entrò nella moschea di Hebron e uccise 29 persone, si parlò di un fanatico ebreo, ma non venne chiesto a tutti gli Ebrei del mondo di condannare l’attentato e di dissociarsi da lui per non essere ritenuti terroristi. Credo che la parola terrorismo non sia nemmeno emersa. Ha detto bene Karim Metref nella lettera aperta intitolata “Io non mi dissocio”: “Loro creano mostri e poi, quando gli si rivoltano contro, noi dobbiamo chiedere scusa, dissociarci e farci piccoli”. Ebbene si, perché a creare questi mostri ha contribuito anche l’Europa che poi viene attaccata, e noi non possiamo continuare a vivere nell’illusione che nessuno vada a scavare nella storia per capire da dove viene questo terrorismo. In questi tre giorni, ogni testata e ogni programma TV ha replicato senza sosta gli stessi dati: chi erano gli assassini, chi hanno ucciso, dove, quando e con quali armi, ma nessuno ha mai menzionato il perché. Perché lo hanno fatto? Quali sono le cause profonde di questo terrorismo, al di là delle vignette satiriche? Se si vuole far qualcosa per fermare questa follia bisogna capire il contesto in cui si è creata. Diversi giornali hanno descritto l’attentato al Charlie Hebdo come “il più grande terrore che abbia mai conosciuto la Francia”, ma quando si prova a cercare “massacro di Parigi” su Google il primo risultato è un’altro: Ottobre 1961, quando la polizia uccise (ora è chiaro, nonostante il lunghissimo segreto di stato) 600 manifestanti che protestavano contro l’occupazione francese dell’Algeria. Li picchiarono a morte e li gettarono nella Senna. Il capo della polizia e supervisore della sicurezza pubblica responsabile dell’operazione di repressione era Maurice Papon, che 40 anni dopo fu condannato per crimini contro l’umanità sotto il regime fascista di Vichy.

“Qui anneghiamo gli Algerini”, graffiti lungo la Senna in ricordo del massacro del 1961

L’occupazione dell’Algeria durò 132 anni, più di un secolo in cui l’Algeria e il suo popolo vennero silenziosamente mutilati. I Francesi costruivano case e castelli per i coloni e convertivano le moschee in chiese. Eppure, nel 2005 il Parlamento francese votò una legge che impose alle scuole di insegnare il ruolo positivo del colonialismo in Africa. I due terroristi catturati ieri erano di origini algerine e uno di loro, Chérif Kouachi, era già stato in prigione per aver arruolato volontari francesi per combattere le truppe statunitensi in Iraq. Al tempo del processo aveva detto alla corte di essere stato spinto ad andare a combattere dalle immagini delle atrocità commesse dai soldati americani nella prigione di Abu Ghraib. A quanto pare, i fratelli Kouachi facevano parte di una branca di al-Qaida, da cui Said Kouachi era stato addestrato in Yemen. A questo proposito, in un’intervista riguardo alla strage di Parigi,  il politologo francese Gilbert Achcar ha fatto notare come i ruoli di vittima e carnefice in ambito di terrorismo non siano mai così distinti. L’Occidente e in particolare gli Stati Uniti non hanno mai rifiutato l’aiuto del Wahhabismo, l’Islam più radicale e fanatico e dottrina religiosa dell’Arabia Saudita, nella lotta all’occupazione sovietica dell’Afghanistan, e durante tutto il corso degli anni ’50, ’60 e ’70 sono stati gli Stati Uniti ad approfittare di gruppi ispirati all’Islam radicale per contrastare l’insorgere di qualsiasi movimento progressista e di sinistra nella regione del Medio Oriente. E poi, il ruolo dei servizi segreti statunitensi nell’addestramento e l’armamento di al-Qaida ve lo risparmio perché lo sapete già. Insomma, chi di spada ferisce di spada perisce. Ad ultimo, l’attentato al Charlie Hebdo è un’orrore che non ha giustificazioni, ma è bene che chi sta strumentalizzando questo fatto per la lotta all’Islam e agli immigrati sappia qual è il contesto storico, politico e sociale che ha favorito la nascita di una tale rabbia incontrollata, e che sia cosciente che la violenza produce solo altra violenza: così come le guerre in Iraq e Afghanistan, il sostegno ai crimini commessi in Palestina, le leggi razziste e la società ostile e islamofoba sono un’elemento chiave nella nascita del terrorismo, la nuova “Guerra al terrore” che ha appena invocato Hollande e che reclama anche Gasparri non farà altro che esacerbare i sentimenti di oppressione che hanno reso due giovani franco-algerini due killer, e che ne creeranno altri. Forse, mi permetto di dirlo, non ha aiutato neanche l’accanimento anti-islamico del Charlie Hebdo, che secondo molti da tempo aveva perso il suo originario carattere di brillante giornale di satira contro ogni forma di potere e si era ripiegato sulla ridicolizzazione estrema e cattiva non solo dei potenti ma anche dei credenti. Quel che è certo è che le invettive e le riforme antirazziste reclamate da Salvini e da Le Pen non serviranno a liberare l’Europa dal fondamentalismo islamico, semmai ne creeranno di più. Per questo, di fronte a questi nuovi attacchi razzisti all’Islam, agli immigrati all’intelligenza, crediamo che sia necessario agire per far si che la difesa dal terrorismo non si confonda con la repressione della libertà e della democrazia. Dobbiamo fare sentire la voce degli Italiani che si oppongono alla falsa logica dello “scontro di civiltà”, che non si lasciano dividere e sopraffare da quello che in realtà è uno “scontro fra barbarie” da cui ne usciamo tutti egualmente vittime. In un’Italia fragile dove chi grida più forte ha più seguaci, non possiamo permetterci il lusso di soprassedere all’insurrezione contro chi strumentalizza una tragedia per fomentare altro odio. Le idee xenofobe di Salvini non devono passare; non lasciamo che le parole di oggi diventino le pallottole del domani. Salvini, tu non parli per noi, te lo vogliamo dire forte e chiaro. E chi di voi è d’accordo, può farci un segno e mandarci una foto. Chissà che non riusciamo a convertirne qualcuno. #Salvininotinmyname (l’idea è di Andreea Diana Pop, potete mandare le vostre foto su Facebook a me o a lei ) 10904689_10205738165441879_307387427_n  10928712_10204759464939722_1073378198_n10904021_10205993356136475_840966914_n  10921718_1027016337315661_1096679183_n10906531_10204859234114420_5193305571158686656_n10906008_581446681987125_7028502613075015737_n  10929934_10204859236354476_2995146754519447337_n1505442_10205695596974036_1157043906017057091_n10899721_10206017264655648_1921098415_n10913585_10204976002071391_1902052317_n10926210_10205920309549796_3245572985850260631_n10922598_10204859232394377_6149863083896067898_n10492576_10204859232954391_148537197452163866_n    10928114_10152496634335974_1759850358_n  10929004_10204859233674409_5826983052961943189_n10899635_10203638252617918_1656600452_n10877728_10205982309976828_1176748167_n10921905_988325177862157_245795749_n10392410_10206099825803315_6464011010108793776_n10921931_10206003171021841_1806324139_n10921988_10204473350566719_273846072_n10866735_922066774471431_2050886983_n10928092_922305274447581_1054182748_n10928089_10205466890942107_2053713305_n

We are all Gazans

gaza-shejaiya-woman

In these last few days all I did was reading, not knowing what else I could do. I read reports from international journalists in Gaza; letters from desperate doctors, men and women; political analysis, interviews and floods of tweets and comments. I watched debates between supporters of both sides; TV news all equally fake and useless; videos of children in tears, of worldwide protests, of politicians talking without saying anything, of other politicians talking nonsense. I marched, yelled, waved my posters and debated to the point of exhaustion. Now, while Palestinians keep counting their victims and Israel gets ready for a long war, I stop for a moment to think about what I’ve learned about human nature, in the midst of this tragedy.

There’s a thousand things that I would like to talk about and that have been more or less discussed by many: first and foremost the war crimes committed by Israel (i.e. bombings of hospitals, ambulances and UN schools) which are evident and undeniable and which are slowly surfacing people’s conscience, despite the numerous efforts of the Zionist leadership to hide and deny them. I could rant for hours about the blatant silence of the world medias, which will pass into the annals of history for their incapability to conduct independent critical analysis, with ridiculous titles such as “Sharp rise in Gaza deaths: 13 Israeli soldiers, 70 others killed” , where the Baltimore Sun literally “otherizes” Palestinians. Or “Boys Drawn to Gaza Beach and Into Center of Mideast Strife”, a title chosen by the New York Times that I would rephrase as “Four boys killed by the Israeli Navy while playing football on the beach”. Or even “Missile at Beachside Gaza Cafe Finds Patrons Poised for World Cup.”, to which Palestinian journalist Ali Abunimah  promptly responded: “Israeli missile stops by Gaza cafe for a drink and dialogue with its Palestinian friends.”

I would continue with the virtuosity that Israel uses in turning the tables in its favor, making it look like the hundreds of victims of its strikes are puppets used by Hamas as human shields, the primitive rockets thrown from Gaza are life-threats for the helpless Israeli while the Israeli high-tech missiles are legitimate instruments of self-defense, the 166 children killed are collateral damage, and so on. Some of these apologies almost sound as jokes for their absurdity. I could then insult Obama for his persistence in supporting “Israel’s right to defend itself” while he fills his pockets with the revenues of the arms he sold to them. And I would continue railing against Europe’s tacit acquiescence, between Hollande who forbids demonstrations in France and Germany and Italy who sell to Israel submarines and fighter-bombers in abundance, maybe in the attempt of expiate their fascist sin financing more Fascism. (btw Italy is the greater EU exporter of military systems towards Israel). History teaches us that we are always ready to take part in a crime when it’s about taking profit from it, while we tend to shut up when it’s time to respond to the accusations; proof of it is that when the United Nations Human Right Council voted to form a commission of inquiry over Israel alleged war crimes in Gaza, Italy was among the 17 abstained, together with the rest of its coward European friends.

Finally, if I had to speak about psychology, I would discuss the reason why only a small percentage of the population goes down in the streets to protest against this ongoing massacre. Why the pictures that each and everyone of us see every day on TV – of men reduced to shreds, of decapitated children, of cities in ruins and of hundreds of thousands of displaced – are not enough to shake our indignation. Why we lost that sense of humanity that makes us all sons and daughters of the same womb, all inhabitants of the same earth; that should make us feel close, parts of a whole. That should devour our bowels and has been put to sleep instead. As if the TV glass screen made those people fake, movie characters with whom we sympathize but for whom we don’t feel the need to do do anything. Because their tragedy doesn’t touch us. I would say that we are unaware of our power, convinced that there have been many wars and many are yet to come, therefore it’s useless to protest for a lost cause, it’s better to shut up and perpetuate the condition of slavery in which we have decided to stay.

Aside all these inevitable and painful considerations, what I really wanted to talk about instead is an article written by Joan Smith entitled “In modern warfare, it’s the civilians who suffer most of all”. In it she writes:

Modern forms of warfare are waged relentlessly against non-combatants. Just over a century ago, the ratio of military to civilian casualties was eight to one. By the 1990s, that figure had reversed. Think of a modern conflict – Iraq, Syria, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Kosovo – and the pictures that come to mind are endless columns of refugees and the debris-strewn bodies of women and children. Spreading fear in civilian populations is a key element of modern warfare.

The civil dimension of the massacre in Gaza is its most important and most horrible feature. Whether you are Jewish or Muslim, Israeli or American, Democrat or Republican, it is unacceptable to overlook the fact that entire families have been wiped out, that children are dying with alleged terrorists. The civilians of Gaza cannot be made to pay the price for a crime they never committed.

The danger, when so many civilians die, is that it starts to seem inevitable. A painting of Andy Warhol comes into my mind, where the same scene of a deadly car crash is repeated fourteen times, always in a bright orange that covers all other colors, until the public doesn’t perceive the violence in it anymore. It doesn’t see death. It got used to it. Just as we got used to be afraid of terrorist attacks in the metro, to hear about planes diverted or shot down by rebel militias, to see death everywhere with unnatural naturalness. In this conflict like in many others around the world, regardless of who’s right and who’s wrong, regardless of who starts the attacks and who breaks the ceasefire, apart from the dirty political games, the treaties and the alliances, the civilians are the ones dying. It’s the mothers, the teachers, the construction workers, the six-months old children and those who are still in their mother’s womb, the university students, the young boyfriends and girlfriends, the doctors, the waitresses. the 99%. Us.

Now I suggest we do an exercise, a terrible and nevertheless necessary one in order not to let our conscience die. This is the list of the names of the 930 victims and their ages, updated to the date of today by the Gaza Minister of Health. They are strange names, that the majority of us cannot pronounce. We can read a couple of them, not more. The list is too long. And yet these people were all real: they had careers, houses, computers, hobbies, problems and projects. We cannot let them become numbers.

Let’s fake that these are the names of our friends then; the names of our neighbors, of our brothers and sisters, children and parents: George, 4, Manchester. François, 22, Lyon. Irene, 16, Madrid. Michael, 25, Berlin. Rebekah, 61, New York. Carlotta, 30, Firenze.

Maybe in this way our crushed humanity will be awaken, maybe we will realize what it means to lose a part of ourselves; and even if it won’t help to stop this massacre, maybe it will help us to understand something more of who we are, of the place were we live, of what we can do, and maybe it will help to stop future massacres, when the world-leaders will be our children.

Gaza siamo tutti noi

gaza-israel-exodus_2989517k

In questi ultimi giorni non ho fatto altro che leggere, senza sapere cos’altro fare. Ho letto reportage di giornalisti internazionali a Gaza, lettere di medici, di donne e di uomini disperati, analisi politiche, valanghe di tweet e di commenti. Ho guardato dibattiti tra sostenitori delle due parti,  telegiornali tutti ugualmente falsi ed inutili, video di bambini in lacrime, di proteste in tutto il mondo, di politici che non dicono niente, di altri politici che dicono idiozie. Ho marciato, gridato, sventolato cartelloni e discusso fino allo sfinimento. Ora, approfittando delle 12 ore di tregua concordate tra Israele e Hamas, mi fermo a tirare le somme di quello che ho imparato sulla natura umana, nel mezzo di questa tragedia.

Ci sono mille cose di cui si potrebbe parlare, e di cui tutti hanno più o meno parlato: in primis i crimini di guerra commessi da Israele, evidenti ed innegabili (come bombardare gli ospedali, le ambulanze in corsa o le scuole dell’ONU), che sebbene il governo sionista si stia impegnando con tutte le forze a nascondere e negare, stanno salendo alla superficie delle coscienze dei popoli e dei governi. Si potrebbe sbraitare per ore del clamoroso silenzio consenso dei media mondiali, che passerà alla storia con titoli di copertina quali “Drastico aumento delle vittime a Gaza: 13 soldati israeliani, 70 altri”, in cui gli “altri” ovviamente sono Palestinesi, le cui vite non meritano nemmeno di essere definite. Oppure “Ragazzi attirati sulla spiaggia di Gaza e al centro del conflitto mediorientale”, in cui si parla, in caso non lo aveste capito, dei quattro ragazzo uccisi da un missile mentre giocavano a calcio sulla spiaggia.  O ancora l’eclatante titolo del New York Times: “Missile lanciato su un caffè del lungomare di Gaza trova i proprietari pronti per guardare i Mondiali”, a cui il giornalista palestinese Ali Abunimah ha sapientemente risposto: “Missile israeliano si ferma in un caffè di Gaza e fa due chiacchiere con i suoi amici palestinesi”. Si potrebbe parlare della maestria con cui Israele rigira le frittate, di modo che tutte le vittime dei loro missili sono burattini messi lì da Hamas che li usa come scudi umani, i razzi di cartapesta sparati da Gaza diventano minacce di morte e distruzione mentre i missili israeliani sono solo armi di difesa, i più di 140 bambini uccisi sono danni collaterali…Sembra quasi che Israele racconti barzellette, tanto sono assurde. Si potrebbe gridare per ore contro Obama che continua a sostenere “il diritto di Israele a difendersi” mentre si ingrassa con i ricavati delle armi che gli ha venduto. Si potrebbe anche discutere dell’impassibilità dell’Europa, tra un Hollande che vieta le manifestazioni e una Germania e un’Italia che vendono ad Israele sottomarini e cacciabombardieri a profusione, forse nel tentativo di espiare i loro crimini fascisti finanziando altro fascismo. (PS: l’Italia è il maggiore esportatore dell’Unione europea di sistemi militari e di armi leggere verso Israele). La nostra storia ci insegna che dove c’è da delinquere noi ci siamo sempre volentieri, per poi stare zitti quando saltano fuori le accuse; tant’è che quando al Consiglio per i Diritti Umani delle Nazioni Unite si è votato per aprire un’inchiesta sui possibili crimini di guerra israeliani, tra i 17  astenuti c’era anche l’Italia, insieme a tutta la compagnia dei codardi europei. Se poi si volesse parlare di psicologia, si potrebbe discutere del perché in piazza scenda solo una minima parte della popolazione, anche se è vero che i numeri stanno crescendo. Del perché le foto che ognuno di noi vede ogni sera al telegiornale delle otto – di uomini ridotti a brandelli, di bambini decapitati, di città in macerie e di centinaia di migliaia di sfollati – non siano abbastanza per smuovere la nostra indignazione. Del perché abbiamo perso quel senso di umanità che ci rende tutti figli dello stesso grembo, tutti abitanti della stessa terra, che dovrebbe farci sentire vicini, parti di un tutto. Che dovrebbe roderci le viscere e che invece è stato anestetizzato. Come se il vetro della televisione rendesse quelle persone finte, personaggi di film, con cui simpatizziamo ma per cui non ci sentiamo in dovere di fare nulla. Perché la loro è una tragedia che non ci tocca. Siamo tutti inconsapevoli del nostro potere, convinti che di guerre ce ne sono sempre state e che sempre ce ne saranno e quindi è inutile protestare per una causa persa, meglio stare zitti e perpetuare la condizione di schiavitù in cui abbiamo deciso di restare.

Quello su cui sto riflettendo io adesso, invece, è un articolo di Joan Smith apparso su Internazionale, intitolato “Guerre contro i civili”, in cui l’autrice scrive:

Le forme moderne di guerra si combattono implacabilmente contro i civili. Poco più di un secolo fa, la proporzione tra le vittime militari e civili era di otto a uno. Negli anni Novanta le cifre si sono capovolte. Se pensiamo a un qualsiasi conflitto moderno – Iraq, Siria, Sierra Leone, Bosnia, Kosovo – le immagini che vengono in mente sono le colonne infinite di rifugiati e i cadaveri di donne e bambini ricoperti di macerie. Diffondere la paura tra i civili è un elemento fondamentale delle guerre moderne.

Il pericolo, quando muoiono così tanti civili, è che inizia a sembrare un fatto inevitabile. Mi viene in mente un quadro di Andy Warhol in cui la stessa scena di un incidente d’auto mortale viene ripetuta uguale una ventina di volte, sempre di un arancio acceso che copre tutti i colori, finché il pubblico non ne percepisce più la violenza, non ci vede più la morte. Si è abituato. Come ci siamo abituati noi ad avere paura degli attacchi terroristici in metropolitana, a sentire di aerei civili dirottati da milizie ribelli, a vedere la morte ovunque con naturale innaturalezza. A prescindere da chi ha torto e chi ha ragione, a prescindere dagli sporchi giochi politici, a prescindere da chi rompe le tregue e chi inizia gli attacchi, chi muore sono i civili. Sono le mamme, i maestri, gli spazzini, i bambini di sei mesi, gli studenti universitari, i medici e le cameriere. Il 99%. Noi.

Vi propongo allora un esercizio, un esercizio terribile e pertanto necessario per non lasciare la nostra coscienza morire. Questa è la lista dei nomi delle 858 vittime palestinesi e della loro età, aggiornata ad oggi dal Ministero della Salute palestinese. Sono nomi strani, che la maggior parte di noi non riesce a pronunciare. Ne leggiamo un paio, tre al massimo. La lista è troppo lunga.

Allora facciamo finta che questi siano i nomi dei nostri amici, dei nostri vicini di casa, dei nostri genitori, figli e fratelli. Matteo, 15, Milano. Giulia, 53, Bologna. Chiara, 20, Torino. Roberto, 19, Palermo. Veronica, 32, Trento.

Magari così la nostra umanità schiacciata e addormentata si risveglierà. E se anche non servirà per fermare questo massacro, magari ci aiuterà a capire qualcosa in più su chi siamo, sul mondo in cui viviamo, su cosa possiamo fare, e chissà che non aiuterà a fermare dei massacri futuri, quando a governare il mondo ci saranno i nostri figli.

Life in a Ghost Town

Visiting Hebron for a group of young Europeans is an unbelievable experience in the very sense of the word: it is hard to believe what is in front of your eyes, hard to believe that something like Hebron can even exist; yet it does, and this post is about what I saw there.

The bad habit of dividing cities in two.

Hebron, which paradoxically in Arabic is al-Khalil (the friend), is the largest city of the West Bank, home to approximately 250,000 Palestinians and the main economic hub of the region. It’s chaotic and rowdy, its streets filled with cars and trucks, women loaded with dozens of shopping bags, kids running to school and men pushing wooden carts overflowing with lemons and all kinds of vegetables, yelling to attract costumers and carelessly blocking the traffic. At first sight, just the ordinary crazy middle-eastern city; but as we approach the entrance of the old city everything gets worryingly quiet and – like in a creepy fantasy movie- you know that something bad is about to happen. Down the street there’s a checkpoint: a checkpoint in the middle of the city? Yes, get used to it because Hebron is no ordinary city: it’s two city in one, or, better said, it’s a partially occupied cityIMG_7040

Hebron is a holy place for both Muslims and Jews: it holds the Cave of the Patriarchs, which according to the Bible and the Quran was built by Abraham and contains the tombs of the patriarchs and the matriarchs of the Jewish people: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Rebekah, Sarah and Leah. This explains the attachment of the Jewish people to this city and probably also the messianic fervour that guides the most extremists to settle here, in a land that doesn’t belong to them but that they desperately want. In 1998, following an agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Liberation Organization, Hebron was divided into two sections. H1, about 80% of the city, was given to the control of the Palestinian Authority, while Israel maintained control over H2, which contained significant parts of the commercial centre as well as the Israeli settlements. Today in H2 live about 35,000 Palestinians and 700-800 Israeli settlers.

I won’t indulge in talking politics and history because I’m neither a politician nor an historian; all I want to talk about is the everyday life I experienced in this crazy reality where nothing, nothing is normal.

The Ghost Town

After going through the checkpoint that divides H1 from H2 we enter in Shuhada street: Abdallah, our friend and guide, says with a grin “Welcome to the Ghost Town”. IMG_7053The view of the empty street is eerie: in 2002 all shops were closed “for security reasons” and Palestinian movement of any kind was essentially forbidden, turning the central thoroughfares into a desolated string of closed doors. The sadness is overwhelming: in large sections of H2 Palestinians cannot drive cars and every movement is controlled by the Israeli soldiers who get to decide who comes in and who doesn’t. This means that even ambulances need to ask for permission to enter the area: “A while ago a pregnant woman from the Abu Eishea family was stopped at this checkpoint and she wasn’t allowed to go to the hospital”, Abdallah tells us. “She gave birth at the checkpoint with only two ambulance operators helping her from the other side and only after the childbirth she was allowed to be carried to the hospital”.

We walk up the street to reach the settlement in the area called Tel Rumeda; we enter it while our Palestinian friends wait for us outside, under the vigilant eye of a soldier. There’s a small military base inside with soldiers walking around. I take a picture and with a friend I approach one of them: he’s a clumsy kid, pale and skinny but with a huge gun in his hands. He tells us he’s 19. “Must be boring to sit here all day long huh?” my friend says. He seems to have no clue of what he’s doing there, the contrast between his innocent face and that gun is impressive.

After Tel Rumeda we climb up the hill to reach its top, from where we can see all the city. Obviously enough all the control towers and the military bases are on the summits of the surrounding hills, in crucial positions from where it’s possible to scan every centimetre of the city. All the Palestinian houses at the same height have been demolished and all the tallest buildings have been closed down. It feels incredibly oppressing. Omar, another Palestinian friends, tells us how during the Second Intifada every night soldiers were shooting from this point to the Palestinian houses. Every night Hebronese families would hide in the bathroom, the safest part of the house because the less exposed, waiting for the shooting to end. On top of this there were frequent curfews during which Palestinians were not allowed to go out, not even for groceries. “The longest one was of 40 days”, Omar says. “We had to cross the fields and avoid all main streets to go buy something to eat”.

IMG_8779Violence, violence, violence.

Down the hill, in the heart of the old city, the open market quietly discloses a bit of life. The roof of the market is a net covered with trash thrown by the settlers who live in the houses above. We stop at every door because in every building there’s a family with a story to tell. Abdallah starts telling the story of the Sedeer family with growing anger in his voice, as we approach an old house which confines with the settlement:

Abed Al Rahman and his brother Shad in this house for 15 years and heir family has been living here for eight generations. In 2002, 300 settlers attacked their house, broke all the doors and threw the water tanks from the roof. Since then they’ve been continuously attacking their family, trying to force them to leave. In 2005, as Abed’s wife was to the roof checking the water tanks one of the settlers from Tal Rumeda shot her 5 bullets. She was pregnant.  She was transferred to the hospital and the doctors managed to save her child, but she died. Four years later, their kid went out to buy sweets and a settler threw a chemical water on him from the roof, hitting his eyes and making him blind.

The Israeli army continues failing to prevent these attacks and despite the frequent aggressions it doesn’t intervene and it tacitly allows the settlers to perpetuate their violent actions.

Propaganda for everybody!

IMG_7090Walking in the old city one feels like in an open-air museum of horrors: the walls seep grief and hatred, a hatred so thick and tangible to be perceivable in the air. These walls have turned into canvases scribbled with accusation and insults from both sides, leaving very little space to messages of hope and peace. What strike the most however are the Israeli propaganda posters attached everywhere: “This land was stolen by Arabs. We demand justice! Return our property to us!” recites one poster. Another one quotes the Bible : “1967, Liberation of Hebron and re-establishment of the Jewish community. ‘The children have returned to their own border’ (Jer 31:17)“. IMG_7196Many other “explanatory” signs are scattered around the main streets for unaware tourists to read: “After signing the Hebron Accords in 1997, Hebron was divided, leaving Jews the access to 3% of the city”. Too bad it doesn’t say that H2 actually constitutes 20% of Hebron, that Palestinians are not allowed to walk freely or to enter the Cave of the Patriarchs while settlers are escorted by dozen of soldiers and can even enter the mosque; too bad it doesn’t say that there are cameras on every rooftop to control every movement of every citizen, but when a settler hits a Palestinian those cameras magically turn on the other side. Too bad it doesn’t talk about the crazy settlers who try to run you over with their car as you walk in “their land”. I guess the sign is just too small for all this information.

As we walk on one side of the road, on the other side we cross a group of American Jews on a guided tour in the holy city. I then learn that young Jews all over the world are given the opportunity to participate to the Birthright, or Taglit: a free trip to Israel, to visit the land of their ancestors. I wonder what their tour guide is telling them: probably a very different story from the one Abdallah is telling us. In that very moment the paradox of the whole situation overwhelms me: I realize that some of them may think the same thing: they probably think that Abdallah is lying to us, while to me it seems as they have been distributed sunglasses to protect them from the truth and shields against reality; they have probably even been told that hummus is the traditional Israeli food and that the keffiyeh is a traditional scarf for Jewish weddings (as a settler told one of my friends outside a Palestinian shop). The ugliness of manipulation of history reveals itself to me with all its frightening power.

Is anyone up for some more Apartheid?

IMG_7215To take a break from our tour we stop at Munir’s shop in Shuhada street; a small room packed with colourful hand-made pottery, embroidery and old postcards. Munir offers us coffee and tea and then tells us how hard it is for him to carry on his business: Shuhada street used to be the trade centre of the city, but after its closure it is only visited by occasional tourists. He shows us pictures of the street in the ’90, portraits of an unrecognisable hustle. He has hundreds of anecdotes about his troubled everyday life: “One day I found the car of a settler parked in front of my shop, in a way that I couldn’t get in”. I waited for him to come back and asked him the reason of his behaviour. “I went to pray in the Synagogue”, he said. “Did God tell you to block my entrance?”, Munir asked. The settler stood silent and then left. “I have my ways to deal with them”, Munir adds.

The Ibrahim mosque is in front of his shop, patrolled by several soldiers, and the street who runs beside it is divided in two by a tall grid. Palestinians on one side, Israeli and foreigners on the other. What is this if not apartheid? Ah yes, I forgot: “Security reasons”.

IMG_7183The part of the city behind the mosque is a pile of debris, a display of the destruction left by the bombings of the Second Intifada. Behind the hill more settlements stand out in the landscape with their perfect red rooftops and their barbed wired walls, so purpose-made different from the surroundings, so arrogant and invasive, careless of the fact that they are all illegal according to International  law.

We leave Hebron unsure of what we experienced, full of anger and dismay. After seeing life here, any justification for Israel’s  behaviour and policies towards Palestinians in Hebron is simply unacceptable. Don’t these people deserve to live a normal life? Don’t these kids deserve to play something different from “kill the Jews?”. And don’t these Israeli soldiers deserve to spend their best years having fun, travelling and seeing the world, instead of playing with their guns and discharging their boredom on the first unfortunate Palestinian passing by? IMG_7173

After a week spent in this beautiful and sad city, without being an historian nor a politician of one thing I am more than certain: Hebron must be freed.

The Caveman

Among the steep hills between Bethlehem and Jerusalem, in the shadow of settlements on both sides and with a view on the Holy City there’s a small shack built of wood and metal sheets, surrounded by olive trees and a flowery garden: a little spot of paradise among destruction and occupation. The man who lives there is a shining example of resistance: his name is Abed, the Caveman. IMG_7417 Abdel Fattah Abed Rabbo is a 48 years-old man who decided not to give up his land and to stay. The Israeli government has already bought all the surrounding land but insists on its decision to acquire his five hectares of stony hillside. The purpose, Abed says, is obviously a new settlement which would become the biggest in the Jerusalem area.

Abed welcomes us in his “living-room”: an open space filled with flower pots and rickety couches, closed by curtains and decorated with paintings made by his supporters. A radio transistor dangling from the ceiling on a string buzzes in the background. He serves us a smoky herbal tea made with herbs from his garden, let us get comfortable and watches us while we get accostumed to this strange place. Then he starts telling, with the tone and the pace of a story that he has told a million times.

“This land belongs to my family since the time of the Ottoman empire: I have papers proving it from the Ottomans, from Jordan and even from the Israeli Government”. Shortly after 1948 and the birth of the state of Israel Abed’s mother had the presence of mind to register the land to the Israeli authority, while they were chased from their village and became refugees. Today Abed’s family, including his wife and his children live in Desheisheh refugee camp, but he prefers living in the nature. He’s been living here for twenty years now. “This is the only way I have to keep the land, but someone must always be here. I take turns with my son and I absent myself for maximum twenty minutes to go to the shop. I live waiting for the day that they’ll prevent me to come home”.

Many offers have been made to him so far, up to 50 million dollars. The last one was from Rami Levy, one of the biggest Israeli businessmen: he wanted to buy the place to build a wedding hall and promised Abed to return it to him in 5 years. When the American ambassador in Israel visited Abed he asked him: “What is that you want?”. His brillian answer was: “I want Obama to come here and have a cup of coffee with me“.

This is the truth: despite international law declared them illegal Israeli settlements keep popping up like mushrooms in all the strategic points of the West Bank and especially on the borders: the land-grabs are continuous and Palestinians almost never have a choice but to sell. Settlements are the most effective way to control what is left of the Palestinian territories; they are part of a well organized system made up of checkpoints, bypass roads, control of water and electricity and a series of legal loopholes that allow them to keep occupying Palestinian land. Abed’s obstinacy and courage are therefore his only weapons against this infernal machine.

However, his enemy doesn’t give up; the Israeli government already brought him to court several times with various pretexts: they claim that the shed is illegally built, just as the bathroom, the path, the doves’ house…Many international NGO’s helped him face these trials providing him lawyers and financial support, but there seems to be always a new reason to try to break him down and not all the strategies used to persuade him are legal: with a grim on his face Abed tells us how one day he came to the house and fed water to his doves. Immediately after the birds started to fall and die, making him realize that the water was poisoned.

In our two-days work at Abed’s land we planted trees along his path and helped him keep his land clean. When we left he had tears in his eyes: we hugged him and promised to come back; leaving that little endangered paradise behind our backs we hoped that all of our work won’t be destroyed to make space for more injustice. During all this time Abed became quite famous: many local, Israeli and international newspaper wrote articles on this serious and strong caveman who peacefully resists the occupation. Will the media attention be enough to save his cave? As Abed told us while calmly sipping his tea: “You see that olive tree outside my house? He’s very old but also incredibly strong. I’m just like him: I resist”IMG_8048

“Youth and Checkpoints in Palestine” by Abdallah Maraka

This is an article written by my friend Abdallah Maraka, a university student and a tourist guide in Hebron.

Palestine, a state in the Middle East, recently became the core of conflicts not just in the Middle East but in the world. Over the last forty years of  Israeli occupation of the Palestinian land, Israel implemented a policy of movement restrictions including checkpoints, earth mounds, trenches, gates, road blocks, bypass roads, the wall, and a complex system of permits.

I’m not going to write now about the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis, but I would like to write about the youth in Palestine. The youth who represent approximately eighty percent of the population in Palestine. The youth who are living under occupation and who, for the major part, grew up under the occupation, the Palestinian youth who are dreaming about freedom every day in their life like any other young people in the world.

There are a lot of restrictions that youth face in Palestine. but I would like to focus on one type of restrictions which are the checkpoints, yes the checkpoints, which are like ghosts haunting them, because they are to be found any time inside a city, between cities or even at random, mobile locations, appearing and disappearing overnight. Internal checkpoints are located in many areas inside the cities, local inhabitants know them very well because they must pass through these kinds of checkpoints every day. When they go to school, or to work not only do they have to pass them, but they also have to go through a whole branch of dehumanizing and racist procedures.

The checkpoint we went through in Hebron, between H1 (the part of the city under Palestinian control) and H2 (the part under Israeli control)

As you pass a turnstile gate, the soldier who controls this gate can close it any time he wants depending on his mood. When you are passing this gate you should not be carrying any metal items, electronic devices, and coins. And the soldier should scan these things for security reasons. Sometimes you need to take off your clothes if the soldier wants, regardless of the weather on that day. Even the Palestinian girls are sometimes forced to take off their cover without any consideration of the fact that they are humans and have rights. This is a small part of the procedures happening in the checkpoints that all young people face every day when they are moving from a place to another within the same city.

Now let’s talk a little bit about the mobile checkpoints. You cannot predict when and where you will face this kind of checkpoints, as they appear suddenly. For example, if you are going to visit your relatives and you are faced with a mobile checkpoint, you will not be surprised if they stop and ask for your ID without any reason. And if you have the courage to ask the soldier the reason for this inspection, the answer will depend on the soldier’s mood but the expected answer will be: “for security reasons” with a silly smile on the soldier’s face. Is this a really convincing answer?!

I live in a city called Hebron in the south in Palestine and if I want to see my friends living in other cities in the West bank, for example, visit someone in Ramallah (which is located in the middle of the West bank) I will probably have to pass through seven checkpoints without counting the mobile checkpoints. Going to Ramallah takes normally between 40 to 50 minutes without the checkpoints, but now, it takes more than an hour and a half. The most famous checkpoint on this road is called (Al-Conteener checkpoint) which is a source of continued suffering and ordeal for Palestinians especially for the youth.

Finally, I have only one thing to say to the whole world: as a Palestinian, I cannot accept this awful situation that the Israeli occupation forces us to be in. Freedom is our goal here in Palestine, it is not just a dream. Our rights will finally be respected one day and  we will be free from all the checkpoints and other occupation restrictions.

Refugee in your own country

In the last few days I’ve seen so many things that it’s hard for me to decide where to start from: I left home thinking that I already knew everything about Palestine and the conflict only to come here and realize that what Palestians have to face every day cannot be described with words. The more I know the more I feel powerless and yet I am conscious that I want knowledge; that I need it to keep my humanity complete, that only if I keep my eyes open I can say to be alive.

On one of the outside walls of Aida refugee camp someone wrote “Humans wake up!” IMG_7605We pass by and take pictures, then we go home and we share them thinking that we can do something about it, that we can show them and talk about them and raise awareness, but do we really wake up from our comfortable torpor? Walking in the narrow muddy alleys of this refugee camp I had the impression of living a bad dream. The reality I’ve been living in clashed with the one I saw there, as if that was not a real life situation but an artificial village, a simulation of life. Truth is, that was the reality and I had just been sleeping all my life. Waking up to reality is extremely unpleasant and irritating because it takes its share of humiliation and the admission that we’ve been wrong all along. Waking up hurts, but it is necessary to deserve living.

At a first glance, Aida refugee camp seems a quite decent place to live. A Palestinian friend tells me “Do not deceive yourself, this is a five-star camp”. Still it feels odd to enter in it by a huge door topped by an enormous key and a graffiti saying “We will return”, as if you were entering a parallel world cut out from reality.

This refugee camp was built in 1950 by the UN to host the people fleeing from 17 demolished villages of the northwestern area of Jerusalem, during the 1948 war. It was initially made up by 94 green, fabric tents tents and hosted 1,125 refugees, with the promise that they would have shortly returned to their houses. In 1956, UNRWA replaced these tents with cinder block housing units, each with one or two rooms measuring just 9×12 meters. New rooms started to appear on top of each other like sand-castles and the camp became a city in the city, with its shops and its schools.  Although the camp’s population continued to grow, its area didn’t and the current population is over 4,700 refugees living in 277 housing units: the result is a huge fake doll-house effect, an overcrowded labyrinth that gives the feeling to be trapped inside it. Nobody ever returned, because their houses do not exhist anymore. IMG_7295

In the Aida Youth Center we met Habashi and Karim, two activists who have grown up in Aida and who work in this center for the kids of the camp organizing various activities, sports and trainings. They took us on a tour and showed us the buildings: many have bullet holes in the walls, a mark left by the frequent gunfire and the strikes and invasions operated by the Israeli army during the first and the second Intifada. The tallest building of the camp is a school with no windows. “You want to know why there’s no windows?” Habashi asked. “In 2002, 20 kids were wounded by a bomb thrown by the soldiers, so they had to brick up all the windows”.

IMG_7495

While I watch little boys running around and hiding behind the corners I ask myself: how is it like to be afraid to go to school? To be afraid of playing soccer in the streets because a random gasbomb can be thrown at any time? To grow up playing at throwing rocks at the soldiers? Psychologically speaking it is devastating: in Gaza, a place where kids are 40% of the total population, the vast majority of the kids have been diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Only here you can find kids who try to commit suicide, kids who have no desire to live anymore. As Habashi guides us in the maze of streets and stairs he tells us how he used to live in one room with 17 people, and they used to take turns to sleep. He was put in prison when he was 18 with his 15 years-old brother. Why? “You are terrorists” was the answer. I never thought a kid could be a terrorist, never thought a kid could be jailed for throwing stones at the soldiers who stole him his childhood.

All refugees kept the key of their houses, and all of them have an ID who identifies them as refugees, the only paper they have to proove that they have the right to return. There are 85 refugee camps for Palestinians in the West Bank, Gaza, East Jerusalem, Syria and Lebanon, and 5 million people holding their refugee ID. None of them did anything to deserve it and yet only the walls here are screaming to this injustice: poems and paintings of colorful lands filled with olive trees, forgotten landscapes of the old destroyed villages. “Here only the birds and the butterflies are free”, says the wall. The people don’t say anything anymore, but on their chest they hold on to their key.
