The Palestinian Resistance In Their Own Words

Everyone has an opinion about Palestine and resistance, but not every opinion is based in the reality of the actual resistance. Between historical illiteracy and misleading media propaganda, the average person in the United States knows very little about Hamas, and therefore the actions which took place on October 7, for themself. Instead, we are force-fed a particular narrative, the only narrative, we are told is appropriate to share.

However, this a dangerous deception for Africans, who must be steadfast and clear in our analysis of geopolitics, especially as it relates to an oppressive force like Zionism, for which we must be committed to SMASHING.

Therefore, it is imperative that all peace loving Africans commit themselves to reading and studying the words of the Palestinian resistance. And we must adopt this practice in every part of the world. Below is an official narrative of October 7, in its original form, as shared by the forces involved. As you read, here are some key questions to ask yourself:

  1. Who benefits from this narrative being suppressed? [x]
  2. How does objective history support the narrative that I am reading? Are there trustworthy sources which negate that history? If so, who produced those sources and with what support? [x]
  3. Why do African people in positions of power all seem to talk about this issue in the same way? [x]
  4. Are there examples of resistance like this occurring in other places and times throughout history? If so, how were they received? [x]
  5. Why have African freedom fighters of the past so passionately defended the rights of the Palestinian resistance? [x]
  6. Who benefits from African people remaining neutral in the face of this? [x]
  7. How does this impact me? [x]
  8. What strategies and tactics were used in Palestine prior to October 7? Were they effective?
  9. What role did the events of October 7 play in elevating the cause of the Palestinian people into mainstream consciousness?
  10. Based on what you’ve read, what lessons can the worldwide African liberation struggle learn from the Palestinian resistance?

As you come up with answers to these questions, we’ve provided links to articles on the site that may challenge or strengthen your perception. Consider that it is 10x more powerful to read and discuss in community with others. Feel free to use these questions to spark conversation. We must be patient and daring in order to disrupt the flow of status quo conversation that exist in our world today. That task is made easier when we are informed.

“To educate the masses politically does not mean, cannot mean, making a political speech. What it means is to try, relentlessly and passionately, to teach the masses that everything depends on them; that if we stagnate it is their responsibility, and that if we go forward it is due to them too, that there is no such thing as a demiurge, that there is no famous man who will take the responsibility for everything, but that the demiurge is the people themselves and the magic hands are finally only the hands of the people.”
