One Hundred Days of Genocidal War and the Resilience of the Palestinian People and Resistance


Statement by the Revolutionary Socialists

On the hundredth day of the genocidal war against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, the occupation army continues its crimes, which have so far resulted in the martyrdom of nearly 24,000 people, the injury of more than 60,000, the internal displacement of 1.9 million Palestinians within the Strip, and the targeting of 150 health institutions.

One hundred days of criminal war supported by American weapons stockpiles and the complicity of regional regimes, which have limited themselves to empty denunciations. One hundred days in which the proud Palestinian people have demonstrated the most remarkable examples of resilience under impossible living conditions, refusing attempts at displacement amid the fiercest aerial bombardment the world has seen, even more, violent than the bombings of Dresden, Hamburg, and Tokyo at the end of World War II, considering the scale of destruction and the number of victims relative to the total population.
One hundred days bear witness to the heroism of the Palestinian resistance in shelling Zionist settlements and confronting the ground invasion, causing the enemy far greater losses than it had anticipated while still failing to destroy even half of the resistance tunnels. The enemy remains unable to eliminate the resistance’s military capabilities or recover its captives from the resistance’s hands.

The past hundred days have drawn a clear line between supporters of Palestine and its enemies, between the people of the world who have risen in unprecedented protests and strikes to support the Palestinian people from the first day of the war until now, and the major capitalist regimes that have remained unmoved except when their trade routes through Bab al-Mandab were threatened. Alongside these regimes are the arms companies profiting from killing and bloodshed and the social media companies that silence online supporters.

The hundred days have drawn a sharp line between supporters of humanity and opponents of racism and killing, like the descendants of Mandela in South Africa who have tasted the bitterness of apartheid and today accuse the Zionist entity before the International Court of Justice of committing genocide in Gaza, and those who align with Zionism in defense of its crimes.

The hundred days have dug a deep trench between the forces of resistance and the authoritarian regimes in the region. The Lebanese resistance hastened to engage the enemy and shell settlements and occupied cities in the north, while the Yemeni resistance quickly struck Israeli ships and prevented cargo ships from heading to the occupied territories via the Bab al-Mandab Strait. We unconditionally support this resistance, particularly the valiant Palestinian resistance.

The hundred days have also built a massive wall between the people of the region’s countries who stand in solidarity with Palestine and yearn for its liberation, and their governments, which prefer to maintain warm relations with the United States over boycotting the Zionist entity or even hinting at it to pressure it to stop its bloody massacres.

These regimes, especially the Egyptian regime, which submits to the orders of the Zionist entity by humiliatingly inspecting before allowing relief aid into the Gaza Strip, in addition to its long-standing blockade of the Strip, are complicit in Israeli crimes. The blood of Palestinians will haunt them as long as they remain in power.

The past hundred days have taught us, as the Palestinian people’s struggle has taught us for more than seven decades, that the Zionist entity cannot continue without the support of the United States, Britain, France, and other countries of killing and destruction. It cannot continue its crimes without the complicity of the ruling regimes in the region, whose overthrow is the path to the liberation of Palestine.
