Guerilla armed struggle alone won’t accomplish the goals of Palestinian liberation, says longtime Palestinian leftist Issam Aruri. Strikes, demonstrations, and an organized movement of millions are the key to ending Israeli occupation.
Issam Aruri is the commissioner general of the Independent Commission for Human Rights in Palestine. He is also the director general of the Jerusalem Legal Aid and Human Rights Center, and a founding member of the Palestinian NGO Network. Aruri is a longtime member of the Palestine Communist Party, now called the Palestinian People’s Party.
