Reuven Abarjel, discusses Zionism, Racism, and Colonialism

As part of a week of international conference of Anti-Zionist Jews Organized by the IJSN, Reuven Abarjel, a Mizrahi Anti-Zionist Jew, visited the Bay-Area. Reoven is one of the founders of the Israeli Black Panthers, an anti-Zionist, and a social activist. Abarjel participated in several meetings and panels and spoke about Zionism, racism, and colonialism and ways to resist them. Abarjel also discussed the oppression of Mizrahim in Israel and his vision of a united struggle against Zionism and Colonialism composed of Mizrahim and Palestinians and the need to educate the next generation of youth in Israel to become active in global solidarity work.
Abarjel was also interviewed on local radio programs. In a response to a question on Flashpoints about the claim by Zionists that critics of Israel are Anti-Semitic, Reoven replied “it is just a way for them to sell lies, to try to protect themselves from the horrific crimes that they commit”. Abarjel also added “I’m asking people in the world, how can you accept this occupation? If this was to happen in your country, your homes, you would not sleep. Wake up and stop it, or it will get to your homes”. Reuven Abarjel also spoke about his personal experience as one of the Ringworm Children, a group of thousands of kids from Jewish-Arab background that the state of Israel did radioactive experiences on without their knowledge or family consent. The experiences were done under the supervision of the division of social medicine, a department in the Israeli ministry of health that implemented Eugenic ideas and philosophy.

Abarjel immigrated with his family to Israel from Morocco in the fifties, and became politically active after a popular uprising by Moroccan Jews in Wadi-Salib Haifa in 1959. In 1971 Abergel founded the Israeli Black Panthers. Inspired by the Black Panthers in the U.S. and determined to stop the racist and discriminatory way in which the state of Israel treated its Arab-Jews, the Israeli Panthers led and organized many demonstrations and uprisings against the establishment. Abarjel’s home became the headquarters for the Panthers, and Abarjel’s Israeli citizenship was taken away making him a refugee in the state of Israel.

Since the death of the Israeli Black Panthers due to internal conflicts, Abergel has been a Mizrahi anti-Zionist activist and has organized many visits to Palestinian refugee camps and demonstrations against the apartheid wall. In 2002 Abergel met with Arafat when the latter was under an Israeli siege. Abergel also organizes regular food and water deployments to Bedouin villages that the states of Israel has yet to officially recognize, as a consequence these villages lack basic infrastructure such as roads electricity and water transportation.

Please let Mr. Abarjel know that radiation was the standard treatemnt for ringworm in Europe, America, and in Asia and that he was not the victim of an experiement against his will.

A recent epidemic of tinea capitis in children
has revived a considerable interest in
the methods of treatment of this disease.
The most efficacious form of therapy for
M. audouini infections is roentgen epilation.
Cure was effected by this method in all of
a group of 125 cases.

This was an article from 1949 in San Francisco

so now you are radiologist? do your attempts to cover atrocities done by the Zionists state has no borders?
its one thing to "treat" kids with radiation, its another to subject them to hundred of thousands of radiations on a weekly basis. or to radiate the kids without their family consent. in Israel their is the Ringworm Society of people who have been subjected to experiments as kids. many of them died from different forms of cancer other are fighting it.
how low would Zionists go in an attempt to cover the orientalists and racists ideology practice by by the state of Israel?
