Uri Avnery is gone: 1923-2018, but his legacy remains

Uri with Begin and Sadat, always in the middle of the struggle

[ Editor’s Note: We had been expecting the worst for Uri, as strokes for people in their 90’s are usually the end of the road. He went quickly after a long and full life, not a bad way to go.

His enemies have already started attacking his corpse. Wikipedia, usually quick to add obits to profiles, seems to be waiting for instructions.

But Uri can fight on after his death, something we writers are blessed to have the opportunity to do. His body of work is huge, and cannot be erased. He was not a Tweeter, and the jabs he will get now will bounce off his legacy like ping pong balls.

Avnery

In 2010, Avnery was attacked after a peace rally in Tel Aviv, where he had criticized the Israeli military action against the Free Gaza convoy.

We had our issues with him, primarily his refusal to even entertain the prospect that if the post WWII Jews had not crashed into Palestine, then all the carnage that ensued would probably never happened.

The case has already been made that Jews who did not go to Israel did just fine. Most did not want to go there anyway, with the US being their top choice.

During the post-war Allied occupation, US military intelligence compiled a body of reports about radical Zionists, all Communists, who were impressing Jews in the displacement camps into going to Israel, as they ran most of the camp’s administration centers and knew everybody’s occupation.

If you had a needed skill, like an aircraft mechanic, they just came and got you and smuggled you out. Mass media never touched any of this, but the US general (Eisenhower’s logistics commander for D-Day) who was over all the camps, covered it in detail in his book.

Uri’s work will live on. We hope ours will, tooJim W. Dean ]

Uri Avnery crosses over

– First published … August 20, 2018

Gush Shalom grieves and mourns the passing of its founder, Uri Avnery. Until the last moment he continued on the way he had traveled all his life.

On Saturday, two weeks ago, he collapsed in his home when he was about to leave for the Rabin Square and attend a demonstration against the “Nation State Law”, a few hours after he wrote a sharp article against that law.

Avnery devoted himself entirely to the struggle to achieve peace between the state of Israel and the Palestinian people in their independent state, as well as between Israel and the Arab and Muslim World.

He did not get to the end of the road, did not live to see peace come about. We – the members of Gush Shalom as well as very many other people who were directly and indirectly influenced by him – will continue his mission and honor his memory.

On the day of the passing of Uri Avnery, the most right wing government in the history of Israel is engaged in negotiations with Hamas. Ironically, the same kind of demagogic accusations which were hurled at Uri Avnery throughout his life are now made against Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

In the history of the State of Israel, Uri Avnery will be inscribed as a far-seeing visionary who pointed to a way which others failed to see. It is the fate and future of the State of Israel to reach peace with its neighbors and to integrate into the geographical and political region in which it is located. Avnery’s greatest opponents will ultimately have to follow in his footsteps – because the State of Israel has no other real choice.

  1. Moreover, the intent of the ruling elite of the Ashkenazi invaders is more rape. Witness the Oded Yinon Plan.

    ESSENTIAL READING: The Zionist plan for the Middle East
    By Ian Greenhalgh on January 9, 2017
    Readers will no doubt be well aware of the fact that there is a Zionist agenda being followed by the Zionist state of Israel and it’s cohorts in the US and NATO to radically alter the Middle East, to destroy the Arab nation states that surround Israel and to further the Zionist hegemony over the region. We often refer to this agenda under the name ‘The Oded Yinon Plan’ but have never published that plan, which appeared in 1982 under the title of “A Strategy for Israel in the Nineteen Eighties” by Oded Yinon. Here is that plan reproduced in full, translated from the original Hebrew and with added notes by the translator and publisher which add clarity to the overall picture.

  2. Jim, the photo of Uri in front of the window reminded me instantly of these words of St. Paul: “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” I think the important thing to remember about Uri is that he was a peacemaker (or troublemaker, take your pick) right up until his recent stroke. He wrote an article, and then got ready to go to a demonstration. All this at age 94. I hope to have that kind of physical and mental health, and to cause trouble, well into my 90s too. My mother lived and caused trouble into her 90s, so I like my odds.

    • He would have been 95 in September. For dedication he set an example. The Left in Israel has not had much political power in a long time, but they had voice and the drive to not allow their views to be erased from the public discourse. They of course were waiting for the pendulum to swing back, for the people to get tired of the Likuds, but alas that has not happened.

  3. Sad to hear that. His opinion was steady, Uri will be Uri, You can count on that. And now at that direction, who do we count on from now on.

  4. Sad, a big loss, you can disagree with him but he was one of the very few joos intellectually honest.
