Officers Sword

Anarchist or Prophet? by eileen fleming

"We have yet to begin to Imagine the power and potential of the Internet"-Charlie Rose, 2005.

The moment I heard Rose say that on his PBS show, I did begin to imagine the power and potential of the Internet to unite we the people of the world to challenge the "powers and principalities of this world" via the world wide web nonviolently by using words of truth sharper than a two-edged sword. For, there are no borders on the Internet and "we have it in our power to begin the world again."-Tom Paine

Without the Internet I would not have known about or met Jonathan Pollak, an intense young Israeli and committed activist and organizer for Anarchist's Against the Wall/AAtW who spoke throughout major cities in America last Fall.

AAtW is a nonviolent Palestinian grass roots movement that nonviolently opposes the building of The Wall in Palestine where ever it does not follow the Green Line. Palestinians direct the nonviolent activities and are supported by an ever increasing presence of Israeli's and Internationals.

In November 2005, I attended the Gainsville, Florida, Anarchist's Against the Wall Power Point Lecture, one of over thirty that were presented in America.

The two AAtW that I heard in November 2005, stated, "Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met with President Bush last week while we were in Washington, D.C. speaking on nonviolent resistance in Palestine. Though we wish Mr. Abbas success in his discussions with the US and Israel, history shows that negotiations alone will not secure freedom for the Palestinian people.

"During the negotiations of the so-called Oslo Peace Process from 1993-2000, Israel simply imposed its will on the Palestinians, using its overwhelming military and economic power, and US support. During seven years of supposed peace, Palestinians saw 200,000 new Israeli settlers arrive in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, the same number of settlers that had arrived there in the previous 26 years.

"However, the recent grassroots struggle against Israel's Wall has demonstrated that it may be possible to counter Israel's overwhelming power, and its exploitation of negotiations, through nonviolent resistance. The Wall, one blatant recent Israeli attempt to impose its will, has become a focus for civilian resistance.

"Although Israel marketed the Wall as a security barrier, logic suggests such a barrier would be as short and straight as possible. Instead, it snakes deep inside the West Bank, resulting in a route that is twice as long as the Green Line, the internationally recognized border. Israel chose the Wall's path in order to dispossess Palestinians of the maximum land and water, to preserve as many Israeli settlements as possible, and to unilaterally determine a border.

"In order to build the Wall Israel is uprooting tens of thousands of ancient olive trees that for many Palestinians are also the last resource to provide food for their children.

"The Palestinian aspiration for an independent state is also threatened by the Wall, as it isolates villages from their mother cities and divides the West Bank into disconnected cantons. The Israeli human rights organization B'Tselem conservatively estimates that 500,000 Palestinians are negatively impacted by the Wall.

"Faced with a history of suffering, Palestinians have no alternative but to struggle. The only question is how? Killing diminishes our humanity, and Israel's occupation, which has killed thousands of Palestinians, shouldn't be our teacher. It is time for both sides to refuse killing.

"Though Palestinians have employed nonviolence since 1929, they have seen little evidence that it will help them to achieve freedom. In 2003-2004, the West Bank village of Budrus decided to set an example for how nonviolence can defeat the Wall.

"All the people of Budrus mobilized, and were joined by Israeli and international activists. In 55 nonviolent marches, Israeli soldiers injured more than 300 people, arrested 33 and killed one, as the villagers, with their bodies alone, attempted to stop the destruction of their land. Faced with Budrus' determined protests, the Israeli government eventually moved the Wall to the Green Line. The village saved 300 acres of its land and 3000 olive trees. Children, women and old people were among the heroes of Budrus' nonviolent struggle.

"Throughout the West Bank, nine protesters were killed in marches against the Wall, thousands were injured and hundreds arrested. Hundreds of civilian protests throughout the West Bank are the reason the world learned of the injustice of the Wall. As a direct result, the International Court of Justice at the Hague ruled in 2004 that Israel's construction of the Wall violated international law.

"Budrus and the ICJ ruling represent victories for nonviolent resistance. Another success of the joint struggle was the connection forged between Palestinians and the Israelis who joined them in their resistance. This connection, stronger than anything that ideas could create, was unwittingly forged by the Israeli army, through their beatings, the joint arrests and the bullets. Joining Palestinians in nonviolent struggle has allowed some Israelis to voice very clearly that the struggle against occupation and for freedom is not a Palestinian struggle alone, but is their struggle as well.

"Today, we are speaking together around the US because we believe that, as with Apartheid South Africa, Americans have a vital role to play in ending Israeli occupation - by divesting from companies that support Israeli occupation, boycotting Israeli products, coming to Palestine as witnesses, or standing with Palestinians in nonviolent resistance.

"We are confident that Israeli occupation will one day be defeated, as were other US government supported repressive regimes - Apartheid South Africa, Pinochet's Chile and racial segregation in the United States.

"There is no price too great to pay for freedom, and nothing will deter us from achieving this goal."- Jonathan and Ayed, AAtW Spokespersons and Activists.

In an October 1, 2006 email Jonathan wrote:

Hello,

On February 23rd, 2004 the International Court of Justice in The Hague began its proceedings on the legality of the wall Israel is building in the West Bank.

That same day, which was declared an International Day of Rage, we had originally planned to join a demonstration at the village of Deir El-Ghassun, but this plan was foiled by the army, which simply blocked us on our way several times.

We then headed back to Tel Aviv where we blocked the road in front of the Ministry of Defense. The police reacted by arresting 13 demonstrators using great violence, that summed up to, amongst other things, one cracked nose and one demonstrator that was knocked unconscious.

Soon after, indictments were filed charging 11 of the 13 arrestees with assaulting a police officer, obstruction of a police officer, rioting and spray painting. During the trial all assault charges were dropped.

Attorney Gaby Lasky, who represents the defendants, based the defense on two principles:

1) Exposing the incredibility of the prosecution witnesses (the arresting officers) and pointing to the lies and contradictions in their testimonies.

2) Arguments of defense of necessity and abuse of process, grounded in both International Law and Israeli law. Since the wall is being constructed in breach of international law, as the ICJ since already ruled, Israel is a criminal state and it is our duty to resist its crimes, even by breaking local laws, as was determined in the Nuremberg and Tokyo War Crimes Tribunals (1945-9 and 1946-8 respectively).

The verdict in the case will be heard coming Tuesday (October 3rd) at 10:00 am in Justice Muki Landman's hall at the Magistrates Court in Tel Aviv (Weitzman and Shaul Hamelh Blvd)

Legal persecution is one of the main and most effective ways Israel is using to try and suppress the resistance to the occupation. Please come to support us and send the message - the resistance to the crimes of the occupation continues

In solidarity,

Jonathan
Anarchists Against the Wall
"Brothers and Sisters, what are your real desires?"

The verdict aquitted the AAtW of any violence and their video taping of the incident proved the police had not been factual in their charges.

The power of the Internet is that it proves there are no borders between us and the truth will always get out.

The potential to be in solidarity for human rights and justice for ALL our brothers and sisters in the world: is up to us.

In solidarity "We have it in our power to begin the world again"-Tom Paine

May we all do something to make it happen and may Godspeed be upon us.

Frequently Asked Questions...

On a US Naval Officers Sword- What is the Knot on the Scabbard- ?

it is made of gold and there are 2 of them, one towards the top, and another towards the bottom of the scabbard. What are these to Solid Gold Knots called. They are not Sword knots, they are some kind of different knot, Help!
it is made of gold and there are 2 of them, one across from the first Ring, and another across from the 2nd ring on the lower part of the scabbard. What are these to Solid Gold Knots called. They are not Sword knots, they are some kind of different knot, Help!


Answer:

There is no knot on the sword.
Below is a list of places that make the sword you are referring to and you will see that there is no knot on them. The handle is plastic.
There is a tassle that is put on to the handle for O-6 and above. This is probably what you are thinking of. It just loops on the the handle.
You can see that pictured seperately on the Marlow White website.
