Abstract

The Black Panther Party in America had a far reaching impact internationally due to the importance they placed on intersectional solidarity between various movements. A notable example of this solidarity was between the American Panthers and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). One group that was impacted profoundly by the American Panthers was formed by young Mizrahi Jews (Jews from Arab and North African countries) a generation after the foundation of the State of Israel. They took on the name Ha’Panterim Ha’Shchorim (‘Black Panthers’ in Hebrew). This research analyzes the solidarity between the Israeli Panthers and the PLO, comparing it to the solidarity between the American Panthers and the PLO. The research utilizes the established literature on the American Black Panthers and the Israeli Black Panthers, as well as historical archives and interviews with subjects familiar with the Israeli Black Panthers and their activities.
