The Workers Revolutionary Party are liars and are hiding the truth of the Israeli struggle from their readers.This is an exercise for our readers to carry out. In our last article dealing with the Left Fascists of the SWP we explained the background to the Gaza crisis, that the Jews pulled out of Gaza etc.
We also explained that a young Jewish boy had to have his leg amputated yesterday due to one of these Arab Islamofascist rockets landing on his home.
Now today there is the following article in the paper of the WRP, the Workers Revolutionary Party.
This is the exercise: See if you can find any reference whatsoever in this article to the truth of what happened, the Israelis pulling out of Gaza and offering it to the Islamofascists free of Jews, or to the young Jewish boy having to have his leg amputated yesterday due to this Fascist rocket landing on his home.
WRP report of demo in London starts here
OVER 800 people attended the latest fortnightly picket outside Downing Street on Saturday to demand: ‘End the siege on Gaza!’Thousands have taken part in the pickets to demand British government action against Israel and its siege of the Gaza Strip, which has created a humanitarian crisis in the tiny strip of land that is home to 1.5 million Palestinians Calling for more people to join the pickets, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign (PSC) said: ‘The Israeli army has closed all border crossings of the Gaza Strip since June 2006.
‘This total siege has created a humanitarian crisis, destroyed the economy and violates the basic human rights of the Palestinian civilian population, particularly the rights to decent living conditions, health and education.
‘On 19 September 2007, the Israeli government declared the Gaza Strip “a hostile entity’’ and stepped up its collective punishment.
‘A crime is being perpetrated against the civilians in Gaza which violates international law and the Fourth Geneva Convention.’
Demonstrators shouted slogans opposite the gates to Downing Street, including: ‘One, two, three, four – occupation no more! Five, six, seven, eight – Israel is a Zionist state!’, ‘Free, free Palestine!’, ‘Occupation is a crime! Israel out of Palestine!’, ‘From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!’, ‘End the siege on Gaza!’ and ‘Free Gaza now!’
There were placards saying things like: ‘Free Palestine – End Israeli occupation’, ‘The Wall Must Fall’ and ‘72 Palestinians died because of the siege of Gaza from lack of medical drugs in Gaza hospitals or were denied access to hospitals outside Gaza!!’
Members of the Jewish community in London also brought banners showing their opposition to Israel’s occupation of Palestine.
A samba band arrived to join the demonstration. Then the shouting stopped as the names of those who have died because of a lack of medicines during the siege were read out to the picket.
Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn, who took part in the latest picket, said: ‘I’m in solidarity with the people of Gaza against the siege and the way in which the border has now been re-sealed.
‘I think the government, as I’ve said in parliament, should first of all ensure the necessary aid gets through to Gaza as a matter of urgency and, secondly, it should suspend the EU-Israel trade agreement because of Israel’s breach of the Palestinians’ human rights.’
Jean Lambert, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP), told News Line: ‘I was in Gaza on Tuesday this week and what’s going on there is an absolute humanitarian tragedy.
‘There was a delegation of MEPs from nine different countries who visited Gaza and different points on the West Bank.
‘We were being taken round by the United Nations relief agency (UNRWA) and visited a hospital in Gaza.
‘The hospitals are having to use emergency generators for general use.
‘The man in charge of the hospital said there were not enough reserve stocks of fuel to maintain power supplies.
‘The drug list that they’re working to is the one the World Health Organisation says is the absolute basic minimum in a situation of conflict and they’re running low or running out of some drugs, and when we were there it was particularly cancer treatment drugs.’
She added: ‘They’ve got 10 kidney dialysis machines which are out of use because they can’t get an engineer in across the border to fix them and they can’t get the parts.
‘You can see from the posters here naming Palestinians who have died that people are dying because they can’t get out of Gaza for treatment. They estimate that 80 patients have died so far because of this.
‘There was a seven-year-old boy who was on dialysis treatment. He’s in a critical condition and really needs treatment outside Gaza and he’s been refused exit as a “security risk’’! He’s seven years old.
‘The hospital was teetering on the brink of collapse.’
Lambert said that ‘the British government should be immediately exerting maximum pressure at the EU end to suspend the EU-Israel trade agreement.’
Clive Bettington, who also joined Saturday’s demonstration, said: ‘I think Israel’s committing human rights violations against the people of Gaza and the Palestinians generally, and it’s time the West stopped supporting Israel blindly.
‘I’m against the occupation and I believe in a Palestinian state where everyone can live together, and the right of return of the refugees.
‘I think the present Labour government is very strongly pro-Israeli and they’re never going to criticise the Israeli government and Blair’s mission in the Middle East is a complete farce.’
Omar, another demonstrator, said: ‘We want the Gazan people to see the pictures of us demonstrating against the siege they are under.
‘The people of Gaza need the world to know that they’re being oppressed.
‘Anyone who is going through any kind of difficulty, when they know there is someone who sympathises with them, then it makes them stronger.’
Lana Hashem said: ‘I’m here to lift the siege on Gaza.
‘I’m of Palestinian origin. I want to see more people turn out every fortnight on these demonstrations to support the Palestinians.
‘Israel has got away with far too much for far too long and people are blinded to what’s going on.
‘I think we need to press the government to change its policy.
‘There needs to be international action to lift the siege and make Palestine a viable state.
‘Palestinians don’t want to live under occupation – nobody wants to live under occupation – and something’s got to change.
‘The British government has to tell the American government to stop supporting Israel.
‘Israel would not be where it is without America. They give billions every year to the Israeli state and give them weapons.’
Citing a United Nations ‘OCHA Special Focus’ December 2007 report, the Palestine Solidarity Campaign said: ‘Palestinians are suffering from hunger and malnutrition. Food imports cover only 41 per cent of demand. 80 per cent of Gazans receive food aid and 80 per cent live below the poverty line.
‘People who are seriously ill are being prevented from accessing essential medical treatment outside Gaza. . .
‘Israel is cutting fuel and electricity supplies, affecting essential health and water facilities. 210,000 people are able to access drinking water for only 1-2 hours a day.
‘Meanwhile, the Israeli army continues its attacks on the imprisoned Palestinian people of Gaza, demolishing homes, factories and agricultural land and carrying out arrests.
‘Fatal bombing raids continue, killing Palestinian men, women and children.
‘The Israeli, EU, US and British governments hope to overturn the results of the last Palestinian parliamentary elections in January 2006, declared free and fair by the international community.
‘This siege is punishing the Palestinians for simply exercising their democratic right to choose their own representatives.’
end of WRP article on demo in London yesterday
Did you see any reference to the Jews pulling out of Gaza? No, there is no reference! Did you see any reference to the Jewish boy having his leg amputated? No there is no reference!
What this means in short is that the WRP and the SWP are in fact Left Fascists. Nothing more to add really!
It is necessary to build a true revolutionary socialist leadership in the tradition of Leon Trotsky and his principled support for the Jews to create a Jewish Homeland in Palestine. The WRP have lied about this history.
And nowhere is it mentioned that Hamas was not ‘chosen.’ They essentially took over by a coup – killing as their means of taking over. They have installed a regime of fear. A recent thing they’ve done is to take a truck of foodstuffs – meant for the Red Crescent to be distributed to the needy – for their fighters. Get this out to the MSM! I’m still in shock that you – a socialist – is actively pro-Israel! This kind of support usually comes from the Right.
Hamas is a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood which is a Fascist organization which worked with the Nazis in the destruction of the Jews in the Holocaust.
Fatah was founded by the Nazi Hajj Amin el Husseini through his Arab Higher Committee. Hajj Amin el Husseini was the close associate of Eichmann and Himmler in the Nazi Holocaust. Abbas and Arafat were the trained pupils of htis monster.
There are differences between Fatah and Hamas but on the issue of killing Jews and of destroying Israel there are no differences.
What is your position on the Nazi roots to the Palestinian Arab movement?
Of course revolutionary socialists have to support the Jews and their right to a Homeland free from antisemitism. That was the position of Leon Trotsky who was a great socialist revolutionary. Are you not aware of that?
I know all about the Nazi roots of today’s ‘palestinian’ movement. But from my current knowledge, today’s leftists are anti-Israel. Tell me, are you alone in this or are there others like you???
There are others.
Please try to state more precisely where you stand or we waste time.
Leon Trotsky was the best friend that the Jews had in the 1930s. The Left today have deliberately hidden his actual political positions of support for the Jews.
There is a chasm between Trotsky and today’s “Left” like the SWP and WRP.
Do you understand this. If you find this is news I would not be surprised as it has been hidden.
Where I stand??? I live in Israel and I am horrified about the rockets raining down on Sderot every single day and this lousy government does nothing. Olmert goes flying off to Germany to get ‘permission’ from Merkel to do something about the Qassams!! I know absolutely nothing about Trotsky. Besides the issues of Israel and Kosovo – how do you stand on other issues? And, again, are there others working with you? Or are you a ‘lone voice?’
