Israpundit, and editor Ted Belman, have been running a campaign now for months which is attacking Obama, to some small extent Clinton, but which is ignoring the Fascism of McCain in his dealings with the Serbs over the past 20 years, and an international Fascism going on to the present in the key issue for Jews of recognition of Kosovo, or “Kosova” as McCain would say.
Readers should visit Israpundit and see the latest entry there by Ted Belman in an article called:
With Obama, it’s the Communism, Stupid.
This title is not the words of Ted Belman but of Cliff Kincaid of AIM. As far as I can gather Clinton has attacked Obama on his relationship with this guy Bill Ayers, and then McCain has joined in. Then Ted Belman of Israpundit takes it up. I wonder where Israpuundit is, and also where it is going.
The AIM article is on
The Israpundit article is on
The really key thing for me as a revolutionary socialist, a communist, a Trotskyist, is what was the nature of the politics of Ayers in the first place because Kincaid is obviously using Ayers and his record to slam revolutionary socialism.
So I placed the following on Israpundit:
[start quote here]
“We’re revolutionary communists,” Ayers himself said in 1969
And to that I say, well good for him, but I need to check on if it is true and if he really was a revolutionary communist.
I consider myself as a revolutionary communist and I am proud of being so, and to stand in the same tradition as Lenin, Trotsky and before them of Marx and Engels.
I believe rather firmly that the capitalist system is a bankrupt system, it is in its death agony and part of that death agony is the growth and use of Fascism. The Holocaust was the result of Fascism.
Ted is running this site and he should state his position after having introduced this article from AIM.
When Kincaid says Ayers was a communist what does he mean, what organization did he belong to, what was its programme etc?

So Ted, you have portrayed this man as a communist to your readers.
Now you have a responsibility to tell us where you are going with this.
I have dug a little on this.
“In his most recent screed, Fugitive Days, Ayers recounts his life as a Sixties radical, his tenure as a Weatherman lieutenant, his terrorist campaign across America, and his enduring hatred for for the United States. “What a country,” Ayers said in 2001. “It makes me want to puke.”
Ayers was an active participant in Weatherman’s 1969 “Days of Rage” riots in Chicago, where nearly 300 members of the organization employed guerrilla-style tactics to viciously attack police officers and civilians alike, and to destroy massive amounts of property via vandalism and arson; their objective was to further spread their anti-war, anti-American message. Reminiscing on those riots, Ayers says pridefully: “We’d … proven that it was possible — we didn’t all die, we were still there.”
A substantial portion of Ayers’ book Fugitive Days discusses the author’s penchant for building and deploying explosives. Ayers boasts that he “participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972.” Of the day he bombed the Pentagon, Ayers says, “Everything was absolutely ideal. … The sky was blue. The birds were singing. And the bastards were finally going to get what was coming to them.”
On another occasion, Ayers stated: “There’s something about a good bomb … Night after night, day after day, each majestic scene I witnessed was so terrible and so unexpected that no city would ever again stand innocently fixed in my mind. Big buildings and wide streets, cement and steel were no longer permanent. They, too, were fragile and destructible. A torch, a bomb, a strong enough wind, and they, too, would come undone or get knocked down.”
All told, Ayers and Weatherman were responsible for 30 bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructures of the U.S. “I don’t regret setting bombs, said Ayers in 2001, “I feel we didn’t do enough.””
Now on the latter sentence about not regretting if you consult the Wikipedia entry you will find Ayers claiming that these words by the NYT are a total distortion, ie lies.
(So the next question is who is the above source?)
And those of us following Yugoslavia have experience of that.
I really am no wiser to knowing who Ayers was. He could be anybody, he could even be an agent of the ruling American capitalist class. I dunno!
Tell us Ted who he was?
This is a nightmare you are leading Israpundit into Ted!

Meanwhile on Israpundit the record of McCain on Yugoslavia, and perhaps much more, is being hidden from those readers of Israpundit.
But McCain along with his buddy Joseph Lieberman were pure evil as far as the Serbs were concerned.
This is a quote from Serbianna:
[begin quote here]
Americans of Albanian heritage collected a million dollars in one evening for the presidential campaign of Republican Senator John McCain, said the Albanian American Civic League yesterday, the lobby group headed by former Congressman Joe DioGuardi. A reception for McCain was held January 22 at the Saint Regis Hotel in Manhatten, and the senator, who is now leading in the runoff for the Republican party candidacy in the November elections, cut his campaign in Florida by one day to attend this gathering.
“Even in 1998 when we had problems with Milosevic, McCain did everything that we asked of him to the benefit of the Albanian people, including arming the KLA”, announced DioGuardi. “We are American Albanians and we need a leader who will strengthen this country… We must support John McCain because he did everything we asked of him for Kosovo, from supporting the Kosovo Liberation Army to supporting the independence of Kosovo. Two years ago he spoke in Brussels and said that independence is the only solution”, concluded this former congressman who has been fighting for the independence of Kosovo and Metohija for more than twenty years.
He explained that the first thing McCain said to him when he entered the hotel in Manhatten on January 22: “Joe, I saw your people in Michigan, and in South Carolina and in New Hampshire”, from which this lobbyist deduced that all Americans of Albanian background will be voting for the senator from Arizona.
DioGuardi and his wife Shirley Cloys-DioGuardi have been friends with McCain for years, and he intervened several times in the Senate on behalf of the Albanians. Because of that, the Albanian American Civic League awarded him the “Balkan Award for Peace” a year and a half ago, and the initiative was the proposed Senate resolution – which McCain wrote – in which thanks is extended to the Albanians for “saving all the Jews who lived in Albania or who sought shelter there during the Nazi Holocaust”.

The above is really all about the creation of an Islamist state in Europe and the preparations for a world war against Russia and/or China.
What I fear is that there are very big vested interests at work behind the scenes in this American Presidential election with massive implications for the world, and not least for the Jews. It is time we on 4international followed this more closely. Certainly all of these 3 candidates represent different elements within American Imperialism and it is fatal for Jews to tie ion with any.
