HISTORICAL SERIES 1

HISTORICAL SERIES…INTRODUCTION

by Felix Quigley

January 29, 2009

The Jewish struggle especially from 1850 onwards to identify themselves as a nation and to create a National Homeland is absolutely central to the whole perspective of Socialist Revolution. If one accepts that capitalism, once a revolutionary system and the capitalist class a revolutionary class, but that it is in its death agony, meaning that it can not bring mankind forward… If socialism is the logical answer… Then it is inconceivable that in the creation of a new form of society on earth that central in that new form could not be the right of Jews to live unmolested by anti-Semitism. This is what makes our website 4international different. We see the national struggle of the Jews in particular, and national issues in general, as central in the socialist revolution.

In recent weeks at the time of the war in Gaza we have experienced once again antisemitic mobs on the streets of cities and towns in Europe, America and Canada led by Islamofascists and by so called Leftists. Most of the Left is now allied with Islam. But they all breed on ignorance. This issue is not covered historically in a comprehensive way. This is what we willnow do on this site. Each article will have a title and will be numbered.

 The following are a few introductory points:

1.      Neither Marx, Engels, Luxemburg, Lenin or Trotsky paid any proper attention to this question. But it goes deeper than just the Jews. Since the Jews represented the oldest and most determined national struggle for self liberation that the world has known, definitely the longest, then it follows from the above that their tardiness in recognizing Jewish nationalism was but a reflection of how these socialist revolutionaries looked on nationalism as a whole.

2.      However it is completely anti dialectical to thereby reject what has become known as Marxism. It Marxism merely follows the path of knowledge and since man is a human and animal being then he has to move in his thinking from ignorance or incomplete knowledge to fuller knowledge. This dialectical process is shown very clearly in the close relationship between the thoughts of Leon Trotsky and the thoughts of Herzl

3.      To review quickly these revolutionary socialist leaders. Marx and Engels made their huge development by explaining in a scientific manner how capitalism worked and necessarily paying close attention to the phenomenon of capitalist system and its development historically. Lenin and Trotsky made their development in the field of revolutionary practice centering on the building of the scientific party leadership. Lenin while he did not recognize the Jews as a nation nevertheless held the Jews in very high esteem as a people. Trotsky it was who mirrored this interconnection between the socialist revolution and the Jewish perspectives most deeply. At no point in the life of Trotsky was he separate from this issue, from the reporting of the Sixth Zionist Congress in 1903, Herzl’s last, right to the time of his death in 1940. It is this inter relationship which is of the greatest moment today as we try to untangle this web of political struggles, political positions taken and eventual synthesis. This will therefore be part of our History of the Jews. We are dialectical materialists and nothing else. We stand for Jewish nationalism and the rights of Jewish nationalism including the right to be Jewish in all respects. In doing so we are fighting for this in the death agony of the capitalist system. This is what makes us different to every other political tendency. Nothing like us exists anywhere. If there does email us rapidly to let us know! We will return to this again. We are revolutionary socialists and that colours everything we do.

The following is a tentative outline which we will follow

 

HISTORICAL SERIES…OUTLINE

 

·         The origins of the Jewish nation, a very old people, years of independence as a nation, the bible of the Jews the first expression of national self consciousness written down, return from exile in Babylon with their bible and self consciousness as a nation

·         The two major Jewish revolts against the Roman tyrants, the first Holocausts of the Jews, driven into Exile, fighting qualities of the Jews against the tyrants

·         The Jesus experience

·         Christian anti-Semitism, sayings of the saints

·         Karl Marx, whether he expressed it correctly or not, Marx did show that Jews played a role in the formation of capitalism, answer to those who say Marx was anti-Semitic is in his visit to Jerusalem 1854, Marx in his way showed the Jews attachment to the land of Israel, that is Palestine

·         Next year in Jerusalem, the ancient prayer of the exile, over 2000 year duration

·         The return, the Jews never ever stole land from a single Arab, how it worked, the Jews bought land from all too willing Arab sellers at inflated prices, in other words for their purchase the Jews paid dearly

·         Hopes of the returning Jews, that they would find a space and would help the Arabs to a better life, they were thinking cooperation

·         From Hess to Herzl, the concept was the same…without a Homeland the Jews are vulnerable

·         The genius of Herzl lay not in the Dreyfus Affair in France but in sensing the huge changes that would usher in wide spread anti-Semitism in the break up of the Austro Hungarian Empire. He sensed this somewhat instinctively and it was here that the mass Jew killing took place some 50 years or so later. Herzl did great things but everything pales in relation to this spot of genius

·         The end of the 1914 to 1918 World War saw great geographical and social change. But it also ushered in the first evidence of Arab Nazism based on a combination of the Imperialist nature of Islam, long hidden by Western powers like Britain, with sheer and brutal hatred of Jews, Jew Hatred also known as anti-Semitism, despite the Arabs also being a Semitic people the word refers only to hatred of Jews in common parlance. We meet the main character in many ways in our history, Hajj Amin el Husseini, also known as the Mufti of Jerusalem. The significance of this man in our historical narrative cannot be underestimated

·         Most people today do not understand the geographical equation. The area offered to the Jews centred on their ancient Judea in Palestine was a very small area indeed in proportion to the enormous vastness of the land given to the Arabs after 1918, with the added paradox that the Arabs were on the losing side in that war. An acquaintance with nothing more prosaic than maps will help to clarify

·         It is vital to understand clearly these League of Nations machinations. How the Jews were well and truly tricked by Churchill who posed as a friend of the Jews. That the false terms left and right used in Israeli politics stem from the Churchill action of giving 78 per cent of the Jewish Homeland to the Arabs, as starters!

·         The various pogroms against the Jews organized by Hajj Amin el Husseini, especially 1920, 1929 and 1936 to 39. Study of this begins to clarify that the Jews were unprepared for dealing with modern Fascism and modern Racism,

·         The material roots to German and Italian Nazism. The material roots to Islam Nazism. The alliance that they formed through the alliance of Hajj Amin el Husseini with Hitler, and Hitler-s acolytes in the practice of the Holocaust, Heydrich, Eichmann and Himmler. The alliance of Arab Nazism and German Nazism was both natural and inevitable. When one talks German Nazism, or Fascism in general, a modern phenomenon then we enter into the mind of the expert in this, that is Leon Trotsky. Would one discuss the theory of relativity and ignore Einstein!

·         The el Husseini political itinerary…Close examination of the meeting of Hajj Amin el Husseini with Adolf Hitler in November 1941, the timing of this meeting a few months before the Wannsee Conference organized to bring about the “Final Solution” involving the gassing of the Jews. The connection between Wannsee and the closing of borders to Jews by Britain, America, France, Ireland, Spain etc etc. All these anti-Semitic hypocrites were implicated in the Nazi Holocaust!

·         The Holocaust that the “Jewish” American Neocons hate to talk about took place in Yugoslavia. The Arab from Palestine Hajj Amin el Husseini was in control here and working closely with the Islamofascist Elija Izetbegovic. He was promoted as the key figure in the defeat of the Serbs by Clinton and by Holbrook. And who are the main people Obama has chosen, Clintons wife and Holbrook. A new reactionary force in politics, the reactionary “humanitarians”, really Imperialists in disguise, centered around Harry’s Place and people like Oliver Kamm. Our first modern experience of the Lies of the Media.

·         Apart from Yugoslavia Hajj Amin was absolutely central in the overall Holocaust. Hajj Amin is responsible for easily 1 in 15 of all who died in the Holocaust, a significant number for one man, a non German. Not taught in schools in the West. Martin Gilbert non coverage. Why this is systematically hidden.

·         El Husseini and Hitler were equals in their Jew Murdering life project. The developing relationship between these monsters. Hitler had promised el Husseini that he el Husseini would be in charge of the Holocaust in Palestine and in the Arab countries such as Tunisia and Morocco. So we look at the evidence of Mallman who writes that a team of the Einsatzgruppe was standing by in Athens ready to move in, when Rommel won through in North Africa. The team was led in the first instance by Walter Rauff who had invented the Gas Van method of killing Jews. But Rauff was answerable to El Husseini and Eichmann. If Rommel had not been defeated in North Africa then every Jew in Palestine would have died horrible deaths. What happened in the Baltics throws light on what might have happened to the Jews in Palestine and in the North African countries.

·         Britain and the Jews. How did they go from the honorable position of Lord Balfour to the rabid anti-Semitism of Nye Bevin and many others in the British Establishment? Bevin and his like have a great responsibility for the 6 millions of dead Jews in the Holocaust. The importance of Cromwell in this regard. The nature of the British Restoration of the Monarchy in this regard also. The social conditions for extreme anti-Semitism in the British ruling establishment class

·         More on…The progressive influence of the Bible on a section of British society which influenced Lord Balfour. The first signs of anti-Semitic Jews emerged in Britain at this time. British aristocratic anti-Semitism merges with Labour aristocracy anti-Semitism

·         Role of the British army, enemies of the Bolsheviks, enemies of the Jews, a crude link but a true one. So in 1920 the British aristocracy and the British army takes the Fascist el Husseini under their wing. In fact they make the career of the Mufti. The strange paradox, the British were denigrating the Mandate even before they undertook the Mandate

·         The role of the British in detail, emphasis here on the role of the British in the critical moments for the Jews. Especially 1920 pogrom. 1929 pogrom, 1936 pogrom, 1939 to 45 the Holocaust, 1947 the UN vote for partition and British abstention, 1948 importing of Nazis to fight the Jews as Britain sides with Arab Fascists, 1948 Britain bowing out with blood on its hands and in the company of German Nazis

·         And the US takes over. Just at the time when the US is recruiting tens of thousands of Nazis to fight the Jews and to fight against Communism in Europe. The US record towards the Jews from 1948 to the present has been researched and it shows the US capitalist class is the enemy of the Jews

·         Carter and Khomeini, Bush and the Saudis, Bush drives for Palestine state out of Israel land. Bush opens the door to Iran domination through the Iraq war. Little understood that Israel opposed the Iraq war.

·         Anti-Semitic forces in the US, Walt and Meirshammer

·         Opening the door for the Obama nexus. From Bush through McCain to Obama a seamless quilt made up of hatred of Israel

·         The Gaza war…emergence of anti-Semitic forces in every country in the world. Anti-Semitic banners openly carried on marches and demonstrators. Police accept this hate crime…against Jews. While opponents of Islam start to be imprisoned

·         The Left implodes on the Jewish issue! The Left marches with the Islamofascists. Palestinianism is modern anti-Semitism. The same hatred as the Nazis in the Holocaust but slightly adapted for public fools consumption

·         The Left are betraying socialist principles. Jew hatred not part of socialist tradition. Marx visit to Jerusalem, Lenin, the Black 100s and hatred of anti-Semitism, disgust of Trotsky with anti-Semitism, his realization and analysis that Stalin was using anti-Semitism against the Left Opposition, the Herzl Trotsky dialectic, Trotsky the main fighter against the Nazis, prediction of the Nazi Holocaust, unity of Trotsky with the Jews, Trotsky fights for Jewish state did this herald a Zionism of a new type, the Stalinist killing machine and decimation of the forces of Trotskyism and the Left Opposition in Russia, Germany, France and Spain. Finally the murder of Trotsky in Mexico

·         The Trotsky fight against the impressionism of Shachtman and Burnham. This impressionism carried on by first of all Cliff and Mandel, then by Cannon and Healy. The criminal anti-Semitism of Healy and the Redgraves now carried on especially by the SWP and WSWS but really by all the “Left” including the Matgamma group. The roots of this anti-Semitism lie not in socialism but in the Stalinist murder of socialists, especially the murder of Trotsky who had potentially many years left to live. Study of the impressionism of Healy and Redgrave leads into an understanding of the present “Left” becoming an agent of Islamic Imperialism. Inability to deal with the Jews leads to the working class left without socialist leaders in a period of greatest crisis ever in world capitalism.

·         Modern day Fascism and political correctness, the hounding of Mark Steyne by Canadian Rights Groups, the hounding of Jews by the Israel Supreme Court, the hounding and now persecution of Geert Wilderrs in Holland by a pro Islam establishment

·         Fascism is emerging but in different forms to the 1930s. Look for differences but the content is the same. History repeats but never in exactly the same way. The new Fascism is focused in the Wilders case

·         The dangerous political correctness of David and gene in Harry’s Place. The new forces of revolution tend to burst through the old forms. The Serb haters like Venishka are now robustly challenged on Harry’s Place by new entrants like New Oxfordian. Venishka the scourge on HP of the Serbs emerges in conflict with these new forces defending the Nazi Youth Pope Benedict

·         The British workers in general remain true to the traditions of Magna Carta and of Cromwell. The workers opposed to political correctness. The British workers are the natural opponents of the Fascist Islamists and enter into conflict with their own capitalist rulers not only on the economy, but on these vital political issues of Fascism and Islamofascism

·         Northern Ireland the right wing Provo terrorists enter parliament. The destruction of democratic rights brought about by George Mitchell. How it was a step to Nazi fascism of today… 16, 000 pounds sterling for killers. The absurdity of the Northern Ireland “Peace” Movement

·         Fitting that Peace leader Maguire should join with the anti-Semitic ISM in attacks on the Jews of Israel. The Irish must pay their debts, not to Arafat and the Nazi el Husseini, but to Irish national liberation fighter and associate of Mick Collins, that is pay your debt to Jewish man from Dublin Ben Briscoe

·         Powell was closer to the needs of the British workers than was or is Livingstone

·         What we need today above all. Perhaps the biggest lie of all that the party of Lenin was not democratic. There was intense discussion within. How you know an anti-Semite today…linking Israel with Nazi Germany. How you know a communist baiter and hater…mixing up Lenin and Trotsky with Stalin and Stalinism. But we do need discussion in may areas today. And we do need to build up our Trotskyist organization to promote and to help promote that discussion. The discussion must take place.

·         In this regard the key importance of the American working class and ordinary people

TO LINK ISRAEL WITH NAZI GERMANY IS TOTALLY ANTISEMITIC

by Felix Quigley

January 28, 2009

The past weeks have been politically eventful and momentous.

 

Yesterday the reality of the situation facing the Jews of Israel was there to see for anybody who wants to see. A bunch of Hamas killers lay in wait, then exploded IRA style a bomb under a jeep, a young soldier dies, many injured, shouts of Allah is Great etc, grenades thrown at the soldiers. And Al Qaida style a video is made of it all

 

It was of course Hamas. All political Fascist groups inside the Gaza are under the direct control of Hamas.

 

This is a repeat of Arafat. While Holbrook and co were travelling to talk to Arafat, while Arafat was being feted in the White House by Clinton, Arafat was paying the wages with EU money and with US money paid by tax payers of the killers of other groups.

 

Arafat could then say. It wasn’t us chum. It was them ones

 

Exactly the same with Hamas and it happened during the so called truce much referred to by enemies of Israel and by the haters of Israel.

 

These haters of Israel, these present day anti-Semites, with their honeyed words say “Oh but Hamas kept the truce. It was Israel who broke the truce”

 

These types are not out on demos. They occupy radio and television stations you see. But their clever and honeyed words are disguising their disgusting hatred of Israel which is also their disgusting anti-Semitism.

 

They shrilled for Hamas in the war. Now they shrill again for Hamas by ignoring this murder across the border.

 

This is what happened yesterday and this should be rammed down the throats of these honeyed antisemites. This is Hamas.

Hamas are repeating what the IRA Provisionals used to do in the North of Ireland, much quoted now as an example. Whenever somebody like Mitchel would be coming to the province the IRA would kill somebody or let off an explosion. “Look how important we are. You can do nothing without us”

I cannot see much difference with this Hamas killing of this Israeli yesterday. Look Mitchel, they are saying, we rule here so you will have to deal with us directly.

DEBKAfile got it right on this

[Begin quote from DEBKA here]

    Hamas initiated the clash for the benefit of US president Barack Obama’s Middle East envoy George Mitchell the day before he arrives for his first visit to the region. It was a reminder to Washington that hostilities in Gaza would not end so long as Washington ignores Hamas.  

    They are reigniting the flames in Gaza to show the US president that his instruction to his envoy to stabilize the ceasefire is meaningless because neither he, Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak or Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert can make a ceasefire hold without Hamas’ concurrence.

 

To return to the demonstrations on Gaza which remain in our minds…

Meanwhile the repercussions of those demonstrations on Gaza remain in mind. These demos were anti-Semitism in action. A large anti-Semitic contingent now exists in every country in the world, especially in America and Europe.

 

This is made up of anti-Semitic Palestinian Arabs, and others, who are joined by movements who are renegades from true socialism like the SWP, WRP etc. These now form a large body prepared to take to the streets and challenge the police in every country, but from the right, just like the Nazis did.

 

Do not be confused by the use of the term “socialist” in the names of groups like the SWP. These are anti-Semitic and Fascist. Come to think of it the Nazis used the word “socialist” as well.

 

The main placards carried on their demos were “ZioNazi” and “Gaza Holocaust” and on the San Francisco demo “Jews are Murderers”. Plus many others on the same theme.

 

We on 4international now warn all our readers as to how to spot a Nazi and an Anti-Semite. We say that a sure sign is this linking the Jews of today with Nazis. That has been the dominant theme on these Fascist and Right Wing demos. That has been the dominant memory.

 

The task ahead is to build up the organization around the 4international. This is what we will devote ourselves to

 

It will be in continual struggle against these modern anti-Semites who come in many guises. But it all centres on those who are lining up with the “Palestinian” Arabs, which is the very centre of the anti-Semitic attack on Jews today. We will explain in detail what exactly this term “Palestinian” really means. The material we will publish soon will not have been published ever before.

 

Shortly we will announce plans on how to build our organization.

 

We do recognize that much of the evil work of these anti-Semites who liken Israel to Nazi Germany is based on total ignorance of history.

 

Consequently with great determination we will begin publishing on this site the real history of the Jews in the modern period and how they will never have peace as long as this anti-Semitic hatred of Jews remains.

 

And this is the way that we will avenge the murder of this young Israeli soldier by anti-Semitic murderers with their shouts of Allah is Great.

 

We will show that it is not Allah who is great, but scientific knowledge is great and is unstoppable. We believe in humanity.

 

We will be asking our readers and people we meet to join our truly great organization on that basis.

 

Let us leave the crap of fascism behind and forge a future.

OBAMA GIVES HIS FIRST INTERVIEW TO AN ARAB NETWORK

by Felix Quigley

January 27, 2009

These are important observations about Obama´s America. The whole process was begun by Carter, Clinton and Bush Jnr. It was under Carter that an alliance was reached with Bin Laden in Afghanistan against the Soviets. It was in Bosnia that an alliance was reached with the Islamofascist and Muslim Brotherhood life long member Elija Izetbegovic against the Serbs, and it was under Bush Jnr that an alliance was reached with Islam on the cinders of the Twin Towers when Bush appeared with Imans spouting that Islam was a religion of peace. Bush went on to push this alliance further with his world wide call for a Palestine state, the biggest sop of all to Islam.

Now there is to all intents and purposes a Muslim man and a Muslim woman in the White house. They operate under the guise of being Christians, that is Christians and Americans who are dhimmis of the Islam ideology. Whether they are consciously Muslim or not they are dhimmis and are seeking now for the great US democracy to become a fully fledged member of the dhimmi community, since Europe is already (follow links to EUrabia in Google)

This Al Arabiya interview is all important in this process. Amazing, utterly amazing stuff

[start Obama interview with Al Arabiya here]

Barack Obama presented a humble and conciliatory face of America to the Islamic world Monday in the first formal interview since he assumed office, stressing his own Muslim ties and hopes for a Palestinian state, and avoiding a belligerent tone — even when asked if America could “live with” an Iranian nuclear weapon.

The interview with the Dubai-based Al-Arabiya Network was a dramatic piece of public diplomacy aimed at capitalizing on the new American president‘s international popularity, though it balanced America’s traditional commitment to Israel, whose security Obama called “paramount.’

“I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries,” Obama said, according to a White House transcript. “My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy.”

The Al Arabiya interview, directed squarely at Muslims around the world, revived a vision of personal, symbolic international change that was in the air when Obama – with his far-flung family members, and complicated story – launched his campaign. It was a vision, and an aspect of his story, that the candidate buried when, in 2007, was forced to combat whispering campaigns about his own faith.

But by giving his first interview to the Arabic network, Obama signaled his continuing belief in his personal power as a symbol of America against the temptations of Islamic militancy. He even dismissed “bankrupt” ideas and policies that don’t improve children’s health care, jabbing at “nervous” Al Qaeda leaders in language that echoed his campaign against George W. Bush.

The occasion for this interview was the departure of Obama’s special envoy, George Mitchell, to the Middle East, and a more aggressive and optimistic approach to that conflict than some argued that the circumstances dictated. The president offered no timeline for peace, but a firm view that a Palestinian state remains within reach.

“What I told him is start by listening, because all too often the United States starts by dictating — in the past on some of these issues — and we don’t always know all the factors that are involved,” Obama said. “What we want to do is to listen, set aside some of the preconceptions that have existed and have built up over the last several years. And I think if we do that, then there’s a possibility at least of achieving some breakthroughs.” 

Obama’s interview was marked by attempts to sympathize with the concerns of ordinary Muslims, particularly on the question of living conditions in the West Bank. But he sought a conciliatory tone throughout the interview, at one point avoiding even restating American policy, and his own platform, than an Iranian nuclear weapon is plainly unacceptable.

“Will the United States ever live with a nuclear Iran? And if not, how far are you going in the direction of preventing it?” asked the interviewer, Al Arabiya Washington Bureau Chief Hisham Melhem.

Obama responded only generally, expressing disapproval of an Iranian bomb but not the flat condemnation that is standard from American officials.

“You know, I said during the campaign that it is very important for us to make sure that we are using all the tools of U.S. power, including diplomacy, in our relationship with Iran,” he said. “Now, the Iranian people are a great people, and Persian civilization is a great civilization. Iran has acted in ways that’s not conducive to peace and prosperity in the region: their threats against Israel; their pursuit of a nuclear weapon which could potentially set off an arms race in the region that would make everybody less safe; their support of terrorist organizations in the past — none of these things have been helpful.”

During the campaign and transition periods, Obama’s condemnations of an Iranian nuclear weapon were more direct: “[T]heir development of nuclear weapons would be unacceptable,” Obama said on Meet the Press on December 7.

A senior Obama aide said Monday night that Obama had not changed his views on Iran.

Obama also signaled a move away from President Bush‘s confrontational, generalizing language. Melhem noted to Obama that “President Bush framed the war on terror conceptually in a way that was very broad, ‘war on terror,’ and used sometimes certain terminology that the many people — Islamic fascism. You’ve always framed it in a different way, specifically against one group called al Qaeda and their collaborators.”

“I think that you’re making a very important point. And that is that the language we use matters,” Obama replied. “[W]hat we need to understand is, is that there are extremist organizations — whether Muslim or any other faith in the past — that will use faith as a justification for violence. We cannot paint with a broad brush a faith as a consequence of the violence that is done in that faith’s name.

“And so you will I think see our administration be very clear in distinguishing between organizations like al Qaeda — that espouse violence, espouse terror and act on it — and people who may disagree with my administration and certain actions, or may have a particular viewpoint in terms of how their countries should develop,” he said. “We can have legitimate disagreements but still be respectful. I cannot respect terrorist organizations that would kill innocent civilians and we will hunt them down.”

Obama’s shift Monday was one of tone, not of policy, and he also affirmed America’s support for Israel.

“Israel is a strong ally of the United States. They will not stop being a strong ally of the United States. And I will continue to believe that Israel’s security is paramount,” he said. “But I also believe that there are Israelis who recognize that it is important to achieve peace. They will be willing to make sacrifices if the time is appropriate and if there is serious partnership on the other side.”

Obama’s interview plan was made public only Monday afternoon, and the interview, which concluded just after 6:00 p.m., was distributed to reporters in the evening and embargoed for release at 11:00 p.m.

Asked why Al Arabiya had been granted the president’s first interview, and aide said: “We want to communicate directly to the entire world America’s new foreign policy.”

IT IS ALSO IMPERIALISM WHICH PROMOTES ANTISEMITISM

 

We have noted the way that the whole of the Left, including even the group run by Sean Matgamma, engaged in an anti-Semitic screech at the time of the Gaza war.

 

What our questions to Matgamma on the pro Imperialist and racist Harry’s Place showed clearly that his group is pro Hamas and is in fact anti-Semitic. A matter of degrees this anti-Semitism.

 

But the Left is infested with anti-Semitism now.

 

Some do not like the word but it suits and it fits. When you have groups and individuals who are likening the Jews of Israel today to the Nazis of the Holocaust infamy then THAT IS ANTISEMITISM!

 

But it would be totally wrong to think that it is only these renegades from revolutionary socialism who spread anti-Semitism. That is the pro Imperialist position of Ted Belman, Sultan Knish and their like.

 

There are others. So who else is promoting anti-Semitism?

 

Top of our list goes George Bush Jnr and the whole of the Neocons movement. It was Bush who did 2 critical things against the Jews and against Israel their only Homeland.

 

  1. Bush was the first US president to come out openly and call for a Palestine state to be set up on historical Jewish land, historical in two senses, it was Judea which was the centre of their culture now the West Bank, and secondly this Palestine state is on land given by the League of Nations forerunner of the United Nations to the Jews in Versailles and in the San Remo Treaty of 1920
  2. Bush struck against Saddam and Iraq and left Iran alone. ISRAEL WAS OPPOSED TO THE BUSH WAR ON IRAQ. What Bush did was to remove the major rival for Iran in the area. Even though Saddam was a tyrant he was also a bitter enemy of Shia Islam and of Iran. THE IRAQ WAR GREATLY STRENGTHENED IRAN, HAMAS AND HIZBULLAH.

 

And it was this Bush regime, and the US Neocons, who crushed Serbia or who continued the repression of the Serbs begun by Clinton.

 

That meant also lining up with Islamofascism, in that case with the Islamofascist Izetbegovic, who was clearly from beginning to end a clerical Fascist.

 

And in crushing the Serbs the Neocons were crushing the Serbs as natural allies of the Jews.

 

The Clinton and Bush regimes were a disaster for Israel; and for Jews in every part of the world and ushered in the great danger of a Holocaust and destruction of Israel under Obama.

 

Please see our separate article on how close in actuality is US Imperialism under Obama to the Islamofascists who hate Israel so.

 

That is the general trend under Bush and Obama. They may both say they support Israel etc, but those are words. Underneath the surface the reality is ALWAYS different to words.

 

It is our task to uncover the objective processes underneath the froth of politics and Media.

THE LEFT HAS BECOME FASCIST ANTISEMITES…4international ALONE IS TROTSKYIST

by Felix Quigley

January 26, 2009

After the demonstrations against Israel in which Islamists and Leftists were carrying clearly anti-Semitic images on their placards there is now no way back for the so called “Left” and a new, completely new leadership must be created.

 

Note…Anti-Semitism is promoted and carried forward by more than Islam and the Left. But on the demos it was the left and Islamist who were promoting this anti-Semitism.

 

Anybody who likens in any small way or big way Israel to the Nazis IS AN ANTISEMITE.

 

Got that! Can we on 4international make that any clearer? And therefore we pledge ourselves to fight these anti-Semites politically.

 

One individual called Sean Matgamma some thought was making a move away from this anti-Semitism. However the pro Imperialist Oliver Kamm inspired Harry’s Place offered a lot to his movement to place their views on the Gaza wars and demonstrations.

 

It emerged essentially as a anti-Semitic piece itself and I proved this by my challenge on Harry’s Place to Matgamma. There was no answer. This has got some significance to put it mildly. It means that there is not other political tendency which can genuinely call itself as following the principles of Leon Trotsky but this site 4international.

 

THE GAZA WAR SHOWS THE WOLVES ARE GATHERING AT THE DOORS OF THE JEWS ONCE MORE

by Felix Quigley

January 19, 2009

The Jewish army of Israel was fighting for all progressive people in the world in the battle against Hamas. Hamas is such an obviously Fascist and Reactionary movement, one would think that the Jewish army of the IDF would be cheered from the rafters in every country. THE OPPOSITE HAPPENED. And this is the thing about this war that has to be explained, no half measures, the sharpest conclusions have to be reached

 

  1. We on 4international support the high spirits of the Israeli army cadets as they withdrew knowing that they had defeated the Fascists and that they were going home safe to their beloved JEWISH HOMELAND. The surly and cowardly unleashing of 5 rockets on Israel by Hamas after the ceasefire and their empty guff about no truce until Israel totally withdraw shows them up for the windbags that they are. Of course they will fire more, Israel will continue to be hit by rockets and the Media will be silent. Imagine the Hamas leader emerging out of his bunker under an Israeli built hospital in Gaza and proclaiming victory! Imagine the political pygmy Ahmadinejad congratulating them on their victory!!! Hamas was beaten off the ball park by far superior fighters and that is not counting the technological power of Israel. The fact is that the Israeli youth went in to the back streets of Hamas land, took them on their own ground and beat the dickens out of them. Hamas are cowardly terrorists, it is one thing strapping on a vest in the stupid and insipid belief of 72 virgins at the end, that is many Jews will die but THEY will be all right is about the sum of it, and it is quite another thing facing true national fighters. The true national fighters were the Jews. The phoniness of Media construct “Palestinianism” was exposed. The Jews of Israel have thus taken a major step forward into the new era of defending their state, their religion and their age old customs.
  2. This unfortunately is not the end of the story. What also emerged in this war was the sight of major anti-Semitic demonstrations taking place in Europe, Canada and America. In opposition to these very large demonstrations there were small demos of very courageous in the main Jewish people living in these countries. And these, Toronto being a case in point, were threatened by the Fascist “Palestinians” while the police told the Jews that they the police would not or could not protect them!
  3. There was very little else which was able to pose an alternative to these reactionary forces that were holding on their marches the most anti-Semitic of slogans that has been seen since the 1930s. This is not the result of the Jewish war in Gaza, this is because the Jews are fighting to defend their way of life. In other words it is purely and totally anti-Semitism. It just did not mysteriously happen that in January of 2009 that these hordes of many stupid, uneducated and bigoted against Jews people took to the streets of major and not so major towns and capitals in Europe and North America. It did not happen in the slightest spontaneously. This had been worked for and prepared for consciously over many decades.
  4. The theme on all of the “Palestinian” demos against the Jews and Israel was that the Jews are the new Nazis. This is the essence in fact of all of the propaganda now surrounding Israel. It is in actual fact an extension of the Big Lie itself that the Nazis promulgated all those years ago.
  5. This Big Lie has been carried on since 1945 by these… Firstly by the Arab and Muslim oil fuelled forces in the world. Secondly by the Stalinist Communist Parties out of Moscow and Peking, now joined by Chavez, Morales etc. These are now joined by renegades from Trotskyism who by their actions trample on historical fact, since as we know Trotsky supported the Jewish state and opposed Islam.
  6. How were these anti-Semitic marches against Israel organized? Well specifically from the above two main constituencies. Let us spend a moment to look more closely at them.
  7. Firstly from the hordes of Muslims, Palestinian Arabs and others who are in every European and American country. They were the backbone of the marches. These are not ordinary refugees into a country. These marches showed that they were people who had come with a mission. These Palestinian, Arab, other marchers were carrying on the streets of Europe anti-Semitic placards, placards which were hate mongering. And the key thing is they were not only allowed to do so by the forces of the state, it is against most laws of most states, but a blind eye was turned on these hate filled and anti-Semitic messages by the Media. An example of this I saw with my own eyes…At the head of one march I saw in Murcia city were Muslim women clad in their repressive gear and they were pushing prams, quite deliberately carrying on the lying propaganda against Jews, that Jews kill children, consciously using the Blood Libel. On these marches and on every interview and every bulletin was the message that Jews kill Children.
  8. Secondly these Muslim reactionaries were joined and led by the Left, but this was a very strange kind of left figure, here as a Trotskyist I assert most strongly that these were not in any way Left of centre at all, but were as right wing as were Hitler’s storm troopers. The Left has joined the Fascists.

 

So be absolutely certain. Not anti-Semitism in general in Europe and America. But anti-Semitism promoted by very specific agencies which I have identified above. Otherwise how can you explain that the British workers are opposed to Islam and they in general take up a position which is progressive and right.

 

The task of Trotskyists is thus to give hope and leadership to the great mass and not to allow these Fascists of Muslims and Left to take over. To pass off the mass as anti-Semitic in general absolves who says that from doing anything.

 

We now turn to the War, where we are now, what is the next step.

 

The Jewish side were hampered, and remain hampered in everything that they do by a false humanitarianism and an inability to understand the laws of war. In war there is no such thing as civilians. All civilians in a war are part of the war combatants. The women pushing prams, and pushing the old anti Jew canard of the Blood Libel, were as much part of the war effort as was Hamas. It was precisely these Gaza civilians who gave Hamas the water to swim in. This is so obvious it hardly needs stating.

 

The Jewish side is also hampered by bourgeois type leaders who want to appear respectable on the world stage of diplomacy. There is nothing respectable in war. If the Fascists drive us to make war then the only imperative is to win it. The Israeli leaders in this war never escaped this faux “humanitarianism”. That means the war was not ended and more lives will in the future be lost.

 

Also it emerged in the War that Israel is being totally isolated and this is the same kind of isolation that happened before the last Holocaust in the 1930s.

 

Thus it now crystallizes clearly that the main issue is that the Jews are being thus isolated, lied about, insulted and in reality being set up for a new Holocaust.

 

I know about Spain and I know about Ireland.

 

Let us take Spain where I am at present living. Let me talk a little about this stupid people who do not seem to have grasped the most salient points in their own history.

 

To me feeling the atmosphere of Jew Hatred in this country today it seems as if it was only yesterday that the Jews were driven out of Spain and forced to convert to Christianity. These essentially stupid, hard nosed and hard hearted people seem to have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.

 

I am drawn to this regrettable but firm conclusion. This country is a centre of anti-Semitism. The UGT and CCOO trade unions had strangely a separate large demo against the crisis. The very same anti-Semitic forces march on the crisis! But it will take much to defeat anti-Semitism in this country, a nation of imbeciles who are totally ignorant of their history.

 

How can they atone for their history when they are stupid and ignorant. Spain remains a tool of the Vatican, a tool of the reactionary Labourites like Zapatero, and a tool of the Stalinists now morphed into the IU.

 

Oh and my goodness I forgot their bullfighting and their toreador bullshit and a simple truth that I have learned, farmers keeping their beautiful dogs tethered on 6 foot leads from birth to death, the whole country is the worst of the worst zoos imaginable. You could not actually invent this stuff it is so cruel. With heir anti-Semitism and cruelty to their animals they can take their faux merriment and stick it where the sun never shines.

 

Perhaps Jews can get their revenge on the Spanish anti-Semites. Let us keep announcing in their bars that 1 in every 5 of them are Jews! Good revenge medicine that!

 

As for Ireland I do not have to spend too long on it. The Irish catholic nationalists are anti-Semitic to the core but to make it worse they are ungrateful and ungracious anti-Semites. Long forgotten by these essentially bog men and women who persecuted not just Jews but every decent artistic talent that the nation produced are the Briscoe family. It was Ben Briscoe who fought alongside Michael Collins for Irish national liberation against the cruelty of the British. Now forgotten, trampled over by these anti-Semitic cretins.

 

So let us look to the future.

 

What was absent in this war in Gaza was a Trotskyist Party which can fight inside the country of Israel and inside every country in the rest of the world that the Jews must have a Homeland and that this Homeland must be a respite from anti-Semitism.

 

I feel that the wolves are gathering at the door of the Jews once more. The fight of Leon Trotsky to protect the Jews in the 1930s has been lied about. Anybody who lies about this today will be our enemy. In it lies the salvation of the Jews and in nowhere else.

A REVIEW OF THE GAZA WAR…CENTRAL ISSUE IS ANTISEMITISM WHICH LIVES ON

The essential issue is that Israel is fighting against an antisemitic monster. I feel myself that Israel cannot win this on its own, it may delay its destruction by Arab and Islamist antisemitism, but Israel is crying out for us in the rest of the world to come to its assistance.

The central challenge in the bravery of the Israeli soldiers who fight Fascist Hamas is for us to come to the aid of Israel.

A number of things have stood out in this war

 

  1. Israel is fighting for its life. No nation can continue to exist if it cannot stop its land being attacked day after day. For eight years rockets have been coming from Gaza into Israel.
  2. At the same time Hamas is the agent of Iran which threatens to obliterate Israel.
  3. It was immediately clear that the soldiers and commanders of Israel had a new confidence. They made it clear that they were attacking only Hamas. The first attack on the Hamas Barracks killed nearly 200 of the enemy. They could not hide this in the resultant Arab press because they were all “uniformed” up.
  4. The attack on Hamas has been hard and cruel as it should be in any war. The IDF has hit Hamas so hard and so often that they could not mount any fake Press fakes like happened in Qana, exposed thoroughly by English website EU Referendum
  5. Israel propagandists keep on asking the outside world, how to stop the rocket attacks on our country and what you would do in a similar situation if it was your country. None have been able to answer except the anti-Semitic answer, you are Jews and you asked for it. So the victim becomes victimized.
  6. Meanwhile as the pictures flow on what a blogger called the “continuous anti-Semitic screech” from the BBC, Israel is foolishly concerned about civilians, but asks the question “What would you do. How to stop the rockets on our people” We are back where we were before, there is no answer to this except an anti-Semitic answer.
  7. Almost total unity in Israel. Once again the Israel self haters of Peace Now silenced. This is a new Israel. This is an Israel with the Iran nuclear threat hanging over it. All Jews will act to prevent their own incineration
  8. The Israeli warriors of the IDF have exposed the lousy fighters of Hamas who are really cowardly terrorists fed up on US and EU tax payers money via the corrupt UN. Given any half decent lead at the top the fighting qualities of the Jewish nation emerge. This is a people who in a miraculous way have built up the wonderful Israel of today. The opposite has emerged as well. It has shown the cowards of the Arab Palestinians for what they are. This is not explosive vest and 72 virgin scenario. Here they have had to stand and fight. But these Arabs are spongers who have been living off the largesse of UN dole for generations, that is the taxpayers, that is the workers’ wages of America and Europe. That means you and I chum we have built up this anti-Semitic monster. Handed to them on the proverbial plate by the anti-Semitic leaders in these Governments at the top of these states. The whole anti-Semitic shebang is exploded into bits by one good thrust from the Israeli warriors, the young men and women of the IDF who are fighting for their national state
  9. The certain future…Hamas will be resurrected by the US and EU Governments and of course by the Arab and Islamic anti-Semitism.  Let us be clear why. Anti-Semitism in the West is not dead. Just watch those governments in US and EU hustle to resurrect Hamas. Watch the Press lie. At best Israel fighters have won a breathing space.
  10. We can now also trust the Israeli leaders of Livni, Barak and Olmert to do precisely the wrong thing. This is a replay almost of 1967 and shows that as long as Arabs are in these areas they will attack Jews. Against all the interests of the Jews these leaders will withdraw.
  11. The correct policy to fight for…Israel can not withdraw from Gaza and will have to occupy not only Gaza but also the West Bank until this issue of anti-Semitic Arabs trying to kill Jews endures. This is because Fatah and Hamas only represent the anti-Semitic Arabs, and do not replace the anti-Semitic Arabs.
  12. The Media has hidden just how totally the IDF has defeated Hamas in every department of war. This is not a matter of equipment. Hamas are terrorists, they live off the UN dole, do not have to work for a living, beget children and the UN picks up the tab etc. The Jews won because they fight for their nation. So therefore the Media will resurrect Hamas. The Media is totally anti-Semitic and needs Hamas.
  13. Fatah remains an even more deadly anti-Semitic force and threat than Hamas bluster ever was. And Fatah is created by Britain, built up by the US, and now trained and equipped by the US and by EU money and technology
  14. Israel remains at war directly with the 350 millions in the Arab world and with the 1300 millions in the Islamic world. Israeli Jews are about 5 million strong. The war demos have showed a large Palestinian Arab anti-Semitic gang in every city in Europe and in most cities of America. They are joined by so called “Left” traitors to socialism who all carry anti-Semitic placards and say that Israelis are Nazis. That is Jews are Nazis. This is an unequal and unfair battle and Israel is crying out for help to defeat these Fascist anti-Semites.
  15. You live in these countries. What will you do?
