The Israeli Government and the IDF has made another cardinal error. The way that Netanyahu and the IDF approached this job shows that they are unable to win any real fight against reaction.

From what I have seen on television today of the boarding of the boats by the IDF this is clear

1. Boarding from helicopters is totally wrong. The terrorists and terrorist supporters (supporters of Hamas and Fatah) were ready, waiting and expecting

2. No stun grenades or smoke blankets were used. This threw the valuable IDF Jewish life into considerable danger and placed them at a disadvantage

The whole episode reminds me of the way,half-hearted and naive, that the past Israeli Governments have fought against Hamas and Hizbullah

4international is a Trotskyist, revolutionary socialist movement. We standin thesame traditions as the man who built the Red Army and fought the Civil War against reactionary “Whites”.

We have no time for pacifism or for not taking the war to our enemies.

Hamas has declared war on Israel. Hizbullah threatens Jews with death. Iran is building the nuclear bomb to obliterate Zionism.

Obama is doing everything to strip Israel of its defences, especially of its nuclear weapons, and to strip Israel of its strategic land.

Turkey is mobilizing openly with Syria and Iran.

The Lebanon Government is allowing Hizbullah take over the country to join in with Syria in war from the North.

Obama pulls out of Iraq giving an Iranian Iraqi alliance clear path from the East.

Egypt is ready to join with Hamas through the Philadelphia Corridor at anyu strategic point.

At this point Mairead Maguire and her motley flotilla, all great friends of Hamas, hove into sight over the med waves.

Loaded with hundreds of Israel haters from Ireland and every other disgraceful antisemitic country in Europe.

All as part of this war against Israel because there is no division in war between propaganda and action.

Yes indeed, the IDF did chose the wrong action.

They once again as in Jenin should have stood off, for the umpteenth time given their warnings no further.

Then the IDF navy should have simply torpedoed Maguire and co and allowed them to swim to the waiting Turkish ships.

And if Turkey wants a war then let them have it right there and then.

The Netanyahu Government is showing by actions such as this that it is unable to make a sober analysis of the enemy, whether it be these people like Maguire so full of hatred for little Israel, or whether it be the official paymasters in the White House of Maguire et al.

the Netanyahu  Ministers and the IDF seriously underestimated this situation. they placed the IDF youth in jeopardy when they had no need to do slo.ful of well placed shells would have sunk the whole of the rotting antisemitic lot to the bottom of the sea. let these wierdos of the fake left try out their swimming strokes as they make their way to their true home, the navy of Islam religious freak, Erdogan of Turkey.

Israel is NOW in full scale war, first of all against the Obama regime, second against Britain and Ireland, third against the rest of Europe, fourth against Stalinist Russia and China, and only last against the Arabs and Islam wierdos of this world.

Furthermore it is very clear that this politically correct IDF leadership is unable to make one correct move.

There has to NOW be a total breaking down between these IDF leaders, the IDF as a separate body, and the whole of the Israeli population.

Israel now no longer needs a separate and professional army. It needs to keep that, keep those gains, but it needs to train every single Israeli man and woman,and above all all youth, in how to shoot with rifle and how to man the tank crews.

Israel has correctly positioned its nuclear armed submarine off the side of Iran, a wise move indeed. inadequate.

Israel must come clear now with he existence of its some 300 nuclear weapons, and insist that other countries are being judged by the actions of their leaders.

This means that the American people must be told tha their President Obama has made America a target. Similarly with all countries of Europe especially with Spain which protects Hizbullah in South of Lebanon. And so on.

This is the time for the brave, and for not waiting. Take the initiative.

Obama must be told to butt out, remove Mitchell, remove all aid to Fatah, remove the American troops from the Negev etc.

4international insist that a nuclear war in the world is ion no way inevitable. That is the programme of the bankrupt.

But if Israel is not decisive, if it does not act decisively NOW, then Nuclear War will indeed be inevitable.

Remember the military training of every single one of Israel´s Jews must begin right now, WITHOUT ANY DELAY

Furthermore you cannot train at making war while engaging in the mouthing off at Israel engaged in by Israeli professors, by the Israeli supreme court, by labourists, by stalinists in the communist party, by peaceniks like Olmert´sfamilhy and so on

This means a dictatorship, meaning that the dictates of Israeli survival must be placed at the top.

the Israeli Media must be closed down with the exception of Debkafile and Israel National News. All the rest closed down and taken over by the youthful journalists.

And as regards the Arabs in Israel. Let them stay only if they will fight against Hamas and Fatah. In a war you cannot have enemies in your rear.

The demands of the situation make all of these measures no more than common sense.

The Trotskyist Party must and will be built. But note, we will join with any Israeli and religious Jewish patriots, without conditions, to face the common enemy


This is an important week for Israel because of these reasons

  1. Every week for Israel is important because every week that passes by without Israel making a war on the Nazi forces of Mullah Iran is a week lost
  2. This week, on Tuesday, Netanyahu the PM of Israel is slated to meet with Obama


Caroline Glick has got a fantastic analysis of the meeting with Obama and how this intercuts with the need to make a war on Iran.

Jews have to decide and internalize: Die later but soon. Or strike now.

The great danger to Israel is silence, the silence of the Nazis in the BBC, of the Nazis in the faux left groups like SWP.

There are many lies in silence and what they are all lying about is that Obama is actually holding Israel back from actually dealing with Iran.

They are all suggesting that the US is going to attack Iran. What a rotten lie! It is the exact opposite. America is holding Israel back.

That is the issue with Netanyahu.

Caroline Glick makes this very plain. Caroline wants Netanyahu to meet Obama as an equal, to be independent, to assert the rights of Israel.

There are reasons why this is not possible for Netanyahu to do.

Jewish people like Caroline have a great ability to keep hoping for the best. This is partly because through the experience of the Jews the worst has been too awful to contemplate.

The real reason why Netanyahu cannot assert the independence of Israel is that as a capitalist “concern” it is tied together with the rest of the capitalist world, and there are thus ideological threads which tie Netanyahu to Obama, even as Netanyahu knows very well how anti Israel is Obama.

There are only two types of leaderships which can do that:

The first is the religious Jewish. This is where the real hatred for Obama first surfaced. They saw through Obama first because they are not so tied in with materialist capitalism, and Obama was a phoney black materialist middle class ruthless entity.

The second is Trotskyist, this party, 4international.

We start from the perspective that the capitalist SYSTEM is in a deep and historical crisis, with emphasis on the word “historical”.

If you do not understand the meaning of “historical” in this situation suggest you reread that poetry in motion, the Communist Manifesto, written in 1848, it could have been written this morning.

We have nothing to learn about Obama. While others were crowing about him being black we said what does that matter, he is a President of the crisis of capitalism.

We ask: how many defenceless creatures are perishing (in their millions surely) in the Mexican Gulf waters as we speak?

What a rotten system is capitalism. They drill deep for oil. They do not prepare a replacement, just keep drilling for profit.

They cannot even put in place a proper system of regulation. No fall back plans if an accident happens.

Actually Obama is totally exposed on this. People in Louisiana have grown to hate this man. First he was washing his hands of the accident, it was all responsibility of BP. Now he is mouthing and pretending to be sad etc.

Obama is desperate for a victory somewhere. That is all that Netanyahu has to do. Listen to Obama. Say nothing. Go home. Save Israel.

Actually there is one statement that Netanyahu should make. That is that any country (think US, think Russia, think Germany, think UK) that threatens Israel let them be aware that Israel has some 200 plus nuclear bombs, and the means to deliver, and that Israel knows the targets.

The Goldstone was a pack of lies and it was also a threat to Israel.

A simple statement! Take only 25 seconds to read out. The message though will be liberating.

A religious Jew could make it. So could a Trotskyist Party that we are indeed building.

It would be far better if Netanyahu said nothing on Tuesday but said only that.

And if Israel is to survive it will have to be said.

(Readers are advised to read this analysis on the Spanish veil issue but also more on


Mention above to the religious Jews, to clarify, yes they could take a position, but they will remain isolated from the mass movement

Mention above to Caroline Glick, a fine writer

This is a sample from this latest article, rather more in the form of a report from Israel, that important!

[Start quote from Carline Glick here]

As part of the administration’s attempt to woo American Jews back into the Democratic fold despite its anti-Israel policies, last week a group of pre-selected pro-Obama rabbis was invited to the White House for talks with Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel and with Dan Shapiro and Dennis Ross who hold the Palestinian and Iran dossiers on Obama’s National Security Council. According to a report of the meeting by Rabbi Jack Moline which has not been refuted by the White House, the three men told the Democratic rabbis that the administration has three priorities in the Middle East. First Obama seeks to isolate Iran. Second, he seeks to significantly reduce the US military presence in the Middle East, particularly in Iraq. And third, he seeks to resolve the Palestinian conflict with Israel.

These priorities are disturbing for a number of reasons. First, isolating Iran is not the same as preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. By characterizing its goal as “isolating” Iran, the administration makes clear that preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons is not its goal. Moreover, as Iran’s deal with Brazil and Turkey makes abundantly clear, Iran is not isolated. Indeed, its foreign relations have prospered since Obama took office.

The danger to Israel comes from many fronts

1. There is the antisemitism in the Arab and Islamic world, which as a reading of Jihadwatch and indeed many writers today (especially John Bostom) show goes right back to the latter part of Mohammed´s life, and to his followers who came after him. (The Islamic idea of “abrocation” must be understood). The basis and basics of Islam are not understood at all except by a very few people, and I know at least one very right wing Jewish person who does not wish to know.

2.The antisemitism in the Christian world, which is not so openly obvious as that of the Muslims, but is a kind of latent antisemitism which breaks out like a volcano at times of stress. No less dangerous!

Then there are the forces of Stalinism and revisionism. Stalinism itself was a revisionism of the principles of revolutionary socialism. Modern day revisionism is contained in what is called the Left, but obviously cannot be true socialists.

But above all there are the forces of American capitalism or Imperialism, and with that equally though not quite so forward is the  capitalism of Europe.

Underpinning all of this antisemitism, as an ideology and as a kind of religion actually is: (let´scall it Palestinianism)

How many know that palestinianism as we experience it today had a beginning sometime around 1968? How many understand well, or even half well, the conditions that brought this forward.

How many know that the very patriotic Jews called themselves Palestinian inhabitants in the period of the Mandate, from 1922 to 1948, and some time before that and after it too.

How many people know today that antisemitism has been used as a tool by the ruling classes in every epoch, under slavery, under feudalism, under capitalism.

Read the Communist Manifesto by Marx, that little poetry type work, and you will understand that capitalism is different. Capitalism has been revolutionary, its methods are revolutionary, and thus is all encompassing.

There is some work done recently on the thousands of world languages and how they are disappearing. Not by magic there is a reason and the real reason is the power of capitalism and imperialism, and their demands to make a profit in every situation, especially in periods of deep crisis in their system.

capital must find a profit.

That is the essence of the work of Marx not only in that little treatise, poetic in nature, but in his vast accounting of capital.

Antisemitism as i said has always been used by ruling groups throughout history. In 1939 to 45 this took on a condition of industrial killing of Jews. Who said that would be the pinnacle of this killing? 60 more years and 60 more years of capitalism ageing, why would the next not surpass in brutality even that nazi episode, the world having had a foretaste in the past 20 years of suppression of Serbs through lies and foul murder.

I finish with one question:

How are the Jews through their leaderships prepared this time? Are the leaders of Jews in Israel and in the Diaspora prepared?

That IS the question. How can the Jewish people be prepared for what is happening now, is rapidly developing, and in the near future?


We on 4international received in our email this plea which we fully support because it is true that Obama (Bush and all the others also) is betraying the concepts of the great American “bourgeois” revolution on which such great gains as the First Amendment etc were based, and this betrayal is very much concentrated on the Obama alliance with Muslim countries (as shown in the Cairo speech) against Israel, and indeed the great danger to Israel from a whole combination of forces.

It is addressed to fellow defenders of Israel and there is an urgency about it which we like, even though we do have serious differences because the author tends to lump together the American ruling Imperialists along with the ordinary people, who include the American working class, and this leads to terrible confusion and in the end a blind alley for Israel and Jews.

[Begin letter sent to 4international here]

Israel is in peril – and with it America’s security.

For the first time in Israel’s existence, we have a president who is determinedly working against Israel and our indispensible alliance. Barack Obama has pressured Israel to surrender to the demands of her enemies (and ours), and turns a blind eye toward the real threat of Iranian nukes. He has shown bald-faced contempt for Israel’s democratically elected prime minister, while bowing and scraping to her thuggish enemies.

We must act now to stop the Obama administration’s betrayal of one of our most loyal and valuable allies. Make no mistake: when Israel falls to Islamic enemies, we are not far behind. To our enemies, Israel is the Little Satan and America is the Great Satan, and both of us must be destroyed.

The Freedom Center has been fighting on Israel’s side for over 20 years. And now, as the crisis deepens with Obama’s intensifying hostility, we are stepping up our response by publishing a new pamphlet – “Barack Obama’s War Against the Jews” – to focus attention on the critical position in which the Obama administration has put Israel.

We need to raise $150,000 in order to get this pamphlet to press and distribute half a million of them into the hands of Congress, the media, community groups, college students around the country through our campus network, public officials, activists, and ordinary citizens. Will you help us meet this goal?

Please follow this link right away to make a contribution if $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to support this campaign. With your contribution of $25 or more, I will send you a copy of “Barack Obama’s War Against the Jews” when it is released.

Publishing this hard-hitting pamphlet will show how wrong headed the White House is in its scorn for Israel’s security needs. “Barack Obama’s War Against the Jews” documents the way in which the President has methodically undercut Israeli security and used American power not to defend this fellow democracy but to weaken it. I guarantee that you will be surprised and appalled by how determined the White House campaign against Israel has been.

We will not sit idly by and allow history to repeat itself with another genocide, this one masterminded by the mullahs of Iran. Please support our campaign today with your contribution of $25, $50 or more. Any amount you can give will help.

Israel needs our help. But America also needs Israel’s help. If Israel can no longer trust us, we will lose perhaps our most important partner in the war that Islamo-Fascists are waging against both of us – one whose intelligence resources have enabled us to prevent carnage within our own borders. We must act now to preserve this alliance that has served both countries so well over so many years.

Please stand beside me once again in this important battle.


David Horowitz
President & Founder

P.S. For your contribution of $25 or more, I will send a copy of “Barack Obama’s War Against the Jews,” a new pamphlet to be published, and I will keep you up to date on where the pamphlet has been distributed and its impact.


With the exception of Debkafile and INN the Israeli Press is a sorry thing indeed.

 I take the following few paragraphs from a writer on Haaretz which is the very worst tf the lot, an organization which cares little about how many it sells in Israel, because it is only writing for the antisemites abroad.

[Start extract from Haaretz writer here]

The threat of the occupation is no less severe than the threat of rocket fire. The settlers are extending their reach by the day, as the complexities of the territories grow ever more complex. The Palestinians are slowly pulling back from the two-state solution, and the implementation of that solution is growing increasingly more difficult. The international community is showing increasingly more impatience with one of the two states. Because of the occupation, the demographic situation of the state of the Jews is intolerable, and the state’s moral situation is disgraceful. Because of the occupation, the political threat looms ever larger. Time is working against the State of Israel.

That’s not what the right thinks, though. The right is still spreading the word that, apart from one or two things, everything’s just fine. After all, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu managed to put the brakes on U.S. President Barack Obama for a time. After all, Israel was approved for membership in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. The economy is flourishing, summer’s almost here, and life is grand. Just as immigration from Russia saved us in the 1990s and high tech saved us in the following decade, the natural gas fields that have been discovered and those yet to be discovered will save us in the next decade. Israeli vitality will prove itself yet again. It will soon become clear that we can live perfectly well even in an impossible situation. The doomsayers can talk all they want, but everything will be fine. There’s nothing to worry about, nowhere to rush off to. If we don’t give in, Abu Mazen will give up. If we don’t blink, Obama will disappear. Don’t worry, promises the right, the State of Israel has time on its side.

The real argument is the one concerning time. The right believes that Israel has plenty of time, because time gives Israel the opportunity to create facts on the ground. The right believes that Israel was established as a fact on the ground, and will succeed as a fact on the ground.

carried on


The writer above uses this false terminology left and right.

He refers to the Jews settling in Judea and Samaria as being the Right. The correct terminology is Jewish patriots. If I add to that it is with the adjectives, realistic, for example, about the reality of the Islam Jihad against jews in Palestine, which did not begin yesterday!

Yet notice how the writer is so content and happy to use this term The Right

You see that term The Right has got certain connotations. the writer is drawing in aspects like the American capitalist class, which conducted the unpopular war against Iraq.

Or the Right which denies the global heating of the planet.

Or the Right which destroys wildlife as in Louisiana (BT action which has led to the killing of millions of our fellow creatures on earth)

You see the writer on Haaretz is happy to do just that.

Now this situation is made much worse when there are writers on Israpundit who have an agenda on this score,they are firm adherents of perhaps:

US Imperialism

capitalism as a whole

the idea that there is no global heating

the idea that the many scientists who prove so are frauds etc

And these writers on Israpundit take great care to label these JEWISH TRAITORS as leftists.

If the Left did have an effect it was the “Left” as in Stalinism and enemies of revolutionary socialism.

Yes it is confusing. But the confusion has been deliberately planted!


It is very important to understand that the name left wing is misused in relation to Israel.

It is far more accurate to refer to these as traitors to Israel, or as traitors to the Jews.

Just last week there was a full page article in El Pais in Spain by Ilan Pappe. This was totally filled with lies, especially lies which centred on two key periods, 1948 and 1967.

Pappe is often thought of as a leftist in Israel and in the Diaspora. This thought runs incredibly deep.

I have argued on Israpundit as well as on this site many, many times that people like Pappe are not left, rather they are Jewish traitors.

This applies across the board and not just to Pappe.

There is one aspect where left is possibly involved but here the difference between social democracy and revolutionary socialism, and between Stalinism and revolutionary socialism, must enter the discussion and be understood.

Here enters another aspect of the problem.

A website like Israpundit and others like Atlas Shrugs, Jihadwatch are staffed by people who are complete advocates of capitalism, I mean of course of Imperialism.

They enter the fray with their own politics and part of this politics is to do down the socialist agenda at every point that they can.

There is something within Judaism which does force people to be against communists (here I mean revolutionary socialism and not the various Stalinist movements)

All of these religions are conservative and serve the status quo.

That is a basic starting point. I am not suggesting here that Judaism is not progressive in many ways. And Christianity was an oppressor of Judaism. Now Islam is an oppressor not only of Judaism, but also of Christianity.

There is the memory of the rabbi who stated to Trotsky that the Trotskys make the revolutions but the Bronsteins pay for it.

The best hope for the Jews was to join in with the Bolsheviks in 1917 and some of the youth among the Jews did just that. Was Eisenstein the famous film director not Jewish. (I will check spellings later)

The Bolsheviks of Lenin were progressive and revolutionary, the one hope for the future, but they were not the finished article, how could they be. their thought of Jews integrating was a blow against Judaism and the Jews as a Nation.

But these anti communist Jews of the present I find are very selective in their treatment of history. They hide that the Bolsheviks passed a law that antisemitism was punishable BY DEATH.

They also leave this out:

That mistake of Lenin of 1917. That mistake of Trotsky of 1917. Those should be seen in the context of their hatred of antisemitism.


This is quite frankly where websites like Israpundit are buggered.

They only give us a little bit of “their” history.

We on 4international are proud to be Trotskyists. We search for the truth of history and we will not adapt it for anybody´s public consumption. That is Stalinism. That is Imperialism.

These thoughts were spurred by reading an article on “democracy” just now on Israpundit.

Called “The battle for democracy” by Asher Fredman, Ynet



Obama on Daniel Pearl

Pamela Geller put it succinctly: “Pearl was beheaded because of Islamic anti-semitism and violent jihadi doctrine. Freedom of the press had nothing to do with it.” And the incomparable Melanie Phillips has more: “What Daniel Pearl’s decapitation means to Barack Obama,” from The Spectator, May 22 (thanks to Inexion):

Even given Obama’s ever more terrifying and lethal performance in office, his comments about the jihadi murder of Daniel Pearl, and in front of Daniel’s bereaved family, are simply astounding. This is what Obama said:

‘Obviously, the loss of Daniel Pearl was one of those moments that captured the world’s imagination because it reminded us of how valuable a free press is.’

Daniel Pearl was not murdered because he was a journalist. He was decapitated because he was an American Jew. Khalid Sheikh Mohamed cut off his head in an act of unimaginable barbarism, which was videoed in order to incite other Muslims to similar acts of barbarism and to destroy the will of the west to defend itself. But in signing the Daniel Pearl Press Freedom Act, Obama came up with the remarkable statement that the significance of Daniel Pearl’s murder was merely that

it reminded us of how valuable a free press is.

Any decent and rational person would think that the significance of Daniel Pearl’s murder was actually that the west is up against a psychopathic death cult which has a particular aim of killing Jews and destroying America. But not the American President. In front of the Pearl family, Obama couldn’t even bring himself to say Daniel was murdered. And ‘one of those moments that captured the world’s imagination’??


This was the analysis by David Toube on the role of George Galloway who is suing Toube.

these things are clear:

galloway was a leader of the Viva palestine convoy to gaza

On reaching Gaza galloway was seen and photographed handing over a large sum of money to the leader of Hamas.

Now remember that in Europe the leader of Hamas is illegal because Hamas is illegal. It does not matter what Galloway says the money was for, it was handed to a leader of an illegal organization.

Surely that was illegal.

So then, why did the police in Britain not arrest galloway and charge him for an illegal activity. I mean the police are very quick to prosecute you if you use a mobile phone in your car, or any one of hundred such things.

That is the main question concerning Gallowahy and he knows it as the following analysis by DavidT made clear

[Begin analysis by David Toube re his suing by Galloway here]

The first thing that Toube does is list the various characters that Galloway dealt with in the course of this Viva Palestine trip to Gaza. All of them listed by Toube were members and leaders of Hamas. The following is just one sample. See the rest on the link below, also pictures:

Finally, what does Galloway have to say about Sabah al Mukhtar, his “right hand man” and a former trustee of Viva Palestina, who said:

At one time or another there was this talk of the Protocol of Zion and everybody said that it was a put-up job, it’s not true, it is not factual, all sorts of accusations of this book. But at the end of the day, let’s assume they are all correct, that this is really not a real book and it was not the Protocols of Zion. This is an incredible insight, some hundred years ago, to show what the position nowadays. The control over the media, the education, the law, the medicine.


For a man who describes himself in the letter before action as “consistently anti-racist and not remotely anti-Semitic”, his choice in “right hand men” is rather peculiar.

So, why is Galloway bothering with this?

I can only assume that he hopes to argue that it was he as an individual, rather than Viva Palestina, who gave money to Hamas. If those are the foundations of his case, they’re rather shaky. Even if there was a clear distinction between the work of Viva Palestina and the “personal” donations of its participants and leading members to Hamas officials, it is difficult to see how Galloway’s reputation has been damaged.

Perhaps Galloway and Ovenden will argue that they were not giving money to Hamas, but to the “elected government of Palestine”. There are a couple of problems with that. The first is that the acting government of Gaza – not of Palestine – is Hamas. Secondly, although Hamas won the Parliamentary elections, they did not win the Presidential elections. Rather, they took power following a coup.

There is a deeper problem here, of which Galloway is aware. Here it is, in Galloway’s own words:

I personally am about to break the sanctions on the elected government of Palestine.


I believe that david Toube has put his finger here on the issue.

As he handed the money across galloway was aware that he was breaking the sanctions, the sanctions being that hamas was made an illegal organization by Europe.

galloway is seeing himself as in the role of breaking this sanction.

Is he not therefore working in support of Hamas?

Terry Glavin in a blog called Chronicles and Dissent put it like this

[Begin quote from Terry Glavin here]

The Latest George Galloway Stunt: Expect More Lies.

Fiction, reported in the Globe and Mail: “I didn’t give any money to Hamas, I gave it to the ministry of health in Gaza to pay for the salaries of the doctors and nurses who hadn’t been paid. By the way, we’re talking about 20 odd thousand pounds, not millions. It’s a symbolic donation. I gave it to the ministry of health in Gaza and I’m proud to have done so.”

Fact, by Galloway’s own admission, broadcast on several Arab television stations: “I, now, here, on behalf of myself, my sister Yvonne Ridley, and the two Respect councillors – Muhammad Ishtiaq and Naim Khan – are giving three cars and 25,000 pounds in cash to Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh. Here is the money. This is not charity. This is politics.” Not charity, but politics. Not to “doctors and nurses who hadn’t been paid,” but to the Hamas gangster “Prime Minister” Ismail Haniyeh who, in fact, is not and was not the Prime Minister of Palestine.


If Galloway was really giving the money to the Minister of Health for hospitals why onearth would he not say so in handing it across.


It is really wierd stuff. But all you need to know is that Galloway is an enemy of the Jewish state along with so many of these who today call themselves left.

It is a major issue for socialism because how can true socialism be and remain branded by people like this.

In its broad aspect Galloway has slapped a libel action on David Toube, indirectly on the website Harry´s Place.

Galloway has demanded a large sum of money.

As you can see above his record is full of contradictions. But he is using these reactionary British Libel Laws which work in favour of people like Galloway.

4international unconditionally line up to defend David Toube, Harry´s Place, Andy Newman and his website and against Galloway every step of the way.


By Jim Stephens

May 19, 2010

The Russian Government of Putin and Medvedev are doing what Stalin did with Hitler, they are joining forces with Fascists

DEBKAfile researches make this very clear

Iranian teams train on S-300 interceptors at Russian bases
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report May 19, 2010

S-300 effective against air or missile attack

While joining the US in backing a softened UN Security Council sanctions package against Iran, Tuesday, May 18, Moscow is reported by debkafile’s military sources as surreptitiously training Iranian Revolutionary Guards crews at Russian bases to operate the advanced S-300 interceptor-missile systems, which are capable of fending off a potential US or Israel attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.

UN sources disclose that the new sanctions motion – in its present diluted form – does not expressly forbid the consignment of this weapon to Iran.

Moscow is withholding them from Tehran for now, keeping the promise prime minister Vladimir Putin gave President Barack Obama. But if and when the weapons are delivered, Iran will have trained crews ready to operate them.
In their push to develop military ties with Iran and its allies, the Russians earlier this month also agreed to sell Syria MiG-29 fighter jets, Pantsyr short-range air defense systems and armored vehicles in a major arms transaction.

Washington and Jerusalem have known about the presence of IRGC S-300 missile crews at Russian training bases since early May. But when Israeli president Shimon Peres raised the issue during his talks with President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow on May 9, he was told sharply that neither Israel nor any other government is entitled to tell Russia to whom it may give military assistance.
And when US diplomats in New York and Moscow were instructed to ask their opposite numbers whether the training program augured the shipment of the interceptors to Iran, notwithstanding Putin’s promise, they were greeted with deafening silence.
On May 11, the White House was worried enough to send the president’s nuclear adviser to tell reporters: “The United States has made clear to Russia that delivering a promised advance air defense system to Iran would have serious implications on US-Russian relations.”
This was the sternest admonition for Moscow to be heard ever from an Obama spokesman. This time, the Russians responded with equal abrasiveness. Foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, who was with President Medvedev in Ankara at the time, shot back: Moscow needs “no advice from across the ocean” about the sale of the S-300.
These less-than-diplomatic exchanges aside, the fact remains that Moscow’s consent to start training Iranian missile crews has strengthened Tehran’s hopes of the interceptors’ early delivery. The Iranians are even more encouraged by the success of the Russian-Chinese bid to delete from the UN sanctions draft any substantial expansion of the standing international arms embargo that might apply to the sophisticated S-300 anti-missile, anti-air system.


What this means is the following


1.The Obama and EU so called “strategy” of sanctions against Iran in order to rein it back from the Nuclear Bomb is in tatters.

2. The Russians and Chinese represent not “socialism” but Stalinism, in so far as the Russian rulers represent anything except reactionary nationalism with a large dollop of anti-Semitism thrown in.

3. The other side to this, and there is another side, is that the US has been encircling Russia and stirring up Jihad against China, as well as stirring up reactionary Tibetan Buddhism (the monks who oppressed the people of Tibet)

4. And an extension of (3) is that the Russians see with their own eyes the creation of Kosovo, the support for Tudjman, and the backing of Islam in the shape of Izetbegovic. Above all they see the attack on Georgia province South Ossetia in which a section of the Israeli state joined in with Saakashvili, which they see correctly as an extension of NATO AGAINST Russia.

5. Nobody said politics is simple. For every action there is a reaction. This includes the Israeli alliance with the US Governments, which in actual fact are the most dangerous of all the enemies of Israel.

Yet having said all of that the Russian regime of Putin is backing the Jihad against Israel conducted by the Arabs, Islamists and above all by the “Palestinians”.

This is why all of the antisemites on the Fascist and fake left of today are backing Russia at present.

What to do?

There is no easy way out. There is NO alternative except to build our movement, 4international, because in certain definite ways it is Stalinism still that the Jewish people of Israel are fighting

Medvedev shoots back that “Moscow needs no advice” about the selling of this weapon to Iran.

Medvedev is a reactionary fool. He is in fact joining in with the Iranian Jihad against Israel and in doing this he is also joining in with the Jihad in general, and specifically against his own people, the Russians.

But how can this be made known to Russians?

There is no simple answer. Part of it is

  • Fight against the betrayal of the present Left traitors to socialism
  • Build the alternative party of Trotskyism

This is a vital issue, report is by Ed Katz


Granting the right under international law for Jews to settle anywhere in western Palestine – the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea

Villa Devanche, San Remo, Italy Villa Devanche, San Remo, Italy
April 25, 1920 April 25, 2010

On the 24-25 of April 2010, the European Coalition for Israel conducted a number of educational seminars delivered by Eli Hertz from the United States and Solomon Benzimra from Canada . It was followed by a ceremony held in San Remo at the same house (Villa Devanche) where the signing of the San Remo declaration took place in 1920.

The event attracted politicians as well as grassroots activists from around Europe, the U.S., and Canada. Member of Knesset and Deputy Speaker Danny Danon also attended and delivered greetings from Jerusalem.

At the conclusion of the commemoration, the following statement was released:

“Reaffirming the importance of the San Remo Resolution of April 25, 1920 – which included the Balfour Declaration in its entirety – in shaping the map of the modern Middle East, as agreed upon by the Supreme Council of the Principal Allied Powers (Britain, France, Italy, Japan, and the United States acting as an observer), and later approved unanimously by the League of Nations; the Resolution remains irrevocable, legally binding and valid to this day.

“Emphasizing that the San Remo Resolution of 1920 recognized the exclusive national Jewish rights to the Land of Israel under international law, on the strength of the historical connection of the Jewish people to the territory previously known as Palestine.

“Recalling that such a seminal event as the San Remo Conference of 1920 has been forgotten or ignored by the community of nations, and that the rights it conferred upon the Jewish people have been unlawfully dismissed, curtailed and denied.

“Asserting that a just and lasting peace, leading to the acceptance of secure and recognized borders between all States in the region, can only be achieved by recognizing the long established rights of the Jewish people under international law.”

The outcome of the declaration gave birth to the “Mandate for Palestine,” an historical League of Nations document that laid down the Jewish legal right to settle anywhere in western Palestine, a 10,000 square-miles the area between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea.

Fifty-one member countries – the entire League of Nations – unanimously declared on July 24, 1922:

“Whereas recognition has been given to the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and to the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.”

Jews are in the Land of Israel as of right and not on sufferance.

It is important to point out that political right to self-determination as a polity for Arabs, was guaranteed by the same League of Nations in four other mandates – in Lebanon and Syria [The French Mandate], Iraq, and later Trans-Jordan [The British Mandate].

Any attempt to negate the Jewish people’s right to Palestine-Eretz-Israel, and to deny them access and control over the area designated for the Jewish people by the League of Nations is a serious infringement of international law.

The European Coalition for Israel was founded in Brussels in 2003. It is the only European non-Jewish grass roots organisation with an EU-liaison office in Brussels and with partners in most EU member states. Its main objective is to promote positive relations between Europe and Israel, to commemorate the Holocaust and to fight anti-Semitism.

Yesterday we on 4international made a reference to a powerful new rocket which Iran has just developed out of a consignment of Ukrainian Cruise missiles which it got some years ago.

This development is absolutely crucial to understand. Debkafile which carried the report made the central point that Iran can now hit Israel with a pay load, whatever that payload may be, for example with a nuclear bomb, without moving outside of the Iranian border.

It takes only a further moment of thought to follow this through to the great inherent danger to Israel and that is that this can be let off from say within a mountain fortress. This is not in any way far fetched because it is common knowledge that Iran has been building all of its nuclear centres within mountains.

That is the technology.

Iran has now got that ability, to strike against Israel, from anywhere within Iran.

So, a first strike nuclear against Israel IS possible.

Therefore please cast aside (for the moment) all speculation that we hear very often from essentially antisemites that “Iran would not dare” or that “they would be most stupid to do so because they would be signing their own death warrant” or any such permutation.

The end result of that anti-Semitic thinking is that it is OK for Jews in the year of 2010 some 65 years after the Holocaust to live in such danger.

We on 4international think it is not OK and in this we are quite alone on the Left of today. We are proud to stand with Jews and we will grow, be assured of that.

So the technology is there and it is explained and totally understandable to man´s intellect. But look also at the psychology, that is the psychology of the Mullahs who hold the power in Iran.

It is this psychology that future articles will turn to.

This psychology is rooted inside suicidal self sacrifice, which is an idea that trumps the above thought, that “Iran would not dare”!

And further articles also will turn to examine the real effect of the Iranian and Afghanistan wars, that Iran has been helped by the actions of the United States and European Governments.

The material world exists outside of the individual brain (or consciousness. As an addition to the above:

During the years from 1930 to 1945 the nearly whole `population of my country, Ireland, was kept in just about complete ignorance as to what the Nazis were doing to the Jews.

It seems to me as I read the Media etc that we are again in that kind of situation.

There are many articles on this theme (of the coming war on Israel) on the net

Try this


On the issue of Anne Frank, this young girl and her sister Margot were moved from their home town of Frankfurt Germany, to Amsterdam in Holland, but events were overcoming individual initiative. The Nazis invaded Holland and when in June and July 1942 the Nazis began moving the Jews to a centre close to the German border, Otto the father of Anne took the family into hiding in an attic.

The central lesson…do not let this happen again…the individual cannot fight alone

Once more we return to this most serious danger to Israel and to the many millions of Jews who live there and in the Diaspora.

I find this DEBKAfile report most alarming. Please read this on the following url


The report is based on the knowledge of a leading Israeli expert in these matters whose name is Yair Shamir.

It concerns a cruise missile weapon called the KH-SS. It appears that some years ago Iran acquired a number of these weapons from Ukraine. That is the first alarming thing it seems to me.

The second alarming thing is that Iran is able to take such weapons and upgrade them.

In this case from just a slight perusal of the article by myself this means that Iran has been able to attach a nuclear warhead, if it has such, to this weapon.

The third alarming point is that this weapon can hit Israel after being fired from Iran itself. It does not have to be taken outside of Iran.

What this means to me is that Israel is placed on a deadly defensive posture. It has to wait until such a weapon is fired, perhaps from deep within a mountain, and then take its chances on knocking it out of the sky.

As an Irish person I ask is this right that Jews in 2010 have to sit in their Jewish Homeland and wait?…
