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.
ALSO SEEN IN THE CONTEXT THAT TROTSKY COMPREHENSIVELY CORRECTED THIS MISTAKE IN THE LAST 10 YEARS OF HIS LIFE AND ASSERTED THAT THE JEWS WERE A NATION, AND THAT AS A NATION HAD TO HAVE THEIR HOMELAND.
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.
