A recent post on Israpundit and other sites refers to present position of very famous historian Benny Morris.
The position of Morris is also the position that 4international holds towards the Jewish struggle for Israel, but it has much wider implications
Morris does a number of things:
1. Morris sees this struggle as historical. He sees it in a historical perspective. This is key. I am amazed at the numbers of people who do not see politics and life historically.
2. Morris points out that in November 29, 1947, the Arabs of Palestine were offered an Arab state and they refused it. The offer was from the United Nations General Assembly vote, and it was in anticipation of the British decision to withdraw in the following year of 1948
3. The idea was that there would be an Arab Palestine state, and a Jewish Palestine state (meaning Israel), and they would be living and coexisting (helping each other) side by side
4. THE ARABS REJECTED THIS, WENT TO WAR WITH 5 ARMIES, LEFT THE UN ASSEMBLY THREATENING BLOODSHED AGAINST THE JEWS
5. In that war the Arabs were defeated, hence the 700,000 refugees. These refugees have now become with their descendents 8 millions. This is the key factor. Both Abbas and Hamas are insisting on the return of these 8 millions. But the total area is about the size of Munster. These refugees are being used to bludgeon the Israeli state out of existence. Morris makes the point that these 8 millions are being used to win that war which was lost in 1948. You cannot do that!
Now from Morris we as a Trotskyist movement take it up. The issue at bottom is that the Jews are on what the Muslims of the world see as Muslim Lands.
This is why the Jewish struggle in Israel, latest for example against Forest Fires set by Arab terrorist Jihadist Warriors etc, are at the forefront of the overall struggle against Islamic Fascism
You can say that we are over-reacting here!
But they said the same thing on a wide scale about Hitler!
There are many Chamberlains waving pieces of paper in the political situation today! Many!
Iran is very like Hitler in one respect. Not the people, but the forces of Islam in Iran, seek clearly to destroy Israel. Hitler sought clearly to destroy Jewry.
There is a very serious underestimation of Iranian Islam taking place today.
It boils down to this. Can you change the mind of Iranian leaders re Israel by dialogue.
Think that through! If you are a Jew living in the threatened area of Israel would you DEPEND on dialogue? Should you as a Jew be asked to!?
AND NOW THIS LATEST!
AT ONE STROKE IRAN IS NOW INDEPENDENT FROM RUSSIAN URANIUM. IT IS MINING ITS OWN URANIUM DUST. THAT IS THE VERY MATERIAL FOR PLUTONIUM WHICH IS THE MATERIAL FOR A H-BOMB. THAT H-BOMB IS AIMED AT TEL AVIV!
We on 4international are Trotskyist. THIS IS WHERE TROTSKY AND THE PRINCIPLES OF TROTSKY WRIT LARGE COME RIGHT INTO THE MODERN PICTURE.
Study Trotsky towards Fascism in the 1920s on through the 1930s especially. There is the secret to everything. There is a mine of information as to how to fight against Fascism today. There is the emphasis on action, not talk. (Leon Trotsky contemplated moving the Red Army to depose the Nazis in thye critical year of 1933)
The situation is critical. 4international is now branching out and is beginning a website called “We Defend Israel” and this will be underway immediately, posing in very detailed and concrete terms how Israel can be saved from definite destruction if changes are not made immediately among all Jews. BUT MORE, AMONG ALL WORKERS IN THE WORLD AND REMEMBER HERE THAT WORKERS IN SPAIN IN THE AIRCRAFT INDUSTRY WERE ORDERED BACK TO WORK, THEIR COMPUTER SCREENS, BY THE HATED GUARDIA CIVIL OF FRANCO JUST 3 NIGHTS AGO
REMEMBER FOLKS OUT THERE…AT THE POINT OF A PISTOL!
That is why we on 4international make changes in our practice. This site will now go into Trotsky’s writings in a way never done before
And this site 4international rest assured will continue, so keep tuned in, sign up as stated to have articles mentioned on your own email address.
The new site is
There will be articles on it from tomorrow Wednesday
