The website Emperor’s Clothes was much read among Serbian people, certainly familiar with many activists, also in Jewish circles, starts off its article on Libya in the following way. It is a scandal:
Against the Western attack on Libya
A statement from Emperor’s Clothes
[Posted March 20, 2011]
Numerous people have asked us where we stand on Libya. Let us say, briefly: we oppose Gaddafi and we oppose Western military intervention against his regime.
The writer is Jared Israel and as far as I am concerned THAT is the depths of opportunism and shows the real nature of his politics.
Emperor’s Clothes is sitting on the fence in a situation of war, where the Empire is openly talking about the assassination of Gadhafi. Treachery is an inadequate word to explain this position of Emperor’s Clothes or www.tenc.net
I can explain this better by reprinting here the beginning of the last article which we wrote on Libya:
We on 4international hope for a Gadhafi victory over the forces of the Empire/Sharia Alliance
Gadhafi is fighting for us all, all of us who oppose this Alliance of the Evil.
We as Trotskyists stand TOTALLY with Gadhafi. And we ask all of our friends among the Jewish patriots, and we have many friends, to stand with us along with Gadhafi
The future of this very battle, in which we must defend Gadhafi, is going to determine if Israel will continue to exist. In short, Obama, Cameron, Zapatero and their likes must be defeated because the Empire/Sharia Alliance must be defeated.
No matter how the Media talking heads spin it Libya is a tiny country of a mere handful of millions
America has 300m millions
Britain about 60 millions
Spain about 40 millions
France about 60 millions
Add all of the rest and you soon arrive at a figure of at least a billion actively involved in this war against Libya
The contrast is sharp!
We on 4international call for the victory to Gadhafi while tenc and the writers there, in this case Jared Israel, is opposed to Gadhafi
In this context, the context of a war against Gadhafi, Jared Israel is sitting on the fence and states in his first sickening sentence that he is against the attack on Gaddafi and is against Gadhafi.
That position of Jared Israel is both nonsence, logically, and is also a complete lack of revolutionary backbone
NOT ONLY DOES HE NOT CALL FOR THE VICTORY OF GADHAFI OVER NATO HE GOES EVEN FURTHER THAN THIS AND STATES IN HIS FIRST SENTENCE THAT HE IS AGAINST GADHAFI. SO THEN IF GADHAFI IS MURDERED IN AN RAF STRIKE THEN JARED ISRAEL AND EMPEROR’S CLOTHES WILL NOT REGRET IT!
WHAT OPPORTUNISM THAT IS!
This is the position also (totally) of all of the Jewish sites that I have read
Ted Belman, and Yamit82 who writes under that pseudonym with Belman on Israpundit, started off in support of the “Empire/Sharia Alliance”. They were for the victory of the Empire (Obama) and the defeat of Gadhafi.
I challenged Belman in public on his site.
To his credit Belman acknowledged that the war in Libya by the Empire/Sharia Alliance was a major threat to Israel, that he was wrong and that I was right. I am not crowing, I could care less really, but these political positions for Jews are life and death matters.
The sneak Yamit82 who writes with Belman then changed his position totally also, AND IN THE WAKE OF THIS, and began to write in a kind of supportive way towards Gadhafi
In changing his position Belman was generous enough to say that I was right and he was wrong
That is just fine by me. I have some repect for the integrity of Belman, not his general politics though. Belman has been wrong too many times, wrong on the withdrawal from Gaza, wrong on Bush and the Iraq war etc…until hhe changes and adapts and kind of also covers his ass as lawyers do.
The sneak Yamit82 was never able or prepared to do that. Just as if by a miracle he changed his line. But that is only temporary anyway because these types keep adapting, also however because he is a sneak and lacks basic honesty. It is all there on Israpundit for anybody who is bothered to check up on the controversy.
As I said that kind of change is usually and in this case definitely IS superficial.
INDEED NOWHERE HAVE BELMAN OR ANY OF THESE JEWISH WRITERS EVER CALLED FOR A VICTORY TO GADHAFI
Jared Israel and Tenc is just one of this sorry crowd of opportunists and people whose politics is not really based on principle. He may have done good research in the past but this is the present and this is war.
The roots of these differences are deep.
I am proud to say that the roots of 4international lie inside of the massive struggle of Leon Trotsky in order to create principled leadership inside of human society.
Trotsky did not look on Haile Selassie as any kind of progressive.
But when Haile Selassie and his country Abyssinia (Ethiopia) was attacked by Mussolini Trotsky called for the victory to Haile Selassie. Trotsky did not fudge the issue.
His defense of Selassie was UNCONDITIONAL against the Nazis
This is the politics that Jared Israel is opposed to, it is the politics that Ted Belman and this whole swampland of Jewish blogs is opposed to. You know, like Jihadwatch, Atlas Shrugs, and a hundred others
And the sneak called Yamit82 who writes with Belman on Israpundit will NEVER understand the meaning of the word principle
On the morning after the horrific bomb on the bus in Jerusalem yesterday evening we appeal to all Jews and Serbs to think very carefully of the treacherous position of Jared Israel, and to look very closely at every Jewish leader today.
The test is actually not in Jerusalem, or not just in Jerusalem, but the test is in relation to the NATO war on Libya.
Do you want the victory to Libya led by Gadhafi. That is TO GADHAFI.
Do you want the victory to NATO, to Obama, to Cameron, or to all of these Fascists who make up what we call the Empire/Sharia Alliance who state their hatred for Gadhafi
You could not sit on the fence when Milosevic was in the NATO prison and I did not. I do believe through what he did (and I believe that Andy Wilcoxin thinks so too, or did think so) that Jared Israel and Tenc sat on the fence then
He is certainly sitting on the fence now in relation to calling for victory to Gadhafi
In company with Belman, Yamit82 and this whole swampland filled with opportunists…It is a bad scene!
