It is now just a few days until the commemoration of Kristallnacht75, that is 75 years exactly since that horrific event.
The main theme in yesterday´s article was that the Jews were attacked in 1947 and 1948 by the Arabs, who were led by a Nazi, and that therefore it was the Jews who were the victims and not the Arabs.
So on to today´s article on this historical week of remembrance
Wednesday of the historical week of Kristallnacht75
If Israel is to survive as the historical state of the Jewish people then the issue will be decided by the leadership of the Jews and also by the leadership of humanity
In our article yesterday (Tuesday of the historical week of Kristallnacht75) we also made a reference as to how the extreme enemies of Israel and of the Jews in the Palestinian Arabs are calling for the ending of the state of Israel and for the creation of what they falsely call a secular state in which Jews, Arabs and Christian would live together in peace. That is a call for the death of Israel, and they would not be well advised get secular nor would they get peace, they would get Islam rule, Sharia Law, and those Arabs all know it. Thus they are speaking with forked tongue.
We have seen in Yugoslavia the smashing up and the disappearance of the state of Yugoslavia. The basis of Yugoslavia was a federation which was based on secularism. Yugoslavia was a real state in existence for 100 years.
Kosovo was ended in that very bloody process and was replaced by KosovA
All Serbs, Jews and Romany were driven out of Kosovo and it is now totally a Muslim Albanian state, with a small Serb community harassed and driven into a tiny corner bordering with Serbia proper. But Kosovo has been ethnically cleansed.
In this Kristallnacht75 it is well for Jewish people to remember the fate of Yugoslavia just those few years ago.
The state of Mali, and its wonderful music, was almost swallowed up and destroyed by Islamic attack. Mali would have been no more had not the French (based on the secular principles established by the glorious French Revolution) not intervened. Still the Northern section of Mali, given weak central governmental rule, is in danger of being sliced off by Jihad, just like Kosovo.
From Mali to Egypt…If General el Sisi had not courageously intervened against the Islamic Supremacist Morsi then Egypt today would be no more. In fact the very history of Egypt as contained in the Pyramids would have been no more because the Morsi Islamist Gang would have proceeded to tear them down stone by stone. People would stop visiting the ancient monuments of ancient pre-Islam civilisations because there would today be no monuments to visit. This shows how absolutely critical it is that el Sisi vanquishes over Morsi.
Syria is a classic case. You may not like Assad taking help from Iran, and indeed this new axis of Obama with Russia and Iran is a terrible threat against Israel. But at another level Assad is attacked and a nation attacked has a right to defend itself in any way it chooses and that means taking help from the very devil himself. If Assad is defeated Syria will be no more. It will go the way of Tunisia and above all of Libya. There is no longer a state, a nation state, in Libya. There is a Caliphate and nothing else. That is the direct result of the defeat and murder of Muammar Gadhafi.
Much of this is being directed by the policy of “Responsibility to Protect” which is central to Obama and his team of present incompetents. But “Responsibility to Protect” did not start with Obama and Soros, it lay at the centre of Reagan, Bush Senior, his son, also Clinton and Carter. “Responsibility to Protect” is really the centre of US Imperialist policy and Britain follows in its wake. This old word and concept “Imperialism” as Lenin described it is still totally valid because some things do not change in essence with time.
I believe that Israel should take the lead in protecting national identity in every country, and not just in Israel. Some disagree. They say that Israel should just look after itself, should go in on itself as it were. Well it can do the latter and that may do some good also, but Israel cannot opt out of these world events where nation states like Yugoslavia are simply destroyed.
Stand together in victory or fall together in defeat.
Chaos in the world is our number one enemy. The following is a redrafting of an old fable. I still find it very useful. The task of a Marxist or Trotskyist is not to create Chaos, that already is created by the break-up of the capitalist system in so many forms and in so many way. Now very often we must defend the right of nations to exist:
AN AESOP FABLE
From What Next? Vital Question for the German Proletariat, 1932

A cattle dealer once drove some bulls to the slaughterhouse. And the butcher came night with his sharp knife.
“Let us close ranks and jack up this executioner on our horns,” suggested one of the bulls.
“If you please, in what way is the butcher any worse than the dealer who drove us hither with his cudgel?” replied the bulls, who had received their political education in Manuilsky’s institute. [The Comintern.]
“But we shall be able to attend to the dealer as well afterwards!”
“Nothing doing,” replied the bulls firm in their principles, to the counselor. “You are trying, from the left, to shield our enemies — you are a social-butcher yourself.”
And they refused to close ranks.
