Jews like Trotsky are made into good Jews when they get an axe or ice pick stuck in their head… A bad Jew then became a good Jew. Kapish???
(FROM SOMEBODY CALLED YAMIT82 ON THE ISRAPUNDIT WEBSITE COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO)
What has the above piece of fascist literature got to do with the debate over Israel and the Palestinian Arabs? Answer everything!
The debate is now in full swing. It takes one crucial form in the differences that Martin Sherman has with the new book by Caroline Glick
I and 4international are totally on the side of Martin Sherman and against Glick and the conclusions of the Glick book. These comclusions were very well described by Sherman thus:
But I have grave reservations – to understate the case – regarding what is, in fact, the center-piece of her book: Her proposal that Israel not only annex the entire area of Judea and Samaria, extend Israeli sovereignty over these territories and apply Israeli law to them, but incorporate the Arab population there as permanent residents of Israel, and offer them a path to citizenship.
It would require more than a gigantic leap of unsubstantiated hope to believe that such a measure could precipitate any result other than “Lebanonization” of Israel.
Implausible and imprudent
“Lebanonization,” as the noted New York Times columnist, the late William Safire, explained, refers to the [situation] within a single country so riven with religious and other disputes that [it] becomes impossible to govern”; and should be distinguished from “Balkanization,” which refers to splitting a country into several separate – usually rivalrous – countries.”
Were Glick’s prescription to be adopted, it is difficult to see how internecine inter-ethnic strife, which has become the hallmark of Israel’s northern neighbor, would not afflict Israel itself. Even if her demographic calculations are correct, it would induce almost intolerable pressures on the socioeconomic fabric of the country, were it to attempt to maintain itself as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
Glick does seem to be aware, at least partially, of the severity of the problems implementation of her policy prescription is likely to generate. She writes: “The main price Israel will pay for applying its laws to Judea and Samaria… will be the demographic burden of increasing its potentially hostile Arab minority by 1.66 million people.”
Elsewhere she acknowledges that there will be an “initial shock that [Israel’s] economy will likely absorb following the sudden, steep rise in the number of applications for its welfare rolls after it grants permanent residency to the Palestinians in Judea and Samaria.”
But apart from glib acknowledgment of their existence, I could find no indication of how Glick proposes that the grave societal strains she mentions (and the many that she doesn’t) will be resolved, other than an expression of optimism that they will be.
In other words Glick proceeds in her political praxis on a wing and a prayer. Sherman along with the great majority, I maintain, of Jews do not want to proceed like that.
I maintain this because the connections of Glick with the US Establishment Jewish groups give her the appearance of much and deep support. That is the Lie right there.
Sherman is right to call her.
Belman the editor of Israpundit has refused to back Sherman in this struggle. Which brings me back to that piece of Hitlerite Nazi crap at the top of this piece. That was published on Belman´s editorship of Israpundit and remains there.
This is not the kind of leadership Jews today need.
What type of leadership do Jews today need? Jews need today the leadership of a party based on the science of Marxism, which is Trotskyism.
This Trotskyist party in Israel will be based on a scientific understanding of history, meaning a treatment of history which is based on facts, and which will seek the truth about history.
In recent years writers like Andrew Bostom have made great strides in investigating what is the real nature of Islam. This has been hidden for many centuries but by going back to primary sources the truth has emerged. Islamic Spain was the most cruel of all places known to mankind. By going back to primary sources writers like Bostom, and there are now quite a few, have answered the blatant lies of people like the ex nun Karen Armstrong. This is a great asset for us Trotskyists.
Similarly we feel indebted to Martin Sherman for his challenge to Glick and to her book. Glick essentially is trying to gloss over the nature of the Palestinian Arab movement. In one sence this began with the Arab defeat of 1967. Then knowing they were defeated the Arabs turned towards creating the myth of the “Palestinians”, at first it took the form of a meme, now though it is more than a meme, it is hard ideology.
But the Palestinian Arab phenomenon as sold to the world is no more than Jihad in Alliance with Christian Antisemitism a la Vatican. It is also intermixed with the crisis of US Imperialism and with the non viability of the EU, with this crisis in capitalism producing growing trends towards war, especially towards war by NATO against Russia. So Jihad is central in many of the plans of the most reactionary fast becoming Fascist forces on earth: Islam, the EU, US Imperialism
What does Glick propose to do? Not take the fight against this ideology but lodge it ever more strongly inside the Israeli state, with up to 40 per Arab Jihadist against the unfortunate 60 per cent Jews, unfortunate because the Jews are alone, while there are billions of Muslims surrounding her.
It is the most ghastly thing that Glick has done in this book. Glick does not mean or set out to do so, but she weakens Israel as Iran helped by the US and the growing crisis between US and Russia prepares to strike Israel and Jews
Martin Sherman does not posit this issue of the Jews in the world economic capitalist crisis situation. Still he has taken a valiant step against Glick and I support him critically but unconditionally in doing this
