WE TROTSKYISTS MUST CALL AS PRIORITY FOR JEWISH STATE WITH EMPHASIS ON “JEWISH”
This following article is definitely NOT a history and only gives some information which can be useful to a history. The writer only very partially understands what the ideology and practise of Stalinism is. The honest Jewish reader will quickly understand that from 1922 to the present is a period of the most intense struggles and conflicts. And if that period has been intense then this new century is going to be ten times more intense because the crisis in capitalism that produced the Holocaust is now 10 times more intense. Who were these first communists who came to Palestine in 1922? There is thus need for a historical reckoning but none forthcoming in this article
Mayday Demonstration in downtown Nazareth (Photo: Eli Gozansky) but what a farce in our 4international eyes, What a parody of communism the above picture represents. That is what all Israelis today see as being communism. Thes esentiments are straight out of the Nazi Big Lie. The Arabs in Israel today TAKE the Jobs and education but they make war on the Jewish State. Abbas says never a Jewish state but the Arabs since 1918 have gained 22 states of their own and still want a 23rd for this people called “Palestinians” created only since 1967 as an Antisemitic stratagem. These Stalinists must be politically exposed and destroyed. (From 2012 and is from http://maki.org.il/en/?p=457)
You will find Little encouragement in the Jewish Virtual Library. Hey guys Israel was not founded in 1922. The writer in Jewish Virtual clearly had Little appetite for the task and dismissed the whole (to him sorry) affair in about 5 lines…http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Politics/CommunistParty.html
The really important thing to grasp in all of this is that Leon Trotsky had become a Zionist by the 1930s in that he was advocating Jews to by any means get themselves to Palestine from out of the killing fields of Europe. His great ability allowed him to PREDICT the Holocaust so accurately.
these are historical facts and although I cannot itemise them here what I say is true
The difficulty for some today is that Trotsky was advocating a Jewish state while doing so from the standpoint of being a confirmed Atheist. This some religious Jews today just cannot stand and the thought of this drives some I have known into apoplexy. Indeed reproduced fully by Joseph Nedava an interview of 1938 shows Trotsky with a huge interest and attachment to Jewishness. He was a Jew and proud to be a Jew just as I am proud to be Irish (the cards that are dealt etc!)
As if all that were not enough, and it is plenty, there is also enough evidence that Trotsky was aware of the danger of what he called “Mohammedanism” and in this context he talked about the movement or transfer of peoples in this case meaning Arabs, so that Jews could find a place on earth to follow their ancient traditions, and of course religion.
That it must be pointed out was before our modern great awakening on Islam as a result of the theoretical work of many outstanding scholars, such as Andrew Bostom
To sum up these indaequate remarks I would say that the working class in the historical REGION OF Palestine should indeed celebrate May Day 2014, but should link it to the Holocaust, and to the role of the Arabs led by Hajj Amin el Husseini in that Holocaust. As we said Abbas is straight out of the Holocaust, his Holocaust Denial thesis for doctorate is only part, the other part is that both he and Arafat were mentored by Hajj Amin el Husseini. The need is to arrest these Nazi leadership of Fatah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad and to advance on all fronts the need for a Jewish State, not just any old state, but a Jewish state which must be sacrosanct. In this situation of historical Palestine today political demands such as these are primary
The real Marxists or Trotskyists opposed to Stalinism must be at the Forefront int he fight for historical accuracy on these issues. Profesor Francisco Gil White and Jared Israel have continually pointed to how the Israeli elites have also hidden the role of Hajj Amin el Husseini in the Holocaust. We on 4international concur. That actually gets to the very heart of the issue in the Middle East. The Arabs are filled witht he Antisemitism of the Jihad and it is that which created the Alliance with the Nazis. That should be number one topic at any May Day rally in Israel this year but will not. That it will not is not at all cause for despondency. Youth of Israel especially the youth will be looking more and more for historical truth
The article below I point out hails from 2012 so is still somewhat relevant
start article extract here
Under the direction of the Israeli Communist Party, part of the broader left-wing Hadash movement since 1977, demonstrators rallied on Friday evening in Jerusalem, Saturday night in Haifa, and on Sunday in Tel Aviv. In Nazareth, prior to lunch on Saturday, hundreds of people from across the generations and genders spilled out for a march that crossed from a petrol station located near to the Catholic Church of the Annunciation northward toward Mary’s Well, where Orthodox Christians believe the Virgin Mary was visited by the Archangel Gabriel, thus commencing her pregnancy.
Maki’s history goes back to the declaration of the Israeli state in 1948, and its roots extend to the Palestinian Communist Party, founded in 1923, mostly by immigrants who brought Europe’s burgeoning communist movement with them. Communism around the world has changed dramatically since those early days, when it was a movement of labor unions and chin-stroking intellectuals, and has become more closely associated with the totalitarian regimes of Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, and Pol Pot. But the Israeli branch missed most of these changes, and today it’s more about farmer communes and worker’s unions (and some Israel-specific issues, such as its controversial anti-Zionism).
Israel’s influx of conservative Russian immigrants and its occupation may edge the country ever to the right, but Hadash — a superficially joint Judeo-Arab front of socialist parties and organisations — won four seats in the most recent Knesset elections. They propose a self-described non-Zionist platform, one opposed to all forms of nationalism, in favor of total withdrawal from the West Bank and other territories gained after 1967 (an “aggressive war”), and the institutionalisation of the right of return for Palestinian refugees. Maki’s report on the most recent Party Congress in March speaks of the dangers of U.S. imperialism in the Middle East, and the dangers posed by the “fascistic” Netanyahu government.
Hadash appeals for Israel to become a bi-national state, as opposed to a homeland for the Jewish people (General Secretary Mohammad Barakeh has stated previously that he “does not accept the demand that every Jew can come to Israel”). This position has, according to Haaretz writer Avirama Golan, shackled Hadash and Maki to “the separatist-nationalist and populist stream.” They are, as such, merely one facet of the larger Arab bloc with Balad, Ra’am, and Ta’al, all Arab-Israeli parties.
A number of children also participated in the May Day demonstration. Clad in pristine white shirts and smart red neckerchiefs, they formed several marching bands made up largely of drummers, carried banners, or in one case dressed up as milk cartons festooned with Arabic writing. Most had been brought to the rally by their parents, who watched from the side of the road, cheered, and snapped pictures of their offspring.
Discussing the complex and often tortured history of communist can be difficult when talking with a still-committed Marxist-Leninist, whose views aren’t tied to Stalin or Mao, but aren’t always easily separated from these touchier legacies, either. Talking to Khenin, the communist Knesset member, we managed to discuss them indirectly by talking about whether the kids in the crowd understood the complexities of the ideology they were marching for. Khenin said that the children could not know the “mistakes of history” and the “lessons learned” from them.
By the time that the final rally in concrete carbuncle reached what was supposed to be its climax, the heat of the midday sun had sent most of the marchers retreating to shady areas, where boxes of popsicles waited. The designated speakers, grizzled old comrades, were left to make their passionate, firebrand speeches to a half-empty square, each concluded with a smattering of wilted applause.
Maki and Hadash haven’t quite succeeded in establishing themselves as the strong opposition to the current Netanyahu-Barak government that they’d sought. As a non-Zionist outfit, they’ve isolated themselves from Israel’s main opposition forces — parties such as Labor, Meretz, and Kadima; and peace organisations such as Peace Now — who all broadly support withdrawal from the West Bank as a means to securing a Jewish and democratic state.
Khenin repeatedly used the phrase “social justice” to describe the protest’s main message: “Money for Jobs and Education — Not War and Occupation”, one banner read. Social justice is in and of itself a noble cause, but Maki are perhaps the wrong voice to trumpet it, given their status as one branch of a larger movement that is more associated with its many injustices. It is a reminder of how isolated Israeli communism has been from the rest of the communist world since the first communists arrived here almost a century ago.
