Leon Trotsky with Diego Rivero in the 30s


Martin Sherman makes vital points such as


“As a result, the political “Right” has found itself unable to respond effectively to the pointed and pertinent question from “left-wing” adversaries: “So what’s your alternative?” With no comprehensive countervailing paradigmatic position to promote or defend, the “Right” found itself gradually forced to give way under the weight of this onerous question, and to adopt increasing portions of the failed formula it had rejected.”


The defence of Israel as the Jewish Homeland is also the war internationally against Islam, and it must also be the war against political elites in the world in general, especially a necessary war against the Vatican (bit not against the Christian or Catholic people who themselves are being betrayed by the Churches and the Vatican in their own struggle against Islam)


As if all that were not hard enough remember also that we live in a period of deepening crisis in the international capitalist system where the drive in the world is towards class dictatorship, morphing into Fascist states. The latter raises the issue, as it has always historically done, of growing Antisemitism. This Antisemitism has something new, a coalition of US Presidents, of anti-Marxist Fascistsm of Islam and all against Jews and Israel.


Sherman performs a useful role in pointing to the bankruptcy of “Right” as well as “Left” in Israel. He is aware that this absence of principled leadership poses the greatest dangers for Israel, for the Jews of Israel, as well as the Jews in the Diaspora, including in America who are losing their Jewishness, and are being absorbed into the forces of American Imperialism.


However Martin Sherman tries to fix the problem from within the Jewish ideology of Judaism (more or less) and he cannot go outside of the Jewish experience, towards Trotskyism.


Sherman with many others is correct in identifying the two factors, geographical and demographic, as being central issues.


Sherman proposes paying Arabs in Palestine who want to leave and create a future for themselves a notable grant which may well be appealing.


This however, ALTOUGH 4INTERNATIONAL DOES NOT OPPOSE IT, is a little bit of sidestepping of the issue.


The issue that needs to be hammered out inside the international movement including the international working class movement is:


  1. Israel is the Homeland of the Jewish people
  2. The issue raises the issue of nation, because the Jews have 4000 years of history as a nation, the longest in existence
  3. This issue of nation runs into conflict with the demands of international capitalism in crisis, and its need for dictatorial central control, wrongly called sometimes “NEW” World Order. Not New…Hitler attempted the same.
  4. The Palestinians are not a nation but a carefully manufactured concept of Antisemitism existing since roughly 1967. It is a meme becoming a law through repetition. That is the central thing that must be tackled head on.
  5. The issue of nation also runs into conflict with modern day anti-Marxists because although there was a tendency to dismiss Nation (for obvious reasons) by the time of Leon Trotsky in the 1930s, the main socialist revolutionary leader of the times there was a serious reversal by Leon Trotsky. Trotsky came to stand for Jewish nation and for Ukrainian nation (and Nationhoods)



These are issues that are far more important than paying these “Palestinians” to find a home elsewhere. That is a tactic that CAN be used but it is only a tactic. The concept of the Jewish Homeland and Nation must be advanced far more as a priority. I notice that Sherman was given support by a character called “Curious American” who advances the Palestinian Fascist cause continually. That is the danger.


4international is also opposed to all concepts of A B or C including the hundreds of variations as advanced often by that centrist Jew Ted Belman. 4international says to Belman state your ground and fight for it.


Lay down the basis. The International People laid down the law in the early 1920s. Jordan is the Jewish Homeland, and still is. Certainly is Golan, Gaza, and Judea and Samaria, as well as Israel as it is today. All that was stolen from the Jews by World Antisemitism. Sinai was won in rightful struggle.


That is the position of 4international. THAT is the position that the centrist Ted Belman could never hold.


Towards that position we hold and along the way we are prepared to advance tactically. We may accept temporary compromise but on principles never veer from.


Only a Trotskyist Party can advance both tactically and strategically, both concepts which are in a unity and conflict of opposites. The conflict between the two have to be kept inside of the unity.


We are in a new period. We do not want to be messing around with bank balances. We want to advance a revolutionary and a strategic programme.


A/ Only Jews live in Israel. All others, that is non-Jewish, are there by invitation, they are guests and if they understand that they are guest they can be honoured guests.

B/ Israel is what was laid down by the International Peoples in 1920 as outlined above

C/ The struggle against Fascism, Racism, Antisemitism today is meaningless if the above concept of Israel is not fought for. That is what distinguishes 4international as revolutionaries today, and as being against anti-Marxist leftist pro-Fascists…


Did the Jewish leaders like Caroline Glick not know what to expect when Pope Francis came to Jerusalem. If Glick had any political sense then she would have known that nothing but trouble lay in store for the Jewish people who have always faced deep threat from the Vatican.

In our times there was only one Pope, Benedict, who confronted the reality of Islam and therefore Palestinianism, but following his famous address he withdrew and retreated from the Jihad, which was threatening not only himself Benedict but of course millions of Christians in Muslim countries. Reality of Islam.

Francis has never said one word against Islam. He thinks it is a religion of peace led astray by a few extremists. His Christians are being decimated and he talks like that all of the time.

Caroline Glick is a major problem for the Jewish people today. She presents Jews in Israel with the presence of at least 40 per cent Muslims. How could that work given what we see in Europe. Some special magic perhaps!

This is carried on in her position on everything, including this Pope visit.

In the following extract from her latest article she is actually saying that John Paul 2 that hated bigot and pro-Imperialist, was actually a friend of the Jews. At least that is what I read. Consider this:

His predecessor Pope John Paul II was less willing to confront Islamic violence. But his opposition to Communism made him respect Israel as freedom’s outpost in the Middle East. John Paul’s visit to Israel in 2000 was in some ways an historic gesture of friendship to the Jewish people of Israel.

Both Benedict and John Paul II were outspoken champions of the Second Vatican Council and maintained doctrinal allegiance to the Church’s rejection of anti-Judaism, including the charge of deicide, and its denunciation of replacement theology.

Alas, the Golden Age of Catholic-Jewish relations seems to have come to an end during Francis’s visit to the Promised Land this week.

“Opposition to communism” by John Paul 2 is what endears him to Glick.

And here we are back at this same issue for Jews which comes up time and time again. Why should Jews be proponents of capitalism and its advanced stage Imperialism?

Why tie Jews to that?

And more! In tying Jews to the hoodlum Anti-Communist John Paul 2, Glick is also tying Jews to the Argentine dictatorship, which as everybody knows was also a fight against “communism” and directed by the CIA, and is tying Jews to the actions of Pope Francis then head of the Jesuits in Argentina. Read this extract:

But for some Argentinians the pope pointedly remains Bergoglio rather than Francis. They still want to know what he did – or did not do – during Argentina’s Dirty War between the military dictatorship and its left-wing opponents during which the state murdered more than 10,000 people.

Such Argentinians include Estela de la Cuadra, whose family suffered more than most during the dictatorship: five of her family members were “disappeared”. Among those she never saw again were her husband, a brother-in-law and her sister Elena.

Elena was pregnant when she was snatched in February 1977. Her parents reached out to a family contact in Rome, the superior general of the Jesuits. He promised to help them and sent Elena’s father a letter of introduction to the head Jesuit in Argentina, 40-year-old Fr Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

Ms de la Cuadra has the letter Fr Bergoglio wrote to a bishop in La Plata asking him to help the family. Eventually they received news: Elena was gone forever but had given birth to a daughter Ana before she was murdered. The baby had been adopted. “My parents were told there was nothing more that could be done,” says Ms de la Cuadra.

Illegal adoptions
What makes her cynical about the pope’s emergence as one of the world‘s leading moral voices is that in testimony he gave in 2010 to a court investigating the military’s crimes Bergoglio, by now archbishop of Buenos Aires, said he had become aware of the military’s illegal adoption of hundreds of children born to women it had disappeared only “10 years before”, correcting himself to say he had become aware of the campaign to recover the children during the first trials of the military leadership in 1985.

“It is a lie, because he met our family about this very issue during the dictatorship,” says Ms de la Cuadra, who says her father told Fr Bergoglio his daughter was pregnant.

In a 2011 signed statement Cardinal Bergoglio said he was not told the disappeared woman was pregnant. But even so his claim of ignorance about the plight of pregnant detainees is hard to reconcile with the role played in publicising the issue by Ms de la Cuadra’s mother and the other founders of the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, the group that campaigned for information about their missing loved ones…


It is obvious that Pope Francis was in deep with the Fascist dictatorship and according to good Argentine people a liar as well.

This is the man who the Jewish leaders of Israel invited into Israel last weekend

And Glick is covering for his communist hatred and the role he played in the Fascist Dictatorship of Argentine. At least 10,000 women, workers, trade unionists, youth perished at the hand of the dictatorship AND Pope Francis.

Why could Israeli leaders not have said until we investigate further your role in the Argentine Fascist dictatorship in Argentine you Pope Francis is simply NOT welcome in the land of the Jews, Israel.


(responsable with Nazis for Croatian Death Camps)


The issue in the world today is very simply Antisemitism. It is Antisemitism which separates all political tendencies.


The Vatican is very much a political tendency. It is clearly a political organisation. Pope John Paul in his visits to Poland and elsewhere was deeply involved in bringing down the whole system of Soviet Russia. You may agree or disagree with that. What you cannot deny is that he was a political operator.


What has that though to do with Antisemitism? Surely the Vatican is not Antisemitic.


Well the Vatican helped thousands of Nazis to escape to places like South America, even putting them up in the Vatican, prior to secret embarkation.


Now Pope Francis is on Monday going to visit the “Palestinians” and call for them to have a state. This is even though Francis knows very well that the recent poll shows that Antisemitism is rife in the Palestinians.


“The most anti-Semitic countries and territories were led by the West Bank and Gaza, where 93 percent of the adult population holds anti-Semitic views”…


Pope Francis is calling for a state for THAT!!!


Where 93 out of 100 are Antisemitic.


Is THAT not worth talking about when the visist of Pope Francis is talked about on the Media, such as the BBC?








by Felix Quigley

Hanging over the Jewish people is 6 million of their people murdered by the Nazis…that is murdered by Antisemitism


The uniqueness of the Jews rests especially on the Jews being the longest nation of mankind…some 4000 years AND of the uniqueness of Antisemitism as a special hatred among men


Those two factors place a great challenge on leadership today


It must be said that right across the board (speaking of Israeli leadership) that challenge is not being met and I predict will not be met by present leaders.


The present leaders remind me of the driver of a badly damaged Grand prix car, where the driver tries to steer but every jerk of a reluctant steering wheel sends a judder through the whole car (Israeli public) and amid s`pectator gasps causes a further tremor. Such can be said of the latest proposal of Bennett who seems to be an advocate of the discredited theory that if you make your enemy (Palestinians) comfortable in life then they will respond by “liking” you in nirvana friendship never-ending. Sadly that is not so. Antisemitism trumps that. Similarly the proposals by Martin Sherman based on paying Palestinians to make a new life for themselves elsewhere aided by financial grants and other help falls into the same trap. Antisemitism is likely to trump Sherman as well as Bennett.


It is all about leadership as far as Jews are concerned, as far as Irish are concerned, as far as ANYBODY is concerned. THAT is the central issue. So it is well to look closely at existing Israeli leaders right across the board. There is need for clarity. In this there are no “friends”! There are indeed colleagues in struggle, brothers in struggle. But there must be open discussion. Give a man a post in a bourgeois government (Bennett) and he stops communicating and be becomes a “prophet”!!! So there needs to be fair discussion where the discussion is carried on with a lot of that elusive quality “FAIRNESS”.


Proposed a humanitarian solution to the Palestinians. Why not! We wish no living being ill man or animal and I would say especially our dumb and totally dependent cousins! But wait…let us also have some principles BECAUSE The Palestinians cannot have a lucky or fortunate future under any circumstances or under any way of thinking if they remain Antisemitic, The Palestinians must break from Antisemitism. That involves the Palestinians understanding their own history. The Palestinians must find a concrete way forward but based on that. Bennett says make them prosperous, as Scarlett Johannson that gorgeous creature thinks also, and they will forget all about ideology of Antisemitism, but ideologies do not work like that and the prosperous Palestinian will become more envious and more Antisemitic not less!!!




Figures show that Antisemitism is deepest among the Arabs. This is a combination of ethnic hatred of Arabs towards Jews, and the hatred promoted by Islam towards Jews


The first step, the very first step, is for the Palestinians to break free from Antisemitism. Jews are never responsable for Antisemitism. Until then Jews simply must defend themselves by all means against Antisemitism…everlasting position of Trotskyist 4international


The Jewish people by still being around after such persecutions and setbacks in 4000 long years of history shows that they will always fight for a future. The problem today is that there are conflicting ideologies as to what Jews should do




Some immediate conflicting ideologies


  1. Paul Erlinger says that the US acting on this Antisemitism of the Arabs is not significant. I wonder where he has been living as Obama and Kerry preceded by Bush and Condi have stoked it up
  2. The religious paralysers…they say we have existed with the help of God for 4000 years what can destroy us today…forgetting that the Jews were saved not by God but by the Red Army, for all the thanks that the Russian lads and girls got for defeating Hitler. The religious folk of Israel create a diversion which you must reject because the religious folk do not provide an answer in the real world (of today)
  3. The Palestinian loving Jews in Israel which is a widish sward. They all have one thing in common…they do not like Jews and they just love Arabs and seek at every turn to be friends with Arabs. They are dangerous and Steven Plaut often rightly attacks them as such. They blame Israel. They omit history. They live in their own heads. These are in general various leftist Anti-Marxists, various Stalinists as in the Israeli Communist Party, Peace Now idiots, Labourists and renegades from Likud like Livni. Sharon was also a renegade. In general they have the same political philosophy as the German Jews who would or could not fight Hitler, and in the end were forced to try to collaborate with the Nazis. They died anyway. Sometimes no compromise is possible
  4. Extreme anti-socialist leaders like Steven Plaut. Plaut falsifies the history of socialism and is a falsifier no more need be said. There are very many bloggers in this category
  5. Patriotic Jews with good and factual analyses. They understand the truth. Yet they are caught in the trap of individualism. An individual cannot change history in the sense we are talking about here.
  6. The Israeli military..the leadership is politically stupid, totally obtuse, having not understood anything in the past 10 years…Yugoslavia, Mubarak, Gadhafi, Ukraine and of course Assad. In general their obtuseness leads to paralysis. The IDF soldiers are patriotic and intelligent but they are led by political careerist mostly fools and tied to military discipline are a threat to the Jews in the longest run, but in the short term the Jewish people have no other defence
  7. The Israeli people…They were mobilising strongly against the Sharon Gaza withdrawal…but without a party to lead the growing revolt of the masses of Israelis was sold out by the Rabbis of the Settler Movement. The individualist activists were powerless and the youth were betrayed.


All of this spells up to a crisis of leadership.


How to resolve that issue of leadership is a BIG issue. Let us discuss the mechanism.


Winston Churchill  June 1941 on Nazi invasión of Russia
I am not saying here that Iran today is Germany 1933. But yesterday we said that if Iran had the nuclear bomb then it would use it against the millions of Jews in Israel.
I base this thought which is a thought of scientific truth because when you study Antisemitism there is no limits to it. When the Nazis were clearly defeated in 1944/45, and THEY KNEW they were defeated, the hatred of Antisemitism carried them on and they INTENSIFIED the Holocaust of the Jews. It was because of this TRUTH that Anne Frank and her sister lost their lives at the end.
So think on this…If the Antisemitism of Iran has the Nuclear Bomb then it will use it against Jews.
Bush held Israel back from destroying the Iranian Bomb. Obama carried this forward but in a more obvious way.
The agreement that Obama talked about, or the possibility of an agreement, was always a lie and Obama knew that. The reasons behind his and Bush’s thinking do not matter. What matters is the results.
These are the latest moves by Iran in these negotiations:
“Iran Throws Monkey Wrench Into Nuclear Deal,” Reza Kalilli, Yahoo, May 18, 2014
Iran has thrown up new roadblocks to reaching a deal with the P5+1 world powers over its illicit nuclear program.
* Three days of negotiations in the fourth round of Geneva discussions ended Friday in arguments and confrontations when the Iranian team presented their country’s new “red lines,” diminishing any hope by the Obama administration to claim victory in its approach to Iran’s nuclear ambitions, according to reports from Iran. Hossein Shariatmadari, a former torturer and now managing editor of the conservative newspaper Keyhan, the mouthpiece of the country’s supreme leader, in an Op-Ed published Saturday revealed details of the Geneva negotiations and congratulated the Iranian delegation for its steadfast demand that the country has a right to pursue nuclear development.
* The Obama administration hoped (DID HE REALLY?) that with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Javad Zarif showing an eagerness to solve the nuclear issue and address the West’s concerns, there would be a possibility for a negotiated solution. An interim agreement penned last November in Geneva was touted as a “historic nuclear deal.” Under that agreement, Iran — in return for billions of dollars in sanctions relief — limited its enrichment activity to the 5 percent level with a current stockpile of over 10 tons (enough for six nuclear bombs), converted much of its 20 percent enriched stock to harmless oxide and agreed to allow more intrusive inspections of its nuclear plants by the International Atomic Energy Agency, whose inspections were limited to only agreed-on facilities. The final draft of the agreement to address all of Iran’s nuclear facilities and activities, along with its missile program, was planned to be finalized this July. “The Obama administration and its allies were drunken happy after the initial agreement,” said Shariatmadari, who had previously criticized the Iranian negotiating officials for being soft with their Western counterparts. “With this delusion, that with the continuation of negotiations they could wrap up the issue, they had come prepared to Geneva with their demeaning requests of security ‘breakout’ or preventive measures of (possible military dimensions). … To present these conditions as their winning cards on the negotiating table, they could not imagine in their wildest dreams that this time the Iranian negotiators on the other side of the table … were aware of the opponents’ tricks.” The red lines that the Iranian delegation presented, as stated by Shariatmadari, are: • The expansion of Iranian nuclear research and development. • The acceptance of Iran’s need for enrichment on a level that feeds the need of the country (the country has over 19,000 centrifuges, far more than is needed for peaceful nuclear purposes, and would like to expand). • The preservation of the Arak heavy-water plant (the plant once operational could produce plutonium and serve the ruling clerics with a second path to nuclear weapons). • No interference or limitation to the country’s military and defensive measures (the Islamic regime is under U.N. sanctions for developing ballistic missiles and it currently holds the largest missile stockpile in the Middle East with ranges capable of reaching as far as Europe). • The removal of all sanctions at once as opposed to step-by-step relief (the U.N. resolutions and sanctions in place are the results of efforts by several U.S. administrations and over a decade of negotiations). “These (red) lines, which the enemy had never expected to see, at first caused their disbelief and then their anger to the level of shouts and arguments,” Shariatmadari wrote. “The opponents thought that the conditions set by the Iranian delegates were meant to increase (Iran’s) negotiating power, but when faced with their absolute resolve … they realized that their dreams were swept away and that the Geneva 4meeting had failed.” According to a source within the regime’s intelligence community, the leadership will not give up its nuclear ambitions, and the Revolutionary Guards see themselves as the dominating power in the Middle East and beyond. They believe that the Obama administration will not engage militarily and that the regime needs to weather the sanctions regime, which has already cracked due to the initial Geneva agreement. – See more at:
there comes a time when defence means action.
Israel runs out of time on this score. The situation is this. If I have to concrete over my front garden because i cannot stand the weeds. I use one cement mixer and it takes me a week. Or I use 100 cement mixers and it takes me 20 minutes. It all now depends on the number of accelerators that Iran has available to change 5 per cent to 10, then to 20, then to 40, then to 80 and THEY ARE THERE.
Thus a lie was sold to the whole world on this, and especially to Jews, but such a war by Iran will effect the whole world.
One thing that Marx and Lenin/león Trotsky did not do…they did not lie. They were above all revealers of underlying truths and they were researchers. You may not like marxism but grant them that.
However the anti-Marxist leftists of today DO NOT STAND IN THAT TRADITION. That is the problem of leadership that we keep on referring to on 4international
Radio broadcast on the German invasion of Russia (June 1941).


The Iran Crisis


a cruel islam regime will not hesitate to murder Jews by the millions
When you talk about the crisis of Iran Nuclear Threat then really you talk about everything, first and foremost how the Holocaust happened, who was responsible?


Immediate problem! Sadly to answer this requires a book or books!


But it was connected with these factors:

  1. Capitalist society could not bring mankind forward. It reached kind of dead end in the Germany of the 20s and 30s
  2. Nazism emerged out of what? This is the subject for endless debate, each debater with their own agenda. But for my money and to simplify it emerged out of (1)
  3. This is clear 1. Nazis were directly responsible 2. Islam was directly responsible through Hajj Amin el Hussein not one individual mark you, but the representative of Islam 3. The Christians sadly were responsible 4. All the western governments interlinked with Christianity were responsible 5. The Catholics through the Vatican were very directly involved 6. The US becoming the World Leader of Capitalism used the Nazis post 1945 7. Leading US Company IBM made the Holocaust possible 8. The crisis of leadership in the left, in the 1930s Stalin was liquidating in Russia, Spain, France and America/Mexico all of the socialist leaders, thus the concept of Stalinism has to be learned of by a new generation


Now this is the key consideration and it is a terrible conclusion…All of the above are present in the present continual attacks being made on Israel


Read the following now and ask yourself if the US is directly involved in setting Israel up for another Holocaust taking a different form, the form of attack in Israel from Nuclear bombing?


(extract from current debka)’s-missile-arsenal-but-not-long-range-ICBMs-Deep-resentment-in-Jerusalem-




This issue has got one word spelled over it…”Leadership”


Where today is the party which can take this issue and go into the ordinary people of America and hammer out by every possible means the implications of this action by the US Government in front of those ordinary American people?


And what kind of party will it be? Will it be some kind of socialist party based on principle or will it be some kind of capitalist minded party based also on devotion to the Jewish Israeli people?


At this point all I can say is that no such party exists.


I believe that the capitalist crisis of 1929 onwards produced the conditions for Hitler to build his movement so I do not go the capitalist road today.

I do hope for a new socialist leadership but that will be far from easy



More than one-in-four adults, 26 percent of those surveyed, are deeply infected with anti-Semitic attitudes


To what does that refer? To Arabs who have for 2000 years hated Jews as part of Islamic culture?


No, this is the point. This figure refers to the whole world and is the figure produced by the ADL (Anti-Defamation League) as in “NEW YORK, May 13, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ – The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today released the results of an unprecedented worldwide survey of anti-Semitic attitudes. The ADL Global 100: An Index of Anti-Semitism surveyed 53,100 adults in 102 countries and territories in an effort to establish, for the first time, a comprehensive data-based research survey of the level and intensity of anti-Jewish sentiment across the world”.


As gold relates to capitalism and is the fall back money in periods of crisis so Antisemitism is the fall back position of humanity in a period of class crisis.


I do not think that the Jews I know have internalised this because the starting point for so many nation minded people (which I support that is I support nation hood) is to dny class and class issues never mind the overall class structure of society.


As life gets ugly under capitalist crisis conditions (youth in Spain 70 per cent unemployment with no perspective of Spanish capitalism resurrecting itself) the fall back position is always ugly.


There is no leadership at all among the Spanish youth to educate them about history…I emphasise NONE, that is NO LEADERSHIP


Let me establish a few truths. In general Jewish people cannot face up to reality. The reality of their history is just too painful (visit again Levin The Oslo Syndrome)


None did! Ben Gurion did not prepare at all for 1948. Begin became dispirited with the death of his wife. Sharon Mon Dieu! Netanyahu seeks comfort of a silly woman!


There is nothing today. The Knesset type of politics is paralysed and is paralysing the Jews. The religious Jewish answer heads in the direction of imposing a dictatorship not over the Arabs but over the Jews, that is over the Jewish mind, but the Jews were great because their minds were free.


This is the problem. Jews are paralysed. The alcoholic must first accept that he is before he can change. In that regard Jews must accept that they are paralysed totally before heading for a solution.



There needs to be a new type of party and leadership. Everything needs to be questioned. I would rule out ANY PERSON who is stupid enough to use in their language this Israeli left and Israeli right terminology. It means nothing and is abusive towards historical understanding.


How did Jews perish in the Nazi Holocaust? How did it happen? How did Hitler seize the power? Who did Hitler first place in concentration camps and was it the Jews? Why did Islam and the Nazis morph in those years.


Or I will put this in a different form. There must be no mental block placed that will stop us learning about these things.


(ADL poll was May 13, 2014)


Nigerian states where Boko Haram operates and that implement forms of Sharia

The anti-Marxist and anti-Trotskyist “leftist” group of has played down the role of Islam and Jihad in the Nigerian girls kidnapping. That takes some doing does it not?


They state a truth, that the US is using the issue of the girls in order to further its own interests in Africa as does the EU, as a counter also against China. In other words the US operates on a world perspective of counter revolution.


This fact is underlined today on Atlas Shrugs by Pamela Geller. Pamela documents how in 2013 the US Government of Obama and Humas Rights Watch were threatening the Nigerian Government with sanctions, and the US and EU were taking the side of the Boko Haram. But on which side is the anti-Trotskysit wsws?


But in a specific way the wsws are also on the side of the Boko Haram and of Islamist victimhood propaganda, which also is the position of Obama (as an example the Obama 2009 speech in Cairo to which he invited The Muslim Brotherhood and attacked the Mubarak Government) Note well the wsws is on that side of the fence, was then, is now.


This is what this anti-Trotskyist group wrote a week ago about the Nigerian Boko Haram kidnappings:


The government’s initial reaction to the kidnapping was symptomatic of its attitude toward the country’s predominantly Muslim north, Nigeria’s most impoverished region. With a majority Muslim population—as opposed to the predominantly Christian south, the oil-producing region where Jonathan is from—it has been subjected to increasing marginalization and repression since the Boko Haram insurgency began five years ago.

The government has sought to manipulate regional, religious and ethnic divides in the country in order to divert mass social unrest and defend the monopoly of wealth and power exercised by a narrow wealthy layer.

Despite the rapid growth of the country’s economy due to energy exports—GDP nearly doubled from $263 billion in 2012 to $510 billion in 2013—the majority of the population is worse off than before independence in 1960. Social inequality is as stark in Nigeria as anywhere on the planet. While the looting of the country’s oil earnings has created some 20 billionaires, 99.5 million people, or over 60 percent of the Nigerian people, subsist in absolute poverty, with an income of less than a dollar per day.

Fighting in the north, which has been placed under a state of emergency since last year, has claimed the lives of over 6,000 Nigerians since it began in 2009 and over 1,500 just since the beginning of this year. The majority of the victims are civilians who have lost their lives both to Boko Haram terrorist attacks and brutal repression directed against the population by Nigerian security forces.


So the wsws in the above is sitting on the fence and is not prepared to attack the Islam of Boko Haram.


I think a true Trotskyist position is to defend the Nigerians fighting Islam in Nigeria, and in so far as it acts to support the Nigerian Government against Islamic Fascism …which is promoted by the Obama regime especially and by Republicans also like John McCain.


The wsws is also opposed in every way to Israel, and is a big supporter of Palestinian Arab Fascism and Antisemitism.


We on 4international are opposed. We note that there is a direct line between Boko Haram and all other forms of Islam, which includes the ideology of the Palestinian Arabs.


In other words it is Antisemitism, a particular form of leftist ANTI-MARXIST antisemitism


The wsws can be summed up as a group which talks Trotsky but is actually an anti-Trotskyist group. Islam is the touchstone of the Left today.




A discussion took place on Talk Radio Europe last Tuesday. As I listened they discussed the Boko Haram issue, then the Ukraine issue.


They discussed the Boko Haram issue for 20 minutes and the general drift of the discussion was a determined effort by the two Americans on the show Herta and her husband Nathan Thomas to stop any discussion of the historical roots of Islam. Those two firmly believe that Islam is a religion of Peace that has been hijacked by some extremists. But when it comes to history those two do not want to know.


Another regular on the programme called Barry Nathan, a Jewish man who lives in Spain and an ex-Brit, just simply does not know, about history or anything. All his contributions serve as comical but sad diversion.


I have to emphasise that the two Americans, the Thomas husband and wife team, were very opposed to an historical understanding of Islam.


But this issue is so dominating in today’s world that the second issue up for discussion, the Ukraine, actually swung around once again to discussing Islam.


I have to emphasise that this hatred of discussing Islam from an historical perspective is very deep and prevalent. When the issue of dhimmi was brought up by the compere the reaction of especially Herta Thomas was immediate and in polemical terms quite brutal. Sadly she succeeded, with the help of her husband Nathan Thomas (ex ABC lead reporter) so well that the discussion did not deal with the historical record of Islam


It will be a hard road ahead…but there are big lessons in that discussion


This issue can only be resolved not on an individual basis. We need a socialist party that will examine the true nature of Islam.


When I was a kid in education life we learned a Word called Gestalt and it has never left me…I mean it as a struggle to see the whole. For some reason the delight which these Ukrainian Fascists are taking in KILLING reminds me more and more of the delight that Islam takes in killing, I think in particular of the Young swish killer in Boston Marathon event. There is a world wide capitalist crisis and it takes many forms but can these events be unified through deeper study and understanding. The following report is from a Facebook friend Roxana Iancu (
MASSACRE IN MARIUPOL: Up to 100 people shot dead by pro-regime forces for celebrating Victory Day over fascism

In the morning of the 9th of May the newly appointed head of the police department in Mariupol, Valery Androschuk has called for a gathering of local police personnel. He was accompanied by the head of the special battalion “Denpr” (a newly formed death squad of neo-nazi). During the meeting the police chief read to the policemen the order to disperse the rally on Victory day over fascism and arrest ‘the most active citizens’. This victory day rally is held every year on the 9th of May to remember the victory over Hitler fascism in 1945.

The policemen refused to fulfill the order of the newly appointed chief. Then the head of department Andruschuk shot one of them with a pistol on a rank-and-file policeman. His colleagues immediately shot back – the head of the police department was wounded and the head of the death squad ‘Dnepr’ was killed on the spot. The personnel of police refuse to obey any orders and declared that they would not wage a war against their own people. Androschuk barricaded himself in one of the offices of the building and called the National Guard to help him in the police department. Immediately APCs, ‘National guard’ and Right Sector militants were sent to suppress the defection of the police to the people of the city. Those promptly arrived and started an attack. At least 14 APCs and tanks were deployed to Mariupol by the Ukrainian government. The citizens of the city immediately took to the streets and tried to stop the tanks with their bare hands. In the end they were not successful. And so the tanks started the onslaught onto the city.

Local residents tried to defend their policemen but the “National Guard” started shooting at the civilians in the streets. Then the APCs and “National Guard” surrounded the police department and opened fire with machine guns and RPGs.

Policemen returned fire. In the end the police department was set ablaze. Some of the policemen were burnt alive inside the building. The police chief Valery Androschuk tried to escape from the police building during the assault. Locals caught and beat him. There is no information yet on the fate of the police chief. It is unclear if he could flee. The images show the police station, which burned to the ground.

Unarmed civilians in the city center tried to confront the Ukrainian Army, when it started to kill even more civilians. The retreating Army shot indiscriminately on unarmed civilians, who gathered near the burning police station. Dozens were killed.

According to Russia Today, one of their local reporters was shot and injured. Ukrainian authorities denied a medical jet from Germany that should transport the injured reporter to a hospital the landing.

Then people started to take over. One of the APCs was seized by them. People on the streets started to chase the army and build barricades. The rest of police personnel, who survived the onslaught, joined them. After the strong confrontation the “National Guard” and Right sector militants had to retreat from the town. The mayor also fled the town.

The acting Interior Minister Arsen Avakov and the government in Kiev stated about the vents that at least 20 “terrorists” (this is how Kiev authorities now dub the unarmed citizens of southeastern Ukraine) were killed and four more were taken captive. According to local residents of Mariupol and doctors from the hospital the death toll of the 9th was up to 100 people who were killed.

Today, on the 10th of May 2014, local residents started a spontaneous rally under slogan: “Glory to our policemen – our defenders! Down with police-murderers and the National guard””. In the afternoon of the day there are still dozens of dead bodies lying around in the streets of the city, who were killed by the Army yesterday. But the Army has now withdrawn from the city and the city is now completely under control of the local population. See More

Photo: MASSACRE IN MARIUPOL: Up to 100 people shot dead by pro-regime forces for celebrating Victory Day over fascism

In the morning of the 9th of May the newly appointed head of the police department in Mariupol, Valery Androschuk has called for a gathering of local police personnel. He was accompanied by the head of the special battalion "Denpr" (a newly formed death squad of neo-nazi). During the meeting the police chief read to the policemen the order to disperse the rally on Victory day over fascism and arrest 'the most active citizens'. This victory day rally is held every year on the 9th of May to remember the victory over Hitler fascism in 1945.

This is not conspiracy theory. But the world of the capitalist system never gives the people the truth, and always Works in secret, so therefore its whole rule is conspiracy. There is a general conspiracy therefore which is led by the United States of all parties republican or democrat which is involved in using Islam and brutal Islamic Practice for its own ends, which is of course in basic form “Counter Revolution”. This is the case with the Nigerian abducted girls and the way that the US and EU suddenly hands on hearts suddenly after WEEKS decide to move in on Nigeria, the richest country in Africa, and Africa is a very rich in resources continent.


The overall strategy or conspiracy of US is to forestall revolution and promote counter revolution. The broad outlines can be seen in the way that Europe is flooded with immigrants, thus creating tensions, breaking down old parties and trade union/labour structures, compromising the anti-Marxist left, and creating real terror situations as in the London and Madrid Islamist bombings. These divided the people and did not deter Islam, rather helped to promote Islam. Counter Revolution, Vietnam being a good example. Iraq which removed Saddam Hussein a major bulwark despite his cruel ways against Jihad and Islam (he was secular and his Iraq was secular)


The US stirred up Civil War in the old Yugoslavia, which broadly socialist and multicultural country was wiped off the map and many leaders placed in The Hague, a court which was inspired and financed by NATO.


As Obama closed in on Mubarak there was no support from anywhere, even from Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller the latter having flirted with clear opponents of Mubarak (Sand Monkey)


Was the Blair and Bush alliance with Gadhafi a ruse? Obviously. They may have been sincere in this but other forces the state within the state, knew differently. The Jihad against Gadhafi was armed, removed, then Stevens the Ambassador was sacrificed to get the Blind Sheikh criminal out of jail, these arms then led to many places among which IS NIGERIA AND BOKO HARAM. See how ordinary people, in this case teenage girls are forced to suffer for all of this. That really is small change. I have in front of me beheadings in Syria (first the camera lingers over headless trunks then the 7 heads in a row people must learn about this barbarism and the nature of the period we are living inside of) but remember this happened wholesale in the woods of Bosnia where Clinton and Izetbegovic guested these Islamist Savages.


Many people make big mistakes about this. This is NOT conspiracy. The US, EU and NATO are not crude operators. The CIA is known for setting the scene then sitting back and watching. Out of that situation accidents or incidents come about, such as Racak, and the CIA (William Walker) are very fast to capitalise on those incidents or near accidents. In this the Media are the big problem for freedom lovers.


US is now operating on many fronts, so many it is hard to keep up. This is in line with the crisis in the capitalist system overall. In Spain to give one example SOCIAL REVOLUTION DOES THREATEN. The history of Spain IS social revolution and social revolution avoided through Fascism and Betrayal by worker leadership. But now the unemployment of 70 per cent among Spanish youth is UNSOLVABLE


Thus once again to Ukraine. Long prepared by the US,  their toadies in the EU, NATO and a hundred Soros led organisations…they now move in on Russia. The aim was to stymie Russian defence. Russia defended by defending its sea outlet in Crimea, which Khrushchev Stalinist that he was had given to Imperialism, just as Gorbachev had surrendered the Warsaw pact on the promise that US would not move in (Clinton lost no time in doing just that which was also the meaning of the war on Yugoslavia) But the situation of Ukraine is most dangerous. The US et all back clear Fascists in Kiev. They stir up Civil war. They kill and are fond of killing. This is very like the Nazis. Yet the War machine from Kiev is backed continually by the Media by continual references to Putin as a strong and all powerful leader, which he definitely is not. Putin is in fact cautious and the US proceeds with wild abandon.


The position of 4international is always that in these conditions the US and EU party of War the New Nazis, are going to use Antisemitism more and more. The Jews in Israel see this and understand this. But they are paralysed.


The biggest alliance in the world today is the alliance of the US and EU with Iran, and through Iran with the whole fascist concept of Palestinianism.


But the Jews are hog tied by leaders WHO CANNOT ACT, THEY CANNOT DO ANYTHING


Martin Sherman can write all the articles very well penned he likes. But he cannot lead to any action by Israel. Israel cannot defend itself. Israel cannot act in one solitary thing today. It is totally hog tied.


Yet all these US fascist interventions throughout the world, leading to dictatorship at home in the States, dictatorship in EU where Pail Weston was arrested for quoting from Churchill on Islam…in that context of growing reaction Jews think they are safe!!!


With ALL these interventions the latest being the Seals in Nigeria why not a Power/Obama intervention into Israel- so in concluding these are the words transcripted from that notorious Samantha Power interview in 2002


Nothing really therefore has changed since Power gave this interview.



{begin transcription here}



INTERVIEWER: “Let me give you a thought experiment here, and it is the following: without addressing the Palestine — Israel problem, let’s say you were an advisor to the President of the United States, how would you respond to current events there? Would you advise him to put a structure in place to monitor that situation, at least if one party or another [starts] looking like they might be moving toward genocide?”


POWER: “What we don’t need is some kind of early warning mechanism there, what we need is a willingness to put something on the line in helping the situation. Putting something on the line might mean alienating a domestic constituency of tremendous political and financial import; it may more crucially mean sacrificing — or investing, I think, more than sacrificing — billions of dollars, not in servicing Israel’s military, but actually investing in the new state of Palestine, in investing the billions of dollars it would probably take, also, to support what will have to be a mammoth protection force, not of the old Rwanda kind, but a meaningful military presence. Because it seems to me at this stage (and this is true of actual genocides as well, and not just major human rights abuses, which were seen there), you have to go in as if you’re serious, you have to put something on the line.


Unfortunately, imposition of a solution on unwilling parties is dreadful. It’s a terrible thing to do, it’s fundamentally undemocratic. But, sadly, we don’t just have a democracy here either, we have a liberal democracy. There are certain sets of principles that guide our policy, or that are meant to, anyway. It’s essential that some set of principles becomes the benchmark, rather than a deference to [leaders] who are fundamentally politically destined to destroy the lives of their own people. And by that I mean what Tom Freidman has called “Sharafat.” I do think in that sense, both political leaders have been dreadfully irresponsible. And, unfortunately, it does require external intervention.”




Words against Iran and against Obama/Rice are useless.

Those of us who support Israel are most worried and have been for a long time. It is not at all as many Israelis see it. If Israel was to pulverise the Iranian Fascists by whatever manner then there would be a lot of support in many countries outside of Israel for this.


So often Israelis see only these Fascist Anti-Marxist Leftists operating on the social media and this I feel is always misleading because they are small and hyper active in their missionary Antisemitism


And apart from that it does not matter anyway because the lives of millions of Jews are at stake here.


How fast Iran can créate a nuclear bomb depends totally on the number of centrifuges it has to opérate on the enrichment (If you have to concrete your yard then a hundred cement mixers will do it in say 20 minutes)


The real problem here is not what Netanyahu says. You can agree with what he says here. It is rather what he does which is nothing.


Israel has to stop this Iran bomb programme by action. This is the issue that has to be fought out in Israel and in every country.


We are descended from Lucy. Just accept this for the sake of this argument. Lucy was a doer, she was a Walker, she used her hands nearly like we do. But her brain gave her a dim view of her world compared to us today. BUT IT WAS THAT PRACTICE OR ACTION THAT CHANGED LUCY INTO HUMANS.


This is a simple concept but have you noticed how very educated people are unable to actually DO anything. I have.


There is no solution to this quandary except action



(start on Rice visit to Israel)

The deep divide between the Obama administration and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on the Iranian nuclear issue resurfaced during this week’s two-day (May 7-8) Jerusalem talks held by the visiting US National Security Advisor Susan Rice, who was joined by Wendy Sherman, US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs and head of the US delegation to the nuclear talks.

Rice reiterated President Barack Obama’s contention that Iran and the P5+1 countries must reach a deal by the year’s end, before internal political conditions in Iran alter the landscape. The US urges Israel to recognize that Iran is already irreversibly a nuclear threshold state, and so it should be permitted to maintain a civilian nuclear program. This includes uranium enrichment and the construction of new nuclear reactors, with the proviso that Tehran commits not to turn its capabilities to military uses.

The Obama administration is prepared to pledge that every intelligence-gathering method at its disposal will be used to monitor Iran’s nuclear program and ensure that the threshold is not crossed. It promises Israel, as Rice repeated in her Wednesday conversation with Netanyahu, that Obama will not allow Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons.

But debkafile’s sources in Jerusalem report that Netanyahu rejected the American position, arguing that Israel cannot leave its security in the hands of intelligence agencies whose forecasts and evaluations of the past years have often proved inaccurate.

Directly after Netanyahu and Rice met on Wednesday, a senior Israeli official said Israel continues to insist that Iran should not have the right to enrich uranium. The official, who spoke with unusual frankness, said that the Obama administration’s eagerness to seal the deal has more do with US domestic political concerns than Tehran.

 “We would be happy to see July 20 pass without a deal,” the official said, referencing the target date set for a comprehensive agreement. He added that there was worry in Israel that Obama might be tempted to accommodate Iran now, in order to head off potential gains by Republicans in the November mid-term elections.

The Israeli official was emphatic about his bottom line: “Are we going to agree to [let Iran go ahead with] enrichment? No!”

On Thursday, May 8, Netanyahu echoed this outlook, saying: “Iran must not have centrifuges or enriched uranium.” Rice proposed a limit on the number of centrifuges Iran is permitted to operate, as well as a cap on the amount of uranium it can enrich.

Our sources say Netanyahu flatly rejected Rice’s argument that the quantity and sophistication of the centrifuges are not of he highest importance, compared with the real question of how many centrifuges Iran will be allowed to operate under close international scrutiny.

“The best defense against a nuclear Iran is to keep a nuclear weapon out of its hands. Tehran needs centrifuges and enriched uranium for the single purpose of building a nuclear weapon. Tehran must be deprived of this capability,” Netanyahu said Thursday.

According to debkafile’s sources in Washington, ahead of the Rice visit to Israel, administration officials conferred with several former Israeli security figures who are regularly consulted by Netanyahu on the nuclear issue. They were asked for an opinion on whether the prime minister would buy a compromise that permitted Iran to keep several thousand centrifuges and enrich a specified amount of uranium up to a low five percent grade.

Those advisers came back to Netanyahu with the impression that Obama was fixated on a fast deal regardless of Israel’s opposition. They also warned him that his rejection of the US compromise proposal would bring down on Israel’s head a propaganda campaign in both the local and international media that would impugn his credibility on the Iranian nuclear issue.

Jerusalem regards the Newsweek charge of Israeli spies crossing the red line in America as the opening shot of this campaign.

Officials in Jerusalem are also rubbishing a report on the subject that the Yediot Aharonot Hebrew tabloid is running Friday, May 9. It quotes Uzi Ilam, a long-retired former head of the Israeli Atomic Energy Committee, as arguing that Netanyahu is using the pressing Iran nuclear issue for political gain, when in fact, he says, Iran won’t be able to make a nuclear bomb for 10 years.
Knowledgeable officials say his information is years out of date. Almost all leading US, European and Israeli nuclear experts agree that Iran has reached the point of being able to manufacture a nuclear bomb in two or three or months











To state what is. To see reality. To act upon that…These concepts were also pit forward in the following paragraphs



I remember some discussions in 1927 in Moscow after Chiang Kaishek stilled the Chinese workers. We predicted

this ten days before and Stalin opposed us with the argument that Borodin was vigilant, that Chiang Kaishek would not have the possibility to betray us, etc. I believe that it was eight or ten days later that the tragedy occurred and our comrades expressed optimism because our analysis was so clear that everyone would see it and we would be sure to win the party. I answered that the strangulation of the Chinese revolution is a thousand times more important for the masses than our predictions. Our predictions can win some few intellectuals who take an interest in such things, but not the masses. The military victory of Chiang Kaishek will inevitably provoke a depression and this is not conducive to the growth of a revolutionary fraction.


You can imagine the same kinds of arguments as the Stalinists were putting forward in 1927, Borodin (Stalinist) was going to remain vigilant, so Netanyahu or Livni will also be vigilant, so therefore a Palestinian Jihad state is not going to be a problema, they are so vigilant!!!


But the very act itself would be a massive physical and psychological defeat. Despite the majority of Jews in Israel being very afraid the leadership ploughs ahead and under pressure from international capitalism they would give in, and stop fighting, against the Jihad. The results would be horrible for Jews. The psychological effects would cause a total deadening and a cynicism among the best Jews. They may even turn to defeatist mysticism.


This is an effort by Martin Sherman to understand the reality facing Israel. Israel as long as it is led by false prophets is indeed wallowing naked in the Winter snow, and then some…

What Martin does not deal with fully is what does it take to be a “good prophet” in this era. The bourgeoisie is in big trouble, even a blind man can see that. America is in debt by SO much, I do not want to go into the process here. There is SO much credit splashing around the capitalist markets. Deals are made electronically with no direct human intervention in unbelievable fractions of seconds. America supports Islam and the Jihad and does this now quite openly while those ideological slaves of Obama ideology will openly call you a racist if you even question Islam (here Russell Brand on Halal is merely carrying on the traditions of Karen Armstrong). The British Government leans towards Sharia and allows the brutality of Halal meat being consumed from British supermarkets unlabelled. The girls and people of Nigeria are being whipped into accepting the slavery of the ancient Islam and so on. This is the first weakness of the approach of Martin Sherman. For good or ill you HAVE to posit Israel of today inside that overall crisis of the system under which we live and you have to do this consistently and almost ruthlessly.

For my money the starting point is the still amazingly concise points laid down by Marx and Engels in the Manifesto. Without this guide to knowledge 8that is the method behind the Manifesto) then we are still and always condemned to tramping around in the dark.




Shakespeare on the futility of self-deception 

I believe that to adequately comprehend the situation we are in, we must understand the process that brought it about.

At the risk of being flamboyant, I should like to begin my explanation of the foretold futility of the “peace-process” with a quote from Shakespeare’s Richard II, Act I, Scene 3.

Although some might find the connection between the citation and the Arab-Israeli conflict e abstruse, I will explain the relevance shortly, and hope that, like myself, the Post readership will find it instructive in elucidating the defective rationale on which the entire peace process was founded.

The quotation relates to an incident in which Henry Bolingbroke (later Henry IV) is exiled by Richard II (ruled 1377-1399) and is distraught at being banished from his beloved England.

His father, John O’ Gaunt, attempts to assuage his distress by advising him to fend off the hardships of exile by imagining that they do not exist: 

Look, what thy soul holds dear, imagine it
To lie that way thou go’st, not whence thou comest:
Suppose the singing birds musicians,
The flowers fair ladies, and thy steps no more
Than a delightful measure or a dance;
For gnarling sorrow hath less power to bite
The man that mocks at it and sets it light.

But the realistic Bolingbroke responds by rejecting the recommendation for self-delusion and wishful thinking, declaring forthrightly: 

O, who can hold a fire in his hand
By thinking on the frosty Caucasus?
Or cloy the hungry edge of appetite
By bare imagination of a feast?
Or wallow naked in December snow
By thinking on fantastic summer’s heat?

The relevance for the ‘peace process’ 

In a very fundamental way, this citation conveys precisely why the peace process was a forgone failure.

For it portrays the belief, held by some, that reality can be transformed by wishful thinking; that one can forge changes in reality by sheer force of imagination and wish away inconvenient facts by denying their existence.

It is precisely the intellectual licentiousness of the kind advocated by John O’ Gaunt that afflicted the architects of the Oslo process, who seemed – indeed, still seem – sadly immune to the sober realism of Bolingbroke. They cling to the belief that imagination can transform “singing birds” into “musicians,” and “flowers” into “fair ladies,” steadfastly refusing to acknowledge that one cannot “hold a fire in one’s hand [b]y thinking on the frosty Caucasus.”

Indeed, the entire “peace process” has, from the outset, been based on suppositions detached from reality; and the policies adopted to promote it were futile attempts to bend reality to unrealistic desires.

Growing awareness of futility 

There are growing signs that awareness of this futility is beginning to dawn – earlier for some, later for others. However, as I shall explain (next week), this is not necessarily producing proposals for alternatives any better, or less hazardous, than the doomed twostate approach.

The futility of the peace process was always a foretold inevitability.

For the structure of the bargain that needs to be struck for the twostate paradigm, on which it is based, to be viable, is unattainable.

It was Maj.-Gen. (res.) Giora Eiland, former head of the National Security Council, who remarked, half a decade ago: “The maximum any Israeli government can offer is less than the minimum any Palestinian leader can accept. The real gap between the sides is much greater than perceived, and that gap is growing.”

Sadly, perhaps the most fitting analogy to graphically convey the situation is that of two cowboys, the one in a black hat, the other in a white one, facing each other in a duel in the main street of a dusty western town, when just before they “go for their guns” the one growls at the other, “This town ain’t big enough for the both of us.”

This is precisely the situation that prevails vis-à-vis Israel and Palestinians with regard to the territory between the (Jordan) River and the (Mediterranean) Sea.

There is no way to arrive at a stable geo-political configuration that involves dividing the sovereignty over this territory between Jews and Arabs And let me stress, I make this determination as a political scientist – not a as religious fundamentalist or radical right-wing ideologue.

Eroding position; desperate proposals 

The increasingly evident futility of the endeavor to reach a negotiated settlement is manifesting itself in two main ways: (a) Increasing erosion of Israeli positions; and (b) Increasingly desperate proposals both on the Left and Right.

To grasp just how far Israeli positions have been eroded, consider the following citation from a senior mainstream politician, who almost four decades ago predicted with chilling accuracy what would come about if Israel were to embrace the two-state paradigm: “The establishment of such a state means the inflow of combat- ready Palestinian forces (more than 25,000 men under arms) into Judea and Samaria; this force, together with the local youth, will double itself in a short time. It will not be short of weapons or other [military] equipment, and in a short space of time, an infrastructure for waging war will be set up in Judea, Samaria and the Gaza Strip. Israel will have problems in preserving day-to-day security, which may drive the country into war, or undermine the morale of its citizens. In time of war, the frontiers of the Palestinian state will constitute an excellent staging point for mobile forces to mount attacks on infrastructure installations vital for Israel’s existence…

and to cause bloodshed among the population… in areas adjacent to the frontier line.”

Even more remarkable than the accuracy of the prophesy is the identity of the prophet. Those were the prescient words of none other than Shimon Peres, who now enthusiastically endorses the policy he urged Israel to eschew.

Even more significant erosion 

But perhaps an even more dramatic illustration of how gravely Israel’s positions have been eroded in the futile pursuit of an agreement with Palestinians is provided by the text of the final address by Yitzhak Rabin to the Knesset on October 5, 1995, seeking ratification of the Oslo II Accords – a mere month before his assassination.

In it Rabin rejected the idea of Palestinian statehood, declaring that: “… the permanent solution… will include… a Palestinian entity which will… be an entity which is less than a state…” He went on to assert: “We will not return to the 4 June 1967 lines… These are the main changes, not all of them, which we envision… in the permanent solution: “First and foremost, united Jerusalem, which will include both Ma’aleh Adumim and Givat Ze’ev – as the capital of Israel, under Israeli sovereignty… “The security border of the State of Israel will be located in the Jordan Valley, in the broadest meaning of that term.

“Changes which will include the addition of Gush Etzion, Efrat, Betar and other communities, most of which are in the area east of what was the Green Line prior to the Six Day War.

“The establishment of blocs of settlements in Judea and Samaria, like the one in Gush Katif.”

This address was delivered after he had been awarded the Nobel Peace prize and hailed as a “valiant warrior for peace.” Yet today, if any Israeli leader were to embrace the Nobel Peace laureate’s vision for a permanent settlement with the Palestinians, he would be dismissed as an unreasonable and unrealistic extremist.

Understanding the impasse: Israel’s twin imperatives 

The discovery of the failure of the peace process is not a matter of hindsight. For anyone with the slightest grasp of the basic elements of political science, international relations, the theory of the nation, and the stability of nation-states, it was a foretold inevitability.

Belatedly, the validity and viability of the paradigm that has dominated the discourse – the two-state land-for-peace approach – based on political appeasement and territorial withdrawal – is being questioned by mainstream pundits across the political spectrum.

Thus in 2007, Maj.-Gen. Uzi Dayan, formerly deputy chief of staff and head of the National Security Council, observed: “The landfor- peace idea has now collapsed.

We have to find another way, and a new concept is urgently needed.”

Echoing precisely the same sentiments, distinctly left-wing pundit Prof. Carlo Strenger wrote in Haaretz: “It is time to have a clear-headed, hard look at reality: The two state solution is dead.

Where do we go from here?” To understand the reasons for, and the nature of, the impasse, we need to recognize that for Israel to survive over time as the nationstate of the Jewish people, it must contend with two vital imperatives: The Geographic Imperative and the Demographic Imperative.

In addressing these two imperatives, Israel faces two mortal dangers: The two-state paradigm – which does not address the Geographic Imperative; The one-state paradigm – which does not address the Demographic Imperative.

Not ‘right-wing scaremongering’ 

The visuals distributed to the JNF audience prior to my address (“Israel: Through the binoculars of a Palestinian intelligence officer”), clearly illustrate why the two-state proposal would make Israel geographically untenable.

Not only would the width of the country – in its most populous areas – be reduced to a minuscule 15-25 km. (roughly the distance from Beverly Hills to Malibu along Sunset Boulevard), but these would be completely dominated topographically by the limestone hills that comprise the “West Bank” and rise above it from the east. Any forces – regular or irregular – deployed on their western slopes, will command: 
• Virtually all major airfields in the country (civilian and military), including the only international airport; 
• Major sea ports and naval bases; 
• The fresh water system; 
• Main land transportation axes (road and rail); 
• Principal power plants; 
• The nation’s parliament;
• Crucial centers of government and military command; 
• Eighty percent of the civilian population and the commercial activity in the country.

In any two-state scenario, all of the above would be in range of weapons being used today from areas already transferred to Arab control. This can therefore no longer be dismissed as right-wing scaremongering, for it is merely a prudent extrapolation of the empirical precedent.

Next week – Part II 

In the concluding part of my analysis next week, I shall deal with the remaining topics raised in my address: 
• The Arab Spring as a threat multiplier 
• The irrelevance of assumed Palestinian “sincerity” 
• The Hamas-Fatah rapprochement 
• The one-state paradigm – A precursor to Muslim tyranny 
• Mirror images of desperation: Proposals for unilateral withdrawal vs unilateral annexation/enfranchisement of Arab residents in Judea-Samaria 
• My assessment of what Netanyahu is liable to do 
• My assessment of what Netanyahu ought to do 

I will end next week’s column with the very same words with which I end this one: In the final analysis, between the River and the Sea there will exist either exclusive Jewish sovereignty or exclusive Arab sovereignty.

The side that will prevail, is the side whose national will is the stronger and whose political vision is the sharper.

This is not right-wing extremism or religious fanaticism.

It is merely sound political science.

The issue of the Nigerian girls abduction is really the issue of our times, the Jihad of Muslims and the way this has been used by US and Britian over the years. Angelina Jolie is typical of the problem. Jolie the last time I noticed her was moving in with the Jihad, the Islamic movement in Bosnia and against the Christian Serbs, and was doing everything she could to deny the meaning of Jihad in our modern world. So this morning I saw her hateful face on my televisión screen emoting about the Nigerian girls. It was a busy bar and I could not hear her words but do I need to? Bet she was covering once again for the Jihad just as she did all those years for the Jihad of Izetbegovic and against the Serbs in Bosnia and Kosovo.


The issue of the Nigerian girls was summed up for me also this morning in an interview the BBC did with the Nigerian Minister for Information. The BBC interviewer, a lady with an Arab sounding name, was snappy and hostile, and her attack was against the Nigerian Government and not at all against the forces of Islam. She was full of it! The Minister of Information finally managed to get a Word in and said “If you will only let me explain”… and then he said that of course the Nigerian Government was always concerned about the girls, they were Nigerian after all, and they were trying…BUT he then went on to point out that it was an international issue, and although he did not call it JIHAD, he listed about 12 countries from China to Algeria in which the Jihad had raged. Now this is the thing…The BBC interviewer dropped this way of looking at the Nigerian Girl tragedy like a hot potato.

On 27 June 1995, after deposing his father in a palace coup, Sheikh Hamad became Emir of Qatar and was crowned on 20 June 2000.  Deposed by his own son while visiting Geneva, the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad al-Thani, has said to press he would return, whatever the cost. He dubbed the coup the “abnormal behaviour of an ignorant man”.

The Emir is famous for helping to establish the first Arab international news network, Al Jazeera, when he provided a loan of QAR 500 million ($137 million) to sustain Al Jazeera through its first five years. In late 2012 and early 2013 the Emir was accused of providing financial and material support to terrorist organizations such as Hamas, Ansar Dine, and the Al-Nusra Front.

You couldn’t find a better example of endless double talk. Qatars money is behind a lot of the Arab Spring (terrorist khalifa) movement which is spreading from country to country in the Middle East under the guise of ‘freedom fighters’. It will eventually backfire on him.

David Cameron:  Facilitator or simply a complete dumbass? One minute he vows to fight terrorists, the next he invites terrorist money to triple their revenues – via the UK.


What he is less famous for is his endless funding of mosques to be built across Europe, the facilitation of Arab Wahhabi imams to teach in these mosques. The Emir has also send over 3,000 terrorists to Burma, and women, children and handicapped to commit their duty of jihad in …

England facilitates money like the Qatar Emir. Although you couldn’t tell especially with his poor English, Sheikh Hamad began his education in Qatar and later attended Sandhurst Military Academy in England. He is a regular investor in the London business scene.

Bono, Geldof. Radcliffe. The Queen of England. The BBC. The Sporting Establishment. Football teams like Madrid and Barca funded by Islam.


Then the banning of Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer from the shores of Britain


The recent arrest of Paul Weston of Liberty UK for quoting from a speech by Churchill on Islam


The total silence of the Media on all of these things. The ugly silence of the anti-marxist left.


England as it is now and without a new and revolutionary Trotskyist leadership based on the principles in 4international is already a prisoner of Islam. The marrriage of England and Islam goes far back into history. There is a long record of English people giving up on their own English people and becoming tools of Islam, as Lawrence of Arabia dressed in those flowing robes showed. Peter O’Toole fitted the part. Like Geldoff he also was middle class irish. And Catholic. The present Pope Francis note that he does not utter a peep about the Nigerian kidnapped girls. So there is a whole layer across society in influential positionition based on “palestinianism” and on sympathy with Islam that will be hard to shift, note how the weaknesses of the EDL were used quickly against them 

from… with Islam.

The future King Charles may not be officially a Muslim but he is very, very sympa… a crafty ruling elite indeed.thetic. Charles works might and main to separate English people, especially its youth, from an historical understanding of Islam. Charles could well have taken the ex-nun Karen Armstrong for a wife and they would have made quite a team. Remember also that the Methodists boycott Israel. Remember the Archbishop Ramsey calling Sharia a good thing. The English educational system which is not secular as is that of America and France opens the door in England to Sharia. This educational system is geared to preventing children from understanding about the HISTORY of Islam. But it is this historical understanding of Islam that will be the key and will expose the views of Charles as so much gibberish:


start quote here

Charles first delivered a major address on Islam on October 27, 1993, at the Sheldonian Theatre at Oxford where he is a vice patron of the Centre for Islamic Studies.7 He declared that the usual attitude to Islam

suffers because the way we understand it has been hijacked by the extreme and the superficial. To many of us in the West, Islam is seen in terms of the tragic civil war in Lebanon, the killings and bombings perpetrated by extremist groups in the Middle East, and by what is commonly referred to as “Islamic fundamentalism.”

The Prince of Wales then explained the causes for this distorted understanding:

Our judgement of Islam has been grossly distorted by taking the extremes to the norm. . . . For example, people in this country frequently argue that the Sharia law of the Islamic world is cruel, barbaric and unjust. Our newspapers, above all, love to peddle those unthinking prejudices. The truth is, of course, different and always more complex. My own understanding is that extremes, like the cutting off of hands, are rarely practised. The guiding principle and spirit of Islamic law, taken straight from the Qur’an, should be those of equity and compassion.

Charles suggests that European women may even find something to envy in the situation of their Muslim sisters:

Islamic countries like Turkey, Egypt and Syria gave women the vote as early as Europe did its women-and much earlier than in Switzerland! In those countries women have long enjoyed equal pay, and the opportunity to play a full working role in their societies.

Charles considers Christianity inadequate to the task of spiritual restoration and denigrates science for having caused the West to lose its spiritual moorings. Echoing a common Muslim theme, he declares that “Western civilisation has become increasingly acquisitive and exploitive in defiance of our environmental responsibilities.” Instead, he praises the “Islamic revival” of the 1980s and portrays Islam as Britain’s salvation:

Islam can teach us today a way of understanding and living in the world which Christianity itself is poorer for having lost. At the heart of Islam is its preservation of an integral view of the Universe. Islam-like Buddhism and Hinduism-refuses to separate man and nature, religion and science, mind and matter, and has preserved a metaphysical and unified view of ourselves and the world around us. . . . But the West gradually lost this integrated vision of the world with Copernicus and Descartes and the coming of the scientific revolution. A comprehensive philosophy of nature is no longer part of our everyday beliefs.

He concludes by suggesting that “there are things for us to learn in this system of belief which I suggest we ignore at our peril.”

Mo Farah’s charity is backed by Bono, Sir Bob Geldof, Richard Curtis and Paula Radcliffe. Yet “the body originally charged with delivering Mo’s mission on the ground in the country is headed by Dr ­Musharaf Hussain, an Islamic ­ scholar with anti-West views.” Hussain has exhorted Muslims to wage jihad against the kuffar. Were Bono, Sir Bob Geldof, Richard Curtis and Paula Radcliffe aware of this connection between Farah’s foundation and Hussain? Would they have cared if they had known?

“Say It Ain’t So, Mo – Olympic legend’s foundation is linked to charity run by jihad cleric,” by Dominic Lemanski, Daily Star, May 4, 2014:

OLYMPIC hero Mo Farah’s charity has been linked to a controversial Islamic cleric who has urged British ­Muslims to wage holy war.

The double gold medallist set up the Mo Farah Foundation with his wife Tania in 2011 to help people affected by drought in the Horn of Africa.

So far the charity – which is backed by Bono, Sir Bob Geldof, Richard Curtis and Paula Radcliffe – has raised more than £900,000 for poor ­communities in Somalia.

But the body originally charged with delivering Mo’s mission on the ground in the country is headed by Dr ­Musharaf Hussain, an Islamic ­ scholar with anti-West views.

The Nottingham cleric features in a number of videos on YouTube ­including one in which he uses the offensive ­Arabic term “kuffar” to describe non- Muslims.

He goes on to justify the use of jihad by Muslims against non-believers.

In a 2010 sermon, he said it was a “wise cause” to fight non-believers “because they are tyrants”.

He added: “This is why the Koran says get out and go whether you are lightly armed or heavily armed, whether you have all the means or not, you must take part in this jihad.”

The cleric, awarded an OBE in 2009 for services to community relations, then ranted about Britain and ­America’s involvement in conflicts in Muslim lands.

He is the head of Muslim Hands, a charity that raised an income of more than £13million last year alone.


In accounts posted on the Charity Commission website for the financial year ending March 31, 2013, trustees of the Mo Farah Foundation boasted of their close relationship with Muslim Hands.

They said they helped feed 20,000 people, sunk 50 wells, restored three canals and set up a clinic with Dr Hussain’s help.

Mo’s charity also lists controversial Islamic organisation Tauheedul Relief Trust as a ­ partner on its website. In February the Trust donated £20,000 to the Mo Farah Foundation.

But it later emerged that a school run by the Blackburn-based group forced pupils to wear a hijab in and out of class.

Rules at Tauheedul Islam Girls’ High School also require its 800 pupils to “not bring stationery to school that contains un-Islamic images”. In 2011 Sheikh Abdul Rahman al-Sudais, a Saudi cleric alleged to have referred to Jews as “pigs” and “scum”, visited the school.

Last night Diana Nell – Mo Farah’s sister-in-law, inset, and spokeswoman for the Mo Farah Foundation – claimed the partnership with Muslim Hands was now defunct.

She initially denied any link, saying: “I can categorically tell you we are not partnered with Muslim Hands.”


But when asked why the partnership is mentioned in the most recent report of the trustees, she said: “When we established in 2011 they helped us with ­delivering programmes into Somalia.

“We do not use them now and won’t be doing so in the future.”




The very first thing to grasp about the US and Ukraine is that it is NOT JUST Obama. It is right across the US political elite. All Republicans as well as all democrats are at war with Putin and Russia.


What have they done so far?


The first thing done long ago was that Bill Clinton completely tore up the agreement made between Bush Senior with Gorbachev. This agreement stated that if Russia would dismantle the Warsaw Pact then NATO would stay out of those countries. The American Democrat Bill Clinton (whose position is carried on essentially by Obama) broke that agreement totally, supported by the whole Republican Establishment. That in turn meant that the promises of the US are not worth the paper they are written on. The rise of the more nationalist Putin was the result of that.


Next to Ukraine (I am leaving out here the role of the US in the breaking apart of Yugoslavia and the support for the Islamist Fascists under Izetbegovic against the Christian Serbs, still being played out in the Hague to this very day) and on Ukraine it remains the central fact that Fascists got protests going in the Maidan, and these protests were ramrodded by US CIA money and involvement over many,  many years. The result of this was that a democratically elected Government in Ukraine was forced to resign just two months ago. This is what this is all about. The US stepped beyond parliamentary politics towards Fascism. We on 4international continually warn…this phenomenon is ALWAYS a danger sign on the road to Fascism, and so it is in Ukraine and the wider world.

In this part of the world for historical reasons Fascism is greatly feared. There is thus great fear from workers and nationalists towards such an Obama puppet regime.


Britain is still the key factor in Europe. It is the British continual support for US Imperialist Fascism on the world stage that is so often the key. Germany because of its Nazi history is often far more cautious, but you can always depend on these horrific little Imperialists like William Hague to blow the Russia hating horn


You would think with the likes of British Imperialism to the fore in the war against Russia that Jews with their history of British perfidy would also come to the fore in opposition and fighting on principle but…The great tragedy is that the Jewish people are led by spineless so called Zionists who never once have spoken out against the Obama Fascism abroad, and refused to draw the link to the US support for the brother fascists of Kiev in Fatah and Hamas. The bourgeois Zionist leadership right across the board is spineless and is opportunist to the core. It must be replaced by a Trotskyist Party. Silent on Ukraine are all of the Zionist bloggers. NOT ONE has yet spoken about the burning of the 40 workers in Odessa two days ago. These leaders are unable to fight Fascism in Ukraine and will be unable to fight Fascism in their Jewish Homeland also. This subservience to Obama (and the Republicans even more) means that bourgeois Zionism cannot fight against Palestinianism Fascism to the finish either but must as the reprehensible and phoney Zionist Caroline Glick has done seek an accommodation with the Arab Fascists in Palestinianism


Capitalist leaders burned these Ukrainian workers alive. Right Sector is their tool.


The whole of the Media is silent as anti-Fascist Ukrainians, that is anti-Right Sector backed by Kiev Government and Obama, are roasted alive in a trade union building in Odessa.


There is also complete silence in the Jewish Israeli blogging community on this. The ultra-Fascist type website Gates of Vienna has a piece of lying garbage by a regular contributor there which lies (again) that Lenin was the same as Hitler. AT THIS VERY TIME OF THE ODESSA FIRE. TOTAL GARBAGE PEOPLE ON GATES OF VIENNA.


Meanwhile the Jewish Israeli website Israpundit has exactly at this time when Obama sets out to hammer Russia into submission AND THE ODESSA FIRE an article attacking Putin as just about equal also with Hitler.


Now what precisely is Israpundit (Belman) and Gates of Vienna going to say about this latest Fascist murders in Odessa?


It was in this general area that the Russian Civil War raged in which Trotsky, Lenin and their Red Army defeated the Czarist Whites who were totally Antisemitic, and Lenin and Trotsky in those months and years of the Civil War MADE ANTISEMITISM A CAPITAL OFFENSE. Lenin and Trotsky saved the millions of Jews from immediate Holocaust in 1918!


The fire and killing was carried out by the capitalist governments of the West led by Obama. It is an absolute betrayal of all Jews that these so called Jewish blogs should be supporting Obama and US and EU capitalist elites against Russia in support of open Fascists like Right Sector.


These are the Fascists of Ukraine that were behind the Holocaust of the Jews in Ukraine.


What an utter shame that is for Jews today that their leaders are doing this to them today.


These Fascists in the Right Sector are the same Fascists as you have in Fatah and in Hamas. There is no difference whatsoever, yet you have Jewish bloggers like Belman of Israpundit leading the charge in support of Obama in order to screw Putin and Russia.


Talk about being politically messed up. How could Jews win a single battle with characters like the ex-Toronto lawyer Belman entering into politics in retirement with his pro Obama (over the hounding of Putin and Russia)…HOW?


It is quite impossible for Jews in our epoch of drive towards Fascism in all countries to win one battle, and even to save themselves as Jews. Yet everybody except me is silent over this Edward S May and Ted Belman. Where is the fight for principles? Why are Jews silent on Right Sector in Ukraine? Right Sector IS Hamas and Fatah, all equal in hatred of Jews.


It was actually the same fate as handed out to these poor Nigerian girls…the same Fascist forces at work behind both. The Nigerian girls are by now sold into the slavery of Muslim Sharia marriage destined for captured slaves. That is captured Christian slaves as Francis in the Vatican is quiet as a little mouse in the face of the Jihad…lefty anti Marxist Wee Francie!


Obama, the West and the BBC have set up this burning in Odessa. The betrayal of Jews is carried out by blogs like that of May and Belman. They set the scene and the thugs of Right Sector move in. may and Belman have set the scene for this burning of anti fascists. How horrible for Jews!


All of this bears out the analysis of 4international. It was clearly a CIA promoted Fascist Coup in Kiev. Those protesting in Maidan were ramrodded by Fascists just as was the Arab Spring. Nothing was spontaneous. It had been planned and prepared for years. Then accident enters in and they can move fast while lack of leadership hamstrings the antifascists.




That is forced from power by armed bodies of men on the streets.


That is the clear definition of Fascism. Yet May and Belman cannot call it like that for a single second. That means only one thing that they do not understand what Fascism is and thus are a huge danger to Jews, because Jews under Fascism are always in great danger.


They will do the same to Jews everywhere. Belman now thinks he is safe in Israel. Bear a thought Belman for the Jews in the world, including vulnerable non-Jews like me who support the Jews and Israel. Bear a thought Belman!


This is indeed serious stuff. The Ukrainian fighters against this Fascism, and those just vulnerable, had retreated to the trade union building in Odessa. News only came via twitter etc. The media were not interested. The Jewish bloggers looked away.


Some of these anti Fascists jumped from the fire. Some sat on window sills preparing themselves to jump. Comparisions with 9-11 are obvious and actually the same forces are at work…the Fascists there were the Bin Laden Fascists of Islam  JUST AS IN THE HOLOCAUST Islam was joining with Imperialism.


And just with the Nigerian girls the Fascists had no pity. When they jumped to the ground and injured they were surrounded by the Right Sector Fascists of Obama and Cameron and killed anyway.


The Odessa police paid by Kiev puppets of Obama looked on. They did not do a thing.


This shows the desperate plight of all workers and youth in Ukraine with the coming to power of this Right Sector Obama promoted Fascist Government.


Putin is weak. Putin is a weak man and shows all the weakness of Stalinism.


There is only one thing for a Russian Revolutionary Government to do, a government that would be led by TROTSKYISM. That is to have moved immediately against the Fascist coup in Kiev, defeated the Fascists, organised new elections in which the CIA and Obama would have no part to play thus a true election (they would be arrested at once), then to arrest and place on trial all of these fascist savages of Right Sector. Only that would have prevented the Odessa murders.


Let us see what will happen. But one thing I do see. Those Jewish leaders like I have mentioned who have not fought Fascism in Ukraine will not fight the Fascism of Hamas and Fatah either.





Totally silent on the terror that 200 plus Nigerian girls are facing…that is the present and ALL of the anti-Marxist left groups, has not MENTIONED IT





Imagine, for the moment, the horror, the terror that that these young girls are facing now, and probably will face for the rest of their lives – See more at:



Pamela Geller, Breitbart: Hundreds of Schoolgirls Kidnapped by Muslim Group Sold into Sex Slavery

Screen Shot 2014-05-01 at 7.46.03 PM


Must read.  Go read the whole thing.

“Hundreds of Schoolgirls Kidnapped by Muslim Group Sold into Sex Slavery,” Pamela Geller, Breitbart, May 1, 2014

Nigeria’s Daily Trust reported Monday that “most of the 234 Borno schoolgirls in Boko Haram captivity have been ferried abroad to Chad and Cameroon after they were married off to sect members on N2,000 bride price each.”

Two thousand Nigeria naira amounts to $12.45 for each girl.

Even as this savagery escalates, however, no one is discussing the ideology that compels this war on innocents. These young girls are considered war booty under Islam. This is consistent with Islamic teaching and with what Muhammad, “the perfect model,” did with the spoils of jihadi war.

Imagine, for the moment, the horror, the terror that that these young girls are facing now, and probably will face for the rest of their lives. Unimaginable. But Islamic supremacists and Islamic apologists are working furiously to make sure that no one talks about it.

Boko Haram is the same Islamist group that has slaughtered over 2,596 Nigerians in the first three months of 2014–all for the cause of establishing an Islamic state in Nigeria. The Islamic jihadists are acting with impunity. They know that the government can do nothing to stop them. Just recently, these jihadists left 71 dead in a bombing at a bus station at rush hour. And the day before that, this same Muslim group killed 68 people in an attack on their village. Terrified villagers were shot to death as they fled.

This is genocide. This is ethnic cleansing. This is jihad. But there is something more heinous than the conquest and slaughter rooted in jihad doctrine: the silence and the sanction of the West. The world says nothing. The only thing more overwhelming than the body count in the global jihad is the denial, apathy, and endless apologies for Islam that we hear from the mainstream media and the governments of the West. CNN says that the kidnapping of hundreds of schoolgirls by jihadists “isn’t shocking.”

My fellow human beings, it is shocking and savage. We are descending into a world of savagery sanctioned by the “civilized.” The modern age of the savage is upon us. For reasons that only Barack Obama can answer, the State Department took far too long to designate this savage Islamist group, Boko Haram, a terrorist organization. When State Department officials finally did designate it a foreign terrorist organization, they did so while never mentioning that the people being terrorized are Christians who are being targeted for their beliefs. In fact, they implied that the group had other motivations and even that it had “legitimate concerns.”

“These designations are an important and appropriate step, but only one tool in what must be a comprehensive approach by the Nigerian government to counter these groups through a combination of law enforcement, political, and development efforts, as well as military engagement, to help root out violent extremism while also addressing the legitimate concerns of the people of northern Nigeria,” the State Department said.

The idea that a jihadist group that slaughters in the cause of Islam practically every day and whose very name means “Western education is sinful” has “legitimate concerns,” or that its supporters do, exposes the dangerous motives of the pro-jihadist Obama administration.

Boko Haram enslaves schoolgirls. It sets schools ablaze and slits the throats of those trying to escape out the windows. Boko Haram targets teachers and doctors, but above all, Christians. What possible legitimate concerns could these savages have? Imposing Islam is not a legitimate concern.

This is the world Barack Obama has made. The world’s policeman is no longer on the beat, and the savages know it

Universities in Canada and the United States as well are no longer institutions of higher learning. They’re propaganda factories for the Left, at which only one point of view is ever aired or accepted — and that point of view is authoritarian, anti-Western, anti-Semitic, and anti-Christian, all the while parading under the banner of “multiculturalism” and “tolerance.”

“Anti-Israel BDS Resolutions Seize Campuses in Ontario, Canada,” by Christine Williams, Gatestone Institute, April 22, 2014:

Under the guise of promoting peace and human rights, resolutions to join Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions [BDS] drives are being foisted on Canadian university campuses to push the agenda of the Muslim terrorist group, Hamas, to destroy Israel.

It is Hamas—an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood—that has fueled and directed the BDS and Israel Apartheid Week campaigns on university campuses across North America through chapters of the Muslim Student Association and the Palestine Solidarity Network.

Despite drawing a negligible fraction of the student population, the votes are gaining traction. According to the website of the Palestinian BDS National Committee, BDS is a global campaign designed to pressure Israel to end its so-called “occupation and colonization of all Arab lands.” Hidden is the real BDS agenda: to delegitimize and ultimately obliterate Israel by destroying its economy.

Also concealed in these drives are Israel’s reason for so-called “occupation,” and the fact that Palestinians are treated better in Israel than by their own vicious leadership who sometimes even use their own people as human shields.

Toronto’s Ryerson University students reportedly became the 11th student union to vote in support of the anti-Israel BDS campaign, giving “student politicians” the mandate to pressure the university administration to cut ties with all companies that support what the BDS campaign asserts is “Israeli apartheid.” Not only do they invariably fail to provide any evidence to support that allegation, they fail to mention the very real apartheid that still exists against Palestinians in Lebanon and Kuwait, where they are forbidden to hold a whole array of jobs and privileges enjoyed by other residents. They also fail to mention the very real apartheid against non-Muslims that exists in countries such as Saudi Arabia — where there are roads they may not travel on, cities they may not enter and books they may not bring in; or Pakistan, where non-Muslims effectively receive no protection from the law-enforcement agencies.


Anti-Israel students at Ryerson University in Toronto jeer Jewish students who spoke out against a student council motion to support BDS.

In addition to York University students voting for BDS a year ago, the McMaster University student union in Hamilton voted in favor of a BDS resolution this past March.

After the vote, Raphael Szajnfarber, McMaster Hillel’s Director of Jewish Student Life, commented, “I can tell you it was a toxic environment in the room tonight. … “I know that some students did indeed feel targeted.”

Students at the University of Windsor have also supported BDS by a narrow vote. Apparent “discrepancies”, however, prompted an investigation by the university administration, and may yet see the vote thrown out.

The Ontario Public Interest Research Group [OPIRG], through its website “The ShakeUp,” accused Windsor University president Alan Wildeman of being undemocratic by threatening to have the referendum “quashed.” Before the referendum, Wildeman expressed in a letter the “well documented and detailed complaints” about the student referendum, and stated that “the University cannot allow student organizations to compromise the University’s commitment to provide a welcoming learning and living environment for each and every student on our campus.”

The ShakeUp report, however, blamed Wildeman for “a heavy-handed attack leveled directly at the Palestinian Solidarity Group,” and also launched a tirade not only against Wildeman, but also “the ignorant colonial mentality that tore apart First Nations in what is now Canada.”

All the while, however, the “The ShakeUp” report concealed the real goals of the Muslim Student Association and Palestinian Solidarity Group.

After the Windsor referendum, Member of Parliament Jeff Watson called the BDS movement “hateful and deceitful” and denounced “this new anti-Semitism poisoning our Canadian campuses.”

Howard English, the Toronto-area President of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs [CIJA], stated that such campus resolutions and boycotts are not really intended to promote peace and human rights but are “ultimately opposed to Israel’s existence as a state.”

Meanwhile, a Muslim woman, Mais Ali-Saleh, who grew up in an Arab village outside of Nazareth, Israel, was lauded in, “Guess Who’s Valedictorian at Israel’s Top Medical School?” On trips to Europe, Ali-Selah said that people are surprised to learn that in Israel, Israeli Arabs can study medicine and engineering. Ali-Saleh opposes BDS and the notion of Israel as an “apartheid state.” She said that movements such as BDS deny a fundamental truth: “Arabs,” she said, “and in particular Arab women, have more freedom, liberties and academic opportunities in Israel than in any Arab country.”

One well-known company targeted by BDS is SodaStream, where Israelis and Palestinians have been working together, embodying real “peace and human rights” for decades. It is also where, as referenced in the not particularly pro-Israel publication, Haaretz, “truth be told, the SodaStream workers and local Palestinians were downright peeved when asked about the efforts of solidarity activists and their own government to boycott SodaStream.”

The propaganda and lies of the BDS movement on our campuses, combined with Western naivety, is a potent brew that needs to be challenged by university administrations and at every level of society. Far too many are unaware that the Muslim Student Association’s pledge of allegiance is: “Allah is my Lord. Islam is my life. The Koran is my guide. The Sunna is my practice. Jihad is my Spirit. Righteousness is my character and paradise is my goal. I enjoin what is right. I forbid what is wrong. I will fight against oppression and I will die to establish Islam.” The MSA pledge of allegiance is virtually one and the same as the Muslim Brotherhood’s motto, which states: “Allah is our objective. The prophet is our leader. Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way. Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.”
