THE WSWS ANTI-TROTSKYIST GROUP APOLOGISES FOR BOKO HARAM

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

The anti-Marxist and anti-Trotskyist “leftist” group of wsws.org 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.

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2014/05/08/nige-m08.html

 

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 NEW GENERATION OF SOCIALISTS MUST LEARN THAT ISLAM IS AN IDEOLOGY OF WAR NOT PEACE

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.

THESE UKRAINIAN FASCISTS SEEM TO DELIGHT IN KILLING…REMINDS ME 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 (https://www.facebook.com/r232945)
 
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

JEWS TODAY DO NOT HAVE ONE CLUE AS TO WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR WORLD

THE IGNORANCE OF CONTEMPORARY JEWS WILL LEAD TO THEIR DESTRUCTION THROUGH A NEW HOLOCAUST OF THE JEWS

 

THE US FASCISTS USE ACCIDENTS OF EVENTS SUCH AS THE NIGERIAN KIDNAPPINGS

 

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.”

NO SOLUTION TO IRAN DANGER EXCEPT ACTION BY ISRAEL

IT CALLS FOR ACTION

 

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 debka.com quandary except action

 

 

(start debka.com 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

ISRAEL LEADERS LIKE PERES HAVE BEEN WALLOWING NAKED IN THE WINTER SNOW

 

 

PHYSICALLY IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DEFEND ISRAEL FROM A JIHADIST STATE WITHIN A STONES THROW DISTANCE

 

POLITICALLY AND THEORETICALLY AS AFRICA IS SHOWING THERE IS SIMPLY NO LIVING AT ALL WITH THE JIHAD

 

IT IS NECESSARY NOW TO POSIT THE PLIGHT OF ISRAEL AND THE JEWS INSIDE THIS OVERALL WORLD JIHAD AND WORLD CAPITALIST CRISIS

 

 

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

 

(START QUOTE FROM TROTSKY HERE9

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.

http://www.marxists.org/archive/trotsky/1939/04/stream.htm

 

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.

 

 

(START MARTIN SHERMAN ANALYSIS HERE)

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.

EVEN ANGELINA JOLIE MOVES IN ON NIGERIAN GIRLS ISSUE

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.
