This is an extract called a “rant” by David Icke and in it he says that Zionism is a secret society, In it Icke uses the “House of Rothchilde” meme which is always used in such lies and lying
Note that Icke begins his rant by claiming that “The jewish people have been ercilessly used by the House of Rothchilde and the secret society called Zionism”
This is the technique that is always used. The trick that they use is to créate a separation between Jews and Zionism.
But Zionism has always existed as long as the Jewish people as a nation has existed. The history of the Jewish people has been the history of the Jewish people as a nation, or struggling to be a nation.
ANSWER OF 4INTERNATIONAL TO GALLOWAY
4international has one answer to Galloway and that is that Israel is completely a legitimate country for very many reasons which lie both in ancient history and in contemporary politics.
Galloway claims to be a Marxist but even here Galloway has to lie about Karl Marx who paid an important visit to Jerusalem as part of his work as a reporter for a newspaper.
Galloway says that Jews took over the area of Palestine from the Arabs. So therefore Israel is illegal.
But the answer to this is that Jews have lived in this area of the world for 3500 years as a nation. HG Wells is a major figure in English history and in English literature and he said that when Jews returned from the exile in Babylon that they were the finished article, being a complete nation, united behind a conscious history (their Bible). HG Wells knew that the Bible is not just religion but it is also a history of a people.
Jews have always lived in this part of the world. There is great proof of this in the report of Karl Marx written in 1853. What Marx found and wrote about most objectively is that in 1853 there was a majority of Jews in Jerusalem and that these Jews in Jerusalem in 1853 outnumbered Muslims by 2 to 1.
Note my dear Jewish friends and my dear progressive friends of all religions that statement by Karl Marx based on an actual visit to Jerusalem in 1853 is NOT the narrative of George Galloway today
That (majority of Jews in Jerusalem 1853) was not a sudden process. If Jews were that majority in 1853 then they were also a majority in 1800 and since these things move slowly also in say 1750
I trace my own ancestors in Ireland to 1770, that is an ancestor I can put a name (personality) to. Why does Galloway not dispute my right to live in Ireland!!!??? But he does with the Jews and with Israel their Homeland.
In doing so Galloway has to trample over history and in this case the history of the Karl Marx visit to Jerusalem.

This is an extract and here jared Israel the author is commenting on what Marx wrote. It is important because Jared makes the important point that long before the Zionist Congresses Jews were in Palestine and in the cities were there in large numbers. This is a most important answer to Galloway and shows how Galloway falsifies history, falsifies the story, and creates a new and false story. Galloway cannot proceed without that revision of history. But note, here he is revising Karl Marx. For us on the real and true left that is important to realise and internalise:
Notice that in 1853, 44 years before the first Zionist convention in Basel, Marx wrote that there were twice as many Jews as Moslems in Jerusalem.
According to Marx, the Jews were there because their passion for Jerusalem was so great it overcame their horror at how they were treated: “…the constant objects of Mussulman oppression and intolerance, insulted by the Greeks, persecuted by the Latins…”
EXTRACT FROM WHAT MARX WROTE
“[Quote from Marx starts here]
“The Mussulmans, forming about a fourth part of the whole, and consisting of Turks, Arabs and Moors, are, of course, the masters in every respect, as they are in no way affected with the weakness of their Government at Constantinople. Nothing equals the misery and suffering of the Jews at Jerusalem, inhabiting the most filthy quarter of the town, called hareth-el-yahoud, this quarter of dirt between Mount Zion and Mount Moriah, where their synagogues are situated – the constant objects of Mussulman oppression and intolerance, insulted by the Greeks, persecuted by the Latins and living only upon the scanty alms transmitted by their European brethren. The Jews, however, are not natives, but from distant and different countries, and are only attracted to Jerusalem by the desire of inhabiting the Valley of Jehosophat and to die in the very places where their Redemptor is to be expected.
‘Attending their death,’ says a French author, ‘they suffer and pray. Their regards turned to that mountain of Moriah, where once rose the temple of Solomon, and which they dare not approach, they shed tears on the misfortunes of Zion, and their dispersion over the world.’”
[Quote from Marx ends here]
NOTE GEORGE GALLOWAY THAT IS FROM THE SCIENTIFIC REPORT OF KARL MARX AND HIS 1853 VISIT to the historical city of the Jews Jerusalem
Truth in history is the best answer to these propaganda posts of Icke
