Leon Trotsky had alone in the world predicted exactly this, the Holocaust, in 1938 in a clear defence of the Jewish people…historical fact! The situation today has got definite similarities…
(Sinister examples (two) of Arab propaganda on an Irish website)
…That is right, justify killing those babies with drones and attack helicopers. Hamas are horrible but so is the IDF’s Ethnic clensing. Try not to be so one eyed.
Israel and Hamas – is there that much of a difference.
…Look at what Israel did to the Black Jews, Apartheid South Africa didn’t even try that.
It is a crazy pariah state.
The crazy spelling is in the original. The names used are fictional anyway.
I do not totally blame them. Certainly I do not get emotionally involved. They are following a narrative, a story that they have been told. It was expertly told as many lies can be or there would be no successful conmen in our world, but as we have ALL found out there are. It is the “Palestinian Narrative”!
All Jewish people must be quite aware that this kind of propagandist Antisemitism is going on all the time. What though to do about it?
Most will shrug their shoulders and see it as beneath them to give it a second glance or in other words accept (be complicit in a way) in it.
This goes on essentially because Israel has never created a true Hasbara (which means telling the truth about your history)
Without going into why Israel has never created a true Hasbara (emphasis on “true”) let us go on to place it at the forefront of our Trotskyist calls today on Israel.
Though not a Trotskyist (well he has never said!) Martin Sherman has made the same call for years. Others too.
In the present situation Israel should do only a number of limited things but do them decisively. In future articles we Trotskyists will elaborate on some ideas which we will seek to have discussed (not just among Jewish people either).
But today (one thing at a time) it is Hasbara.
In today’s world that means electronic. There must be a website that all people who want to know will go to and which is very significant in today’s world. I hate to use the example of RT but…
It will hit everything that is happening in the world and the Jews will take a position and that position will be known by all. It may be wrong at times but it will be a P O S I T I O N!!!
Striking while the iron is hot, and hitting all the news events in the world. Here however is the trick! Along with that there is an historical section, amd there is no disconnect between the two.
In other words the two (historical nd contemporary politics) are brought to the fore
No more of Sharon opposing Bush (on the 2003 Iraq invasion and deposing of Saddam) but sadly doing it behind closed doors.
Sharon was sitting on a gold mine and he did not realise it! He had completely the correct position on the Invasión by Bush and his NeoCons. It involved defending Saddam because Saddam was a bulwark against the Iranian Fascists who are now FAR WORSE!
But nobody knew! And to this day nobody knows!!!
Is Israel up to that? I am certain that it is. The reason I am so sure is because as an Irish person and a Trotskyist (or Marxist) I have a very good understanding of the broad outlines of the history of this nation called the Jews.
It is the same certainty that Leon Trotsky had in 1938 when he predicted in very clear terms that the Holocaust was on its way, and that by that late stage it was unavoidable.
A lot depends on this. I place the present situation in the same category (of very late in the day) as Trotsky did in 1938. There will be more articles where we will explain more
