Abbas is a Nazi and the whole business of recognising a Palestine State in the UN is Nazi business. There is only one antidote to this poison which is that Israel arrests Abbas and breaks up forever both the Fatah and the Hamas organizations…I mean totally
This is a most interesting and useful analysis of the position Israel finds itself at the hands of Abbas in the United Security Council. It says the following:
The U.N. Vote on Palestine Was a Rehearsal
And so it was, of course!
I saw this on the Israpundit website. Let me quote first of all the editor Ted Belman introduction to this John Bolton analysis:
Belman… Bolton rightfully argues that the US should reject out of hand any resolution that circumvents its policy of requiring direct negotiations to achieve an agreement. Although the Obama Administration keeps repeating the mantra of direct negotiations, it still violated the principle of a negotiated solutions by embracing in advance of such negotiations, borders which are based on ’67 lines plus swaps. To do so limits the scope of negotiations.
Here is where I start to disagree (as a Trotskyist) with Belman and Bolton. Stay with me on this because I think it is important.
Trotskyism is a very bad name for all Jews that I know of. They listen to me quietly and sullenly. If I am right they say nothing at all. Just get ready to stick the knife in later when they can. Ah well!
This is my take on what Belman says above:
I do not think that “Bolton rightfully argues” at all at all in this analysis for very fundamental reasons. Why should Israel be dependent on anything at all that the US does? Note I did not say what Obama does. I mean the US. Israel is an independent country and it must not allow itself to be placed in this situation for a single moment.
But it is and that is the crucial thing now in every day in the lives of every Israeli.
Belman follows this American ruling classes creep Bolton. He was the guy all over the place calling for the invasion of Iraq and the destruction of Saddam in 2003. Bolton has never for a second changed his position on this game changer.
That remains the key issue for Jews. That issue which is hardly ever discussed is the key issue to discuss.
It was the overthrow of Saddam by Bush and Blair, supported totally by so many Jews like Belman, that is the defining issue.
It was the toppling off Saddam and the destruction of the Baathists (no matter how Antisemitic they were and all Arabs are Antisemitic) that opened the door to the Jihad in all its forms.
That action that Bolton was behind was followed by the Arab Spring which is actually a “Nightmare” for Jews.
To be kind to him Belman cannot see past his nose. Belman hates Trotskyism. So let us debate, really debate and I am ready against all comers on these issues.
So what then as an alternative to that do I propose? I am a Trotskyist and a socialist revolutionary.
I propose that there is only one answer. That is for the Israeli Government to arrest and break up all of the Fatah leadership/movement and of course to do the same with the Hamas movement.
That is the answer. That is the only answer.
In order for that to happen there must be a Government in Israel that is elected to do just that.
A Government which is headed by either Netanyahu or Bennett, or by Netanyahu in coalition with Bennett, or in coalition with Labour, or in coalition with Labour and Livni, or any one of a hundred concoctions, will never do that.
Do you see my point?
This Trotskyist based on the tradition of Trotskyism which Robert Wistrich is so hateful in his writings towards is coming up with this policy, and as far as I can see I am quite alone in putting this forward although I intend in future articles to go into some of the articles of both Sherman and Gil White to prove my point.
Belman is saying as is Bolton that the future of Israel is tied to the US Government. If so then Israelis finished. Israel must not for a second depend on the US Governemnt for anything.
An influx of new Security Council members means a likely ‘yes’ vote—and a veto dilemma for Obama.
By JOHN BOLTON, Wall Street Journal
Jan. 2, 2015
Long-standing Palestinian efforts to use the United Nations to achieve internationally recognized statehood status nearly succeeded early Wednesday. Just after midnight, the Security Council narrowly rejected a Jordanian draft resolution fixing a one-year deadline for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, requiring Israeli withdrawal to pre-1967 lines, and declaring Jerusalem the capital of “Palestine.”
Because the U.N. Charter requires nine affirmative votes from among the Security Council’s 15 members (assuming no vetoes) to pass a resolution, Jordan’s proposal failed—by one vote. There were eight in favor, two against, and five abstentions. Nonetheless, a pro-Palestinian, U.N. Charter-compliant majority may soon exist.
And absent more-effective U.S. diplomacy, the Obama administration could soon face making a choice that it would dearly like to avoid: whether to veto a biased, anti-Israel resolution. The Palestinian Authority has already significantly upped the ante by moving, later on Wednesday, to join the treaty creating the International Criminal Court.
A firmer U.S. strategy might have prevented the dilemma from arising. The White House’s opening diplomatic error was in sending strong signals to the media and U.S. allies that Mr. Obama, wary of offending Arab countries, was reluctant to veto any resolution favoring a Palestinian State. Secretary of State John Kerry took pains not to offer a view of the resolution before it was taken up. Such equivocation was a mistake because even this administration asserts that a permanent resolution of the Israeli-Arab conflict requires direct negotiations and agreements among the parties themselves.
No draft resolution contrary to these precepts should be acceptable to the U.S or worth wasting time on in the diplomatic pursuit of a more moderate version. This American view, advocated for years and backed by resolute threats to veto anything that contradicted it, has previously dissuaded the Palestinians from blue-smoke-and-mirror projects in the Security Council.
It is precisely the Obama administration’s audible heart palpitations about negative Arab reactions to a possible U.S. veto that encouraged the Palestinian Authority and its supporters to plunge ahead. Mr. Obama neither prevented the resolution from going forward nor prevailed decisively enough to discourage the Palestinians from trying again within months or even weeks.
Several factors support a swift Palestinian reprise. First, they obtained a majority of the Security Council’s votes, even if not the required supermajority of nine. In today’s U.N., the eight affirmative votes constitute a moral victory that virtually demand vindication, and sooner rather than later.
Second, the text of Jordan’s resolution was wildly unbalanced even by U.N. standards—for example, it demands a solution that, “brings an end to the Israeli occupation since 1967,” and calls for “security arrangements, including through a third-party presence, that guarantee and respect the sovereignty of a State of Palestine.” A few meaningless tweaks here and there, and several countries that abstained could switch to “yes.” Third, on Jan. 1 five of the Security Council’s 10 nonpermanent members stepped down (their two-year terms ended), replaced by five new members more likely to support the Palestinian effort.
Consider how Wednesday’s vote broke down, and what the future may hold. Three of the Security Council’s five permanent members (France, China and Russia) supported Jordan’s draft. France’s stance is particularly irksome, since it provides cover for other Europeans to vote “yes.” The U.K. timidly abstained, proving that David Cameron is no Margaret Thatcher ; the abstention signals that a more “moderately” worded resolution might be enough to flip London to a “yes.”
Washington cast the only permanent member’s “no” vote, which is characterized as a veto only when nine or more Security Council members vote in a draft resolution’s favor. Will President Obama now have the stomach to cast a real veto against a U.N. Charter majority backing the Palestinians? Is this the point where the “liberated” Mr. Obama allows a harsh anti-Israel resolution to pass? Happy New Year, Jerusalem.
Among the nonpermanent members, the prospects are grim. Three “yes” votes came from Jordan, Chad and Chile, which all remain Security Council members in 2015. Two additional supporters, Argentina and Luxembourg, have been replaced, respectively, by Venezuela (no suspense there) and Spain. Spain narrowly won election in October, defeating Turkey after three ballots. Madrid might be expected to support Washington, but not necessarily, given recent EU hostility to Israel and the appeasers’ argument to soothe wounded Muslim feelings about Turkey’s loss by backing the Palestinians.
Only Australia joined the U.S. in voting “no.” Its successor, New Zealand, would either have abstained or voted affirmatively, according to Foreign Minister Murray McCully.
South Korea abstained, but its replacement, Malaysia, is a certain affirmative vote. Angola, taking Rwanda’s seat, is an abstention at best. While abstainers Lithuania and Nigeria remain, Nigeria’s Boko Haram problem could easily move it to “yes” as an olive branch to the Muslim world. And Lithuania, as a new member of the euro currency union, could well succumb to arguments for EU solidarity, especially if Britain also surrenders.
Finding nine affirmative votes, and likely even more, looks decidedly easy. The Obama administration can only prevent what it dreads by openly embracing a veto strategy, hoping thereby to dissuade pro-Palestinian states from directly confronting the U.S.
And if that fails, the veto should be cast firmly and resolutely, as we normally advocate our principles, not apologetically. As so often before on Middle Eastern issues, a veto would neither surprise nor offend most Arab governments. If the administration had courage enough to make clear that a veto was inevitable, it would minimize whatever collateral damage might ensue in Arab lands. But don’t hold your breath.

We Trotskyists of 4international. Very supportive of Israel. Insist that Fatah and Hamas have roots in the Antisemitism of Hitler and Hajj Amin el Husseini. Husseini a founder of the Musmim Brotherhood. Roots of “Palestinianism” lie in the Holocaust of the Jews. The Holocaust was the coming together of the Islam of the Koran and Fascism. A frightening mix which is being threatened today again on many fronts. We wish to explore those fronts…please help our work…
Peace Partner? Abbas’s Fatah Demands More Car Terror Attacks
By Ari Yashar
Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah movement, still held up as a “moderate” counterbalance to Hamas by many in the world, is actively calling for car terrorist attacks after a recent spate of three such attacks in the last two weeks.
The flurry of Fatah Facebook activity urging more attacks ramming cars into Jews was exposed and translated by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).
After a Hamas terrorist murdered a Border Patrol officer and wounded many others with his car in Jerusalem on Wednesday, and later another Arab driver ran into three soldiers, Fatah on Thursday posted numerous cartoons and images to its page calling for more such attacks.
One cartoon was titled “the run over organization,” using a play of words on the Arabic da’es meaning “run over” and Da’esh, the Arabic acronym for Islamic State (ISIS). In the cartoon, Fatah urges “hit the gas at 199 (kmh, 125 mph – ed.) for Al-Aqsa.”
A crossed-over traffic sign reads “Al-Aqsa,” hinting at the ban on Jewish entry to the Temple Mount by the Jordanian Waqf (Islamic trust) that is in de facto control of the holiest site in Judaism.
Another Fatah post on Thursday reads simply “run over, friend, run over the foreign settler!”
Indeed numerous terrorist websites, including that of Hamas, have been touting a “car intifada” in the wake of the Wednesday attacks.
In yet another post from Wednesday, a picture of former PA Chairman Yasser Arafat shouting was subtitled “the Jews are defiling Al-Aqsa – will you not rage?”
PMW has documented how Abbas last month, just weeks before the recent series of lethal attacks, called to prevent Jews “defiling” the Temple Mount by “all means necessary,” in an uncanny echo of Arafat’s call for the 2000 Second Intifada. Abbas’s call for terror was given heavy rotation on official PA TV.
Another post on Fatah’s official Facebook page Thursday showed a man shooting an assault rifle on the ground with the words “restore your glory.”
The incessant urging of terror was not only found on Fatah’s main Facebook page; “The National Liberation Movement – Fatah” page also got into the terror action on Thursday, showing a cartoon of a car with Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) flag colors trying to ram three fleeing Jews.
The text under the cartoon reads “#Da’es (“run over” – ed.) – a new hashtag.”
“May Allah protect the heroes,” the same page wrote in another post Thursday, praising an alleged stabbing that was reported in the frequently fictitious Arab media.
“Reports of a stabbing of a Zionist security guard and taking of his weapon in North Jerusalem. May Allah protect the heroes. #Palestine_resists,” the page bragged.
The same Fatah page also on Thursday posted a short video of Arab riots on the Temple Mount, writing “and they ask why we run them over!” The convoluted logic appears to be justifying the terror attacks in recent weeks with the Arab violence on the holiest site in Judaism.
Hanin Zoabi has been elected into the Israeli Parliament Knesset. This makes her therefore a member of Knesset (MK). Zoabi belongs to a party called Balad
Balad is a political party, whose stated purpose is the ‘struggle to transform the state of Israel into a democracy for all its citizens, irrespective of national or ethnic identity.' It opposes the idea of Israel as a solely Jewish state, and supports its recasting as a binational state.
Balad also advocates that the state of Israel recognize Palestinian Arabs as a national minority, entitled to all rights that come with that status including autonomy in education, culture and media. Since the party’s formation, it has objected to every proposed state budget on the grounds that they have discriminated against the Arab population.
The party supports creation of two states based on pre-1967 borders, with the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem to constitute a Palestinian state and the implementation of UN Resolution 194 regarding the right of return to Palestinian refugees.
Balad describes itself as a ‘democratic progressive national party for the Palestinian citizens of Israel (Wikipedia)
Haneen Zoabi, a Balad Knesset member, said in March 2009 that she was not worried about the prospect of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. Instead she suggested that a nuclear-armed Iran would act as a counter-power to Israel. Zoabi also welcomed Iran’s growing influence on Palestinian affairs, saying that Iran has played a more beneficial role in region than Jordan and Egypt because it stood more firmly “against occupation than a lot of the Arab countries”. Balad’s chairman, Jamal Zahalka, said that Zoabi’s comments represented an “analysis,” not a “position,” and did not constitute “supporting a nuclear weapon in Iran.” (Wikipedia)
THE THING ABOUT ZOABI
The idea of Israel according to Balfour (1917) was that the Jews would have a Homeland of their own. There was no wording, no terminology as today, no national concept among Arabs known in 1917 as the “Palestinians”.
LEON TROTSKY IN THE 1930S
This is dealt with in the famous biography by Joseph Nedava. Trotsky did not think that Jews would ever be safe inside a capitalist world because like us on 4international Trotsky identified capitalism in crisis as the source of this very dangerous form of capitalist rule-Fascism.
But he was no dogmatist. Recognising in those all too real times the great danger to Jews from Hitler Trotsky in effect (despite Nedava’s confusion on some aspects of the issue) not in words but in deeds stated himself as a Zionist, a Zionist based on science not religion. This is what Nedava wrote quite recently:
“The one thing one cannot say of Trotsky, as Mr. Carmichael does, is that whatever he wrote of Jewishness was “banal and predictable.” In 1938 Trotsky predicted the Holocaust and expressed his fear of the physical annihilation of seven million Jews in Europe. A year earlier he admitted the need for a “territorial” solution to the Jewish problem. These are far-reaching views. To be sure, in subscribing indirectly to the Zionist solution, it did not follow that Trotsky himself would have become a pilgrim to Zion: Zionism dawned on him too late in the day for that, but I am convinced that had Stalin spared him another eight years of life to witness the establishment of the State of Israel, Trotsky would have sanctioned this historic fact, even if only as a “temporary” solution to the Jewish problem until the Communist “millennium” was finally ushered in. In this respect, Mrs. Beba Idelson’s interview with Trotsky in 1937, which I cite in my book, is very illuminating.”
This brings us back to Zoabi and the situation that Israel finds itself in today. Trotsky was very clear on the reason for founding the Israeli state. One aspect which he had to stress in 1937 and indeed did stress was that the Jews needed a state for basic self-defence.
In this regard the Jews in the 1930s and in 1941 found that there was no country in the world, no capitalist nation whatsoever, including America and Britain, that was prepared to open its doors to the Jews in such danger from Hitler.
No help! That is the hard lesson of history! This was accentuated when Polish Underground members escaped, travelled to London, met the American and British representatives and asked in vain for the British and especially American planes (who were already overflying the camps) to bomb the ovens and the railway lines (Claude Lanzmann, Shoah)
One further aspect of the Holocaust must be noted. The Arabs were fully represented by Hajj Amin el Husseini. This Arab from Palestine area was a fully fledged Nazi and played a most central role in the Holocaust. There is THE MOST DIRECT line from that Nazi and Zoabi today.
The lesson…The state of Israel is first and foremost a defence against Antisemitism.
If the state of Israel is according to what Trotsky put forward a defence against Antisemitism then this is precisely what the Jewish leaders since 1948 have failed to do.
Continually the Arabs in the Middle East have been waging Jihad against the Jews and therefore against Israel. The leaders of Israel historically from Ben Gurion on into the present leaders like Netanyahu have let the Jews down very badly indeed by not defending the Jews against Israel.
4international is going to be placing emphasis on the size of this area. The whole of the area is less than the size of Munster, which is one of 4 roughly equal provinces in Ireland.
As Mark Langfan emphasises with his maps this is an area which the enemies of the Jews cannot be allowed to have any foothold whatsoever. THE AREA FOR ONE THING IS JUST TOO SMALL.
4international has long held that Jews because of world Antisemitism must live alone and that any others inside the Jewish state must be there only as guests.
There must not be any ability of any enemy of the Jews to wage war, verbal or lethal (as in kidnapping)
This is what separates us Trotskyists on 4international from so many in the world today. Disagree if you want but if you in word or deed allow any to wage any warfare on the Jews today you are indeed ANTISEMITIC.
IN PRACTICE THIS MEANS
There is therefore great urgency to have a leadership in Israel that will expel from Israel Zoabi and it is as simple as that. Until 4international sees that happening then we have no confidence in anything Netanyahu says or even does. It is all camouflage for more betrayal
(from Israel National News)
By Hezki Ezra and Elad Benari
The Balad party, of which MK Hanin Zoabi is a member, dismissed on Tuesday evening the criticism that was leveled at Zoabi after she justified the kidnapping of three yeshiva students by Hamas.
In a statement, the party also blamed the “Israeli occupation” for recent violence.
“The mad cries of revenge by Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, the Jewish Home, MK Miri Regev and others, are proof of the Israeli political system, which does not want to hear a different voice that is not aligned with the nationalist consensus, which sanctifies aggression, occupation and settlements,” said the party.
“Balad and MK Hanin Zoabi see the Israeli government as responsible for the continuing violence and bloodshed. The occupation is the source of violence, and the way to prevent violence is to end the occupation and to take a path of serious dialogue on the basis of UN resolutions,” Balad’s statement read.
“Balad and MK Hanin Zoabi support the just struggle against the occupation,” the party continued, adding, “International law explicitly states that people which are under occupation have the right to struggle against the occupation. We emphasize our opposition to hurting innocent people, and the duty to conduct the struggle within the framework of reason and morality.”
The party statement added, “Balad and MK Hanin Zoabi hope that the issue of the abduction ends peacefully, and the way to do so is through dialogue and sending a message of willingness to release prisoners on hunger strike from administrative detention without trial. We condemn the re-conquest of the Hevron area and the arbitrary arrests.”
Zoabi’s comments on the kidnapping came in a radio interview, in which she stated that the “kidnappers are not terrorists” and that the kidnapping is a “last resort” for Palestinian Arabs frustrated by their lives.
“They are not terrorists, I do not agree with you!” Zoabi fired. “They have seen no other way to change their reality and they have to resort to these measures until Israel sobers up a bit and feels the suffering of others.”
Following the comments, Culture Minister Limor Livnat (Likud) announced that she intends to turn to the Attorney General demanding an investigation into Zoabi’s comments and whether they can be classified as an offense under Section 144 of the Penal Code against “incitement to violence of terror.”
Liberman slammed Zoabi in a Facebook post, writing, “Not only are the kidnappers terrorists; Hanin Zoabi is a terrorist.”
He called for harsh judgement to be meted upon the MK. “The fate of the kidnappers and the fate of Zoabi, an inciter, should be the same.”
“Expel her to Gaza and remove her diplomatic immunity,” MK Miri Regev (Likud) stated Tuesday. “This is a betrayal. She identified herself with terrorists on the Mavi Marmara and now she identifies herself with the Hamas terrorists who kidnapped our three boys.”
Tourism Minister Uzi Landau (Likud Beytenu) condemned the comments as well, telling Arutz Sheva that Zoabi “is an ambassador of terrorism in the Israeli Knesset.”
Readers of 4international should visit the article on mahmoud Abbas in Wikipedia in order to understand that Abbas is in fact a deep Antisemite and comes out of the same Antisemitism as the Nazis. Read especially about his thesis that those jews trying to recue Jews were Nazis!!!!
Danon the Israeli Minister particularly took issue with Abbas’s claim in the speech that a unity government with Hamas is not a terrorist government.
“Abbas is on his way to becoming a professor of terrorism,” said Danon, adding, “After denying the Holocaust in his doctoral thesis, he now claims that Hamas is not a terrorist organization.”
The PA Chairman, added Danon, “Seems to have forgotten that after the elections in Gaza, Hamas threw members of Fatah off the roofs of buildings. He forgot for that the Hamas’s stated goal is to destroy Israel, he forgot that the entire world defines Hamas as a terrorist organization.”
Thus we are dealing with Abbas who is a slippery anti-Semite
The Palwatch.org has this on that thesis which reads:
Mahmoud Abbas’s thesis: Zionists were Nazi allies
The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism, by Mahmoud Abbas – Feb. 15, 1984
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s thesis, “The Other Side: The Secret Relations between Nazism and the Leadership of the Zionist Movement” (Translation by Wiesenthal Center):
“A partnership was established between Hitler’s Nazis and the leadership of the Zionist movement… [the Zionists] gave permission to every racist in the world, led by Hitler and the Nazis, to treat Jews as they wish, so long as it guarantees immigration to Palestine.”
It would be hard to spin a bigger lie. This is the mark of Antisemitism to judge Zionist activists in this lying manner. It is a big lie because these activists were operating in a situation where the Nazi Party had the power of the state in their very hands. That is the biggest Antisemites in the world had the state power and Zionist activists were operating inside that context.
So Zionist activists had to travel into Germany of the 1930s and in some way try to deal with the Nazis in order to extract whatever Jews they could from the death camps.
That is the method of the Antisemite, to extract it out of that historical situation.
Leon Trotsky who was without any doubt a great political friend of the Jewish people, and he was a Jew, warned of the great significance of the Nazis taking power in the spring of 1933. There is always a time when history is compressed into maybe just days and even minutes. The moment in 1933m that day, when Hitler was handed power in German was the key moment.
Leon Trotsky understood better than any other human being what that meant in general, and what it meant for the Jewish people in Europe.
By one way or another Trotsky (who himself was being hounded by Stalinism and Imperialism) advocated Jews getting out.
Trotsky thus would totally and unreservedly support those activists trying to extract Jews under NEAR IMPOSSIBLE CONDITIONS.
You can see where Abbas fits in with all of this. These activists were trying to rescue Jews. They were up against especially the Arab Palestinian Hajj Amin el Husseini who was in Berlin and who was exercising great power, and who was wanting the Nazis to speed up the killing in the death camps.
ABBAS FITS IN PRECISELY THERE.
This throws the spotlight on The Oslo Syndrome, those Jewish leaders who have been selling Abbas, just like Bush and the Canadians, as a man of peace.
Abbas just as much as Hamas is out of the Nazi Holocaust.
Fascists like this cut and trim, and so it is no surprise that Abbas is now referring to the Holocaust as a crime, and that is designed simply for the US public man and woman.
Just remember Hitler too was not a stupid man but quite a clever man tactically speaking.
E very minute and every hour of every day that has went by since this PA decision to join Hamas is a betrayal by Netanyahu, yes and by Danon too.
Words are totally useless in these actual situations. There comes a time to ACT.
One Action is worth in these minutes millions of words. Words are a distraction in fact.
Israel needs to ACT and the number of words needed to explain that ACTION can be reduced down to perhaps ten words no more. Vladimir Lenin said in a critical month of world history, Bread Land Peace and meant those 3 words.
Now action followed by such as “Arrest Abbas Arrest Hamas, Occupy their ground they stand on” just as that was the words and actions of Brian Boru against the Danes in Ireland 1014…there always comes a moment for action because ever since the time of our forerunner Practice is Primary, thought follows practice, do not led the academics who have a stake in misleading us confuse us on that.
The situation is totally critical. By being besotted by words the Israeli ruling elites, and I really include all of the bloggers in this as well, are running the danger of defeating the Jews comprehensively. These day and weeks and maybe a few months are critical, BUT THERE IS NOT UNLIMITED TIME
Consequently despite the most difficult personal circumstances I want to be part of a conference which must initially be somewhat on line, but no less physical. A conference of emergency action and I will be writing to various people to ask their advice on this score, mostly people I have disagreed with but still as people I see as being in the same trench
A person I knew called Dan Bielek once talked about Israel, paralysis and Stockholm’s Syndrome. The Oslo Syndrome by Levin is also relevant.
I do not think that these leaders can snap out of it. There needs to be a new leadership. To have a new leadership there must be a discussion and the discussion must be brought to the Jewish youth of Israel, because not totally but in general only youth can actually forge or adopt a new way of living or working politically. But at least the discussion… the best will of whatever age respond…
Israeli leaders are paralysed over Abbas joining with Nazis in Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
These are issues that show the extreme crisis of Israeli and Jewish leaders. As is well known and even reported today by Ted Belman of Israpundit they sat down, Bennett on one hand, the Livni capitulationist branch on the other and Netanyahu hovering in the middle and decided…to do nothing at all because to say they withdrew from the talks…well there were no talks. (!!!)
Caroline Glick also has got it when she remarks that you have to admire the utter arrogance of Abbas, applying to all these UN bodies and to the Hague Court etc. while joining hands with the No 1 war criminals in the world, Hamas and Islamic Jihad. So Jews like Glick, and a thousand other bloggers and genuinely concerned wannabe Jewish leaders know that they are about to be screwed good and proper, and that they have no leadership at all to meet the crisis (which is in essence a crisis of leadership) but I am dammed if they ever speak about leadership or think of building an alternative party. Oh do not worry though Francisco Gil White has been given a special welcome tour of Judea and Samaria by Women in Green so in about 3 years time we can expect another article from the Professor. Well I’ll be dammed! Is the present Jewish movement carried along on a wave of hot air, pious talk and fatalism?
Yet it seems so obviously clear. Abbas the great “peace” man has joined the Nazis of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, surely a time for ACTION
This action must necessarily mean as great urgency the arrest of PA leaders and the placing of Abbas on trial, the arrest of Islamic Jihad and Hamas leaders, the offer of money to leave to Arab Palestinian families and a new life elsewhere where they can be able to break from Islam and Antisemitism which is hardwired into Islam, the break from US Imperialism and the banning from Israel of evil politicians like Kerry, the creation of alliance with Antifascists as in Ukraine where Jews and Israel MUST support Putin against US and NATO Imperialism. In all of these things Gil White, Belman, Glick, they are all diversions because they do not DO anything along this road, really the road to revolutionary socialism (because the root cause is capitalism moving into Fascism) where the Jewish religion can be defended and protected for the first time in 4000 years actually!
Yesterday I claimed that in the face of Abbas Hamas pact that the Israeli leaders, all of them, were paralysed. How sadly true that was. Interviewed by BBC Antisemites Netanyahu was on the defensive. Netanyahu used the word “peace” 20 times. But unfortunately it is war.
Netanyahu is a creature of US Imperialism and if Jews are not careful the whole of the Israeli struggle for a Homeland is going down the same road. It is a life and death struggle now to create a new leadership which can break from the past. In this real and material world who cares about acceptance by capitalist nation states all of which are being driven (like Spain) towards Fascist rule once again. Who cares, really?
Yet Netanyahu will NOT fight the Americans. The US said at first (yesterday) that Abbas joining Hamas was not a nice thing to do, but this morning 24 hours later America was calling for a “compromise” to be reached. Who has to compromiso? The Jews. That is the same as asking Jews as they were marched into the Nazi concentration camp to compromiso!!! Hamas and Abbas ARE the Nazis in modern form.
The Islam enemy of the Jews now Abbas and Hamas has called war and America calls compromise. America wants Jews to compromise, as in 1939 at the gates of Auschwitz
But America that is Kerry were not seeking compromise this morning when they were declaring war on Russia over Ukraine. When will this hypocrisy ever be ended.
On all of these issues Israeli and Jewish leadership is bankrupt. They can DO nothing and will do nothing. Jewish leadership is a total danger to the Jewish people on all of its fronts.
Here I kid you not. Just yesterday the Jewish so called blog called Israpundit gang of violent Fascists were focussed (at this time) on driving off Israpundit a Christian man who this gang of fascists had labelled an Antisemite. This particular Christian has the same policy more or less as Martin Sherman in that he calls for Arabs to be induced to leave with lump sum payment. So he is an asset to the Jews. But the gang of Israpundit were driving him off AND OTHERS with repeated slurs of him being an Antisemite.
It is just an expression of the crisis, no more tan that. Groups and individuals that have sprung up around the Jewish movement have to be questioned on every single issue of programme and policy. But when they start throwing the label “Antisemite” around that is a real danger sign.
The situation needs urgently a revolutionary socialist Trotskyist Party. This will go back into the 1930s and to the analysis which Leon Trotsky was making against Stalinism and against Fascism. How to defeat Imperialism? How to stop Fascism? How to save Jews from Antisemitism? The fight against Stalinism and the legacy of Stalinism! The fight for principle! Opposition to isolationism and the struggle for a principled Trotskyist Party in these conditions of world capitalist crisis.
First of all American diplomats like Kerry must be banned from entering Israel.
The forces of this Fascist movement which we can label as “Palestinianism” must be smashed. This means the immediate arrest of the PA leadership and as el Sisi did with Morsi Abbas must be placed on trial for his crimes. Join forces with el Sisi to smash hamas totally, and executing all its leaders all of whom have murdered Jews. But take possession of both gaza and Sinai.
The politics of Caroline Glick must be opposed down the line—I would say on everything and here I disagree with Martin Sherman…I say oppose her on everything! There can be no living at all with Arabs in the Jewish homeland and rather than that Jews have to protect themselves from this form of Antisemitsm. Glick proposes to make them citizens…what a horror show that is and what a horror show is Glick!
Israel has to be far less reliant on these international capitalist governments. Israel is far too intent on business. Fight for principle. Israel must now urgently create an Alliance with those Russians in Ukraine who are fighting Fascism and fighting NATO. Israel must state that the Kiev regime must be overthrown and as an immediate action Russia must move into East Ukraine with all its force to stop these murders of antifascist fighters as happened yesterday…five murdered by the Fascists. But Israeli leaders say not a Word…a horror show for Jews. People are fighting Fascism and Jews are silent as the grave!
And so on. Name any issue and Israeli leaders are totally useless and worse downright dangerous for Jews.
Above all créate a party which will fight in concrete form for principle. This is 4international and we do have a definite programme of theory and action which is rooted inside the great history of Trotskyism. So far it is a free world. join us if you have the courage to act rather tan talk…Felix Quigley
