We on 4international salute the wonderful Jewish people and nation of Israel in the valiant struggle against “Palestinian” Fascism as is being conducted now by the amazing warriors of the IDF.

This is the very best reply to those antisemites who inhabit the ISM, the BBC and even on sites such as Harry’s Place.

The Jewish people we were always totally confident would emerge as the warriors that they are. But at this point and as revolutionary socialists, as Trotskyists, we say that the Jews of Israel in fighting against this deadly form of Fascism, which is “Palestinian” Jihadism, are at the very forefront of all progressive thought and action in this world.

This report from DEBKAfile is the very best report on the whole issue. It shows that in every step they take the Jews of Israel are confronting our common enemy. We salute totally these brave fighters of the IDF:

Amid continuing massive air strikes and wide speculation about whether or not Israeli ground forces will cross into the Gaza Strip, DEBKAfile‘s military sources report small groups of Israeli special forces were already carrying out swift hit-and-run raids Sunday, Dec. 28, on Day 2 of the Israeli Gaza operation.

As Israeli bombers, gunships and drones hovered overhead, picking up every move made by Hamas fighters and their missiles, Israeli stealth squads popped up at command posts, transport routes and missile squads, hit some and then faded away behind sand dunes. This tactic sowed confusion in Hamas ranks and gave them no chance to regroup and recover from the crushing air assault to their military infrastructure. The latest Palestinian death toll is estimated at 296.

This ground operation, which is likely to intensify Sunday overnight, has two objectives:

1. To mark key targets for air bombardment;

2. To blaze the way for a large-scale armored incursion still to come.

The most important mission carried out by the Israeli Air Force Sunday was the destruction of 40 smuggling tunnels, severing Hamas’ arms, fuel, ammunition and reinforcements lifeline from Iran and Syria via Egyptian Sinai. It raised the question of why this feat was not carried out during the three years since the tunnels began functioning.

Whereas Saturday, the Israeli bombers struck with missiles, Sunday, they dropped Guided Bomb Unit-28s (GBU-28) on the Philadelphi tunnels. This laser-guided, 5,000-pound conventional munition was developed for penetrating hardened Iraqi command centers located deep underground. It carries a 4,400-pound penetrating warhead.

Yes this is the way. Fight the Fascist enemy with bravery but also with huge cunning. Do not listen to the US and British Imperialists. They are totally irrelevant anyway. As regards the UN call on the American workers to kick this excrescence out of their wonderful and historical American continent. Forward to victory of the wonderful Jewish people!

Finally do not give any interviews. Never explain. Just act. We are behind you every inch of the way.
