This is the historical day of the commemoration of Kristallnacht. It is truly historical. After 75 years we have reached this day (and night)

This was a terrible day for Jewish people, the start of the Holocaust.



Trotsky predicted clearly this event, this Holocaust. And in his writings especially against Fascism he provided a way forward and he provided the way that the Holocaust could be avoided.




4international is commemorating the Kristallnacht because we are rooted in the present and we are determined that through correct leadership a Holocaust of the Jews will not be repeated.




 4international has thus in that spirit been hosting a series of articles, one on every day of this week. Today it is 75 years since that horrible day when the Nazis turned on the Jews of Germany, burned their synagogues, murdered and imprisoned in the camps. This led to the gassing of the Jews in the Holocaust.


The following is a short paragraph from Wikipedia on Kristallnacht:


“At least 91 Jews were killed in the attacks, and 30,000 were arrested and incarcerated in concentration camps.[2] Jewish homes, hospitals, and schools were ransacked, as the attackers demolished buildings with sledgehammers.[3] Over 1,000 synagogues were burned (95 in Vienna alone) and over 7,000 Jewish businesses destroyed or damaged.[4][5] Martin Gilbert writes that no event in the history of German Jews between 1933 and 1945 was so widely reported as it was happening, and the accounts from the foreign journalists working in Germany sent shock waves around the world.[3] The Times wrote at the time: “No foreign propagandist bent upon blackening Germany before the world could outdo the tale of burnings and beatings, of blackguardly assaults on defenceless and innocent people, which disgraced that country yesterday.”[6]

The reality of the Holocaust for 4international is that Hitler could have been stopped in 1933. The German working class had many millions organised in trade unions, but the Stalinist Comintern, the Social Democratic leaders, and the trade union leaders basically betrayed their workers. The first to be arrested by Hitler in 1933 were not actually Jews but those very leaders of the trade unions who had refused to fight. Fascism shows no mercy. THEN followed the Jews. We INSIST on seeing it in that way, in that order. is a true Trotskyist organization. Our organization abhors dogma. We are not religionists.


When we see something in front of our eyes we believe it. We trust in our senses just as much as our hominid ancestors believed their eyes and indeed all 5 senses.


We do not believe in or ever see the need for a sixth sense.


We see in front of us today a World Antisemitism that is the equal of the Antisemitism of the Nazis…WITH THIS EXCEPTION…Like Goldhagen we see it as worse because it is more global.

The Devil That Never Dies: The Rise and Threat of Global Antisemitism by Daniel Jonah Goldhagen  (Sep 3, 2013)

Expulsion of the Jews from Frankfurt on August...

Expulsion of the Jews from Frankfurt on August 23, 1614, after riots in the “Jews Street” led by Vincent Fettmilch. According to the text, “1380 persons old and young were counted at the exit of the gate” and herded onto ships on the river Main. Jews were connected in business to the city’s wealthy merchants, while Fettmilch led the small craftsmen and traders opposed to the Jewish presence in Frankfurt. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)


A stupid person called Yamit82 who calls himself Jewish asked why we should be concerned about Jews. Answer…we are concerned about Antisemitism and we are concerned because we are Trotskyists. The question was hostile. There ARE traitors inside the Jews too.


We are opposed to people who hate Jews, hate Israel as the Jewish Homeland and also who hate Trotsky and Trotskyism.


Could we be more clear on this Kristallnacht75!


We are not talking either in an academic manner. We are building an organization…building a party…building a Trotskyist Party.


We have decided…the best way to commemorate Kristallnacht75 is to continue our work on Kristallnacht into the future days and years.


In coming weeks we will be exposing sharply the politics of Israel haters like George Galloway and Jenny Tonge.


We are in solidarity with Jewish writers like Goldhagen who wrote the important book referring to Antisemitism “The Devil that Never Dies”. All of our members will study that book. But Goldhagen is deficient and does not offer any solution. We will. That is the difference.


Our central task is to build the party that will defend Israel in this critical period.


Do not ever dare to ask any of our members why we do this. The answer is we do because we are Trotskyist.


Galloway with Hamas official on entering Gaza


George Galloway has just spoken on video, on the issues in Libya, Egypt and Syria, which has been translated from his English, into Arabic on the video, and back into English, and this is it (allowing for those translations)

 carried on the pro NATO Harry’s Place

(Please note that I’ve translated a translation from English into Arabic back into English, so there may be a slight discrepancy in the words used.)


(It is very revealing. Galloway is hiding the role of Islam, and this is totally obvious from what he says, is correct in opposing NATO but is hiding the alliance of people like Hague and Cameron with Al Qaida against Gadhafi, and thus providing a cover for Islam. He also strives to drive and divert the movement into hatred for Israel which is the whole essence of the left politics of today)

“If the Syria regime were to be toppled by this alliance, this extreme alliance which is supported by the puppet Khaddam and by the people who supported the Homs massacre [surely Hama?] which was carried out by Rifat Al Assad,and by people who are working for Israel and others who are working for France and the US, in addition to genuine demonstrators who want change.

“This coalition isn’t secure at all, and the Syrian people should know that the Imperialists are not investing a lot (to defeat Assad) because they love the Syrian people. So I ask this question, If the regime were overthrown then would Israel give you back the Golan? This America which is supporting the your so-called revolution in Syria, will they tell Israel to give you back your land? Absolutely not.

“The Syria regime has made a lot of mistakes, historically and right now, and the way they’ve responded at the beginning of these demonstrations, was a massive mistake.

“However they [imperialists?] are not trying to destroy Bashar because of anything bad which he’s done, but they are trying to destroy Bashar because of the good things which he has done– for instance his support for the Palestinian resistance, his support for the Lebanese resistance, his refusal to surrender to Israel, his refusal to allow Syria to be a base for the invasion of Iraq. These are the reasons why they’re trying to destroy Bashar Al Assad.

“I think that Bashar Al Assad wants reform and that he wants change… He wants to respond to the demand for change which a lot of people want. I urge him to quickly get this underway. Yes it’s late in the day, but I will never ever support NATO in Libya and this cocktail of Zionism and Imperialism in Syria right now.”


Galloway says he will never support NATO in Libya.


But Galloway hides something very important here, and that is that NATO is in alliance with Islam (the “rebels” are Al Qaida)


But Galloway does not say that he opposes NATO PLUS ISLAM in Libya. He just says NATO.


This is where he tells the Big Lie and keeps workers and youth in the world back from understanding that there is a real alliance in operation in the world today


He is presenting to readers a left front, but in reality he is hiding the role of


Go right through this left today and you will find this lying about the actual concrete situation. The left like Galloway are in an alliance with Islam.


As is imperialism! Go figure!


The Left has been coopted by the forces of US and EU Imperialism, just as much as the Provies in Ireland were taken over by British and Irish Intelligence…TOTALLY!


Read what Galloway said above, and then read what we on 4international said today on the issue of Libya


Our first 4 paragraphs (before reading what Galloway said) are:

It is pretty much the case that war alone on 4international came out from the very beginning and called for the victory to Muammar Gadhafi. This did not imply political programmatic agreement. Just that Gadhafi was fighting the alliance of Imperialism with Islam Imperialism.


Now the murder of the Generals shows that Al Qaida does control the “rebels”. Argument over!


We were absolutely right. We alone were absolutely right.


Switch the scene to Egypt.


Harry’s Place is a split entity. I always follow what Habibi has to write and say on the issue of the alliance of people like Galloway with Hamas and Fatah (But others on Harry’s Place support the Jihad against the Serbs…as I said split)

This is most important

(begin Habibi’s report here)

Another day, another friendly meeting with mass murderers. That’s life for George Galloway.

Here he is earlier this week in Beirut meeting Abu Imad al-Rifa’i, the “Lebanon representative” of Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ). Other leaders of the terrorist group were also at the meeting.

PIJ was grateful for the visit:


For his part, Rifai thanked Galloway and his delegation for the efforts they are making in Europe and many countries of the world in support of the Palestinian Cause

PIJ is dedicated to the destruction of Israel. It has a horrifying history of suicide bombings of civilians in Israel stretching back to the 1990s. It is backed by Iran and Syria and has been proscribed by the UK.

PIJ has also said that it carried out a suicide bombing in Iraq. It was Rifa’i who proudly made the claim. Though Iraq was not allowed to distract PIJ from its core mission:

“Al-Quds Brigades brings to our people and nation the good news of the arrival of its first martyrdom to the heart of Baghdad,” said a statement faxed to news organizations.

“This is to fulfill the holy duty of defending Arab and Muslim land,” it said.

The group’s Lebanon representative, Abu Imad al-Rifai, confirmed the statement to Reuters News Agency. He said the suicide bombers had not come from Palestinian territories but from several countries.

The group, which the U.S. government lists as a terrorist organization, also claimed responsibility for Sunday’s suicide bombing in a crowded pedestrian mall in the Israeli seaside town of Netanya. The bombing wounded at least 30 people.

The bomber set off his explosives studded with nails near a group of Israeli soldiers, after a security guard prevented him from entering a crowded café, police and witnesses said.

Galloway minions Kevin Ovenden and Rob Hoveman tagged along and are shown in the picture below.

Presumably meeting terrorists is more important to Mr Ovenden than filing accounts for Viva Palestina, where he is a trustee. This is what the pro-Hamas charity’s compliance record looks like:

Oh well, Galloway certainly can’t be accused of letting down his important friends at home with so many foreign jaunts. Last week he found time to raise funds for “Britain 2 Gaza”, the UK arm of the next pro-Hamas flotilla, and Interpal too.

When will the UK win some sort of prize for its excellent services as a base for funding and promoting terrorists?


Habibi is right. We will have to follow more closely this planned flotilla because Irish antisemites are heavily involved.


George Galloway is allowed to get off with far too much in the British working class movement.


I have googled his position on the Gaza War and thereby have been taken to a video of a speech he made in Parliament. I am surprized that this has not been given more air play.

It is on a very reactionary website, a very anti Israel site called Pulse Media (

Without looking at the video I am taking the transcript below the video and hope these are Galloway’s exact words. I presume they are because this site is favourably disposed towards Galloway

[Begin quote from Galloway in British Parliament]

George Galloway, the finest speaker in the British Parliament, lambasts the Government for its complicity in the Gaza massacre, suggesting it takes a more active, just, role in resolving the conflict, given its responsibility dates as far back as 1917 when Arthur Balfour promised Zionist colonisers a home in Palestine.

It’s worth remembering Zionist influence is an important factor in Parliament: from Theodor Herzl and Chaim Weizmann who lobbied for a “Jewish homeland” in Palestine to the modern day Friends of Israel groups that organise brainwashing trips for MPs to Sderot (the first stop on these trips is predictably the holocaust memorial Yad Vashem, designed to remind leaders the coloniser is really the eternal “victim”).

1. “Gaza Massacre”

Galloway does not explain that this recent war by Israel was a defensive measure if ever there was such.

Hence Galloway does not refer to 8000 rockets from Gaza into Israel which has made life intolerable for all Israelis and especially for children.

Netanyahu was dead right when he said of those Hamas rockets…rockets from civilian areas, rockets on top of civilians…a double war crime right there!

That was the Palestinian Arab method over 8 years. Attacks on defenceless Israelis, not at all against the IDF, but taking the cowardly approach.

It was a defensive measure against Hamas, not a massacre in any shape of form.


Reference to the British Government and its responsibility

So Lord Balfour was wrong in giving land to the dispossessed and persecuted Jews of the world.

How is that so Galloway? What is your logic here?

At a time when there were no “Palestinian” Arabs in existence.

And at a time when there were 21 Arab states in the making.

Why was Balfour wrong in hoping for a piece of land for these Jews?


“its responsibility dates as far back as 1917 when Arthur Balfour promised Zionist colonisers a home in Palestine”

Zionist “colonizers” says galloway.

The word fairly slips off his reactionary tongue.

Here Galloway is meeting on the same ground as the odious Palestine Solidarity Campaign who actually promote Galloway heavily.

But what kind of colonizers were these people who had been persecuted for 2000 years and were only asking for a piece of land to make as their only Homeland!!!???

At a time when the Arabs were being helped to make 21 states!!!

One of which Galloway was to become Jordan, which was given to the Arabs by the Nazi type Churchill, on 78 per cent of that land promised by Balfour to the Jews.

That was British perfidy Galloway. Why not deal with that perfidious act by perfidious Albion.


And Galloway you use this word “colonizers”. Since when did a persecuted people become colonizers.

And since when did colonizers come across and pay huge amounts of money, and since when did colonizers take over swamps and through hard labour drain them and make them fruitful.

It pains me and it irks me dealing with Galloway word for word!


So I will finish with this. Galloway is one of those who makes much of what is called the Jewish Lobby. But why? That is the really interesting question.

Remember there is a Scottish lobby, there is an Irish lobby, there is an American lobby, all in the British Parliament. Perplexing that Galloway gets riled up over a Jewish Lobby

So quoting that last full paragraph by Galloway!


It’s worth remembering Zionist influence is an important factor in Parliament: from Theodor Herzl and Chaim Weizmann who lobbied for a “Jewish homeland” in Palestine to the modern day Friends of Israel groups that organise brainwashing trips for MPs to Sderot (the first stop on these trips is predictably the holocaust memorial Yad Vashem, designed to remind leaders the coloniser is really the eternal “victim”).

And just ask the reader to google the Protocols of Zion, at the same time look at the Hamas Charter, and think a little on the Galloway paragraph above in Parliament.

“Zionist influence an important factor in Parliament”.

I ask Galloway one question:


Galloway are you not aware how close you sail to the Protocols of Zion!!!


by Felix Quigley

March 10, 2009

The biggest issue today is to build a true revolutionary socialist leadership, a Trotskyist party, in the working class.

Such a party must place the well being of the Jewish people and their freedom from antisemitism at the very top of its priorities.

If a party does not line up with the Jews against antisemitism then it is not worthy of the name of Trotskyism.

Who is George Galloway and what is the Palestinian Aid Convoy that has arived in Gaza?

This statement by Galloway may help:

[Begin statement from Galloway here]

We have brought with us many vehicles, much equipment, much medicine, everything we could carry. And we will hand it to Ismail Haniyeh, the elected prime minister of Palestine.

[End statement by Galloway here]

Hamas is of course the same organization that was founded by the Nazi war criminal Hajj Amin el Husseini, and also by Izetbegovic the darling of the US in Bosnia. The roots of these movements are in the Muslim Brotherhood.

Hamas is also promoting Holocaust Denial. One should remember that Islam in the form of Husseini was directly involved in the Holocaust.

This essentially is what Galloway was doing.  He was handing the aid to Hamas and to the very top leader of Hamas at that. And boasting about it.

Let me try to summarise the position of Galloway and his relationship with Hamas. Then we can look a litle further at Hamas whom Galloway associates with.

I do not know how elastic is the mind of Galloway. So let me nevertheless try to narrow things down. This is important because Galloway is in no way an individual case but represents the common position on the wrongly named Left.


Galloway takes in the Gaza War a very hostile position towards Israel and total sympathy towards Hamas. (In a future article we will examine this a little more)


I am not sure how often Galloway condemned the Hamas rocket bombardment of Sderot and other places in Israel. Did he at all?


But in any case Galloway leads the Palestine Convoy as the main figure head and arriving in Gaza makes a point of handing the money etc across to the head of Hamas in Gaza.


That same head of Hamas is directly responsible for, to take just one item, that picture which we publish of men and a kid dressed to kill Jews, Israelis, that is civilians


So it is Galloway…aid to Hamas…Hamas killing Jews…Hamas denying Holocaust…Hamas blaming Jewish leaders of the time for the Holocaust…Which also means Hamas excusing the Nazis and the Nazi extermination of the Jews campaign. Galloway is bringing money to the leader of these Holocaust Deniers!


[Start quote here]

From Palestinian Media Watch (in full — not yet online):

Jewish leaders planned the Holocaust to kill “disabled and handicapped” Jews to avoid having to care for them, according to a Hamas TV educational program. As much of the world prepared to commemorate Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Hamas TV presented its latest sinister twist on Holocaust denial.

The Hamas TV educational program, broadcast last week, taught that the murder of Jews in the Holocaust was a Zionist plot with two goals:

1- To eliminate “disabled and handicapped” Jews by sending them to death camps, so they would not be a burden on the future state of Israel.

2- At the same time, the Holocaust served to make “the Jews seem persecuted” so they could “benefit from international sympathy.”

Amin Dabur, head of the Palestinian “Center for Strategic Research” explained that “the Israeli Holocaust – the whole thing was a joke, and part of the perfect show that [Zionist leader and future Israeli prime minister] Ben Gurion put on.” The “young energetic and able” were sent to Israel, while the handicapped were sent “so there would be a Holocaust.”…

[End quote here]

A video of this can be seen on the solomonia site.


On the actual arrival in Gaza of this very reactionary convoy

From the Harry´s Place website the following

George Galoway said:

“I have entered Palestine many times but the most emotional of these is after the 22-day genocidal aggression against the Palestinian people,”


Other convoy-goers were similarly full of joy:

“…completely on a high, a high like no other. They say thats the same feeling every person on the convoy is having, it’s amazing! They said they’ve not even reached Gaza City yet and the streets are lined with thousands of people. Abu Bakr mentions that just like every other country they passed, there are alot of bodyguards with big guns, but here it dosnt make you fell scared, it makes you feel safe,  “they all give a huge smile whenever we look at them”.

This is what the left so called on this convoy directed by Galloway are saying. Yhey are not scared.

Consider then the following photograph


Smile, kid…

I mean the whole thing is set up to drive terror into the hearts and lives of Jews living in Israel.

This is obviously a culture of pure evil that Galloway is associating with by bringing this money and material goods and handing it over specifically to the leader of Hamas.


I mean the picture above is not a fake and is all too common. The Hamas and Fatah are basically based on Jew Hatred.

From the time of the San Remo Conference held by the League of Nations in 1920 and which promised the Jews all of Palestine, including present day Jordan, the Arabs at that stage having 21 other states in the making, the Jews are now having to fight for a share of the remaining 22 per cent.


It is wise to remember that. In our history section ( we will deal with the history of this in detail.

But this Jew hatred promoted by Hamas, its Holocaust Denial, the referring of the Israeli defence of rockets to the Warsaw Ghetto etc, all of this can only lead in one direction, towards a new Holocaust of the Jews.


Now Galloway is out of the British Labour Party and refers to himself a lot as a socialist.

This is the great problem. The US Nazis who took over from the German Nazis in 1945 have managed to create a left that is really full of hatred for Israel, which is the Homeland of the Jews.

And this left that the US Nazis have created is working with Islamofascists, also created by the US Nazis quite deliberately.

Again that sentence is irrefutable. Galloway IS working with Islamofascists, that is with the leader of Hamas.

Not mind you with an ordinary Fascist rocket toting foot soldier of Hamas, but with the LEADER of Hamas!

It is only possible to move forward in one way and that is by building a party in the working class which will fight against this Israel hatred and Jew hatred as expressed in Hamas´s Holocaust Denial, and in the close and obvious connection of Galloway with Hamas. From his own lips above the connection is proven.
