ISRAEL TODAY URGENTLY NEEDS AN “RT” TYPE WEBSITE TO TELL THE JEWISH STORY

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

THIS IS THE CORE OF ZIONISM…YOUNG JEWISH STUDENTS IN USA FIGHTING FOR HASBARA BUT WHERE FROM HERE?

Modern King David Fighting the USA Campus Goliath

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

On Shabbat I read a disturbing open letter in the Jerusalem Post and decided to blog about it. Unfortunately, it’s not one of the op-eds on their site. After a mercifully quick Google search, I found it someplace else.

An open letter to the FM By Justin Hayet

Dear Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman and the entire Netanyahu government,

I asked you, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, a question this Sunday at the Jerusalem Post’s Annual Conference in New York. My question, I thought, was simple; “What is the Foreign Ministry of Israel doing to stand with college students, like myself, to fight BDS [Boycott, Divest, Sanction] on campus?”

Your response was nothing but loaded rhetoric downplaying the existential BDS threat and downplaying the attacks against me on my campus for being a Zionist. Perhaps worst of all, you downplayed the anti-Semitic attacks on students across the United States, Europe and soon the world. These attacks exist because we are proud Zionists.

You should have responded with a big fat “nothing,” because the Foreign Ministry of Israel has decided to focus its attention elsewhere. Though it may be more practical to allocate time and resources elsewhere, in doing so, Israel is taking a risk it cannot afford to take. By focusing all of its energy on its adversaries, many of whom will never recognize Israel either on a map or as a Jewish state with a right to exist, Israel is putting the passion of North American Zionists, many of whom are Jews and many of whom are not, on the back burner. This, I believe, is of a greater existential threat than a nuclear-ambitions Iran.

I was not born in Israel. I was not born in an Israeli home in American. I am a Jewish American. But before I am anything, at the most fundamental level of my existence; like Foreign Minister Liberman, like Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, like every soldier my age in the IDF, I am a Zionist. And you, Mr. Foreign Minister, overlooked the fact that, unlike Israelis, I and the thousands of students made the active decision to fight for Israel, a country which has redefined and challenged our perception of what “home” really means.

Though five thousand miles away from Israel, we awake to Israel each morning as we flinch our eyes to see the Israeli flag hanging in its infinite blue beauty above our beds. We do so with pride. Israel is with us as we wake to see the news from the past day in Israel as we slumbered in our secure beds in upstate New York. Though not wearing a Magen David every day, we carry our Zionism on our backs each day, and people try to slander us for it as if “Zionism” is a dirty word.

We are the lost unit of the IDF Spokesman’s Office, we are the story of SUNY (State University of New York) students who stayed up until 5 a.m. to watch the victorious fight against BDS resolutions at UC Berkeley, we are the students who laughed off the libelous labels of being called “imperial genocidal maniacs” by a paid employee of our university. And we carry out these increasingly routine acts of educated-backed passion, not because we are in contract with Israel to do so or because we want accolades; we do it because we are Zionists. Contrary to those closed-minded individuals who say Zionists must live in Israel, the movement of young college students in the States fighting for Israel represents the very core of Zionism. That is, young people doing incredible things for the State of Israel.

You have given us MASA, you have contributed to the founding of Birthright-Taglit and this was your gift to us. We, now, have a gift for you, Mr. Foreign Minister and Mr. Prime Minister. Its called hasbara (public diplomacy). It’s free, it’s our duty, it’s our calling, it’s our obligation and it’s our gift to you and the Jewish state and the flag we awake to every morning. What do you think?

 

COMMENT BY FELIX QUIGLEY OF http://www.4international.me

Zionism is a great movement and we salute this callby this Young American Jew. Also it is a great call in many respects but in one respect above all others. To fight for Israel you do not have to be IN Israel. Israel in one of its respects is a refuge for Jews against Antisemitism but it is simply not accurate to say that Jews internationally are int he same position that Jews were in in 1939 in Germany and Poland. Some religious Jews are saying that at this momento in time in Europe and America it is already all over and it is too late to fight for Israel and to fight against Antisemitism. Forgive me1 I was not aware! Has a Fascist Party already taken power in America and done away with Congress? Are trade unions and all other parties other tan the Fascist Party banned and its leaders in concentration camps? I answer do not be ridiculous! Bit the answer is also based on history. In 1939 the Nazis were already in power for 6 years. the critical year in the Nazis taking power was without a doubt 1933 and I am led to the conclusión that if there had been a clear leadership in the German working class, and not the leadership of the Stalinist Comintern and the Second International (Tony Blair Labourites) in power, then the Nazis would have been stopped in 1933. But where do Young Activists like Justin Hayet go from here? To answer that question it is necessary to have a far better understanding of the political programme of Hayet and that is now an urgent necessity.
