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.

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.

(This article is quite amazing and it is also important to read and to think about in this special week for Jews and for humanity in general, the week of 75 years since the fateful Kristallnacht, that is Kristallnacht75.

www.4international is a Trotskyist organization which fights for socialism to replace capitalism. The left has gone completely astray over the Palestinian Arab issue.
As far as we know we are the only and sole revolutionary socialist movement in the world which defends Israel unconditionally against the propaganda of the Palestinian Arabism.
As I see it their nationalism is a cover for Islam. They are Muslims devoted tot he Koran, which is filled with Antisemitism.
The pioneer of the Palestinian Arabs was Hajj Amin el Husseini. In this special week will publish an article each day which will explain the role of that Arab Palestinian Nazi in the Holocaust)

A day after calling for an end to sanctions against Iran and saying that Tehran  respects human rights, South Africa’s Foreign Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane  said Friday that South African ministers are not visiting Israel out of  solidarity with the Palestinians.
“Ministers of South Africa do not visit  Israel currently. Even the Jewish Board of Deputies that we engage with here,  they know why our ministers are not going to Israel,” South Africa’s The Times quoted the minister as saying.
Nkoana-Mashabane was speaking at a meeting  of South Africa’s largest trade union, which was also addressed by a group  campaigning for the release of all Palestinian political prisoners, the Times reported.
“The struggle of the people of Palestine is our struggle,” she  said.
“The last time I saw a map of Palestine, I couldn’t sleep,”  Nkoana-Mashabane added, explaining that the map “is just dots, smaller than those  of the homelands, and that broke my heart.” The “homelands,” also called  Bantustans, were territories set aside for blacks in apartheid-era South  Africa.
Iran’s nuclear quest, however, did not bother the South African  foreign minister, who on Thursday praised Iran for its “respect” for human  rights.
“South Africa, like all other peace-loving democratic countries  that also respect human rights, like Iran, calls for lifting of unilateral  sanctions which would be encouraged by these talks that the honorable minister  had referred to,” she said during a press conference in Pretoria with Iran’s  visiting Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.
“Conditions would be  peaceful coexistence, acceptance that all countries, signatories in particular  of the [nonproliferation treaty] have the right for peaceful usage of enriched  uranium for energy needs, for health, technology usage,” she continued,  according to a Voice of America report. During the visit, according to the  report, the two countries – which claim close ties – reaffirmed their “peaceful,  constructive and lasting relationship.”
Israeli diplomatic officials  downplayed Nkoana-Mashabane’s comments about no ministerial visits to Israel,  saying there has not been a ministerial visit from or to South Africa for  years.
“There is nothing new here,” the official said, adding that  Israeli-South African relations have been on a back burner for years, with only  a small amount of trade and tourism.
Regarding her Bantustan analogy, the  official said it was “unworthy of comment.”
