10,000 Rally in Tel Aviv, Say: Finish the Job in Gaza!Rabin Square sees the first major demonstration since the country went to war against Hamas on July 8.from Israel National News today
Yesterday there was a very large demonstration in Israel, the oilice estimating 10,000 strong, and basically called to solve the problema of Hamas firing these rockets, and of course the tunnel threat was involved as well. This as far as i can see is a very new development. The Israeli people are starting taking to the streets on an issue that can not be solved by peaceful means or by talking, or by compromiso or by agreements made one day with Jew Haters broken the next.
There was no agreement anong the 10,000 who took part as to how to solve this, only that they took to the streets to demonstrate. They all know now that Netanyahu’s leadership is very faulty although they do not want to stab him in the back either. There is deep unease.
We believe this can only be solved by a new type of leadership
Let us first consider the war again, or what Netanyahu called an “Operation”
WE WROTE YESTERDAY
“Now Obama clearly sees the need and the opportunity to rescue Hamas by promoting Abbas and Fatah.”
The rules of war necessitate that the enemy is overcome and if necessary pulverised in the shortest time-span possible.
The war with Hamas was a war even though the Netanyahu Israeli elite and political tendency centred around Israeli Labour and the Israeli Stalinists sought to call it by another name “operation”!
But Netanyahu sought to drag this “initiative” into a never ending series of Hamas rockets on Israel followed by “overwhelming” force.
Netanyahu perhaps aimed and hoped to answer the Antisemites in the world centred on the world media with an answer “But they fired first and our people need and deserve calm”.
What the Media did was the obvious. The Media ignored this argument totally and concentrated on the damage that the Israeli bombs, rockets and shells were doing in Gaza.
What a wonderful canvas these Antisemites had to work on.
Provided by Mr Netanyahu! Israel supporters and there are plenty in the world could only sit and squirm.
First they would start their reports with the figures of dead. Big number of “Palestinians” dead and according to the Media they were all “Civilians”. Then a much smaller number of Israelis out of which were no civilians, then 1 civilian the rest soldiers and so on.
Then these horrible creatures, these journalists creating all kinds of mind images on the screen of what these horrible and rich Jews were doing to their poor “Palestinians”
Day after day, hour after hour.
The news was dominated by Gaza. The real tragedy of Christians and of Azedis was totally ignored. ISIL were beheading children and there was no coverage.
And after all of that providing of perfect tableaus for Antisemitism stirring the Israelis got nothing for the “Operation” of Netanyahu.
In fact they are worse off because the tunnels are still in shape in most of the Gaza and the doors are opening for Hamas to install bigger rockets with direction added.
It really was not a match at all. It was a rout. And the Arabs routed Israel.
Jews can learn from Trotskyism. An absolute principle in the fight of Trotsky against Stalinism and against Labour Parties ideology is that the working class battalions must forever stand on their own feet and defend themselves with their own forces and never depend on the forces of any other class.
This is one of the big problems of this type of Netanyahu rule. He and his fancy “philosophers” are full of how the enemy are split among themselves, such as Saudi against Qatar. While not to be dismissed totally the most important thing is the independent action of the Israeli nation.
Make a very small adjustment for Israel “Nation” (from Trotsky and class) and you will see how dangerous is Netanyahu. He never for a moment depended on the Jewish nation to fight this battle.
Netanyahu kept the whole nation in the dark. Heck he even kept his own party the Likud in the dark. He had only the one sidekick Ya’alon and I am sure he did not even tell Ya’alon all.
(Then in the middle of this war sorry “operation” there was the horrific disciplining by Netanyahu of Danny Dayon)
So the Israeli people were sending their sons and daughters into the war and they had no clue what these sons and daughters were fighting for.
Furthermore Netanyahu did not eventually know either because his stated targets of the war would morph as the war went better or worse than he hoped it would.
That is insanity. But it becomes a bitter insanity when you come to realise that those were the methods used in the West Bank, in Gaza and in Lebanon (twice) before in the past 20 years.
There must be a new movement put on the ground, with its membership, with its press, with its political analyses and directives as soon as possible. Those Jews (Jewish Patriots) with good influence must urgently meet and seriously make plans to challenge once and for all this insanity.
However this is the thing
In our article yesterday posted on the Martin Sherman Facebook 24 hours after posting and our call for a new type of party or leadership, that is leadership solving, there was nobody on that well read fórum who made any comment on this. This also has huge implications for Israel. Silence also has implications. We will continue this
