Yesterday I claimed that in the face of Abbas Hamas pact that the Israeli leaders, all of them, were paralysed. How sadly true that was. Interviewed by BBC Antisemites Netanyahu was on the defensive. Netanyahu used the word “peace” 20 times. But unfortunately it is war.
Netanyahu is a creature of US Imperialism and if Jews are not careful the whole of the Israeli struggle for a Homeland is going down the same road. It is a life and death struggle now to create a new leadership which can break from the past. In this real and material world who cares about acceptance by capitalist nation states all of which are being driven (like Spain) towards Fascist rule once again. Who cares, really?
Yet Netanyahu will NOT fight the Americans. The US said at first (yesterday) that Abbas joining Hamas was not a nice thing to do, but this morning 24 hours later America was calling for a “compromise” to be reached. Who has to compromiso? The Jews. That is the same as asking Jews as they were marched into the Nazi concentration camp to compromiso!!! Hamas and Abbas ARE the Nazis in modern form.
The Islam enemy of the Jews now Abbas and Hamas has called war and America calls compromise. America wants Jews to compromise, as in 1939 at the gates of Auschwitz
But America that is Kerry were not seeking compromise this morning when they were declaring war on Russia over Ukraine. When will this hypocrisy ever be ended.
On all of these issues Israeli and Jewish leadership is bankrupt. They can DO nothing and will do nothing. Jewish leadership is a total danger to the Jewish people on all of its fronts.
Here I kid you not. Just yesterday the Jewish so called blog called Israpundit gang of violent Fascists were focussed (at this time) on driving off Israpundit a Christian man who this gang of fascists had labelled an Antisemite. This particular Christian has the same policy more or less as Martin Sherman in that he calls for Arabs to be induced to leave with lump sum payment. So he is an asset to the Jews. But the gang of Israpundit were driving him off AND OTHERS with repeated slurs of him being an Antisemite.
It is just an expression of the crisis, no more tan that. Groups and individuals that have sprung up around the Jewish movement have to be questioned on every single issue of programme and policy. But when they start throwing the label “Antisemite” around that is a real danger sign.
The situation needs urgently a revolutionary socialist Trotskyist Party. This will go back into the 1930s and to the analysis which Leon Trotsky was making against Stalinism and against Fascism. How to defeat Imperialism? How to stop Fascism? How to save Jews from Antisemitism? The fight against Stalinism and the legacy of Stalinism! The fight for principle! Opposition to isolationism and the struggle for a principled Trotskyist Party in these conditions of world capitalist crisis.
First of all American diplomats like Kerry must be banned from entering Israel.
The forces of this Fascist movement which we can label as “Palestinianism” must be smashed. This means the immediate arrest of the PA leadership and as el Sisi did with Morsi Abbas must be placed on trial for his crimes. Join forces with el Sisi to smash hamas totally, and executing all its leaders all of whom have murdered Jews. But take possession of both gaza and Sinai.
The politics of Caroline Glick must be opposed down the line—I would say on everything and here I disagree with Martin Sherman…I say oppose her on everything! There can be no living at all with Arabs in the Jewish homeland and rather than that Jews have to protect themselves from this form of Antisemitsm. Glick proposes to make them citizens…what a horror show that is and what a horror show is Glick!
Israel has to be far less reliant on these international capitalist governments. Israel is far too intent on business. Fight for principle. Israel must now urgently create an Alliance with those Russians in Ukraine who are fighting Fascism and fighting NATO. Israel must state that the Kiev regime must be overthrown and as an immediate action Russia must move into East Ukraine with all its force to stop these murders of antifascist fighters as happened yesterday…five murdered by the Fascists. But Israeli leaders say not a Word…a horror show for Jews. People are fighting Fascism and Jews are silent as the grave!
And so on. Name any issue and Israeli leaders are totally useless and worse downright dangerous for Jews.
Above all créate a party which will fight in concrete form for principle. This is 4international and we do have a definite programme of theory and action which is rooted inside the great history of Trotskyism. So far it is a free world. join us if you have the courage to act rather tan talk…Felix Quigley
