NETANYAHU CANNOT END IT
NETANYAHU CANNOT DEFEAT HAMAS
NETANYAHU SEES ONLY ISRAEL DEFENCE
Under Netanyahu and the present leaders in Israel there will never be an end to the war and Israelis will always be under attack from Hamas, and from other attacks too from inside Israel.
The mathematics is quite simple. If Israel does not take over Gaza and dismantle the terrorist Hamas, its leadership and operational bases then Israel has to live with Hamas alongside.
It should be noted very strongly that the IDF was aware of the tunnels from a long time ago. They were even aware that Hamas had changed from one single 8 hour shift to a 24 continuous three 8 hour shifts. Jews in southern Israel were hearing voices!
Gaza is therefore a piece of land that is sitting on extensive tunnels
Only one journalist in the whole international media has reported on seeing Hamas launch rockets, in that case a Finnish journalist, and she reported seeing a rocket launched from the grounds of Shifa Hospital.
This journalist is now in physical danger and will be leaving Gaza asap. This journalist reminds me of Bosnia and the brave journalist from UK Eve Ann Prentice see http://www.serbianna.com/columns/savich/076.shtml
The non reporting by the Media of Hamas war crimes, and it is also a war crime to dress up for war in civilian dress, is another important issue for Israel and for all of us who are opposed to this kind of trap.
GAZA WAR IS WIDER THAN GAZA
BUT JEWISH MEDIA IS INSULAR
JEWISH SOCIAL MEDIA IS INNSULAR ALSO
The issue of Hamas and the support effectively for Hamas by that Media is also linked to the issues of the war on the Serbs, the war on Putin and Russia, the war on Kosovo and so on.
There is also the vital matter of the left. It is obvious that in the social media, as on http://www.thejournal.ie there are an organised forcé of people who are writing all the time on the basis of an antisemitic hatred for Israel, that is for Jews. They seem to write full time.
How this can be combatted is an issue. It has not even been discussed never mind combated.
HOW THE ARAB “PALESTINIAN” NARRATIVE WAS SOLD
THE OLD ADAGE OF TRUTH STILL PUTTING HIS PANTS ON WHILE THE LIE IS HALFWAY ROUND THE WORLD
At the basis of this is the way that the Arab “Palestinian” Narrative has been sold. It has been sold most effectively. One answer to this is the book “Phantom Nation”, a large 200 page plus book of A4 size, and that is just Volume 1.
The full 3 Volumes are on Kindle. It is by Sha’i ben-Tekoa
This book is the best answer but even this book in the opinión of 4international is deficient. This is seen in his bias against Marx and Communism and his not understanding of Stalinism, nor the struggle of Leon Trotsky in defence of the Jews.
Why is a clever intelligent writer therefore so not ignorant but biased, therefore skewed?
Martin Sherman makes many good points but sadly Martin has no way to make his knowledge come to life. For that you need a party of a particular type.
Such is the confusión one person on his Facebook even advocates a Jewish “King”. People can say anything in periods of stress and crisis. That is dogma. there was a King in the past so a King now. Such would accuse Marxism as being a dogma!!!
The bottom line is that the war is already lost and this is due totally to leadership. Netanyahu never had the intention clear or otherwise of defeating Hamas.
You will never defeat Hamas if you do not intend to defeat Hamas!
Netanyahu represents a replay of the Popular Front. Perhaps he keeps Hamas because he figures he can do a deal even with Hamas against ISIL
The whole of the problem lies with Netanyahu and what he represents in Israeli society. Not personally. He represents an ideological current.
I REMEMBER WELL THE GAZA WITHDRAWAL
At the time of the Gaza Withdrawal under Sharon Netanyahu played the worst role. The plans of Sharon were meeting with more and more opposition
On Israpundit at the time myself and Joseph Alexander Norland were fighting a hard struggle against the prevarication of Ted Belman on the issue of Withdrawal. Belman had allowed an Omri Coren to post articles and Omri Coren was advocating flat out for the Sharon Withdrawal.
The arguments of Coren were never combatted by Belman who sat on the proverbial fence. But it was so maddening for me because I knew that you never give land to your enemy.
The Israeli people were really confused but as time went on and the date drew nearer and Hamas was more and more gloating and self-confident, there was a MASS movement development from deep within the Israeli masses against withdrawal.
Jared Israel did a useful article on his website which described how teenager boys and girls travelled long distances to talk to the IDF, and opposint withdrawal.
It was at this time that the utter bankruptcy of groups like Women in Green were seen. They marched Israeli religious youth up the hills and they marched them down again. But the Women in Green were pressure politics people when what was needed was a revolutionary Jewish party
In the end it was the Settlements Leaders who knifed the Israeli people in the back and they came in and backed up Sharon. Especially the Rabbis backed up Sharon.
Feiglin always note has a correct position but…Feiglin does not build a party of the mass movement. Feiglin advocates for Feiglin. Some of the things Feiglin says are good but Feiglin says them and then retreats into nothingness.
The issue in Israel is one of power. People like Netanyahu capture power in the Knesset and then rule as dictators for the next usually ten years. It appears like democracy but the Media control make it a real dictatorship. Media and money and power! Look at what Netanyahu did recently to Danny Dayon. He sacked him.
What is needed now is the most determined struggle inside and outside of the Knesset, on the soldiers committees which need to be set up if necessary, on groups like Women in Green, on social media like Jews News, on every forum as to how to mobilise the Israeli people against what is a Maoist Fascist type group (Hamas and Fatah)which is allied with US Imperialism, British Imperialism and world antisemitism.
PARTY OR SPECIAL ORGANIZATION NOT BEFORE SEEN IN ISRAEL
You need a party in Israel.
As somebody said in a comment Netanyahu is engaging in talks in Cairo and his solution is international demilitarisation of Hamas.
How did that work out in Lebanon? Brilliant wasn’t it. Israel now has 10,000 rockets of Hisbullah trained on its cities thanks to the UN, those Irish and Spanish soldiers, all great friends of the Jews y’know!
So Netanyahu must go. He must go as soon as possible. It is precisely in a war and through a war that you can see that the leaders are not up to the task
Abbas should have been arrested and the Fatah movement banned the first indication that Abbas was forming a Unity Government
All contacts with Obama who was backing that Unity Government had and have to be broken off
(Take up a big fight in Europe against the likes of Steven Ritson of Talk Radio Europe who obviously thinks the Unity Government is the way forward. This is Unity with fascists…hamas is Fascist and Ritson needs to have that stuffed down his throat)
The answer to Ritson is that you do not unite with Fascists if you do not intend to carry out a Fascist programme.
Netanyahu did nothing along these lines.
He did not arrest Abbas. He did not break off all contact with Obama and Kerry.
Netanyahu did nothing. He mouthed and mouthed but he did nothing.
HAS THERE EVER BEEN SUCH WAR BUNGLING
The War…the worst example of Israeli Government bungling.
It should be the very simplest matter to defeat Hamas. Any so called fighter who burrows underneath leaves themselves totally vulnerable to what is above and comin at em
But nothing was comin at em.
Netanyahu was throwing out feelers picked up by these disreputable journalists all round the place, not just in Israel, that it was better to keep Hamas because the alternative might be worse.
So sickening! So morale sapping!
SOME OBVIOUS STEPS
Step 1. Jews had to be withdrawn from the border with Gaza. Move them out of dangers way. Have Jews elsewhere put them up.
Step 2. The IDF drives a wedge over the ground that the Hamas leaders are skulking under
Step 3. All “civilians” out of that area. Level it. Occupy that area. Send depth charges. No Jewish soldier should go near the mouth of a tunnel. That is what depth charges are for.
Step 4. Demand that Hamas surrender and if they do not … occupy by great force and ruthlessness the whole of the Gaza area. Do not let them escape from any corner. Place the captured Hamas leadership on trial. Place the UN organizations on trial. Be prepared to meet the force of Obama’s Nato with extreme force. Send out messages of alliances with others in a similar situation such as the antifascists in Donesk Ukraine and in Crimea.
Step 4…The Arabs of Gaza. Those Arabs who support the Jewish Homeland and who reject the poison of Antisemitism in a meaningful way can remain in Israel as guests. No others can remain. No Antisemites can remain. Antisemitism remains the bottom line and main issue of our times. Trotskyist socialists cannot and must not stand aside from that
FINAL issue help us to build 4international.
