The central position that I as a Trotskyist take on the Middle East is that the Jews, that is Israel, are fighting against the ghastly Islamic Jihad.
This Jihad is worldwide and it is the same in the Middle East as it is in Nigeria BOKO HARAM or in Pakistan where a Christian Mother is sentenced to death for leaving Islam, as it is in Rotherham in the North of England where Muslim gangs rape and attack British girls.
Karl Marx was a very political, theoretical and studious person. He did take time to study Islam in the Ottoman Empire and he concluded that Islam divided the world into two parts, the world of the believers,a nd the world of the Infidel, and the Muslims waged war on all of the rest of humanity. He reached this conclusion and wrote about it in The Chigago Tribune.
That is still the main lesson today.
the war against Israel by Arabs called “Palestinians” is really nothing more or less than the Islamic Jihad, the same that Marx condemned in 1852. That is about 2015 – 1852 some 163
years ago, a very long time in politics or in modern politics anyway
So why have we not learned. This is because of ideology and vested interests. There are many people who back Arabs and Muslims because of money. One of these was George Bush and the whole of the Bush family had huge ties with Saudi Oil Businessmen. Jimmy Carter huge money from Arabs for his Foundation. The Clintons huge money again from the Arabs. Tony Blair huge money. The Tories same. The Spanish Parties all are tied to this Arab wealth.
And the ideology follows.
The lies follow the ideology which is following the money.
Then there is fear. Many of these and there are many in the world who are scared stiff of Jihad. This is especially the case of the Governments of Europe and America and you can see this especially among all of the Media like the BBC. In fact I heard
You have to be independent to be able to examine things today to look at the truth.
keep in mind jihad
The key evidence as to what happened in the arson attack that burned the young Arab child does not come from any of these politicians, who all seem to have an axe to grind, but from the evidence collected by a young settler who visited the village to pay his repects to the bereaved family.
Israeli society is split down the middle. It is split on this central question which is very similar to a massive split throughout western society as a whole. The question is: “ …Is the Palestinian Arab movement a true national movement or is it an expression of Muslim Jihadist Antisemitism? THAT is the issue. THAT is the issue that is splitting Jews in Israel and is the issue that needs to be cleared up”…
The Sharon disengagement from Gush Katif in Gaza and another area in the “West Bank” was not meant to be a one off but was meant to lead to a total disengagement from large areas of the West Bank and the creation of a unitary obviously Judenfrei “Palestinian” state.
However Sharon was very nearly not able to complete even the Gaza withdrawal because the Hamas rockets were raining down on the IDF even as they withdrew from Gaza and even more importantly the masses of Israelis especially Israeli youth were showing strong misgivings about the whole Gaza withdrawal. It was that movement of the Israeli (can I call it?) mass movement that stopped Sharon advancing towards his cherished aim of creating the Palestinian Arab State, imposing a dictatorship over the Israeli people, thus instituting Jihadism inside of the Arab segment, a Jihadism meant to solve that issue once and for all.
Sharon was thus that section of Israeli society which continued to deny the central fact mentioned above … that what Israelis were always facing was a facet of the Muslim Jihad, all carefully wrapped up inside the Arab “Narrative” of lies concerning Jews driving “Palestinians” from their homes in 1948 and 1967, a narrative never answered by the Israeli elites, who controlled the state coffers, and who always had the means to answer those lies but would not ever do so.
Thus this is the basic divide inside of Israeli society. Is the Arab Palestinian Narrative and Continual Agitation against the Israeli Jewish State part of that International Muslim Jihad, or is it not?
That is the divide in Israeli society and there is no other divide. Of course there are many other “disagreements” but they are not so central as this. Jews have always fallen into many brackets. There have always been Jews with strong religious convictions and there have been Jews with strong atheist convictions. They have always managed to rub along together just fine. There is no problem here and there never has been a problem for the good and simple reason that both a religious Jew and an atheistic Jew can be bound together in a devotion to a Jewish Homeland, which is another name for the internationally recognized concept of national liberation.
It was totally a similar situation in Yugoslavia during the 1990s. There a witchhunt was raised against Slobodan Milosevic on an international scale and from there the biggest lie in the history of humanity was constructed by the Media, that is the so-called “Srebrenica Massacre”. There are two main lessons:
LESSON 1 … that in Yugoslavia the central issue was that the Christian Serbs were fighting against especially and above all the Islamist Jihadist and anti-Serb bigot Izetbegovic. He wrote “there can be no peace or co-existence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic societies and political institutions”. The struggle was against the Jihad just as the struggle in Israel is against the Jihad. Serb hatred, Jew hatred, these are the forms but the content is the Jihad which comes out of the religion/ideology of Islam
LESSON 2 … that having created the Big Lie of Srebrenica there can never be any going back by the Media. There are far too many journalists, Media Outlets, Newspapers, who have expended huge amounts of money and their own eputation. So the Big Lie needs to be continued and reconstructed anew day by day and week by week without end. There is no possibility of breaking through on this as long as the Big Media control the Narrative.
It will be the same in the Big Lie of the arson attacks in Duma. The key evidence, but evidence which has only been allowed on the pages of the Jewish patriotic Israel National News, and only once there, is that of the young Jewish “settler” who visited the place, a visit organized by left wing groups for their own Israel-hating ends.
Yonadav Tapuch travelled to Duma to pay his condolences to the family. He did so as part of a group of “settlers” who were used and who in the end were denied an occasion to speak to the family. These Jews well meaning from the Jewish villages were photographed in a certain way that propagandistically will be used against them.
However Yodadav Tapuch an ordinary Jewish man on that trip simply reported a few basic facts which are undeniable
1. There are reports that a feud existed inside this Muslim village between two families and going back 15 years. This can have great bearing on the truth of this affair.
2. The report from Duma itself said that two houses and not one was attacked. The first proved to be empty. Then these unknown arsonists found that the second house was not easy to enter or to firebomb from the front. They are said to have therefore went round the back, entered, had contact with the family, fired it, left, masked, oh and they had chosen houses in the centre of the village, so they had to make their way right out of that village, not an easy task for strangers. It seems that these arsonists had no fear, had all the time in the world, and they did all of this in a village which let them and let them have all of that time in the world to do this.
3. Our young Jewish chap had travelled out to the village by bus and on the bus he was alarmed at the hatred for the Jewish people in the villages of Judea and Samaria being expressed by those Jewish (activists against the settlers) people on the bus
Let me finish with the very revealing words of this young Jewish man in his twenties as to what he learned, and saw, all of which was and is immediately available to one and all who want to know the truth, but obviously truth here is not on the agenda at all:
“It was impossible to ignore some of the more curious aspects of the story. I would start with the fact that the two houses (I had always thought only one house was burnt) are located in the center of the village, and that in order to get there we had to travel a number of minutes from the entrance. Duma is spread out over a gigantic area, and the houses are situated at the end of a winding road, among fences and yards.
“According to the Duma version, the attackers burnt one house, then saw that it was empty, and so they went to set fire to the next house. The second house is enclosed by a fence, and the windows are covered by a dense lattice; a firebomb cannot be hurled through the windows, and in any event it is very hard to reach the windows behind the fence. The arsonists had to go around the house, enter the yard, and place the firebombs through the lattice. According to the Duma version, the attackers entered the house, stood over the parents and did not let them leave until the flames engulfed the house. Only then did the arsonists run away from the village.
“I can only say that when the arsonists are ultimately caught, we will get to hear a fascinating story of why they chose to navigate their way all the way into the middle of the village, and how they had time to set a house on fire, wait to find that it was empty, then walk around and enter another house and set it on fire, wait with the parents, spray graffiti in two places – including with a little design of a crown! – and then run away through the middle of the village with all the townspeople surely already up and on their feet seeing the flames and hearing the family’s cries. Something here is very fishy…” ”
Most revealing to me is the position of Justice Minister Shaked when she said:
“”This attack is terrorism,” Shaked said, speaking on Israel Radio. “There is no connection between it and the right wing. This is terrorism, terrorism for its own sake, and we should treat it harshly.”
“It’s not about the Right, or ‘settlers’,” she stressed. “It’s the right of the Israel Security Agency to deal with terrorism, even if it is Jewish terrorism.” “Jewish terror against the State is even more harmful to security than Arab terrorism,” she continued.
“We have experienced very few attacks against the Arabs, but such an attack does do great harm to state security and we need to use all resources to handle it.” “
There is no indication from Shaked that this may be much more and may indeed be a false flag operation made to use for repression of Jews in Israel.
When Shaked says here that “Jewish terror is even more harmful…than Arab terrorism” she is inferring, going along with the heaps of international reactionary nonsense, that it was Jews who did this, despite a whole long record and history of Arab false flags against the Jews, one of the main ones being the el Dura affair of a few years back.
This confirms my opinion of Bennett and Shaked and their party as being a little like the Podemos in Spain, thrust forward by a mass protest movement but without any real political programme to meet the crisis.
She represents another branch of leadership in Israel without any political roots and anchorage based on programme. An ad hoc grouping that when the first serious test comes she caves in to the international Antisemitism and pro-Jihadism, which is what this is all about.
It is in moments of crisis that people are tested out and Shaked in htis one statement on this critical issue shows that she will betray and betray big time.
The main thing to understand about the events in the Middle East is that it is an Islamic or Muslim Jihad against the Jews and Christians
What is needed in Israel is the same as is needed in every country, essentially a youth movement which is based on programme, which seeks the truth at every turn, and which is never swayed by propaganda, and which is rock firm on principles.
there is a huge dividing line opening up here. From the evidence of Yonadav Tapuchi it is impossible for Jewish people to have carried out this firebombing of houses. How to get in how to get out? Just not possible in such an Arab vilage simple as that.
Shaked is now a HUGE LIABILITY to all Jews. Always seen from now on as a person who joined with the enemy when the pressure was on.
It was not a Jew who did the firebombing at all. Anybody with common sense says it was not a Jew.
But say for argument sake Jews did carry out such a firebombing? That falls into the political category of individual terrorism, they attempt to use terror against the enemy Jihad, because it is based on the individual. That is not something for moral outrage, that is something to be opposed because it is the wrong method to use in a real war, because it is also a method that can be adopted by the agent provocateur, and it is a method which leads to isolation.
These events surrounding this false flag arson of an Arab house, or an inter Muslim feud arson attack on a family fastened upon by dubious forces to blacken the name of Jews. Then to use that whole false flag situation to wage a war on patriots in Judea and Samaria in order to usher in a forced set of evictions and do the same as the Gaza Withdrawal, create a Judenfrei space for the Muslim Jihad against Jews. But this all carried out by a whole layer right across the board of trairorous Jews. The big lesson here is that patriotic Jews have nobody not even Bennett and Shaked who are providing the cover for Netanyahu and others. This affoirms what I said above. The youth of Israel is the youth everywhere in every country must become independent in a mass movement to challenge this old outdated system and its treacherous political leites. That is the perspective and path. It opens up hope not despair. The very opposite of despair all is to play for because change goes quick in todays world.
