Why Jews wanted Israel

Kielce

These are the concluding sections of an article on “The Jewish Problem After Hitler”, by Albert Glotzer (writing as Albert Gates), in the “Third Camp” Trotskyist journal The New International of September 1947 (eight months before the creation of Israel). The article was written in response to an article on the same subject of July 1946 by Ernest Mandel, who would become the main writer of “Orthodox Trotskyism” over decades until his death in 1995. Picture is of people grieving for those killed in 1946 pogrom against Jews in Kielce, Poland.

Netanyahu woos far right

netanyahu

Israeli prime minister Benyamin Netanyahu has persuaded two far-right racist parties to merge in return for offering them government posts if he wins the Israeli general election due on 4 April.

One of the two parties is Jewish Power, a scarcely-concealed continuation of the Kahane movement which has been banned in Israel since 1988 as terrorist and racist. It advocates expelling Palestinians and Israeli Arabs who refuse to swear “loyalty”, and an expanded Jewish state taking in the whole West Bank.

No way to fight witch-hunt

Submitted by AWL on 16 January, 2019 - 10:59 Author: Dale Street

The keynote motion from the steering committee of “Labour Against the Witchhunt” to the LAW conference on 2 February sums up the core elements of left antisemitism.

LAW is not focused on the many hundreds of socialists expelled from the Labour Party, without notification of charges, hearing, or appeal, since 2015, on grounds of association (however loose) with left¬wing groups such as Workers’ Liberty, Socialist Appeal, or Left Unity. Its prime concern is with Labour Party members charged with antisemitism.

Trump’s bluster, Assad’s strength

al-Bashir and Assad

On 19 December, US president Donald Trump announced a snap decision to withdraw US troops from Syria. At first he said the troops would be out within 30 days, but now it looks like several months at least. The plan is now conditional on assurances from Turkey regarding the safety of the Kurds in Northern Syria.

Another voice from Gaza

Asmaa al-Ghoul

A rebel in Gaza, behind the lines of the Arab Spring, by Asmaa al-Ghoul (pictured) and Selim Nassib is a short and easy-to-read book that should be read on the left.

For much of the British left Gaza exists only as an example of Israeli brutality; and Hamas, the Islamist group that runs Gaza, exists only as a group that fights Israeli bullying.

This book tells us about another aspect of the matter - what it is like to live as an opponent of Hamas, in Gaza, under a one-party religious state.

Comment être pro-palestinien ...sans être «antisioniste»?

Submitted by cathy n on 16 November, 2018 - 10:27 Author: Martin Thomas

Le terme «antisioniste» était rare dans le discours politique, lorsque les véritables débats avec les sionistes constituaient une partie vivante des discussions au sein de la gauche au sens large, au début du XXe siècle. Son utilisation a quadruplé dans les années 1930, lorsque le mouvement stalinien prit un tournant ouvertement «antisioniste» et antisémite.
