Our Happy Bygone Days

"We lived in communist paradise and weren't aware of it." I have heard this sentence from many ex-citizens of the ex-USSR, from Russians and Tajiks, from Ukrainians and Balts, and I agreed with them wholeheartedly: Soviet Russia was a land of spiritual and educated men who loved their work, were proud of their country, despised money, were hospitable and kind. Stephen Gowans (Hail the Reds, has eloquently eulogised the lost paradise:  MORE

The Saga of Woods

Do not take my polemics with Alan Woods for a learned discussion of the Russian Revolution; the argument is not about Leon Trotsky and Joseph Stalin (let their souls rest in peace in the bosom of Marx in the Communist paradise) but about extremely relevant issues of our day, though presented in historical perspective.  MORE

The Marxists and the Lobby
By Israel Shamir

When an author and an editor of a left-wing magazine repeats word-perfect the last speech of Ashcroft at ADL New York, it can’t but cause some eyebrow twitching. That is the case with recent condemnation of ‘antisemitism’ by Nat Weinstein on pages of The Socialist Viewpoint, a high-quality magazine consistently supporting democracy in Palestine and end to the Jewish apartheid state.

Dogs & Foxes
(Letter to Lisandro Otero)

By Israel Shamir

When the red-jacketed British gentlemen ride after fox upon green hills of Surrey, they call ‘yoicks’ to encourage their dogs; the Jews cry ‘antisemitism’ to encourage theirs. ‘Yoicks’ terrifies the fox; ‘antisemitism’ is the means to terrify opposition to the New World Order. It is their equivalent of a Papal bull proclaiming the crusade against heretics.

The Tail Waging the Dog

Response to Halévy

Réponse à Halévy :

Ilan Halevi is one of the best Israelis; a man who made the right choice. His essay (Once again concerning Zionism and anti-Semitism) is also good and rather correct. But there are few points that could be and should be debated in a comradely way.

The most important error of Halevi is that he subscribes to well-debunked Chomsky's Thesis that "it is not the tail that wags the dog". MORE

Not Cricket

The Israeli soul is the scene of struggle between two forces, between two loyalties: that to the land and that to the world-wide Jewish People. The loyalty to the land can eventually form a basis for complete unity with the native Palestinian people. The loyalty to world Jewry (Am Israel) is the basis of our xenophobia, of the Wall, of the apartheid state. The Palestinians are denied equal rights in order to sustain the ‘Jewish character’ of the state. The ugliest crimes of Zionism are perpetrated in the name of the Jewish People; ‘Jewishness’ is the engine of ethnic cleansing in our country. Thus our struggle against ‘the Jewish character of the State’ is an important spiritual element in the struggle for democracy in Palestine.  MORE
