Opportunism on the Left with Regards to the Palestinian Struggle
September 4th 2003
V.I. Lenin spent a good deal of his effort in his book "What is to Be Done" to expose opportunism in the left. Today we see the wisdom of Lenin in the pathetic state of the left in the Western hemisphere countries, and specifically inside the belly of the beast, the United States of America.
No where has this failure been more evident than in the Zionification of the communist movement USA. We are shocked on occasion to discover how deep and far are the tentacles of the Zionist monster amongst leftists in the United States.
Under the guise of being opposed to anti-Semitism many in the left are terrorized into accepting the state of "israel" and the fascism it practices on a daily basis onto the Arab people of Palestine. Worst still many will work hard to justify it and reconcile it with their internationalist character.
We on the other-hand standing firm in our Marxism-Leninism and our commitment to expose the Zionist state of "israel", have not been terrorized and will not relent in making sure that the state of "israel" will no longer exist. Not in the communist movement nor anywhere else for that matter.
We Arab Marxists have understood for a long time now, that Palestine is Arab and belongs to the Arab people. We saw Lenin describe an exclusive state for the "Jewish people" as a giant ghetto that will not solve the Jewish question. We understood as Lenin had taught us that the Zionist project in Palestine is nothing more than colonialism serving imperialism and oppressing the right of nations like the Arab nation to the right for self-determination.
In fact, "israel" and all it stands for is fascism in practice and theory and we as communists will have nothing to do with it but to bring its hasty destruction.
We assert what the Palestinian people have done for the last four decades and more, in the original Palestinian National Charter, that Bill Clinton tried to tear up with the help of the Palestinian comprador.
We say Palestine belongs to the Arab people, we do not recognize the Zionist state of "israel", and maintain that the Arab unification socialist project is the only answer.
We knew as surly as we know now that the state of "israel" was created by British imperialism to serve British imperialist interests in fragmenting the Arab homeland and oppressing the Arab people.
That the state of "israel" today is the instrument of American imperialist aggression in the region. We reject the two state solution promoted by imperialism because we do not recognize "israel's" right to exist.
We think its very existence is a defeat to socialism in the Arab homeland. "Israel' is the imperialist bulwark against the building of socialism and the triumph of the working classes in the Arab homeland.
We work hard for this un-recognition of "israel" by opposing normalization of relations with it. We maintain as the Palestinian National Charter did that armed struggle is the only negotiation with Zionism we advocate, and that it alone will lead to the liberation of Palestine and its return to the Arab people.
We consider for this to take place as a major blow for imperialism in the region.
We call on principled Marxists to join the call for exposing this opportunism amongst the left and to work on establishing a more principled position in support of the liberation of Palestine.
Let us throw the fascist Zionists out of Palestine and out of the communist movement.
Let us work on creating a principled and meaningful communist movement in the USA built with the Mexican migrant workers, the African poor, and homeless in this nation to turn them into the next proletarian army of the revolution.
