Imperialism Causes Terrorism – Paris Attacks 13.11.15

It is interesting to see that with the tragic loss of the Russian Airliner recently (with the death of all on board), the Western European response was one of racism and disdain for Russia and the Russian victims. This callous response must be added to the continuous ignoring of deaths in Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, the Ukraine and elsewhere in the world, and the overt support the Western Europeans powers are currently granting to far-right political and religiously inspired regimes such as the neo-Nazis in the Ukraine, the Zionists in Israel and the Islamo-fascists in Saudi Arabia. The rhetoric from modern Germany in the European Union is particularly disturbing, as its call for resistance against foreign influence to preserve European values, and pronouncements by the German leader Angela Merkel that multiculturalism has ‘failed’, all sound disturbingly similar to the rhetoric of Nazi Germany in the 1930’s.

Tom Wintringham – How an Oxford Communist Founded the Home Guard

Tom Wintringham returned to the UK after the Spanish Civil War and worked as a journalist. He used his experience of fighting fascism in Spain to call for the establishment of a ‘Home Guard’ in the UK made-up of ordinary people defending the area within which they lived from the threat of armed invasion. He wrote a number of progressive books on modern warfare which emphasized guerrilla fighting but were also critical of the class-based system of the UK military. This Communistic thinking immediately made him unpopular with the rightwing Winston Churchill and the middle class officer corps.

Taiwan is Part of China Despite Hong Kong Opposition ‘Brain-washing’ Slander

Life in Hong Kong is quite different from that in the mainland of China, and it is to be expected that sometimes misunderstandings might occur that lead to friction. However, any issues that might arise can be resolved if proper understanding is applied to the situation. In this instance it seems that opposition politicians in Hong Kong are attempting to court publicity by mistakenly attacking the purpose and function of the Hong Kong National Education System.

The Issue of Zionism and Israel

Zionism, on the other hand, should not be confused with Jewish theology. Zionism is not Jewish theology, but Zionism is Eurocentric nationalist racism that assumes a ‘racial’ superiority for predominantly ‘White’ Jewish people of European descent. This has led to government policy in Israel openly discriminating against Jewish people of non-European descent (as can be seen with the treatment of the Ethiopian Jews), which has led to a racial hierarchy of ‘Jewishness’ in Israel premised upon ‘worth’ denoted entirely by skin-colour.
