The so-called Six Day War that broke-out on June 5, 1967 – was a massive land-grab exercise perfectly planned and executed by the Zionist Authorities of Israeli! In typical (and deceptive) Zionist style, this mass invasion of Arab territory has been presented as an ‘act of self-defence – falsely implying that the Arabs are responsible for their own plight and deserve everything that Israel has perpetuated against them! In reality, this shocking exercise in neo-imperialism saw the military defeat of Egypt, Syria and Jordan. This defeat led to the Israelis occupying East Jerusalem, the West Bank of the Jordan River, the Gaza Strip and the Golan Heights and only served to tighten the Zionist noose that was already around the necks of the Palestinians! On June 8, 1967, the Israeli Airforce deliberately attacked the USS Liberty – a lightly armed US Naval ship that was sailing in international waters north of the Sinai Peninsula. This planned Israeli attack upon a US Naval ship killed 34 US Naval Personnel and wounded another 171! The Israeli method of trying to provoke the US to get involved in a conflict the Zionists themselves had started failed yet again.
The average Russian worker had never experienced such good times! Men and women were equal in every field, and children’s rights were recognised and respected! All adults over 18 years old could vote, education was free for all and truly universal! Industrial output and agricultural were booming as the Soviet State combined full employment together with scientific organisation, planning and advanced technology! Non-Europeans (including the Chinese and Koreans amongst many others, including Africans and African-Americans) frequented the schools, factories, medical centres and sporting facilitates! The Workers and Peasant Red Army employed men and women and explored many and different ways of projecting the USSR. The population expressed their gratitude and support by continuously ‘voting’ Joseph Stalin into Office (yes, the Soviet population participated in numerous and many democratic elections)!
A modern Russian can be ‘racist’ and ‘homophobic’ claiming that these attributes are part of his modern ‘Slav’ identity (‘Nationalism’) – whilst simultaneously asserting that these viewpoints are ‘separate’ and ‘distinct’ from Hitler’s ‘National Socialism’ and any post-1945 versions of it (that is ‘Neo-Nazism’)! This is wrong. It is an assertion even contradicted in the text itself, which readily admits that the Hitlerite ‘Combat 18’ (Neo-Nazi) is the military wing of the ‘British National Party’ (a Party in the UK that prided itself on it ‘English’ Nationalism)! I notice that even within general Russian language discourse, ‘Neo-Nazis’ in the Ukraine are often referred to as ‘Ultra-Nationalists’ – with the Neo-Nazi Battalions are acknowledged as forming the Hitlerite ‘National Guard’!
A bit of revolutionary aesthetics – the alternative flag of the Communist Party of Great Britain. Classic “Union Jack” coupled with the motif of the
As Gorbachev was dismantling the Soviet System from within – the Soviet people continued to pursue their daily lives as if the Socialism they enjoyed
This is the debilitating effects of creeping Trotskyism, racism and the associated forces of predatory capitalism that have infiltrated and gnawed away at the ideological underpinnings of the British Communist Movement ever since Khrushchev’s betrayal of Comrade Joseph Stalin in 1956! Unfortunately, this non-dialectical and non-historical materialist approach to assessing this situation will cost the CPB dearly in the future, as the grandchildren and great grandchildren of those British working-class men and women who fought fascism in Spain and throughout WWII – and who participated in the Chinese Revolution (and even took the Chinese and North Korean side in the early 1950s), will never forgive this dalliance with fascism and Neo-Nazism in the Ukraine!
