When British BBC correspondent Alexander Werth reported that he had been in the Red Army frontline when it discovered the Majdanek Concentration Camp (situated in Poland), Winston Churchill forbade the BBC from transmitting the details – referring to it as ‘Soviet propaganda’, designed to make people feel ‘sorry’ for Soviet suffering!
Of course, Jewish people have historically existed in China with no problem whatsoever, and Communist China fully condemns any and all anti-Semitism, or racial violence aimed at peaceful Jewish groups living around the world. On the other hand, the criticism of Zionism must never be associated with ‘anti-Semitism’, but rather viewed as the legitimate continuation of the common fight of the non-White people of the world (and other oppressed minorities) against White racism and the forces of fascism.
What is interesting to observe, is how Hitler’s book Mein Kampf is written very much as a tome of logical self-discovery, which sees a self-proclaimed ‘naïve’ and ‘innocent’ Hitler initially ‘rejecting’ anti-Semitism, only to be radically swayed by a sustained logical argument (particularly through the work of Dr Karl Luege, the Mayor of Vienna, and leader of the anti-Jewish Christian Social Party).
All racism is wrong. Attacks on Jews because they are ‘Jews’ is wrong, just as attacks on Palestinians, just because they are ‘Palestinians’ is also equally wrong.
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.
The modern state of Israel was the creation of British imperialism in Palestine. The British colonial authorities, whilst ignoring the wishes of the local Arab population, and bending to the strictures of Zionism – or Jewish racism – annexed part of Palestine and gave it to an influx of Jewish migrants into the area. Prior to the founding of Israel in 1948, the British colonial authorities were subjected to a sustained terrorist campaign carried out by Jewish groups already living in Palestine, and motivated by Zionism. From that day to this, the impoverished Palestinian people have been desperately fighting for their right to exist as a distinct nation, against a ruthless rightwing regime that has received continuous support from the West.
