Like many mainstream books on the issue of Palestine and Israel, a thin line has to be trodden which appears to represent both sides, but
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.
This form of neo-Nazi revisionism plays into the hands of the Western-backed neo-Nazi regimes in Eastern Europe that pursue a racist anti-Russian policy. Of course, as matters stand, none of this matters to Israel, because Israel is currently a racist colonial State occupying someone else’s land.
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.
This terrorism – which saw occupying British soldiers murdered by Jewish insurgents, is premised upon ‘Zionism’ or rightwing Jewish racism. Like any racism, it demeans and dehumanises those it deems ‘inferior’ beings – and for the modern State of Israel – the victims are the Palestinians who due to British imperialism, have lost their ancient country to Jewish nationalism and colonisation.
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.
