1. These elections are the invitation we were waiting for the funeral of the two states solution.
These latest Zionist untruths are a backhanded compliment to Socialist Alternative because fake leftists and Labor apparatchiks like Peter Baldwin know in the long run such revolutionary groups are attracting young idealists who want to change the world and who see through the lies of Zionism. This is very different to the Labor Party which attracts at best a few young careerists and hacks or turns the few idealists the Party does attract into careerists and hacks in a short period of time. Being rabidly pro-Zionist is almost a right of passage to greater things in the ALP.
As Omar Hassan in an article in Red Flag called Zionist students use lies, abuse to silence Palestinian solidarity activists wrote in August 2014:
There is evidence to indicate that this behaviour is a conscious strategy to undermine [Palestinian] solidarity activism on campuses.
Exactly, and the lie that Socialist Alternative organised this 11 March Sydney University ‘riot’, ‘violent protest’, in other words peaceful demonstration by the protestors, is just another untruth for that purpose.
And I shall wear my scarf again The wine glass, shattered, stands, broken, in my lonely hand A cry for people Without land No one cares About Palestine No one cares He sips his wine Long gone, and beyond Vision early, taken late Who can wait? Not Gazans, at their gate The wall of hate […]
In defence of free speech; in defence of the Socialist Alternative club at Monash University against its banning by Zionists
If you support Palestine, and if you support free speech, I call on you to support Socialist Alternative at Monash University and across Australia in defence of Palestine, in opposition to Pyne’s higher education armaggedon and to join the fight against political repression.
Australian supporters of Israel have reacted to the growing hostility to the Gaza war with a hysterical campaign of slander and suppression against anyone who dares to criticise Israel write Corey Oakley and Daniel Taylor in Red Flag. (The link may not work all the time because pro-Israeli forces have been attacking and shutting down the Red Flag site for the last 3 weeks. The Zionists do not want the truth about Israel’s crimes revealed.)
Education Minister Christopher Pyne labels Socialist Alternative, with no evidence whatsoever, anti-Semitic. This calumny is the last refugee of Zionist scoundrels who cannot rebut the evidence of Israel’s war crimes in Gaza. In fact recent analysis shows that there has not been a global increase in anti-Semitism but rather in anti-Israeli sentiment, based on the reality of the crimes Israel is committing in Gaza. To conflate the two is a crude attempt by Zionists to bury the crimes of Israel alongside the bodies of the hundreds of murdered children in Gaza.
Israel did not win. The Palestinian Authority did not win. Hamas did. Palestine did. Gaza’s people did.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine salutes the Black struggle in the US: The empire will fall from within
In light of the police murder of the martyr Michael Brown and the ongoing struggle in Ferguson, Missouri, in the United States, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine salutes and stands firmly with the ongoing struggle of Black people and all oppressed communities in the United States.
Comrade Khaled Barakat said in an interview with the PFLP media outlets that “Police brutality, oppression and murder against Black people in the U.S., and against Latinos, Arabs and Muslims, people of color and poor people, has never been merely ‘mistakes’ or ‘violations of individual rights’ but rather are part and parcel of an integral and systematic racism that reflects the nature of the political system in the U.S.”
With a Black Power fist in the air, we salute the people of Ferguson and join in your demands for justice.
Israel’s new onslaught on Gaza: an urgent challenge to build the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement
Sherry Wolf, a longtime activist for Palestinian freedom and former press officer for the Russell Tribunal on Palestine in 2012, in Socialist Worker US looks at the rise of the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israeli apartheid–and the next steps for the struggle in the face of Israel’s new onslaught on Gaza. Although written for a US audience Sherry’s arguments apply in Australia and elsewhere. Let’s build BDS across the globe to isolate the brutal apartheid state of Israel.
