The silence about the massacres in Gaza from the far left is quite deafening. The left is typicaly quiet or makes excuses for any abnormal Arab behavior. Typical of this insantity is Robert Fisk who proclaims the Jenin fight a massacre and accused Israel of using low powered atomic weapons in Lebanon. This accusation has been debunked by observers not prone to be favorable to Israel.
Hamas seems to be practicing classic Communism in the Trotskyite mode. Lets see they advocate perpetual revolution. They have executed political rivals in front of their families. They have made baseless alegations that these rivals were Israeli colaberators. They practice senseless violence with no purpose whatsoever. If they ditch the Koran, become rampantly corrupt, espouse Mickey Mouse history and boring idiotic politcal rhetoric they could become Trotskyites.
I will perform a service for Ren and Troutsky and write the new party line from a classic past lie. The boys of Hammas are premature or developing Trotskyites. This dates back to the Spanish Civil War where Commies glossed over their desire to create a puppet state as premature anti-fascism. I do want to point out that advocacy of Mussolini's policies would be a dramatic form of self improvement for Trotskyites.
The idiocy of Trotskyism is that it perpetuates a myth that Trotskyism is divorced from the sins of Stalinism. There were plenty of crimes commited by the fool before he lost a power struggle just like Roehm. The tactic of Trotskyism is revolutionary defeatism at home or side with whatever enemies of the US are available. Classic Communism was anti-zionist because it was a political rival amongst opressed Russian Jews. This anti-semitism increased when it became apparent that Israel was not going to be a Soviet satelite. Then commies started killing Jews on phantom Zionist-Titoist and perhaps latoyaist plots against Stalin.
The notion of endless revolution and continued praise for repressive police states like Cuba and Uncle Hugo's mess is par for the course.
