An interesting article from John Rees on new SWP-breakaway site Counterfire looks at Israel’s growing attention towards effective pro-Palestinian solidarity in Britain.
As John points out:
The Jewish Chronicle even claims that activism in London is radicalising the struggle in Palestine itself: ‘It is not the Palestinians who are influencing London; it is London that is influencing the Palestinians. At present, only a few key Palestinian individuals or organisations play an active role in the Red-Green Alliance, but radical left-wing ideology is slowly infiltrating and radicalising Palestinian discourse in the West Bank.’
Utter rubbish from the Israelis of course – the Palestinians do not need paternal guidance from the British on building their resistance – but we’re honoured they take us all so seriously. Shows we must be doing something right!
