Our Perspective on the Situation in Palestine
In early October, the new struggle of the Palestinian people against aggression and colonization suddenly began. The Palestinian people and the armed organizations of various factions, who are proficient in guerrilla warfare, made use of their intelligence advantage to strike the Zionist government and the US imperialists, which had comprehensive superiority in weapons and technology, by surprise. What a textbook victory of “you fight in your way and we fight in ours”!
According to information from various Palestinian factions, the participants in the war including the left wing represented by the PFLP and DFLP and the right wing represented by Hamas, PIJ and Lions’ Den. This war has received broad participation from the Palestinian people, has achieved unity on the basis of prior meetings and has established a united front for the oppressed nation. The nature of this war is primarily the war against aggression by an oppressed nation, whose main current enemies are Zionism and US imperialism, and we support the struggle of the various Palestinian factions against them. There is only one way to achieve comprehensive victory - the establishment of proletarian vanguard guided by Marxism-Leninism-Maoism, the establishment of people’s army and the extension of the Protracted People’s War. We call on our readers not to believe the false propaganda of the NATO-Israeli media and to rely on the news and statements of the various Palestinian factions.
Presently, the most influential member of this national united front is Hamas, which has played a certain positive role in combating the Zionist genocidal policy and fighting for Palestinian national independence, and it’s an important force leading the Palestinian people to fight against Zionism. We oppose the bizarre arguments of some Chinese leftists - dogmatically applying the analysis methods of Chinese society to Palestinian society, without analyzing the social nature and primary contradictions of Palestine; using the excuse that Hamas has various problems, and opposed and belittled it when various Palestinian factions united; regarding Hamas and the pseudo-state of Israel as the same nature. Such bizarre arguments are nothing short of splitting the anti-aggression and anti-colonial front, caters to the propaganda of the imperialist media and denying the justice of the Palestinian national liberation struggle.
However, it’s also wrong to fail to make a class analysis on Hamas and to point out that it is politically backward and reactionary and thus the proletariat should compete with it for leadership, just as it’s wrong to praise Chiang Kai-shek unconditionally and obey him in all matters during the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression. Some of the ways and means adopted by Hamas in the struggle were too arbitrary, attacking the Jewish working people, foreign workers and the Zionist government as one, unnecessarily expands the scope of the attack, which is not conducive to dividing and disintegrating Israel from within, and is not conducive to the unity of the progressive elements among the Jews. On the contrary, these ways and means will force some Israeli people to turn to the Zionist government and harm the overall interests of the Palestinian national liberation struggle. This great struggle against aggression and colonization should never be turned into a racial or religious vendetta.
The enemies of the Palestinian people are not only the Zionists, but also the Palestinian Authority. After the massacre at al-Ahli Arab Hospital, Palestinian Authority security forces frantically suppressed people’s protests in the West Bank, causing a large number of deaths and injuries. The Fatah leadership, headed by Abbas (the Palestine’s Wang Ching-wei), who is in power in the Palestinian Authority, is full of weak and compromised tendencies - pragmatism, parliamentarism, conciliationism. It is these tendencies that have enabled the Zionists to encroach step by step, indirectly causing the economic collapse, the decline of people’s livelihood, and the overall regression of production relations in Gaza; it is these tendencies that have caused the Palestinian people to lose trust in the former Fatah regime and turn to right-wing organizations; it is these tendencies that are most detrimental to the liberation of the Palestinian people by practicing capitulationism in the name of conciliationism. The radical elements of Fatah should completely break away from it, so as not to become national sinners of Palestine.
In particular, we must expose the despicable acts of modern revisionism on the Palestine-Israel issue.
On the day of the war, the traitor Prachanda tweeted his condemnation of the Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, characterizing it as a “terrorist attack”. It’s not hard to understand - he is like an old eunuch in the Forbidden City, always reading his master’s mind - both the fascist Bharatiya Janata Party and the fascist Zionists is slaughtering Muslims crazily, and Prachanda followed his Indian masters to the side of the Zionists.
Since the restoration of capitalism in China, the Chinese revisionists has stopped military assistance to the Palestine Liberation Organization, and has even established diplomatic relations with the pseudo-state of Israel, shamelessly betraying the Palestinian people. Since the beginning of this century, the Chinese imperialism has repeatedly “mediated” between Palestine and Israel. In the face of the Operation Al-Aqsa Flood, the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi recently declared that “Israel has the right to establish a state”, “condemns violations of international law”, “demand a ceasefire, an end to violence”, and “solution to the Palestinian question lies in resuming genuine peace talks as soon as possible” - do you feel familiar with these? These are still the same reactionary logic of Soviet social imperialism, which unilaterally emphasized “peaceful coexistence and development above all else”, and liquidated the revolutionary struggle of the oppressed nations!
All these corresponds to a sentence of the “Apologists Of Neo-Colonialism” - “The modern revisionists in fact side with the imperialists and colonialists and repudiate and oppose the national liberation movement in every possible way.”
Why did the Chinese imperialism do this? We still have to look at this issue back to the nature of the regime. In response to the new conflicts, Wang Wenbin, spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of China, boasted shamelessly, “China has no selfish interests on the Palestinian question.” The Chinese imperialist government serves the interests of the Chinese bourgeoisie to develop the capitalist economy and promote imperialist economic strategies such as the BRI. They don’t want the Eurasian countries along the Belt and Road to be thrown into turmoil, affecting their investment prospects there. This is their selfish interests! This means that whenever the Palestinian people launch a struggle, they must oppose the war of national liberation under the guise of preserving peace, and become de facto counter-revolutionaries. The various Palestinian factions should recognize the face of Chinese imperialism - “living the life of a whore and expecting a monument to its chastity”.
Down with Zionism, and the US imperialism get out of Palestine!
Down with conciliationism, rolitical power grows out of the barrel of a gun!
The Palestinian people will win!
