In an unpleasant and disquieting way what is happening to Gaza reminds me of what happened in Warsaw in World War 2. Only now its in reverse. The Jewish bourgeois state appears bent on the annihilation of the Palestinians, whereas in Warsaw, imprisoned in the ghetto by the Nazis, and with the connivance of the USSR who stood by and watched, it was the Jews themselves and other undesirables who were the innocent victims put to the torch.
This is not to justify Hamas, which bourgeois nationalist grouping lacks the innocence of all those killed in the ghetto in Warsaw. For Hamas seem to revel too in all the destruction of which they are a part and a key player. As if driving their loathed and hated Jewish enemy to the crazed extreme of actually destroying Gaza completely can somehow justify all the hatred and loathing they Hamas feel towards the repulsive enemy who they waste no opportunity of taunting with their own missiles and threats. It's like David and Goliath writ large and gone horrifically demented. David's sling now contains deadly missiles courtesy of the West. The crazed Goliath tramples on the very people he claims to support, unable to get the better of David and unwilling to negotiate too. It's like there's a desire for a mass suicide with no other option.
Meanwhile, the UN and the media wring their hands and cry stop, but nobody wants to listen. The British foreign secretary hints that the Israeli government is losing support in the West. This is hardly surprising. Pictures on the tv news of the latest shelling of a Palestinian school under the auspices of the UN itself - a school about to be evacuated but which left it too late - show images of adults and children who survived the callous, cruel and carefully calculated bombardment, in conditions of terrified shock and emotional collapse; and of people driven to the very end of their endurance.
Is it possible that somebody somewhere, some demented faction of the bourgeoise, actually think and believe that children or any humans at all deserve this kind of brutality? That defense of territory, or property, or the national capitalism, is really worth all this killing and cruelty? It beggars belief! What is life under decomposing capitalism coming too? Is there no end to the madness?
And where is the working class who alone can end this mayhem? Please wake up soon, before it's too late. For that is the only positive thing to emerge from all this: that the bourgeoisie has no solutions to the crisis: and that the proletarian revolution is the only way out now from the awful abyss.
