There is only one conclusion possible: the war in Gaza is a war between two imperialist states.

      No, you don’t understand, imperialism is when you fight people, and the Gazans are fighting fascists, meaning they are imperialist.

      In contrast to the comrade, we are convinced that Gaza is not only a national entity but that the regime in Gaza has also several functions of a bourgeois state: it collects taxes and has an army, a juridical apparatus, detention facilities, intelligence and police personal, etc. It is the Hamas de-facto administration which exercises these state functions and has, since 2005, under the direction of a highly centralised command centre, been able to fire thousands rockets into Israeli territory. There is only one conclusion possible: the war in Gaza is a war between two imperialist states.

      Imperialism is when nations. Hamas collects taxes ergo its a nation ipso facto its imperialist. Checkmate.

    But the article is right when it says that the slogan “Palestine will be free, from the river to the sea” can only signify the ethnic cleansing of the Jewish population in the region between the Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea, “a Nakba in reverse”.

    I remember back in the day when I thought the funny jokes and memes about leftcoms not wanting to get out of their chairs while they oppose praxis was just an exaggeration, but throughout the years these fuckers have really shown it to be very much true.

    The ICC reply (though I like how they do try to reply genuinely and honestly) boils down to “but the palestinian government is/would be capitalist too, so…”

    This is the very bad form of class reductionism, the idea that oppression/genocide/etc doesn’t matter and isn’t imperialism because it’s not fundamentally along class lines. haram

    Sure thing, ICC, but I don’t think the people of Palestine are in any position to do any revolutions while under the iron thumb of the US and Israel. Nor do I think many people will view communist organisations positively if they sit by, ambivalent about genocide.
