    The leader of Israeli terrorist group, Menachem Begin, later became Israels Prime minister.
    Just tweeted that maybe Hamas are doing the same, it worked fine (terrorism that is) for Zionists.

    Before the creation of the state of Israel, he was the leader of the Zionist militant group Irgun, the Revisionist breakaway from the larger Jewish paramilitary organization Haganah. He proclaimed a revolt, on 1 February 1944, against the British mandatory government, which was opposed by the Jewish Agency. As head of the Irgun, he targeted the British in Palestine.[3] Later, the Irgun fought the Arabs during the 1947–48 Civil War in Mandatory Palestine and, as its chief, Begin was described by the British government as the “leader of the notorious terrorist organisation”.

    That passage from Antonio Domene about “Knowing the Zionists’ greed for power and money” seems rather anti-semitic. Why single out the Jewish nationalists (Zionists) for this when it applies to all capitalist states? It sounds as if he means “knowing the Jews’ greed for power and money”. Which is definitely anti-semitic.

    Definitely not acceptable language here. But it does put the party case succinctly, that wars (obviously not a full on all out war in this instant) are fought over natural resources, trade routes including water tributaries, land and people. Even if the author would probably not call himself ‘class conscious’? This is the first time l have read about what appears to be a sizable potental economic opportunities in the region.

    X twitter someone has made a poll. Who should Socialists support? Israel or Palestine. Can’t find the poll now?

    I tweeted this: Neither. Workers have no country. This is a basic tenent of Marxism.

    Just as the Party opposition to the State of Israel, we oppose the creation of a Palestinian state. Only Socialism,a Stateless, moneyless, production to meet needs, with free access to goods and services is in the interests of the working class.

    As I have mentionedLiverpool. Their former captain Jordan Henderson who left for Saudi club Al-Ettifaq FC.
    Henderson was prominent
    during the FA, it’s kicked homophobia
    out campaign. Handing out rainbow
    laces to teammates.
    He has now signed for £700,000 a week, a 3 year contract, Liverpool FC received £12m from the deal.
    Does he have a problem going to play in the country where its human rights abuses are in question?
    In fact, he says he is hurt by the criticism?
    However, criticism is that
    Saudi has strict rules on homosexuality, it has the death penalty for homosexuality.
    In fact, Henderson he is hurt by the criticism?

    I don’t mean to be mean to Geordies, but until they develop thumbs and learn human speech it’s just too easy.

    The same with scousers.
    Whingeing about Real Madrid? Offended by everything ashamed of nothing.

    Liverpool is one of the deprived areas in the county. Liverpool fans cheering on £100m Núñez* and £400,000 a week Salah. You can’t make it up.

    The bloody geordie at work, sounds more like a sp@rs fan. He hates Arsenal? When l slate tiny tots (sp@rs) he tells me that I don’t hear him go on about Sunderland? Recently a new guy started working for the company, he’s from Sunderland,the geordie is always refers to him. He calls him “Mackem,” not obsessed then.
    Just to add, this issue about football club ownership isn’t new.
    Chelsea fans didn’t care that a Russian billionaire Romam Abramovich owned the club. Manchester City fans don’t care either, they have Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, a key figure in Abu Dhabi, it’s a Country which is nothing more than a thiefdom.

    @chelmsford

    It was a few weeks ago. Police have the IMIE number, they normally do an IMIE check, if phones (any make), gets handled in, or someone is arrested. The phone is now blacklisted, which means the iPhone actually stops sending our its location?

    Back to my original point being, I would have told these people outside the store, that I would have not known about this, were it not for my iPhone or my other Apple devices.
    We, members, will do our best to attend demonstration, picket lines, and rallies- for example, the annual Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Festival.
    Interesting that you say: ….Now the SPGB join in. Is there no party discipline?
    Not sure if it’s true or relevant here. Maybe you should take it up with the General Secretary who will pass it on to the Executive Committee?


    @Lizzie45

    My bad. Should have said Uyghurs, couldn’t be bothered to Google it. As with I stand corrected much as above, Foxconn, ‘some’, as yet that could mean anything, it doesn’t mean much at the moment.

    Long time, been a bit busy. Someone took my iPhone. Oh well.
    I was at Apples Regent street store, off topic, demonstrating outside, against Chinese government over muslin genocide? I was about to say Foxcom are moving production to India? They’d gone.

    I see Just Stop Oil founder has given* Labour £1.5m

    Seen little if anything about who owns them, Pwel fans happy that the owner is spending, winning 🏆 even domestic cups that their fans ridicule (the worthless cup) others for winning. Of course no evidence or controversy that the owner is taking money out of the club as do the Glazers, who are accused of lining their own pockets.

    Pwel fans actually say they’re not English, they’re ‘scousers’??

    OMG! The unions are going to strike on the FA cup weekend and inconvenience traveler’s getting to work but their action will also affect Eurovision. Eurovision! I mean it’s the last straw. Diabolical unions, what an absolute disgrace.
    I’m so filled with indignation, that I will be writing to the Times.
