Karl Marx (1818-1883)

Karl Marx (1818-1883) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In Woolwich Prison in London the man called Adebolajo who beheaded the English soldier Rigby had 2 of his teeth knocked out.

Would you not think that this is a total non event. But in Sharia pliant and ultra cautious Britain it is not a non event, but a very big event indeed, and the Tory Government and its prison service follows the rule that suspension of the prison warders is in order while an investigation of the incident takes place.

The warders have said that they were restraining the killer of Rigby.

The question which asks is why was that not enough for Cameron, and if they were restraining this maniacal killer (rather proven don’t you think!) then why were the 5 wardens not rewarded immediately by say a grant each of 1000 pounds sterling for service rendered.

“No guts Cameron” a new name for this political whore right!

The same really with George Zimmerman. George was a guy who was performing the very useful service to society of Neighbourhood Watch. Martin who he happened to encounter in the course of his duties was not only a member of what Marx called the LUMPEN proletariat, and was such a drug user that the drugs he was using had altered seriously his mind in a very violent direction. In Martin the drugs altered his mind and it also had altered his BRAIN according to the autopsy. George Zimmerman had the bad luck to meet an explosive cocktail of lumpen proletariat and very dangerous and violence inducing drugs.


Instead the cronies of Obama (with Obama prompting and very directly involved) put poor George Zimmerman on trial.


Yes indeed are indeed Marxists but we are not doctrinaires and we can see what is happening in the world.

Help us to grow



The recent news on which has the US fingering Israel over the Israeli rightful bombing of Russian weapons in the hands of Assad (read also Hizbullah and Iran)…must be studied thoroughly

1. Israel must be defended right down the line in all such actions

2. Socialists, and here I mean the only true representatives of Trotskyism which is themarxistblog, will defend the right of Israel to blow to smidereens every weapon that is directed against Israel’

3. If is right and they very often are then Netanyahu has met Putin lately and has told him that Israel would defend itself with everything

Now this raises a very, very important issue for me as a Trotskyist.

Despite our differences with Netanyahu we do defend Netanyahu unconditionally against the threats of Putin, and we defend the right of Israel to take whatever actions are necesary to defend the Jews.

Who is Putin? First of all he has links to STALINISM and to the road of PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE WITH IMPERIALISM

Also, in this sense of Stalinism, Putin and his Stalinist history is linked also with Antisemitism. In the period of 1926 to 27 Stalin used Antisemitism rather furtively in the fight to defeat the LEFT OPPOSITION to the growing Stalinisation in Russia. Later during the Moscow Trials Stalin was more open in his use of Antisemitism against his opponents.

So our defence (as a socialist movement) is UNCONDITIONAL of Netanyahu against Putin.

There are times also when we will defend Putin against US and British Imperialism such as his defence against the US war criminals to extract Ed Snowden from Moscow. In that situation we would defend Putin unconditionally against the US persecution of Snowden, who should in fact be given a medal by all freedom lovers, something indeed which Robert Spencer of Jihadwatch supports, a big and principled move by Spencer.

This time, too, after a few days’ pause, Washington again broke the story.  This step coincided with US President Barack Obama’s early Saturday phone call to Saudi King Abdullah to discuss the Syrian crisis. They may have discussed a potential Russian or Syrian reprisal for the Israeli air strike.

In their rough, acerbic encounter at the Black Sea resort of Sochi on May 14, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu warned President Vladimir Putin that if Russia sends advanced weaponry to Syria, such as S-300 anti-aircraft missiles or sophisticated radar for upgrading the Yakhont missiles, Israel would destroy them. Putin retorted that if Israel did this, Moscow would hit back.

In other words the situation is very serious and every person connected has to state their position.

Over the issue of our unconditional defence of Netanyahu against Putin then we make our position most clearly.

We defend Netanuahu against Putin in this situation as stated by unconditionally



Yesterday I rang the radio station Talk Radio Europe as it was live on air. It was 5past8 and it had begun transmission for the day. The Egyptian Revolution was in the air all over the world. But not in the studios of Talk Radio Europe. I asked Hannah Murray the presenter and Rob Humphries (son of BBC John Humphries) were they ignoring the Revolutionary Events in Egypt. They said they were ignoring it. Hannah Murray explained on air that the reason they were ignoring it was because her programme was “Entertainment”. Does this not sum up where we are at with the Media and with the discussion of what is happening in this sad and truly dangerous world. If you are an intelligent person male of female why listen to Talk Radio Europe? Why would you listen to the likes of Murray?


Themarxistblog makes these points about the revolutionary events in Egypt over the past few days. We will cover these issues:


  1. Obama promotes the Muslim Brotherhood
  2. What Hosni Mubarak represented in relation to the Muslim Brotherhood
  3. The role of Obama in the overthrow of Mubarak and thereby the promotion of the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt
  4. The trap of parliamentary democracy
  5. The connection with Iran, Antisemitism and the Nuclear Bomb aimed at murdering all Jews
  6. The grave weakness and mistake of Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller in relation to these events in Egypt
  7. The reactionary use of the word “left” to describe groups like the wsws, SWP, Stalinist Communist Parties etc. since a better word is simply “groups claiming to be left but are in reality pro-fascist Islam”, Ken Livingstone also comes to mind
  8. The power of the Revolution among workers, youth and young women
  9. Build themarxistblog as the Trotskyist Alternative


No 1…Obama


It was Obama who set this in motion in a big way. But a word first about Clinton aiding the Fascist Islam in Bosnia, and Bush removing the secular Saddam Hussein in Iraq thus greatly strengthening the Iranian Mullah Fascists. But Obama was qualitatively worse even. Obama travelled to Cairo University the very centre of Sunni Islam in June 2009, and insisted that the BANNED Muslim Brotherhood attend with all rights. Obama was the Muslim Brotherhood man. Obama was the Morsi sponsor. No doubt! The youth and women of Egypt know it now!


No 2…Mubarak and Nasser

Mubarak stood in the same tradition as Nasser, both Army. OK they were a dictatorship but also a dictatorship aimed against Fundamentalist Islam. In that aspect of their politics despite being dictators THEY HAD TO BE DEFENDED AND SUPPORTED BY SOCIALISTS. Nasser tried to talk to Qutb, realised eventually after much discussion and cups of teas that he was really talking to Allah, and bravely executed Qutb the Fascist Ideologue.


No. 3 The dominant role of the US in field of utter reaction

These revolutionary events in Egypt come exactly at the same time as a plane carrying the PRESIDENT of Bolivia is turned back from flying over France and Spain. Why? Because the French and Spanish are now the slaves of the US Empire in their hateful and ruthless pursuit of freedom fighter American youth (only 29) Ed Snowden.

These events in Egypt and the utter devotion and courage of young Egyptian youth and women have meant that the Saudis and Arab Emirates are breaking with Obama and Qatar.

The Israeli leaders meanwhile are weighed down by the ideology of Judaism, Francisco Gil White notwithstanding, and are unable to do a simple dammed thing in a situation where they should be acting along with the youth in Egypt.


No. 4

This is the big lesson of parliamentary democracy (farce of). The Muslim Brotherhood won a majority because of US Imperialist backing, and because the Egypt countryside is backward, therefore pro-Sharia

Having won their majority, just, the Muslim Brothers Fascists were steaming ahead towards Sharia Law, and enslavement.

Lesson do not listen to those like the BBC who spout reactionary rubbish about democracy.

The only real democracy in Egypt comes from stopping Sharia


No 5

All the time Iran is building its Nuclear Bombs. Do not listen to the Pro Islamist WSWS and SWP. They are Antisemites who are supporting the Iranian Antisemites, simple as that!


No. 6

Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer

On the surface they seem or appear to be strongly anti-Jihad. Beware! Be careful!


Precisely here Spencer says he does not agree with the suppression of the parties of the Muslim Brotherhood behind Morsi. Oh what a wimp is Spencer! What an utter fool is Spencer! And what a trap for Egyptian youth and women!


No Spencer you utter utter fool. This is not a jolly old battle of ideas that is going on. This is a war a physical war.


In total opposition to Spencer themarxistblog says that it is vitally necessary to throw into prison all of the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood, and in America a major campaign be launched for the IMPEACHMENT and imprisonment of Obama for aiding these Fascists, who can cause  the murder of the flower of Egyptian youth and women.


I wish the army would do exactly that. Will they? That is doubtful but thus necessitating a leadership to be built urgently that will do just that.


No. 7…a Mighty blow to pro-Fascist Islam! A mighty blow to Obama and Cameron!

In short the world has had a fantastic and important lesson in Islam. This is a Fascist ideology which Imperialism in its death agony uses. It uses soft talk and soapy words to win an election just as the Hitlerian Nazis, when they win the election they move to dictatorship. The women and youth of Egypt has stopped them and Obama and Cameron temporarily through the most stirring events of all our lives. But listen if you dare my dear Egyptian friends to the liberal crap of Robert Spencer and you will be in the same situation again. Do not listen to Spencer. Arrest the Muslim Brotherhood leaders, throw them in jail and throw away the key. No discussion with Fascists my dear Egyptian friends. No discussion got that!!!


And No. 8

The power of the Revolution and to build themarxistblog

Do not ever be dismayed about our smallness. We face fierce enemies in the capitalists. But we stand on principle and we are the only true representatives of Trotsky in today´s world..


The anti-Marxist and anti-Trotskyist group called is telling its readers lies about what is happening in Egypt.

The lies are contained in the following paragraphs which we on themarxistblog cull from their very latest article


For its part, the US-funded Egyptian military does not yet feel itself strong enough to directly suppress the protests. It therefore prefers to play the role of a kingmaker and arbiter, working out its strategy in close coordination with the US. On Monday General Martin Dempsey, the Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, reportedly spoke to his Egyptian counterpart, General Sedki Sobhi.

The very same day, the Egyptian Armed Forces issued a statement giving the political parties a 48-hour ultimatum “as a last chance to bear the historical burden that the nation is currently facing,” to “reconcile and end the current crisis.”

The all-party coalition envisioned by the military—bringing together the MB, the main liberal parties, former Mubarak officials and possibly some minor pseudo-left groups as a fig-leaf—would serve to delegitimize protests and give the military time to prepare a more violent crackdown.

These aims are shared by Washington. US imperialism is frightened by the prospect that the Egyptian working class will emerge in an open confrontation with the weakened Egyptian state, threatening to undermine the entire imperialist set-up of the Middle East—in which Egypt, with its deep ties to the US and to Israel, plays a crucial role.


Titled…The Egyptian Revolution and the crisis of revolutionary leadership

Perspectives, 2 July 2013

Now consider the contrast when you read what Pamela Geller who does not claim to be a socialist, or Marxist, or anything except freedom fighter,  wrote about this revolutionary situation in Egypt yesterday


And still the Muslim Brotherhood stooge in the White House plants his foot next to Morsi’s on the neck of the Egyptian people.

Obama cited Morsi ‘s 13 million votes for his unqualified support of these vicious thugs. But now a grass-roots opposition group called “Tamarod” – or “Rebel” — claims to have 22 million signatures on a petition demanding that Morsi step down  and allow new elections. 

Apparently, President Obama is unmoved. “The best President Obama could muster Monday was a tepid call for ‘restraint.'” There was no statement of support for the protesters, but Obama did  make a point of saying that Morsi had been democratically elected. “There’s  more work to be done to create the conditions in which everybody feels  that their voices are heard, and that the government is responsive and  truly representative,” he said.

The President of the United States has always been a champion of freedom; we must navigate through uncharted waters when the current President of the United States is an enemy of freedom.



There are many, that is more than one single lie in the first quote above by wsws.

But this one is key. When Dempsey rang Sobhi it was not to instruct Sobhi and the Egyptian Military TO DO ANYTHING, but it was to get Sobhi to draw back, to trim his sails.


Somehow in the most pernicious way the wsws has managed to turn everything on its head.

Obama is not opposed to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Obama is on the side of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Obama went to Egypt in June 2009 as his very first trip abroad after being elected.

There Obama insisted on The Muslim Brotherhood attending his conference in Cairo University, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS A MOVEMENT BANNED BY MUBARAK.

That was the open door being provided by Obama to The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.

Islam is a basket case and can solve nothing. It just becomes the Fascist Movement which sticks the crisis of capitalism onto the masses.

In the above extract from the wsws article we hear them saying about the army:

QUOTE…It therefore prefers to play the role of a kingmaker and arbiter, working out its strategy in close coordination with the US

The feeling you get from this is that the army is the danger, that the army is being backed by the US.

In fact it is the Fascist Muslim Brotherhood of Morsi which is the danger and it is the Fascists behind Morsi who were and are backed by Obama.

Thus Dempsey is not behind the Egyptian Army at all. Dempsey is behind Morsi and is telling the Egyptian Military to do nothing AGAINST the Muslim Brotherhood.

Dempsey is telling this Egyptian General

Lay off the Muslim Brotherhood. Work to defuse the situation. Help the Muslim Brotherhood to escape from the anger of the masses


As we keep repeating the US Imperialism and all the other Imperialisms in the world are in league with the Muslim Brotherhood.

The same is happening in England and London, where on Saturday the British State and London police arrest Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll of the EDL, in order to protect the Sharia Law set-up in Tower Hamlets

Once again

More on this as we go forward but themarxistblog is sure that the wsws, swp, workers liberty are not Marxist, not even left, groups at all.

They are Antisemitic (hate Israel) facilitators of Islam and Sharia.


The banning of Pamela Geller and Robert Spencer, editors of Atlas Shrugs and Jihadwatch respectively, is a major warning to all of us, especially to workers and youth, above all to all Jews no matter where they live in the world, that dictatorship is very close. The right to free speech in today´s world is sacrosanct. This is exactly the same issue as the right of Ed Snowden to spill the beans on the massive spying by the American and British state machine on all of our phone calls. Pamela and Robert must be defended and so must Ed Snowden. It is totally an issue of our free speech and our rights to knowledge.


These two outstanding fighters against Sharia Law which indeed is based on Islam should be given a medal for their struggles for freedom. Instead the British state of the Tories and Labour has banned them.


Meanwhile the other main party the Liberal Democrats has already had in its ranks among the worst Antisemites on the planet.


The reason that Pamela and Robert should be speaking in Britain to British ordinary people, and join hands proudly with the English Defence League,  is that they have studied Islam and Sharia Law. The people of Britain truly need this knowledge now.


This is especially the case after young Lee Risby was butchered by two Muslims quoting the Koran on the streets of London just a month ago.


But Mrs May bans these two fighters against just that ideology that mowed down the young soldier, then started to butcher him. No doubt about it, she is joining in with the butchery.


Why Mrs May and Mr Cameron? What is the message you are giving the British people?




What also is the position of the Irish state on this issue? Supporters of freedom in Ireland should immediately issue an invitation to Pamela and Robert to attend an arranged and planned meeting in Dublin to fight against Sharia and Islam. This will immediately test the Irish Government and whether Ireland is worthy to have US American tourists visit Ireland under any pretext.


Barrie Nathan on Talk Radio Europe yesterday argued that there is nothing to worry about in the Prism spying programme.


The discussion took place over 2 hours yesterday on the portal Talk Radio Europe radio station.


The callers in were a cross section of British people and they were divided over the issue. One a supporter of Portsmouth Football Team argued that the people need this type of surveillance, and more, and the more spying on us according to this “Gary” the better.

(But when people like Gary call for more and more state spying on the population and states that he does not mind because “he has nothing to hide” then he forgets that the jews in 1930s Europe were the most law abiding people on earth, but that did them no good against the Nazis.

It is exactly the same here. We do not know in politics how things are going to develop and whether all of our democratic rights will be taken away by a dictatorship.

Already the two completely law abiding citizens of America, Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, have been banned by the British Foreign Secretary from attending a meeting in Woolwich in two weeks time, and the reason for this is political, that they are opposed to the method and practice of Islam as contained in the Koran.

Thus gone, at the stroke of a pen, is the right to free speech, the pen wielded by the present elected government of Britain.)


Barrie Nathan also called Snowden a traitor. Nathan was the very centre and pivot of the discussion.


Why is what Barrie Nathan claims important?


The most important reason is that Nathan is Jewish and well known as Jewish, so he is linking this horrific spying to Jewish people. Is that not grand!!! The people who suffered most of all because of spying persecution by the Nazis namely the Jews here argues for it. Or at least Nathan is.


Before the Nazis rounded up the Jews and put them in holding centres prior to deportation to the death camps there was massive espionage on the Jews so that when the time came for them to be rounded up they were already identified precisely.


Barrie Nathan is not either intelligent or well read, especially about what is happening in current affairs. The big question about this massive spying by Obama and Cameron is that it is directed not at all against Islamic terrorists, but against ordinary people. Why do I say this?


I will limit myself to three things


  1. The US army major called Hasan who murdered his colleagues
  2. The Boston bombings
  3. The beheading in broad daylight of young Lee Risby

In the case of the major who murdered his colleagues in the American Army (mowed down 13 US soldiers while screaming allahu akbar on the Fort Hood military base in Texas in November 2009.)


Obama insisted that this not be called a Jihadist murder, but a “work-place murder”. Obama and Mrs Hilary Clinton have used this technique of whitewashing Islam from day one


In the case of the Boston murderers (the two Tsarnaev brothers) and maimers of good Americans the same pattern emerges… The information about these threats to life was already in the hands of the Obama regime. It did not come from the snooping. It came from two sources. First of all the Russian Government WARNED the US that they were Jihadists. Then the  Saudis did exactly the same BY LETTER. (Yes the Saudis do worry about Jihadists) But the US Government would not listen, would not hear of the threat from Jihad


Nip over the pond and look at the Woolwich killers. Here a soldier based at the nearby Woolwich barracks was beheaded by two machete-wielding assailants. Again they were so well known to the British that the British police actually had these Jihadists in their very hands and they were already spouting their hatred and plans to kill in the mosque, but that is exactly where the police in Britain are not allowed to spy inside. We do also know about Ken Livingstone and his support for Jihad in the form of support for Jihadist Qaradawi. Then Boris Johnson stopped any investigation of Islam and Jihad in its tracks. Cameron did the exact same.


All this information about these Jihadist murders was on the record, there to be acted upon.


It was not acted upon. Instead we are all investigated through spying techniques.


Keep in mind in all of this that although it is new technology there is nothing different to the Chile Coup, or the Nazi Holocaust. Before they acted they had the names and addresses.


They are covering for the Jihadists. The state covers for Islam which is a deadly and bloodthirsty ideology.


But as never before in human history…They are spying on us!


Those are the issues that Barrie Nathan did not raise in the Talk Radio Europe discussion. A copy of this article will be forwarded to Barrie Nathan. We will print his reply to us.


In the conflict’s early months it appeared that Gaddafi’s government – with its greater firepower – would be victorious





NATO intervention: March–August 2011 (as told by Wikipedia)

QUOTE…”A week after the implementation of the no-fly zone, NATO announced that it would enforce it.[290] On 30 April a NATO airstrike killed Gaddafi’s sixth son and three of his grandsons in Tripoli, though Gaddafi and his wife were unharmed. Western officials remained divided over whether Gaddafi was a legitimate military target under the Security Council resolution. U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said that NATO was “not targeting Gaddafi specifically” but that his command-and-control facilities were legitimate targets—including a facility inside his sprawling Tripoli compound that was hit with airstrikes 25 April. However, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was captured on video calling for Gaddafi to be killed or captured and was later captured again on video celebrating the news of his death.[291]




pictures above…Need to emphasise this fact. Gadhafi was attacked by NATO, which is US and EU funded, when he had the Rebels at his mercy, and was moving on Ben Ghazi city. Above pictures is outcome of US and UK intervention.


The role of the two countries China and Russia in all of that is particularly important to understand. They went along with the “No Fly Zone” in the United Nations Security Council. Once they did this they opened the door to the war on Gadhafi, the murder of Gadhafi and all that has followed, which includes the murders of thousands of Black African workers who were in towns dotted along the Northern Coastline of Libya, yet China pretends to be the friend of Black Africa.


Putin and Russia must have put some faith in countries like the US and Britain, thinking or most likely hoping against hope that their intentions were honourable.


In that sense Russia was hoodwinked by these major powers, and this goes a long way to explain how Russia has emerged as the main opposer of the Jihadist crooks opposing Assad. Basically I think Putin saw what happened to Gadhafi, and learned very quickly that the Empire was particularly ruthless, a very cruel Empire, and that indeed Russia had to look after its own interests.


As I see it this extends on a very wide swathe of international political life and events.


This also moves into a very firm and righteous Russian nationhood feeling, which is expressed int he following:



On February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia:

      “In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws.  If they prefer Sharia Law, then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.  Russia does not need minorities.  Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’.  We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of most minorities.

When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the national interest first

    observing that the minorities are not Russians.
The representatives in the Duma gave Putin a five minute standing ovation.
Notice that he considers that America et al is “committing suicide”
Yes he is right but this has to be viewed against the economic crisis worldwide!
Right across the board Putin has hardened his position towards what is rightly called “The Empire” with the US at its centre, Obama now a comical puppet.
Obama as a “puppet”, this view of Obama does not reach Europe as a whole, but more and more Israel sympathetic websites such as Breitbart, Atlas Shrugs or Jihadwatch are sure that Obama is a puppet, with the Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) being the puppet masters. This is a big development in Jewish consciousness which the Left Antisemites as in Indymedia, Counterpunch, fear greatly.
This also explains how somebody who has a great deal to fear (such as Edward Snowden) from the Empire is well advised to remain inside of Russia. Cuba may fall. Venezuela may fall. Equador may fall.
But the world is gearing up for very serious events which could indeed involve The Empire launching Nuclear War against Russia. But first it must try to weaken it…somehow!
