This article was published previously in www.kanaanonline.org and in my book “Debatable Issues 2020”. The reasons why I decided to re-publish it are:
a. Because many communist parties determined their position against the Russian Federation in its war of defense against Ukraine as a tool for the triad (US, EU, and Japan) as the leadership of the Counter-Revolution (CR). In fact, the CR launches several forms of wars against Russia and to a lesser extent against China;
b. Because some of those “communist” parties protest against my article: “Communist Boys of NATO are Building the “Wailing Wall” in Defense of Ukrainian Fascism!”, which was posted on 10 April 2022 in Kana’an, e-Bulletin, Volume XXII – Issue 6256.
I think that those parties reached that level of compromise because of several reasons:
1. Those parties are accustomed to being a tail for “a centre” and when their center, the USSR, collapsed, they can’t stand without another centre even when it is imperialism!
2. Many of those parties were deceived by the extreme propaganda of the Trots and most likely supported financially by the rich Trotskyites.
3. And many of them are financed by NGO’s, and accordingly they became NGOised.

Why Trots (Trotskyites) are Rich like Zionist Jews and ISIS?
Any time you hear the term Anti-Imperialism or a conference on anti-Imperialism, you must expect a Trot to be behind it! Trots (Trotskyite) still occupy this term despite the fact that many of their leaders are in the US neo-conservatism, marketing US destruction of states, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, and Syria. Moreover, Trots are really rich with much (money) liquidity, i.e. before the internet and Facebook transcends printed media materials, Trots in poor Egypt were
spending a lot of money on publications!
In every place on this globe, Trots are rich! Why and from where? The same is ISIS, which acquires huge amounts of money, tanks, cannons, ammunitions and logistics, from where?
It is strange as well that the Trots are allies with the Moslem Brothers, but at the same time they shout against the reactionary comprador regimes of the Gulf which are the ideological incubator and financer of Moslem fundamentalist terrorists.
In Egypt as well, Trots are the close allies with Moslem Bros, and support the same fundamentalist terrorists in Syria, Libya, and Yemen…etc.
It is difficult to understand how Trot thinks and behaves if you do not consider his relationship with Zionism and neo-conservatism. Most Trots, who deal with Arab and, for sure Palestinian affairs, have hatred for Arabs and Palestinians. They hide that through their pretense that Marx and they themselves are against nationalism as chauvinism, while Marx’s position is the reverse as it is clear in Marx’s own writings, at least in the Communist Manifesto. But, the truth is that they worry the fate of the Zionist Ashkenazi Regime (ZAR) -Israel.
Following the dismantling of the socialist camp, many communists, especially those related to the previous USSR, gave up and became either social democrats or even religious. A lot of Aram ex-Marxists are now in the service of the Saudi Regime!
Trots as rich and opposed to all Marxist currents, collude with neo-conservatism and jump to lead and even attract many renegades from the former Soviet current. Both are in harmony against Arab nationalism, either from Trots Zinoized position against Arab nationalism or from the weak theoretical understanding of Marx’s writings on nationalism in the case of the renegade Soviet followers. The extreme attitude of both currents is against the deep understanding of the national question which facilitates those current’s betrayal to the Arab nation.
It is a real irony that many Arab communists who theorize and argue against Arab nation and nationalism never differentiated between:
Comprador ruling classes’ pretense of nationalism, which is in fact “the ruling nationalism, the regimes” are practically against any form of Arab unity.
And real nationalism, the latent nationalism of the popular classes that believe in homeland, nation, unity, and socialism.
Those Arab communists recognize a “Jewish/Israeli nation” despite the fact that ZAR is a collected/recruited settler from nearly one hundred nations, i.e. like the United Nations, but do not recognize Arab nations.
Standing against Arab nationalism ends as support of Arab Iqlimi regimes. Those regimes strengthen their rules by nourishing sects, politicized Islam, lineages…etc, which finally ends in a war between Islamic sects.
I call that terrorist Politicized Islamic Forces (PIF), which fights Arab republics for the sake and on behalf of US imperialism, the “Obama/US third army”. The other two armies are the US army and that of ZAR. Those PIF are the most and closest allies with Trots Anti-imperialism!
My personal estimation and experience in my discussion with a lot of Trots and western leftists are that a lot of those Arab communists are timid to act as believers in nationalism dreaming for respect and recognition from white communists, Trots, and the western left in general.
Following Iraq’s liberation of Kuwait, (2 August 1990) as it was the 19th district of Iraq, and later the US and its ally’s invasion of Kuwait and Iraq 17th of January 1991, a lot of western “Marxists, leftists and Communists” and for sure Trots celebrated that imperialist invasion. It was really astonishing how all those western leftists were enthusiastic about supporting that invasion.
A group of leftists decided to publish a book on that invasion. I wrote an article for that edited book on that Gulf war, titled “The New International Order’ (pp 259-271). Based on my knowledge of attitudes and writings of a lot of western left, I described that left as the secret and illegal “offspring” of secretaries in bourgeois systems. Those offspring are hidden, but, when “parent” fall into crisis, they support him in the open.
A lot, nearly most Arab leftist intellectuals support that imperialist invasion which rescued the escaped monarchy and re-imposed the Subah family over Iraqi Kuwait.
The same collusion from the same left (Arab and western) has been repeated following the imperialist invasion of Libya in 2011 and currently against Syria.
Trots in all those imperialist invasions were in the lead in supporting those invasions.
Any reliable discussion on the Arab situation must consider:
· Arabs’ right of unity and socialism
· The liberation of Palestine
Any analyst who ignores or rejects those two important components is “sick” of Zionism even more than imperialism.
The most direct example of this sickness is the Lebanese Salah Jaber (Gilber Achcar), who is the top name of an Arab left’s conference in Beirut full of topics like Anti-Imperialism.
I hope that the participants are not of the same orientation, i.e. anti-Arab. In fact, it is scandalous that most of the Arab communists are talking, and lecturing while their homeland is under destruction! They never fight in defense of their Homeland, but they did not stop talking?
This Achcar is really strange. I remember a meeting with him in Paris 1995. We were discussing Trotskyism for continuous twelve hours and he never agreed that Trots did any theoretical or practical mistake all their life and history!
He wrote recently,
“While his views may have changed since, in the late winter of 2011 Achcar described the Libyan rebels as a progressive force. “What unites all the disparate forces (of the opposition to Gaddafi) is a rejection of the dictatorship and a longing for democracy and human
rights,” he said. (Achcar, March 19, 2011)
He wrote a lot in favor of the Turkish, Wahabi, and NATO war against Syria.
The same is the case of a smaller Trot, the Palestinian Salameh Kela, who pretends that what is going on in Syria is a “Proletariat Revolution”.
Another Trot, Muhamad Ja’far (using other nicknames, Samir al-Khalil, and Kana’an Makiyah) appeared at TV pegging G. W. Bush to invade his own country Iraq!
But the most strange and even silly is what has been written by the Russian economist Boris Kagarlitsky: “The Libyan revolution is the most closer/similar Arab revolution to Bolshevik revolution or especially the French revolution” (By Boris Kagarlitsky, translated from Russian by Referee Clarke November 28, 2011 – Links International Journal of Socialist Renewal).
Boris Kagarlitsky might be fed by writings of a Palestinian renegade intellectual Azmi Bishara who was a Zionist Knesset member and left to Qatar. Bishara who was a close ally to the Syrian regime and the Lebanese Hezbollah for twenty years changed dramatically following the
so-called Arab Spring and supported the invasions of Libya and Syria.
In fact, it is funny that I saw some lines written by Slavoj Zizek that Bishara is one of the best Arab philosophers! In fact, it is not strange from Zizek as a writer mixing Hegel with Marx and reproducing Lenin as idealist and materialist. When Bishara renegade from Marxism of the Soviet current, in a discussion between both of us, he declared himself Hegelian, but the Hegelian nationalist now is the consultant of the Sheikh of Qatar, the US colony.
However, as well as I knew that “Links” is also a Trot paper. When Kagarlitsky wrote his piece, it was in the line of Russian western integrationist ex-president Medvedev at that time.
