Sparts, terrorists, Amnesty and Corbyn

Workers Hammer No. 231

There are times when reading the websites or press of the far-left nothing surprises me these days. There have been members of the newly founded Left Unity organisation backing ISIS as anti-imperialist, but the laughably names Spartacist League takes a different view that is even more bewildering:

The US, supported by Britain, is now at war with the Islamic State (ISIS), which was initially funded by extremist Wahhabis in Saudi Arabia. [An IS motion of 23 October 2014 said:] “We have a military side with the reactionary ISIL when it engages in military conflict with the imperialists and their local forces on the ground, including the Iraqi Kurdish pesh merga, the Baghdad government, Shi’ite militias and the Syrian Kurds. We give no political support to any of these retrograde forces.”...

It would be interesting to see how long these godless trots would survive alongside ISIS.

Mad anti-imperialism at it's worse.

Meanwhile Corbyns "friends" in Hamas have taken umbrage over a report from Amnesty. Yahoo News reports:

Amnesty International said Thursday Palestinian rocket fire during the 2014 summer war in Gaza had killed more civilians in the Gaza Strip than in Israel.

Such deadly attacks on civilians on both sides constituted "a war crime," it said.

The damning report urged armed Palestinian groups to end attacks on civilians in Israel and to protect those in the Gaza Strip from the effects of such attacks.

That didn't go down well with the Islamist terrorist group:

Hamas rejected the findings, saying Amnesty "distorts the truth deliberately, with a clear bias in favour of the Zionist enemy," or Israel.

The Islamist movement further called Amnesty a "Zionist organisation".

The silence from the anti-imperialists is deafening.....

Of course Jeremy Corbyn isn't much better as his interview on the state controlled Russian propaganda channel RT shows. Buzzfeed reports

During the interview, Corbyn said there needed to be “an acceptance and understanding of why so many people in some of the cities in the north have apparently been prepared to accept the ISIS forces.”

He said he was concerned that western forces might intervene and that a “political compromise” was preferable.

These would be the cities conquered at gunpoint and all opposition is put to the sword whilst women are enslaved & raped.

Not my definition of "accepted".

There can be no compromise with the fascists of ISIS.

Corbyn is so obviously unfit for government. Full stop.
