The Communist Party of Israel strongly condemns the imperialist intervention lead by the U.S. in Iraq and Syria. We obviously agree that the barbaric atrocities and crimes that reactionary organizations like ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and alike have been carrying out must be fought against and eliminated. Nevertheless, a struggle against those genocidal organizations and for their total overthrown cannot be conducted or achieved by imperialist powers whose all aspiration is to substitute one oppression for another.
Under the guise of defending “democracy”, “human rights” and “freedom” – the U.S., NATO, the EU and various imperialist forces and supporters have tried to pursue their narrow interests, typically by supporting their own puppet dictators at the expense of the wellbeing of the peoples. More often than not, it is imperialism itself that nurtures the very same fascist and murderous organizations that later on, once they turned their back on their imperialist partners, are condemned and attacked by those partners themselves. And so it is now with ISIS and their co-bullies. On the one hand, many bourgeois democracies join forces with imperialist U.S. in same U.S. and its allies that actually created ISIS – armed it, equipped it, financed it and built it up thoroughly.
By its invasion to Iraq, and later on its intervention in Syria, the U.S. has been trying to destabilize those countries and shatter them into pieces. Just like with the Taliban before, the U.S. believed that supporting ISIS and alike would deliver that plot and empower its imperialist gist even more. Alas! The “dream”, as it were, has become a nightmare
No to imperialism!
No to ISIS!
For solidarity with the peoples of Iraq and Syria!
For real democracy and justice for all!
