Protesters call for Netanyahu to resign amid corruption allegations



Democracy and Class Struggle says Netanyahu and Trump have much in common politically but these birds of  feather might be struck down with one stone - criminal charges.

Netanyahu and Trump in chains maybe too much to wish for this Christmas - we wish for peace in Middle East and on the Korean Peninsula first - but both of them being in chains would make that wish just a little bit more possible.


Stone Cold Truth " Its Painfully Obvious Trump will be charged with a Crime " Has Christmas come early ?



Democracy and Class Struggle says so far this Christmas Season we have seen a lot of ill will from Trump over Jerusalem and North Korea but it is just possible we might just get some good cheer if Trump's "John Bircher" Roger Stone is right and Trump is going to get charged with a crime.



Russian Hacker in Russian Court Claims He Hacked DNC Servers By Request Of The Kremlin



Democracy and Class Struggle says we reported individuals in Russian FSB were freelancing and selling information here 

https://democracyandclasstruggle.blogspot.co.uk/2017/02/moscow-treason-arrests-two-senior.html

Therefore someone working for the FSB on Cyber Security is not automatically working for the Kremlin.

Russian interference in the US Election is not automatically Kremlin interference - but still makes it likely.


Konstantin Kozlovsky was arrested by the Russian authorities for alleged bank heists. 

Kozlovsky has reportedly testified that he has been reporting directly to Dmitry Dokuchayev (a major-general in the FSB) since 2008. He also claimed that Dokuchayev had instructed him to attack the DNC’s servers for the purpose of manipulating the electoral process in the United States. 

Democracy and Class Struggle has previously reported that Dokuchayev (Dokuchaev) was himself arrested on charges of treason and was accused by the agency of passing information to the CIA. 

Dokuchayev was also then charged in the US for hacking into the Yahoo servers. 

Dmitry Dokuchaev was arrested for violation of Art. 275 (Treason) of the Russian Criminal Code. 

He says he did not cooperate with hacker Konstantin Kozlovsky, who pleaded guilty to hacking the US Democrats, according to Dokuchaev’s lawyer, RBCreports.


For United States interference in Russian Elections

The Konstatin Koslovsky story may be true or false , at least it fits a pattern of activities by rogue FSB Traitors  - but what it links too in future may be more interesting.

India : Kobad Ghandy Re- Arrested - Press Statement from Kobad Ghandy




After being acquitted in all cases and spending eight years and three months in jail, when I, Kobad Ghandy was finally released from jail, I was re-arrested by the Jharkhand Police just three days after release. On Dec 16, 2017, I was attending the Achempet Court (near Hyderabad), the Jharkhand, accompanied by the APSIB (Andhra Pradesh State Intelligence Bureau) arrested me and took me by flight to Ranchi.

This FIR has been pending since 2010 and even though I and the Cherlapalli jail authorities wrote to the JMFC Bokaro/Tenughat twice for production there was no response. The first letter was written more than one year back on November 2, 2016. And when there was no response to this a reminder was sent by me and the jail authorities on March 9, 2017. Still there was no response.

Though I am 71 years and in serious health conditions. Immediately after release I had a check-up at the Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad, which recommended at least one month's complete rest. 

It is clear the police methods are being used to kill legally, given I am 71 years old and in very poor health. Since seven years they did not bother about this case, but in order to keep me in jail as an under trial indefinitely, they arrested me immediately on release.

In the case they have taken me, most have been acquitted and the rest are on bail. Yet the harassment.

If anything serious happens to my health in jail with this arrest, I will hold the government responsible. Given that I have been acquitted in all cases, that most have been acquitted in this case, and my age and health condition, demand my immediate release.

India Seeks To Reshape Its Armored Forces

Catalonia :'Future of Article 155 central in campaign debate'



Democracy and Class Struggle says the struggle in Catalonia is very important for the future of national rights and democracy not only in Spain but all of Europe.

The absence of a Marxist Leninist Maoist Revolutionary Party to lead working class National and Social Liberation in Catalonia is not the absence of the relevance of  Catalan Struggle to Europe and the rest of the World,

Catalonia's most hesitant bourgeoisie is confirmation that only the working class can lead the national struggle to success

In the absence of a revolutionary MLM  Party in Catalonia Democracy and Class Struggle like our Welsh Comrades in Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr critically supports Popular Unity CUP in Catalan Elections and a Constituent Assembly Process to create a democratic Constitution for the New Catalan Republic.

Those revisionists and  social democrats who rally to the defense of the Spanish State are promoting Social Fascism.

We know these  "Revolutionary" Leftists who love the Spanish the British and Imperialist French States very well.

They are opposed to the revolutionary smashing of these Imperialist States and are terrified of real revolution

They have good reason to fear us as their political days are numbered.








India : Hyderabad Friends and Comrades Released



I, along with 18 other friends, was released at 9.45 and reached home by 10.30.

Today I am a little busy on some other preoccupation and I will write a detailed note most probably tomorrow on what happened and how. Anyway, Thanks from depths of my heart for you concern.

Shameful Act of Telangana Government

Friends, in protest of Prapancha Telugu Mahasabhalu (World Telugu Conference, a state sponsered circus in the mame of language and literature), Virasam gave a call to boycott and organised a protest demonstration at Sri Sri’s statue on Tank Bund at 4 pm today.

At 2 pm, two hours ahead of demonstration, police came to my home and said they are making a preventive arrest. 

I was brought to kanchan bagh police station. Around 5 pm many others including varavara rao, pani, kasim, geetanjali, maabjoomi sandhyakka are also brought to the same police station.

Nepal Deserves Better than a cabal of Old and New Revisionists : Statement from Democracy and Class Struggle

                                                              Oli and Prachanda

Democracy and Class Struggle has seen some people hail the victory of Prachanda in Alliance with UML in Nepal - this perfidious combination of old and new revisionism is nothing to celebrate

It appears Prachanda's group got 14% of the vote and UML got 36%  and Nepali Congress 35%.

Prachanda with Bhattarai are the men who supported the Nepalese Army dispersing Peoples Liberation Army  members from their encampments,

The People's War was betrayed for a corrupt Bourgeois Republic to be run by Old and New Revisionist running dogs.

What is Marxism-Leninism-Maoism? How can it apply to Ireland today?




Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is a third and higher stage in the development of scientific socialism. Marxism was developed by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels in the Epoch of Capitalism.

Marxism-Leninism was developed by Lenin and Stalin building on the universal aspects of Marxism through the experience of the worlds first successful socialist revolution and the construction of socialism in the USSR and Maoism, was first developed by Chairman Mao Tse- Tung and the communists of China, building on the universal aspects of Marxism- Leninism and through the victory of the Chinese revolution and the development of the struggle against imperialism.

As Marxism-Leninism is more than the adoption of Marxism to Russian conditions, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism is more then the adoption of Marxism to Chinese conditions.

The universal aspects of Marxism-Leninism-Maoism were synthesized in the 1980s by the Communist Party of Peru, under the leadership of Chairman Gonzalo, developing the theory of Maoism into a great universal weapon of the working class through the fire of revolution.

Today, Marxism-Leninism-Maoism gives hope to all those struggling for communism against the betrayal of revisionism and sets out a roadmap for victory in the struggle for national liberation and socialism, through the theory of Protracted People’s War, the Military theory of the working class that has guided successful revolutions in China, People’s Korea and Vietnam and continues to be utlised by the people of India, the Philippines, Nepal with devastating effect, continuing to inspire Working Class and oppressed peoples all over the world.

Irish Revolutionaries have always sought to apply the most advanced methods of scientific socialism to the concrete conditions of the struggle for national liberation and socialism.James Connolly and Liam Mellows successfully applied the Marxist Method to the Irish Struggle, which was built on later by revolutionary cadre such as Seamus Costello to build a Marxist Leninist fighting organisation of the Irish Working Class.

Since the victory of the Chinese Revolution in 1949, have closely studied the experience of Mao and Maoism. During the border campaign from 1956-1962, IRA Prisoners, led by Seamus Costello, then just a teenager, studied the Chinese Revolution and the struggle for national liberation and socialism in Vietnam and attempted to apply the lessons of those struggles to Ireland.

On release, this led the IRA to adopt a position of engaging in revolutionary mass work alongside its military campaign. During the 1960s, Seamus Costello, then a member of the IRA Army Council approaches Revolutionary China for Financial support, weapons and training for IRA Cadre to continue the struggle for national liberation and socialism.

And again in the 1980s, as the People’s War was waging in Peru, a number of IRA commanders along Britain’s illegal border in Ireland, who had studied the writings of Mao while in prison, began to develop a strategy for Protracted People’s War in Ireland.

IRA Cadre such as Jim Lynagh, Padraig McKearney, Seamus McElwaine, Padraig Kelly were to the fore in attempting to create liberated areas along the border that could be linked together to create a system revolutionary dual power and were said by comrades to building towards a Vietnam style TET offensive.

These IRA leaders and their comrades however, were systematically taken out in targeted assassinations by British terrorists in Ireland.


One again, in the 21st century, Irish Revolutionaries and the Irish Working Class must look to the most advanced teachings of scientific socialism to advance our struggle for national liberation and socialism. Irish Revolutionaries must study Marxism-Leninism-Maoism and attempt to apply its universal aspects to the conditions in Ireland today.

The building of a United Front, uniting all revolutionary forces in the struggle for national liberation and socialism is one of the most pressing tasks for Irish Revolutionaries.

The United Front, one of the key tools of Maoist Strategy and Tactics and long advocated in Ireland by Seamus Costello under the name ‘Anti- Imperialist Broad Front’ is the vehicle through which the Irish Working Class can defeat capitalism and imperialism and rebuild the Socialist Republic.

This is for our generation. 

Study and Develop Marxism-Leninism-Maoism! 

Build the United/ Anti-Imperialist Broad Front!

Undoing the New Deal: Truman Embraces the Cold War (pt4)



Democracy and Class Struggle says this interview reveals more about the social democratic views of Kuznik than previous interviews - the comments on backward countries lead to backward socialism is blatant social imperialism with overtones of kautskyism and trotskyism old twin running dogs of social democracy.

Leninism and Maoism understands the basis of the advanced and backward ideologically and the backwardness of Western Social Democrats like Peter Kuznik.

Also the modern US revisionist current of Browderism ( the backward revision of communism ) did not come from nowhere and seriously  underestimated US Imperialism after the Second World War to the detriment of the working people of the United States - it also finds an echo in the Kuznik interview.   


Democracy and Class Struggle says New Deal in the USA like the Welfare State in Britain has been  finally undone by the neo liberal capitalist evangelists.

What lessons should we learn today 80 years later from the New Deal and Welfare State ?


My late comrade Arthur Evans who lived in United States through the New Deal and was a member of the Communist Party of The United States and in Britain was a member of the CPGB in the 1940/50's told me the New Deal/Welfare State was also a Warfare State.


The Communists in the United States became not just John L Lewis's hunting dogs but Roosevelt's hunting dogs and Earl Browder was the pack leader, saving democracy from Fascism was seen has the overridding consideration.


However subordinating domestic revolutionary politics came at a cost and the ease at which the Mob put Harry S Truman in power following the death of Roosevelt illustrated how narrow was the base for even a social democratic socialism in the United States.


Likewise in Britain the Welfare State came into existence at the same time of bloody interventions by British Imperialism in Greece and Malaya and the Warfare State has seen out the Welfare State.


Henry Wallace's Century of the Common Man gave way to the American Century of Time Magazine.


The American Century was a bloody Imperialist one, the Warfare State eroded the Welfare State and  destroyed the New Deal.

Moranbong Band & State Merited Chorus concert in celebration of ICBM Hwasong-15 (summary)



Democracy and Class Struggle says after 70 years of nuclear blackmail by the United States of the DPRK the DPRK has now trumped Trump with a nuclear deterrence of their own - so any aggressor knows the devastating price they will have to pay for violating North Korean Sovereignty,

The United States should leave the Korean Peninsula and the 38th Parallel another US creation made in 1945 on a map in Washington without Korean consent must come to an end.

On the day after Nagasaki was obliterated, John J. McCloy of the War Department asked Dean Rusk and a colleague to go into a spare office and think about how to divide Korea. They chose the 38th parallel, and three weeks later 25,000 American combat troops entered southern Korea to establish a military government - Bruce Cumins in a Murderous History of Korea.

Russia not the United States is a possible mediator for North and South Korean dialogue of re-unification  of the Korean Peninsula just like in the Middle East the role of United States is coming to an end - what we see are last final attempts to retain US hegemony in North Asia by unleashing Japanese Imperialism and the Ideology of Nippon Kaigi.  

Unleashing Japanese Imperialism will prove the dialectic of history at work again - the United States not the Korea's North or South will pay the price for this monsterous act.








US Can No Longer Mediate Middle East Peace Process - Mahmoud Abbas Palestinian President



Democracy  and  Class Struggle says US action over Jerusalem has even become unacceptable to the Middle East States - to even the running dogs of US imperialism - what has been obvious for ages that the US was the enabler of Israeli expansionism now is obvious to all.

We are witnessing the end of US Role in Middle East but it will probably take one final war to prove it conclusively and the new agents of that US Israeli defeat are stronger than they have ever been in the region.

Contrary to myths the Arab Street is not dead but it is finding new ways to surface and Trump's decision on Jerusalem is revitilizing the Arab Street after a short period of dormancy.

Biding your time until new openings arise shows the intelligence of the Arab Street - and Trumps' decision on Jerusalem is confirmation of the dialectic of history Trumps negation will be  the affirmation of the Palestinian Cause.

Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine says Emergency Pan-Islamic OIC summit in Istanbul.




Democracy and Class Struggle says the contradictions between Middle East States and USA deepens also the contradictions within Middle East States reach a high point of tension - Trump has spurned his friends in the Arab Elite who risk losing power if they continue covertly or overtly support Israel and US Imperialist Policy.

War with Israel overtly or covertly is a high probability as the situation in Middle East is very unstable and degenerating by the hour.



Is this is the beginning of the end of United States influence in Middle East ?  but as usual it will take a war to prove it in practice - it is important that the Kurds do not find themselves on the wrong side in the coming conflict or it will set them back another 100 years.

Lucifer Loses in Alabama - Steve Bannon humbled and people of South speak up


Roy Moore was supposed to be Steve Bannon's first big victory, a cannonball fired into the heart of the Republican establishment and a visible example of the populist-evangelical electoral alliance he was crafting.

Instead, the former Trump campaign head and senior White House adviser has been humbled. His candidate, it turns out, was deeply flawed and he ended up losing what should have been a slam-dunk Senate election.

Mr Bannon has declared all-out war against Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, whom he views as insufficiently supportive of Mr Trump's "America first" agenda, and promised to field 2018 primary challengers against every Republican senator running for re-election save Texan Ted Cruz.

If Mr Moore had prevailed, Mr Bannon would probably have found plenty of volunteers ready to lead the charge and deep-pocketed benefactors to finance the efforts.

Now, however, instead of claiming his first scalp, he will be blamed by leaders in his party for narrowing the Republican Senate majority and damaging the party's brand.

Middle East Is On Verge Of War Following Trump's Recognition Of Jerusalem As Israel's Capital



Democracy and Class Struggle says the video summary above points to Full Scale War breaking out sooner rather than later in Middle East with US and Israel being the targets of a new counter offensive.

While we do not rule out War breaking out on the Korean Peninsula because of US Provocations - we take the view that the coming war is most likely in the Middle East as the cost militarily and politically is seen to be less with a Middle East War than a Second Korean War which would quickly escalate to a Nuclear War.

War is coming - capitalist imperialism has not changed and Trump needs a War more than ever as the Special Prosecutor is getting too close for his personal comfort - there are no seasons greetings -  just warnings.

PHILIPPINES: STATEMENT AGAINST PROCLAMATION 360 & 374 OF THE US-DIRECTED DUTERTE FASCIST REGIME BY PROF JOSE MARIA SISON




By Prof. Jose Maria Sison, Founding Chairman, Communist Party of the Philippines & Chief Political Consultant, National Democratic Front of the Philippines, December 10, 2017

It is fine that GRP President Rodrigo R. Duterte is on record as having terminated the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations by issuing Proclamation 360 for the purpose.

He and the officials of his regime and armed forces have boasted that they are hell-bent on unleashing a single-minded war of suppression to destroy the revolutionary forces of the Filipino people.

The Filipino people and their revolutionary forces are therefore fully justified to defend themselves and defeat the current Duterte regime of the US-dominated big comprador-landlord state and pursue the people´s democratic revolution. The terrorist regime of Duterte is merely a passing phase in the ever worsening chronic crisis of the semicolonial and semifeudal ruling system.

Duterte, the No. 1 terrorist of the Philippines, has also issued Proclamation 374 labeling the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) and the New People´s Army (NPA) as terrorist organizations. His purpose is to apply the Human Security Act of 2007 (RA 9373) and the Terrorism Financing Prevention and Suppression Act of 2012 (RA 10168) .

The vile purpose of the Duterte regime is to proscribe the CPP and NPA as terrorist organizations and wage a campaign to slander them, arbitrarily list down suspected officers and members for general intimidation, abduction, torture and mass murder as in Oplan Tokhang and further list individuals who are suspected of financing and aiding the CPP and NPA , who are themselves deemed as terrorists and who are thus made vulnerable to the violations of human rights and extortions by the terrorist regime.

Within the Philippines and abroad, the Duterte regime is already notorious for the use of state terrorism and for human rights violations against suspected users and pushers of illegal drugs in impoverished communities, the toiling masses of workers and peasants, the Cordillera, Lumad and Bangsamoro national minorities and the brutal occupation of communities and destruction of the entire Marawi City by bombing.

The US-directed Duterte regime perpetrates gross and systematic acts of terrorism and human rights violations. It has no moral, political and legal basis for proscribing and further unleashing
fascist violence against the revolutionary forces, the democratic organizations and the broad masses of the people who have the sovereign right to resist and overthrow a regime that is oppressive and tyrannical.

The Filipino people and revolutionary forces encompassed by the National Democratic Front of the Philippines (NDFP) and by the People´s Democratic Government (PDG) have the inherent status of co-belligerency in their long running civil war with the US-propped big comprador-landlord state currently represented by Duterte. The CPP is the leading party of the new democratic revolution and the PDG. The NPA is the main armed force of the PDG.

The revolutionary political character of the CPP and NPA is solemnly manifested in the Program for a People’s Democratic Revolution of December 26, 1968, the Guide for Building Organs of Political Power of April 1971, the Guide for Establishing the People’s Democratic Government of October 1972, the Guidelines and Program of the National Democratic Front of the Philippines of 1973 and 1977, the Declaration of Undertaking to Apply the Geneva Conventions of 1948, approved by the NDFP of July 5, 1996 and the GRP-NDFP Comprehensive Agreement on Respect for Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law (CARHRIHL)..

The PDG has a constitution founded on the sovereign will of the Filipino people and on the basic alliance of the working class and peasantry. It aims to complete the people’s struggle for national liberation and democracy under the class leadership of the working class and its revolutionary party. From its modest beginnings in 1969, the PDG has grown and spread nationwide mainly in the form of local organs of political power to more than 110 guerrilla fronts covering large parts of 17 regions and 71 provinces of the Philippines.

The PDG has a comprehensive administrative structure from the village to higher levels: municipal or city, district, provincial and regional. At the basic level of the village, the local organs of political power develop from the stage of the appointive barrio organizing committees to the elective barrio revolutionary committees through various ways of consolidation, which involve the building of the revolutionary forces.

The revolutionary forces include the local branch of the Communist Party of the Philippines, the revolutionary mass organizations of various exploited classes and sectors, the people’s militia and self-defense units of mass organizations and the formation of the five basic subcommittees for public education, mass mobilization, economy, defense and health, subject to the formation of further subcommittees in order to better serve the people.

The US-directed Duterte regime is daydreaming that it can discredit and destroy the sovereign revolutionary will of the Filipino people by proscribing the revolutionary forces as terrorist organizations, requiring them to submit themselves to the sham processes of the reactionary state and unleashing gross and systematic crimes of terrorism and human rights of violations. The Filipino people and the revolutionary forces are determined to fight for national and social liberation, people´s democracy, economic development, cultural progress and just peace.

The Duterte fascist regime has terminated the GRP-NDFP peace negotiations. But it cannot be too sure that it will last long because the Filipino people and even those in the GRP detest the monstrous crimes of the regime, especially mass murder, corruption and puppetry to the US. The crisis of the ruling system continues to worsen and the resources of the regime for violence and deception are limited. Thus, it is wise for the NDFP to remain open to peace negotiations with the GRP because the people and the broad united front of patriotic and progressive forces can get rid of the Duterte regime as it got rid of the Marcos and Estrada regimes.

"COMMUNISM IS OUR LANGUAGE" - COMRADE PIERRE

North Korean Foreign Ministry on Trump's decision on Jerusalem



Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA Saturday over the U.S.'s decision to recognize Kuds as the capital of Israel:

The decision by U.S. president Trump to recognize Kuds as the capital of Israel and to move the U.S. embassy there well deserves a global condemnation and rejection as it is an open defiance of and an insult to the international legitimacy and to a unanimous will of the international society.

The status of Kuds remains so sensitive that it, for sure, should be solved fairly by means of regaining the national rights of the Palestinian people and striking a comprehensive and lasting solution to the Middle East problem.




This decision of the U.S. is not so surprising as it came from a dotard who had cried out for "total destruction" of a sovereign state at a sacred UN forum.

But, through it, the world will be able to well discern about who is really a wrecker of the world peace and security and who is a gang of hooligans of the international society.

Some countries, which still count on the U.S., would become conscious of the true colors of the U.S.

The U.S. should bear full responsibility for all the consequences of tension and instability that will be entailed in the Middle East region owing to its reckless and highhanded act.

We, out of our external ideas of independence, peace and friendship, condemn strongly the U.S. action this time and express our firm support and solidarity with the Palestinians and other Arabian people in their just cause to regain their legitimate rights.




U.N. Undersecretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman in talks with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho


The Korean Central News Agency said Saturday that Feltman’s visit contributed to a deeper understanding and that they agreed to communicate at “various levels.”

“The UN secretariat’s side expressed its readiness to make a contribution to the relaxation of the tension on the peninsula under the UN Charter,” KCNA said.

It added Feltman paid a “courtesy call” on Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho and held talks with a vice minister of foreign affairs.

Stephane Dujarric, a spokesman for UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, said by email Saturday the delegation had a “broad policy dialogue” in Pyongyang and the body might have further comment later.

The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine described the declaration of US President Donald Trump as a declaration of war against the Palestinian people and their rights that makes the U.S. position clear as a hostile entity toward our people and a partner of the Zionist state in its crimes against the Palestinian people and land, and it must be addressed on this basis.




The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine described the declaration of US President Donald Trump as a declaration of war against the Palestinian people and their rights that makes the U.S. position clear as a hostile entity toward our people and a partner of the Zionist state in its crimes against the Palestinian people and land, and it must be addressed on this basis.

Further, the Front considered that Trump also launched a “bullet of mercy” on the so-called two-state solution, the settlement project and the delusions of the peace process. It called upon the Palestinian leadership to learn the necessary lessons from the devastating experience of reliance on negotiations and U.S. domination and announce the immediate withdrawal from the Oslo agreement and all subsequent and attendant obligations.

The PFLP called on the Palestinian masses and their organizations to unite their efforts and respond collectively, practically and forcefully to this decision through action and escalation of the momentum of the popular movement.

The battle for Jerusalem is one for all of Palestine. For us, Jerusalem is Haifa, Safad, Yafa, Gaza, Ramallah and every village and city in Palestine.

Further, the Front emphasized the need to confront the triangle of conspiracy against Jerusalem and Palestine and the rights of the Palestinian and Arab people, that of imperialism, Zionism and Arab reactionary regimes, and to open the door to appropriate options to resist these schemes.

The Arab masses also clearly reject this decision, which clarifies further the nature of U.S. imperialism as the primary sponsor of Zionist terror in the region that constantly seeks to ignite the region in order to maintain its hegemony.

Jerusalem will always remain the capital of the Palestinian people and the State of Palestine and the imperialist-Zionist alliance will not succeed in its attempts to obliterate the city’s Arab identity and its status in the Arab and Islamic world.

South Korea: The Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front




Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front

The Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front (AINDF) is a banned (under the National Security Act) political organization in South Korea which aim is a popular revolution in the south and to throw out the US occupational forces from the Korean peninsula as well a unification of Korea.

The AINDF was founded during the 60’s, originally as Revolutionary Party for Reunification but the leadership of the party was executed under the regime of Park Chung Hee, a regime who was responsible for murders, torture and mystical disappearances of any opposition. 

Many members of the Revolutionary Party for Reunification were sentenced to long prison terms. In 1985, the party merged with Strategic Liberation Party of South Korea and changed it name to National Democratic Front of South Korea and in 2005 it changed it name to its current – Anti-Imperialist National Democratic Front.

Nasrallah speaks : Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s capital is an insult to all Muslims and a violation of international law.



Democracy and Class Struggle days the dialectic of history is about to come into play and the State of  Israel rather than being helped by Trump's move -  will unite disperate anti hegemonic and anti imperialist forces against both US and Israel - and hasten the end the Arab Monarchies - the Arab Street's rise will be the demise of the State of Israel.

The secretary general of the Lebanese Hezbollah resistance movement says US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel’s capital is an insult to all Muslims and a violation of international law. 

Speaking in a televised address to the Lebanese nation in the capital city of Beirut on Thursday, Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah said following Trump’s decision, 

Israel would stop at nothing to push Palestinians from their homes and confiscate their properties, farms and gardens. He noted that following Trump’s remarks, Israel will certainly try to expand its dominion over the greater Quds and absorb more land in the occupied West Bank. 

Another ambiguity that exists following Trump’s decision, Nasrallah added, was the fate of the sacred places of Muslims and Christians as Zionists will seize this opportunity to pose a major challenge to Muslims’ sanctities, especially al-Aqsa Mosque. 

 By recognizing Jerusalem al-Quds as Israel's capital, the Hezbollah leader said, the heart of the Palestinian issue, which is the city of al-Quds, has been erased from all possible talks, because the issue of al-Quds would fall out of the domain of any negotiations. 

He added that when the US dares to encroach upon the most sacred city for Muslims, there is no doubt that other places, which are less sacred such as the rest of the West Bank, the southern part of Lebanon and other places will be open to similar actions if Muslims remain silent in the face of Trump’s decision. 

He emphasized that silence of Muslims will make them vulnerable and pave the way for encroachment of enemies on other places of importance to them. He went on to note that the Zionist regime of Israel had no respect for international resolutions and paid no attention to all international condemnations, because it only cared about the US stance. 

Nasrallah noted that Trump’s decision was a grave insult to millions of Muslims and Christians who felt offended by transfer of Jerusalem al-Quds to control of Israel in spite of sentiments of Muslims and Christians and is against all international resolutions. 

He added that Zionist media and analysts believed that since Islamic countries are plagued with their own problems, they had no time to react to Trump’s decision and this is why they ignored the entire international community and took such an insulting step. 

Nasrallah said Americans and Zionists believe that even a reaction to Trump’s decision will be limited to a few days of protests, which will finally ebb and the situation would return to normal.

First of all, he said, Muslims must continue their protests against this outrageous step and emphasize the importance of the issue of Palestine for all Muslims, so that nobody would ever dare to do such things. 

Hezbollah leader stated that protests should continue even if they are conducted by a few people, because they are needed to make voice of Muslims be heard by leaders at the White House. 

He continued by saying that every man and woman, old and young, must take part in these protests, especially through social networks, while scholars must hold meetings on this issue and raise their voice in condemnation of Trump’s decision. Sit-ins must be also held, he added, referring to sit-ins conducted by Palestinians in various places, and said such moves will make Trump regret what he has done. 

He advised Arab states by saying that the least they could do was to summon their ambassadors from the United States, underlining that they were not expected to cut relations with the United States, but by recalling their envoys, they should protest the US administration’s measure.

 Nasrallah also stated that Arab countries must mount pressure on Israel so that the Tel Aviv regime would not dare to implement this decision in practice and encroach upon the property and homes of Palestinians in occupied land. 

Hezbollah leader said all kinds of overt and covert contacts with Israel aimed at normalization of ties with Tel Aviv must be cut by all Arab states and all diplomatic ties with Israel must be severed followed by expelling the Zionist regime’s ambassadors from all Arab capitals. “Any step taken to normalize ties with Israel would be the greatest treachery against Palestine at the present juncture,” he said. Nasrallah emphasized that Arab nations and Palestinians must also clearly announce that they have lost their trust in negotiations with Israel and they will not continue talks with Israel. 

Another measure to be taken, he added, was for Muslims to issue statements in their conferences, including those of Arab nations, emphasizing that al-Quds is the permanent capital of Palestine and its status as such will never change. Rekindling the Palestinian intifada, which has been proposed by certain parties, was another measure that Hezbollah leader described as the most important and greatest response to Americans and Zionists. Nasrallah also declared his support for anti-Israeli resistance, adding that resistance was the best way to counter Israel and its backers. 

 In conclusion, the Hezbollah leader called on all people – men, women and children – to take part in a huge rally against Trump’s decision, which will be held in Dahieh neighborhood on the southern suburbs of Beirut next Monday.
