    Quote of the Week basics
    from Bob Avakian

     "No more generations of our youth, here and all around the world, whose life is over, whose fate has been sealed, who have been condemned to an early death or a life of misery and brutality, whom the system has destined for oppression and oblivion even before they are born. I say no more of that."

    Bob Avakian
    Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA
    BAsics 1:13

    What We're All About

    The Case of ISRAEL

    Bastion of Enlightenment…

    or Enforcer for Imperialism:

    The Case of ISRAEL

    The state of Israel is projected to the world as an outpost of democracy and tolerance in a sea of hostile, intolerant Islam bent on its destruction. To be considered a credible mainstream voice in U.S. politics, academia, or the media, one must present Israel as a front line of defense against Jihad, and a critical fortress defending "our way of life."

    When Israel carries out acts that are simply indefensible under international law, such actions are defended by the U.S., rarely noted in the media, and allowable criticism in the U.S. is constrained to mildly taking issue with Israel's "disproportionate response" to what is always branded "terrorism."
