Permanent Revlution in the Middle East

Posted by Jack Stephens on July 13, 2008

Farfahinne blogs on a speech she attended in London during the Marxism 2008 festival sponsored by the Socialist Workers Party:

Alex Callinicos, is a leading figure on the left internationally and a major Marxist theoretician. He is a leading member of the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) and has participated in every major anti-capitalist mobilization since Seattle.
his talk was very interesting, it was titled : the Permanent Revolution in the Middle East. one of the most important things he said, that the struggle of the Palestinian People is not limited to the Palestinians themselves. It’s a broader one that involves the struggle of workers against the Arab Local Regimes who are the agents of Israel and imperialism. the conflict’s way out is the permanent Revolution that breaks the bounderies of individual societies.

  1. He is correct in that speech. His group has a history of being uncritical to Hamas and other Islamist formations.

    I believe Israel has a right to exist, as part of a Federation of Socialist Middle Eastern States.

    I’m against boycotts of Israel, because they hurt workers and the left.

  2. as part of a Federation of Socialist Middle Eastern States.

    Which would essentially mean the “destruction” of Israel as it would be a one state country with a majority Arab population. So, same difference.
