For the defeat of the Israeli offensive: No to UN or NATO intervention!

Juan Chingo | The US wants breathe life, at least provisionally, into an option that the Israeli army, frightened by the high costs and fatal consequences of the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, has not been willing to consider. This is why, at the same time as we redouble our efforts to defeat Israel's military offensive, we must make clear our complete opposition to the deployment of any military force, whether under the command of the UN or NATO, on Lebanese soil. more...  0 Comments

Stop the Israeli offensive against Palestine and Lebanon!

Trotskyist Faction for the Fourth Internation | However, the element that can significantly change the relationship of forces and lay waste to the greatest plans of the most powerful military organization, which is the Israeli army, is the fact that a further intensification of its offensive in Lebanon could spark the mobilization of the masses of the Middle East, who for weeks have watched the bombings, the imprisonment and the collective punishment to which the Palestinian masses in Gaza have been subjected, which has fed the hatred and the spirit of vengeance against the Zionist state. Also, although still in a very minor form, the Israeli attacks are beginning to awaken the pacifist movement in Israel, a problem which could grow if the costs of war continue to mount, not only on the arm (mostly formed by conscripted soldiers), but also on the civilian population, if the Israeli government can't rapidly put a halt to the missile attacks on its civilian population centers. more...  0 Comments
