>USSR2 File: Continuing Communist Party of the Soviet Union joins communists worldwide in condemning Israel, supporting Palestinians and Lebanon

>Adhering to the axiom “The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” the Red International is unwaveringly devoted to the Islamic cause and opposes the existence of Israel. Note that both the continuing Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the Communist Party of Israel, which operates as a nationally self-denying cancer in Israel’s body politic, supported this declaration of solidarity with the Palestinians and Lebanese. Not surprisingly, the Lebanese Communist Party, Syrian Communist Party and communist Tudeh Party of Iran supported the statement too.

The banner above is taken from the website of the largest faction of the CPSU, operating under the leadership of Oleg Shenin and Gennady Zyuganov.

Joint statement by communist and workers’ parties
Solidarity with Palestinian and Lebanese people

We strongly condemn all aggressive acts by the Israeli
army in Gaza and Lebanon with tragically consequences for
the live of the Palestinian, Lebanese and Israeli people
but also for people from other countries.

We reject and condemn the blames and threats by U.S and
Israeli government addressed toward Syria and Iran and
against other countries of the region. These threats reveal
that the real aggressive and expansive force in the region
is Israel.

We strongly protest the US policy which encourages the
Israeli aggressiveness. We reject the hypocrisy shown by
the G8 leaders and the “equal distance” policy pursued
today by certain forces.

We are highly concerned about and warn of the great
dangers for a general spread of the crisis in the Middle
East, for a new civil war and for a massive imperialist
intervention in Lebanon under the pretext of “peace
building measures”.

The bombings against Lebanon follow the fierce offensive
in the Gaza Strip, the kidnapping of Palestinian political
figures, the attempt to eliminate the Palestinian National
Authority, to destroy the infrastructure and to sink the
Palestinian society into a state of chaos.

The raids in Gaza and Lebanon constitute new steps of the
“Greater Middle East” US and NATO policy which is directed
against the legitimate rights of the peoples, the popular
resistance, the progressive and peace loving forces.

The Israeli government, the only military nuclear power in
the region, demonstratively ignores UN Security Council
resolutions, violates agreements with the Palestinian
Liberation Organization, undermines the agreements by the
Palestinian organizations regarding the creation of an
independent Palestinian state alongside Israel, and rejects
the ceasefire proposals. It is also in violation of the
Fourth Geneva Convention, an international law that
prohibits collective punishment, “targeted” assassinations,
and destruction of the infrastructure of an occupied

We call upon all peace loving forces to strengthen their
solidarity with the Palestinian and Lebanese peoples, with
the progressive forces fighting for peace in Israel and to
intensify the struggle for a political solution based on:

The immediate cessation of the attacks and withdrawal of
the Israeli army.

The respect of national sovereignty and territorial
integrity against any imperialist intervention under any

The immediate release of the political prisoners.

The complete dismantling of the settlements and withdrawal
of the Israeli army from the territories occupied in 1967,
the establishment of a Palestinian state (Gaza Strip and
the West Bank) with its capital in East Jerusalem,
alongside Israel. The solution of the refugee question. The
return of all Palestinian refugees should be based on the
resolution of UN General Assembly No. 194 and according
also to the other UN resolutions.

Only pulling out Israeli soldiers from Gaza and Lebanon and
a just and viable peace would put an end to the bloodshed
and guarantee the security for all peoples of the Middle
