Israel's 'new Middle East'

Excellent article on the anarchist a-infos newswire on the current Israeli war on the Lebanon. Written by an Israeli, Professor Tanya Reinhart, it punctures the lies of the Israeli government and its allies in the US and UK.

Also worth pointing out is that unlike most other sections of the 'left', the class struggle stream of anarchism has not adopted the 'we must support Hezbullah' line. Sticking to class and secularist principles, they've instead attacked Israel for what it's doing, but also criticised the Islamist movements for their reactionary, racist and sexist policies. The contrast between groups as disparate as Class War and the French CNT on the one hand, and the different flavours of Leninists and Trotskyists is striking.
