Israel Turning Jews into NAZIs Part 1: 
Netan-NAZI Turns Rafah into the Warsaw Ghetto

“Israel has done something truly incredible—Israel has managed to turn Jews into Nazis!”
from Bob Avakian, as a companion to his statement that: After the Holocaust, the worst thing that has happened to Jewish people is the state of Israel.

In 1939, the NAZIs invaded Poland and occupied the capital, Warsaw. At that time, Warsaw was second only to New York City in Jewish population, and a global center of Jewish life and culture. 

Central to the NAZI ideology was rabid, violent, dehumanizing antisemitism (for background, see Revolution Responds to Question on Nature of Holocaust). The NAZIs ordered Jews throughout Poland to flee for their lives to the Warsaw ghetto. Over 400,000 Jews were packed into an area just over one square mile in size. The ghetto was surrounded by 10-foot-high walls topped with broken glass and barbed wire. NAZI soldiers were positioned to shoot and kill anyone trying to escape. Starvation, disease, and death were epidemic. Telling the world that Jews were being “evacuated,” the NAZIs shipped about 265,000 Jews from Warsaw to the death camp at Treblinka, in the process massacring 35,000 Jews who resisted, or simply to create a climate of terror that drove people to get on trains to Treblinka.

In 1943, poorly armed Jewish resistance fighters fought back, killing some NAZIs, and in a one-sided slaughter, the NAZIs killed 7,000 Jewish fighters and non-combatants. Captured survivors were shipped to Treblinka. When the army of the Soviet Union (then a socialist country) liberated Warsaw at the end of World War 2, there were only about 11,500 Jews left there.

Today, Israel and Prime Minister Netanyahu (Netan-NAZI) have turned the Palestinian city of Rafah in the Gaza Strip into a modern-day Warsaw Ghetto. Almost a million and a half Palestinians have been driven by Israel’s U.S.-supplied 2,000-pound bombs, missiles, tanks and bulldozers into the town of Rafah on the border of Gaza and Egypt. In the Middle East winter’s cold and rain, they sleep in the streets or in “shelters” of plastic tarps. Israel continues to choke off food, medicine and fuel, and communicable disease is epidemic.

On February 8, Netan-NAZI ordered the people now packed into Rafah to “evacuate.” According to reports in Israeli newspapers, people in Rafah are being ordered to go into a “safe zone” where they would be trying to survive in conditions as crowded as the Warsaw Ghetto but sleeping in the sand, without water, food, or electricity instead of overflowing apartment rooms. Areas Israel designates as “safe zones” have no running water or bathrooms, and tents provide little protection from winter’s cool, rainy weather. And Israel has consistently bombed “safe zones” during the entire genocidal slaughter in Gaza.

In one form or another, the Zionist state of Israel is moving to do to the Palestinian people in Rafah what the NAZIs did to the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto.

Help Make 2024 Our Year—a Year of Revolution! 
Donate to Revcom.us

From the genocide in Gaza, to the growing threat of world war between nuclear powers, to escalating environmental devastation… the capitalist-imperialist system ruling over us is a horror for billions around the world and is tearing up the fabric of life on earth. Now the all-out battle within the U.S. ruling class, between fascist Republicans and war criminal Democrats, is coming to a head—likely during, or before, the coming elections—ripping society apart unlike anything since the Civil War. 

Bob Avakian (BA), revolutionary leader and author of the new communism, has developed a strategy to prepare for and make revolution. He’s scientifically analyzed that this is a rare time when an actual revolution has become more possible, and has laid out the sweeping vision, solid foundation and concrete blueprint for “what comes next,” in the Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America

The website revcom.us follows and applies that leadership and is essential to all this. We post new materials from BA and curate his whole body of work. We apply the science he’s developed to analyze and expose every key event in society, every week. Revcom.us posts BA’s timely leadership for the revcoms (revolutionary communists), including his social media posts which break this down for people every week and sometimes more. We act as a guiding and connecting hub for the growing revcom movement nationwide: not just showing what’s being done, but going into what’s right and what’s wrong and rapidly learning—and recruiting new people into what has to be a rapidly growing force.

Put it this way: there will be no revolution unless this website not only “keeps going” but goes up to a whole different level!
