Communists behind “Free Palestine” movement
By Cliff Kincaid

A “National March on Washington” to “Free Palestine” and “End all U.S. aid to Israel!” is scheduled for November 4 and is sponsored by several openly communist groups, including the ANSWER Coalition and the Party for Socialism & Liberation. Other sponsors include:

  • Palestinian Youth Movement

  • American Muslim Association

  • The People’s Forum

  • National Students for Justice in Palestine

  • Al-Awda: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition

  • U.S. Palestinian Community Network (USPCN)

  • U.S. Campaign for Palestinian Rights (USCPR)

  • Maryland2Palestine

Of these groups, the New York-based People’s Forum is particularly significant in its communist leanings, for it offers a course on Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, more commonly known as Lenin, described in course materials as “a well-loved revolutionary across countries and movements, whose name embodies the spirit of working-class internationalism.”

The instructor is Brian Becker, the National Coordinator of the ANSWER Coalition who is also a founder of and central organizer for the Party for Socialism and Liberation. Becker was once a member of the secretariat of the Workers World Party, an openly Marxist-Leninist party. He switched from one communist group to another during a factional dispute.

He supports regimes in Russia and North Korea and was also a main organizer of the March 18 anti-Ukraine rally in Washington, D.C.

Congress once investigated communist groups supporting foreign enemies, but that is now considered “McCarthyism” and unacceptable. Instead, former President Donald J. Trump and his supporters have been (and are) investigated. Special Counsel Jack Smith, who was trained at the United Nations’ International Criminal Court, targets Donald Trump personally.

In contrast to YouTube’s censorship of my 500 anti-communist videos, Becker has a YouTube video in honor of the Communist Manifesto, the Mein Kampf of the communist movement. That video shows him speaking on “Red Books Day” to a mostly young audience.

As our recent report documents, anti-Semitism arose from the Russian forgery of the Protocols of Learned Elders of Zion, and explains that hatred of the Jews spread around the world by communists and Nazis was embraced by the “Free Palestine” movement, including Hamas.

But it was Lenin who started this process.

In our report “Communists and Muslims: The Hidden Hand of the KGB,” former KGB officer Konstantin Preobrazhensky noted, “The communists have considered Islam their ally from the very beginning because in the early 20th century Islam was the religion of the ‘oppressed people,’ of the ‘oppressed nations.’ Support of Islam was considered part of Russian-based anti-colonialism. It is very significant that Vladimir Lenin in 1917 addressed his second message to the ‘Muslim toilers of Russia and the Whole World.’ So they considered Muslims a reservoir of people for the world communist revolution.”

In my own remarks on the subject, I noted that Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn participated in protests in Egypt in January 2010 on behalf of the “Gaza Freedom March,” to deliver “humanitarian aid” to Hamas-run Gaza.

Israel conducted a raid in May 2010 on a flotilla delivering “aid” to Gaza.

Endorsers of the Gaza Freedom March included Noam Chomsky, a member of the board of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism, a spin-off from the Communist Party; and Howard Zinn, the late “historian” exposed by his FBI file as a secret member of the Communist Party USA.

As Joe Biden now pleads for “humanitarian aid” to Hamas-controlled Gaza, history is repeating itself. Israel must not be fooled.

The current list of “endorsers” of the November communist-sponsored rally includes:

  • Code Pink

  • BDS and Palestine Solidarity Working Group of the DSA (Democratic Socialists of America)

  • Honor the Earth

  • Ohio Peace Council

  • DC Metro Coalition in Solidarity with Cuba

  • Cuba and Venezuela Solidarity Committee

  • Global Network Against Weapons & Nuclear Power in Space

  • Anti-Imperialist Action Committee

  • Socialist Unity Party

  • Peoples Power Assembly

  • Struggle/La Lucha Newspaper

  • Malaya Movement USA

  • Women Against Military Madness

  • Anti-Imperialist Action UMBC

  • North Carolina Environmental Justice Network

  • American Student Union

  • Socialist Action

  • Palestine Action US

  • Party of Communists USA

  • Cosmic Omnism Collective

  • League of Young Communists USA

  • Haiti Liberté

  • Bronx Anti War Coalition

  • Palestine Charity Team

  • Environmentalists Against War

  • Partners for Peace

  • Faculty for Justice in Palestine at NYU

  • The Queer Notion

  • St. Pete for Peace

  • International Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self-Determination & Liberation

  • Indigenous Peoples' Movement for Self Determination and Liberation

  • Jim Lafferty, National Lawyers Guild

Of these groups, the National Lawyers Guild, an old Communist Party front, is also significant. Honest liberal law professor Alan M. Dershowitz has commented, “The Guild has never abandoned its Marxist-Leninist provenance. It supports Antifa, which also employs violence to disrupt speakers….”

The Guild has more than 100 chapters in American law schools. Its membership includes many law professors.

Still another significant organization is Code Pink, which was very close to Barack Hussein Obama.

While Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene is introducing a resolution to censure Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. for “antisemitic activity” and “sympathizing with terrorist organizations,” Greene posed for pictures with members of Code Pink to oppose aid to Ukraine.

In other developments regarding the scheduled rally, we find several bizarre groups have been listed, such as “The Queer Notion,” which features “Furiously Licking Sandpaper,” a poem written by punk artist Milo Paul. Another noteworthy group, the Cosmic Omnism Collective, is “a faith-led space for cosmically-inspired divine beings of all paths” who seek cosmic change.

But “Palestine” is not the only piece of land to be “liberated.”

The organization “Honor the Earth“ is listed and opposes Green Colonialism, “from Palestine to Turtle Island,” an Indian name for North America.

The group “MD 2 Palestine” makes it clear what is really happening, declaring that “We recognize that we organize on stolen and unceded indigenous Piscataway and Anacostan land.”

That is another name for Washington, D.C. and the surrounding area, including parts of Maryland and Virginia.

In other words, after the Jews are evicted, the Americans better watch out.

The Russians, of course, are already saying that after they take over Ukraine, they want to target Alaska, which they claim was “stolen” from them.
