Live dangerous — shop at Marks and Spencers

I don’t want to be a court jew

A court jew kneeling before the throne of the idiot anti-zionist

The court jew in the palace of the stupid anti-imperialist

Martin Buber where are you now

You who refused to kneel before the ultimate socialism of fools

– anti-semitism.

You who abstained from being the house nigger

From being an Uncle Tevye

I don’t want to shout out “not in my name”

(and my name is Y’Israel Zen ben David)

Instead I want to scream out “Jews don’t need to disassociate themselves from collective guilt cos there is no collective guilt”

I wanna be a dangerous Jew, a frightening Jew, a threatening Jew, a communist Jew, a revolutionary Jew

I don’t wanna be an easy protest Jew

And today the easy protest is to demand the blood-stained might of Israel , gets out of Lebanon, gets out of Gaza, turns back on the road to Damascus, ceases its recreation of armeggedon

You don’t have to be a socialist to demand this, you don’t have to be a Trotskyist to demand this

You don’t have to be a Cohen or a Levy or a Gluckstein to demand this

Or a Y’Israel Zen ben David to demand this

You just have to be sane

And in the name of sanity demand it!

Being a dangerous Jew, a frightening Jew, a threatening Jew, a communist Jew, a revolutionary Jew means living on a different planet

The planet of Truth

As Trotsky said “Only the truth is revolutionary”

And the truth is that Hizbollah are not the Sandanistas, are not the ANC, are not the IRA, are not Gueverrists, are not anti-colonialists, are not Spanish Republicans, Sparticists or Bolsheviks

Are not a fitting emblem for our tee shirts

The truth is that they are fascists, neo-fascists , proto fascists

They are feudalists, medievalists,obscurantists

Theocratic collectivists

Seeking to re-establish the Caliphate

A thousand years too late

Without the science, the medicine, the mathamatics, the poetry, the philosophy

Just the Protocols of Zion

And support for the prophet system

Concealing these simple truths

Is not part of any honest anti-war movement

It is part of a dishonest anti-war movement

It is part of a pro-war movement

It is the 1930s. And it is the 1940s.

It is the same movement which saw the red flags of the Palestinian communists unfurled in solidarity with Haj Amin al-Husseini

The Mufti of Jerusalem

Idiot anti Zionist

Idiot collaborator with Adolf Hitler

I wanna stand between the anti-Zionist picket of Marks and Spencers

And the Zionist picket of the anti-Zionist picket of Marks and Spencers

Denouncing the massacres

Wearing the mascara

Being camp

The third camp

Asking do you want to buy a picket or two.

Asking do you enjoy kids’ games.

So let’s play Spot The Difference

A Palestinian child in a two foot coffin

An Israeli child in a two foot coffin

Lids closed

Where do you put your Stop The War flags?

Your Hizbullah flags?

Your Zionist flags?

Your red flags?

Let me tell your where to put them.

I hate this poem

Rather I hate writing this poem

Rather I hate the truths behind this poem

Where sticking simply to the easy protest

Would be an easier way to win friends

But not to influence people

Because the enemy of your enemy can also be another of your enemies

And the friend of your friend can be a bastard reactionary

So don’t dance with the boy who danced with the girl who danced with the prince of darkness

It’s just an accident of geography and sperm direction that Jews weren’t born Muslims

And vice versa

It can get worser

So fight for workers unity

Cut out the communalists

The Board of Deputies and the Muslim Association

So fight for workers unity

Cut out the opiates

The synagogues and the mosques

So fight for workers unity

Sling out the middlemen

The Jihadists and the Israeli leadership

So fight for workers unity

Get a new tee shirt

In my name

The author is a Jewish independent socialist
