The Zionist State Fed by Blood
Rightist thinkers who write sentences like “Hamas shouldn’t have acted against the ceasefire” or “would it
have been better if there had not been any resistance?” have come out among the columnists in the so-called
“Islamist” newspapers,. Let the leftists read the following, but the rightists read it twice.

If the knowledge is corrupt, then everything is corrupt.
In a country or in a world where disinformation has become a religion and every literate man show up as a
                                 writer, the need for the truth and its sacredness increase rapidly.
                                 Some columnists who have no clue about resistance and the stages of jihad
                                 rushed to their pens, without any right or knowledge, as if being governed
                                 from a single center.
                                 All of them chew the same words, all of them have the same primitive jargon.
                                 ”It was Hamas who violated the ceasefire, so Hamas is responsible of what has
                                 “Hamas is a terrorist organization.”
                                 “What has been gained from the 60-year old resistance? Would it have been
                                 worse if the option of dialogue had been chosen instead of resistance?”
                                 “Anti-Semitism is rising”...
                                 The same propaganda from the same center is penetrating into our minds.. And
                                 this impurity has no rightist or leftist or Ergenokonist! There is no slightest dif-
                                 ference between rightist mind and leftist mind, Ergenokonist mind and Islamist
Now you would call it coincidence.
And I would tell you “no way”

Look at the way Fikret Baskaya, the liberal teacher of the liberal country, explained the process, with such an
insistence and firmness.

The ignorance of the rightists and the leftists is acceptable..
However, the ignorance of the Islamists who claim to identify themselves with Jerusa-
lem and Palestine, who claimed that Jerusalem and Gaza are a pain in their hearts is

noth’ng but adm’ss’on of the’r gu’lts/
Go ahead Teacher Fikret, speak up.
For those who have mind and heart... (Üstün Bol)
Zionist State nourished
       with bloodshed         Fikret Baskaya

                                  There arise reactions all over the world following the massacres of Zion-
                                  ist Israel. Demonstrations and marches are organized, Israeli and Ameri-
                                  can flags are fired. The US and Europe, the absolute supporters of Israel,
                                  are blasted, people cry for the murdered and wounded people and for
                                  the ones left without food and water, homeless and helpless in Palestine.
                                  Media commentators -who are ‘experts’ of this issue- and columnists
                                  speak for long hours or write lots of pages without having a word on
                                  Zionism, colonialism, imperialism. ‘Outstanding foreign policy geniuses’
                                  who were invited to TV studios are contented with merely analyzing the
                                  “how” part of the question deeply disregarding “why” part of it indeed...
And Israeli attacks are going on in a more condense manner. Each attack, massacre and destruction
is perceived as if it is the first one and this makes people forget the past attacks. These are rightful
reactions, convenient and humane, but castigating, blasting, feeling sorrow, crying and even feel-
ing embarrassed, unfortunately, are not enough to stop one century-tragedy of Palestinian people,
these don’t provide cure to their pains; actually it is impossible to do. “Laugh, cry, but understand”
says Spinoza because to understand is to transcend. Why and how were colonized the souls in which
Palestinian people lived throughout thousands of years? Why were expelled Muslim Arab Palestinian
people from their land? Why are they living in refugee camps in Palestine, Egypt, Jordan, Syria and
Lebanon and exposed to nonstop terrorism, massacre and atrocity? What sort of
an entity is this Zionist state, what is the raison d’etre and the mission of it?

Why do all these colonialist/imperialist countries [US, EU and their satellites] not only support mas-
sacres of Israel but also encourage it? What did/does the Turkish state do while people in Turkey are
blasting and damning massacres, feeling ashamed of and sorrow from Zionist atrocity? What do the
explanations done by the government circles mean? How many people in Turkey are aware of the
“strategic coalition” between Israel and Turkey? Struggling for its dignity along the decades, testing
humaneness of the humanity and reproaching for this crime against humanity how can this tragedy
of Palestinian people end?

Zionism is a racist/chauvinist ideology and political movement. As is supposed and claimed, it is not
related to Judaism; therefore it does not represent and engage the majority of the Jews. It relies on a
                                series of religious legends and ideological discourses like select people,
                                promised lands, etc. Making references to the sacred texts is but an
                                ideological manipulation aimed at deceiving Christians and Jews, legiti-
                                mating and making them acknowledge colonialist/imperialist expansion,
                                ethnic cleansing, massacres. As a racist ideology Zionism is based upon
                                Xenophobia by nature and it is not possible for it to coexist with other
                                peoples. This denying/outraging/ignoring/destroying character of Zion-
                                ism underlies its continuous attacks, massacres and ethnic cleansing
                                carried out against Palestinian people. There have been the colonialist/
                                imperialist powers (led by the British) and their interests behind the
                                project of gathering all Jews dispersed over the world into one state. In
                                other words, Zionism is a racist political movement instrumentalized for
                                imperialist purposes. All kind massacres of Zionist regime are assumed
to be ‘self defense’, criticism against Zionism is assumed to be anti-Semitism and resistance against
Zionism is assumed to be terror. Thereby Zionist ideology and movement both can get a sort of im-
munity and the possibility to execute an ideological terror. Zionism can not exist without an enemy
and if required it creates an imaginary one. Zionists were the strongest allies and supporters of Nazis
from Hitler’s coming into power until the end of the imperialist war. There was a sharing of inter-
est between racist Nazis and racist Zionists. That is why Nazis, who principally aimed at forming a
pure Aryan race and establishing a world over which Aryans rule, wanted to get rid of ‘impure races’,
primarily Jews, and expel them from Germany. Racist Zionists who wanted to establish a state in Pal-
estine and who assumed themselves as a select nation were trying every method
to collapse Jews in Germany. Nevertheless, when Hitler came into power, the
proportion of Jews in Germany joined in Zionist movement was only about 5%.
95% of them chose to sustain their lives in Germany by preserving their religion              7
and culture and struggling for their civil rights by staying there… That is why “anti-Semitics will be
the best allies of us” said writer and journalist Theodore Herlz, the leading figure of Zionism.

The ethnic cleansing, exiles and continuous state terrorism carried out in Palestine was supported by
a series of lies, superstitions and ideological discourses. The first lie is that Palestinians left their land
voluntarily. The second is the one expressed with the slogan “for a land without a people, for a people
without land”. The third is that the establishment of the Zionist Israeli state is a civilizing attempt.
The fourth is related to the characteristics ascribed to the Palestinian people; according to this, Arabs
are a group that is “primitive, leftout, plunderer, predatory, bandit, burglar, deceiver, destroyer, includ-
ing people terrorizing Jews, etc.”... Identification of the other in such a way is always sine qua non/
unchanged principle of imperialism… Therefore Palestinians must definitely have been expelled from
                                Palestine… The fifth is that the Zionist state was established in the
                                consequence of a noble liberation war carried out against Arab threat.
                                That the Palestinians left their land voluntarily is a nonsense of the
                                Zionists, so it does not need to be treated. Coming to the discourse of
                                “a land without a people”, during the period in which Palestinian soils
                                were not colonized by Zionists and in 1917 when the region was broken
                                off from the Ottoman Empire and dominated by the British, more than
                                one million people with a 98% Muslim population were living there. The
                                remaining 2% consisted of Christian and Jewish minorities. They were
                                leading a relatively prosperous life. Nowadays, a population of 4 mil-
                                lion lives in the camps in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Gaza and West Bank
                                as refugees. This population in these camps is the children of 800.000
                                Palestinians expelled from their land soon before the declaration of the
Zionist state in May 14, 1948 and after… However, according to Israeli Zionist official historians,
this population of 800.000 left their land upon the call of Arab states… Have you ever seen a people
who left its homeland upon such a call? Contrary was the situation indeed, Palestinians were exiled
from their homeland as a result of the imposed war and massacres… Considering that Israeli state
was established in the wake of a “national liberation war”, this can be a matter of joke just for black

The region “Middle East”, as is called by the colonialist/imperialist Europeans,
had always been a geostrategically important area during colonialist era. How-
ever, it is so clear why all powers holding hegemonic goals had always preten-                   9
sions over the area along the history not only during colonialist/capitalist era. It was written in some
British journals of the day, even in 1840, that the British intended to establish a European state in
the Middle East. As regards the Zionist program presented to Cecil Rhodes, the famous theorist and
builder of British imperialism, Theodor Herzl [1860–1904], the spiritual leader of Zionism, had said:
“As is known my program is a colonialist program. I’d like to request you to exert your authority in
supporting the program.” In the book Jewish State published in 1895, he said: “We will establish a
sort of barricade there [in Palestine] for Europe against Asia; we will become the outpost of civiliza-
tion against barbarism”. In fact, a Zionist state refers to the ‘Western state’ in the Middle East. That
is to say, the Zionist Israel in the Muslim Arab soil is the satellite of imperialism/colonialism sprawled
in the region. Zionist Israel implies the US, the EU and their extensions in the Middle East. The Zion-
ist regime is given unconditional support because it is inevitably necessary for imperialist interests.
                                 Disregarding these analyses is only useful for deceiving those who
                                 made these analyses and the fools. It is worthless to make such analy-
                                 ses without implementing the concepts of colonialism and imperialism.
                                 The Zionist regime prevents the formation of an Arab union by creat-
                                 ing a spiral of continuous conflicts, wars, terror and violence; it makes
                                 indigenous people unable to stand on their own feet and blocks the
                                 democratization and thereby enables autocratic, corrupt, US-henchmen
                                 Arab regimes to sustain their power and makes the region tangible to
                                 any attack, etc. Maintaining the status quo in this manner enables the
                                 imperialism to loutishly plunder the sources in the region. Therefore it is
                                 a big illusion to perceive the support given to the Zionist regime by the
                                 US, the EU and their satellites only as the manipulation of Zionist lob-
                                 bies. In final analysis, the existence of Zionist lobbies is not independent
of imperialism. These supporters of Zionist state and the ones behind Zionist lobbies alike are within
the same circles. In the case of that the Zionist Israeli state becomes a threat in terms of imperialist
interests and turns to be dysfunctional, Zionist lobbies would no longer be taken into consideration.
That is why the existence of Zionist state cannot be possible without continuous warfare, conflict,
violence, ethnic cleansing and colonial expansion [According to the legend, the promised land ex-
tends from Nile to Euphrates and thus that means there still are lots of land to be conquered…]. It is
clear that the Zionist regime is a regime that is exactly nourished with bloodshed. It is a weird regime
whose reason of existence depends on killing extensively, shedding more and more blood, destroying,
spreading terror and fear. It is a known fact that living organisms are in need of
water; it seems however as if the Zionist regime is an exception that is feeding
itself with blood, that is to say, it is a sort of dying/killing spiral… Since this is
the situation, we have to ask the question as it needs to be. Some naïve people               11
who are ignorant of the real face of the situation are complaining by asking why the US, Europe and
United Nations do not take action in order to stop the Zionist regime… If they have had the knowl-
edge of that Israeli state is the US and Europe indeed, they would not have had such nonsense and
delusions. Also they would have comprehended that why the Zionist regime experiment the state of
the art weapons on Palestinian women and children… Considering the UN, it is an organization who
was established by imperialist powers, particularly the US, in order to maintain the status quo shaped
in the wake of the war between second imperialists. The principal mission of this organization is to
carry on an ideological mystification and to deceive common people by referring to some so-called
noble, universal and humanist conceptualizations

and by instrumentalizing some humanitarian [and so-called international] organizations (FAO, WHO,
                            UNICEF, UNESCO, etc.). Isn’t it a useless effort to have expectations for
                            the good of Palestinian people from an organization, in reality, which
                            was created in order to do nothing but illude the world and do gate-
                            keeping of imperialist interests? In addition to this there has been a
                            discourse of international society for long time. What sort of an entity
                            is this international society and who are the members of it? Who do
                            you think are included in this ‘society’? Are, for example, Nigeria, Syria,
                            Colombia, Thailand, etc. included in it? International society is but the
                            other name of collective imperialism and group of the US, Western Eu-
                            rope and their satellites. With no doubt, this discourse has been ideo-
                            logically created to blur the world agenda…

                               Turkey had become the first Muslim country to recognize the Zion-
ist state [28 March 1949] following its foundation. From then on Turkey sided itself with the West
whenever there arouse a conflict between Muslim Arabs and imperialists, turning its face to imperial-
ism and turning its back to the Arab nation. Apparently, it is impossible to hold an anti-imperialist
political stand in the face of such conflicts while being a satellite of the West and a NATO ally at the
same time. The only possible way to receive support from the US is to get on well with the Zionist re-
gime. There has been ‘nothing new in the western front’ following past 60 years… You can not stand
against the cruelty and extreme brutality of the Zionist regime without standing against imperialism!
But some are defending this embarrassing ‘preference’ hiding behind Turkey’s ‘national interests’ and
also presenting it as a ‘diplomatic success’… In this article it is unnecessary to
go into the nonsense of ‘national interest’. It is enough to say that something
like “national interest” could not/cannot exist within a society in which there
are classes; and discourses as such only belong to a category of the sovereign            13
ideology. How significant a “national interest of Turkey” is it, justifying being silent and nonreactive
against brutality, ethnic cleansing and massacres? A common illusive impression has been created in
the way that as if there is a war going on between Palestinian people and Israel, and it is possible to
solve this problem with a peaceful permanent solution… However, current situation there cannot be
expressed by utilizing the concept of “peace”. Peace describes a situation when there is a “compro-
mise” between two states or two sides at the end of a war. But considering the situation in Palestine,
“peace” is not a convenient concept. What is going on there is a colonialist/imperialist occupation,
siege and an exile from homeland; therefore the solution only becomes possible by removal of impe-
rialist/colonialist powers from the region. In brief, the situation can only be expressed with the words
“national liberation”… This type of ideological manipulations originates from a view through which
the attacker and the attacked are seen as “equal” or having the same conditions… Can the way you
                               are defending yourself to survive be identified as violence and terror
                               when you are attacked to be murdered? Regarding peace, “They create a
                               desert rightfully and later call it peace” says Roman historian Tacitus…

                             The last attack of the Zionist regime and scenes of violence are leaving
                             deep impacts in the hearts and conscience of the people and rightfully
                             invoke reactions. It cannot be denied that the situation crucially and
                             primarily requires emergent aid as much as and as soon as possible,
                             yet this should not be seen enough. If your state is one of the biggest
                             supporters of the Zionist regime, then you need to do something differ-
                             ent than and beyond emergent aid. If complaining, crying, blasting, etc.
                             would have had any positive impact, wouldn’t it have already ended the
                             61-year [including the period before] occupation, massacre and barba-

Turkey is the strategic ally of Israel; that means there is ‘a deep compromise’ between them since one
of the meanings of alliance is compromise and only the ones that are similar to each other can com-
promise… Turkey is the most important purchaser of Israel’s weapons; Israeli air forces are completing
a certain part of their training in Turkey. What are your eyetears meant to be if you are not setting
against the education of those who carry their training of murdering in your
own land and who murder children, women, Palestinian resisters and people of
all age? These crocodile tears are shed for hiding hypocrisy and dishonesty, isn’t
it? Why and against whom is there a “Security and Confidentiality Agreement”              15
between Turkey and Israel? Actually the agreements between the two states don’t consist of only
“Strategic Alliance”, “Security and Confidentiality Agreement”, “Military Training and Collaboration
Agreement”. There are lots of agreements in different fields: from tourism to telecommunication, from
Free Trade Agreement to Defense Industry Collaboration Agreement, etc…

Palestinian people’s getting out of this hundred-year violence and brutality and sustaining an inde-
pendent and free life with its dignity becomes possible with a determined, consistent anti-capitalist,
anti-colonial and anti-imperialist struggle which will be collectively carried out by all Middle Eastern
peoples -particularly Muslim/Arab peoples- including Turkey. Yet, real liberation of Palestinian people
not only means to realize its own independence but also liberation of all peoples living in the region.
That is why it is an inevitable step to go into an international solidarity and collaboration. First of all,
                               it is necessary to end the power of corrupt autocratic Arab regimes in
                               the region instrumentalized by imperialism; it is clear that the enemy
                               to be overcome is not only imperialism, imperialism cannot sovereign
                               without internal compradors… To put it briefly, there is an identification
                               of internal-external enemy in this case. For that very reason, we have to
                               take concrete steps in the way of establishing an international solidarity
                               and collaboration rather than developing mere discourses about it. We
                               must behave radically. It is said that being radical means to treat the
                               problems fundamentally. Otherwise, we will continue to be responsible
                               for the atrocity going on there. It seems reasonable to end this article
                               with a passage of a poem by Hanoch Levin in remembrance of the chil-
                               dren killed in Palestine.

Dear father,
When you stand over my grave
Old and tired and very much alone
And you see how my body is interred in the earth -ask my forgiveness,
My father.
