The Socialist Equality Party condemns the murderous assault on Gaza by the armed forces of Israel. What is unfolding is a calculated war crime against a defenceless population of 1.8 million Palestinians, who are trapped in the tiny strip of land of less than 200 square miles by the blockades imposed by the Zionist state in the north and east, and by the Egyptian regime in the south.
This bloodbath is being supported—including with finance and arms—by the United States, Britain, the European Union and the Arab bourgeois regimes. The United Nations is also entirely complicit in facilitating this atrocity.
Nowhere is the necessity for the international unity of the working class and the struggle for socialism as stark as in the Middle East. The solution to the catastrophe created by imperialism and the nation-state system is the abolition of both, through the establishment of the United Socialist States of the Middle East, as part of the fight for world socialist revolution.
We call on our readers and supporters to attend this meeting to discuss these crucial issues.
