National Zionism and Bundism - Not Contradictory but Complimentary

SWPE believes that every people has a right to live according to their own traditions, culture and ethnic predisposition.  This applies to the Jewish people as much as to every other.  The 'Jewish Question' is one which has plagued humanity for such a long time that it has become an obsession for Jews and non-Jews alike.

SWPE does not support the concept of Assimilation for any people into any other.  We oppose 'multi-culturalism' because we understand that it is the long-term objective of the global Ruling Class to destroy all vestiges of culture, sovereignty, nationhood and identity, which differentiate the peoples of the world.  We fully support global diversity and oppose the liberal Capitalist drive to create a world of slaves whose purpose is solely to create wealth for the self-appointed Masters.

The Jewish role in global Capitalism, especially Banking, has led many people to accuse the Jewish people as a whole of having an agenda to enslave non-Jews.  We do not accept this over-simple generalisation of the Jewish nation.  There are certainly Jewish elements in the Ruling Financial Oligarchy but there are also many non-Jews who exploit Jews and non-Jews in equal measure.  The religious Jews who believe in a Master Race ideology give credence to anti-Jewish propagandists, but the extent of influence of the supremacists in general Jewry is grossly exaggerated by many 'anti-Semites.'

SWPE support the concept of a Jewish State.  This is why we have a part of our ideology which we have chosen to call National Zionism.  It is Zionist insofar as it supports the right of the Jewish people to live amongst their own kind.  It is National Zionist because it opposes all imperialist tendencies, whether they are concerned with the financial exploitation of others, or as is the case with Israel and Palestine, with the theft of land which belongs to other people.

Historical support for Zionism from within Socialist circles include the following, which we gratefully quote from the site (full written permission was obtained from the author Randall Bytwerk and can be seen on request):

Solving the Jewish Question 

by Dr. Achim Gercke

All proposals that include a permanent presence, a permanent regulation of the Jews in Germany, do not solve the Jewish Question, for they do not eliminate the Jews from Germany (denn sie lösen die Juden nicht von Deutschland). And that is what we want to do. If the Jews are able to exploit their host peoples forever, they will remain a constant source of the open, destructive flame of Bolshevism, making it easy to repeatedly kindle it again, not to mention the political uncertainties resulting from disunity within the people and the danger to racial unity. Let us swear off such thinking forever, whether it results from poor thinking or evil intentions. To summarize, the state can and must focus on systematical elimination, on emigration.

If we destroy any organizational cooperation of the Jews and expel the dangerous, subversive Jewish agitators who show any signs of conspiratorial activities, the Jews will still have the synagogue, the rabbi, to shield them. If we support Zionist plans and attempt an international solution by establishing a homeland for the Jews, we will be able to solve the Jewish Question not only in Germany, but in Europe and the entire world. The entire world has an interest in such a solution, on eliminating this source of disorder, which constantly proceeds from Bolshevism. We must establish that clearly.

Perhaps the Jews will be able to become a nation, a people. That would require that Jewish workers, craftsmen, and settlers would develop from the Jewish population. If we regulate this plan, they we will create new foundations for such a settlement. Scattering the Jews to the four winds does not solve the Jewish Question, but rather makes it worse. A systematic program of settlement, therefore, is the best solution.

Plans and programs must have a goal pointing to the future. They may not be focused only on a temporarily unpleasant situation. A better future demands the systematic solution of the Jewish Question, not the organization of the Jews.

We must build our state without the Jews. They can be only stateless foreigners among us, with no legal permanent standing. Only so will Ahasver [the legendary wandering Jew] be forced to take up his walking stick again, and then turn it into axes and spades.

The End of Jewish Migration

by Dr. Johann von Leers
The only imaginable, positive solution that will finally resolve the Jewish problem in Europe and at the same time provide the real possibility of becoming a people, of becoming rooted to land, and even perhaps allowing its less valuable elements to be influenced by the more valuable elements, is a healthy region outside Europe. The Dutchman von Dinghene, in his book Vollzionismus, has proposed the island of Madagascar, but one could also imagine certain other suitable African or South American regions. On the one hand, such a settlement area must give the Jewish people a space where they can work productively, within the framework of providing space for peoples who now lack space. On the other hand, in those countries where the Jews are being separated from the Gentile population, the Jews will lose a large number of jobs. They must today be trained in work groups, receiving education in practical skills and agriculture so that they will be prepared to settle in this area. Those major Western European colonial powers, who are always worked up about the Jewish Question and its effects in Eastern and Central Europe, without however really seeing the connections, would perform a work not only of humanity, but also statesmanlike wisdom that would bring peace to the world and the solution of one of its most serious problems were they to make such a settlement area available. That would not only relieve Europe of the Jewish problem, but also enable Jewry to become a people.

Of course, there is a danger that such a Jewish settlement area would become a world-famous El Dorado of criminality, given the deep moral decay of a large part of Jewry. There will have to be a force to provide just and honest supervision. This would also be possible, and details could be worked out. The danger may not hinder a broad solution of the Jewish Question by resettling Jewry to an appropriate settlement area outside of Europe. We propose this to the world: Give Ahasver a homeland, as far as possible from us, but sufficient and attractive. If he makes of it a garden he may keep it, and will be protected. If, however, he makes of it a den of thieves, then one will keep him there. However, we must attempt a decent solution to this question. Those Jews who for centuries have recognized the battle of the Jewish Question are called to contribute to a real solution, those Jews who recognize that the dream of Jewish world domination has failed, and who are therefore ready to become a people among peoples. Those peoples among whom the question burns the hottest because of the Jewish masses among them area also called, particularly the major Western European colonial powers with vast possessions, for it cannot be permitted that a decent solution be prevented by cheap humanitarian slogans. With a single blow the Jewish question, which has always surfaced, can be resolved.

The above historical justifications of Zionism are arguments we applaud and share.  However, there is another alternative to Assimilation which we need to give our attention to.  This alternative is Bundism.  At first glance, Bundism seems to be a half-way house between Assimilation and Zionism, and therefore a step back towards multi-culturalism.  This, it is not.  SWPE believes that Bundism offers an immediate solution to our woes, whereas National Zionism offers a long-term and final solution to the woes of Jews and non-Jews.  A new writer for SWPE will highlight this important area of discussion in depth.  It is no exaggeration to state that a synthesis of National Zionism and Bundism may be the long sought after peaceful and just solution to the Jewish Question.
