It is impossible for one to be internationalist without being a nationalist. Internationalism is possible only when nationalism becomes a fact, i.e. when peoples belonging to different countries have organized themselves and are able to act as one man. It is not nationalism that is evil, it is the narrowness, selfishness, exclusiveness which is the bane of modern nations which is evil. Each wants to profit at the expense of, and rise on the ruin of, the other.

Indian nationalism has struck a different path. It wants to organize itself or to find full self-expression for the benefit and service of humanity at large … God having cast my lot in the midst of the people of India, I should be untrue to my Maker if I failed to serve them. If I do not know how to serve them I shall never know how to serve humanity. And I cannot possibly go wrong so long as I do not harm other nations in the act of serving my country.

Mahatma Gandhi (Young India, 18 June 1925, p211)

Entire US political establishment serving Israel: Analyst



February 21, 2016

The entire political establishment in the United States has been serving Israel for decades, an American scholar and political analyst says.

Dr. Kevin Barrett of Veterans Today, editor of We Are Not Charlie Hebdo and scholar of Arabic and Islamic studies, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Saturday while commenting on a statement by US Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, who has that if elected, he will ignore Palestinians and serve Israel.

Speaking at a town hall meeting in South Carolina on Friday night, Cruz said, “Let me tell you this: As president, I have no intention of being neutral. As president, I will be unapologetically alongside the nation of Israel.”

Cruz also condemned his Republican rival Donald Trump for saying he would remain neutral in the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Dr. Barrett said the news “should come as no surprise, because that’s precisely what virtually the entire political establishment here in the United States has been doing for many years, even for decades.”

“But that is really not very polite, certainly not to the Palestinians, who have been suffering from this Israeli expansionism, aggression and arguably genocide for so long, all paid for by American taxpayer dollars,” he added.

“Ted Cruz like the other Republican candidates for president seems to be in a competition with the others to see who can declare the most abject fealty and utter shameless subservience to the state of Israel — a foreign entity that is not even considered legitimate by any of its neighbors or virtually any of the people in the region,” the analyst stated.

“It’s a very bizarre situation. One is really at a loss in looking at history to try to find another situation in which the leaders and the prospective leaders of a great power were falling all over themselves, declaring that they were loyal to a smaller and extremely globally unpopular power across the seas. This is completely unprecedented,” he pointed out.

“And it’s not only unprecedented, it’s embarrassing. Just as an American I cannot believe that the people of this country have allowed their leaders to be hijacked by a foreign power in this way,” Dr. Barrett observed.
