International Socialist League

The International Socialist League (ISL) is a revolutionary Bolshevik group working in Israel / Occupied Palestine, struggling to build a revolutionary workers’ party and for a world socialist revolution.

We are Internationalists and anti-Zionists, participating in struggles against Zionist apartheid, for a Palestinian state from the river to the sea, and for the right of return. Ex-Israeli Jews who would wish to live as equals in this state would be able to, and the Jewish part of the working class which will join the revolutionary struggle will become part of the new ruling class in the transitional society to socialism, in which classes will gradually disappear until they eventually do under communism, the highest stage of socialism.

We struggle against the entire range of Zionist attempts to expropriate and expatriate the Palestinians, including: land theft, gentrification, “Judaisation,” the siege over Gaza, and, obviously, any direct attacks by the army and settlers in the West Bank.

However, our involvement in these democratic struggles does not come at the expense of the revolutionary politics of the conscious working class. We recognize that in this epoch, the epoch of world capitalist decay, the bourgeoisie and petty-bourgeoisie cannot take a consistent anti-imperialist position, as the betrayals by the PLO and Hamas in the struggle against Zionism show. While the Palestinian Authority today serves openly as a police force for Zionism in the West Bank, Hamas periodically signals its willingness to accept this role, but the Zionists, as of yet, would not allow the organization to do so.

While we welcome any victory of the anti-imperialist struggle, we stress that even genuine national liberation – part of the democratic revolution – cannot be achieved without a revolutionary victory of the working class, opening the way to a socialist society.

We reject the reformist theory of two-stage revolution, first democratic and then socialist. Our program is based on the theory of Permanent Revolution, formulated by Trotsky and adopted by Lenin in 1917. The Russian revolution was a proletarian revolution and did not establish a democratic dictatorship of workers and peasants like Lenin thought up to 1917. Counter-revolutionary Stalinism is the force which destroyed the October Revolution and established itself as a bureaucratic centrist obstacle to socialism from 1928 onwards. Until 1935, it was possible to overcome Stalinism without a political revolution. However, in that year, as the Popular Front policy showed, Stalinism became counterrevolutionary, and from then on, a revolution was necessary to remove it and save the first workers’ state in history.
