Israel’s brutal election war

With over 1,300 Palestinians killed, a third of them children, since the violence began on 27 December, thousands injured and widespread devastation of the already impoverished area, the Israeli assault on Gaza was marked by its extreme brutality.

On 15 January 1919, Rosa Luxemburg and Karl Liebknecht, the finest brains of the German working class and its most heroic figures, were brutally murdered by the bloodthirsty, defeated German military, backed to the hilt by the cowardly social-democratic leaders. On this important anniversary, PETER TAAFFE looks at Luxemburg’s inspirational, revolutionary legacy.
