The Left

Waiting to hear

Will the western Marxist-Leninists who over the decades have expressed solidarity with the Marxist-Leninist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine have anything to say about the PFLP sending a clueless 16-year-old boy to blow up himself and innocent people in an open market in Tel Aviv?

Will they be moved by the words of his mother: “It’s immoral to send someone so young”?

Or is morality a bourgeois construct designed to frustrate the struggles of oppressed peoples? Or whatever crap they’re using to defend the indefensible these days?
