Introduction to “On the Necessity of Armed Struggle and
Refutation of the Theory of Survival” By George Habash:

The history of the Iranian peoples is rich in revolutionary struggles against colonialism and the various manifestations of foreign interference as well as struggle against the reactionary, dictatorial puppet regime and the comprador bourgeoisie. This is in addition to the struggle against the racial chauvinistic oppression- one of the forms of national and class oppression whose victims are the masses of different nationalities living under the reactionary regime of the Shah.

In this rich and long history of national and class struggle, the
Iranian people have had to make many precious sacrifices. This is a result of Iran’s rich endowment of natural resources and its important strategic position. Thus Iran has always attracted colonial powers, as demonstrated by the special attention given to it by the American imperialists. These powers are willing to give the regime any kind of assistance needed in order to safeguard the reactionary regime which serves to protect the savage plunder of Iran’s resources by the imperialist monopolies. In addition, the regime is used as a stooge for
the oppression of liberation movements in the Middle East, in the gulf, and in other Arab countries.

This regional and world-wide role of the struggle of the Iranian
people gives this struggle a broader role than that of a national
struggle. It is of great importance to all national liberation
movements in the entire region and especially to the Arab liberation movements. Therefore, the unity between the liberation struggle of the Iranian people and that of the Arab people has greater significance than its historical context. Thus, this unity is an international responsibility of national liberation movements from in the free and progressive future of the region.

This unity establishes a greater bond between brothers who have waged liberation struggles against the same enemy. that is, against American imperialism with its many reactionary. Zionist and racist bases.

Thus. we view the struggle of the Iranian people, especially its
revolutionary and progressive vanguards, on the level of a unified, strategic solidarity in this fateful struggle. This is natural since there exists a parallel unity. through the links between the reactionary stooges, amongst the puppet Shah’s regime, the aggressive military system of Zionism in our land Palestine, and the reactionary puppet Arab regimes. But, our revolutionary solidarity is a progressive one, existing among the people in struggle against this imperialist, racist and reactionary unity.

So far, we have considered the general unity between our people and the people of Iran; but specifically we consider the Organization of the Iranian People’s Fedayee Guerrillas as one of the most valuable revolutionary vanguards whose existence is necessitated by the struggle of the Iranian people at its present stage. We admire their heroic struggle, with its many sacrifices, as we appreciate the role they play in creating solidarity between the struggle of the Iranian people and that of the Arab people in general and the people of Palestine in
particular.

Now about the book that is in our hands, which without doubt is a discussion of a crucial problem. and about its heroic author, the martyred comrade Amir Parviz Pouyan, who decorated it with his own blood. It is of special importance to all national liberation movements specifically at that stage when faced with the choice of either armed struggle against the most savage kinds of repression, oppression and terror. or, as the martyred comrade calls it, the “theory of survival” faced with the same conditions.

In refuting the “survival theory,” the book goes deeper than its
progressive theoretical, scientific and practical level. It prepares the fundamental basis for the formation of a struggling Fedayee
vanguard to crush and conquer the obstacles of dictatorial repression as a means to remove the impediments of fear and horror blocking the path of the masses and to organize them into a revolutionary, popular organization or political party, the proletarian party.

If this book devotes most of its attention to the refutation of the
“theory of survival” and stresses the historical necessity of creating the vanguard under these conditions and is victorious in this task, it is because this is the subject that forms the essential core of the ideological discussions in Iran. It was necessary to give the same attention to the transition or growth of the vanguards of the struggle to the revolutionary party.

Undoubtedly, it was the martyrdom of comrade Pouyan which
delayed the discussion and elaboration of this subject. It is therefore the responsibility of other comrades inspired by this heritage which is sealed with blood to arm themselves with experience and to attempt to fulfill the above mentioned task. Performing this requires a Marxist-Leninist consciousness and should be based on the teaching experiences of the struggle of the people of Iran, its working class, and its struggling Fedayee vanguards.

In concluding this short introduction to this book, I am happy to
reaffirm on my behalf and in the name of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and in the name of the struggling people of Palestine that we have absolute and full faith in the victory of the Iranian people in their heroic struggle against the puppet, chauvinist and reactionary regime against all imperialist forces backing it, as we have faith in the victory of our people against our common imperialist. Zionist and reactionary enemy.

All of us today are struggling for the liberation of the whole region and the establishment of a democratic and progressive future for the region and for peace and true brotherhood as part of the free world, free of all exploitation and domination, a world of justice, peace and socialism.

WHAT YOU WON’T SEE ON MSNBC
It appears MSNBC is censoring the Senator Franken opposition to the Comcast/Time Warner Cable merger. Could it be… let’s see now… um, that Comcast owns them, so they are obligated to cover up for Comcast?
MSNBC has a reputation among liberals, for some reason, of being different from the other corporate media. One recalls the memos from their executives showing they fired Phil Donahue when his was their number one rated program, out of fear he might have a guest on opposing the invasion of Iraq (not that he did, just that he might). Can’t have an illegal invasion opposed, that would go against everything corporate media stand for.

I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.

Purple Amethyst has been highly esteemed throughout the ages for its stunning beauty and legendary powers to stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotions. It is a semi-precious stone in today’s classifications, but to the ancients it was a “Gem of Fire,” a Precious Stone worth, at times in history, as much as a Diamond. It has always been associated with February, the month the Romans dedicated to Neptune, their water-god, and is the traditional birthstone of that month. It is the stone of St. Valentine and faithful love, and signifies ecclesiastical dignity as the Bishop’s Stone. It carries the energy of fire and passion, creativity and spirituality, yet bears the logic of temperance and sobriety.

Oath Keepers Site Taken Offline after New Call to Stand at Bundy Ranch

*UPDATE*: A brand new message sent out by Stewart Rhodes as we were writing this says that the OathKeepers.org server, along with thousands of others, went down this morning caused by a problem at the data center that houses their site, and in the meantime, they are using an alternative site at oath-keepers.blogspot.com.

After sending out a new call to action and renewed call for all Oath Keepers to stand watch at the Bundy Ranch, the site OathKeepers.org has been taken offline.

In the urgent message, Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes wrote:

"NOTE: First, at the moment things are quiet here. 99% of the rumors on the internet are either blatantly false or wildly inaccurate. No strong presence of federal agents has been seen. Remnants of BLM’s recent sojourn here are still present, such as the lights they had put up at their "field-headquarters" and no doubt we are under surveillance of all kinds, but there is no overt, visible massing of federal law enforcement.

We are, however concerned that the domestic enemies of the Constitution that infest the federal government might try to take advantage of folks going home, and attempt to make a move on the Bundy family. We feel certain that they will want to try again at some point, perhaps in a different way, even perhaps by executing a dynamic entry raid to attempt to arrest the Bundys. And we have heard that this is being discussed, though I have not been able to directly confirm it. But it is a real risk.

Therefore, to prevent such a raid, or to at least throw a monkey wrench into any such plans and make it more difficult for them, we’re doing the following:

1: We are calling on all Oath Keepers who can possibly get here to come to the Bundy Ranch to serve as volunteers on an ongoing, rotating watch. That is not because there is any great emergency, but is a preventative measure - sort of like doing a rotation on the DMZ.



2: A rotating vigil of state legislators and current serving sheriffs at the ranch. This second part of our plan is a continuation of what we’ve already been doing. Oath Keepers helped facilitate a number of legislators from several Western States traveling to the Bundy Ranch this past week. Sheriff Mack’s Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA.org) helped ensure that some real-deal constitutional Sheriffs were also present on the side of the Bundy family.”

The timing of site’s take down is curious to say the least considering it falls not only on the heels of the Oath Keepers newest call to action, but also on news spilling out all over the place that there are mass graves for the Bundy’s cows killed by BLM and Senator Harry Reid’s corrupt multi-billion-dollar dealings with Chinese energy companies over the real reason they want the Bundy’s off that Nevada land in short order.

There are people concerned the situation unfolding out there could turn into the next Ruby Ridge or Waco Siege; however, those happened back in the sans Internet days, when the government and its puppet media could more easily shape the narrative however they wanted to. Now we have instant communication and when it comes to a situation like this, where the government is trying to run amok all over the Constitution, We the People have to keep talking.
