 I think the arguments raised in regards to the position of Maavak
Sozialisti and the CWI on the Middle East can best be responded to  by
posting another statement, this one made by the CWI's International
Secretariat, on the situation in the Middle East. MS and the CWI recognise
the strong potential for revolutionary movements in the Arab world (implied
by the call for a Socialist confederation of the Middle East) which Nestor
believes I was underestimating in my comments. Similarly the CWI and Maavak
Sozialisti do not underestimate the gulf between Jewish and Palestinian
workers which may have been downplayed by my comments.

In any case, I think the following CWI statement better clarifies the CWI
and MS' position on these questions.
