  This concerned the fight within the USA, the country of the aggressor, and 
all other countries. 

   The equivalent relating to the Israel problem would be not to demand 
"Negotiate with Hamas about the Gaza blockade!", but to demand 
--  "Lift the Gaza blockade unconditionally!", 
-- "Withdraw completely from the occupied parts of Palestine, conquered in 
--  "Let all refugees return unconditionally!"
--  "No more support for the colonial settler state of Israel!"
--  "No more arms for Israel!" 
  and other, similar, demands directed against the Israeli regime, and the USA 
or whatever imperialist power one happens to live under. 

   It does certainly not imply to demand the Palestinians to put "one state" 
onto their banners.
