comment If Palestinians are an identifiable group, why did the PLO have an Egyptian as their leader?
Golda Meir was not Russian in appearance, mentality, language &c; an Arab born in Egypt to parents born in Palestine is an Egyptian Arab for all intents and purposes (except for the Arab propaganda).

"Soviet Union" is just another name for "Russian Empire". The continuity of the national narrative and philosophy between the two is overwhelming; the replacement of "Moscow is the 3rd Rome" with "Proletarians of the world, unite" is merely cosmetic.

@BaardKopperud: Romans renamed Judea to Palestine after they expelled the Jews specifically to destroy the connection between the people and the land (1984-style - there is nothing new under the sun), "Palestinian" meant a "Jew living in Palestine" until the Arabs hijacked the term in late 1960-ies.

@YannisRizos: yes, and those same organizations had legitimized Soviet occupation of the Baltic states and Chinese occupation of Tibet. These issues are, however, irrelevant to the question, so let us not start a comment war on that.

comment Did Stalin believe Israel would go communist?
@Oldcat: emigration was VERY strongly discouraged. Otherwise half the country would have left.

comment Did Stalin believe Israel would go communist?
@Oldcat: nope. Emigration means loss of human material. Communists never encouraged that, they just sent the undesirables to labor camps.

comment Would you explain 'development from bourgeois oppression'?
What exactly would you like to hear? Why Marx and his followers believed this crap 100 years ago? Or how his modern idiotic followers reinterpret every word you set in bold to make it believable today?
