New chain of actions ignite support to struggling Palestinians all over the globe

By Harsh Thakor* 

The anti-imperialist and anti-Zionist war has turned a spark into a prairie fire in the  Middle East, involving the guerrilla masses of Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and depending  on the intervention of the Iranian government, against Israel and Yankee imperialism, and its smaller partners, such as the United Kingdom.
The Palestinian cause, which before the Al-Aqsa Flood seemed to drifting towards complete alienation, with the collusion and connivance of the ruling classes of the Arab countries in the face of Zionism, resurrected in a spectacular fashion to counter the plans of Zionism, and gave a severe jolt to the strategic plans of Yankee imperialism. 
There is no doubt that Iran’s recent bombings against Yankee and Zionist military positions in Iraq gave a cutting edge in the Palestinian people’s war of national liberation. Iranian bombings now add to the Houthis’ daily operations in Yemen and the Red Sea, which have inflicted severe economic and political damage to the Zionist State of Israel.
Today, it is no longer only  about operations involving Palestine and Israel; the anti-imperialist and anti-Zionist war is engulfing throughout the Greater Middle East, involving the guerrilla masses of anti-imperialist movements in Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and being backed by the intervention  of the Iranian government, against Israel and Yankee imperialism, and its smaller partners, such as the United Kingdom.
The Palestinian national revolutionary forces have been able to calculatedly manipulate the contradictions in the arena of imperialism for the cause of liberation. For example, Iran’s actions have been of great value, not because the Iranian ruling classes goal to a free Palestine, but because the weakening of Israel is a strategic condition for the intensification of their bureaucratic-comprador capital. In addition, Russia has paved the way for   Iran’s initiatives to provide weapons and political and military support to some anti-imperialist groups in the region, because this makes way for  the Russians to set ablaze  the Middle East and pose a threat to the hegemony of  the Yankees.
A new chain of actions and mobilizations have ignited all over the globe  in support of the struggle of the Palestinian people and against the genocide perpetrated by the State of Israel and imperialism.

Regretful: Kapil Dev retired not leaving Indian cricket with integrity he upheld

By Harsh Thakor  Kapil Dev scaled heights as an entertainer and a player upholding the spirit of the game almost unparalleled in his era. In his time he was cricket’s ultimate mascot of sportsmanship On his day Kapil could dazzle in all departments to turn the tempo of game in the manner of a Tsunami breaking in. He radiated r energy, at a level rarely scaled in his era on a cricket field. Few ever blended aggression with artistry so comprehenisively. Although fast medium, he could be as daunting with the ball as the very best, with his crafty outswinger, offcutter, slower ball and ball that kicked from a good length. Inspite of bowling on docile tracks on the subcontinent, Kapil had 434 scalps, with virtually no assistance. I can never forget how he obtained pace and movement on flat pancakes, trapping the great Vivian Richards in Front or getting Geoff Boycott or Zaheer Abbas caught behind. No paceman carried the workload of his team’s bowling attack on his shoulders in his eras muc
