By the way, eight years later, in 1946, my path crossed that of Campbell Stephen again. I was in Britain, threatened with expul­ sion from the country. Chanie and I went to the House of Commons to ask him for help. He probably remembered me. ’ I started speak­ ing of the need to oppose imperialism and Zionism. ’ I though I must have mis­ understood as my grasp of the English language was not 100 percent. ’ She explained the meaning of his words— what a centrist muddle! But he did help me. In a very short time— over a couple of years— I moved from being a left wing Zionist to becoming a supporter of the Communist Party, ie a Stalinist, and then moving on to become a Trotskyist.

All the names mean rock or stone. While trying to build a Trotskyist organisation in Palestine in 1938 we made contact with the U S Trotskyist organisation, the Socialist Workers Party. It sent us a regular supply of Trotsky’s writings. This was of fantastic importance for us. But the going was very hard. By 1946 our membership reached nearly 30, of whom seven were Arabs, the rest Jews. It was very difficult, if not impossible, for Jewish mem­ bers to distribute the Arabic magazine or Arabic leaflets.

The existence of Zionism and the support the Jewish masses gave it enabled the Arab feudal reaction to divert anger against Zionism away from imperialism and the minority of capitalists among the Jewish community. Instead it was diverted towards an anti-Jewish channel of racial hatred.
