This chapter promotes the national self-determination and statehood of the Arabs and the Jews in Palestine as progressive, in response to a recent call from the Soviet Union for a creation of a Jewish and an Arab state in Palestine. It then discusses the Communist factor in the emergence of the Jewish state, noting in particular the contributions of the American Communists. The chapter also addresses doubts among fellow Communists regarding Jewish statehood. By placing Israel within the broader struggle for peace and democracy, the chapter clarifies the difference between bourgeois nationalists and working-class internationalists, and places appropriate Communist actions within the latter category.

Keywords:   Palestine, statehood, national self-determination, Communism, working-class internationalism
