6/19 We Honor Ethel & Julius Rosenberg

by Socialist Thursday, Jun. 19, 2003 at 11:19 PM

The entire world honors the memory of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg on June 19, 2003, 50 years after the fascist US government, aided by their Zionist collaborators, murdered these two outstanding socialists and defenders of the workingclass to perpetrate fascism at home and war abroad. By defending their innocence and resisting fascism, the Rosenbergs literally broke the back of the Cold War. In these terrible times, with fascists attempting to make the USA as reactionary as Nazi Germany, their example is a lesson to us all.

The entire world honors the memory of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg on June 19, 2003, 50 years after the fascist US government, aided by their Zionist collaborators, murdered these two outstanding socialists and defenders of the workingclass to perpetrate fascism at home and war abroad. By defending their innocence and resisting fascism, the Rosenbergs literally broke the back of the Cold War. In these terrible times, with fascists attempting to make the USA as reactionary as Nazi Germany, their example is a lesson to us all.

Ethel and Julius Rosenberg and their co-defendant, Morton Sobell, were falsely accused of conspiracy to commit atomic espionage, for which the Rosenbergs were executed and Sobell spent 18 years in prison. As the famous labor lawyer, Clarence Darrow once said, conspiracy charges should have been thrown out with the thumbscrew and the rack as they exact the maximum penalty without proving an overt act.

If you are unaware of the facts of the Rosenberg-Sobell case, please go to the library and read the Judgment of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg by John Wexley; Atom Spy Hoax by William Rubens; Invitation to an Inquest by Walter and Miriam Schneir; We are Your Sons: The Legacy of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg by Michael and Robert Meeropol; Rights on Trial: The Odyssey of a People’s Lawyer by Arthur Kinoy; On Doing Time by Morton Sobell; Citizen Cohn by Nicholas von Hoffman and Saying No to Power (Chapt 17: “We Bury the Rosenbergs) by William Mandel.

After reading any, much less all of these books, it will be very clear that the Rosenbergs and Sobell did not commit any crime whatsoever.


It is well understood today that there was no atomic secret. At the time, Nobel Prize winning scientists like Harold Urey and J. Robert Oppenheimer stated that there was no atomic secret. Further, the Soviet Union, which as an American ally during World War 2, 5 short years before the Rosenbergs and Sobell were arrested, had received 30,000 copies of the “Official Report of the United States Government on Atomic Energy Development for Military Purposes” issued in 1945, the last year of World War 2. Professionally trained scientists could understand the structure of the bomb by studying this book.

Since it was clear that there was no atomic secret, the fascist US government’s carrying out the execution of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, orphaning their two young sons who were ages 6 and 10 at the time of the execution, was a political frame-up in the post-World War 2 era, which was similar to the frame-up of Nicola Sacco and BartolomeoVanzetti in the 1920s, during the anti-communist terror of that post-World War 1 era.

Fifty years after Sacco and Vanzetti were murdered, there was some official reconciliation with the fact that they were innocent. No such reconciliation exists for the Rosenbergs or Sobell for two reasons. The first is that this country continues to reek of ant-Semitism. The second is the collaboration of the Zionists with the US government in the murder of the Rosenbergs, just as they continue to collaborate with the outright fascist Pres. Bush today.

As to the anti-Semitism, Julius Rosenberg put it correctly when he stated the frame-up of the Rosenbergs and Sobell was an attempt to make Jew, Communist and traitor synonymous so as to perpetrate the anti-Communist Korean War abroad and anti-labor terror at home, which anti-labor terror destroyed the militancy of the labor unions that existed in the 1930s and 1940s, and from which labor has yet to recover. Communists of all kinds were active labor organizers in the 1930s and 1940s.

As to the anti-Communist Zionists, it should be remembered that the judge in the case, Irving Kaufman, and the prosecutors Roy Cohn and Irving Saypol were all Jewish and were all one anti-Communist prosecution team as Judge Kaufman was not impartial. The Jewish community was divided by class, as are all other communities, and the judge and prosecution represented the capitalist class, while the Rosenbergs and Sobell came from and defended the workingclass. Roy Cohn is best remembered as counsel for the anti-Communist US Senate Subcommittee on Investigations, one of many the anti-Communist witchhunting government committees and agencies of the 1950s.

One Zionist organization, the Anti-Defamation League, which today is known as an anti-Communist spy organization, gave information in 1947 to the US Civil Service Commission on individuals it believed were communist or linked to communists, which information was used by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) and the FBI. The whole sordid story was originally printed in the Middle East Labor Bulletin of Spring 1993 and may be found at:

The Zionists are proud anti-Communists and as such, had no problem collaborating with the anti-Communists Nazi German government, to save their own skins, by selling out the lives of the rest of the Jewish community in what is known as The Transfer Agreement. For the history of the Zionist-Nazi collaboration, see:

(1) Lenni Brenner's Zionism in the Age of Dictators at:


(2) Ralph Schoenman’s Hidden History of Zionism at:

Today, the Zionists continue to collaborate with the American ruling class, currently led by an outright fascist, George Bush, Jr., whose family wealth came directly from the exploitation of slave labor at Auschwitz. See the World Socialist Website, June 5, 2003, “The Holocaust and the Bush Family Fortune,” at :


Today, the nightmare of the 1950s has returned with the Democrat-Republican passage of the fascist anti-Patriot Act and the Homeland Gestapo Act, the illegal imprisonment of prisoners of war at Guantanamo with no access to lawyer, no charges brought and no public trial, and the illegal, indefinite and secret imprisonment of American citizens with no charges, no access to lawyers and no public trials.

The excuse was the Reichstag Fire of 9/11/01, which like the burning of the German congressional building, the Reichstag, by the Nazis, was an inside job perpetrated by the US military and the CIA, that is, the US government, to promote fascism at home and war abroad, so as to maximize the profits of the capitalist class. It was the CIA’s Operation Northwoods realized (See Body of Secrets by James Bamford on the story of Operation Northwoods.) There were no attacks from the outside; there were no hijackers on those planes as they were on automatic pilot, the cell phone calls were staged; the towers in New York were brought down with construction explosives and the Pentagon was hit by an American guided missile. The evidence is clearly stated all over the Internet and in such excellent books as:

The War on Freedom by Nafeez Mosaddez Ahmed;

Painful Questions by Eric Hufschmid (See or;

Pentagate and 9/11: The Big Lie, both by Thierry Meyssan.

Around the world, all socialists, labor organizers, civil libertarians, supporters of the Palestinian Liberation Struggle, and opponents of the death penalty in all countries including Cuba, will be honoring the memory of the Rosenbergs on June 19, 2003. Featured at the New York commemoration will be Harry Belafonte, Susan Sarandon, Peter Yarrow (formerly of Peter, Paul & Mary), Holly Near, Ronnie Gilbert, Pete Seeger, Martin Espada, Mazi Jamal, Suemyra Shah, Suheir Hamad, Emily Miller and Bill T. Jones. See:

Long Live the Memory of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg.
