Black Lives Matter Delegation in Israel to Protest With Palestinian Activists Against Israel

11

A Black Lives Matter delegation arrived from the U.S. in Israel last week to protest with Palestinian activists against Israel in the Samarian village of Bilin, near Ramallah.

“Delegates from the Movement for Black Lives join organizers and activists in Bil’in, a territory in occupied Palestine where resisters are engaged in nonviolent protest. In the fight for dignity, justice and freedom, the Movement for Black Lives is committed to the global shared struggle of oppressed people, namely the people of occupied Palestine and other indigenous communities who for decades have resisted the occupation of their land, the ethnic cleansing of their people, and the erasure of their history and experiences,” the BLM movement wrote in a Facebook post on Friday.

The BLM movement claims that police violence against African Americans is the same as Israeli police and military forces actions against Palestinians.

“In this violent, political climate, it is urgent that we make clear the connection between violence inflicted on Black people globally that is encouraged and permitted by the state and the profiling, harm, and genocide funded by the United States and perpetrated by Zionist vigilantes and the Israeli Defense Forces on Palestinian people,” the BLM movement stated.

“I would not make that comparison at all, the histories are significantly different,” Dr. Robert W. Taylor, a professor of Criminology and Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Dallas and the director of the school’s Justice Administration and Leadership Program, recently told JNS.org.

The BLM movement also supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.

  1. I see 10 uneducated Americans who’s lives don’t matter to any Arabs at all. In fact, they’ll be back stabbed by fellow “protesters” just watch.

    Oh, Arabs are being oppressed? Look at the Arabs who are making a living and acting like normal human beings.

  2. All the leftist causes are a one package, be it statism , socialism, toeiva ism, islamonazism, racism of both white and black flavor, environmentalism, feminism, etc. You support the leftists, you get the entire package.

  3. Indeed both peoples are equally indigenous to the country’s that they occupy, and would like to take over. They’ll probably both be equally successful. It seems like these took care of all the problems in there ancestral African jungles that all that is left is to help the Arab terrorists

  4. Why don’t these idiots just change the name of their organization to “Bigots Love Murderers”? They won’t even need to order bath towels with new initials.

  5. “The BLM movement also supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement.”

    I have been rather outspoken in the past against BLM because of their promotion of a convicted murderer of a police officer as a hero — their official web site had a quote from that murderer until just a few weeks ago. But I searched the web site using numerous terms and could not find anything about “Israel”, “Palestine”, or “BDS”. There was also nothing in the “Movement for Black Lives” platform.

    • “There was also nothing in the “Movement for Black Lives” platform.”

      Now there is. A false accusation of genocide. I am not surprised.

      The platform also includes some other questionable proposals like freeing all drug dealers from prison.
