The official Black Lives Matter organization declared its “solidarity” with Palestinians on Monday, effectively backing the Hamas terror organization in its ongoing conflict with Israel.
Writing on Twitter, BLM’s official account noted that it “always will be” partnered with the cause of “Palestinian liberation.”
“Black Lives Matter stands in solidarity with Palestinians. We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation. ( always have. And always will be ),” the organization said.
The sentiment echoes that of other progressive organizations and legislators, including Rep. Cori Bush (D-MO), a member of the progressive “squad” who spoke out against Israel both in a floor speech, where she praised a Palestinian-American activist affiliated with Black Lives Matter who previously called for the death of police officers, and on Twitter, where she compared the conflict in Gaza to riots in Ferguson, Missouri.
“The fight for Black lives and the fight for Palestinian liberation are interconnected. We oppose our money going to fund militarized policing, occupation, and systems of violent oppression and trauma. We are anti-war. We are anti-occupation. And we are anti-apartheid. Period,” Bush tweeted, citing her own House floor speech on the matter.
