Martin Luther King is throwing up in his grave.
Someone ought to give this ignorant bigot a history lesson.
MLK said: “Peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all our might to protect its right to exist, its territorial integrity. I see Israel, and never mind saying it, as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land almost can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security and that security must be a reality.”
Notably, these remarks occurred over 10 months after Israel’s victory in the Six Day War, when Israel, in a defensive war, gained control of Judea and Samaria (the so-called “West Bank”) from Jordan, after Jordan attacked Israel.
MLK also strongly rejected the entire “I am only anti-Zionist, not antisemitic” claptrap that so many Israel haters try to sell. In 1967, MLK was at an event in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a student asked him a question that referred derisively to Zionists. MLK’s immediate response: “When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking antisemitism!”
Ten years earlier, in 1957, MLK described the Middle East and North Africa (with the exception of Israel) as being “the last vestiges of feudalism.” And in 1967, the same year when MLK clearly expressed his understanding of how anti-Zionism is antisemitism, MLK said the Middle East and North Africa was controlled by “Arab feudal rulers” who “ignore the plight of their own people” and leave them “in a state of imposed poverty and backwardness.”
Member of far-left ‘Squad’ accuses pro-Israel lobby group of racism for not backing her over her ‘blatant anti-Israel positions.’
By World Israel News Staff, December 22, 2023:
A Democratic congresswoman has accused America’s largest pro-Israel lobby group of racism, citing its failure to support her as a result of her anti-Israel positions.
Summer Lee (D-PA), a former member of the Democratic Socialists of America and member of the far-left ‘Squad’ of progressive Democrats in the House of Representatives, took aim at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) recently, over the lobby group’s criticism of her stance vis-à-vis Israel.
Writing in a series of posts in a private Facebook group last month, Lee excoriated AIPAC for not endorsing her because of what the group called her “blatant anti-Israel positions,” Politico revealed.
“AIPAC is not supporting those Black candidates to be supportive of their community’s needs if the only issue it cares about is their own. That’s textbook racism actually.”
In another post, Lee said the pro-Israel lobby group constituted an “existential threat” to African Americans.
“Since no one else will say it, I will: AIPAC is an existential threat to the Black community and its right to self [determination].”
