Proving that the Black Lives Matter movement is not about black American lives at all, but is a collection of anti-Western, anti-Israel, anti-capitalist radicals with global intentions, a BLM delegation arrived in Israel last week to promote “the fight for dignity, justice and freedom” against the Israeli "occupation" and the “genocide” of Palestinian Arabs.
Israel National News reports that the delegation participated in an anti-Israel protest in the Samarian village of Bilin, near Modi’in Illit. Two Arab protesters were arrested during the event.
In a Facebook post last Friday, the delegation from the movement that is supposedly about drawing attention to the black victims of racist police brutality expressed their broader true aims:
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.
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. Our collective oppression mandates that we work together across geography, language and culture to decry and organize an end to capitalistic, imperialist regimes.
Predictably, BLM also felt compelled to express its support for the anti-Israel BDS movement:
We commit to global struggle, solidarity, and support of the Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement to fight for freedom, justice and equality for Palestinian people and to end international support of the occupation.
Not a word about Palestinian terrorism. Just the standard lie that Israel is waging genocide against Palestinian Arabs, who are the fast-growing population in the world. That has to be the most inept genocide in human history.
