Not the first time black suffering has been weaponized for anti-Semitism
Ferguson, Missouri is under siege. Swarms of activists, including a specific faction who couldn’t point out the “Show Me State” on a map, have converged on the St. Louis suburb under the guise of civil rights, but justice is not really a part of their agenda. Their real goal is to hijack a tragedy and turn it into a rallying cry via which to attack and delegitimize the Jewish State.
Historians, community leaders and political pundits can debate until blue in the face how Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would react to the Ferguson verdict and protests. But when it comes to Israel, the indisputable fact is that Dr. King was an adamant Zionist who said, “The whole world must see that Israel must exist and has a right to exist and is one of the great outposts of democracy in the world,” leaving little doubt that he would be appalled at the barrage of anti-Israel activity, and by those hijacking African Americans’ legitimate civil rights issues by comparing “Ferguson to Palestine” in order to score public opinion points.
