NY Times Uses MLK Jr’s Birthday To Push Hatred Of Israel

We’ve long known that hatred if Israel and love of Palestinians, which often turns into anti-Jew sentiment, has been rampant throughout the Democratic Party. Most are wise to keep it on the down-low, mostly yammering about a “2 state solution”, and 1967 borders and stuff. But, on college campuses, it has been quite visible, with college kids taking the side of the Palestinians, who are the ones who start the violence with bombings and such of civilians.

But, now that Democrats have elected some anti-Israel, Pro-Palestinian, anti-Jew folks to Congress, such as Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, as well as ones in state legislatures, their true colors are starting to appear, especially among the younger ones. We’ve seen the push for a Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions movement among elected Democrats. They NY Times itself noted that all the new Democrats were testing the party’s support for Israel. The Women’s March is full of Israel and Jew hatred from the top, their support for people like Louis Farrakahn, which embolden’s people like Michelle Goldberg to write this

Time to Break the Silence on Palestine

On April 4, 1967, exactly one year before his assassination, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stepped up to the lectern at the Riverside Church in Manhattan. The United States had been in active combat in Vietnam for two years and tens of thousands of people had been killed, including some 10,000 American troops. The political establishment — from left to right — backed the war, and more than 400,000 American service members were in Vietnam, their lives on the line.

Many of King’s strongest allies urged him to remain silent about the war or at least to soft-pedal any criticism. They knew that if he told the whole truth about the unjust and disastrous war he would be falsely labeled a Communist, suffer retaliation and severe backlash, alienate supporters and threaten the fragile progress of the civil rights movement.

King rejected all the well-meaning advice and said, “I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight because my conscience leaves me no other choice.” Quoting a statement by the Clergy and Laymen Concerned About Vietnam, he said, “A time comes when silence is betrayal” and added, “that time has come for us in relation to Vietnam.”

It was a lonely, moral stance. And it cost him. But it set an example of what is required of us if we are to honor our deepest values in times of crisis, even when silence would better serve our personal interests or the communities and causes we hold most dear. It’s what I think about when I go over the excuses and rationalizations that have kept me largely silent on one of the great moral challenges of our time: the crisis in Israel-Palestine.

I have not been alone. Until very recently, the entire Congress has remained mostly silent on the human rights nightmare that has unfolded in the occupied territories. Our elected representatives, who operate in a political environment where Israel’s political lobby holds well-documented power, have consistently minimized and deflected criticism of the State of Israel, even as it has grown more emboldened in its occupation of Palestinian territory and adopted some practices reminiscent of apartheid in South Africa and Jim Crow segregation in the United States.

All we need is a picture in the article of a money-grubbing, hooked nosed Jew to complete Michelle’s picture.

Many civil rights activists and organizations have remained silent as well, not because they lack concern or sympathy for the Palestinian people, but because they fear loss of funding from foundations, and false charges of anti-Semitism. They worry, as I once did, that their important social justice work will be compromised or discredited by smear campaigns.

Just because one is anti-Israel doesn’t make them a Jew hater. But, as we’ve witnessed, the former quickly becomes the latter. When they start sympathizing with the terrorists within the Palestinian territories, along with nations like Iran, all of whom want to wipe Israel off the map, it becomes anti-Semitism.

We must not tolerate Israel’s refusal even to discuss the right of Palestinian refugees to return to their homes, as prescribed by United Nations resolutions, and we ought to question the U.S. government funds that have supported multiple hostilities and thousands of civilian casualties in Gaza, as well as the $38 billion the U.S. government has pledged in military support to Israel.

This is a call for Palestinians to be given back the nation of Israel, as I’ve read in other more overt Israel/Jew hatred material. The “1 state solution.”

Goldberg spends a lot of time slamming Israel while attempting to make sure her Jew hatred doesn’t show, as well as saying that we don’t know what Martin Luther King, Jr. would actually say, but, she’s sure it would be against Israel.

Even in Congress, change is on the horizon. For the first time, two sitting members, Representatives Ilhan Omar, Democrat of Minnesota, and Rashida Tlaib, Democrat of Michigan, publicly support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement. In 2017, Representative Betty McCollum, Democrat of Minnesota, introduced a resolution to ensure that no U.S. military aid went to support Israel’s juvenile military detention system. Israel regularly prosecutes Palestinian children detainees in the occupied territories in military court.

And this is why the attacks on Israel and Jews will increase among Democrats. It will become more visible among the Leftist media and the newer elected Democrats. Most of the old school elected Democrats are supporters of Israel and Jew. As they fade away, the Dem party will be as hardcore anti-Israel/Jew as Iran.

    This is true. Criticizing Israel’s actions toward the residents of Gaza and the West Bank is not anti-Semitism. It’s become a strategy to equate criticism of Israel’s actions as anti-Semitism, obviously to shut down the criticism. It’s like calling support of Israel’s actions Islamophobia, or Muslim hatred. Are there any anti-Muslim sentiments in the GOP?

    Michelle Goldberg is Jewish.

    A minor point:

    The article you linked was not written by Michelle Goldberg but by Michelle Alexander:

    You should correct your misinformation.

    Alexander writes:

    There seems to be increased understanding that criticism of the policies and practices of the Israeli government is not, in itself, anti-Semitic.

    This is not to say that anti-Semitism is not real. Neo-Nazism is resurging in Germany within a growing anti-immigrant movement. Anti-Semitic incidents in the United States rose 57 percent in 2017, and many of us are still mourning what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Jewish people in American history. We must be mindful in this climate that, while criticism of Israel is not inherently anti-Semitic, it can slide there.

    Why is the current wave of right-wing nationalism often accompanied by anti-Semitism and neoNazis? Why would you use a Hitler-mustached icon to support your article? Do you think all Michelles support exterminating Jews?

    It’s been observed that conservatives seem to love Israel but hate Jews.

      Yep, go out and celebrate MLK bday by porking some other man’s wife. He did. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_cool.gif

      Dr King is best known for the line, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character”.

      Jeffery does the exact opposite as he proved yesterday.

      We can only hope he has a thought on Martin Luther King Day.

    The Israelis have brought this on themselves.

    Why? Because if Israel had wished to keep the land it captured in the 1967 war, they should have immediately expelled every last Arab from Judea, Samaria and Gaza, and annexed the territory. That would have been unbelievably harsh, but it would have been better than what we have today. The descendants of the expelled Arabs would be living in Egypt, in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, hardly nice places, but they wouldn’t be living where they aren’t wanted, and Israel would have shortened, more defensible borders and far fewer security problems.

    The Israelis are a great people, but they have proven to be piss-poor conquerors. What was possible in 1967-1968 is impossible today. Instead, Israeli policy was to make life uncomfortable for the Arabs in the occupied territories, thinking that they’d just emigrate. Considering the Jewish experience under the Third Reich, where they didn’t all try to emigrate between 1933 and early 1939 — which would have been more difficult, because so many other nations had closed their borders to the Jews — they should have known that most of the Arabs would not try to leave. Jordan and Syria, in particular, didn’t want them, and Egypt is a long trek from the Gaza Strip.
