THE BIG IZZY

African-American Student Starts Pro-Israel Group in New Orleans

The research she did for her paper alarmed her, and Valdary resolved to do what she could to fight Jew-hatred.

She told The Jewish Press that she admires the Jewish community because “it is the Torah and Jewish values that have built the bedrock of Western civilization which is a fact that is too often understated.”  Her family, she said, is very supportive of her efforts.  In fact, it is to her parents that she points in ultimately explaining her commitment to Israel.  Valdary said, “I think I acquired my love for Israel and my desire to speak up for good from the values my parents instilled within me at an early age.”

Valdary ends the announcement for the January 28 event with, “‘We must,’” as Lincoln stated, “have faith that right makes might; and in that faith, let us to the end, dare to do our duty.”   Wow.  With focus and fortitude like that, Israel’s allies are greatly strengthened by the likes of Chloe’ Simone Valdary.

    Thank you so much to people like Chloe’ Simone Valdary. You give Jews like myself a reason to hope.

  2. Arie Rosenrauch says:

    I have to wonder how long before the members of the Church of the Holy Democrat start calling them "Uncle Toms," "bought and paid for by the Rotschilds," "racists," and "illiterate?"

  3. With much admiration and thanks, I want to acknowledge Chloe for the support that she is giving us.
    But most amazing is her courage and determination.
    Many well informed and dedicated Jewish students often shy away from the lonely, unpopular role of defending Israel and the Jewish people in a public forum.
    May she reap only blessings for her outspoken honesty and her courageous integrity.
    Thank you Chloe.

  4. Herman Rosen says:

    SHE IS ALSO A KNOCKOUT…GET HER A NICE JEWISH BOY.

  5. Thank you so much. It is a "pay it forward" moment as we Jews did so much to alleviate the discrimination during the Civil Rights movement. May we always work together to help each other.

  6. Good job Chloe; probably your efforts will somehow compensate for the African Americans in the US – especially in prisons – converting to Islam; and becoming automatically anti-Israel.

  8. Tim Upham says:

    Thank goodness this student was not poisoned by the extremism of Louis Farrakhan. Because she is following more the dream of Martin Luther King.

  9. Lori Lowenthal Marcus says:

    She won't even hear them if they do because her head is held high and well above the sewers where they dwell.

  10. As a Jew, , I am profoundly grateful for all righteous gentiles but special thanks to.
    Chloe who is standing for what is right. Good news and special people are too rare.

  11. Ellen Copeland Buchine says:

    Tremendous! I applaud you, Chloe.There is power in numbers; you may wish to align yourself with CUFI (Christians United for Israel) rather than re-inventing the wheel. Perhaps they will allow you to use their media/brochures, etc for your event. Kol Tov!

  22. Johnny Mortel says:

    Am all for Israel. I'm an Asian and I see this cause .

  23. Stephen Tannenbaum says:

    To both you and Ms. Valdary, I want to say a special thank you for not bowing to the popular pressure to condemn Israel and the Jews. When it would be so easy to join the crowd, people like you two take the time and trouble to discover the truth and, even more importantly, to stand up for it. THANK YOU!

  24. Ify Okafor says:

    Didn't Netanyahu say that Africans were threatening the Jewish state and wanted to boot them from Israel though? Didn't another politician in the same party call Blacks a "cancer?" I wonder how this young lady feels about that.

  25. Anonymous says:

    give me 10 Chloes and we can hold off 100 Peter Beinarts and the other miscreant anti israel trash.

  26. Kesha Warren says:

    Chloe probably thinks that Israeli hypocrisy and racism would not apply to her as she is an American. Let me be the first to state that it would.

  27. Ify Okafor says:

    They treat their own Ethiopian Jews unfairly. If she wasn't "pro-Israel" their society wouldn't see her anything more than a N*****.

  28. Kesha Warren says:

    Chloe you don't even know when you're being insulted. Sara no one needs to pay anything forward. Just as many Jews were pro-segregation as were against. In fact, many Jews became wealthy from it. The creator of Levitowns comes to mind. Anti-semetism is not the same as being critical of Israel.

  29. Kesha Warren says:

    Ify Okafor Indeed. Just read some of the comments here. The poor girl probably has an identity crisis. You live in one of the most violent cities in America, and you're worried about protecting one of the most violent countries in the world. #MessedUpPriorities.
