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.

  30. i am a nigerian and i have now started to support israel lately for many reasons. i used to be a critic on israel thanks to the media and the radical leftists. but when i digged through the arab-israeli conflict i found out that this so-called palestinian cause is a fake and only used to support radical islamic agenda. i for one will always support israel's democracy and its identity right to exist. sadly the world influenced by the aggressive political left have made blinded the whole world to view israel as the "bad guy" and the arabs as "the victims" even as far as to view the conflict as the biggest problem wheras the biggest problem (even a human being with a half brain will realise) in the middle east is something called radical islam (militant, or political in the sense).
    chloe i want you to ask this 2 questions to pro-palestinians: a) if israel ceased to exist will it bring peace and normalcy to the region as some religious sects in the middle east are killing themselves because some god? b) now that the palestinians are fighting for a state, why where they not fighting for it when they where under the jordanian rule before 1948? i guarantee you that they will not even speak further except to call you names.

  31. I'm wondering if she read The Haj, also by Leon Uris and does a GREAT job of laying out the so-called "right of return" issue, which this whole bruhaha is about. Also Michener wrote a Readers Digest article praising Mohammed, (Why I don't' know.), but everybody should read his book The Source. He also deals a little bit with the right of return and does a good job of it. Too bad it didn't turn out in the positive way that he'd hoped. (Thank you Arafat.)

    Here's a few posers related to the "right of return":

    What year did the nation of Palestine come into existance?
    What were its national borders and what year did it cease to exist?
    What currency did the nation of Palestine use and why is there no history of it?
    Name one leader to the “nation of Palestine” prior to Yasser Arafat.

    SHORT LIST (See Full list “THE Books” Facebook page).
    The Haj by Leon Uris.
    The Source by James Michener.
    Muslim Mafia by Gaubatz and Sperry.
    Because They Hate by Brigitte Gabriel.
    “Slavery, Terrorism and Islam” and “Holocaust in Rwanda” by Peter Hammond.

    Ivory Towers On Sand: The Failure of Middle Eastern Studies in America by Martin Kramer.

  32. Watch: Watch how much crap she's going to get from CAIR and the MSA and the dhimmi idiots connected to them.

    God bless you Chloe. I live 60 miles from you on the Northshore and I am tired of hearing all of the negetive news from New Orleans. You are definitely a bright star in a dark place.

  37. Heather Cole says:

    Wow! Great job Chloe! Thank you!

  38. Shelley Luke Powell says:

    Super neat action !

  39. Coy Kehoe says:

    zionism is nothing more than communism… kind of cute shwanika holding up that disgusting flag though.

  40. Grace Acosta says:

    Chloe, please ignore the trolls in the comments. You know the truth, just keep to the path and don't let the haters get you down! Just as a few violent Blacks don't make all Blacks violent, a few racist, stupid, foolish commenters doesn't mean that all Jews think like this. Every barrel has it's bad apples.

  41. Carola Hume says:

    hi larry those 4 questions you posed are great. hope you don't mind but i'm going to use them whenever someone talks to me about the about the palestinian nation.

    Chloe, go live in the setlements and report back…Dr.King would be so disappointed in you!

    If she went to live in a "settlement," she would have the honor of meeting some of the bravest, most righteous people on earth. Go Chloe! A girl who isn't swallowing the propaganda laced Kool-Aid.

  45. John Esposito says:

    God Bless her. She gets it!

  46. Clara Rosenfeld says:

    My kind of story. Kudos to Chloe.

  47. Anastasia Klein says:

    how dare you, COY? Zionism is not Communism, but you, sir, are a nazi pig….Zionism is the dream of living in Israel. So shut your scum piehole. okay? do it.

  48. Anastasia Klein says:

    Thank you Chloe. Do not listen to the Nazi scum on this page. You are a heroine. A good girl doing good. A mitzvah. <3

  49. Anastasia Klein says:

    Ify Okafor you are also a piece of ignorant ****…."they" give the Ehiopians job training. You are confusing illegals with Ethiopian Jews. now you are the spade, Jade, you evade the truth….you ain't no Ruth…so shut your piehole too…..what a bunch of NAZIS here…you make me sick…Ify..what a great name…IFFY…..you rotten excuse for a human.

  50. Mary Hale says:

    Good for you Chloe..God bless you and keep you safe..I pray for the peace of Jerusalem..please pray for the elections on the 22nd of January..I pray the BiBi will return as the brilliant leader that he is..

  51. Barry Goldkind says:

    This is one Beautiful young woman, inside and out, who seeks the truth and lives in Zedek. G-D BLESS CHLOE.

  52. Barry Goldkind says:

    Yea? Explain this then: The Murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner. Case closed on your hate and antisemitism.

  53. Barry Goldkind says:

    Chloe would turn the other cheek at you two, she did her investigation and found that the lies you two spew are just that, lies. She also knows that Africans are being murdered by butchery, burning and crucifixion by the Islamists and that it is Israel that has been bringing many Africans to freedom and safety.

  54. Barry Goldkind says:

    They are already showing up here and posting.

  55. Barry Goldkind says:

    Coy is a typical Paulbot, they hate and blame Jews for everything.

  56. Coy Kehoe says:

    anastasia you nasty little shiksa… do something more productive when opening your mouth like you typically do in back seat of a compact car

  57. Appreciate the research and learning the truth. More importantly, following Eli Wiesels words of not being indifferent and doing something. Good for you. You have a bright future

  58. Be encouraged, Chloé. There are other African-Americans who stand with you in standing with Israel; who embrace truth rather than the lies and distortions of the media and anti-Zionists. Would like to speak with you soon. http://beyondtherivers.wordpress.com/from-beyond-the-rivers-of-ethiopia-zeph-3-10/
