At 'Zero Tolerance 4 Terror' rally in Times Square, counter demonstrators carry Pro-Palestinian Authority Arab signs reading, "No Justice, No Peace" -- a slogan stolen from recent Black rioters across the United States, taken originally from the mantra chanted by Black rioters in Crown Heights, Brooklyn in Aug. 1991.

The umbrella organization known as the “Movement for Black Lives” under which more than 50 political groups are operating, has just released its political agenda — a deeply anti-Semitic, pro-BDS document.

The group clearly targets the State of Israel while proclaiming the global unity of “Black” and “Brown” people as it describes far-left planks.

“The US military accounts for over 50 percent of discretionary federal spending, a total of 598.5 Billion dollars spent annually, as compared to 70 billion spent on education, 66 billion spent on healthcare, $63.2 billion spent on housing and 29.1 billion spent on social security and unemployment,” the movement writes in a detailed presentation on its website, under the section called “A Cut in US Military Expenditures and A Reallocation of those Funds to Invest in Domestic Infrastructure and Community Wellbeing.”

This manifesto is part of a list of issues that are placed under the “INVEST-DIVEST” section of the group’s “Platform” on the pulldown menu of the website. It comes just before the section called, “DEMANDS.”

“Approximately 3 billion dollars in US aid is allocated to Israel, a state that practices systematic discrimination and has maintained a military occupation of Palestine for decades,” the section continues.

“Together with aid to Egypt — Israel’s most important regional ally — this figure represents nearly 75 percent of all US aid dollars. As these figures demonstrate, resources and funds needed for reparations and for building a just and equitable society domestically are instead used to wage war against a majority of the world’s communities.

“In 2006, AFRICOM was established by the US government to expand US military presence on the continent under the claim of protecting the region against “terror” and “radical Islam”. In reality, this effort was designed to expand western colonial control over the region, its people and their resources. AFRICOM is a major example of U.S. empire and is a direct threat to global Black liberation.

“The US justifies and advances the global war on terror via its alliance with Israel and is complicit in the genocide taking place against the Palestinian people. The US requires Israel to use 75 percent of all the military aid it receives to buy US-made arms.

“Consequently, every year billions of dollars are funneled from US taxpayers to hundreds of arms corporations, who then wage lobbying campaigns pushing for even more foreign military aid. “The results of this policy are twofold: it not only diverts much needed funding from domestic education and social programs, but it makes US citizens complicit in the abuses committed by the Israeli government. “Israel is an apartheid state with over 50 laws on the books that sanction discrimination against the Palestinian people. Palestinian homes and land are routinely bulldozed to make way for illegal Israeli settlements.

“Israeli soldiers also regularly arrest and detain Palestinians as young as 4 years old without due process. Everyday, Palestinians are forced to walk through military checkpoints along the US-funded apartheid wall.

“The interlinked systems of white supremacy, imperialism, capitalism and patriarchy shape the violence we face. As oppressed people living in the US, the belly of global empire, we are in a critical position to build the necessary connections for a global liberation movement.

“Until we are able to overturn US imperialism, capitalism and white supremacy, our brothers and sisters around the world will continue to live in chains.

“Our struggle is strengthened by our connections to the resistance of peoples around the world fighting for their liberation. The Black radical tradition has always been rooted in igniting connection across the global south under the recognition that our liberation is intrinsically tied to the liberation of Black and Brown people around the world.

  1. But are white people persecuted because of the color of their skin? While it is obvious that all lives matter, sometimes we need to focus on the lives that are being mistreated. While we should boycott the movement because it’s anti-Semitic, it doesn’t mean we can’t support the idea that ‘black lives matter’. As Jews, we have the responsibility to help those in need. When someone is being persecuted, it is our Jewish obligation to help them.

  2. The AFL-CIO, NAACP, etc does not support the BDS Movement or Black Palestinian Solidarity.
    There are approx 1000 black supporters including the ridiculous Rev Al Sharpten, ‘60s black power Angela Davis; writer Cornel West; death row inmate Mumia Abu-Jamal, convicted in 1982 for the murder of a Philadelphia police officer; rapper Talib Kweli; and Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors.
    This group is attempting to target large corporations that do business with Israel. Their entire platform is based on lies.
    Perhaps they should re-evaluate: Take the money sent via Israel for Palestinian Humanitarian Aid that was diverted for years to Terrorists Hamas, building weapons, tunnels and feeding only the terrorists families in addition to keeping some money for themselves! Use that money for the purpose it was given. You can't build an anti Israel – American platform based on lies & deceit. Only the stupid will buy it.
    PS. If they want a Peaceful World (yeah right) recognize ALL Lives Matter.

  3. So Islam found an opportunity to manipulate the idiots believing that white cops target black man with a “black lives matter” title. it already spread in the Arab world, that our Police is racist, targeting black people. this movement is spread world wide, did you see in the UK? now we find out they are one with BDS. now I ask. When is the world going to realize what’s going on???

  4. Bunch of white hating anarchy loving bigots who are just looking for an escuse to loot the establishement and others people's hard work whike they spend the day listening to racist rap lyrics that incite to rape and murder.

  5. How nice for BLM to openly sign on to other openly terrorist and racist international organizations. ISIS supporters everywhere have a new friend they can count on. And BLM now has access to training camps throughout the Middle East.

  6. The majority of blacks are stupid, as well as anti-semitic. If it wasn't for Jew's and Jewish lawyers, they would still be living as in "JIm Crow" day's. They embrace Islam, even though it was Muslims who captured their ancestors in raiding parties and sold them to shipping merchants to be transported to the U.S. and sold again. Why did Israeli security, not stop them before theyboarded their flights? Who bought them their plane tickets? What happened at passport control, when they entered? Arrest and deport these "mamzerim".

  7. Right on Yaakov Zelig. They are either too stupid or too blind too see truth. Perhaps if they became part of the solution the States would not have to spend so much on their military. Either way, Israel stands and will continue to do so.
