In a move that surprised absolutely no-one who has been paying attention for the last two years: Black Lives Matter announced today their ‘Solidarity” with the Hamas Terrorists who have rained death and destruction upon the innocent civilians of Israel for the last ten days.
Black Lives Matter stands in solidarity with Palestinians. We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation. ( always have. And always will be ). #freepalestine

According to David J. Harris Jr.’s DJHJMedia.com,
BLM of Patterson, New Jersey announced: “Black Lives Matter Paterson condemns the ongoing violence against Palestinians in East Jerusalem by the state of Israel and stands in solidarity with those fighting occupation.
We as an organization believe in the freedom to worship and a life free from fear of expulsion and violence. The scenes coming out of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, where Israeli soldiers are using excessive force against Palestinian worshippers, harkens to our struggle against a repressive state apparatus.
BLM Paterson also condemns the current situation in the Sheikh Jarrah enclave where Israeli settlers are forcibly evicting residents from their ancestral homes.”
Black Lives Matter Doesn’t Support ‘Indigenous People’ Evidently
The ends must justify the means for the Black Lives Matter terror organization, the similarities are striking. How can a group that alleges to support indegenous people approve of Palestinian Arabs bombarding Jewish people in Judea?
Oh, did they miss that part of World history? Let’s bring them up to date shall we?
The Jewish people are distinctly indigenous to the region of Judea, were then captured by Egypt to be subsequently released from slavery, only to be captured by Babylon and then released back to their homeland again, only to be conquered by Rome, until the Romans too were conquered and driven out by the Persians.
After the Persians came the Byzantines, after the Byzantines came the Ummayad Caliphate. Then the Crusaders retook the region only to be ousted by the Egyptians under Saladin, the Crusaders would retake the city two more times until eventually the Ottomans took the holy land in 1517. The Ottomans would hold Israel until 1917 a total of four centuries until they lost WWI.
The Israelis aren’t ‘colonizers’ they were the colonized! By most reckonings they were expelled from their homeland at least 20 times throughout their history and nearly exterminated at least a dozen times.
In fact many (including David J. Harris Jr.) have observed that the African Diaspora have more in common with the Jewish people than almost any other culture except perhaps the native Americans of the US or the ‘First Nations’ of Canada. Yet consistently these groups align with the American left, who align with the sworn enemies of Israel.
Why? The left feeds on victimhood, and ever since their independence from the British Mandate in 1948 the Israeli people have refused to be victims.
