Black Lives Matter Calls for Destruction of Israel

Black Lives Matter Calls for Destruction of Israel
By Daniel Greenfield

Just in case there was any doubt.

There was the Fairfax Pogrom by Black Lives Matter in Los Angeles.

Previously, the Movement for Black Lives had incorporated BDS into its platform. This time it’s BLM, as in the group created by Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi, and Alicia Garza, which put out a tweet reading, “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 ).”

Describing Jews in Israel as “settler colonialism” is really a call for the destruction of Israel.

Meanwhile, BLM has shown rather little interest in black lives… in Israel.

“You have black people in Palestine. You know who you have? You have my brother, Avera Mengistu, an Israeli black boy who crossed the border with Gaza six years ago without knowing what he was doing because he is mentally ill, and he is held captive by Hamas for the last six years,” Enav Baruch Mekonen said in a Tik Tok video.

Mekonen called on those who support the “Black Lives Matter” movement to take action and urge Hamas to free Ethiopian-Israeli Mengistu, who had been held captive since he crossed into the coastal enclave in September 2014.

“He is not an IDF soldier, he is not a terrorist, he is mentally ill and he’s being held by the Hamas, in Gaza,” she continued.

“Palestinians can you speak up? Can I hear you? Am I lying?” she is asking. “Why won’t you let him go? A mentally ill black boy?”

I presume he’s another example of “settler colonialism”.
