To the Students for Justice in Palestine, a Letter From an Angry Black Woman
The Tablet ^ | Jul 28, 2014 | Chloe Valdary

Posted on 08/03/2014 10:06:29 AM PDT by nickcarraway

The student organization Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) is prominent on many college campuses, preaching a mantra of “Freeing Palestine.” It masquerades as though it were a civil rights group when it is not. Indeed, as an African-American, I am highly insulted that my people’s legacy is being pilfered for such a repugnant agenda. It is thus high time to expose its agenda and lay bare some of the fallacies they peddle.

• If you seek to promulgate the legacy of early Islamic colonialists who raped and pillaged the Middle East, subjugated the indigenous peoples living in the region, and foisted upon them a life of persecution and degradation—you do not get to claim the title of “Freedom Fighter.”

• If you support a racist doctrine of Arab supremacism and wish (as a corollary of that doctrine) to destroy the Jewish state, you do not get to claim that the prejudices you peddle are forms of legitimate “resistance.”

• If your heroes are clerics who sit in Gaza plotting the genocide of a people; who place their children on rooftops in the hopes they will get blown to bits; who heap praises upon their fellow gang members when they succeed in murdering Jewish school boys and bombing places of activity where Jews congregate—you do not get to claim that you are some Apollonian advocate of human virtue. You are not.

• If your activities include grieving over the woefully incompetent performance by Hamas rocketeers and the subsequent millions of Jewish souls who are still alive—whose children were not murdered by their rockets; whose limbs were not torn from them; and whose disembowelment did not come into fruition—you do not get to claim that you stand for justice. You profess to be irreproachable. You are categorically not.

• If your idea of a righteous cause entails targeting and intimidating Jewish students on campus, arrogating their history of exile-and-return and fashioning it in your own likeness you do not get to claim that you do so in the name of civil liberty and freedom of expression.

• You do not get to champion regimes that murder, torture, and persecute their own people, deliberately keep them impoverished, and embezzle billions of dollar from them—and claim you are “pro-Arab.” You are not.

• You do not get to champion a system wherein Jews are barred from purchasing land, traveling in certain areas, and living out such an existence merely because they are Jews—and claim that you are promoting equality for all. You do not get to enable that system by pushing a boycott of Jewish owned businesses, shops, and entities—and then claim that you are “against apartheid.” That is evil.

• You do not get to justify the calculated and deliberate bombings, beatings, and lynchings of Jewish men, women, and children by referring to such heinous occurrences as part of a noble “uprising” of the oppressed—that is racism. It is evil.

• You do not get to pretend as though you and Rosa Parks would have been great buddies in the 1960s. Rosa Parks was a real Freedom Fighter. Rosa Parks was a Zionist.

Coretta Scott King was a Zionist.

A. Phillip Randolph was a Zionist.

Bayard Rustin was a Zionist.

Count Basie was a Zionist.

Dr. Martin Luther King Sr. was a Zionist.

Indeed, they and many more men and women signed a letter in 1975 that stated: “We condemn the anti-Jewish blacklist. We have fought too long and too hard to root out discrimination from our land to sit idly while foreign interests import bigotry to America. Having suffered so greatly from such prejudice, we consider most repugnant the efforts by Arab states to use the economic power of their newly-acquired oil wealth to boycott business firms that deal with Israel or that have Jewish owners, directors, or executives, and to impose anti-Jewish preconditions for investments in this country.”

You see, my people have always been Zionists because my people have always stood for the freedom of the oppressed. So, you most certainly do not get to culturally appropriate my people’s history for your own. You do not have the right to invoke my people’s struggle for your shoddy purposes and you do not get to feign victimhood in our name. You do not have the right to slander my people’s good name and link your cause to that of Dr. King’s. Our two causes are diametrically opposed to each other.

Your cause is the antithesis of freedom. It has cost hundreds of thousands of lives of both Arabs and Jews. It has separated these peoples, and has fomented animosity between them. It has led to heartache, torment, death and destruction.

It is of course your prerogative to continue to utilize platitudes for your cause. You are entirely within your rights to chant words like “equality” “justice” and “freedom fighter.”

You can keep using those words for as long as you like. But I do not think you know what they mean.

All anybody has to know about Islam they can learn just by looking at these photos. "Freedom can go to hell".. I especially like to point that out to liberals. Liberals may take their freedom for granted, but I sure as hell do not, and if they want to push this crap on me well they can just go F themselves in the worst way.

The whole liberal- let’s turn muslims into victims movement is a such a pathetic sham. Muslims have never been victims of anything (except maybe their own fellow muslims). In fact if anything they are they are the ones who go around victimizing others.

What a joke.

The so-called “Palestine” is getting its justice right now. That’s the only justice for Palestine I support.

I do say, it would be interesting to see whole bunch of angry black women latch onto a bunch of angry muslims. The blacks have as much of an axe to grind with the muslims as anyone else not muslim, considering the amount of war and slavery in north Africa is due in part to arab muslims. The west abolished slavery, the muslims keep it alive in Africa to this very day.

In 2006, it was estimated that there were at least 20,000 members.[69] However, today the group has a wide influence in the African American community. The first Million Man March took place in Washington, D.C. 1995 and was followed later by another one in 2000

Malcolm X, Louis Farrakhan ...

Experts estimate that 30 percent of the 6 to 7 million Muslims in the U.S. are black, with only South Asians making up a larger number at 33 percent.

have a nice day!

I do know that. Whether they are muslim by choice, or by force, remains to be seen. Most of the muslim africans are a result of the arab muslim slave trade. One more reason why black people should fight back against this muslim tyranny.

Louis Farrakhan is NOT Muslim, he’s Nation of Islam, which is very different.

I’ve seen a lower number as a percentage of Muslims. That’s still only 1-5% of blacks being Muslim. That’s not this huge number. However, blacks make up a large percentage of converts to Islam.

“Coretta Scott King was a Zionist.

Amen, and Yes! All true Christians are Zionist. We look for a Jewish king to rule from Jerusalem. Paul said it well in Ephesians 2,

“11 Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” (which is done in the body by human hands)— 12 remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.....
19 Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, 20 built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.” (NIV)

We are fellow citizens of Israel, along with God’s chosen people. We stand upon the promised we have inherited by being grafted into the Tree of Abraham. Only Islam tries to pervert God’s promises by forcing the worship of the Babylonian moon god upon the world through threat and intimidation.

Valerie Jarret just issued a fatwa, sorry executive order, sorry, told her "boss" to. Chloe Valdary is no longer black. She's of the Clarence Thomas race.

Good editorial though.

I remember a column by a conservative black man in the NY Post, in response to a woman threatening to evict him from the black race. His closing:

“I resign from the black race in favor of the human race.”

Can’t recall his name. But that was strikingly well put.
