Moral vacuum at the New York Times … article filled with errors of commission, errors of omission and bias.
I am so grateful that I come from a multicultural background, and was raised in diversity. Martin Luther King Jr. is the highest example of what lens to see our world. It is so sad that today there is no dialogue, many people have on side and that’s it, and the easy target on both sides are Jewish people and Israel.
“When Dr. King defended Israel’s right to exist and to have secure borders in the late 1960’s, he was directly contradicting Black anti-Zionists who were verbally attacking Israel (and him); who supported (or ignored) terrorism and violence against Israeli civilians, and who dismissed Israeli Jews as colonizers and thieves.
Today, those detractors would be represented by people like Jeremiah (Jesus-was-a-Palestinian) Wright, Angela Davis, Alice Walker, Marc Lamont (from-the-River-to-the-Sea) Hill, Tamika (I-can’t-say-that-Israel-has-the-right-to-exist) Mallory, Rep. Hank (Jews-are-termites) Johnson, and Louis (Hitler-was-a-great-man) Farrakhan.
We cannot say what Dr. King would say if he were here today. He is not — and to purport to speak for him is beyond arrogant. What we can say, without doubt, is that — while he was here — he stood against the very type of anti-Semitism, Jew-hatred, and anti-Zionism spewed by some who claim to carry his mantle of justice.
They do not.
