Through the manipulation of the narrative naive readers are not aware that the widespread militarization on display in Ferguson has absolutely nothing to do with Israel as the Falestians and their advocates would like you to think. Instead it is part of a more recent trend that began three decades ago with the introduction of the “war on drugs” and escalated with the “war on terror”. The counterinsurgency-like tactics deployed against the people of Ferguson by civilian police officers more closely resemble combat soldiers in Afghanistan than domestic cops.This cop-to-soldier transformation has been facilitated by the US government through mechanisms like the Pentagon’s 1033 or military surplus program, which funnels excess military gear to law enforcement agencies across the country. The program’s motto: ”From warfighter to crimefighter.”In 2013 alone, the program showered US police departments with nearly $450 million worth of military equipment.
In her article she writes:
“Since the killing of eighteen-year-old Michael Brown by
police in Ferguson last weekend, the people of Missouri have been subjected to a military-style crackdown by a squadron of local police departments dressed like combat soldiers. This has prompted residents to liken the conditions on the ground in Ferguson to the Israeli military occupation of Ferguson .” Palestine
“At least two of the four law enforcement agencies that were deployed in Ferguson up until Thursday evening — the St. Louis County Police Department and the St. Louis Police Department — received training from Israeli security forces in recent years.”
In line with the vicious lies and accusations, a student organization called “NU Divest” from Northwestern University produced a highly inflammatory video—obviously intended to implicate Israel in the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner—included this testimonial:
“I support NU Divest because the New York and the St.Louis police department were both trained by the Israeli military. If black lives matter, then Palestinian lives must also.”And yes, ad nauseum as usual, the lie goes on because few take the time to verify the truth of what these habitual liars say. So I was puzzled as to where the ISM and the pro-Falestinians were getting the link between "supposed Israeli training" and the Missouri police. In my research I came across a very hideous YouTube video by a weirdo by the name of Alex Jones of "infowars.com" who has this link to Press TV which is an Iranian Government sponsored news channel. His broadcasts appear to be based on the teachings of William Luther Pierce III who was a prominent American white nationalist. He was one of the most influential ideologues of the white nationalist movement for some 30 years before his death. He has comments which are from David Dukes who was a former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan,as well. The links to the video stem from a real sicko by the name of John Todd who is pushing some really disgustingly sick Satanic highly anti-Jewish innuendos and conspiracy theories, that to say the least are off the scale in their level of hatred. No wonder about that though since on the Wikipedia page it states:
"Army medical reports referred to Todd suffering from; "emotional instability with pseudologica phantastica" (compulsive lying), difficulty in telling reality from fantasy, homicidal threats he had made on another, false suicide reports, and a severe personality disturbance."
Another Facebook posting shared by NFL Detroit Lions player Reggie Bush whose poster reads;
Ah yes Reggie ye old colonialism and Israel = Apartheid Lie eh?
And furthermore according to Rania Khalek; "as the situation
Even then there were replies to Ms Bargouti -who Tweeted her advice -see picture on the left, that were not in the spirit of universal love between the Haters Of Israel.
They continue the lie by insinuating that
It reminds me of the rantings and ravings -frothing at the mouth lunatic hatred - by the "famous" author Alice Walker of the novel The Color Purple, which we all may remember was was made into a movie by no less than Steven Spielberg.
So since her days of friendship with Steven, Alice Walker has crossed the line in her over the edge complete meltdown in her virulent hatred of all things associated with Israel. She went from plain fervent anti-Zionist to rabid anti-Semitism (though she denies she is an anti-Semite because Falestinians are Semites too), the question remains why anyone would take her ludicrously ignorant rants about the Israeli-Falestinian conflict seriously.
Alan Dershowitz spoke about the insanity of Walker's total negation and hatred of Israel and Jews in his article, "Alice Walker's crass bigotry exposed" here are a few gems of his observation of my candidate for the Looney Tunes Alice Walker totally "Off the wall" assumptions:
- According to
Walker, Rachel "aka Pancake" Corrie was “murdered,” just like three civil rights workers who were kidnapped, tortured and murdered in cold blood.
- According to
Walker, there are roads that are for “Jews only,” rather than for Israelis of all religions and ethnicities.
- According to
Walker, the big ugly security wall runs all through Israeland the Palestinian territories - “it is everywhere” - rather than through roughly 5% of those areas. Moreover, she suggests that the wall was put up solely to colonize the West Bank, and not to protect Israelis from terrorism.
- According to
Walker, the Turkish flotilla terrorists who attacked the Israeli sailors who had boarded their ship were “assassinated” and “massacre[d].”
- According to
Walker, no rockets were ever fired at Israeli civilians from Gazaand Israel’s attacks against Gazawere unprovoked and constitute “genocide.”
- According to Walker, there has never been a more brutal occupation in the history of the world.According to Walker, what Israel is doing to the Palestinians is the equivalent of what Hitler did to the Jews.According to Walker (as quoted by the Wiesenthal Center) Israel may someday launch a nuclear attack against the United States, "because the United States and Israel, working together have done terrible things to others [and] it is the nature of thieves to eventually have a grand falling out."
We the undersigned Palestinian individuals and groups express our solidarity with the family of Michael Brown, a young unarmed black man gunned down by police on August 9th in
. We wish to express our support and solidarity with the people of Ferguson, Missouri Fergusonwho have taken their struggle to the street, facing a militarized police occupation.
From all factions and sectors of our dislocated society, we send you our commitment to stand with you in your hour of pain and time of struggle against the oppression that continues to target our black brothers and sisters in nearly every aspect of their lives.
We understand your moral outrage. We empathize with your hurt and anger. We understand the impulse to rebel against the infrastructure of a racist capitalist system that systematically pushes you to the margins of humanity.
And we stand with you.
We recognize the disregard and disrespect for black bodies and black life endemic to the supremacist system that rules the land with wanton brutality. Your struggles through the ages have been an inspiration to us as we fight our own battles for basic human dignities. We continue to find inspiration and strength from your struggles through the ages and your revolutionary leaders, like Malcolm X, Huey Newton, Kwame Ture, Angela Davis, Fred Hampton, Bobby Seale and others.
We honor the life of Michael Brown, cut short less than a week before he was due to begin university. And we honor the far too many more killed in similar circumstances, motivated by racism and contempt for black life: Ezell Ford, John Crawford, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, Tarika Wilson, Malcolm Ferguson, Renisha McBride, Amadou Diallo, Yvette Smith, Oscar Grant, Sean Bell, Kathryn Johnston, Rekia Boyd and too many others to count.
With a Black Power fist in the air, we salute the people of
and join in your demands for justice. Ferguson
Well this is exactly what the KGB fostered among the revolutionary groups throughout the world during the Cold War. They invited many young revolutionaries to come and study and become indoctrinated at The Peoples' Friendship University of Russia in Moscow. The University served as a base of indoctrination and training of potential “freedom fighters” from the Third World. More specialized training in terrorism was provided at locations in Baku, Odessa, Simferopol, and Tashkent. The illustrious alumni include Mahmoud Abba, the highly infamous Ilich Ramírez Sánchez, also known as Carlos the Jackal, Anna Vasil'yevna Chapman and Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei
Hmm, so now upon reading the words of this "master’s degree student Rana Baker" I could not help but notice the catch phrases of the Anarchist movement, which are synonymous to those used by the members of the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), the purveyors of the BDS -Boycott Divest Sanction Haters of Israel and Zionism fan group.
Let us look closer at these "catch" phrases to understand just how these "Anarchists" are attempt to cause an even greater threat to American society.
The phrases we see in MS Baker's article show incitement to commit further violence:
- facing a militarized police occupation.
- struggle against the oppression
- a racist capitalist system
- rules the land with wanton brutality
- killed in similar circumstances
It’s hard to exaggerate the gut-level loathing that we proud Jewish-Israelis, who are hardened Zionists, have for the the relentless demonization of Israel by the Falestinians and their myopic ignorant trolls and bamboozled minions.
These Haters of Israel and Zionism in their incessant campaign of abject blind hatred have consistently failed to dislodge the truth and historical facts, so they resort to throwing tantrums and labeling Israel as a racist, apartheid state.
Here is a video of a speech by Martin Luther King speaking out about bigotry towards Jews and Catholics. Not about Israel or Zionism, but when people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews and they are talking anti-Semitism!
"I would still take a stand against anti-Semitism because it is wrong, it's unjust and it's evil!" MLK
It is totally enraging to see the delusional ignorant trolls who are eager and ready to vilify something that you stood for personally and venerated as a youth, our Jewish stand for Civil Rights in America. Here is a very important and enlightening video response by Dumisani Washington to those who would divide the honored position that we Jews had in our relations with the Black community in America.
"The "Black for Palestine" movement dates back almost to the independence of the Jewish State. By the 1960's, the PLO's Yasser Arafat had reached out to militants like Black Panther, Eldridge Cleaver, and convinced them to "stand in solidarity with their Arab brothers against the evil, European imperialist Zionists." The entire narrative was built on lies and distortions (the majority of Jews who inhabited or returned to Israel were of Middle Eastern descent), and sought to hide the fact that Arab invaders had not only stolen North Africa and the Middle East, but were/are still enslaving Africans to this day.
This movement has always been, and will continue to be fringe. It has never been taken seriously by any significant portion of the African-American community. To date some 1,100 (supposedly) Black "activists" have signed the "Black for Palestine" petition that was launched last week. That number is .0024% of the Black population in America -- not even counting Africans on the Continent and in the Diaspora. Fringe.
So, with all due respect to Dr. Cornel West, Talib Kweli, and groups like the UCLA Afrikan Student Union, your views on this matter are wrong and shameful. You're standing in solidarity with people who have subjugated Africans for 1,400 years and counting. As a result, you have made yourselves irrelevant."

And of course ad nauseum all this camejust when we thought there might be one problem that could not be blamed on
