If you’ve been following the news recently, you’ll know that terrorist organization, Hama, has started up attacks against Israel. They have fired 1000’s of rockets into Jerusalem and surrounding areas. This comes as violent riots have raged throughout Israeli cities.
Without Israel’s Iron Dome defense system, there would have been countless casualties across their nation. In order to quickly end the conflict, Israel has fired back, targeting Hamas installations in Palestinian territory.
Of course, you can guess which actions the left has condemned.
Liberals in this country were quick to ignore Palestine’s original and ongoing attacks. They only focused on Israel, our major ally in the region, demanding the international community would condemn them. Funny how leftists overlook how violent Palestine is against the one Jewish state in the world.
Now, a group known for its own violent actions in America is taking sides.
The Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization said Monday it stands in “solidarity with Palestinians,” adding it is working to end “settler colonialism.”
“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,” the organization wrote in a post on Twitter…
“Palestinians know what state violence, militarized policing, and occupation of their communities look like,” [BLM supporter Rep.] Bush said. [Source: Breitbart]
Don’t be fooled by the left’s support of Palestine, saying they simply want this group to be “free.” Israel has offered numerous peace agreements over the years, regularly extending an olive branch. But agreements that allow both groups to live in the region peacefully have always been rejected by Palestine. Instead, they riot in Jewish communities and fire rockets into their cities.
So, which group is pushing violence and hostility?
You have to wonder why BLM, a Marxist movement that wants to overthrow the U.S. government, cares about a conflict overseas at all?
Why does Black Lives Matter, who claims to only want to end racism in the U.S., care about a conflict between two groups thousands of miles away?
I can’t answer that question, except to say that BLM is just a political group seeking reasons to grab the spotlight. When they’re not burning down our cities, they applaud groups which burn down cities around the world. Their goal is not an America free of oppression or division, but just to make as much money and power as they can.
BLM says they are “committed to ending settler colonialism” and that include the nation of Israel. Interesting. Does that mean they’ll aid a terrorist group in their efforts to wipe out a peaceful people?
At least we know where their loyalties lie.
