    Last week, the Movement for Black Lives released a comprehensive and provocative platform called “A Vision for Black Lives: Policy Demands for Black Power, Freedom, and Justice.”

    Because of a sentence that ambiguously called for divestment from Israel, Jewish media outlets immediately declared the document A Vision for the Destruction of the Jewish State.

    Thankfully for us, the Vision for Black Lives is not about the Jews or the Jewish state. To assume the contrary is the height of arrogance.

    For those that bothered to read the platform itself, the paragraph in question clearly calls for the scaling back of U.S. military spending, an idea that’s shared by 32% of Americans. It is worth reading in full:

    How Did ‘Genocide’ Charge Against Israel End Up in Black Lives Matter Group’s Platform?

    Amid the nearly 40,000 words that make up the
    recent manifesto issued by a large coalition affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement, two have raised an outcry among mainstream Jewish organizations and leaders.

    Those two words, in a brief section about Israel, are “apartheid” and “genocide.”

    The August 1 manifesto, penned by a coalition of some 60 grassroots organizations known as the Movement for Black Lives, is largely focused on the group’s ideas for achieving racial justice for African Americans in the United States, not on Israel.

    There are sections calling for, among other things, free college educations and economic reparations for black people, and a long section, too, decrying U.S. policies toward a lengthy list of countries and peoples, from Libya, to Somalia, to Haiti and the Garifuna people of Central America, among others.

    But in the Jewish world, responses to descriptions of Israel in the foreign policy section held sway. And reaction was intense, following a period in which several mainstream organizations have supported the movement to varying degrees and many young activists have rallied to Black Lives Matter protests sparked by shocking videos of black men shot or abused by police.

    Always remember what Yeshuah Hamasiach said to Prophet Sol/Paul while he was in a meditation trance/deep prayer sister slalom :)

    "I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan."-The Book of Revelations 2:9
