JPost: The streets of “occupied” Palestine closely resemble the police brutality witnessed in Ferguson, Missouri in the United States, members of the Black Lives Matter group told The Jerusalem Post.
Ferguson, which became a hotbed of controversy after police fatally shot Michael Brown, resulted in a series of violent riots and protests. Police efforts to dispel the unrest raised even more questions, leading activists to question the use of police brutality – one of the issues at the core of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.
Going through checkpoints, seeing rubber bullets, reminds us what our comrades and some of us experienced in Ferguson [and] IDF soldiers totally remind me of the cops that brutalized [me],” Ash-lee Henderson, a regional organizer for Project South.”
Opinion: How incredible is that? I wonder if Ash-lee Henderson is aware that Jordan, Lebanon and 20 other countries were created specifically for the Arab/Persian peoples that were defeated and left without an empire after the Arabs allied with Germany in World War I.
Israel got only a sliver of the land, and the Arabs want that as well.
Or does he know that not one of those 22 nations will offer the Arabs living in Israel citizenship?
Or has he forgotten that Israel is the only country in the ME that offered the Arabs a state but it was turned down? Or that the Arab people could have had a state at any time in Israel but refuse to even acknowledge Israel’s right to exist?
The sad part of the BLM position on Israel is that at a time when God’s blessing is most needed to heal the racial hatred that is engulfing our nation, BLM is doing the exact opposite by embracing the lie that is Ferguson.
In Ezekiel 37:21-23 God said He would gather the children of Israel from among the nations. He would deliver and cleanse them and they would be His people and He would be their God.
That 2500 year old prophecy is in the process of fulfillment, and neither BLM or 1.6 billion Arabs are going to change that.
The blessings and curses of the Abrahamic Covenant still apply:
“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
