Wenn der Kampf gegen Diskriminierung in den USA zum Kampf gegen Israel wird

„The radical ‚Black Lives Matter‘ movement released a formal platform on Monday, singling out Israel for what it calls the ‚genocide‘ against Palestinian Arabs and ‚Israeli Apartheid‘. BLM, which emerged in the summer of 2013 following the acquittal of George Zimmerman, a Hispanic man who shot and killed an African American teenager in self-defense, aims to combat what it calls the ‚War on Black People‘. (…)

While the bulk of the BLM platform lambasts the United States for what it deems systemic racism, the document also singles out one foreign country for not only criticism, but specific policies. In fact, while there is scant reference to other countries in the document, Israel is mentioned 10 times, and ‚Palestine‘ 9 times. And while other countries are mentioned in passing, Israel is the only foreign country targeted by the platform. Israel is referred to as a ‚human rights violator‘ in the BLM platform, and indeed is the only country mentioned by name in that regard. (…) Last week a delegation representing BLM arrived in Israel and participated in an Arab demonstration in the Samarian village of Bilin.“
