Black Lives Matter Takes Aim at Israel

Is there a distinction between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism?


Jewish groups have accused Black Lives Matter (BLM) of the "spread of hatred" after a series of tweets were posted to its official Twitter account regarding the Israel-Palestine conflict.

In the tweets, posted on June 28, BLM takes a firm anti-Zionist stance. It quotes the "fast-growing [United States] organization Jewish Voice for Peace on Zionism" in calling the State of Israel a "colonial" nation whose "far-right government" works to advance "Israel’s settler colonial pursuits."

BLM has long exhibited anti-Israel tendencies. It is part of the coalition group Movement for Black Lives, which claims that the State of Israel is an apartheid state that perpetrates "genocide" against the Palestinian people.

Israel is the only foreign country it criticizes.
