President Donald Trump declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel on December 6. This was celebrated by ‘israeli’ prime minister, Netanyahu who said, “this is a historic day” and he preceded to thank Trump.
Why would Israeli, prime minister Netanyahu look for Trump, a man who repeatedly uses the racial slur “pocahontas” in reference to Native Americans, to grant legitimacy to ‘israel’ choosing Jerusalem as its capital?
The reality is, both “israel” (stolen Palestine) and the “united states” (Stolen Turtle Island) are European settler colonies dedicated to the oppression of its indigenous populations and securing white supremacy in international affairs.
The racist behind the Balfour Declaration
‘Israel’ seeking legitimacy from white supremacists in efforts to secure land and territory is not a new phenomenon but traces back to ‘israel’s’ origins.
Just last November, ‘israeli’ prime minister Netanyahu visited London, for the celebration of the annual anniversary of the Balfour declaration.
At the ceremonies, Netanyahu stated, “I am doubtful that without it we would have received international recognition of our right on the land of Israel.” So integral was Arthur Balfour who signed the Balfour document leading to the creation of the state of “israel”, that Zionists often describe him as, “the man behind ‘israel’s’ right to exist.”
This is nothing to celebrate.
For the man responsible for ‘israel’s right to exist’ did not acknowledge the right of Black people to exist and supported mass-murders of Black people throughout Africa.
Balfour was a supporter of British colonist Cecil Rhodes, a man who mass-murdered Black people. So depraved was Arthur Balfour, that as Cecil Rhodes colonized and killed Black people throughout Southern Africa, Arthur Balfour described Cecil Rhodes as someone who was just, “extending the blessings of civilization.”
In a statement in support of Cecil Rhodes in the British Parliament, Balfour described Black people as being,”less intellectually and morally capable” than whites. Balfour further believed Black people could not govern themselves and should live forever under white colonial domination.
Early Zionists concurred with Balfour’s praise of Cecil Rhodes. In a private letter, Theodor Herzl, known as the father of Israel, lauds Cecil Rhodes approach to colonizing Black people in Africa and stated, “You, Mr Rhodes are a visionary.” Just what is visionary about killing and colonizing Black people? Yet,Herzl’s lauding of white supremacists do not stop there.
In Theodor Herzl: From Europe to Zion, Professor Vivian Liska, documents that ,”Herzl decided it was time to Meet King Leopold to secure a charter in Congo.”Leopold is directly responsible for the genocide of over 10 million Black people in the Congo. Instead of writing Leopold to condemn his genocide of Black people, Herzl sought to partake in his theft of Black people’s land. In a letter, Theodor Herzl writes,”The Congo State has land enough which we can use for our settlement.”
Jerusalem Does Not Belong To A White Supremacist Settler Colony
Given Theodore Herzl’s praise of Cecil Rhodes, ‘israel’s’ role as a state sponsor of anti-black terrorism should come as no surprise. In the critical book, The Israeli Connection: Whom Israel Arms, Dr. Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi writes that, “Israel was clearly committed to the survival of the white regime in Rhodesia, and helped it in substantial ways.”
Israel provided uzi machine guns and helicopters to the white settler government of Rhodesia which were used in counter insurgency operations against black people.
During the anti-apartheid struggle against South Africa, embargoes were placed on the apartheid regime. Polakow-Suransky writes that,”South Africa conveniently used Israel as an intermediary to buy arms from countries off limits to them because of embargoes.”
Under “israeli” occupation, the once Holy Land has become a center of white power, tyranny, and oppression.
What Black Freedom Fighters Say About ‘israel’.
In light of this, acclaimed Black author Alice Walker said the “Israeli”occupied territories of Palestine reminded her of growing up in the Jim Crow South and further states that that all of Israel is technically stolen Palestinian land.
Nelson Mandela said he would never forget the support of “israel” to the Apartheid Regime of South Africa, Winnie Mandela called “israel” an apartheid state, Nelson Mandela’s grandson said “israel’s” occupied territories were very similar to the checkpoint system of apartheid in South Africa, and Malcolm X said the Zionist argument to occupy Arab Palestine had no intelligent or legal basis in history.
None of these Black freedom fighters could find anything holy about “israel.” After all, the same group of colonist racists responsible for ‘israel’ emerging in the Middle East were the same group of white racists endorsing colonialism of Black people in Africa.
Free Jerusalem and all of Palestine from white colonial domination.
