BLM’s Misguided Sympathy for Hamas: Pastor Dumisani Washington
American Thought Leaders
"They have these torture facilities sometimes right next to school. The kids can hear the people being tortured in Gaza. These kinds of guys are screaming out because Hamas is torturing them. Where's BLM? Where are they when these types of human rights abuses happen on a daily basis?" In this episode, I sit down with Pastor Dumisani Washington, founder and CEO of the Institute for Black Solidarity with Israel, and the author of “Zionism and the Black Church.” "There's a great deal of spiritual Zionism within a traditional black church, meaning psalms, sermons, those types of things - a lot of parallels between the children of Israel and African Americans. Harriet Tubman, one of the most notable abolitionists was called Moses, right? The Negro spirituals from centuries back were almost always set in this whole redemption narrative - go down Moses, Joshua and the Battle of Jericho, all of these things..." says Pastor Washington. How did Black Lives Matter become anti-Israel? What is the origin of the terms “Palestine” and “Palestinian”? And how was the Soviet Union involved in creating the Palestinian National movement? "The PLO, for those who don't know, is a creation of the KGB," says Pastor Washington. "One of the KGB agents that defected explained that the liberation movements - many of them were crafted there, not for the help of people who may even have been legitimately struggling with whatever, but for the purpose of exploiting those people." Pastor Washington argues that Israel is the only nation in modern history that would immediately give up land for peace after winning a war, and believes that current protests are under the guise of justice and Palestinian human rights, but really about a hatred for Israel and a hatred for the Jewish people. "These rallies are just slogans, hashtags, and a complete demonization of Israel, which is why we're seeing attacks on Jewish people - on Jewish neighborhoods," says Pastor Washington.
