We have already seen how Black Lives Matters activists have been expressing solidarity with the palestinian cause by identifying with palestinians, and in doing so have also demonstrated antisemitic views.
What may not be known to many is how there are also BLM activists who actually identify as the true Israelites.
Take this recent video for example, filmed at a recent Black Lives Matter March.
The guy who posted the video goes by the Hebrew-sounding name of Yisreael Ben Yehudah – although the name associated with his Facebook page is Tracy Allen.
But it is not enough for “Yisreal” to post how his people are the true Israelites – he needs to show how us Jews are somehow fakes. And in doing so posts outright Jew hatred.
Here is just a sample.
Needless to say, he seems batshit crazy.
He has also posted a number of videos of Black Hebrews from Dimona, Israel, including this one of Amare Stoudemire’s recent visit to the town.
This all raises the following questions for me:
- How pervasive are these antisemitic views within the Black Lives Matter movement?
- Are these also the views of the Black Hebrews who live in Israel? Do they also believe we are the synagogue of Satan?
