International pressure, boycotts and sanctions on South Africa’s apartheid government eventually played a major role in ending its power. Now, in the name of the apartheid charge, the black leaders have convinced city councils, universities, churches and food co-ops in Europe and in the United States to boycott Israel’s goods. This horrible falsehood should not be dismissed as a bad joke. It can be a nightmare for the Jewish people. The apartheid ideology dictates that all the Israeli land must be returned to Islamic rule, by force if necessary.
Do these black leaders remind us of the NY Crown Heights pogrom? It erupted in August 1991, when a Jewish driver in the motorcade of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson accidently ran over Gavin Cato, a seven-year-old child of Guyanese immigrants. Rumors that the boy had been deliberately killed because of his black race quickly spread. Jews were beaten by Afro-American rioters and a Jew was stabbed to death. A band of Black radicals led by Al Sharpton, Sonny Carson and Alton Maddox, notorious for fomenting inter-group hatred, fanned the flames of anti-Semitism among their fellows. Sharpton organized marches through the Jewish third of the neighborhood saying “diamond dealers” (the Jews) were responsible for the death of Cato. That’s why in 2011 a Long Island panel on the riots, after a Jewish protest, was postponed for the inclusion of Sharpton.
Ten years after the Crown Heights pogrom, under the new black apartheid analogy, the World Conference against Racism, held by the United Nations in Durban in 2001, was transformed into a racist conference against Israel and the Jews. In the same city where President Mbeki held his festival of victory against the real apartheid, another death sentence was passed for the Jews. Several weeks later, the Second Intifada broke out in Israel. 1,500 Jewish civilians have since been killed in suicide attacks and shootings; 10,000 have been wounded. Many black leaders were involved in the Durban proto-Nazi saga.
In 1948, except for a few isolated voices, African American opinion was overwhelmingly sympathetic toward the new Jewish State. Ironically, Martin Luther King Jr. on March 25, 1968, addressed the Rabbinical Assembly, saying, “I see Israel as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security.” Now Martin Luther King’s horrible heirs are directing their anti-Semitic vendetta against the Israelis.
