A graphic posted to the group’s social media accounts shows an image of a paraglider with a Palestinian flag pointing out of his parachute – similar to the terrorists who paraglided into an Israeli music festival to viciously murder innocent attendees.
As has been the case in most major US cities, pro-Palestinian protestors gathered Monday on the streets of Chicago to cheer on the Palestinian cause, which in this latest bout of terrorism has led to, among other things, the beheading of babies.
It’s not clear that the Chicago BLM branch were among the protestors in Chicago.
BLM Chicago is just one of the many BLM branches around the country, including the entire grassroots organization, that has publicly backed Palestinian fighters over Israel in the days since the attacks on Israel began.
The Chicago branch has shared to its social media pages graphics that explicitly blame Israel for the barbaric terror attacks conducted by Hamas terrorists, because of their ‘apartheid regime.’
The organization also attempted to sow division along racial lines by posting a graphic displaying images of celebrities who have spoken out in support for Israel in recent days.
The image included Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer, Kylie Jenner, and Madonna, and contrasted them with those who support or have supported the Palestinian cause, who include Angela Davis, Malala, Malcolm X, and Nelson Mandela.
‘Notice anything about those who support Israel and those who support Palestine?’ reads the graphic, implying that people of color should align themselves against white people in support of the Palestinians.
Since its founding the Black Lives Matter movement has supported the Palestinian cause, frequently referring to Israel, its people and its governments as oppressors.
In the spring of 2021, when Israel and the Palestinians last traded rockets, BLM released several statements in support of Palestinians, and against Israelis, whom they called settler colonialists.
‘Black Lives Matter stands in solidarity with Palestinians. We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation. (always have. And always will be),’ BLM said in 2021.
The organization’s avid support for so-called Palestinian freedom fighters has not gone unnoticed, and many online and even more publicly are disavowing the organization.
