Connecting the Dots Between Jerusalem and Ferguson

Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan


The recent spate of savage attacks against civilians in Israel and the serial outbreaks of civil disorder and attacks on police officers in America may seem disconnected, but they are not.

Each has its roots, and funding, in the radical anti-Western anti-democratic forces that hope to overthrow constitutional government in America and destroy the Jewish state.

And each has been aided and abetted, and is indeed sustained by the radical-Left in the Western media who have made heroes of the cop-killing thugs of the “Black Lives Matter” movement in America and “victims” of the savage Palestinians who stab innocent Israeli women and children.

Consider the media coverage of the Palestinian attacks on Israeli citizens.

As Bret Stephens of The Wall Street Journal recently observed:

If you’ve been following the news from Israel, you might have the impression that “violence” is killing a lot of people. As in this headline: “Palestinian Killed As Violence Continues.” Or this first paragraph: “Violence and bloodshed radiating outward from flash points in Jerusalem and the West Bank appear to be shifting gears and expanding, with Gaza increasingly drawn in.”

Read further, and you might also get a sense of who, according to Western media, is perpetrating “violence.” As in: “Two Palestinian Teenagers Shot by Israeli Police,” according to one headline. Or: “Israeli Retaliatory Strike in Gaza Kills Woman and Child, Palestinians Say,” according to another.

Such was the media’s way of describing two weeks of Palestinian assaults that began when Hamas killed a Jewish couple as they were driving with their four children in the northern West Bank. Two days later, a Palestinian teenager stabbed two Israelis to death in Jerusalem’s Old City, and also slashed a woman and a 2-year-old boy. Hours later, another knife-wielding Palestinian was shot and killed by Israeli police after he slashed a 15-year-old Israeli boy in the chest and back.

Other Palestinian attacks include the stabbing of two elderly Israeli men and an assault with a vegetable peeler on a 14-year-old. On Sunday, an Arab-Israeli man ran over a 19-year-old female soldier at a bus stop, then got out of his car, stabbed her, and attacked two men and a 14-year-old girl. Several attacks have been carried out by women, including a failed suicide bombing.

Nowhere in the left-leaning Western media is it explained that these attacks are not random – they are instigated by Muslim imams preaching hate in Palestinian mosques and by the Palestinian “government” itself.

“Brothers, this is why we recall today what Allah did to the Jews,” one Gaza imam said last Friday in a recorded address, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, or Memri, and quoted by Stephens. “Today, we realize why the Jews build walls. They do not do this to stop missiles but to prevent the slitting of their throats.”

Then, brandishing a six-inch knife, he added: “My brother in the West Bank: Stab!”

But how is that exhortation to “stab” any different than what you hear from #BlackLivesMatter thugs and their inciters – like Louis Farrakhan – right here in America?*

Appearing on his Justice or Else! Tour at the Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal church in Washington DC, Farrakhan said, "Death is sweeter than watching us slaughter each other to the joy of a 400 year old enemy. Death is sweet. The Quran teaches persecution is worse than slaughter."

"10,000 in the midst of the million … 10,000 fearless men who say death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny," he added.

In appealing to the Koran, Farrakhan said, "Retaliation is a prescription from God to calm the breasts of those whose children have been slain. So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling."

"So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us," he said. "Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling."*

The media has long given Farrakhan a pass for this race-war rhetoric, just as the Big Three news networks refuse to cover Black Lives Matter activists chanting death threats against the police, even as they castigate authorities, such as Harris County [Texas] Sheriff Ron Hickman, for making the obvious connection between the murder of Deputy Darren H. Goforth and the cop-killing rhetoric of #BlackLivesMatter.

But there’s more than a chilling rhetorical connection between Farrakhan and Middle East terrorists in their similar calls to Islam-inspired violence.

In August, over than 1,100 Black activists, artists, scholars, students and organizations signed a statement that calls for “solidarity with the Palestinian struggle as well as a boycott of private prison company G4S and other corporations profiting from Israeli occupation."

“Mutual expressions of solidarity have helped to generate a vigorous political kinship linking black organizers, scholars, cultural workers and political prisoners in the U.S. with Palestinian activists, academics, political prisoners, and artists,” explained accused African-American terrorist and admitted communist Angela Davis, who is featured in the video.

According to reporting by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the idea for the video came to Palestinian scholar and organizer Noura Erakat in the summer of 2014 while  fighting was going on in Gaza at the same time that the Ferguson uprising was sparked by the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

“Palestinians used social media to share their advice [with Ferguson rioters] on how to deal with tear gas and rubber bullets, and protesters chanted ‘From Ferguson to Gaza, we will be free,’” explained Erakat.

However, the ties between the anti-American radical racist Louis Farrakhan and anti-American terrorist regimes in the Middle East go back much further than the summer of 2014.

The late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi was a strong supporter of Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam and heavily financed Farrakhan’s anti-white racist group.  In 1985, Gaddafi affirmed his solidarity with Farrakhan with a $5 million interest-free loan. * (We’re guessing Gaddafi’s estate is unlikely to collect on the debt.)

In 1996, according to reporting by The Blaze’s Meredith Jessup, Farrakhan traveled to Libya and received Gaddafi’s International Prize for Human Rights, a $250,000 “honor” also bestowed on the likes of Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega and “the children of Palestine.”*

But guess who accompanied Louis Farrakhan to Libya to meet with Muammar Gaddafi in Tripoli in 1984, even before Farrakhan inked the interest-free loan?

The Reverend Dr. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr.

The race-baiting mentor and spiritual advisor to President Barack Obama personally accompanied Farrakhan to Libya to meet with Muammar Gaddafi, at the height of tensions between the Libyan dictator and the United States that ultimately led to Reagan administration’s campaign of economic sanctions against Libya, the Gulf of Sidra incidents, the Libyan bombing of a Berlin disco that killed two Americans, the American bombing of Libya  and the Libyan terrorist-backed bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

The relationship between anti-American race-war instigators, such as Louis Farrakhan and Jeremiah Wright, and anti-American religious war instigators, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and the Palestinian Liberation Organization, isn’t a recently formed alliance.

The two movements have long-shared the same funding and the same goal; the destruction of the United States as the foundational element necessary for the preservation of Western cultural values and constitutional liberty, but until now they never had facilitators in the highest levels of the United States government, such as the Attorney General, the Secretary of State and the President, to help them accomplish it.
