With on-campus protests against Gaza genocide continuing, public opinion turning against Israel and growing outrage over Palestinian deaths, starvation and slaughter, Jewish groups and Zionists aren’t giving up.

They pressured university presidents to bring in cops and state troopers to bust up peaceful demonstrations. They portray students as violent when young people are victims of police violence, threatened with expulsion, arrest, criminal records and miscast as extremists.

Democrat John Fetterman of Pennsylvania described students as lying in a “pup tent” for Hamas.

With the most widespread protests against Israel in U.S. history, Zionists aren’t interested in changing minds. They plan to destroy dissent and activity that unmasks and criticizes Israel.


“As worldwide protest escalates over Israel’s genocide of Palestinians in Gaza, academic freedom and free speech are under all-out attack on university campuses in the United States, not just from university administrations and pro-Israeli groups, but now directly from the highest levels of the Israeli state. In a story that has been largely ignored in the Western press,

The Israeli news website Ynetnews, one of the largest media outlets in the country, reported that the Israeli government has launched what appears to be a wide-ranging covert campaign to harass and intimidate students, faculty, and administrators into silence,” observed William I. Robinson in a TruthOut.org report published online March 23.

“The playbook of tactics employed by the Israel lobby include character assassination, selective misquotation, the willful distortion of the record, the fabrication of falsehoods and a complete disregard for the truth, gaslighting, blacklisting targeted individuals, political and economic blackmail, and even threats of violence,” Mr. Robinson added.

Calling all Black apologists?

Another essential tool will be using “trusted messengers” and influencers to spread the Israeli line and lies. Broadcaster and former pro football player Emmanuel Acho is one but not the only example.

According to the notoriously anti-Black New York Post, he has a new book out with Israeli activist-actress and hardcore Zionist Noa Tishby. They were put together by their agents and Tishby appeared on Acho’s YouTube program “Uncomfortable Conversations With A Black Man” after the Oct. 7 attack on Israel. He had a best-selling book of the same title.

The Post reported: “ ‘Rather than talking about racism and the misunderstandings of the Black struggle,’ writes the 33-year-old Nigerian-American who was raised in Dallas, ‘we’re going to talk about anti-Semitism and the misunderstandings of the Jewish struggle.’ ”

Misunderstanding of the Jewish struggle?

Acho has either misunderstanding of the Jewish/Zionist reality or is willfully ignorant.

He asks whether Jews are White, which the vast majority of the settler Zionists are in Israel as are powerful Jews originally from Europe. These are the same people who oppress Ethiopian Jews in what is supposed to be a Jewish homeland. Their wrongs are backed by the power of their White brethren in America, the UK, Germany and other White nations.

Such reality has led some Orthodox Jews to condemn the state of Israel as an abomination established by man, not the Messiah. Jews are a people scattered across many nations who have no right to Palestine, they say.

According to a 2020 Pew Research Center study, over 90 percent of Jews in America considered themselves White.

Groups like AIPAC, the ADL, the American Jewish Committee and the Simon Wiesenthal Center are moving to influence and position Black figures as lackeys. Never mind nearly 35,000 deaths among Gazans, mass graves found after Israeli troops pulled out of southern Gaza and famine stalking Palestinians.

Their targets are Black pastors, Black lawmakers, the Black Press and even Black institutions like Morehouse College in Atlanta where many blasted plans for President Biden, an unmovable backer of Israel, to deliver the 2024 commencement address. They didn’t want a president nicknamed “Genocide Joe” speaking at the venerable HBCU.

Lies about Black-Jewish relations?

Back to Acho’s book: The Post says he believes it could “help heal the battered Black-Jewish connection that’s been ‘hijacked’ by misunderstanding. ‘If the two communities would just spend more time talking, they would understand the similarities, and thus the tension would dissipate,’ he said of the natural affinity both communities have had for one another throughout American history.”

He repeats old lies and omits harsh truths: Jewish involvement in the slave trade, Jews in the Confederacy, Jewish exploitation of Blacks in urban centers, Jews who opposed having Blacks in White suburbs, and Jewish opposition to landmark affirmative action programs killed in 1978.

Then there is the self-serving use of the Civil Rights movement to assert Jewish political power in ways not previously known chronicled in historian Marc Dollinger’s book, “Black Power, Jewish Politics: Reinventing the Alliance in the 1960s.”

“So, there are basically three areas advanced for why Jews would involve themselves in the struggle for racial equality. All three turn out to be false. But the first would be the history argument, that says Blacks and Jews share a common history, and therefore Jews empathize with the historical experience of Blacks, and therefore they’re willing to help. Right?” he noted in an NPR interview.

“When I talk generally with white Jews about why Jews are involved in social justice or civil rights or racial equality, they’ll talk about this shared history of oppression. And the problem is that American Jewish history and African-American history are 180 degrees opposite on that question.

One of my African-American colleagues, he said, ‘If I ever go to a Seder and the Jews say that they know what it’s like because they too were once slaves in Egypt,’ ” it would be deeply offensive.

“Because if Jews have to go back to ancient Egypt to get the slavery metaphor, then they’ve kind of missed that American Jewish history is a story of rapid social ascent, and African-American history is the legacy of slavery. That argument is insulting, and it’s very elementary.”

Mr. Dollinger also happens to be Jewish.

Targeting Black leaders while asserting Jewish control

Consider Rev. Jesse Jackson’s 1984 presidential run where he was targeted and threatened because he wanted a balanced U.S. policy in the Middle East. Jewish ads declared, “Ruin Jesse Ruin!” mocking the Black chant of “Run Jesse Run!”

Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan defended Rev. Jackson against death threats and called for dialogue. The Minister was attacked, condemned and the slander and lies have continued for some 40 years.

Then there was 2023 targeting of Kanye West and Kyrie Irving, and joke-tellers Dave Chappelle and Whoopi Goldberg. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) was attacked for having supported his uncle, the great scholar Dr. Leonard Jeffries, 32 years ago. Dr. Jeffries was targeted for not agreeing to hide the truth of Jewish slave trading.

“Jews Selling Blacks,” from the N.O.I. Research Group, contains 240 pages of this hidden history. Ads “placed in dozens of newspapers across America over many decades and show that Jewish slave traders were active in every region buying and selling Black African men, women, and children,” authors point out.

In 1995, pressure from Jewish groups led to a House hearing and witch hunt that ended federal contracts and the lifesaving work of N.O.I. Security, a privately owned Muslim company, reducing crime and violence in some of the worst public housing complexes in the United States. The American Jewish Committee led that assault.

In 2012, Minister Farrakhan took to the streets in Chicago and other cities with the Fruit of Islam to increase peace, lessen tension and curb deadly violence. Jewish groups again denounced him and called on Black leaders and politicians to disavow the effort.

And since a Saviours’ Day message delivered in Chicago in 2018, he has endured almost daily slander, outrageous lies while Black celebrities, athletes, politicians, and prominent leaders are told by Jews to condemn him and stay away from him.

Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism

But being anti-Zionist is not being anti-Semitic, Jill Stein, Green Party presidential candidate, told Al Jazeera. She was raised Jewish, has Holocaust survivors in her family and says she was taught a narrative that was not true. Oct. 7 was not the beginning but an episode in a history of violence that includes primarily Israeli violence, she noted.

Zionism has been controversial in the Jewish community, Stein continued.

It started with Jewish refugees seeking a place in the world, which is understandable, but they had no right to engage in the “ethnic cleansing” of Palestinians, she added.

So don’t be fooled by Black puppets. Seek and stand on the truth of yesterday and today. It’s the only way to change tomorrow.
