CORRECTION! We recently ran an article on the violence in Gaza that included a reference and link to a Fox News article, claiming that BLM had declared solidarity with Hamas. That article has since been corrected to read that BLM expressed solidarity with Palestinians, not Hamas.

You can read the full article about the correction from AFP here:

We regret the error and whenever we find anything that is genuinely factually incorrect, we note it.

In case there are still any illusions that Black Lives Matter is a legitimate civil rights group rather than an organization run by radical leftists (not that it’s ever been much of a secret),

its leaders just declared “solidarity” with the Palestinians, accused Israel of colonialism and said, “We will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation.” What that has to do with protecting black lives is beyond me. But it does put them squarely on the side of Hamas militants who started this current violence by firing hundreds of missiles indiscriminately at Israeli civilians, so it appears that Jewish lives don’t matter a whit to them.

Naturally, BLM’s siding with the Palestinians elicited cheers from odious groups such as the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, who accuse Israel of committing war crimes in striking back against Hamas. In response, the Israeli Defense Forces pointed out that Hamas hides among civilians, using them as human shields, and that the IDF warns civilians ahead of strikes on Hamas facilities to give them time to get to safety. They tweeted, "Israel fights to protect its civilians. Hamas uses civilians to protect itself."

It seems like a pretty obvious difference, but I guess if you think Hamas militants who are firing missiles at innocent civilians are the good guys, you’re easily confused. Not that I expect the leaders of BLM to read this, but here’s an article by Dennis Prager explaining why anti-Semitism is the worst form of racism.

    Israel needs to defend itself from U.S. democrats.

    If you are black and believe in the words of Martin Luther King, how can some follow BLM. It is a total contradiction to what he fought for!

    Why don't we just send all these BLM terrorists to Palestine and let's see how they like it. They would not last a day.
    Getting rid of them would be the best thing for our country

    Of course BLM (leadership) supports Hamas, they’re BOTH terrorist organizations! Israel should be pushing hamas and it’s followers straight into the Mediterranean Sea!
