CORNEL WEST FIGHTS THE AIPAC ZIO-MAFIA FOR BERNIE PLATFORM

CORNEL WEST FIGHTS THE AIPAC ZIO-MAFIA FOR BERNIE PLATFORM ADVOCATING FOR PALESTINIAN RIGHTS!

DEFINE AIPAC = American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) = Extremely will funded by $Billionaires and $Banksters.

FACTS ON AIPAC BRIBERY AND INDUCTION OF BLACK AMERICANS TO FIGHT FOR OPPRESSION OF “UNDERDOGS” BEGINNING AT THE COLLEGE LEVEL:

AIPAC = A Powerful BANKSTER FUNDED FOREIGN LOBBY FIGHTING AGAINST THE RIGHTS OF NON-JEWS AROUND THE WORLD!

FACT: Democratic Party & DNC = AIPAC

AIPAC TOOLS OF BRIBERY + INTIMIDATION + THREATS + EVEN BLACKMAIL ARE KNOWN BUT THIS ADDS ANOTHER KIND OF BRIBERY = ECONOMICALLY DEPRIVED BLACK COLLEGE STUDENTS ARE SET ON EXPENSIVE TRIPS AND INTRODUCED TO POWERFUL JEWISH AND AMERICAN POLICICIANS = A WOW PROGRAM! = Lobbying organization enlists black Americans – victims of oppression and state violence for centuries – to mask the suffering of another oppressed people = THE PALESTINIANS!

FACT: AIPAC strategically recruits and educates college level and even black leaders (including members of Congress) to defend Israel from criticism or critique.

FACT: Palestinians live under Israel’s occupation and incredible suffering.

VIDEO SHOWS HOW AIPAC MAFIA POWER RULES OVER DNC & DEM PARTY & OVER BLACK DEMOCRATIC LEADERS = COMPLETE CLARITY!

FACT: Israelis and their SECURITY CORPORATIONS basically run Homeland Security including Officer Training and Militarization with LONG TERM CONTRACTS

FACT: This ISRAELI PRESENCE reverberates upon American Blacks on the streets of America = Blacks are MURDERED + Bruised + Bloodied + Intimidated + Lives Destroyed under the weight of police violence, mass incarceration, and disenfranchisement.

AIPAC RUNS CLINTON-DNC-DEM PARTY = June 9 public hearing of the DNC’s 15-member Platform Drafting Committee took public testimony and debated foreign policy and Israel and Paslestine.

AIPAC-CLINTON SIDE = Robert Wexler, President of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace (WAR) = presented Hillary’s version of the DNC platform = Listing Israel’s security concerns + COMPLETELY neglecting and ignoring the suffering that Palestinians endure including MURDERS AND TORTURES ON A GRAND SCALE.

WEXLER-AIPAC-CLINTON = REFUSE TO ALLOW THE WORDS “occupation” and “settlements.”

WEXLER-AIPAC-CLINTON = Made sure to condemn NONVIOLENT Palestinian civil society’s nonviolent Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement. = IN SUMMARY SAYING NO ONE DARE EVER PRESSURE ISRAELIS OR ISRAEL – ESPECIALLY DEMOCRATS!

CORNEL WEST = FAMOUS BLACK LEADER & PRINCETON Ph.D and prominent author, placed on the Drafting Committee by Bernie (one of Bernie’s five members) BUT Clinton had SIX MEMBERS.

Cornel said, “I think both of us can agree that a precious Palestinian baby in the West Bank has exactly the same value as a precious Jewish baby in Tel Aviv.” Both deserve security and human rights. Therefore we must talk about the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands and the LARGEST OPEN AIR PRISON (GAZA) IN THE WORLD! = “occupation is real. It’s concrete.” = FULLY KNOWN but Ignored by Israelis and AIPAC for far too many decades.

QUESTION: Should the word “occupation” be in the Democratic platform?

QUESTION: Should the United States continue it’s biased Israeli security policies while ignoring Palestinians security and safety as well or is a MORE JUSTICE AND A BALANCED POLICY NEEDED?

WEXLER: Said “what you refer to as occupation” should be absent from the DNC platform because it brings up potential litigation questions that might address the human rights of Palestinians.

WEXLER: ODDLY CONTRADICTS HIMSELF = He Advocated for Jerusalem to be recognized by Democrats as Israel’s capital.

AIPAC-CLINTON-CAMP = Opposed to West’s proposal to acknowledge Palestinian suffering and OCCUPATION. + Just days, AIPAC under the table quietly enlisting 60 PUPPET black politicians and church leaders to counter West’s efforts. = AIPAC feels only large numbers of Blacks can counter a black intellectual like Cornel West.

WEXLER: ODDLY CONTRADICTS HIMSELF = He Advocated for Jerusalem to be recognized by Democrats as Israel’s capital.

AIPAC-CLINTON-CAMP = Opposed to West’s proposal to acknowledge Palestinian suffering and OCCUPATION. + Just days, AIPAC under the table quietly enlisting 60 PUPPET black politicians and church leaders to counter West’s efforts. = AIPAC feels only large numbers of Blacks can counter a black intellectual like Cornel West.

AIPAC TOP BLACK PUPPET = Bakari Sellers who supposedly penned the DNC Letter opposing Cornel West’s proposal on June 25 to the 15-member Dem Platform Drafting Committee. = West’s security and humanitarian concerns of both Israelis and Palestinians must be included in the platform also the motion was proposed by James Zogby, President of the Arab American Institute. = A call for “an end to occupation and illegal settlements so that [Palestinians] may live in independence, sovereignty and dignity” as well as an acknowledgement that Palestinians “deserve security, recognition and a normal life free from violence, terror and incitement.”

BAKARI SELLERS AIPAC LETTER signed by 60+ BLACK LEADERS = Addressed to Platform Committee co-chairs Governor Dannel Malloy and Shirley Franklin made its way to members of the Drafting Committee. = LETTER SOUNDED JUST LIKE WEXLER’s June 9 testimony including the ANTI-BDS wording.

FACT: Term “Occupation” was used by GW Bush + Ariel Sharon + Barack Obama

AIPAC-CLINTON-WEXLER DENY WORD “OCCUPATION” = But “It’s an occupation that humiliates people, that breeds contempt, that breeds anger and despair and a hopelessness that leads to violence.” = AIPAC invisibly worked behind the scenes to ensure the motion would fail using the SELLERS-AIPAC LETTER + BEHIND THE SCENE PRESSURES!

SELLERS AIPAC LETTER = KEEP THE STATUS QUO IN PALESTINE AND ISRAEL = “I believe that the Mideast planks of the previous platform … have served us well as a party and a country.”

SO WHO IS SELLERS? + Who were these 60+ black leaders opposing West by echoing AIPAC-Wexler (“one of the stalwart leaders of the American-Israel alliance”)? = ANTI-PALESTINIANS.

SELLERS = MASSIVELY FUNDED RECRUITING by AIPAC at black colleges, universities and churches across America. Put black people on stage to TRY to show Israelis are NOT SUPREMACISTS & RACISTS = Which, of course, they are with THEIR PURE JEWISH STATE!

AIPAC Recruitment of Blacks = Paying dividends for Clinton-AIPAC-BLACK Alliance to BLOCK any progressive shift especially on ISRAEL = ANTI-Palestinians = Let their SUFFERING CONTINUE!

SELLERS = Top AIPAC Recruitment of Blacks = Morehouse College to AIPAC included Bakari Sellers = Son of Cleveland Sellers, a civil rights activist known for his role in the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, one of the most impactful civil rights organizations in the 1960s and was Director of African American Studies at the University of South Carolina. = Advocate of “creating change that benefits all persons – no matter race, color, or creed.”

SELLERS = ODD that he would be so loyal to AIPAC and its oppression of Palestinian humanity. But in 2004 Sellers was recruited by two AIPAC strangers after being elected Student Government Presidency at Morehouse College. = AIPAC inviting Sellers to a policy conference by AIPAC staffers Jonathan Kessler and Michael Glassman like they do to other student political leaders at historically black colleges and universities across the country = Inviting & paying their way to Washington, DC (knowing ZERO about AIPAC), but loving the idea of rubbing shoulders with US lawmakers = Black poorly funded students jumped at the chance. = Sellers admitted, “The voice on the other end sounded kind of nurturing and understanding, and I said I don’t have anything to lose.” Sellers went to DC on AIPAC’s dime and was overwhelmed by the access and experiences he gained = As one of TEN BLACKS of 7,500 AIPAC members “I was just so enthralled that we went to this huge dinner that they have and every member of Congress, or at least 75% of them…” = Steny Hoyer + Condoleezza Rice + George Bush.

AIPAC announced “We would also like to recognize” – as President Bush stands and waits – “We would like to recognize the SGA presidents from Morehouse College and Spelman College, Bakari Sellers and Adeola Adejobi. May they please stand.” So that attention to detail and that we made President Bush wait even just for that moment. It meant a great deal.

SELLERS GETS AIPAC LINKED MONEY = Two years later to become one of the youngest congressmen ever elected to the South Carolina House of Representatives, where he served the 90th district from 2006-2014. = All from AIPAC’s MONEY & Networking = No other way a BLACK political career could have gotten off the ground so quickly. = “a lot of people I’ve met at the AIPAC policy conference became a huge part of my fund-raising base.” — Sellers admitted (2009)

SELLERS = 2016 Only BLACK to sit on AIPAC’s National Council and pretends to pen letters to keep the Democratic Party from recognizing Palestinians’ rights. = Letter was written by an AIPAC staff member + Every Black signatory was recruited by AIPAC via the American Israel Education Foundation (AIEF) all with long & deep AIPAC roots like SELLERS experiences. = EXTREMELY LONG & DEEP over a decade PLUS!

Black Leaders Defending Israel against Palestinians! = 10+ years AIPAC-AIEF has recruited Black Students like Sellers from black colleges and universities. = Funded by CONVICTED FELON Adam Milstein, an Israeli real estate investor who was convicted for felony tax evasion in 2009, and who sits on AIPAC’s National Council alongside Sellers.

MILSTEIN = NOT ONLY A FELON BUT ALSO is Islamophobic and promoted racist attacks on Obama + Opposes Black Lives Matter and Palestinian movements. But Milstein funds, TRIPS FOR black students like SELLERS to AIPAC policy conferences and on Israel trips, for PROPAGANDA AND INDOCTRINATIONS of young students easily impressed with elegant wining, dining and access to US lawmakers and world leaders about which most people dare dream. Many students are from a disadvantaged background and are EASILY SWEPT OFF THEIR FEET like SELLERS was.

“You’re talking about a lot of students who grew up in a socio-economic place that does not give them these opportunities. We met amazing people. I met Netanyahu. In 2007 or 2008 I met all the Democratic candidates for president. My dad cried when I met Obama. [AIPAC] opens your eyes to things you’ve never seen.” — Another Black recruit.

AIPAC strategically recruits black students and leaders to be Israel advocates and defenders = AIPAC views its African-American Outreach program as a particularly important tool designed intentionally to use black leaders as shields AGAINST constant charges of racism and aparthied worse than South-Africa with MASS MURDERS & Indefinite Detentions of Palestinians. = AIPAC most interested in defending Israel from charges of unequal treatment through the optics of black leaders standing upon a stage with Israelis & American Jewish $Billionaires?

AIPAC-CLINTON-WEXLER-SELLERS-60+ BLACKS = CORNEL WEST Motion Fails 8 to 5 on June 25 = NO WORD “OCCUPATION” or “SETTLERS” or “The violation of Palestinian rights.” BUT Fighting BDS and for Jerusalem as “undivided” capital of Israel. = AIPAC-SABAN-CLINTON WON THE “AIPAC-FIXED” BATTLE.

SAME OLD CHIT:

#1 Strong and secure Israel is vital to the United States
#2 Shared Strategic interests and values of democracy, equality, tolerance, and pluralism.
#3 We will always retaining Israel’s qualitative military edge
#4 Oppose any language delegitimizing Israel as ANTI-SEMITE even though we are mostly NOT SEMITES and speed Central European Yiddish NOT HEBREW.
#5 FIGHT United Nations + Europe + Fight Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions Movement.
#6 Same lies about a two-state solution

Sellers was asked why he wrote the letter, “…as somebody concerned about the security and safety of Israel and who also has compassion for Palestinian brothers and sisters?”

BUT “If you care about Palestinians, why not acknowledge their suffering and the occupation in the DNC Platform…?”

SELLERS = VERY CONFUSED response mixing up Gaza with West Bank showing his AIPAC propaganda was poorly defined in his head. = Continuing to talk about Israel’s security needs without mentioning a single Palestinian concern.

SELLERS answer to AIPAC using black leaders to shield Israel from racism charges? = “That’s not fair, I’m not a puppet.” BUT there are obvious political and financial benefits to being involved with AIPAC to win ELECTIONS.

SELLERS WAS ASKED = “Why do you feel Americans should witness state violence committed against black Americans, but feel the DNC should not even acknowledge the word “occupation,” and incredible suffering endured by Palestinians? = NO Response.

30 of the 60+ BLACK LEADERS that signed Sellers letter, nearly all have associations with AIPAC. A dozen replied saying they would be happy to answer written questions. And so I submitted them:

#1 Why did you sign Bakari’s letter?
#2 How long have you been associated with AIPAC
#3 Has AIPAC funded either your campaign or any legislative trips you’ve taken to Israel?
#4 Why does AIPAC recruit black leaders?
#5 Who presented SELLER’S letter for you to sign?

Zero answered these questions! So many SILENT leaders!

July 8, 2016 in Orlando on July 9, the full committee discussed the party’s platform and voted and “OCCUPATION” and “SETTLERS” were VOTED DOWN 95-73, toppled by help of a black leader educated and supported by AIPAC.

On international effort to rebuild Gaza, which the UN warns could be uninhabitable by 2020, where poverty and hopelessness undermine peace and security for both Palestinians and Israelis.” CLINTON-AIPAC MAFIA REP Mark Stanley offering ocallous and obtuse argument that were Democrats to open up Gaza for debate, what else would they then have to open up for debate? Failed, 95-72 with BLACK BLOCK on AIPAC-CLINTON-WEXLER-SELLERS SIDE = Shouting and protests broke out.

CONSULTANT = Marc Lamont Hill (MLH) = Distinguished Professor of African American Studies at Morehouse College, author and television personality. = Asked for knowledge of AIPAC + Palestinian suffering + Leaders like Bakari Sellers linked to doing AIPAC’s Lobbying work + Harm done to Israel

David Harris-Gershon (ME) = AUTHOR ASKS QUESTIONS = A Jewish, ‘white’ American

ME: “Should African-Americans have any particular responsibility for recognizing the suffering of Palestinians?”

MLH: Yes! Black people must fight for justice wherever it is. We should still be interested justice when it comes to Jewish people, but at the same time we have to open our eyes and recognize that the kind of historical struggle that black people often liken themselves to – dislocation, marginalization, state violence – is the struggle of Palestinians. We’re much closer to where Palestinians are right now than where Israelis are. We can do both.

Me: “I’m sure you’re aware that Bakari and everyone who signed the letter are affiliated with AIPAC, most through AIEF. How do you personally feel about AIPAC enlisting black leaders to thwart attempt to have Palestinian oppression recognized by the DNC?”

MLH: “There’s a twisted irony here that black people, who have always been the vanguard of social justice struggles in America, who have been a moral compass in terms of political action, are now being used to underwrite social injustice. It’s a dark irony which brings a great sadness.

It’s breathtaking how efficient and powerful AIPAC is and how effective they are…so many young students, so many black ministers, so many black politicians have their intellectual and physical labor be used in service of a project I believe is anti-democratic and counter to social justice ideals.”

Me: “Do you think Bakari and other black lawmakers are being used by AIPAC rather than valued and if so, given these are intelligent people, why do you think they’re allowing themselves to be used in this way?”

MLH: “First, I think there’s a willful ignorance…I don’t think most black American politicians are corrupt or engaged in some kind of venal act, I think they believe the narratives they’ve been told…when you’re being well funded, and when your election or re-election status hinges on it, it’s easy to not look for counter evidence. I just think they’re wrong, and when being wrong is lucrative, it’s easy to not try to be right.”

Me: “AIPAC has targeted traditional black colleges and universities and churches to try and recruit black leaders not because of any power associated with these leaders but because having black faces on stage at AIPAC conferences hides the racism and oppression of Palestinians…. ‘Look, black Americans love Israel. Israel’s not racist.’ Do you buy into that critique?”

MLH: “I think that’s exactly right. Some of it is the optics of it, showing a multi-racial coalition of people fighting for a Zionist project because then it nullifies to some extent the racial issue…So if you can model this mini-democratic experiment on stage at an AIPAC conference then it makes it harder to point out racism.

Me: “why (would) mentioning occupation and settlements in the DNC Platform would advance peace?”

MLH: “We can’t have justice unless all sides are recognized and respected…if we begin our platform by not acknowledging the plight of Palestinian people, and the very real political circumstances they live under, we can’t redress it…It’s a real and human tragedy, and we need to always remember it and address it. If we don’t do that, then we can’t fix the problem. We can’t fix the problem of occupation if we pretend it’s not an occupation but a dispute…Democrats are denying the problem exists, which then undermines our ability to fix the problem…I’d tell Democratic leaders that we’re compromising our moral authority as a party.”

FACT: Not just Palestinian suffering and survival, but the suffering and survival of Israeli Jews as well. And only arbiter powerful enough to compel Israel to end its occupation, dismantle settlement blocks, and reach an accord with Palestinian leaders, is the United States. = WITHHOLD $3+ Billion in military and foreign aid annually will CREATE CHANGE QUICKLY!

AIPAC = Support FAR right-wing MASS MURDERING policies of Israeli leaders like Binyamin Netanyahu, policies which are destroying both the lives and futures of Palestinians and Israelis, angers me to no end. = Wisps of fascism taking root. It’s not difficult to see where we’re headed. And that’s worse than where we are, for both sides.

Like Marc Lamont Hill, I’m outraged that AIPAC has chosen to enlist black leaders to defend the status quo and help ensure things only get worse. And I’m disappointed with such leaders, not as a member of the black community, but as one invested both in Israel and in the realization of full rights, dignity and sovereignty for Palestinians.

As Hill stated, all we can do is educate ourselves and organize to combat AIPAC’s efforts and realize justice for all involved. After all, the Democratic Party must vote on this platform at the convention in Philadelphia soon.
