Washington, DC - Former Black Panther member and leader of the Communist Party USA Angela Davis spoke at George Washington University at an event hosted by Students for Justice in "Palestine," the GW Black Student Union, and the GW Feminist Student Union to talk about social justice and the non-existent state of "Palestine."
Davis, who was once on the FBI's Most-Wanted List for providing weapons to her fellow Black Panther terrorists who took hostages and committed a massacre in a Marin County courthouse, falsely accused Israel of committing "ethnic cleansing" and called for its de facto destruction in an attempt to liberate "Palestine." She argued for Israel's destruction under the guises of social justice and "anti-colonialism."
We say no to Israel’s ethnic cleansing strategies. In standing up against the racism of the state of Israel, we are passionately saying no to antisemitism as well. This is supposed to be the dismantling of the era of Israeli occupation of Palestine. It has been long and coming.
In addition to defending the same position as Hamas, Davis claimed that Israel acquires its tear gas that it uses to disrupt Palestinian-Arab riots in Judea and Samaria from the same company that provided tear gas to the police at Ferguson, Missouri. This talking point is common amongst Black Lives Matter activists and Hamas apologists trying to appeal to emotions between the African-American community and the Palestinian-Arab community.
