Stop the racists from divesting from Israel
N.Z. Bear from "The Truth Laid Bear" has posted an entry describing how some are getting organized to oppose the racist "divest-from-Israel" movement:
Upon hearing that Yale was the latest campus to suffer from a divest-from-Israel movement, I reached out to Yale Friends of Israel, a group quoted as (not surprisingly) opposing divestment.
This "divest-from-Israel" movement is racist and anti-Jewish. There are dozens of hotspots around the World - just a couple of days ago Muslim fanatics murdered 50 people in Nigeria in one day because of an article that was published in a local newspaper mentioning that Muhamed might have married one of the Miss World contestants. Over one million people have died as a result of armed conflict in Angola - but do we hear from these groups on a "divest-from-Angola" movement?
The racists from the "divest-from-Israel" movement have one issue on their minds: hostility and discrimination against the State of the Jews. They are rabid anti-Semites, and their pitiful racist movement will go nowhere.

We probably don't hear about 'divest from Angola' movements because the US doesn't send Angola six billion dollars a year in money and weapons. It does, however, send over that amount to Israel.
It's in the best interest of the US to remove itself from this situation as much as possible, as it will set an interesting and uncomfortable precident. If the US supports the 'we were here first' idea of Israeli ownership, then how will it justify its persecution and genocide of the Native Americans?
If 'divest from israel' is a racist concept to you, you might want to consider how you feel about Muslims and Arabs.

>We probably don't hear about 'divest from Angola' movements because the US doesn't send Angola six billion dollars a year in money and weapons. It does, however, send over that amount to Israel.
First of all, the US sends $3 billion dollars a year to Israel, not $6 billion.
Furthermore, the US also sends $3 billion to Egypt, a country which is very far from being a Democracy. Similar amounts are sent to Saudi Arabia, and many other Arab countries.
There are hundreds of examples on Arab Muslim intolerance from the deliberate murder of babies, through the stoning of raped women and the murder of thousands for "Jihad" (Islamic holy war). Do you participate in a "Divest from Egypt" movement? Why not? Maybe it's because you are a racist, anti-Jewish son of a mutant pig?
Your idea of what Israel is all about ('we were here first') is ludicrous. Israel is all about "we wish to live in peace, please leave us alone, don't murder our children".
That said if you attack Israel, be ready for the consequences. We mean it when we say "Never Again!" in regards to the Holocaust.
I am not a racist: I do not hate all Arab and Muslims. I am intolerant of intolerance and I can't stand anti-Semites, racist and terrorists murderers (that's why I dislike you already).
For that reason I despise Al-Qaeda, the Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Arafat and his Al-Aksa brigades, the Islamic Chechnean terrorists, the Islamic Pakistani terrorists, the Islamic murderers from Nigeria.
If you think that all Arab/Muslims are terrorists, than you are the racist.
As for your claim that there's persecution and genocide of native Americans - it brings up the very reason Palestinians and Arafat did not accept peace and a state of their own. Just like you can't move on even after hundreds of years have passed, the Palestinians prefer to continuously try to destroy Israel instead of building a country of their own and live in peace.
They won't succeed - and you won't succeed in spreading your lies.
