Half of Black Caucus Signs on to Israeli Stance on Syria, in Defiance of Black Public Opinion
Half of Black Caucus Signs on to Israeli Stance on Syria, in Defiance of Black Public Opinion

The Congressional Black Caucus sides with its party’s war mongers and in fear of the Israel lobby, while large Black majorities believe Israel is neither an ally nor a friend.

“The Black Caucus’ tolerance of apartheid Israel’s barbarism is infinite.”

Nearly 400 members of the U.S. House and Senate signed a letter urging President Trump to keep U.S. troops in Syria – against the wishes of the sovereign government of that country and therefore, in gross violation of international law -- and to increase sanctions against Russia for assisting the Syrian government in its battle against Islamic jihadists. Among the signers  were 26 of the 51 Black voting members of the House and the two Black U.S. senators that are running for president, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker

Nobody except the Israel lobby gets that kind of immediate obeisance from the Congress. Tel Aviv’s interests top the letter’s list of bullet-points: “Underscore Israel’s right to self-defense.” The letter baldly lobbies to increase the annual billions in U.S. subsidies to Israel’s bloated and hyper-aggressive, nuclear-armed military. “We must also look for ways to augment our support in the context of the current 10-year Memorandum of Understanding between the United States and Israel,” the letter reads, “ and to ensure that Israel has access to the resources and materiel it needs to defend itself against the threats it faces on its northern border.”

“Tel Aviv’s interests top the letter’s list of bullet-points.”

The massive sign-on was organized to pressure Trump into even more aggressive actions against Iran, and to prevent the president from fulfilling his oft-repeated wish to withdraw from Syria, now that the ISIS “caliphate” has been shattered and al-Qaida’s legions are bottled up in Idlib province, under siege by the Syrian Army. Israel has provided arms and assistance to both terrorist factions, as have Saudi Arabia, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Britain, France -- and the United States, the imperial grandmaster of the jihadist offensive that began in 2011 against Libya (see “U.S. Protects Jihadists in Syria,” BAR). Libya was plunged into barbarism and Syria is in ruins, with half a million dead and a third of the country displaced. Iraq, still reeling from Washington’s 2003 “Shock and Awe” and occupation, has been savaged yet again by the West’s jihadist proxies, with its second largest city, Mosul, flattened by U.S. bombs and artillery. Yet, three-quarters of the U.S. Congress last week signed on to the insane statement that the region has “been destabilized by Iranian regime’s threatening behavior.” 

“The United States was the imperial grandmaster of the jihadist offensive that began in 2011.”

Were it not for Iranian and Lebanese Shiite militias and Russia’s 2015 intervention, Syria’s secular government would have fallen to the U.S.-sponsored jihadist legions, at which point the U.S. and allied governments, including Israel, would have occupied the region, ostensibly to restore order and control the head-chopping Islamic warriors. Even in the current circumstances, Israel recently seized the opportunity to formally claim sovereignty over the Syrian Golan Heights , occupied by the Zionists in the 1967 war, and the U.S. got the chance to move 5,000 troops back into Iran to aid in the fight against ISIS, the “rogue” faction of al-Qaida that rejected the West’s instructions to blend in with other Islamist fighters and stick to the mission of regime change in  Syria.

Had President Obama’s 2011 war plan been successful, Syria would have been balkanized into mini-states ruled by warlords beholden to the U.S. and its regional allies, and Lebanon would be wracked by renewed civil war, or under the discipline of constant Israeli air strikes, or both. Iraqi Kurdistan, with its huge oil reserves and deep ties to Israel, would have seceded, and U.S. troops would be back in multi-divisional force in Iraq at the request of a terrified central government. Iran would be surrounded. The stage would then be set to empower the U.S. to cut off China’s access to Middle Eastern (and even central Asian) energy supplies – which was the larger purpose of Obama’s “smart war” of “humanitarian" intervention plus jihadist proxies, his slickly demonic contribution to the Great Imperial Game.

“Three-quarters of the U.S. Congress signed on to the insane statement that the region has “been destabilized by Iranian regime’s threatening behavior.” 

If the Congressional Black Caucus had properly understood that last week’s letter was asking them to help rescue the remnants of the First Black President’s grand plan, they might have signed on in even greater numbers. Even so, the 26 signatories included John Lewis, the “soul” of the Caucus (or “de Lawd,” as he is derisively referred to in Atlanta), who is usually part of the ten or twelve Black Caucus members that can still be counted on to vote against some of the most blatantly warlike measures. Lewis sensed that the letter was an Israeli lobby priority, as did his Black Caucus colleagues, who are listed below in order of their signing .

Poll Shows Black People Don’t Think of Israel as a Friend or Ally

The 26 lawmakers make up just over half of the 51 Black voting members of the House. (The delegates from Washington, DC, and the U.S. Virgin Islands cannot vote on the House floor.) On the Senate side, presidential candidates Cory Booker and Kamala Harris have always been in the Israel lobby’s pocket. In their haste to make a splash with headlines around the world proclaiming “Nearly 400 Lawmakers Call on Trump to Address Threats in Syria ,” the letter’s handlers may have simply quit pressing for signatures once they reached three-quarters of the House and Senate. Back in the summer of 2014, while Israel was slaughtering over 2,000 Palestinian men, women and children in Gaza, the combined chambers of Congress voted unanimously in favor of a resolution affirming Israel’s “right to defend itself.” Not one member of the Black Caucus dissented or abstained. Thus, their tolerance of apartheid Israel’s barbarism is infinite. 

But, where do their Black constituents stand on the unholy U.S. alliance with the Zionist state? A poll taken last October by The Economis/YouGov  showed only 19 percent of Black Americans thought of Israel as an “ally,” compared to 43 percent of whites and 22 percent of Hispanics. Only 17 percent of Blacks think Israel is a “friendly” country, and just 27 percent of whites and 21 percent of Hispanics see Israel as friendly. Among all races in the U.S,, support for Israel is described as “plummeting” – which is cause for the Israel lobby to organize a letter-signing publicity campaign among the folks whose cowardice or bought-and-paid-for allegiance they can count on: the elected officials of both corporate parties.

Only 17 percent of Blacks think Israel is a ‘friendly’ country.”

The electoral arrangement in the United States, where half of the duopoly is the White Man’s Party, has created a one-party system for Black America. With nowhere else to go, Black voters can think or feel however they want, but their elected representatives vote according to the wishes of their party’s funders – rich white people, virtually all of them in league with apartheid Israel. The Democratic Party is thus the mechanism for rich white people’s political domination of Black America, the nation’s most left-leaning constituency, including on issues of war and peace, and especially on Israeli apartheid. Black Democrats, with the exception of a handful of dissidents like New York lawmakers Charles and Inez Barron , are agents of forces hostile to the Black community, and enemies of peace. Last year, 75 percent of the Black Caucus voted to make police a protected class, and in 2014, shortly before the unanimous vote in favor of Israel, 80 percent of the Black Caucus voted to continue the multi-billion dollar militarization of local police, through the Pentagon’s infamous 1033 program.

Every member of the Black Caucus should be ousted on grounds of misrepresentation. But the authentic Black political conversation doesn’t travel much beyond the barbershops, beauty parlors and activist circles before it is smothered by the octopus of Black America’s one party Democratic state. That’s why the best thing that can happen this primary election season is for the Democratic Party to implode -- and set its Black and left constituencies free from the agents of rich man’s rule.

They ALL need to be replaced!

The Congressional Black Caucus has been soldout for avery long time now, hence, I'm not surprised.

Black people need to stop voting the same damn sellouts into to office term after term.  African America should use the coming election to take a stand against house-kneegroes, Black sellouts, back stabbers, and traitors who have been elected to public office by African American vote, yet, do nothing, say nothing, serve no purpose whatsoever for African America.

We may not be able to stop the republicans from stealing the presidential election again, but African America can at the very least, rid the Congressional Black Caucus and African American districts of soldout, self-serving, racist republican pet kneegroes.  

Im not surprised either.   Our biggest enemies have been our OWN people.   The loud silence from them has been outrageous.  It really is left up to our younger generation to put us back on the right track.  Cuz AAs today?  Many of em don't get it.  Or are easy to betray black folks.  I don't know what happens when BFs obtain money/fame/success/a little "edjamacation"....somethin' changes in them.  Our biggest advocates who had the platform for social justice turned silent or  wimps i.e. Belafonte, Poitier, etc.  The biggest betrayal is marrying white women and forgetting they are black.  Forgetting what was done to our ancestors, the children, the women.  And not realizing that Blackfolks are the only group to make it from slavery.  Others are outcast, massacred or exterminated.    Forgetin how we were turned in caricature jokes for white society entertainment AFTER we built this country....and still BFs wanna tap dance for them.  And then... we see with our own eyes who the monsters are...and they don't care if we know they are monsters.  But loyal BFs still wannabe the good iggers regardless of the truth smeared in their faces.   It's sad.  The Black Caucus has always been a joke to  me.  They have always been a bunch of brown-paper bags snobs-who are more interested in the  baseless debate of being black than the future betterment of black folks quality of life.  In other words, they wanna talk about us but don't wanna do nothin for us.  That's the slave mentality massa left inside his iggers.  We see it so clear today.  But!     

Yep!  You got that right.   You would have thought fighting against the Crime Bill would have been something they'd target.  But noooooooooooooooooo.   So. We need "new" blood.  Period.    A group unafraid.  Thus far, our young people prefer to turn against each other....instead of against harmful Black issues.  However, the shift is happening.   I can feel it.  But!  

" A group unafraid."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I doubt that fear is their problem, but rather it's more that they really don't give a damn about African Americans/African America, and are only concerned with self-glorification, and being good pet houseniggers for the establishment, not to mention the fact that they are taking bribes and lining their pockets/bank accounts to ignore, sellout, setup and lead astray the very constituents that they were sent to Washington to fight for.

To be honest, this is the problem with Black people EVERYWHERE in the world. 

It doesn't matter if it's African Americans, other Diaspora Blacks, or in ALL of Africa, Black people are selling out and plotting on their own people for 30 pieces of silver.  

What is so funny, and a testament to the intelligence of the majority of Black sellouts globally, that are in positions of power, influence or a public forum, is that all these backstabbing soldout/houseniggers actually believe they are not going to wind up in the exact same boat as all the Black people they have worked so hard to exploit, betray, deceive and lead astray, when the racist, psychopathic regimes they, evidently, have taken an oath to serve, come full circle [as they are in the process of doing] globally. 

They really believe that the same racist, sadistic factions that oppressed, enslaved, looted, and attempted to carry out  (so many times) the genocide of the Black race,  is actually going make exceptions just for them when it all hits the fan.

  Well it takes all kinds.....though I do think globally folks don't really know Black history....not even those who are black.  Not just talking about history in America but the full KNOWLEDGE of black culture worldwide.   And lot of those so-called bougie blacks don't even know the true meaning of what being bougie is-they just follow massa's led and pretend.  Your point is well taken my sista cuz we do have a new wave Black mentality,  however Black history in this country and aboard show that it is fear that keeps blacks from forming any type of long term solidarity whether in Africa or out.  Cuz "fear" happened during slavery, jim crow, civil rights, the crack and gang epidemic….and continue even today in other social forms...black lives matter, the so-called women's movement-all have kept Black folks from showing their REAL power.  We start it.  Then it's taken over.  Why is this?  I can't think of nothing else but....fear.   Cuz what you describe in current black behavior is NOT new.   We've had revolutions after revolutions for decades...some loud others silent but there has always been something subliminal that prevented us from achieving the ultimate goal.  Or... we get real close to it, then it abruptly slips away.  We  couldn't even achieve it when Obama became President.  In fact, we as a culture regressed. 

So.  It could be just "us" fearing the unknown that make us backstab/set up each other, sabotage our progress and betray/ deceive our community.  Cuz we are the only group of humans I know that literately self-hate every single thing about being "black" and openly show it the world.  And then wonder why we're hated or misunderstood.  So in order for black people to overcome this?  It starts with Black Love.  And lately I ain't seen no one in the Black Caucus or anywhere else giving or showing  "Black love."  Cuz that is our ONLY salvation.  Unfortunately a lot of uppity black folks didn't get the memo..... to our detriment.      But!           

  To add on to thiss convo.  Black folks globally NEED to research World history.  Starting at the onset of the fall of Rome and the beginning of Christianity.  That's where the truth about about whitefolks lie.  They are not only monsters but they are really "devils" to humanity.  Cuz they have killed millions of their OWN people 100 years prior to the Atlantic Slave Trade....so it's easy to see why they don't give a fock about black folks or anyone else.  It's there.  Check it out.  But!

These fuckers are MANKIND!! Truth is, no one knows what KIND of MAN they are!! They've been blowing up people ever since I've been on the planet and are itching to cook Iranians. "People" that needed SLAVES had more than a mental health issue. They're just an entire RACE of DONALD TRUMPS and HITLER. If they'd let their FUR grow the way it's supposed to, they'd put the hairiest monkeys alive to SHAME!! Now here we all are:  COMPLAINING and no one gives a shit. We're stuck until death comes naturally or someone puts us out of our misery, making AMERICA AMERICA AGAIN!!!!!!

  Glad you said that my sista.  Cuz they been hiding the truth  about WHO they are.  Thing is?  Back in the day they used to say, there are three races....the Caucasoid, the Negroid and the Mongoloid.  Truth is?  [in my view]...There are three different species of humans:  Homo sapiens sapiens [African modern humans], Neanderthals [European cave man] and Denisovans [Asian cave man].  Homo sapiens sapiens are modern day humans who derived [and evolved] from Africa.  Neanderthals are archaic "humans" who derived [ and evolved] from Europe.  And Denisovans are also archaic "humans"  who derived [and evolved] from Asia.   Archaic humans differ from modern humans because they never fully developed and became extinct  before they could completely evolve as a separate human species.  But both Denisovans and Neanderthals share similar traits of modern humans [ cuz they initially derived from homo erectus in  Africa and migrated out] as why they were able to breed with African modern humans so easily.  And that's where it's gets very interesting because Neanderthal i.e. the cave man "specifically" holds [European barbaric] characteristic traits of being mean, violent and non-intelligent-a truth massa dismisses...however their historic behavior says otherwise.  And since there is more genetic DNA of Neanderthal in the European characteristic make up than homo sapien sapiens, is it clear to see why [and how] Europeans lack empathy and humanity today.

Special note:  Back in the day, white scholars i.e.massa and his boys [during the enlightenment era] debated  whether or not to identify Neanderthals as a separate species.  They didn't want to do that because it would indicate that Europeans were subhumans and not a part of the homo genus family.  And at the time, Black folks were just freed from slavery and deemed by massa as 3/5 human-which justified their reason for Jim Crow [in America]-and continued racism throughout the world.   But!     

You know:: One just comes to the conclusion that these "people" are not "human" at all!! If one doesn't have any "hue" one can't be "human"; makes sense to me. They have the hair of every ANIMAL breathing; they burn like LOBSTERS in the sun; they wrinkle like elephants' behinds by age 35 and they have the mouths of every monkey flying through the trees. Not a set of lips between them!! That's why they made so much fun of ours and get every kind of injection to grow a PAIR!! Just grab a seat in your local Walmart, get a cup of coffee and watch!! You'll be more entertained than you ever will be watching television. Half of them are on canes and the rest are in wheel chairs and using walkers. The rest of them weight about 350 pounds a piece. The SUPERIOR RACE is a figment of their imagination.

The Orange Wonder takes up the entire WIDTH of the steps when he's boarding Air Force 1 with the left side of his toupee flapping in the breeze. Cary Grant is dying all over again laughing his ass off at this GEM!!!!!! The Orange Wonder doesn't look as good as Cary's left toe nail RIGHT NOW!!!!

I think I'm going to vote for Jiminy Cricket; won't have to worry about his wife being dressed in $200,000 outfits every single second of every single day. I'm tired of Trumpf's 4 year runway. The Brown people need to be rescued from his clutches and a 4 month old baby needs to be reunited with his parents. Slavery's NEVER OVER with these CREEPS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
