Martin Luther King
A Supporter
Of Israel

Thanks to the very fine blog, Hip Hop Republican, for making me aware of this video.

Here is an excerpt of the MLK's speech:

". . . You declare, my friend, that you do not hate the Jews, you are merely 'anti-Zionist.' And I say, let the truth ring forth from the high mountain tops, let it echo through the valleys of God's green earth: When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews--this is God's own truth.

Anti-Semitism, the hatred of the Jewish people, has been and remains a blot on the soul of mankind. In this we are in full agreement. So know also this: anti-Zionist is inherently anti-Semitic, and ever will be so.

Why ? Because Zionism is nothing less than the dream and ideal of the Jewish people returning to live in their own land.
