Muslims are good at hijacking. They hijack planes. They love to claim fellow co-religionists are “hijacking” their religion (when in reality their religion is hijacking them and the people on the planes). And they love to hijack icons and beloved personalities. That includes, in no small way, Martin Luther King, Jr. But as I always note, King was expressly against what they stand for, this religion of hijackers.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Was Down w/the Jewish, Israeli Struggle, NOT the Muslim One
Yes, today is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. And every year on this day, more and more extremist Muslims try to hijack the pro-Israel, Philo-Semitic King’s memory and civil rights fight to further their own extremism, refusal to be absorbed into American society, their support for Islamic terrorism, their wish to destroy Israel, and their not-so-latent anti-Semitism.
And every year, on MLK Day, I have to point out that not only are Blacks (yes, Black Muslims, too) looked down upon by non-Black Muslims–they are referred to as “abed” (slave) or “abeed” (slaves, plural), which is basically the Arabic form of the n-word–but I also have to point out that Martin Luther King, Jr. was, unlike them, very Philo-Semitic and pro-Israel.
And on this MLK Day, I will continue that tradition. Although a letter King was purported to have written is apparently not from his hand, his statements at Harvard were, indeed his own. As I noted in a previous year:
Every year, on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I write about how various Muslim and Arab groups (mostly dominated by Muslims) invoke the name of Martin Luther King, Jr. for their various whines about alleged oppression and trumped-up discrimination, coupled with their various hate-filled diatribes against Israel. And every year, on Martin Luther King Day, I have to remind them, that if they want to own the King legacy, they have to own it all . . . including his love for Israel as a Jewish state. And including his views that you–the haters of Israel–are, in fact, anti-Semitic.
While the oft-cited “Letter to an Anti-Zionist Friend” may be fabricated, King’s record and views on Israel are clear in his documented words and actions. As I wrote in 2005, in “Radical Islam Wishes You a Happy MLK Day“:
King was adamantly opposed to the views of [Islamists including “former” Islamic terrorist, FBI award revokee, and marriage and immigration fraud perpetrator Imad] Hamad and ADC [American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee], both of which often deceptively and inappropriately invoke his name. At a 1968 Harvard appearance, King rebuked a student who attacked Israel. “When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism,” King said.
(Although an oft-cited “Letter to an Anti-Zionist Friend,” purportedly by King, may be fabricated, his Harvard quotes are well-documented, in Seymour Martin Lipset, “Socialism of fools,: The left, the Jews & Israel,” Encounter, (December 1969), p. 24.)
Yup, we know how Martin Luther King, Jr. felt about the hatred of Israel and the hatred of Jews enveloping Islam in its entirety. If only the Muslims would stop enveloping his memory.
I’m sure he’s tired of doing non-stop revolutions in his grave.
