Alice Walker Refuses to Have Boring, Stupid Novel “Color Purple” in Hebrew, Calls Israel “Apartheid”

By Debbie Schlussel

I am proud to say that I’ve never wasted valuable brain cells/moments of life nor lowered my IQ by reading the over-rated tripe by Alice Walker, a woman whose crap would never have been published but for affirmative action. To call this bloated bigot a “novelist” is beyond charitable exaggeration. And now this self-important Ms. Thang–this excessively-hyped, lesbionic screedist–is refusing to have her piece of crap book, “The Color Purple,” translated into Hebrew because, she says, Israel is an “apartheid” state and has “segregation” worse than she experienced in the South.


Alice Walker: Jew-Hating Bitches Are Every Color of the Rainbow

In a June 9 letter to Yediot Books, Walker said she would not allow the publication of the book into Hebrew because “Israel is guilty of apartheid and persecution of the Palestinian people, both inside Israel and also in the Occupied Territories.”

In her letter, posted Sunday by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel on its website, Walker supported the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and offered her hope that the BDS movement “will have enough of an impact on Israeli civilian society to change the situation.” . . .

At least one version of the book has already appeared in Hebrew translation, in the 1980s.

Walker said Israeli policies were “worse” than the segregation she suffered as an American youth and said South Africans had told her it was worse than Apartheid.

Aside from the fact that Walker is one ignorant bitch, she might check out how Black Jews from Ethiopia are faring in Israel, where they were embraced and their development was advanced, unlike in Africa, where they experienced the real apartheid: discrimination from their Black fellow countrymen, who hate Jews . . . just like Alice Walker does. Or she might want to check out the standard of living for Arabs–both Muslim and Christian–in Israel, which is higher than anywhere else in the Middle East. She might also want to boycott the HAMAS and Palestinian Authority “leadership,” which rule the Palestinians. They alone are responsible for the plight of the Palestinians. Israel does not rule them. She might also wanna check how women like her–who have sexual relationships with other women (she admitted to an affair with Tracy Chapman)–fare in her precious HAMASastan. Then, she’ll see some real apartheid.

I’m not sure why anyone is surprised by this far-left wench’s pronouncement. After all, she was a supporter of the HAMAS Gaza flotilla, in which Israeli soldiers were attacked and stabbed for no reason. And she is vehemently anti-Semitic and regularly appears as a speaker with her fellow Marxist America-haters and anti-Semites at Code Pink events attacking Israel and the Jews. Who needs her crappy book in Hebrew, poisoning the minds of Israelis? Better that they shouldn’t give this Nazi with a tan a single penny. Now, if only Israel could also get other warped radicals to stop getting their crap published in Hebrew, including self-hating anti-Israel Jew, Jonathan Safran Foer.

I guess Alice Walker doesn’t know Arabic. ‘Cuz in the Muslim world, she and the rest of the Black race are referred to as “abed” and “abeed,” which literally means slave and slaves, but is the Arabic N-word. I guess she forgot about who sold her ancestors into slavery and still enslaves them today: Muslim Arabs. Or about who tortured, gang-raped, and murdered most Black Christians in Sudan, then did the same to Black Muslims: Arab Muslims.

Her “The Color Purple” is frankly an enterprise of the sisterhood of the emptyheaded high priestesses of Marxist Black female hatred of Black men. The men were rapists, and lesbian relationships were a good thing in her book. And it’s no surprise that WNBA fans Whoopi Goldberg and Oprah Winfrey (and uber-Marxist Danny Glover) were its major stars. Shame on Steven Spielberg for making that manure of a movie. But, then, he made “Munich,” too.

Alice Walker can take her purple and all the other ugly colors and shades she brought with her and go to hell. If she lived in the Muslim world, she’d be lucky if the only colors she knew were black and blue and not bloody red. But she’s clearly never been to that world, or she’d know real segregation, real apartheid.

Oh, and by the way, this is what we Jews get as payback for Schwerner and Goodman and all the Jews who fought and died for her civil rights. Payback is a bitch. And the bitch’s name is Alice Walker.

Well said Miss Schlussel. Yes, Alice Walker can “go to hell” as far as I am concerned also. She is talking out her ass and has no idea what she is saying…

PDMac60 on June 19, 2012 at 10:43 am

Jews need to step up and stop helping black people. When my father worked in Harlem the Jewish store owners treated the black population very well. They practically bent over backwards. My father always wonder why they were so liberal.

Yet he realized payback would be coming when the blacks in Harlem robbed, shot or burned down Jewish stores.

Jews also need to stop supporting Barack Obama. He will continue to betray Israel and ALL Jews. Luckily Carter never got a second term. Lets make sure Barack does not get one.

Glen Benjamin on June 19, 2012 at 10:50 am

Frankly, Jews behave worse than the German Nazis. I am happy that more and more people all over the world come to this realisation.

Joe Monroe on June 19, 2012 at 10:57 am

    You and your Leftist ilk, next to the Muslim Brotherhood, are responsible for the world’s anti-Semitism.

    No kidding that Alice Walker finds a lot in common with the Palestinian Arab offshoot of the MB. I am not exactly surprised.

    The worst racists, to rephrase you, are far worse than the German Nazis because they behave exactly in contradiction to their professed ideals.

    The Walkers of the world make me sick!

    NormanF on June 19, 2012 at 11:41 am

    The man from Stormfront speaks.

    Joe Monroe please do move to either Nazi Germany circa 1938, or to any modern day Muslim country–Saudi Arabia, Gaza, Iran, Yemen, for example. Then you will experience first hand what you falsely and ignorantly accuse Israel of. I hope you are not gay because any of those regimes would have you executed or stoned in the streets. Israel protects gays, and in fact is a place that gay Arabs go to seek asylum.

    T. Traub on June 19, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    But Joey, you LIKE the “German Nazis.” Why use them as a pejorative?

    Dear Mr. Moron: Just exactly which Jews did you encounter who behave worse than the German Nazis and how did they behave that way?

    Miranda Rose Smith on June 21, 2012 at 8:38 am

However, I wish you would delete that fugly picture of Walker. It is rather nauseating…

PDMac60 on June 19, 2012 at 10:58 am

Another excellent article, Debbie. Your laser-like focus and precision of your points are completely unassailable.

DS_ROCKS! on June 19, 2012 at 10:59 am

Quick question Ms. Walker: If Israel is an apartheid state, why does it have elected Knesset (parliament) members who are arab muslim? Why are 20% of Israeli passport holders arab muslim and why are they allowed to vote and run for office? I thought apartheid means race based segregation and denial of rights. How can Israel be an apartheid state if Arabs there are allowed to vote and run for office?

I guess you’re too much of a chickenshit to answer that.Why let such minor 500 mile wide holes in your “apartheid” theory interfere with your Jew hatred and Israel bashing?

Ron M on June 19, 2012 at 11:00 am

Alice seems to forget…the book was translated in 1984 already. As an Israeli American living in Israel, I can tell you, NO ONE cares about a “new” translation in Hebrew! It’s been out for 30 years. FACT: More books are printed in Israel every year than in all the Arab countries combined except for the Koran of course!
So Alice go count your pennies from the Arabic translation….

Laurie on June 19, 2012 at 11:12 am


I’ll take the late Saeed Farfashe over Alice Walker any day. He was a proud Israeli who died working to protect his country.

He was a Muslim Arab from Haifa. Keep that mind the next time Alice Walker calls Israel a racist country. His four children are orphans thanks to the Islamic terrorist ilk Walker, etc. so proudly support.

I could care less if her book never gets published in Hebrew! Its a fact there are non-Jewish Israelis who give their lives alongside their Jewish brethren to protect the country.

That’s the true “Color Purple” of Israel!

NormanF on June 19, 2012 at 11:23 am

She’s a despicable person and a despicable mother. Read what her daughter has to say

Not Ovenready on June 19, 2012 at 11:27 am

Not Ovenready,

Good find… it figures Walker’s daughter knew her better any one else.

Why Jews need a stamp of approval from the likes of her, I can’t quite figure out.

And unlike Walker, I don’t only mourn for Jewish victims of Islamic terrorism, so my opposition to it has nothing to do with race.

Quite frankly, at her advanced age, the sooner she goes to hell, the better off the world will be!

NormanF on June 19, 2012 at 11:32 am

Thanks for pointing these facts about Alice Walker to us Debbie. I had no idea that she was this clueless. I should’ve known because to black liberal nuckleheads like her up is down and down is up. Like you said this idiot doesn’t know crap about Israel and how the muslims that she loves so much feel about her. If she did she would know that being the trifecta, black, female, and lezbo would get her in say Saudi Arabia beaten up or worse. In the “apartheid state” of Israel like here in America she would be free to live her sorry life as she sees fit. I will even bet my next paycheck that this moron is an Odummmer supporter. I guess Ron White was right. With people like Mz. Walker and other dumb liberals you can’t fix stupid.

Ken b on June 19, 2012 at 11:37 am

    Every Arab state is an apartheid state. How they treat people of color from the Third World who work as their “guest workers” is an open secret.

    But some people prefer to wear blinders. Israel was around long before Walker achieved her undeserved fame and it’ll be around long after she is gone.

    NormanF on June 19, 2012 at 11:57 am

The Red-Green alliance is a danger to world peace. That ain’t too far from the truth.

NormanF on June 19, 2012 at 11:43 am

Would it have killed her to at least have said that some of her best friends are Jewish?
Anyway, by now I’m sure Oprah has set her straight.

lee, of the lower case "l" on June 19, 2012 at 12:27 pm

    Actually some of her best friends ARE Jewish… beginning with her husband… Max Leventhal, I think (amicably divorced after 10 years). But she is a raving anti-Semite who has long lost her grip on balanced judgments. Another Jewish friend is the rabbi who invited her to deliver a sermon on Yom Kippur where her ferocious anti-Semitic blathering made small change of even Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s sentiments.

    Arn on June 20, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Love it when Debbie gets on a roll and let’s some anger out. The target is much deserving of her wrath. Walker gets a free pass for what I don’t know. Despite her awards, Walker does not appear to have any real brain matter.

Barry on June 19, 2012 at 12:42 pm

I had to read this book in college. It contains a really warped view of the world. But I don’t understand how it can be translated into any language. It barely qualifies as English. The book’s entire claim to fame is the slang style. Is there a slang equivalent in Hebrew?

salt1907 on June 19, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Alice Walker is an overhyped ass. Her Blackness Uber Alles naturalism was all the rage on college campuses back in the Eighties. She hates whites and appeals to those who do, including self-hating whites. That she joins the idiocy about Israeli “apartheid” adds insult to injury.

Seek on June 19, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Alice Walker has been living off the leftist cocktail circuit for years. She tells her audiences what they want to hear, and she gets compensated for it. She is one of the girls in a literary bordello. If she ever exited the place, her career would be at an end.

Worry01 on June 19, 2012 at 1:17 pm

Like other lefties who are anti-Israel, she’ll claim that she’s anti-Zionist and not anti-Jewish. Yet she would deny an opportunity for Jews who would like to read her book (why, I don’t know) in Hebrew? The claim is hogwash and just goes to show the left is clearly anti-Semitic.

Alan on June 19, 2012 at 1:20 pm

She’s clearly converted to Islam from the looks of the towel draping her head. Therefore, the anti-semitism would naturally follow suit.

CJ on June 19, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Alice who?

Infidel on June 19, 2012 at 2:06 pm

Perhaps Alice Walker should heed the words of the late exemplar of unity through diversity: ‘can’t we all just get along’?

But I guess only certain people are supposed to get along, and only on certain terms.

BRUCE on June 19, 2012 at 2:29 pm

Debbie, I hate to admit it, but you’re right on this one! Alice Walker is way off base, especially in comparing modern day Israel to past American segregation and South African Apartheid. Please! But maybe it’s a good thing Ms. Walker’s man-hating drivel won’t be published in Hebrew. The less read and the less said about that book, the better…

    Maya, you’re right it is Alice Walker’s book and she has every right to publish it, but guess what Maya, the folks in Israel also have a right to NOT buy her propaganda book that’s bashing Israel.

    And since you called us “barbarians”, do you know the exact meaning of the word barbarian? The word barbarian means-“savage or uncivilized people”, that simple and last I checked, NONE of us including the blogger herself are NOT barbarians.

    And you’re also right that it’s none of our business what her sexual orientation is, where NOT calling her out on her sexual orientation, we are calling this woman out on her actions, motives, behavior, etc. that’s it and I really don’t give a shiite what Ms. Walker’s sexual oreintation is Maya, so enough of you’re leftists clap-trap!

    Sean R. on June 19, 2012 at 8:54 pm

    Maya, she can do what she wants. What Alice Walker is not free from is being criticized for what she does. She is not an infant, but she is a hard boiled anti-Semite. Also, did you get the dog comment idea after doing dolling yourself up in front of a mirror today? Just Asking? Finally, try working on your literacy.

When Steven Spielberg made the film “Munich” he purposely and falsely depicted the Israeli Olympians shot to death at point blank range by arab terrorists as sadly looking (unblindfolded, and working on untying themselves as bullets flew and a helicopter exploded nearby) at the terrorist in the helicopter door aiming a Russian-made Kalashnikov assault rifle at them – not as what occurred: the captive Israeli Olympians were blindfolded; bound and tied to the helicopter and to each other; and SCREAMING THEIR LUNGS OUT with what little strength they had left after 22 hours of torture, while German ‘police’ clearly heard their cries for help and refused to move in and eliminate the terrorists (the German government set free the three surviving terrorists a few months later, in collusion with more arab terrorists). The German government also refused to allow Israel to send their crack anti-terrorist unit to the scene to rescue the Olympians.

David Berger survived the volley of terrorist bullets and even the grenade tossed into the helicopter he was tied up in. The Germans, including the ‘police’ in the decoy plane who abandoned their post and watched from a safe distance) refused to put out the fire and save him. His legal death certificate clearly states he was alive and screaming for help “for a very long time” as he died slowly of “smoke inhalation”, as the Germans stood back and let Jews die in Germany. Spielberg made the front cover of major magazines and megabucks over his shameful garbage. He couldn’t show the truth, because that would have humanized the inhuman acts of the arab terrorists.

In 2011, it was revealed that a German police officer had the Olympic Id card of Eliezer Halfin in his possession until his death. His son returned Mr. Halfin’s card to his sister in Israel. 39 years of theft is a long time, but the world still waits for the return of more Israeli Olympic personal effects they are keeping.

Also: somewhere in Germany is a film of the entire debacle at Fürstenfeldbruck. The German government has kept it hidden. If there is ONE person of character in Germany, it or a complete copy of the film will be mailed to a family member of one of the murdered eleven Israeli Olympians.

A. on June 19, 2012 at 4:01 pm

Really nice piece there Ms. Schlussel. I have to say, these liberals are in quite the little echo chamber. But history is not on their side. They are the dying embers of the so-called revolutionaries of the Sixties who hated their own wealth and privilege as citizens of the world’s most powerful nation.

Ms. Walker claims to understand “apartheid” because she “grew up black”. Yeah right. She doesn’t understand anything except how to milk Whitey for every last cent on the basis of liberal guilt.

There are decent people world and indecent people in it.

Those who suck up to Islamic savages have a special place all of their own.

I saw the movie in the 80s when it came out and I could never make heads or tails of it.

Does any one really care this is not literature and its just very badly disguised racism? We know the Left goes for this sort of thing.

Which reminds me of the old true and trite saying, there’s no accounting for taste.

Israel should be proud Walker turned it down!

NormanF on June 19, 2012 at 7:27 pm

Thank you for the article, Debbie. I also agree with all the posts that agree with it. Indeed this is both Walker’s loss and Israel’s gain.

Why anyone would read that rotten book or see that rotten movie is beyond me.

Little Al on June 19, 2012 at 10:41 pm

Yes, Alice Walker is just a classic Hate-America, Hate-Israel, Love-Hamas, Love-Hezbollah, Love-al Queda Leftist. You know the type. You know just what they think. You know exactly what they will say.

In their perverse world, the Muslim terrorists of the world are like David, and Israel is like Goliath. In the diseased mind of the Leftist, Muslim terrorists are the poor victims responding to the Nazi treachery of the evil Israel State. Anyone publicly willing to espouse such views will find an open and receptive Leftists media that will gladly serve as a powerful mega-watt amplifier and wall of speakers to such noxious noise.

According to Alice Walker, Israel is the Little Devil and the United States is the Big Devil:

“I think Israel is the greatest terrorist in that part of the world. And I think in general, the United States and Israel are great terrorist organizations themselves.” Foreign Policy; June 20, 2012.

No big surprises here. LIbs love movies and books like “The Color Purple” because they can rub all the past b.s. in everyones face. But as your article rightly points out, they’re countrymen did and continue to be their own worse enemy. It’s so convenient to try to point their fingers at others, knowing full well it’s their own people that still prey on their communities more than anyone else. When the movie first came out I was disgusted at the horrible scenes of mistreatment by Danny Glovers character. Had to turn it off and wonder who the hell watches that stuff. This woman just highlights the lefts mental illness that thrives in her circle.

    So did Henry Kissinger, Yasser Arafat, and Barack Obama. What is your point Greg? It long ago became a worthless award. Also, in celebrating Alice Walker’s flagrant anti-Semitism, what are you exactly? You should look in the mirror when you start chuckling about bigots.

      Worry01 on June 20, 2012 at 8:35 pm

Debbie, I’m writing these lines with some reluctance. Alice Walker is an important and talented African-American writer. Her decision is terribly unfortunate – far more for her in how she will one day be remembered, than for us here in Israel. Her passionate identification with those committed to our destruction by whatever means is already seen as a passionate identification with those committed to the destruction of everything American. Today the ersatz Palestinians in their collective persona as victims win the minds with such as herself. She lets herself be used, manipulated and brainwashed. When the applause dies away and the Muslims have no more use for her, she will be left only with the indelible stains on the person she let herself be.

I would invite her to a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon where the unfortunates there have been festering in hopeless squalor for over 60 years – and have her compare what she sees there with what she saw in Gaza. It would be interesting to learn if she would have any objection to a Lebanese publisher introduce her book.

Arn on June 20, 2012 at 1:42 pm

    Arn, have you actually read “The Color Purple”. Rape, Racism, Lesbianism, and the other old things you need to put a formula book together. Stephen King is famous for this. He gave us a female ghetto black amputee having sex with some white guy while braving the dangers of….etc. That is not talent Arn.

    Or, why not look at The Color Purple itself:

    “He start to choke me, saying You better shut up and git used to it. But I don’t never git used to it. And now I feels sick every time I be the one to cook.” Part 1, pg. 11

    or this really classy one:

    “All the men got they eyes glued to Shug’s bosom. I got my eyes glued there too. I feel my nipples harden under my dress. My little button sort of perk up too. Shug, I say to her in my mind, Girl, you looks like a real good time, the Good Lord knows you do.” Part 2, pg. 82

    Thank you BookRags for the help.

    This is not great literature. At the time the novel was published, more than a few Blacks were very insulted by the vulgarity of the work as well as the stereotypical way in which Blacks were portrayed in it.

    If the Color Purple is great literature, Richard Wright’s Bigger Thomas was a “Renaissance Man”

    Worry01 on June 20, 2012 at 5:47 pm

      Yes, I read the book. I confess I enjoyed it. Listen friend, how different is the strength and extremism in Walker’s writing than in Debbie’s writing? Yet we do let Debbie’s writing carry us if only because it is easier for us to identify with her words, however unrestrained they may be. But if you followed my reply earlier to “lee, of the lower case “l” you would have read what I thought of her (and several others).

      “Actually some of her best friends ARE Jewish… beginning with her husband… Max Leventhal, I think (divorced after 10 years). But she is a raving anti-Semite who has long lost her grip on balanced judgments. Another Jewish friend is the rabbi who invited her to deliver a sermon on Yom Kippur where her ferocious anti-Semitic blathering made small change of even Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s sentiments.”

      This lady is a professional hater. Believe me, this sick lunatic would have had no problem managing Hitler’s ovens.

      Arn on June 21, 2012 at 1:51 am

        … and if someone was to say that Hitler was a genuinely talented painter, would you argue with that? Same thing here. History will not be kind to Alice Walker.

Dave on June 20, 2012 at 11:41 pm

Just exactly where in Israel did Ms. Walker encounter segregation? Has she ever been here? If she has, I’m sure she knows perfectly well that Israel is the least apartheid country on the planet and the only country in the Middle East where the writings of a Black lesbian feminist could be published. How much of Ms. Walker’s work has been published in Arabic? It’s a samll world and if anybody out there knows Alice Walker, please show her this.

She calls the siege of Gaza an “attack on the common heart.” What does she call the rockets fired at Sederot? If the Gazans don’t want the Israelis to shoot at them, all they have to do is stop shooting at Israel. Nothing the Jews ever do, short of disappearing off the face of the earth, will ever get the Arabs to stop shooting at them.

Walker supported the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and offered her hope that the BDS movement “will have enough of an impact on Israeli civilian society to change the situation.” . . .

Ms. Walker realizes, perfectly well, that Israelis are the decentest people on the planet, that most of them are horrified by racism, that many Israelis, particularly left wing Israelis, if accused of apartheid, will cave in and say “Oh, no. We don’t want to act like those horrible, evil white South Africans. We’ll let the Arabs walk in and slaughter us.”

She’ll get the Jews slaughtered, which is what she wants. But Ms. Walker must suffer from a horrible death wish herself to want Israel destroyed. How long does she think a Black, lesbian feminist will last in a world run by her precious Arabs? Talk about nurturing a viper in your bosom! She’ll get her payback them.

Miranda Rose Smith on June 21, 2012 at 8:03 am


It’s a small world and if anybody out there knows Alice Walker, please show her this.

Miranda Rose Smith on June 21, 2012 at 8:56 am

if it’s such a terrible book (which you haven’t read, so how you can have an opinion is a mystery) and the author is such an “anti-semite” for having political opinions about the Israeli government, why would it be being published in Hebrew in the first place?

I’d put money on her being able to sell a lot more books in Hebrew than you ever could – and she doesn’t need to ask for donations either.

Brian Smith on June 21, 2012 at 3:52 pm

The racism involved with this post and the comments of the supporters herein is astounding. If you disagree with Walker because you feel she’s not as educated regarding Israel and it’s torturous past, then it’s within your rights to discuss your thoughts and why. It is completely uncalled for to pinpoint your reasons with hate and emphasize it with racial slurs.

I want to believe that people are inherently good especially in my own country, especially in America. I struggle every day to do so. But talk like this? Talk that debases another person for the sole reason of being different and having differing opinions? Every human atrocity in the history of mankind has one thing boiling at the heart of it: hatred. And what you’re saying here, my friend, while only a pinprick of it, is still hatred nonetheless.

Wow. Just… wow. The amount of anger and hate in this little diatribe is astounding. If you say you have never read “The Color Purple” then how can you bash it? It doesn’t promote lesbianism. You probably watched the movie, which doesn’t even show it, and heard about the other assumptions you made from the Internet. Good job. Now you’re gullible and a bigot.
Simply put, don’t negate an author, book, etc., and especially not a whole race based on your disagreeing with her political views. All of us black people didn’t get together and make her our spokeswoman. Should the world decide that all Jews are “_______” because some actually worked in the concentration camps while their comrades were killed en masse?

This article was written some time ago but felt compelled to respond. I’m half Jewish (like Alice Walker’s daughter) and I must say that I have found this article from Debbie Schlussel and a lot of the responses here very disturbing and racist (to African-Americans and Muslims). I don’t agree with some of Alice Walker’s views myself but would never say anything as disrespectful and vile as the comments mentioned here. It is also worth pointing out that prominent Jews such as Miko Peled and Jon Stewart have criticized the Israel government, so that doesn’t make you anti-semitic. If so, I guess we are all self hating Jews.
