The BLM Organization Files

Important Note: The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) strongly opposes anti-Black racism. We believe that Black lives – and all lives – matter. Indeed, ZOA President Morton Klein fervently fought for Black civil and voting rights since his college days. The phrase, “Black lives matter,” is true – just as Jewish lives matter and every life matters. This webpage is not about the phrase “Black lives matter.” This webpage is about something entirely different: the extreme Jew-hatred, Israel-bashing and antisemitic violence perpetrated by the Marxist “Movement for Black Lives” (M4BL) organizationand the organizations that comprise and are intertwined with M4BL, including the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization and “Dream Defenders.” These organizations have ties to a designated anti-Israel Marxist terror organization responsible for murdering Jews – the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) – and to PFLP front groups Al-Haq and DCI-Palestine. We must continue to combat the evils of anti-Black racism – while calling out organizations that incite hatred against Jews and Israel.

BLM Org’s Antisemitic Activities Include:

  • BLM org falsely accuses Israel of “ethnic cleansing,” “brutal” conduct, conducting a “Gaza massacre,” “apartheid,” “theft,” and “one-sided slaughter” and “wholeheartedly endorsing” anti-Israel anti-Semitic boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) – in social media and elsewhere, and in the “Movement 4 Black Lives” (M4BL) platform, which has never been abrogated.  BLM org is a major group in M4BL.
  • BLM-Los Angeles’ leader instigated the pogrom in which BLM org destroyed and defaced synagogues, Jewish schools, and Jewish shops and businesses in LA’s Fairfax district, which has a large Jewish population.
  • BLM org joined “Days of Rage” demonstrations calling for Israel’s destruction “from the river to the sea” in multiple U.S. cities.
  • BLM/M4BL orgs and their partner groups (such as “Dream Defenders”) met with, have connections with, participated in anti-Israel demonstrations in “Palestine” with, and disseminate anti-Jewish, anti-Israel propaganda of the Marxist, murderous designated terror group Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (“PLFP”) and PFLP front groups (including Al Haq and DCI-Palestine).
