Those who believe in the national restoration of Israel as a fulfillment of biblical prophecy, or even just as a necessary haven for the Jewish people after millennia of persecution, those people are no better than Nazis.
That according to Black Lives Matter (BLM) demonstrators who were found spewing their venom outside the studio of Fox News in New York City last week.
“You’re full of lies. You’re all racists. You’re Nazis. You’re Zionists. You’re KKK,” the leader of the protest was heard shouting over a loudspeaker as those with him held photos of Fox News journalists.

It’s not the first time those involved in BLM have spouted what amounts to not only anti-Zionist, but outright antisemitic rhetoric.
Earlier this year, one of BLM’s more recognizable and prominent activists, Prof. Marc Lamont Hill, posted a video in which he acknowledged:
“Black Lives Matter is very explicitly talking about the dismantling of the Zionist project…and very explicitly embracing BDS (the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement) on those grounds.”

Hill is a seasoned mainstream media commentator, and knows how to measure his words. The “dismantling of the Zionist project” can ultimately mean only one thing, as all Israeli Jews know: Israel’s destruction.
More recently, Israel’s Diaspora Affairs Minister Nachman Shai lamented that if liberal Jews in the United States continue to align themselves with movements like BLM, “we may lose America.”
Unfortunately, Shai does not see Evangelical Christian as an adequate counterbalance to this problem, and insisted that long-term Israel could not rely on “other groups.”
