CAIR and other Muslim Brotherhood front groups have been trying to worm their way into the current no-justice-no-peace uproar ever since the trouble began last summer in Ferguson, Missouri. The latest wrinkle involves an NFL star named Reggie Bush, who entered the debate to promote an equivalence between the “youths” of Ferguson and the “youths” of Palestine.
Of course! It’s obvious — why didn’t I notice the resemblance before?
A “youth” in Ferguson shoplifts from a store, roughs up the owner, attacks a cop, tries to take his gun, and gets shot for his efforts.
“Youths” in Palestine set up launchers, fire rockets at schools with them, and get shot (well, some of them do) for their efforts.
Yes, come to think of it, the two places have a lot in common.
Here’s the report from Algemeiner.com:
As the town of Ferguson, Missouri, woke this morning to the sight of burned out cars and stores, following a night of rioting in protest at a Grand Jury decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, pro-Palestinian activists were quick to co-opt the tragic events – even managing an endorsement from an NFL star.
Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush posted a photo on social media site Instagram of a man holding a sign that reads, “The Palestinian people know what mean to be shot while unarmed because of your ethnicity #ferguson #justice.”
Bush added his own perspective: “No matter who you are, what color skin you have, where you live, we are all in this together! This isn’t a Ferguson problem it’s a Global Problem! We need change NOW! What happened to humanity? #JusticeForMikeBrown.”
As violence enveloped Ferguson, Palestinians and their supporters took to Twitter to share photos of pro-Palestinian banners carried by protestors…
The “Ferguson-Palestine” link has been pushed by left-wing activists ever since the fatal shooting of Michael Brown on August 9. A letter from Palestinian activists published on the anti-Semitic Electronic Intifada website – among them Diana Buttu, a legal adviser to the Palestinian Authority, which was funded to the tune of $440 million by the U.S. government in 2013 – ended with the following declaration: “With a Black Power fist in the air, we salute the people of Ferguson and join in your demands for justice.”
