Alan Dershowitz om Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter must rescind anti-Israel declaration (Jerusalem Post)

"It is a real tragedy that Black Lives Matter – which has done so much good in raising awareness of police abuses – has now moved away from its central mission and has declared war against the nation state of the Jewish people. In a recently issued “platform,” more than 60 groups that form the core of the BLM movement went out of their way to single out one foreign nation to accuse of genocide and apartheid...

...Until and unless BLM removes this blood libel from its platform and renounces it, no decent person – black, white, or of any other racial or ethnic background – should have anything to do with it. We should continue to fight against police abuses by supporting other organizations or forming new ones. But we must not become complicit in the promotion of anti-Semitism just because we agree with the rest of the BLM program.

To support an organization or movement that promotes anti-Semitism because it also supports good causes is the beginning of the road to accepting racism. Many racist groups have also promoted causes that deserve support."
