The dailymail.com of the United Kingdom reported recently that the White House sent a message to members of the Black Caucus to "skip" Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress on March 3. Syndicated columnist, author and conservative political activist Star Parker says this "sends a powerful message to Americans—especially the black community—that being black requires opposition to Israel.
"Members of the Black Caucus have agreed to make a spectacle out of Israel and walk out of Benjamin Netanyahu's speech," Parker said. "We must not let this happen. We must show the media that the black community is NOT united with the president nor the Black Caucus.
"Like abortion, homosexual marriage and gun rights, African-Americans are once again not represented by the black liberal leadership. We need to tell the truth! Blacks have long supported Israel—Dr. Martin Luther King was outspoken in his support of Israel and today there is a street named for him in Jerusalem. We can destroy the impact that the Black Caucus will have when they walk out.
On Thursday, Parker plans to hold an emergency press conference with many black pastors whom she invited to Washington, D.C.
"In front of the media, we will stand firm with Israel," Parker says. "And we will stand against the Black Caucus who want to try to speak for the black community."
Parker is feverishly attempting to raise funds for the press conference by Thursday. She says it will cost a total of $25,662 to do so, and she already has raised more than $16,000. If you wish to donate to this cause, please click here and visit urbancure.org.
"You know we will get the media's attention," Parker said. "We did it before when black pastors stood with me in support of gun rights. We did it again when we demanded Congress to protect black babies and black women from predatory abortionists. Your sponsorship of this press conference will go a long way to change our culture."
