According to Amnesty International, hundreds of US law enforcement officials have gone through training in Israel, while thousands more have been trained by Israeli forces in the United States.
Neta Golan, co-founder of International Solidarity Movement, is quoted as saying:
“When I saw the picture of killer cop Derek Chauvin murdering George Floyd by leaning in on his neck with his knee I remembered noticing when many Israeli soldiers began using this technique when we were protesting in the West Bank sometime in 2006.
Israel pioneered the knee-on-neck hold that killed George Floyd. It is not an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory to say so. It is true.
Starmer is a Racist Hypocrite
Barely two weeks ago Starmer ‘took the knee’ in solidarity with Black Lives Matter. This was an empty and meaningless gesture. He issued a video statement quoting Martin Luther King that ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ Starmer even expressed his support for BLM.
In 2016 BLM called Israel an apartheid and genocidal state and supported BDS. For this they were criticised as anti-Semitic by Zionist groups. Starmer is echoing this criticism of BLM.
Clearly injustice to the Palestinians does not feature on Starmer’s horizon. That is why this pompous, starched-white representative of the British establishment needs to go.
In April 2018 Black Lives Matter forced Starbucks into excluding the Anti-Defamation League from training their staff following the arrest of two Black men for ‘loitering’ bya Philadelphia coffee house.
Starmer has just demonstrated that Labour is a pro-imperialist pro-Zionist party. That is why he must go.
