Democratic Senator, Kamala Harris, is a presidential candidate for the next run out. She is making waves with her apparently fearless desire to take on the corrupt status quo. But is she all that she would like us to believe?
Harris has stated that she will not be prostrating herself (Rebel Voice‘s words) before AIPAC, as so many other presidential candidates have done, in the campaign for the White House. Yet AIPAC has recently visited the offices of Kamala Harris. Is she engaged in deception where AIPAC is concerned?
On the Israeli supreme court buildings, she had this to say;
‘The Court, like Israel, is a beautiful home to democracy and justice in a region where radicalism and authoritarianism all too often shape government.’
Harris is also on record as opposing the humanitarian movement known as Boycott, Divest, Sanction (BDS), which opposes Israeli policies of Apartheid and ethnic cleansing.
She has been a strong advocate for Zionism in the past with this admission at the AIPAC convention of 2017;
‘So having grown up in the Bay Area, I fondly remember those Jewish national fund boxes that we would use to collect donations to plant trees for Israel,’
‘Years later when I visited Israel for the first time, I saw the fruits of that effort and the Israeli ingenuity that has truly made a desert bloom.’
So, somehow, Kamala Harris has managed not to see the policies of ethnic cleansing that Israel has undertaken throughout its brief and forced history. She has missed the Apartheid and the brutality. She has not heard and does not know, it seems, of the documented slaughter by Israel upon Palestinians, most recently in the Gaza Strip. Rebel Voice wonders if Harris has given any thought to where the water comes from to make her stated desert bloom? Does she realize that it has been stolen from Palestinians?
It should be noted that the Jewish National Fund, that Harris was fundraising for, is a notoriously rabid Zionist organisation that has misused the term Jewish to give credibility to its sordid Zionist agenda.
Apparently, Kamala Harris is oblivious to the truth when it suits, and this will always favour Israel. Although not in any way conclusive, it must be pondered (given the unfortunate close correlation between some of those with a Jewish identity and Zionism) if her Jewish husband, Douglas Emhoff, has had any influence upon her political positioning in respect of Israel? Is he Zionist and, if so, to what degree?
The following report from Mondoweiss takes a look at Harris‘ interaction with AIPAC.
Last Thursday Senator Kamala Harris accepted the challenge from MoveOn and other groups and said she was skipping the AIPAC conference. MoveOn and Jewish Voice for Peace had slammed Benjamin Netanyahu’s racism, Israeli war crimes– also AIPAC’s opposition to the Iran deal– in making the demand of US politicians especially those running for president.
