Martin Luther Kings letter to an anti-zionist friend is a Hoax

Posted by avideditor on January 18, 2011

There are some real quotes in it but some of it is not true. I am against all hoax like the Al Dura one. Even if it seems to be in our favor. MLK was a righteous enough man and good enough to the state of Israel that the is no need for falsehoods.

Jews like Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel (pictured above with the beard) marched with Martin Luther King Jr. on the road to civil rights. Rev. King marched with the Jews on the road to a secure Israel.

About eight years ago, I was writing an article for Jewish World Review and quoted parts of the famous Martin Luther King Jr. Letter to an Anti-Zionist Friend. Just as the article was about to run I got an e-mail from Editor-in-Chief Binyamin Jolkovsky informing me that the letter was a hoax, he sent me the article from CAMERA quoted below.

The bad news is that Binyamin was correct (he usually was). The good news is that Dr. King was a supporter of Israel and the Jewish people. That famous line from the letter “When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You are talking anti-Semitism.” was uttered by Dr King, just not any letter. Over the next few days you will read various posts containing the letter but you should remember, most of it does not contain the words of the great Civil Rights Leader. The good news however, is it does contain his sentiments.

A Letter to the Pope about the Arizona law enforcing federal laws of immigration

Posted by avideditor on April 29, 2010

For here 😉 24 Carrot Blog: My Letter to the PopeI am not a xtain and it is still a good read. Cross posted with permission. “The following is a copy of the message I sent by e-mail to the Pope at his public e-mail address.

Your Holiness,

I am a citizen of the state of Arizona and a believing christian. I take great exception to the recent pronouncements of a Cardinal of the Catholic Church, posted at his bloghttp://cardinalrogermahonyblogsla.blogspot.com/ . His comments are not only ridiculous and hateful, but are in my view are thoroughly and utterly insulting to all Christians and his statements also bring shame on Christians on account of having been publicly posted by a high-official of the Church.

I ask that you clarify the Church’s position on these pronouncements. To that end I pose these questions:

1. Does the church affirm the Cardinal Mahony’s apparent contention that a free people have no moral right to democratically enact and subsequently enforce laws intended to defend themselves against acts of violence committed against them by outlaws who are also foreign nationals? Where in the scriptures will I find validation for this contention?
