Israel’s war against Black women

With the drugging of our Ethiopian Sisters in the Israeli transit camps Israel has very much declared a war against Black people. All politicized euphemisms and Western blindness for Israeli terrorism aside… telling women they’re getting inoculations while you’re in fact shooting birth control up their bodies is nothing short of forced sterilization. This horrific violation of medical ethics and human rights needs to be on the worldwide radars of politics, Black feminism, Pan-Africanism and all bridging territories. Also, both Europe and the USA need to stop Supernanny-ing Israel.

And no, I absolutely don’t believe that the medical cocktails the women were given ‘only’ contained birth control. The Israeli government expressed a lot more hatred with a lot less discretion so let’s not underestimate how serious they are when it comes to ‘protecting their own’. Their wars against The Other are infamous and until the Western media emancipates itself from its race and religion driven subjectivity we can’t allow ourselves to become casualties of their 6 o’clock news. Let’s be very aware of who we’re allowing to influence our ideas about hierarchies of relevance and/or oppression.
