Dumisani Washington on MLK and Zionism

Anti-Zionist civil rights activists dishonor Dr. King's legacy | Dumisani Washington | The Blogs | The Times of Israel

'In sharp contrast to Angela Davis’ characterization of the Jewish State, Dr. King had this to say on March 25, 1968 (ten days before his assassination):

Peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all of our might to protect its right to exist, its territorial integrity. I see Israel, and never mind saying it, as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land almost can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy.'
