Ridgewood NJ, the death of unarmed black man George Floyd at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer was a flash-point for US race relations, setting off massive protests that spread around the world, including Ridgewood .
The demonstrations endorsed the simple messages that “black lives matter”, that the blood of minorities is not cheap and the injustices they face, past and present, must be addressed much more vigorously.


Some Jewish residents in Ridgewood have voiced concerns over Black Lives Matter calls to end US military support for Israel, which it terms an “apartheid” state that is perpetrating “genocide … against the Palestinian people”, among other things. Black Lives Matter also endorses BDS, and calls for “targeted sanctions in line with international law against Israel’s colonial, apartheid regime” and worse.

Black Lives Matter activists have also claimed that Israel trained US cops to use deadly strangleholds an allegation so transparently malicious and fabricated. Black Lives Matter activists have consitantly made antisemitic comments during a marchesin Washington DC and beem  caught vandalizing and defacing synagogues and Jewish-owned businesses in Los Angeles with antisemitic messages during a protest.

Ever since Black Lives Matter issued a platform in 2016 which described Israel as an ‘apartheid state’ that commits ‘genocide,’ the Black Lives Matter movement has regrettably become intertwined with anti-Semitic tendencies, which detracts from their underlying mission.

  1. The death of an combative assailant with a record of violent crime named George Floyd set off massive rioting.

  2. We are a society that has lost our curiosity.
    If you would like to regain some curiosity go to the Black Lives Matter webpage and read what they stand for. If you are not curious, just keep following the mob.

  3. BLM is ethno-nationalist org with roots in Muslim brotherhood. They hate Jews and Israel. Many Americans don’t realize it, but Israel is generally a very liberal state. Between 90s and 2000s, Israeli liberals drove the government policy, vacating Palestinian lands and offering a 2-state solution. They were met with Palestinian resistance instead. That failure of liberal leadership ushered in current conservative government. We in the US should learn from Israeli experience. You can never give enough to have BLM satisfied. A free society is an affront to Islamists like BLM. They won’t stop until we’re in as much ah!t as they are.

  4. “ We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”

    The rejection of nuclear family structure is a huge problem. Who is raising your children? “It takes a village” is not a working plan. You are setting children up for failure.

    “ Yet it is well known that children who grow up in single‐mother families have different socioeconomic circumstances to those living with both parents and this is, at least in part, because they live with a single mother: single motherhood is linked to reduced income, a high risk of poverty, worse maternal mental health, poor parenting practices, and a range of other disruptions, such as home and school moves and multiple family transitions (Hill, Yeung, & Duncan, 2001; McLanahan, 2009).”

  5. The Jewish residents of NJ have good cause to be unsettled regarding BLM, and the rampant anti-semitism they believe in.

    However, they should be more concerned with the Democratic party’s anti-semitic position. There has never been so much as a “no” spoken by Democrats against attacks being made against Jews. Anyone remember the Hanukkah celebration a few months ago? Shaheen; Cortez; De Blasio; Omar; Warren; Biden and yes, Obama and his cohort of Rev. Wright, Sharpton et al, they are all as guilty as sin of failing to condemn, and in fact outright support of such attacks.

    The evil grew the same way in 1933 – Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravening wolves. Oust the Dems!
