To make matters worse is that 600-plus Jewish groups are on record supporting this anti-Semitic hate group.
Marc Lamont Hill Says That Black Lives Matter ‘Explicitly’ Looking To ‘Dismantle’ Israel and ‘Embrace’ BDS Movement
By Daily Wire, February 16, 2021
On February 6, the Democratic Socialists of America hosted an online panel discussion titled “DSA, BDS, and Palestine Solidarity.” One of the panelists was Marc Lamont Hill, a professor of media studies and urban education at Temple University and outspoken Black Lives Matter activist, who admitted that one of the explicit goals of the Black Lives Matter movement was to “embrace BDS” and “dismantle” the Jewish State of Israel.
“This generation of activists say ‘No, let’s defund. No, no, let’s abolish. Let’s imagine new possibilities,’ and one of the new possibilities that they’ve imagined, um, is a world where, that is anti-imperialist,” stated Hill.

“They don’t want to just nation build, but they want to world make,” he continued. “And so Black Lives Matter very explicitly is talking about the dismantling of, um, of the Zionist project, dismantling of a settler-colonial project and very explicitly embracing BDS on those grounds.”
The deliberate mischaracterization of Israel as a colonialist “settler” state is part of an anti-Semitic smear used to delegitimize Israel’s right to exist. According to the “working definition of anti-Semitism” provided by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) — a definition adopted and endorsed by the United States State Department under the Biden administration — this form of rhetoric is “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination,” an example of anti-Semitism. In addition, the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction (BDS) movement has been criticized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), who have stated that “BDS advocates employ antisemitic rhetoric and narratives to isolate and demonize Israel.”
Earlier in the panel discussion, Hill also said that “our fates are bound up with one another,” that “at the analytical level we understand that we can’t dismantle white supremacy or imperialism ‘section by section,’ that these systems don’t have passports or visas, they don’t stop at borders, that these are international transnational movements,” and that there was “no way to stop a settler colonial movement in Palestine and not be mindful of its relationship to a settler colonial project in New Zealand or Australia or the United States.”
Hill then continued to imply a connection between systemic police racism and Israel.
