“When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism!”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., October 27, 1967, at a Civil Rights rally in Boston, Mass

“The response of some of the so-called young militants does not represent the position of the vast majority of Negroes. There are some who are color-consumed and they see a kind of mystique in blackness or in being colored, and anything non-colored is condemned. We do not follow that course ... Peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all our might to protect her right to exist, its territorial integrity and the right to use whatever sea lanes it needs. Israel is one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security, and that security must be a reality."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., March 25, 1968,
Speaking at the 68th annual convention of the Rabbinical Assembly
