Early on, BLM sided with the Palestinian people, stating that they "will do what they must to live free lives." A tweet on X (formerly Twitter) stating as much was tweeted, then deleted, before BLM eventually doubled down on its initial support for Palestine.
"Yesterday we sent out msgs that we aren't proud of," tweeted BLM Chicago. "We stand with Palestine & the people who will do what they must to live free. Our hearts are with the grieving mothers, those rescuing babies from rubble, who are in danger of being wiped out completely."
In that tweet, BLM included a Palestinian flag emoji followed by three heart emojis in the color of the Palestinian flag. Meanwhile, no Israeli flag or colors were shown, suggesting BLM is talking specifically about the grieving mothers and babies in Palestine who now face potentially losing their lives at the hands of the invading Israeli military.
(Related: The Western financial media claims that Iran is behind all of this, but others, including former Israeli military servicemen and Ron Paul, say the United States and Israel itself are responsible for the creation of Hamas back in the 1970s.)
In another tweet responding to an X post from someone stating "I PRAY FOR ISRAEL," BLM Chicago prayed as well, though much differently.
"Us too, God please unharden Israel's heart & help them to stop bombing children & taking over people's homes & building fences, God please help them see the beauty & peace that can come of ending genocidal behavior."
That reference asking God to "unharden Israel's heart" presumably comes from Romans 11:25 in which the apostle Paul writes that God himself intentionally blinded Israel "in part ... until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in," referring to the end of the Church Age and the start of the Time of Jacob's Trouble.
In a way, BLM is correct with its prayer, though it misses entirely the part about how "beauty & peace" can only come through the true Messiah, whom most of Israel, politically speaking, denies and rejects, hence the need for the Great Tribulation to melt the scales off the eyes of the remnant.
Meanwhile, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is pitching a fit by claiming that "white supremacist leaders" are somehow "openly celebrating Hamas's attack on Israel, cheering explicit depictions of violence against Israelis and promoting brutality against Jews worldwide."
If the ADL is referring to BLM, well, perhaps it needs to define for clarity what it means by "white supremacist leaders."
Several other chapters of BLM have made statements on X as well in support of Palestine, which some media sources are erroneously claiming means they support "Hamas." Contrary to popular belief, not all Palestinians are members of or support Hamas, even if they oppose Israel's demand that they leave the land where they have lived for centuries.
"... when a people has been subject to decades of apartheid and unimaginable violence, their resistance must not be condemned but understood as a desperate act of self-defense," tweeted BLM Grassroots following the Hamas attack, though there was no condemnation or even direct mention of Hamas or what it did, hence the outrage from those who support Israel at all costs and believe that all Palestinians want to murder Jews.
