Even Martin Luther King himself was confused on this issue. When we attacked Israel he said “Any attack on Israel, no matter how you camouflage it, is anti-Semitic.” Poor King was confused. He was very confused. To attack Israel has nothing to with antisemitism. But we can understand King could not take the position we took. King’s support came clearly from Zionists who didn’t say they were Zionists. But of course, any attack against Israel would have meant serious problems for King. But for us we had nothing to worry about except the truth. So King himself was confused.
