Nation of Islam Research Group: Dwight Howard, Superman, & the Palestinians (2014)
'Dwight Howard, superstar, basketball player for the NBA Houston Rockets, was blasted in the Jewish media recently for expressing his desire to see the Palestinians free. After having been sent pictures of the carnage being inflicted on the Palestinians Howard tweeted “#freepalestine” to his millions of followers.
Amar’e Stoudamire of the New York Knicks, who is Jewish and even funded an Israeli basketball camp, was forced to delete an Instagram picture from his account of Israeli Palestinian children walking arm in arm with the caption “Pray for Palestine.” Metta World Peace, formerly of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Indiana Pacers, and one of the most renowned defensive players in the history of the NBA, and a current free agent, was also forced to recant his statements supporting the Palestinians after receiving a withering backlash. Superstar singer Rihanna was forced to delete her support for peace in Palestine eight minutes after posting it on her website.
All of these global superstars were forced to submit to Jewish pressure to reverse their heartfelt desire for the ending of the carnage heaped upon the children of Gaza. However, the bulk of the venom was preserved for Dwight Howard. Mr. Howard, a graduate of the Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, has said he wanted to use his NBA career and Christian faith to “raise the name of God within the league and throughout the world.” He established the Dwight D. Howard Foundation to provide scholarships for underprivileged children who want to attend Atlanta’s Christian Academy. He also travels to children’s hospitals throughout the United States inspiring children to reach for their dreams, and he serves as National Ambassador for Big Brothers Big Sisters. In addition, he helps to promote literacy as part of the NBA’s “Read to Achieve” program.
The Zionist Organization of America, one of the oldest Pro-Israel organizations in the U.S. has 30,000 members. By contrast, Dwight Howard has 5 million Twitter followers and he was forced to back down and delete his tweet and apologize. ZOA President, Morton Klein told TMZ Sports that Howard’s apology was not enough. “He should be publicly condemned as strong as Donald Sterling was… Anyone who uses the phrase “Free Palestine” is either ignorant of the situation or hates the Jewish state of Israel. It’s a hateful position.” Does this mean that the late Nelson Mandela, South African Bishop Desmond Tutu, former President Jimmy Carter, are also Israel haters for saying that Israel is an Apartheid state and treats its Arab and Christian subjects as second class citizens?
What about U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry who told a room of influential world leaders “in a closed door meeting” that Israel risks becoming “an apartheid state” if there is no two–state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
Should Alice Walker, one of the world’s greatest writers, be labeled anti-Semitic because she believes Israel is “guilty of apartheid and persecution of the Palestinian people,” and “Israel is the greatest terrorist in that part of the world.”'
