Alice Walker, the author of “The Color Purple”, is praised & often asked to speak because of her support for Palestinians despite her public, unapologetic association with David Icke & his anti-Semitic political ideas. Icke believes the world is run by extraterrestrial reptiles incarnated as Jewish bankers called the Illuminati. Apparently Walker agrees with that rubbish. To my mind, Palestinian solidarity should disassociate from Walker just as it does from David Duke, the KKK white supremacist who publishes videos supporting Palestine. He is motivated solely by hatred for Jews. We don’t know what Walker’s problem is but it doesn’t matter. She compromises Palestinian solidarity with the political syphilis of anti-Semitism. She should be told to take a hike until she severs her relations with Icke, his hatred for Jews, & his association with fascism.
