Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King was a committed Zionist in his lifetime.

There’s ample footage of the civil rights titan, stating his support in the clearest possible terms for the state of Israel.

This isn’t at all a subject for debate or dispute.

What wasn’t too clear is whether this support was borne out of the great friendships that he’d made over the course of his journey as the leader of the greatest ever movement for change in the United States of America.

But what was clear about Dr. King was the degree to which his politics veered from mainstream acceptability to radical anti-capitalism and anti-militarism in the final years of his life.

Reverend king did recognize that the United States of America was (still is) the greatest purveyor of state terrorism in the world and was prepared to put his head above the parapet and criticize his own government.

His anti-militarism not only put him at odds with the government of Lyndon Baines Johnson, who was intent on escalating the Vietnam war in the 1960s, but also with the American people too.

At the time of his death on the 4th of April 1968, it was said that Dr. King was the most loathed man in America.

Since 1968, the military-industrial complex has grown in leaps and bounds, and has permeated every facet of American life.

Its media arm has been quite exceptional at spreading half-truths and lies to an ever gullible public.

So many wars have been waged under false pretexts and millions have been slaughtered in order to maintain America’s dominance in far flung parts of the globe.

It would seem that whatever the British failed to do has been taken to its logical conclusion by the American empire. This is especially true in Indonesia, Cambodia, The Democratic Republic of Congo, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and of course the State of Israel.

Left to the British political class, Israel might not have existed in its current form.
