TEHRAN -The Zionist lobby in the US has begun a new wave of attacks on the Pulitzer Prize-winning black author and essayist Alice Walker for supporting the Palestinians in her new book titled ‘The Cushion in the Road’ and also writing a letter to the American singer Alicia Keys asking her not to travel to Israel.

The wave of Zionists’ attacks on Walker came after she asked Alicia Keys to stay away from a music concert in Israel and instead hold it in the Gaza Strip for the Palestinians and also compared Israel’s mistreatment of Palestinians to the behavior of the Nazis during the World War II, Eelaf news website reported.

Walker’s book titled The Cushion in the Road is a series of essays on varying topics containing 80 pages on the Israeli brutalities against the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories.

“I want the Israeli government to be made accountable for its behavior toward the Palestinians, and I want the people of the United States to cease acting like they don’t know what’s going on,” Walker wrote in The Cushion in the Road. (Alice Walker on left)

“All colonization, all occupation, all repression basically looks the same, whoever is doing it. Our heads cannot remain stuck in the sand,” the American author said in her book.

Last month walker wrote an open letter to American R&B singer Alicia Keys, urging her to boycott Israeli “apartheid”.

“It would grieve me to know you are putting yourself in danger (soul danger) by performing in an apartheid country that is being boycotted by many global conscious artists,” she wrote in her letter to Keys.

Walker, who participated in the Civil Rights Movement, has long criticized Israel’s mistreatment of the Palestinian people, which she has compared to Black oppression in the United States, and has traveled to West Bank and Gaza to protest.

Last year, she refused to allow her award-winning classic, The Color Purple to be translated into Hebrew by an Israel publisher, in protest of Zionism and what she called Israel’s “apartheid” policies.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
