New York, September 25, 2019 – “You’re telling me to leave the African-American community?”
“You can’t leave a person who has lived there for 100 years,” she said.
“We need to work with the community.
We’re not going to make a mistake with that.””
I have never been afraid to say that we’re not here to divide people, but we are here to serve,” she added.”
I am the one that was told, ‘I’m not going out, I’m not coming in.’
That’s how I see it.
It is what it is.
I have never had to be a part of a boycott.
I’m here to make sure that it’s not a problem.”
New York-based author Lina Emi Esfandiary is a member of the United States’ largest Jewish community and is a regular contributor to the Jewish newspaper Haaretz.
She has also written for The Wall Street Journal and the Jewish Telegraphic Agency.
She is the author of The Black Woman, an autobiography about her childhood in Harlem.
In an interview with Al Jazeera, she said she had never had a racist incident.
“We are in a war against the black man.
We are not fighting against the white man, we are fighting against his enemy, and I do believe in God.
He is fighting the white supremacy, the white genocide, the racial oppression, the sexual assault of women, the death of black men and the genocide of the black people,” she explained.”
But that’s why I am here, because I am an African- American woman.
And I’m sick of seeing white people get away with it.
They should not be allowed to run the country.””
And when they do, it will become even worse.”‘
I will never give up’She is one of several Jewish women who are speaking out about how they are being subjected to an institutionalised campaign of “white genocide” and other forms of racism and discrimination.
In addition to her book, Esfandaari has also spoken out about the ongoing attacks on the civil rights movement and the efforts of white supremacists to prevent the rise of a diverse, multi-racial, multi‑ethnic, multi‐faith society.
“The war against us is on, it’s happening now,” she told Al Jazeera.
“And I will never forgive myself for that, for that is what we need to start.
Because we are losing the war, and we need the white people to start coming back, to come back to fight.”
The Jewish community is facing a crisis of conscience, she added, which can only lead to more of the same.
“In order to stop it from happening, we have to say it out loud, to show people what we are doing,” she concluded.
“And that is why I’m speaking out.”
