Ziggy Marley is a disgrace to Rasta.

Ziggy Marley continues to disgrace Rasta and the Rasta movement by his continued support of the atrocities being committed against the Palestinian people.

There is a saying that Rastas don’t deal with “ism” and “schism”. For Ziggy Marley, however, it surely seems like he put the ism in Zionism. To Ziggy Marley, the “Holy Mount Zion” that Rastas speak, sing and chant of, might as well be “Holy Zionism”.

The Rasta movement created by Marcus Garvey, Leonard Howell, Joseph Hibbert and others was created to fight against injustice. So how can a man claiming to be a Rasta stand and staunchly support injustice? That is exactly what Ziggy Marley is doing in his support for apartheid Israel.

This month, the imitation Rasta man received an award from the Jewish National Fund in Los Angeles. the accepting of the award was no big deal, but the utter rubbish he echoed during his acceptance speech was a total disgrace (see video below).

It is difficult to fathom, that a grown man does not understand that the people in Exodus of the Old Testament are not the same as the Europeans who have stolen the Palestinians land. Obviously the Jewish National Fund paid Ziggy to publicly support the genocide of the Palestinians. Ziggy should have heeded the words of his father: “Don’t gain the world and lose your soul.” Ziggy sold his soul to the devil and you can bet the price is cheap.

With a straight face, Ziggy says he will continue to support Israel “no matter what anybody says or does”. So the Israelis can continue to bomb the crap out of Palestinian children, women and elderly; Ziggy Marley will continue to support the atrocities. To make matters worse, he is giving his support in the name of Rasta, which is a total insult to Rasta.

Ziggy can continue to refer to himself as a Rasta but for those who understand Rasta, it is clear that he is the farthest thing from Rasta.

  1. Thank you for your true words. It is our responsibility to love and protect life – and that includes the Palestinians and other indigenous peoples around the earth. Rasta don’t work for no CIA …….

  2. I dont think you understand Rasta. This is a hateful article. It’s as bad as Trump saying All Muslims are bad, just because some are part of terrorists groups. All the people in Israel are not bad. Bobs Music was just not for blacks it was for humankind, one love. This article is a disgrace.

  3. He just expressed that he and is family, like the whole of InI are connected to Israel, he never said he agreed with the Israeli modern government and its war on palestinian. shame on you for creating hate. fiya bun

  4. Seriously??? Who ever write this is a hater in every sense of the word; where’s your award, millions of sold albums and worldwide fans huh?

  5. As a Rasta we are taught not to judge another mans/womans livity. Who are we to judge him, it funny how this article resembles the same context when his Father did the One Love Concert. Ziggy is truly a reflection of his dad and who are we to accuse him of not being a Rasta. I have friends that are from Israel and they dont show hate towards Palenstine at all, there is good and evil in everything. I feel that this letter is full of malice towards Ziggy and also towards the good people who are living in Israel. There are Rasta living in Israel so must we hate them also.

    • I saw videos right on youtube with a huge gathering of the people in Israel hating big time on black people…spitting on them, making hate speeches about them getting the hail outta Israel and the whole 9yards of hate…the good people u speak of must have all stayed home on all those videos I watched. There were even speeches about them even paying them (the black people) to leave from Israel…so much trouble in de world 🙁

  6. Actually, you are a racist, an antisemite and the farthest thing from Rasta! And just for your information, the vast majority of Jewish Israelis are from Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Morocco, Egypt and Turkey. 2 million of them came in the early 1950s to a country of 600,000 Jewish Israelis, of which about 400,000 had or were descended from people from Europe. The European Jews have close or identical DNA with Palestinian Arabs and virtually no common DNA with non-Jewish Europeans. Learn some history!

  7. Have you not heard about the 12 Tribes of Israel. Do you know the true history of that land. In your country of institutionalised racism please leave Israel the promised land alone. We love the land not the politics. We love the good people there. We love their Sabbath

  8. Nice to see this article, Ziggy is being used a tool by the evil Zinonists who have been found guilty by international courts of all sorts of attrocities against the people of PALESTINE, stealing land killing innocents, the list is endless.. Shame on you Ziggy Marley and all apologists of the inhumane regime.
    Until the philosophy which hold one race superior
    And another
    Inferior
    Is finally
    And permanently
    Discredited
    And abandoned –
    Everywhere is war.
