At an event Saturday on the National Mall in Washington dubbed “Justice or Else,” President Obama’s mentor, retired Rev. Jeremiah Wright, called Israel an apartheid state and said “Jesus was a Palestinian,” reports Jerusalem Post.
At the rally, held on the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March and hosted by another anti-American and anti-Semitic firebrand, Rev. Louis Farrakhan, Wright said that African-Americans, Native Americans and Palestinians have all suffered under the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism”:
“The same issue is being fought today and has been fought since 1948, and historians are carried back to the 19th century … when the original people, the Palestinians — and please remember, Jesus was a Palestinian — the Palestinian people had the Europeans come and take their country.”
