Speaker at Louis Farrakhan’s “Justice or Else” rally today in Washington DC on Saturday, President Obama’s former long time pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright claimed that “Jesus was a Palestinian.” After opening his speech with a Muslim greeting, Wright went on to compare African Americans in the United States to the Palestinian people.
“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.
“The youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine have united together to remind us that the dots need to be connected. And what Dr. King said, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, has implications for us as we stand beside our Palestinian brothers and sisters, who have been done one of the most egregious injustices in the 20th and 21st centuries.
“As we sit here, there is an apartheid wall being built twice the size of the Berlin Wall in height, keeping Palestinians off of illegally occupied territories, where the Europeans have claimed that land as their own.
“Palestinians are saying ‘Palestinian lives matter.’ We stand with you, we support you, we say God bless you,” Wright said.
