Jeremiah Wright, who was President Barack Obama’s pastor before it was too politically uncomfortable for him, bellowed that “Jesus was a Palestinian” at a Saturday rally featuring Islamic leader and anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan.
Farrakhan ranted for more than two hours, telling tens of thousands of followers that he invokes the name of the Islamic prophet Mohammed in peace, although the rally was held under the intimidating slogan of “Justice of else.”
The “else” is as close to incitement as one can get without yelling “fire” in a crowded theater, excerpt that in the case of the United States today, the fire is not theoretical.
Wright took the stage and focused his 4-minute speech on “Palestinians” and compared black in Ferguson with Arabs in Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Wright stated:
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.
Farrakhan, who spoke from behind a bullet-proof glass and with a bodyguard on each side of him, praised the Black Lives Matter movement, railed against abortion,.
He also condemned arrogance, and although this may sound like a very politically incorrect racist statement, the cliché is very apt:
Look who is calling the kettle black.
Farrakhan also lectured the masses against materialism. His net worth is estimated at more than $4 million, and he earns approximately $336,000 a year, according to the Richbutbroke.com website,
