Obama’s ‘mentor’ Jeremiah Wright enlightens DC: ‘Jesus was a Palestinian’

Obama’s favorite America-daming pastor Jeremiah Wright argued Saturday that “Jesus was a Palestinian” during his speech at the Justice or Else! event in Washington, DC.

“We are grateful to God to be able to be here and to speak a word on behalf of Palestinian justice,” Jeremiah Wright, who once served as pastor to President Obama, began in his remarks on the National Mall.

“Please remember, Jesus was a Palestinian, the Palestinian people have had the Europeans come and take their country, ignoring United Nations resolutions, after resolution, after resolution, over 40 resolutions, and illegally occupied territories, as they take the people whose [country] it is, and make it theirs because their God told them that they could have somebody else’s country,” Wright said.


The fiery Chicago-based pastor and numerous other speakers gathered at the rally, which was hosted by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, to mark the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March.

Wright also touted “boycott, divestment, and sanction” of Israel while arguing and “apartheid is going on in Palestine.”

“Boycott, divestment, and sanction is how we fought non-violently to bring an end to apartheid in South Africa. Apartheid is going on in Palestine as we sit here,” the reverend said. “There’s 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.”

He likened the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States to Palestinians in Israel.

“Palestinians are saying ‘Palestinian lives matter.’ We stand with you, we support you, we say God bless you,” he concluded. “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.”
