Is this guy for real??
The Rev. Jeremiah Wright, former pastor of President Barack Obama, offered the traditional Muslim greeting — “salaam alaikum” — at the beginning of his speech at the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March in Washington on Saturday.
Then the pastor emeritus of Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ launched into an appeal for “Palestinian justice” and for blacks to stand with them.
Not mentioning Israelis, he called Palestinians the “original people” — and then offered the crowd a reminder.
“Please remember, Jesus was a Palestinian,” Wright said.
He added that Palestinians are fighting against those who say “their god told them they could have somebody else’s country,” calling it “one of the most egregious injustices in the 20th and 21st centuries.”
Wright also said that youths in Ferguson, Missouri, and youths “in Palestine” have “united” and that blacks should join them.
