Reverend Jeremiah Wright touted “Boycott, divestment, and sanction” of Israel while arguing “Jesus was a Palestinian” and “Apartheid is going on in Palestine” at Saturday’s Justice or Else! Event in Washington, DC.
Wright stated, “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 who’s [country] it is, and make it their’s because their God told them that they could have somebody else’s country.”
He added, “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. 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.”
