On his WABC Radio show this past Sunday, Aaron Klein offered $50,000 to an organizer of the upcoming Global March to Jerusalem — if the activist could name one city in the Middle East outside of Israel that has more freedom than Jerusalem.
The March 30 event aims to storm Israel’s borders to “demand freedom for Jerusalem and its people and to put an end to the Apartheid, ethnic cleansing and Judaisation policies affecting the people, land and sanctity of Jerusalem.”
Endorsers of the Global March include President Obama’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright; Cornel West, a longtime friend of Obama who served as an advisor to the president’s 2008 campaign; and Medea Benjamin, co-founder of Code Pink. According to certain reports, Iran is also heavily involved in organizing the march.
Here’s the YouTube clip of the exchange between Klein and march activist Frank Romano, who is organizing the portion of the march that seeks to infiltrate Israel from the Qalandia checkpoint, at the border that leads from Ramallah to Jerusalem.
