Obama’s Ex-Pastor: Israel Is Apartheid State, Yoshka ‘Was A Palestinian’


jeremiah wrightJeremiah Wright, US President Barack Obama’s former pastor, called Israel an apartheid state and said that Yoshka “was a Palestinian” at a rally in Washington hosted by the Rev. Louis Farrakhan.

At an hours-long event on Shabbos on the National Mall titled “Justice or Else,” Wright said that African-Americans, Native Americans and Palestinians have suffered under the “three-headed demon” of “racism, militarism and capitalism.”

“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 [Yoshka] Jesus was a Palestinian — the Palestinian people have had the Europeans come and take their country,” Wright said, The Hill reported.

“The youth in Ferguson and the youth in Palestine have united together to remind us that the dots need to be connected,” Wright also said.

“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.”

The rally marked the 20th anniversary of the Million Man March, a mass gathering of black men spearheaded by Farrakhan, who has a long history of anti-Semitic remarks.

Wright, who retired in 2008 as pastor of Chicago’s Trinity United Church, which Obama attended from 1988 to 2008, also called Israel an apartheid state.

“Apartheid is going on in Palestine. As we sit here, there is 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,” Wright said.

He concluded: “We are grateful to God to be able to be here and to speak a word on behalf of Palestinian justice. Palestinians are saying ‘Palestinian lives matter.’ We stand with you, we support you, we say God bless you.”

Farrakhan said at the rally that blacks were too forgiving of their abusers.

“Find me a Jew who forgives Hitler,” the Nation of Islam leader said. “And they say they’re the children of God, and they don’t have no forgiveness in them.”

Times of Israel



  1. Now tell me that Obama who attended and enjoyed the sermons of this white- and jew-hater didn’t have the same values. No wonder he loves Iran and hates Israel.

  2. This could very well explain the basis for President Obama’s anti-Israel sentiments. This hate-monger used his pulpit to spew his anti-US/anti-Israel venom and ignorance. Someone should take a poll of the members of his congregation to see how they view the US and Israel. Of course, it’s also possible that Obama picked this hate-monger’s church because it reflected his own views.

  3. The blabbering moron could have said that Yemach SHmo Vzichro was black because the Jews are somehow supposed to be all black. Well, there is always next time. One time a mythical palestinian, another a mythical african american Jew; not a problem for a black racist Jew-hater with a really short attention span.

  4. It behooves me that Mr. Obamba sat in this guy’s audience for 20 years and has gotten no negative impression. Even his defenders believe so!
    How would Robert Gugante have said in his descriptive analytical rant? Too bad he died before the 44th president took this country to the abyss.

    (Robert Gugante went by the name Bob Grant, for those who don’t know! )

  5. For twenty years President Obama listened to the sermons of this hate-filled, bigoted, anti-Semitic nutjob and didn’t notice anything amiss? I bet he was shocked – shocked! – at this latest spew.

  6. This is the nonsense Beheima used to listen to for years. Wonder why we haven’t heard from this wacko for the last 6 years.obama must have paid him off to keep his mouth shut. Now that he has one foot out the door he roved the muzzl.

  7. The Temple never stood
    The holocaust never happened
    Yoshka was a Palestinian
    (Obama loves Israel)

    Say it a few thousand times till you believe it!

  8. Obama broke with Wright years ago and Wright has never forgiven him. Wright badmouths Obama all the time. All the matzav commenters who hate Obama are on Wright’s side.

  9. #11 “Charlie Hall October 13, 2015 at 12:53 am” Fact check time: 1) Obama broke with Wright years ago and Wright has never forgiven him. False. More than a year after the “break”, Wright accused “The Jews” of keeping him and Obama separated and predicted reconciliation once Obama left office. 2) Wright badmouths Obama all the time. Wild exaggeration. He’s criticized Obama a few of times, most famously in his “I have a drone” speech, but certainly not “All the time”. 3) All the matzav commenters who hate Obama are on Wright’s side. False. This is exactly the same as saying Jews who criticized Henry Ford’s Nazi infatuation ” Sided with the Nazis” due to the fact that Ford’s plants later helped the U.S. World War 2 efforts. Unfortunately everything this poster says must be fact checked.
