Jeremiah Wright, Cornel West Join Islamists And Anti Semites To Promote The Global March To Jerusalem

March 9, 2012

MIM: The Global March To Jerusalem is an internationally orchestrated attack on Israel and will invariably turn very violent. Israel will be blamed for trying to defend itself against an influx of Islamists, anti semites, and agitators. It should be noted that there is already a fifth column in Israel consisting of "Israeli" Arabs who pose a grave security threat to the country which has provided them with the most freedom and highest standard of living of any nation in the Middle East. These Arabs will agitate from within Israel and aid and abet the efforts of outsiders to disrupt and destablise Israeli life and ellicit worldwide condemnation of Israel.

Besides Jeremiah Wright and Cornel West, Sheikh Raed Salah is also on the board of advisors of the GMJ. Salah is head of the Islamic Movement terrorist tied organisation and was jailed by Israel in 2003 for funding Hamas and having contact with an Iranian intelligence agent. In a newspaper interview in 2007 he repeated the Passover matza blood libel. Salah has continually incited Muslims to use violence against Jews. In 2010 Salah was part of the Gaza flotilla in which Israeli soldiers who boarded the ship he was on were attacked and nearly lynched.

MIM:Jeremiah Wright was Barack Obama's pastor for twenty years. According to a report on Arutz 7 (Israel National News)the White House refused to comment on Wright's endorsement of the march:

"Wright, of "God Damn America" notoriety, has also asserted on ABC News that the U.S. brought on the 9/11 attacks with its own "terrorism."

He has also made openly anti-Semitic statements saying Jews have robbed him of his influence over Obama, "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office."

"[T]he Jewish vote, the A-I-P-A-C vote, that's controlling him," Wright also has also claimed." http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/153725

MIM: Cornel West is a close friend of the notorious anti semite Louis Farrakhan leader of the Nation of Islam and served on the advisory board of his Million Man March (in which Barack Obama participated). Farrakhan recently spoke at UCLA Berkeley as a guest of the Black Student Union and told the audience that Jews "control government and media sectors" . http://english.alarabiya.net/articles/2012/03/12/200200.html

He supports militant black nationalist causes:

"West was born in 1953 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. From a young age, he proclaimed that he admired "the sincere black militancy of Malcolm X, the defiant rage of the Black Panther Party ... and the livid black [liberation] theology of James Cone."

In 1995 West was a signatory to a New York Times ad voicing support for cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, a former Black Panther. http://www.discoverthenetworks.org/individualProfile.asp?indid=813


MIM: An excerpt from the GMJ mission statement:

Join thousands of Palestinians and supporters from all over the world who will be marching on March 30, 2012, to oppose Israeli apartheid and ethnic cleansing, to demand access to Jerusalem for all peoples, and to uphold Palestinian rights under international law, including refugees' right of return.

We, the Advisory Board of the Global March to Jerusalem, are alarmed and deeply troubled by the continuing repression of Palestinians in Jerusalem and by the deliberate and systematic attempts to expel and reduce the Christian and Muslim Palestinian population of the city as part of the policy called "Judaisation," which is being applied to every part of historic Palestine... http://www.gmj-na.org/home.html (click on link for complete statement).

MIM:"The only ones doing the ethnic cleansing - the only ones who can't live with anyone else - are the so-called Palestinians. They are the ones who truly practice apartheid & the systematic cleansing of Jews, Christians, and all other non-Muslims!"
