Hamas endorses Obama's ex-pastor's anti-Israel remarks
In comments made to WND on Wednesday, leaders of Hamas supported the anti-Israel statements last weekend by President Obama’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright Jr..
Speaking Saturday at a Washington rally hosted by Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, Wright slammed Israel as an apartheid state that must be boycotted and declared “Jesus was a Palestinian.”
Two Hamas officials were contacted by phone for comment on Wright’s remarks. Neither had heard about Wright’s statements, but when the pastor’s full remarks were read to the jihadists, both were enthralled by his sentiments.
Senior Hamas leader Salah Bardawil, who is also a member of Hamas’s parliament, declared Wright was correct that “Israel is definitely an apartheid state.”
“It’s enough to see roads in the West Bank to see there are roads for settlers and for Palestinians,” Bardawil said.
