Rev. Wright: Oops, I Meant ‘Zionists’

Real Clear Politics reports:

It was Martin Luther King Jr. who wrote: “When people criticize Zionism, they mean Jews — this is God’s own truth.” I always thought that King was perhaps painting with a bit too broad a brush, but his statement does seem rather apt in the case at hand.

RCP has the audio of Wright’s so-called explanation.

Here’s the Associated Press’s report on the Wright remarks.
