Rev. Wright: Oops, I Meant ‘Zionists’
Real Clear Politics reports:
Reverend Jeremiah Wright corrected his comments in which he said “Jews” were not allowing him to speak with President Obama. Wright says he “misspoke” and it is actually the “Zionists” who are preventing him from talking with the President.
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.
