Jeremy Wright, Bill Ayers Team Up for Peace Hate-Isreal Rally

As a Dennis Miller joke goes, Ayers and Wright are a lot like a Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin reunion. I wasn't a fan of their earlier work, and I'm not sure I want to see the new stuff, either.

The day before President Barack Obama was to meet with Israel's prime minister, community activists, clergy and residents marched through Oak Park on Sunday to call for a just solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

And they were led in their efforts by a politically provocative pair from Chicago: Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. and William Ayers.

...

They urged a rethinking of the Mideast conflict, a shift in perspective that's not unlike the view espoused by Obama.

...

"We can't be squelching viewpoints because they are unpopular or because someone has a reputation through Fox News," said Caren Levy Van Slyke, a spokeswoman with the group.

Wright drew parallels between Trinity's part in the struggle against apartheid in South Africa and the current campaign to bring about peace in the Mideast.

...


The remarks earned Wright a standing ovation and a handshake from Ayers, an education professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, who spoke of the need to create a curriculum of questioning that reveals a "reality that is always messier, always more complicated."

The instant question is whether Israel is right to call for Hamas to demonstrate seriousness about reducing terrorist attacks before a genuine peace -- real peace, not a hudna during which weapons are stockpiled and more attacks plotted -- can go forward.

Shockingly, Bill Ayers finds this fundamental question -- whether terrorist attacks on civilians is a legitimate tactic in the quest for "peace" -- "more complicated" and "messier" than many.

Thanks to AHFF Geoff.

A Just Peace with Holocaust Deniers and Israel Eliminationists: 40% of Israeli Arabs -- Israelis themselves -- don't think the Holocaust happened, and just barely 50% grant that Israel has the right to exist as a state at all.

And that's their state, incidentally, so a good chunk of that "support" for Israel is of course predicated upon full and total control of the state formerly known as Israel by Muslims.

Which isn't really support of the state of Israel's right to exist at all.
