ZOA: JESSE JACKSON'S COMPARISON OF ARAFAT TO GEORGE WASHINGTON, MANDELA AND MOSES IS APPALLING
NEW YORK - In a recent statement issued by Jesse Jackson, Jr., founder and President of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition, he stated: "We grieve the passing of the leader and father of the Palestinian people, Yasir Arafat. He did much during his life on earth; his legacy will live forever...against the odds, he built a people from identity crisis to a state, much like George Washington and Mandela...Chairman Arafat rose from a rootless beginning like Moses...and led his people from darkness to light..."
ZOA President Morton A. Klein said: "it is shocking that Jesse Jackson would compare Yasir Arafat, the father of modern international terrorism, airplane hijackings, and one of history's biggest killers of Jews, to George Washington, Nelson Mandela and Moses. Arafat, a man who was banned from the White House for his evil and terroristic actions, should not be receiving praise from a Christian Reverend.
"We now wonder how sincere was Jackson's apology for having called New York 'Hymietown', having said he was 'sick and tired of hearing about the Holocaust', and having called Zionism 'a poisonous weed.'"
Commie pinko scumbag...
Jesse Jackson should look at himself in the mirror and compare himself to Judas, Trotsky, Rasputin. He is the American Rasputin...I am sick and tired of charlatans like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
Jesse HiJackson.....Shakedown artist for the radical left????...NO....for himself!.
this so-called civil rights leader...is just a plain ignorant unsophisticated jack-ass.
I agree that Arafat and Mandela are cut from the same cloth.
I do not know why people refuse to believe that Mandela is a tool of the communist.
I often wish things were like the Libs think they are. Unfortunately, reality is much different.
So that dumbass Jesse actually believes all of that 'father of his people' crap!
I never realized the dumbass was really a dumbass!
Jesse the Scumbag missed his chance to swill the Kool-aid at Jonestown. He has the same mentality as Jim Jones and HIS family of victims.
For this Jackass to support this sort of behavior from over here only encourages more of it from over there. If this jerk (and those like him) would just shut the hell up, we'd have a chance to accomplish something good for both sides.
Same thing went on duruing the Vietnam War
Left wing leaders were calling Ho Chi Min the Vietnamese Washington
Hey Jessie, which group of people with an identity crisis did Mandella transform into a new nation?
Since when is it considered that the loyal subjects of the crown in the colonies had an identity crisis?
And while we're at it, just a little reminder...
Yasser Arafat is the single reason separatist Arabs don't have a state of their own today.
Will he be remembered? Of course he will. Yasser Arafat created Hamas and about ten other terrorist groups, which have caused death and mahem throughout the region. These main terrorist groups have splinted off into hundreds of cells that bring death and mahem to the planet today.
You can celebrate this if you like Jessie.
Jesse The Scumbag was back here in Ohio this week declaring that the Ohio presidential vote should be discarded because it wasn't"legal" he also wants Secretary of State Ken Blackwell dumped because Jesse consideres him inept. Blackwell is a Black Republican who is a leading candidate to run for Ohio Governor in 2006 and a rising star in Republican politics. I heard him speak at a fund raiser. He is a fiscal and social conservative. Therefore he is on the Jesse" the gangbanger" hitlist
(BTW - What is this 'WE' bidness all 'bout, anywez?)
