Things That Make Me Go Hmm

A Jewish rabbi is calling out a Muslim lawmaker — who has been accused of anti-Semitism — and the New York Times for pushing the notion that Jesus was a Palestinian.
Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate and director of Global Social Action Agenda at the Simon Wiesenthal Center, called out Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. after she retweeted a tweet from Omar Suleiman […]

Suleiman wrote that his relative asked: “Don’t they know Jesus was a Palestinian?”

The day before the tweet, a New York Times op-ed claimed: “Jesus, born in Bethlehem, was most likely a Palestinian man with dark skin.”

Cooper accused the NYT of “fake news” and said both are trying to “rewrite” history with the claim.
“Palestine was a name made up by Romans after they crucified thousands, destroyed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and exiled the People of Israel from their homeland,” Cooper told the Jewish Journal.

Others called out Omar following the retweet.

“No, Jesus was Jewish, actually,” Fred Menachem, a media commentator wrote. “I’m a bit surprised that a Congressperson would retweet false and inaccurate information.”

The account for Students Supporting Israel said: “Is it for real? Jesus was a Jew. What’s next? The Pope is also Palestinian? Stop lowering our IQ.”

The NYT and Omar are not the first to make that claim. Jeremiah Wright, the controversial pastor who preached at a Chicago church attended by President Barack Obama, claimed“Jesus was a Palestinian” years ago at a Nation of Islam event.


Linda Sarsour gets backlash for ‘Jesus was Palestinian’ tweet

Controversial left-wing activist Linda Sarsour is under fire for claiming “Jesus was Palestinian.”
The Brooklyn-born Muslim Women’s March co-founder claims she is a victim of “hate” after a 24-hour Twitter debate this weekend on the roots of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

“Jesus was Palestinian of Nazareth and is described in the Quran as being brown copper skinned with wooly hair,” the anti-Israel political activist tweeted on Saturday.

Sarsour has lauded Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan, objected to the Jewish right to return to Israel, and even called for “jihad” against President Trump. But this time she argued Jesus is both Jewish and Palestinian, saying Palestinian is a nationality and Judaism is a religion.
