This one slipped onto the backburner for me: the Simon Wiesenthal Center has complied 2011’s top ten anti-Israel and anti-Semitic slurs. There are much more offensive statements on the list, but our old friend the Rev. Jeremiah Wright comes in at No. 10:
10. “The state of Israel is an illegal, genocidal place… to equate Judaism with the state of Israel is to equate Christianity with [rapper] Flavor Flav.”
– Rev. Jeremiah Wright in a speech to thousands of people, June 14, 2011, Baltimore, Maryland.
