William Ayers, Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. headline Mideast peace rally

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.

The two men shared the stage for one of the first times at First United Church of Oak Park during a forum before the annual walk.

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

. . .

Organizers with the Committee for a Just Peace in Israel and Palestine said the two men, along with a Jewish activist and an Arab attorney, were invited for their work on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, not their political notoriety. They did, though, draw a crowd of more than 400 that filled the church.

Not unlike the view espoused by Obama, huh? I wonder what that means? Think they’re friends of Israel?

Committee for a Just Peace in Israel and Palestine

The Committee for a Just Peace in Israel and Palestine is a diverse, community-based group dedicated to organizing local activities and educational events that advance the cause of peace and justice for both Palestinians and Israelis. We support efforts for resolution of this conflict that combine vision with pragmatism. At this point in time, we have adopted, as the most hopeful path toward evolution of a just peace, the following organizational principles:

Support for equal rights and access to resources for all inhabitants of the region, based on principles of social, economic, environmental, and political justice.

Support for peace and justice activities in Israel, Palestine, and the U.S.

An end to the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem, in accordance with international law and U.N. resolutions.

An end to U.S. policies that sustain the occupation.

International support for an equitable and just negotiation process.

A resolution to the Palestinian refugee issue in accordance with international law and human rights principles.

An end to all forms of terror: state, organizational, and individual.

/in other words, just get under the damn bus Israel!
