Prominent civil rights activist and Christian minister Jesse Jackson urged Americas Arab community on Wednesday to stand up and fight for their rights.
We are the new America, said Jackson, speaking at the second annual banquet of the Arab-American Civil Rights League, according to U.S.-based daily Detroit Free Press. Love yourself. Stand up and fight back.
He slammed what he called the madness of racism that has led to Arab Americans having their bank accounts closed and being put on no-fly lists.
Jackson told the banquets attendees that Arab Americans must protest the closure of their bank accounts. You must not retreat You are Gods people. He said.
Earlier this year, the league announced the filing of a lawsuit against an Ohio-based bank which it said improperly closed accounts of hundreds of people of Middle Eastern descent.
Jackson has worked with Arab Americans across the U.S. for several decades, working to gain their vote during his presidential run in 1984 and 1988.
One of Jacksons senior campaign advisers during his presidential bid was James Zogby. Today, Zogby heads the Arab-American Institute as its president.
Zogby said during the event that Arab-Americans have a voice America needs to hear.
Arab is not a race.
Jesse really doesn’t want to know what they think about him.
They might want to be careful about that fighting back thing. They’re outnumbered by middle eastern Christians in the Detroit area these days.
The spirit of Confusion is strong with this one....
He refers to the “madness of racism”.
He practices the racism of madness.
Arabs are ethnically classified as Semitic Caucasians.
They think they’re the whitest white folks there ever was. It’s in their Koran that Profit Mohammed was the whitest white guy there ever was.
Arabs are racists. Period. To them, Jesse Jackson is a “raisinhead”. That’s in their Koran, too.
Good going Jesse, but beware.
Those moslems might just get together and cut your nuts out.
“He slammed what he called the madness of racism that has led to Arab Americans having their bank accounts closed and being put on no-fly lists.”
From the same jacksonass who was relieved by footsteps that were white, not black
Having a hard time inciting violence in the usual places, eh JJ?
The camel-jocks certainly picked-up quickly enough on the Jackson-Sharpton ‘race-baiting’ tactics.
Any criticism of, say, the arabic practice of walking into a crowd and rudely exploding is ‘Islamaphobic’, but see the latest from the Dept. of Homeland Security’s Mohammed tearing into “xenophobic Tea Party Christians” with our patriotism and other destructive beliefs.
Don't worry Jimmy boy. Americans heard the ragheads' voices loud and clear on 09-11-01.
And Jesse Jackson is not a Christian.
Sorry for the following - IF WHITE,HETERO,CHRISTIAN, TAXPAYERS DON’T REBEL IN FORCE TODAY - NOT IN THE FUTURE - WE WILL BE SOONER NOT LATER BE A CESSPOOL LIKE THE MID EAST. Jim Rogers states how we are 2nd tier country. My good friend in telecommunications says the same. I hear on the radio from my bunker in south OC how bad the streets are in Los Angeles (little Tijuana)but they are going to build a high transit bullet train to nowhere instead of fixing that problem. Are we going to capitulate like Russia did? I say that we will. I see a nation of weaklings that are ready to be taken over. The Tea party is the only salvation. We must stop any increases in our debt & we won’t do it. Stick a fork in this nation.
I bet you a dollar he is getting Arab oil money now.
Thanks Tailgunner Joe.

Sounds like Jesse “Jackass” Jackson is running out of reasons to throw a temper tantrum on national television.
So ... the left encourage arabs to stand up and fight for rights but vilify conservatives for doing the same.
I don’t like this alternate universe we’ve entered into.
White guilt is out of fashion... And Arabs have money...
We are reaping what we have sowed as a nation, but we must not stop praying and doing what we can to fight the battle.
