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.
Miles apart, and still on the same page. Hmmm. Even scarier is the thought of a home grown terrorist in the company of Mr. G.D. America.
