These Black Pastors Just Called Out Obama For Hurting Our Relationship With Israel
The left-wing media only permits “approved” African American pastors, such as Jesse Jackson and of course Al Sharpton, access to their national audiences. A less racist press corps would be reporting on the rising generation of black pastors, among them Reverend Dexter Sanders of the Rock Center for Transformation in Orlando Florida.
After the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) announced that it would boycott Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s address to the U.S. Congress, Reverend Sanders said this:
“The thing to me that makes no sense is why the Congressional Black Caucus has teamed up with this current administration against Israel. And yes, black caucus, I’m saying you have gone against Israel when you decide to protest the prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, from coming and speaking on the behalf of the nation of Israel.”
Reverend Sanders did not hold back in his characterization of the CBC’s boycott decision:
“That is a slap in the face to the people of Israel, and not only that, it’s a slap in the face to God. And not only that, it’s also a slap in the face of all Bible-believing African-American people in this country.”
In response to the CBC’s claim that its boycott was based on a perceived breach of protocol by Netanyahu, another rising young African American pastor, Reverend Cecil Blye, said this:
“Charges from some members of the United States Congress about the breaking of protocol are no more than a very red herring. The American people need to hear Israel’s voice on this urgent matter now. If one side of the aisle can facilitate this, so be it.”
This is the kind of leadership that America’s black community has long needed. It is being now being provided by a new generation of black pastors that the major media will, sadly, never let the broader American public see.
