The Algemeiner – A leading Jewish group blasted anti-Israel activist Linda Sarsour on Sunday after she falsely claimed that Jesus was a Palestinian.
Responding to a post about whether Jesus and Moses were “Middle Eastern,” Sarsour tweeted, “Jesus was Palestinian of Nazareth and is described in the Quran as being brown copper skinned with woolly hair” . . .
In response to Sarsour’s claim, the official Twitter account of the American Jewish Committee tweeted, “Mentions of Judea in the New Testament: 48. Mentions of Palestine in the New Testament: 0. Which makes sense,” said the group, “because the name Palestine was only applied to the region by the Romans in 135 CE.”
