Obama's Terrorist Pal Bill Ayers Leads Chicago Peace Rally
Accused cop killer and unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers and Rev. Jeremiah “G-D AmeriKKKa” Wright led a peace walk in Chicago this weekend.

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.
“We can’t be squelching viewpoints because they are unpopular or because someone has a reputation through Fox News,” said Caren Levy Van Slyke, a spokeswoman with the group.
