Left-wing activist tweets: ‘Jesus was Palestinian’. Netanyahu’s son calls her “stupid”

Palestinian American left-wing activist Linda Sarsour created a storm of controversy when she posted on Twitter last weekend that “Jesus was Palestinian.”
“Jesus was Palestinian of Nazareth and is described in the Quran as being brown copper skinned with wooly hair,” the anti-Israel political activist wrote.
The Twitter post evoked a flurry of responses many of them noting that Jesus was actually Jewish and was born in the region known as Judea.
As the Jerusalem Post noted, “The latest attempt to push the ‘Jesus was Palestinian’ claim is not as innocent as it appears. It is a negation of Jewish history and a modern-day attempt at replacement theology: to replace historical Jewish connections to the land 2,000 years ago, recreating an imagined history of Palestinians in place of Jews.”
Yair Netanyahu, the son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and a student of both the bible and history, chimed in.
“Are you that stupid? On the cross above Jesus’ head was the sign “INRI”- “Iesvs Nazarenvs Rex Ivdaeorvm”, which means in Latin—Jesus of Nazareth king of the Jews! The Bible say that Jesus was born and raised in Judea!”
