Phat Robertson, for whom the term "Sour Grapes of Wrath" was invented after his embarrassing failed presidential bid, has transferred his hatred of African-Americans to Palestinians, whom he egregiously considers "the other dark meat".
Israeli Tourism Minister Benny Elon honored the conservative Christian author and commentator at a religious convention breakfast in Charlotte. The National Religious Broadcasters' convention is bringing 6,000 Christian media to the city through Wednesday.
Robertson praised Israel's survival in the face of what he called a "fanatical religion" of its Muslim neighbors. He said Palestinian President Yasser Arafat was raised to finish the work of Hitler.
The president of the Charlotte chapter of the Islamic Political Party of America criticizes both men for inciting "antagonism toward Islam ... and the plight of the Palestinian people."
