Last year, at Texas megachurch Pastor John Hagee's July 16-18 2007 "Christians United For Israel" conference in Washington D.C., US Senator Joseph Lieberman made a warmly received appearance and delivered a speech likening Pastor Hagee, Christians United For Israel's founder, to Moses. "He is an Ish Elochim," said the Senator, "A man of God." Lieberman went on, "and, like Moses, he is the leader of a mighty multitude." But in March 2003, on three consecutive Sundays at his San Antonio-based Cornerstone Church, Pastor John Hagee gave a series of three sermons heavily loaded with anti-Jewish memes, stereotypes, slurs and conspiracy theories, one of which was almost identical to what was perhaps Adolf Hitler's favorite conspiracy theory, which alleged that an international Jewish banking cabal, led by the The Jewish Rothschild banking family, controls the fates of entire nation, even the progression of world events and history, through the manipulation of global money markets.Wow, just wow. And why doesn't the main stream media cover any of this? And what's with Joe Lieberman ignoring Hagee's antisemitic remarks? Well, I say if it walks like a Nazi and quacks like a Nazi, then it must be a Nazi and a Nazi enabler.
John Hagee has also, to wide public notice, declared that God sent Hitler, to chase Europe's Jew towards Palestine with Nazi persecution and with the Holocaust. Hagee, additionally has stated that Jews are not "spiritually alive."Check out the first two videos, just frightening. How the hell can his group, Christians United For Israel, get any Jewish support at all? Check out the multitude of links at the end of the article. There were too many articles for me to have time to read them all.
Here are the two videos:
Absolutely fucking scary.
It looks like the Jewish community is starting to get wind of exactly how bad Hagee's antisemitism is.
Will Lieberman and Pipes continue backing Hagee regardless of what other anti-Jewish commentaries might be discovered? Will CUFI continue to escalate its push for the Bush Administration to deal militarily with Iran? These questions might be answered when CUFI members flock to Washington next month.The folks over at JStreet are asking Joe Lieberman not to go to the CUFI convention on July 22nd. Perhaps the word is getting out, or perhaps not.
Stay tuned folks, same Bat channel, same Bat time.
