Why Pastor John Hagee MattersPosted by Eileen Hart on January 23, 2014
In March 2012, I took my daughter, Khloe, on her first trip to Eretz Yisrael. She was six years old. At the same time, 800 members of Christians United For Israel (CUFI) were there with Pastor John Hagee, Senior Pastor at Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas. We were both in Jerusalem at the same time. I thought that was rather exciting since I’m a conservative and many of my friends from Facebook and Twitter are members of CUFI. Pastor John Hagee and David Brog, Executive Director of CUFI, were on Glenn Beck’s show on The Blaze Network discussing a very disturbing trend among young Evangelicals that sent shockwaves through me.
Apparently, George Soros, has been investing millions of dollars into a program that takes these young Evangelical Christians to Israel in an attempt to brainwash them that Israel is the cause of all the problems in the Middle East. The typical cliches and accusations; apartheid, colonialist, imperialist, genocidal, IDF are Nazis, mass murders of Palestinians, Palestinian Holocaust is all being used I’m sure in an attempt to turn them into what J Street has done to many young Jewish Americans; make them violent anti Israel “peace” activists who become obsessed with the destruction of Israel. I ask all of you to pray for these young people that this doesn’t happen. Unfortunately, many of my fellow Jews who are young have gone to the dark side. I remain optimistic they will come back to reality.
Pastor John Hagee is not only one of the strongest supporters of Israel, he speaks the truth that the Palestinians are a made up people by other Arab nations. Let me go further and include they are also made up by the liberal media (aka Brian Williams) and the always hideous United Nations. Israel and America is beyond lucky to have a mensch like John Hagee. He stands up for Israel and the Jewish people ALL THE TIME. I ask myself on a daily basis. Where are my people? Why aren’t Rabbis and other prominent Jews like Sheldon Adelson standing up to our accusers? Unfortunately, these days in the Jewish world no one speaks up for Israel. Why? Because 78% of Jews vote Democrat and support a two state solution. Many fellow liberal Jews even go so far as to suggest Israel should sit at the table and negotiate peace with HAMAS. Many left wing Jews view Israel as the occupier, oppressor and aggressor.
Israel is not an apartheid state. The wall that Roger Waters and Elvis Costello whine about saves Jewish lives. Behind that wall are terrorists in waiting. Palestinian mothers who shove their young children into the arms of Hamas to carry out terrorist attacks against Israel. Below is the segment of John Hagee and David Brog’s appearance on Glenn Beck.
