• “HAGEECON” 2013: Bevy of Christian & Jewish Zionists want more war with Islam in Mideast
By Michael Collins
.WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Barack Obama came under heavy fire when more than 4,000 people showed up in Washington on July 22-24 to proclaim the support of American Christians for Israel and to lobby Congress on its behalf.
Along with a host of American politicians — mostly Republicans — known for their fealty to Israel, the assembled masses gathered at the Washington Convention Center under the auspices of Texas evangelist John Hagee’s Christians United for Israel (CUFI), which claims to have 1 million members.
While the corpulent Hagee surrounds himself with a contingent of Israeli bodyguards, CUFI’s operations are directed by an American Jew, David Brog, who is a cousin of former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak.
New York-based Jewish newspaper Forward reported enthusiastically about the conference, noting that “Christian evangelical supporters of Israel sent a strong message of opposition to President Obama on Iran and the renewal of Mideast peace talks.”
However, what did take place during this gathering reflects a bizarre and inflammatory worldview on the part of the participants.
Rabbi Aryeh Sheinberg’s invocation slammed Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry — who is of Jewish extraction on his father’s side and whose brother is a practicing Jew, having abandoned the Catholic faith in which he was raised — saying their proposals for a Middle East settlement would reinstate what some Israelis call “the Auschwitz borders” — that is, Israel’s borders before it expanded into Arab lands after the 1967 war.
TV personality Glenn Beck, a Mormon, gave the keynote address, trashing Obama. He concluded: “Our government is on the wrong side, and we are entering terrible, terrible days if we don’t wake up and turn around.”
Beck delighted his audience by explaining the real reason America’s founding fathers staged the revolution against Britain was so conservative Christians could ultimately help usher Israel into being in 1948.
Giving a tangled description of symbolism on the one-dollar Federal Reserve note — which is otherwise the subject of well-founded debate — Beck said this was proof of his thesis.
Beck failed to mention that American Jewish millionaires bribed several Latin American delegates to the UN, whose votes were critical to UN recognition of Israel, not to mention that supporters of Israel have now cheerfully bragged that a special blackmail-and-coercion intelligence operation was utilized to further influence other delegates.
Beck displayed, of all things, a napkin he claimed was on a table next to Hitler when the German leader survived an assassination attempt on July 20, 1944. He also brandished a whip he alleged had been used in the Auschwitz camp in Poland to punish Jewish prisoners during World War II.
And, just for the record, Beck declared how evil Islam happens to be — a favorite mantra often heard today, a major tool in the effort by Israel and its supporters to engage America in war against the Muslim world.
Unfortunately, a lot of patriots who should know better are echoing this same kind of rhetoric, promoting the poison of the Israeli propagandists.
An array of politicians, mostly conservative Republicans, who showed up to declare their alliance with Israel included:
• Newly elected Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a 2016 presidential aspirant whose wife is a banker with Goldman Sachs, the powerful international Jewish investment house;
• House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) — an Orthodox Jew much of whose campaign money comes from Wall Street and gambling and liquor interests; and
• Retiring Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) who once famously said, “I am a Christian, but I consider my heritage Jewish, because it is the foundation, the roots of my faith as a Christian.”
Another stalwart voice for Israel, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) — who never went to war but who is always an advocate of U.S. military ventures on behalf of Israel — pranced and minced to the podium and told the cheering audience he plans to introduce a resolution in Congress authorizing the use of force — American blood and treasure — against Iran.
Using reasoning reeking of the provocative logic utilized in rabbinical reasoning and commemorated in the Jewish holy works known as the Talmud, Graham explained: “My goal is to avoid war, and the best way to avoid war is to let the Iranians know they’re going to face one and lose.”
The only thing Graham and his GOP colleagues didn’t say—at least publicly—was “Onward, Christian Soldiers,” although that certainly is their philosophy.
Hagee himself said he wants the United States to “turn the Israeli Defense Forces loose and have a total victory in the Middle East for peace that will last.” In other words: all-out war against the Arab and Muslim nations — financed, of course, by American taxpayers and underscored by the implicit promise American soldiers will come to Israel’s support as necessary.
And making it all too clear Israel really isn’t so poised for peace with the Palestinian Christians and Muslims as many Americans are led by the media to believe, Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Ron Prossor, said any talk of a so-called two-state solution is actually a “euphemism for the destruction of the state of Israel.”
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was on hand to warn, or so he said, that Iran doesn’t just plan to destroy Israel. Iran has missiles intended to hit the U.S. and “that could happen very soon.”
As a humorous but not-so-subtle reminder that the power of Jewish media, money and mischief is a force in America today, Malcolm Hoenlein, executive vice president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, told the crowd: “The Jewish lobby is a myth. It’s our job to make it a legend!”
Finally, he warned anybody who dared stand up to Israel and its supposedly mythical lobby: “Don’t bet against the Jews.”
