Christian Zionists Converge on Washington to Lobby For Israel



Here's another little item the dinosaur media would rather you didn't know about.

Thousands of Christian Zionists flooded Capitol Hill today to lobby for Israel, led by the founder and head of Christians United for Israel, the Reverend John Hagee.

And, the day after President Bush's little homily on the Middle East, let's just say he wasn't exactly in a turn-the-other-cheek mood....

"We support Israel because we are Bible-believing Christians. The world needs to see that the sleeping giant of Christian Zionism has awakened."

Hagee said that the entire Christian world kept quiet during World War II and allowed the genocide of the Jewish people. "This time we will not be silent," Hagee said.

At "A Night to Honor Israel" banquet, Hagee called on President Bush to move the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and for the US to divest from Iran, which he compared to Nazi Germany as a threat to the Jewish people.

Hagee said Mideast tensions shouldn't be blamed on Israel, but on Islamic radicals and moderate Muslims who won't condemn them. ( Whoah!!) Hagee also referred to Iranian President Ahmadinejad as a new Hitler, saying the Iranian president will use a nuclear bomb to destroy Israel `the first chance he gets'.

Among a score of well known politicians who addressed the gathering were John McCain and Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich said that if US President George W. Bush really wanted to get a message across to Hamas, he should move the US Embassy to Jerusalem "tomorrow morning".

Gee, just like Congress has mandated for years now...

Gingrich had some choice words for President Bush, saying that instead of fighting to win, he's now pursuing appeasement.

Gingrich said, "We don't have a peace process. We have a surrender process."

Gingrich said the United States and Western civilization are in a global conflict with radical Islam, and must choose between victory and surrender.

My old pal Gary Bauer, my personal choice for President in 2000 was there as well, saying, "You are Ahmadinejad, Hamas, and Hezbollah's worst nightmare, because you support Israel. They are telling you to give back land. We are telling you, don't give back one inch." (high five and blessings,bro!)

Israeli Ambassador to the US Salai Meridor, told the protesters, "We must end this nightmare. We must end the madness. We must make it clear to the Iranians that all options are on the table and that there is no way they will be allowed to hold nuclear weapons."

Christian Zionists are among the most ethical people on the planet. This was the main reason I became one!! After I became one, I learned that the Scriptures promise to bless anyone who blesses Israel and to curse anyone who curses Israel.

Also, we support Israel because it is the right thing to do!! By any standard their cause is just. I would support Israel even if it meant opposing my own country.

I'm finding it increasingly difficult to cut through the anti-Israel propaganda that dominates the news media. Many thanks to Freedom Fighter for the great work in cutting through the anti-Israel propaganda.

At least the detainees at Gitmo are getting first rate defense attorneys and they are lauded over as heroes by the main stream media. In general to support Al Qaeda, Iran, or Russia against American interests will cost an American citizen nothing. In fact, they may even be able to get a book deal to write about how much America hurt them.

To support Israel may be a different story. Most of the main stream media despises Israel. The only reason we don't have a media that is as virulently anti-Israel as they do in Western Europe and elsewhere is becuase the US has a much freer press and it is much easier to expose the fraud of Israel bashing.
