Bigger Than AIPAC

NEW YORK – Televangelist John Hagee told Jewish community leaders over the weekend that the 40 million evangelical Christians in the United States support Israel and that he plans to utilize this power to help Israel by launching a Christian pro-Israel lobby.
The lobby, called Christians United for Israel, is slated to launch in July, during a Washington conference in which hundreds of American evangelicals are slated to participate, Hagee said at a meeting of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, which represents 52 national Jewish groups. He also discussed the lobby with Israel’s consul general in New York, Aryeh Mekel.
Hagee said his group would be a Christian – and more powerful – version of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a large pro-Israel lobby, and would target senators and congressmen on Capitol Hill. A quarter of congressmen are evangelicals, and many American legislators represent regions that include a large evangelical population, he said.

I can’t wait until, say, 2040, when the Foreign Appropriations Bill includes the Amendment to Facilitate the Battle of Christ and Antichrist and the Conversion of the Jews.
Full story.

  1. Who do they think they’re kidding?!?! Nobody is more powerful than AIPAC, except maybe the Jews that run Hollywood and the Media.
    There was an excellent reference to Jews and evangelicals on the Sopranos tonight. Hesh’s wife says the evangelicals are great friends to Israel and Hesh replies, real slow and ominous-like, “Yeah, just wait…” and the scene fades out. BRILLIANT!
    Of all the Jews who run Hollywood and the Media, I think I love the Jews who run HBO the best.

  2. Yeah, but he still thinks that we’re all going to hell. And I don’t believe that a quarter of congress persons are evangelicals. They distort the figures like that when talking about the founding fathers as well.
