John Hagee Warmonger for Christ

Defending Israel to the 'End Times'

by Bill Berkowitz at Media Transparency

Christian Zionists organize to stymie any Israeli/Palestinian peace agreement that would divide Jerusalem while Netanyahu waits for Olmert's government to collapse
These are busy days for Christian Zionists. While President Bush recently returned from his trip to the Middle East "optimistic" that a peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians could be reached by the end of the year, Pastor John Hagee's Christian United for Israel (CUFI) is setting forth plans to put the kibosh -- if not on the entire peace process -- on any agreement that would sanction the division of Jerusalem. And Dr. Mike Evans has launched a "Save Jerusalem Campaign” while Joel C. Rosenberg's Joshua Fund is planning a major celebration in Jerusalem in honor of Israel's 60th anniversary.

I know I have posted about Hagee many times, but the reality that someone this irrational as has such influence and political power, not just in the USA but in a place as volatile as Israel is beyond any of the "near future" he envisions. The "Biblical Prophecy" he preaches is just a rehashing of John Nelson Darby's crackpot Dispensationalism Theology that was dreamed up in the 1820's. It is one thing to anticipate the world's end it is another to make millions trying to produce it.
