Hagee v. Yoffie

Hagee in Zion.jpgIn Israel today, Pastor John Hagee responded to Rabbi Eric Yoffie’s critique, accusing the head of Reform Judaism of a “troubling lack of respect of the truth.” Hagee denied being anti-Catholic and insisted he could back a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict (if Israel wants it). He had just returned from a Solidarity rally leading 1,000 Christians through the streets of Jerusalem shouting Hosannah! OK, that’s not what they were shouting. Anyway, in a Q and A he defined Christian Zionism as ” the belief that every Jewish person has the right of return to Israel and the right to live in peace and security within recognized borders.”
