“Christian Zionist” Political ‘Summit’ Draws 5000 Also Protestors

Ben Norton, Mondoweiss, July 31,  observed:  “Throughout that night in July 2014—while I was bombarded with doomsday fearmongering about the supposedly imminent destruction of Israel by “the Islamic Republic of Iran,” juxtaposed against joyous, earsplitting music, “That night, sitting in an enormous hall, surrounded by thousands of bloodthirsty CUFI supporters, I couldn’t help but think of what Jesus himself would have said, if he had seen all these Christians rejoicing in violence, reveling in death.”
(This editor notes that We Hold These Truths held the first protest of this event in July, 2007.  (see photo report comparing WHTT.org 2007 vigil to the 2015 protest here.) (TEC)
