WHO INSTIGATED ANTI-ISRAEL DEMONSTRATION INSIDE TEXAS CHURCH?
The Blaze May 19, 2011
That‘s the best way to describe the image Pastor John Hagee’s deputy director of security, Chris Flores, painted for me as he retold what happened
at Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, TX on Sunday. He confirmed what Hagee says in an open letter
from earlier today: 11 protesters were escorted out of the sanctuary as one after another popped up to utter anti-Israel slogans during the 11 am service.
“They should be thanking us”
“We handcuffed them until we ran out of handcuffs,” Flores said as he detailed how he and others on his team reacted to the situation. According to him, they followed the church’s normal procedure for such disruptions: they escorted the instigators out of the sanctuary, secured them in a separate area, took their pictures and identification, called the local San Antonio police, and then had the police issue criminal trespass warnings, meaning that if the protesters ever come back they will be arrested.
"The backbone of Israel’s apartheid is formed by a set of discriminatory laws, including the 1950 Law of Return (1950), Absentee Property Law (1950), Citizenship Law (1952), World Zionist Organization-Jewish Agency “Status” Law (1952), the Jewish National Fund Law (1953), and Basic Law: Israel Lands (1960), which reserve the full rights of “nationals” in Israel to the state’s Jewish citizens and confers public status on Zionist “national” institutions which work for the exclusive Jewish benefit. The same laws exclude the 1948 Palestinian refugees from citizenship, confer second-class citizenship on Palestinians who have remained in Israel, facilitate confiscation of Palestinian land and its transfer to Jewish ownership, and bar Palestinian restitution claims."
