Man of God?
Much has been made of Michael Chertoff's "gut feeling" that alqeada will attack sometime this summer. One may think these attacks are unprovoked, but in reality they are in direct correlation to US foreign policy, especially as it pertains to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Such policy is being driven by the Christian right, which supports Israel even as it violates international law and seizes more land from the Palestinians. Israel expansionist policies are being funded in part by John Hagee, who has given $8.5 million to Israel expasionist policie, as well as using political pressure on Congress to keep funding policy, even as it violates international law.
Hagee is also pushing for war with Iran, which is necessary in "order for most of today’s Christians to escape physical death, two-thirds of the Jews in Israel must perish, soon", which is most certain to happen when Israel strikes Iran's nuclear facilities, which, unlike Israel's nuclear site at Dimona, is open to inspections by the IAEA, a move hailed by the UN. Hagee seems to revel in the fact that the "end times" of his religious beliefs are upon us, but it seems more as if he's trying to incite the apocalypse himself.
Hagee fancies himself a Christian, however, he seems more in step with the "Islamofascists" who want to take over the world and force Sharia law on us all. Perhaps we'd all be better off if we gave them their own planet to fight each other over whose God has the biggest dick, and leave the rest of us in peace on Earth.
