I wrote a post about Islamic terrorism yesterday, so I might as well follow with one about Christian terrorism. Max Blumenthal has made a brilliant video about the organisation called Christians United for Israel. I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. With friends like these, who needs enemies?
Here are some choice quotes from the video:
Woman: Are you Jewish?
Woman: So do you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ?
Max: No, I’m Jewish.
Max: Are you looking forward to Armageddon?
Man: Yes, I definitely am.
Pastor John Haggee: “…therefore it is time for American to embrace the words of Senator Joseph Lieberman and consider a military pre-emptive strike against Iran to prevent a nuclear holocaust in Israel”.
Lieberman: “Haggee is a man of God”.
It might be tempting to dismiss all this as the fantasies of a deluded minority. But Senator Joe Lieberman is right at the centre of it all. Only reason, science, rationality, and logic will thwart these people. Or not. Probably not. Damn.
I know! Let’s try ridicule and satire instead!
