Israel, End Times And The Likes Of John Hagee

  • #ThinkAboutIt End Timers Tony Perkins, Ken Blackwell and Jerry Boykin tour #Israel w/messianic prophet Joel Rosenberg

If you don’t think such an alliance won’t ultimately increase anti-Semitism, think again. There will be a price to pay for Jews willing to partner with this despicable group of Far RW Conservatives, a politically powerful group that discourages and damages peace efforts n the Middle East at every turn, all the while purporting to love ‘Zion.’
