Rupert Murdoch.

News Corporation Chairman Rupert Murdoch told a Jewish gathering Thursday that the freedoms enjoyed by many of the world’s citizens are dependent on the existence of the state of Israel. “You know as I do that as Israel goes, so goes […] our morality and our very existence as freedom loving citizens of the world” he said, addressing the founder of Christians United for Israel (CUFI), Pastor John Hagee, who was being honored at the event.

“This beleaguered nation and its people are beacons of hope and justice,” he said further, adding, “their enemies are our enemies, glorifiers of death, seeking to impose their bloody doctrine through violence.”

Murdoch, whose video remarks for the event hosted by Israeli poverty center Meir Panim, were pre-recorded, praised Hagee for his activism against anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism.

“You recognize it as the greatest ally of democracy, in a region beset with turmoil and radicalism,” Murdoch said.

    if this is an example to anything – GOD HELP US !!!

    This guy is a monster and should be stopped at all cost !

  • I find it revealing that a man like Rupert Murdoch who has excelled through his life though the most predatory business practices, lowest standards of journalism, utter contempt for law and ethics, and the promotion of immoral and violent behaviour, finds it necessary for the Zionist apartheid regime to survive so that his kind of ‘morality’ and his ‘freedom’ to do what he does can go on.

      Rebel of Oz can’t tell between the truth and the lies and got them upside down. It is Arab and Muslim regimes all over they exist that have apartheid against non-Muslims, gays and even against other Muslims, Sunnis in Shia countries and Shia in Muslim countries. yes, Rupert Murdoch is a successful businessman, a good reason to hate him for it. If we are talking about lies in the media, opinions like your could only be formed by reading lies in the British media, The Independent, The Guardian, who picture Arabs lynching Jews and claim that it is Jews attacking Arabs, who invent massacres that don’t exist so that the Rebel of Oz can claim that the “Zionist regime” is an apartheid regime. Luckily there are still some honest journalists, and they work with News Ltd.

      Get off this site, rebel, you vile savage loving troll. Wish you were in syria, a victim
      off the savages you adore.

      Couldn’t agree more!

      Funny enough, the respondents to your comment mention the Guardian “depicting Arabs…” while probably never heard of the book “Hack Attack” by Guardian reporter Nick Davies who uncovered the dirty and illegal smear tactics used by Murdoch’s News Corp and how they possibly colluded with UK politicians and police to hide their illegal behaviours.

      Also, the defensive-aggressive tone of those responses says a lot while you have not mentioned Arabs or Muslims anywhere they start attacking others. Reminds me a bit of the apartheid regime you mention that they’ve established in Palestine where they kill innocent children regularly and try to starve people to death. Hopefully these respondents are not Jewish as it would certainly confirm some assertions made in your comment!

  • I agree with the last Comment > Hagee should go to Rome & Stay There & take All Missionaries With YOU.

    It’s reassuring to know that men like Rupert Murdoch recognize the contributions to civilization that have been, and continue to be, made by Israel.

    Rev. Hagee is leading his group of followers as active supporters of the Israeli state. He, and they, don’t buy into the growing anti-Semitic trends developing in Europe and elsewhere.

    Muslim anti-Semitism only exceeds Muslim anti-Christianism because there are so many more Christians in position to push back!

    But seeing how the Christian world has turned a blind eye towards the Muslim attacks on Christians of the Middle East, doesn’t bode well for those Christians.

    Is the “progressive” political nature of Western Christianity so fearful of offending the Muslims that it will accept the murders, rapes and pillaging so quietly? If Western Christianity won’t stand up for its co-religionists in the ME then they aren’t likely to do so for Judaism. Rev. Hagee is one Christian Leader who is willing to call a spade a spade!

  • OPEN LETTER TO HAGEE:
    ISRAEL REJECTS JESUX
    JUDAISM REJECTS THE CONCEPT OF JESUX OTHER THEN DEAD
    YOUR THINKING THAT JEWS RETURN TO ISRAEL WILL BRING JEUSX IS OPPOSITE OF TORAH.
    ISRAEL DISSAPROVES YOUR MISSIONARY ACTIVITIES TO JEWS

    JEWS ONLY NEED AND WANT ‘ONE G-D OF ISRAELS SUPPORT.
    HAGEE GO TO ROME AND STAY THERE
    TAKE ALL MISSIOARIES WITH YOU

      I am a Jew and I find the above comment by “DACON9” repulsive and in extremely poor taste. In particular the gentleman’s spelling of Jesus is mean-spirited and reflects only his childish need to morph Jesus’ name into a kind of schoolyard taunt.

      I would wholeheartedly support blocking comments like that which take gratuitous swipes at the names of other people’s gods.
