Ted Cruz (Texas) for promoting an endorsement from evangelical Christian Pastor Mike Bickle, who has said that God sent Hitler to punish Jews for not accepting Jesus.

“It is profoundly troubling that Sen. Ted Cruz proudly trumpeted the endorsement of such a controversial figure who holds such offensive views,” said a statement by the National Jewish Democratic Council (NJDC).

Bickle said in 2004, “These 20 million—less than 20 million Jews worldwide, there’s about 5 million in Israel, about another 15 million worldwide, a little bit less than that—those 15 million, God is going to bring them all back. Two-thirds will die in the rage of Satan and in the judgments of God and one-third, every one of the one-third, will be in the land before it’s over and they’ll be worshippers of Jesus…The Lord says, ‘I’m going to give all 20 million of them the chance. To respond to the fisherman. And I give them grace. And I give them grace…if they don’t respond to grace, I’m going to raise up the hunters…And the most famous hunter in recent history is a man named Adolf Hitler.’”

Cruz adviser Nick Muzin said in a statement the Cruz campaign “welcomes support from faith leaders across the country. Mike Bickle is one of the hundreds who have endorsed us. My understanding is that he was paraphrasing the words of the prophets Jeremiah and Zechariah. I know that he has made support for Israel and the Jewish people a central part of his mission.”

“No one has a better record than Senator Cruz when it comes to standing with Israel, fighting against radical Islamic terror, and combating global anti-Semitism. We are proud of the support we are building in both communities and see them as complementary, and part of our larger goal of restoring Judeo-Christian leadership values to America and the world,” Muzin said, Jewish Insider reported.

The NJDC responded that Cruz must “clarify if he stands with Pastor Mike Bickle and his belief that God sent Hitler to hunt Jews for not accepting Jesus as the messiah.”

    God did not send Hitler to hunt the Jews, Just as God has not approved of the present leadership of the U.N. setting the stage for hunting Jews, God does not approve of the anti-Semitism emanating from the White House. The protection of Israel is in the bone marrow and genetic composition of a Judeo-Christian. Israel’s function is to gather the remaining flock for the establishment of Gods kingdom on earth. This they will do during the tribulation. They brought in the gentiles by establishing the blood line that eventually enabled God to cut a wild branch into the olive tree. That would be me and most of the rest of the earth. Thank You, Israel. Now you are being hunted for your participation in that event and the plans for your demise are now in full swing to prevent you from completing your divine mission. Again I will warn you that in the eyes of your foes the eradication of Israel is not optional it is mandatory. Unfortunately Islam has joined itself at the neck with those forces that oppose The God of Abraham, therefore, their very existence depends on the complete destruction of Israel and the killing of all the Jews. That is why Jews are being hunted and will continue to be hunted until their is some form of and end game. That endgame is called the tribulation, of which we are now actively engaged in, and the apocalypse as described in Daniel and Revelation. Its stated very clearly in scripture that God is going to crush those involved in the demonic plot to destroy Israel and that those who reject the persecution of Israel and offer Israel a helping hand will be blessed. I think Putin has that one figured out, he is not stupid, as the President of the U.S. is, the U.N., and most of Europe. In Gods eyes it is hammer time and those who oppose his kingdom will very shortly be dispensed with. You know, plagues, pestilence, disease, volcanoes, asteroids, earthquakes,etc.., etc.., adinfinitum…you know all those warnings which are dismissed by the secular humanists, and those of Islamic persuasion. Well welcome to the real world of God. He gave Ishmael all the oil an all the wealth it could desire and how did they pay God back…by attempting to eradicate his bloodline…blood is now going to run in the streets and the majority of it will not be Israel’s.

    Not just Democrats, ALL JEWS, condemn Ted Cruz’s alliance with this despicable man Bickle and Ted Nuggent.

    There is little difference between Obama’s alliance with Rev Wright and other racists, and Ted Cruz’s alliance with the same racist scum.

    TED CRUZ: You cannot say you stand with Israel and align yourself with a Hitler supporter. You lost this Jewish vote — and if any Jew votes for you, they are insane. We made a mistake with Obama, but not going to repeat it with you!!!

      I have called the News Media to report the relationship between Cruz, Bickle and Glenn Beck. Know one will write an Editorial on Cruz, Bickle, Beck embracing their hate of Jews! I tried so many Avenues.So many Jewish people have NO IDEA about their Relationship. I ask myself, “WHY” WHERE ARE Jewish Organizations?? Why do they always or most of the time keep their heads in the sand? Many of us are trying to get the word out and we CAN”T????? Same with Obama and Rev. Wright. Where are the P.C. Police?? Never around when it comes to Anti-Semitism!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • HALF-BREED

        Everything you said is correct. You sound as frustrated, and angry, as I am. So far as I can tell, the Jewish organizations are supporting the Palestinians. Yes, Political Correctness applies to everyone but the Jews.

  • sifter

    Yes, Cruz should clarify…….right after Obama explains why Sat in racist Rev Wrights church for 20 years, spewing poisonous anti Jewish diatribes.
