“Captain America” star Chris Evans went to battle on Twitter last week against former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, who accused the actor of supporting “Zionist wars.”

The Twitter feud began on Wednesday when Evans, who is not Jewish, criticized the white supremacist for supporting the appointment of Republican former senator Jeff Sessions as US Attorney General. Duke lauded Sessions as someone suited for “the project of taking America back,” to which Evans replied, “If David Duke….DAVID!…DUKE!… thinks you’re right, then you are unequivocally wrong. The confirmation of @jeffsessions is beyond words.”

Duke fired back, calling Evans a “typical dumb actor” and adding, “If everything I say is wrong, then when I say I oppose these Zionists wars, you must be for them, Captain America!?”

Evans took another stab at Duke on Thursday, tweeting a link to choice quotes — including one that refers to Jews as “a blight” — along with the message, “Well if these nuggets of bigotry are some of your OTHER thoughts, then I stand by my original tweet.” The actor ended by saying, “We can’t let hatred be the loudest voice.”

Duke finally tweeted, “Captain America inspires the ‘Theoretical Marxist’ in all of us.”

    Global hatred for Israel is archaic and its no surprise to true Bible believers for its already been prophesied in the pages of the Holy Bible. To speak up against it is to stand for what we believe but it must be done in a Bible sanctioned way that is acceptable in the sight of everyone. The intention is to correct as the Bible says that love is corrective. People have the freedom to their expressions but at the same time they need to understand that whether they believe it or not there is a God who will bring to judgment what we say and do. What we need to do is to pray for people like Chris Evans and others like him, to see the light but then again, God already knows who will be for or against Him according to His Word.
    To that end, we are not perturbed by what the mainstream world says as God’s Plan will prevail no matter what if you believe or not, that is our prerogative the standard has been set and we have been warned. The choice is simply ours to believe or not.
