We look at US presidential candidates in this podcast. Rick Perry, governor of Texas, is called a Likudnik by the Israeli newspaper, Haaretz. Find out what this means. Former 2008 presidential candidate, Chuck Baldwin, an evangelical pastor says that there are many "Cheerleaders for War" in the ranks of evangelicals from the top down. Find out how these evangelicals give Christianity a bad rap.
We pay tribute to the opposition in Israel who stand up to the insane policies of the Israeli government that are centered around their unwillingness to resolve the conflict with the Palestinians. The Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, has some strong words about the suicidal policies of the Israeli government. We focus on 6 stories, editorials and opinions from Haaretz. Of course, the United States suffers from a similar type of insanity... its serial wars syndrome.
One of the largest groups who support wars in the Middle East to protect Israel are "Angry" Evangelicals sometimes known as Christian Zionists. WHTT Director, Thom Compton explains what "Angry" Evangelicalism is and how to combat it.
