Do Angry Evangelicals and Christian Zionists constitute a new Christian cult? Charles E. Carlson makes some startling conclusions from the last We Hold These Truths' Project Strait Gate vigil held in front of a John Hagee, Night to Honor Israel fund raising event in Colorado for CUFI (Christians United For Israel). Hagee is a self-proclaimed Christian Zionist and supporter of any war to protect Israel, including starting a new one against Iran. Also, we talk about Rev. Alex Awad, a Palestinian Christian pastor along with his fellow Christians in the West Bank of Palestine, who suffer because of the aberrant behavior of Christian Zionists, primarily in the United States.

Charles E. Carlson of We Hold These Truths has dared to go where no others have...connecting a U.S. State Department cable from March, 2009 released by Wikileaks to the U.S. efforts to start a war with Iran based on a suspicious plot by people, supposedly under the control of Iran, to kill a Saudi Arabian envoy in the U.S. This needs to be heard far and wide so we aren't tricked into another war like we were in Iraq with bogus reports of Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. Chuck's written report can be found at: http://whtt.org/newwhtt/main.php?nid=10061&ncateid=1
Also, we have a report by Professor Rob Prince of the Front Range Jewish Voice For Peace about his experience at a recent Project Strait Gate vigil to protest the appearance of John Hagee of Christians United for Israel at a local Denver, CO church.
We Hold These Truths has released our first documentary on Christian Zionism for free viewing on the internet. This is a must see to understand the nature of a branch of Christianity that puts Israel ahead of Jesus. Ever wonder why so many Christians support America’s many wars, especially in the Middle East? A new Christianity has emerged from the Twentieth Century called Christian Zionism or what could be called, "Angry Evangelicalism," or "Dispensationalism on Steroids." What motivates a nationally known, evangelical preacher like John Hagee to call for a preemptive strike against Iran when it is contrary to what Jesus taught and commanded his followers to do? This “Roots of Zionism” presentation may be the first of its kind with a factual explanation of how Christianity’s latest apostate epidemic was launched with the publishing of C. I. Scofield's reference Bible in 1909, and the influence of the notes in it. The video can be watched in full screen mode at: http://vimeo.com/29901084
Charles E Carlson of We Hold These Truths thinks a movement similar to Occupy Wall Street is needed in front of evangelical churches all across the US that support wars in the Middle East to protect Israel.
The average American's earning power is being eroded by government induced inflationary policies. And, a falling job market and a rise in the number of Americans living under the poverty level is generating discontent around the United States. Add to that the bailout of the banksters by the US government... no wonder movements like Occupy Wall Street are spreading across the country. We also talk about the withholding of American aid to Palestine because of the UN bid for statehood. This aid is less than one sixth the level given to Israel
