Our Hagee Problem Has Yet To Be Addressed

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2008

John Hagee, Evangelical charismatic and self-proclaimed philosemite, believes the Jews brought all the centuries of persecution, culminating in the Holocaust, on themselves. This may have been enough to cause John McCain to distance himself from Hagee as a political move, and yet as long as he "stands for Israel," Hagee is welcomed by Jewish organizations around the country. In addition to, and perhaps even prior to, "standing for Israel," there is also, or ought to be, something called self-respect.
