On radio this morning, Pastor John Hagee, founder and national chairman of Christians United for Israel, joined Glenn to discuss the growing trend of evangelical Christians lending their support to Palestine and the theory behind his new book Four Blood Moons, in which he argues the scientific and Biblical reasons Christians should support Israel.
“John Hagee is a friend of mine, a fellow Texan, one of the bravest guys that I know. He's been standing up and saying the things no matterwhat anybody says about him. He'll continue to say the things that he believes and feels compelled to say,” Glenn said. “Now, I had John on a couple of nights ago because he started CUFI, Christians United for Israel. And he is bringing to our attention a new George Soros plan banded by the Open Society Institute to go into our evangelical churches and convince the youth that Israel is the problem in the Middle East. It is highly coordinated and, well, evil.”
Pastor Hagee explained the efforts have been going on for a couple of years now, and it is an attempt to convince the 18 to 24-year-old members of the evangelical churches that Palestinians are suffering at the hands of Israelis.
“When we were in Israel for Restoring Courage, we had the George Soros money out in force, and they organized a rally against us… They had also intimidated the orchestra and the choir and told them, ‘If you perform with Glenn Beck, you will never work in Israel again,’” Glenn explained. “And what George Soros has done is funded all of these trips for evangelical leaders, youth evangelical leaders, and taste-makers. He is sending them over there.”
CUFI is working to counteract the Soros money by organizing their own trips for young evangelicals that will offer them a different insight into the history of Israel and Palestine. Glenn urged the audience to consider supporting CUFI and its mission.
“I would like to suggest is that you would go to CUFI.org and donate some money to be able to send people over. You can send a busload over for I think $150,000 and give them the experience that George Soros is giving except on the other side. If we lose the youth on this one, we lose period. We cannot allow it to happen again… It is the only hope left in America for the preservation of the ideas, and ideals, and the feelings that we have on Israel. They're the only ones making any impact. Please stand with them. CUFI.org and if you can make a donation, please do.”
Glenn then asked Pastor Hagee to explain the significance of the Four Blood Moons.
“I think in April, right, the first one? And this has only happened a few times in history according to NASA,” Glenn said. “And when they do, it's always a major event. And you say this is really significant. The next 18 months really, really significant to the world.”
“The four blood moons have only appeared three times in more than 500 years,” Pastor Hagee added. “A blood moon is when the sun, the earth, and the moon get into a direct alignment. And the earth is in the center, and the sun shines through the earth's atmosphere, and the moon on the other side turns into a reddish glow.”
Pastor Hagee went on to explain the significance of the Four Blood Moons and the dates on which they are set to occur:
