[UPDATE2: John Ministries appears to still sell the sermon my audio clip, in the video, was derived from! The sermon is the 3rd in the triptych, sold as a DVD by JHM Ministries for $55 ]

I just noticed that Sam Stein, on the Huffington Post, has picked up on my latest John Hagee video, which showcases an extended excerpt from a John Hagee sermon, which I believe to be (judging from its themes) from the late 1990's. Themes from the sermon were plied into John Hagee books published in 2001,2003 and 2006. The Huff Post story is, in turn on Digg.

If you vote up Stein's Huffington Post story on Digg, you can help propell it towards the mainstream media by making it so big on the Internet it becomes unavoidable. AND, if you return to this post periodically through the afternoon, I will be putting up the story on other news ladders where you can also vote this up. And, you can vote up the video, itself, on Digg too!

OK, I've just posted my even more shocking (appalling ? Bizarre ? - choose your adjective) breaking story on John Hagee and Hagee's Church:

John Hagee's Church Sings For The Destruction of Israel

John McCain and John Hagee have co-endorsed each other (multiple times). McCain pursued Hagee's endorsement for over a year and showed up, at Hagee's July 2007 "Christians United For Israel" event, to give a speech. In early 2007, John Hagee and Jerry Falwell helped stage a fund raiser for Mccain. McCain has shared a stage with Hagee multiple times, endorsing Hagee simply by his presence but McCain has also praised (multiple times, on national television and at public events) Hagee and Hagee's leadership.

Two days ago I discovered that, according to John Hagee's own written words from Hagee's "Prophecy Study Bible", members of John Hagee's Christians United For Israel routinely sing, at every "Night To Honor Israel" event they hold, a joyful-sounding song which, in scriptural terms, refers to Israel's coming, expected  destruction. Building on my last discovery, of a John Hagee sermon in which Hagee claims God sent Hitler and the Nazis, to chase Europe's Jews towards Palestine, and that Jews have dead (or non-living, inert) souls  (see YouTube video towards the end of this post), this new finding helps solidify my case that Pastor John Hagee, who also has given a sermon espousing a crypto anti-Semitic conspiracy theory - of "international financial power brokers based in Europe", is an anti-Semite of the first magnitude. Daily Kos poster dogemperor has some informed commentary on what Hagee's showcasing of the 2nd Book of Joel, Chapter 2, verses 1-11 may signify in theological terms: "Joel's Army".

The mainstream media cannot keep the lid on Hagee forever. Your votes can help this break through the glass ceiling that divides the MSM and the Internet.  

In the sermon which is the subject of the video I made that's showcased now in Sam Stein's Huffington Post story, John Hagee states that Hitler was sent, by God, to chase the Jews of Europe towards Palestine. In essence, Hagee asserted that Hitler and the Holocaust were part of God's divine ethnic cleansing program against Jews.

Implicit in Hagee's message, logically, is the claim that, according to divine will, Jews can live nowhere else but in Israel/Palestine and should they be so bold as to live elsewhere God will send "hunters and fishers" to get them back to what, in Hagee's view, seems to be an ethnic bantustan and future killing field: Israel.

Here's Sam Stein's retelling of the essential elements of this story:

Going in and out of biblical verse, Hagee preached: "'And they the hunters should hunt them,' that will be the Jews. 'From every mountain and from every hill and from out of the holes of the rocks.' If that doesn't describe what Hitler did in the holocaust you can't see that."

He goes on: "Theodor Herzl is the father of Zionism. He was a Jew who at the turn of the 19th century said, this land is our land, God wants us to live there. So he went to the Jews of Europe and said 'I want you to come and join me in the land of Israel.' So few went that Herzl went into depression. Those who came founded Israel; those who did not went through the hell of the holocaust.

"Then god sent a hunter. A hunter is someone with a gun and he forces you. Hitler was a hunter. And the Bible says -- Jeremiah writing -- 'They shall hunt them from every mountain and from every hill and from the holes of the rocks,' meaning there's no place to hide. And that might be offensive to some people but don't let your heart be offended. I didn't write it, Jeremiah wrote it. It was the truth and it is the truth. How did it happen? Because God allowed it to happen. Why did it happen? Because God said my top priority for the Jewish people is to get them to come back to the land of Israel."

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
