A friend this week alerted me to “TruNews,” a media outfit run by Rick Wiles. I had never heard of him, or “TruNews,” so I watched his take on the recently concluded “Christ at the Checkpoint” conference.
I have been critical of Charismatic leader Dr. Michael Brown for accepting a speaking slot at the odious “Christ at the Checkpoint” gathering in Beit Jala, outside Bethlehem. As has been said many times, CATC is a leftwing, anti-Semitic hate-fest.
Whenever we discuss the Palestinians, and the peace process, or anything else related to Israel’s security and sovereignty, we must remember that the Arabs will never stop agitating and inciting to violence, in order to—in their minds—begin the “liberation of Palestine.”
