America's entanglement with Israel

Ted Cruz’s bible-thumping, carpet bombing Israel-centric foreign policy

Philip Giraldi, former CIA counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer currently executive director of the Council for the National Interest, links to my article on the “In Defense of Christians” D.C. Summit in his latest UNZ Review column:

The disturbing thing about Cruz is that his foreign policy statements are awash in what must be a willful disregard of reality, but, as with the threatened government shutdown, he apparently knows what will sell with the Bible thumping America first crowd that he is primarily targeting. His latest leitmotif which he has been hammering relentlessly is the worldwide persecution of Christians, with the clear implication that it is uniquely a Muslim problem. It is also a line that is being pursued by the Israeli government and American Jewish groups, that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is somehow a protector of Christianity.

  1. They’re certainly hammering that lie. Sadly, it works. Most so-called “Christians” aren’t, and are more Jewish than Christian.
