Ted Cruz leaves stage after pro-Israel comments draw boos
Breitbart News and CBN are reporting that Texas Senator Ted Cruz was booed off a stage last night at an event in Washington when he voiced support for Israel.
OneNewsNow — The first-term Republican was the keynote speaker at a dinner organized by a newly formed group that calls itself “In Defense of Christians.” According to the reports, the crowd – which included Palestinians who identify themselves as Christians – began to boo Cruz when he told the crowd that anyone who hates Israel and the Jewish people “are not reflecting the teachings of Christ.”
Cruz left the stage and later released a statement saying “anti-Semitism is a corrosive evil, and it reared its ugly head tonight.”
A recent report questions the “pro-Christian” claims of last night’s summit and its organizers, alleging that the group’s actual intent is to promote the interests of Iran and its Mideast clients – the Assad regime in Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon.
