Spannaus: Don't let Falwell
and Robertson Destroy Israel!
May 13, 2002 (EIRNS)—This statement was released today by the Spannaus for Senate campaign.
It is unfortunately the case that Virginia is the home base for two of the most destructive "Christian Zionist" spokesmen in our nation--"Diamond Pat" Robertson and Jerry "Armageddon Now" Falwell. But does that mean that the Virginia Democratic Party leadership has to act like their "amen chorus?"
While spewing vicious anti-Palestinian racism and cultism, Robertson and Falwell are actually being true to their roots--virulent anti-semitic roots. Such notables as Alexander Schindler, former president of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, have said that it was "madness and suicide if Jews honor for their support of Israel, right-wing evangelists who constitute a danger to the Jews of the United States." And Falwell, one should recall, let his true views out back in February 1999, when, in a discussion of the coming Anti-Christ, he baldly stated that "Of course he will be Jewish."
Yet while Falwell and Robertson campaign for Armageddon, the official Virginia Democratic Party sits back and lets the slaughter continue. I, for one, am fighting for Israel by demanding the U.S. stop supporting that fascist Sharon, and implement an economic development plan. Has the Virginia Democratic Party leadership joined the Israeli suicide gang?
