Hagee draws AIPAC cheers

A fiery pro-Israel speech by an evangelical preacher drew multiple standing
ovations from thousands of AIPAC delegates. Pastor John Hagee, who last year
founded Christians United for Israel, spoke Sunday night at the launch of the
American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual policy forum in Washington.
Hagee outlined his vision of a united evangelical-Jewish front lobbying for
Israel. He pledged to “stand up for Israel, to financially support Israel until
Israel achieves a just, lasting peace. Israel, you are not alone.” He finished
his speech by leading the crowd in a chorus of “Israel Lives!”
