The latest Hagee flap: Did McCain backer blame Jews for the Holocaust?


Pastor John Hagee, who offered a high-profile endorsement of John McCain earlier this year, is again under the microcscope, thanks to this article on HunffingtonPost about his assertion that the Holocaust was essentially God’s punishment for Jews who did not leave Europe for Palestine.

The bad news for Hagee (and McCain): The comments are on YouTube.

The cherry on top for Democrats … To make his case, Hagee quoted from Jeremiah. Wonder who that will make people think of?

Rabbi Eric Yoffie, president of the Union for Reform Judaism, has written Hagee a letter, asking for an explanation.
