John Hagee Ministries has raised another $9.5 million for Israeli and Jewish causes, according to the organization. John Hagee, who founded Christians United For Israel, will announce donations of $9.5 million on Sunday at a â€œNight to Honor Israelâ€ event at his Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Tex. Hagee is controversial because of his closeness to Jewish settlers and because of his eschatology, which prescribes a Jewish return to Israel as a precondition of the messianic age. In the past, his ministry’s money has funded Jewish institutions in the West Bank. No details were provided about recipients for the new contributions. Hagee’s church has raised tens of millions of dollars for Israel since the early 1980s.
