Bibi: Christian Zionists our top friends…[Evangelical Pastor John Hagee] announced donations of $6 million to a number of Israeli causes and declared that Israel must remain in control of all of Jerusalem. "Turning part or all of Jerusalem over to the Palestinians would be tantamount to turning it over to the Taliban," Hagee said. Jerusalem Post, 4/7/2008, Leader of Christian Zionists Named Head of Campus Anti-BDS GroupBillionaire Sheldon Adelson’s new campus operation to defend Israel has picked David Brog, the head of the largest Christian Zionist organization, as its first leader. Forward, 7/8/2015, http://forward.com/news/311662/leader-of-christian-zionists-named-head-of-adelson-campus-anti-bds-group/Brog to lead anti-BDS campus groupWASHINGTON (JTA) — An initiative that would combat the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement on campuses named its leader the director of a Christian Zionist group. David Brog, who currently directs Christians United for Israel [CUFI], will assume the leadership of Campus Maccabees, the Forward reported this week. Campus Maccabees is an initiative of Sheldon Adelson, a casino magnate who backs Republicans, and Haim Saban, an entertainment mogul who backs Democrats. Both are prominent pro-Israel donors and have cooperated in the past. Brog is Jewish. He is expected to resign as CUFI’s director, but to remain involved with the organization. JTA, 7/10/2015, http://But the most substantial political issue now setting apart CUFI from the Jewish Israel lobby is its partisan nature, which stands in contrast to AIPAC’s belief that pro-Israel activism should be kept bipartisan, since that is the only way to maintain U.S-Israel relations in the long term.

Ten years ago today the debate over the Iraq war came to Congress in the form of a resolution promoted by the Bush administration. The war in Iraq will cost the United States as much as $5 trillion. It played a role in spurring the global financial crisis. Four thousand, four hundred and eighty eight Americans were killed. More than 33,000 were injured.As many as 1,000,000 innocent Iraqi civilians were killed. The monetary cost of the war to Iraq is incalculable. A sectarian civil war has ravaged Iraq for nearly a decade. Iraq has become home to al-Qaeda. The war in Iraq was sold to Congress and the American people with easily disproved lies. We must learn from this dark period in American history to ensure that we do not repeat the same mistakes. And we must hold accountable those who misled the American public. --Former presidential candidate Rep.
