Having created a bit of controversy by blaming Donald Trump’s Jewish advisers—specifically, Trump’s daughter Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner—for last week’s airstrike on Syria, Religious Right activist Dave Daubenmire addressed the issue on his “Pass The Salt” webcast today.
Daubenmire spent a good portion of the program arguing that modern Jews are not the same as the Jewish people of the Old Testament because there has been so much intermarriage and dispersion over the generations that there is no longer such a thing as pure “bloodline Jews.”
As such, Daubenmire insisted that today’s Jews “are no longer God’s chosen people” and no longer have God’s blessing because they are “Christ-haters.”
“They’re not His chosen people,” he said. “Listen! We had better come to the realization as to who has this blessing fallen upon? Who? Is it upon those guys over [in Israel], those Christ-haters—I hate to even say it—the Christ-haters? The blessing of God is coming through those Christ-haters? Are you kidding me? That’s what we’re supposed to believe?”
“America is fighting Israel’s wars,” he continued. “And we’re doing it because why? Because those who bless Israel will be blessed. Well, we had better ask ourselves this question: Who is Israel? Are you talking about that piece of land? I don’t doubt something important is happening on that piece of land, but you’re telling me that those people there who hate Jesus are the ones that the world is being blessed through them? That doesn’t make sense to me.”
