Hagee “Clarifies” Holocaust Remarks

John Hagee, recognizing that “in the heat of a campaign season, some have attempted to use my words to divide us,” sends a letter to the Anti-Defamation League to “clarify my views on Jews, the Holocaust and the state of Israel.” He writes: “I have devoted much of my adult life to combating anti-Semitism and supporting the state of Israel. My commitment to eradicating anti-Semitism, including its historic antecedents in the Christian community, has been central to my ministry.” Investigating the “purpose of this letter,” David Brody “was told that Hagee wanted to make sure there were no hurt feelings or pains in the Jewish community.”
