Hagee: Iceland Volcano Was God’s Response To British Ad Ban

Last week, Rush Limbaugh said the eruption of the volcano in Iceland was “God speaking” in response to the passage of health care reform.

But John Hagee has a different explanation, saying it was God’s response to the decision by Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority that the Western Wall could not appear in tourism ads:

Television and radio evangelist Pastor John Hagee believes the recent eruption of the volcano in Iceland stems from Britain breaking God’s covenant.

The day after Britain’s Advertising Standards Authority said the Western Wall in Jerusalem could not be used in Israeli tourism ads in Britain because it is considered occupied territory, Hagee said, the volcano erupted, shutting down Britain’s economy in one day.

“That’s coincidence, like the flood was a coincidence. That’s coincidence, like the Red Sea was coincidence. That’s coincidence, like the earthquake and the Resurrection was coincidence,” Hagee told about 3,200 people at Lancaster County Convention Center on Thursday night as part of John Hagee Ministries’ Rally and Prophecy Seminar.

Hagee went on to warn President Obama for his treatment of Israel, saying “any country who tries to change [God’s covenant with Abraham] will get the judgment of God. It’s like sticking your finger in the eye of God.”
