Top Dem: Christians want Jews 'slaughtered'

At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., a Jewish Democratic county chairman lashed out at evangelical Christians, claiming they aren’t true friends of Jews and that Christians want Jews “slaughtered” to bring about the second coming of Jesus Christ.

“I’m Jewish,” Palm Beach County Democratic chairman Mark Alan Siegel told Scottie Neil Hughes, a reporter attending the DNC who represents Patriot TV and the Tea Party News Network. “I’m not a fan of any religion of any religion other than Judaism.”

Hughes asked, “So, you’re not a fan of Christianity?”

“No, I’m not,” Seigel answered. “The Christians just want us to be there so we can all be slaughtered and converted and bring on the second coming of Jesus Christ. They (Christians) are not our friends. They want Israel to pursue policies that are antithetical with its security and existence.”

Seigel deflected a question from Hughes, determined to continue his diatribe.

“The worst possible allies for the Jewish state are evangelical Christians, who want Jews to die and convert so they can bring on the second coming of their Lord,” he declared. “It is a false friendship. They are seeking their ends and not ours.”

The Jewish Week, published in New York, reported that Seigel had been angered over the omission of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in the Democratic Party platform.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported just last week that South Florida, “the state’s Democratic stronghold,” sent a bus organized by Seigel that brought 40 Democrats to the DNC in North Carolina. The bus left from Deerfield Beach on Sunday, with stops in West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie, Daytona Beach, St. Augustine and Jacksonville.

Travel expenses reportedly ranged from $150 to $175 per person, compared to a cost of approximately $400 for airfare.

Christians Don't Want Jewish Death

Democrat leader Mark Siegel stated at the DNC that "fundamentalist Christians...want Jews to die and convert so they can bring on the second coming of their Lord."
It wasn't Glenn Beck, John Hagee, Hal Lindsey or any other Christian who first talked about the predicted massive slaughter of Jews during what Christians call the "end times."
It was the ancient Hebrew prophet Zechariah who as long ago as 487 B.C. predicted that two-thirds of Jewry in the "last days" will be killed (Zech. 13:8).
All true Christian leaders view this scripture with horror and sympathy and NOT with glee!
Fundamentalist Christians are actually waiting for an "any-moment rapture" to Heaven (several years before the second coming) and do not believe that any event, including this final Jewish holocaust, has to happen before their escapist rapture happens.
More shocks. Fundamentalists have recently been learning that their rapture belief was first taught in Britain in 1830 and that it wasn't widely adopted by Americans until the early 1900s. The documentation on all this is in "The Rapture Plot" (carried by online bookstores) which also reveals for the first time that, amazingly enough, this British theory has an anti-Jewish foundation! (For more info Google "Pretrib Rapture Politics.")
Although no one is perfect, evangelical Christians (including fundamentalists) are still the best friends of Jewish persons and Israel.
