Republican hopeful touts endorsement of Mike Bickle, who seeks to convert the Jews and says God sent Hitler to hunt them.
American Jewish groups have demanded that presidential hopeful Ted Cruz clarify his position on his provocative endorsement from an evangelical leader whose views on Jews are highly controversial.

“American Jewish groups have demanded...”
My response would be F you too.
Hitler hunter sent by God. Unless this guy introduces immediate evidence of infallible prophet status then he is engaging in mindless speculation with a personal religious veneer. Cruz should distance himself from this pretty quickly.
That is assuming this is even true. This campaign is so deceitful on every side.
I thought the skinheads were robocalling for DT, not TC.
The article refers to “Jewish groups,” but the only one mentioned is the National Jewish Democratic Council, a liberal Democrat group.
Did the same groups ask Obama to ‘splain Rev. Wright?
The MSM, the DNC, and the GOPe will do ANYTHING, say ANYTHING, lie, maling, etc. to bring down Cruz.
Bickle himself has said the following about this attack against Cruz and against himself:
âThere are several false statements being promoted by the liberal press that distort what I believe. I am very committed to Israel â so is the ministry of IHOP.
âMy point in sharing Zechariah 12:1-3 and Zechariah 14:1-3 and Jeremiah 16 and especially Zechariah 13:8-9, is to stir the church up to stand with Israel in time of a future persecution as foretold by most of the Jewish prophets in the Bible. My message is that the Church must respond like Corrie Ten Boomâs family by standing with Israel instead of drawing back in fear and silenceâ¦â
Now, I have never heard of this guy before. But Cruz has indicated that what detractors are saying is not so, and the man himself has not come out and indicated it is not so.
Ted! Keep Mike's brother Travis far away from you!
Nope. Jews voted 78% for Obama the first time.
There were threads about this guy and IHOP a few weeks ago.
My impression was that it’s a bunch of loony tunes.
Trump is going to be in serious trouble if he has to explain the views of every screwy backer.
I was just going to say, ‘What groups’? This is an old trick. I get so tired of their tricks.
Bickle is a dipshit. If Cruz spent twenty tears in his church listening to this freak then I’d be concerned. If Caroline Glick supports Ted then who am I to disagree?
I was starting to come around to Cruz. He needs to distance himself from the ideas espoused by Mike Bickle and fast. From what I have read and heard the church Mike Bickle runs (IHOP in Kansas City) is is basically a cult with a lot of wacky ideas about prophesy, modern day apostles (New Apostolic Movement, etc. Cruz needs to disassociate himself from all this garbage.
The National Jewish Democratic Council is to Judaism as the Jewish KAPOS were to the Germans, aiders and abettor of the destruction of the Jews.
I know one of the past leaders of the NJDC and while he is a decent person, his politics are so far left (non-communist but far-left liberal), that he cannot see the harm he is doing to his fellow Jews, both here and in Israel.
There are a few other so-called “Jewish” organizations such as J Street, that claim to speak for we Jewish Americans, but they don’t. They are self-proclaimed “spokesmen for American Jewry” but nobody appointed them.
Even the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has been turning Left over the years, trying to imitate the far-left Southern Poverty Law Center in their denunciation of people and organizations who don’t pass their “liberal” test.
Do not follow the false prophets of the Left. They do not lead you to freedom, only more Marxist/authoritarian Obamaism/Sanderism.
The Jews are demonstrating a marked lowering of IQ.
Do da name Dorkbama the MUSLIM mean anything to ya there, folks?
Good grief, Israel, get RID of ALL of your slimy liberals.
Ted Cruz’s Father Says God Intervened To Tell His Son To Run For President After ‘Six Months’ Of Prayer
Ted Cruz, who won the Republican Iowa caucuses on Monday, decided to run for president after “six months” of prayer, culminating in a two-hour session on bended knee during which the Texas Senator was given the nod.
Pastor Rafael Cruz, the Senator’s father, made the revelation to a religious TV station last week.
Speaking of the fateful prayer session, Cruz senior said: “It was as if there was a presence of the Holy Spirit in the room and we all were at awe and Ted, all that came out of his mouth, he said, ‘Here am I Lord, use me. Here am I Lord, I surrender to whatever Your will for my life is.’ And it was at that time that he felt a peace about running for president of the United States.”
Pound sand.... (nice version)
Would these same Jewish groups please ask Bernie Sanders why a good Jew would run as a Socialist? P.S. I don’t believe a good _______ (fill in the blank) would embrace Socialism.
Yeah.... We should believe them /sarc
