The Hagee-Lieberman Coalition

Though I'm someone who supports Israel's right to exist and is generally supportive of pro-Israeli policies, I find this whole coalition of some American Jews and Evangelicals way more than creepy. I mean, what kind of ally is it that supports you because it'll bring about their reward at your (eternal) expense. 

I guess I can almost understand it from a practical perspective—when you feel your and your people's very existence is threatened, you might be inclined to take your allies where you can find them. After all, at least the evangelicals don't want to drive you into the sea like many of the anti-Semetic wackjobs like Hamas, Hizbollah, and Iran's Ahmadinejad, (no, they just figure God will take care of that). Still, fear often drives people to bad decisions and this one seems like a devil's bargain to me. And unnervingly odd. Watch this video and see what I mean:

P.S. Nothing like a cameo from the creepiest politician of the past 30 years—Tom Delay—to spice up a vid clip, eh?

It's hard to believe these people are for real. If anyone is Satan, it's Hagee. It would be laughable if it weren't so scary. Why can't we all just get along? Oh, I forgot. Religion. Damn.
