    I do too. But this didn't hurt Cruz as a presidential candidate. It helped him.

    IDC’s Executive Director, Andrew Doran, then came out on stage, saying “For the love of God, we’re here to talk about Christians and we’re here to be united.”
    Then maybe cruz should have concentrated on talking about Christians instead of talking about how great jews are. just saying...

    No. He knew exactly what he was doing.

    “Christians have no greater ally than Israel,” he said, at which point members of the crowd began to yell “stop it” and booed him.

    “Those who hate Israel hate America,” he continued, as the boos and calls for him to leave the stage got louder. “Those who hate Jews hate Christians. If those in this room will not recognize that, then my heart weeps. If you hate the Jewish people you are not reflecting the teachings of Christ.
    Well, it looks like the audience was not buying the standard propaganda redefinition that says that the Israeli government and Jews are one and the same. There are plenty of Jews who are not Israeli, and there are those that do not agree with the actions of the Israeli government. That does not mean that they "hate the Jewish people", aka self-hating.

    “If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews,” he said. “Then I will not stand with you. Good night, and God bless.” And with that, he walked off the stage.
    And thus leaves the Senator from the Great State of Israel-First. I wonder if he would have the same reaction if he was talking about some Texas law or policy and people booed him on that? "If you do not stand with Texas, then I will not stand with you." Of course Cruz would never, ever criticize Texas or the United States.

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Apparently these people are unaware that they constitute a tiny minority of Christians worldwide, the overwhelming majority of whom don't share their bizarre obsession with Israel. Meanwhile, the politicians (like Cruz) that these holy-rollers support are arming the barbarians in Syria who are butchering Christian communities that pre-date their own sect by nearly 20 centuries.

    Hey, he talked about liberal hippy stuff like loving your neighbor as yourself and living at peace with all men

    I wouldn't be surprised at all if 99% of American "Christians" are not actually saved. In fact, I'd be shocked if that wasn't the case.

    Does anyone else besides me think Ted Cruz is a rather poor public speaker? Among other things, the sincerity meter only gets up to about a 1 or 2 for me when he speaks.

    I am not totally unconvinced that Cruz may be campaigning for the express purpose of helping Rand get elected at the convention. I'm guessing Cruz might like to be A.G. or on the SCOTUS.

    What did he say before the video started?

    Israel link in my sig: "U.S. State Department: Israel discriminates against Christians" Read it.
    "Let it not be said that we did nothing." - Ron Paul

    The entire internet is the domain of paid shills and bots. If you don't know this by now....

    Israel, under control of the Crown and, ultimately, the Vatican, own the USA. If you don't know this by now....

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    But now you can't talk to people because of "social distancing"....brought to you by shills and politicians.

    Cruz's problem is that he is not Paul Ryan and he is in the GOP.
    In New Zealand:
    The Coastguard is a Charity
    Air Traffic Control is a private company run on user fees
    The DMV is a private non-profit
    Rescue helicopters and ambulances are operated by charities and are plastered with corporate logos
    The agriculture industry has zero subsidies
    5% of the national vote, gets you 5 seats in Parliament
    A tax return has 4 fields
    Business licenses aren't even a thing nor are capital gains taxes

    “Religious bigotry is a cancer with many manifestations,” he continued. “ISIS, al-Qaida, Hezbollah, Hamas, state sponsors like Syria and Iran, are all engaged in a vicious genocidal campaign to destroy religious minorities in the Middle East
    Really? Syria is engaged in a vicious genocidal campaign to destroy religious minorities in the Middle East? his very stupid on the issues of middle east regrading Syria.

    Amash , being a Middle east Christian, should have been the speaker. Cruz was really a stupid choice

    Thanks for posting this . . .

    Cruz should stick to the floor of the United States Senate
    where the Canadian-born "ineligible for the Presidency" Senator from the great state of Texas
    can speak of the most important matters . . .

    he's so passionate in this youtube . . . Cruz's best oratory style at work . . .

    I think this has less to do with him talking about Jews or Israel and more to do with the fact that the audience realized he has no idea what he's talking about, or he does and is deliberately trying to move the crowd in a direction that makes no sense. Knowledgeable and intelligent people that live in the real world despise demagogues in any language or religion.

    Just reading through Cruz's comments it was obvious he was trying to spew lines of hatred and propaganda and the audience wasn't buying it because they that live there understand the Middle East is a lot more complicated than what MSM or many politicians in the U.S. try to make it out to be. Some would say messaging is formed that way because either U.S. citizens don't have the attention span to want to hear a deeper conversation about complicated issues and want it simplified for them so that it can fit in a sound bite or a 60 second clip or that is just the nature of communication mediums today, whichever the case the public is not served by this.

    Cruz's mention of "state-sponsored Syria" alone when it comes to genocide of Christians or religious minorities reminded me of a clip of a town hall a year ago (when attacking Assad was being proposed by the war hawks) where a WW2 veteran spoke to McCain about propaganda and what military involvement in Syria may actually end up resulting following unintended consequences. Also to put things in perspective at the time when the media was beating the war drums for that narrative the Alawites and Christians (as this WW2 Vet. was saying) were not being mentioned at all.



    Bottom line the same messaging that may work for politicians here in the U.S. that try to simplify, obfuscate or outright misrepresent the actual facts of what happens in day to day life in the Middle East may work on those that are ignorant and uninformed, but doesn't work on people that know details of deeper discussions or those that actually live over there and represent people that do.


    Edit: Putting this here for future reference 1:55 Cruz talks about beheading children, this claim (made a month ago) hasn't been verified yet it is still used as a reason for us to send in our military, even though all news agencies have retracted the report. Blitzer doesn't challenge the comment, thus indirectly supporting a continuation of unverified propaganda influencing viewers of CNN last night. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5cJv22Sdm8
