George W. Bush claimed that he answered to “a higher father” as he plotted his Middle East policy, and much of that policy seemed as if it might bring the end times. Now it seems the end of the world was actual policy for the adminstration.
Later this month, Bush is speaking at a fundraiser for the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute, a “Jewish” group that is trying to get the Jews to return to Israel so this world can end, as the New Testament allegedly foretells.
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and journalist Sarah Posner made the connection between Bush’s foreign policy and the far right’s obsession with the “restoration of Israel” on Friday. And the story involves a pastor who believes God sent Hitler to get the Jews back to Israel.
You’ve got to see this to believe it.
