The chairman of the largest Christian Zionist group in the United States, John Hagee, told a large group of American Jews that President Barack Obama is anti-Semitic, while speaking at an event on Sunday night.

The Christians United for Israel (CUFI)  chairman and San-Antonio mega-church pastor, was receiving an award from the Zionist Organization of America when he made the comments.

During his speech, Hagee referred to Obama as “one of the most anti-Semitic presidents in the history of the United States of America,” due to his lack of support for the Holy Land in his foreign policy agenda.

Hagee also mocked Obama for having previously called US-Israeli relations unbreakable, stating that: “He knows it’s unbreakable because he’s been trying to break it for the last five years.”


US Senator Ted Cruz, a long-time critic of US policy toward Israel , headlined the Zionist organization's event along with Hagee.

Cruz, a likely 2016 presidential hopeful, highlighted the danger of nuclear weapons as a threat to Israel. The US senator called upon the Obama administration to stand up to the Iranian nuclear program stating that under no circumstances should Iran be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.

“The threats to Israel right now have never been greater, and now is a time when we do not need leaders who simply speak empty words of support for Israel,” Cruz said. “We need leaders who will stand and act. Now, more than ever, is a time to strengthen the unshakable alliance and friendship America has with the nation of Israel.”
