Don’t call it a comeback. The Rev. John Hagee’s been here for years. Today his organization, Christians United for Israel, gave Congress a petition, with more than 100,000 signatures, expressing solidarity with Israel:

It states that “there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel and Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks.

The petition goes on to say that its signers pledge to speak out on behalf of their “brothers and sisters in Israel” whenever and wherever necessary “until the attacks stop and they are finally living in peace and security with their neighbors.”

In a statement, Hagee said, “As our leaders in Washington make decisions about American foreign policy in the Middle East, it is important for them to know that Christians across the country remain solidly committed to a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.”
