Rally held by group founded by controversial American Christian leader backs Israeli sovereignty over entire unified capital while donating millions to public causes. 'Turning part or all of Jerusalem over to the Palestinians would be tantamount to turning it over to the Taliban,' Hagee says (more here)
Hagee's group, Christians United for Israel, held a colorful rally at Jerusalem's convention center. The mostly American audience waved Israeli flags and cheered as Hagee joined keynote speaker Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel's hardline opposition Likud party, to insist Jerusalem remain united and under Jewish control.

UPDATE: From UK reader David;
Guess what? I was there! What a blast! He was TERRIFIC, as was the "ruach" of this entire upbeat event.
Screw Yoffe and comrades. Having diluted their own Judaism to the nth degree, they now have the chutzpah to "excommunicate" this great friend of Israel and the Jewish people! Bah Humbug! Hagee and Co.are real friends of Israel, walking the walk, literally (they come in their thousands to tour and march) as well as figuratively, putting their money where they heart and loyalty is. $6M doled out to worthy causes, including some I know, such as "Meir Panim" ("Light Up Their Faces"), which feeds and helps the hungry and destitute, who received a check for $500K, one of the bigger recipients.
I just loved all the American and Israeli flags being waved together by the audience. There were flags of every State in the Union.
