"Lieberman to headline Hagee’s ‘Washington-Israel Summit’"

After a sermon by Pastor John Hagee describing the Holocaust as the will of God surfaced, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) rejected Hagee’s endorsement last week. Max Blumenthal reports that Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-CT), however, is still actively supporting Hagee:

Senator Joseph Lieberman is scheduled to headline Pastor John Hagee’s 2008 Christians United For Israel Washington-Israel Summit this July 22. In accepting Hagee’s invitation, Lieberman became the most senior elected representative confirmed to appear at the annual gala.

Last year, Lieberman compared Hagee to the biblical prophet Moses. On May 13, Lieberman said Hagee “represents a lot of people in this country, particularly Christians who care about the state of Israel.”
