After disturbing new audiotape surfaced of Rev. Hagee saying that God sent Hitler to cause the Holocaust so that Jews would move to Israel, tens of thousands of J Street and MoveOn activists signed a petition asking McCain to finally renounce Hagee’s endorsement. Soon after we launched the action, John McCain announced that he was rejecting Hagee’s endorsement. We did it!
Unfortunately, Hagee’s ties to mainstream American politicians and prominent Jewish leaders remain deep. McCain’s rejection of Hagee’s endorsement is by no means the end of J Street’s efforts to rid the American political scene of Hagee’s hateful rhetoric. Stay tuned for our upcoming campaigns.
