anti-SemitismThe leader of a pro-Israel ministry says anti-Semitic statements from self-described evangelical podcaster Rick Wiles are particularly offensive to her and other defenders of the Jewish nation.

It's not difficult to find anti-Semitic comments by Rick Wiles on his video podcasts:

Wiles: "There's the evidence that Donald Trump, the Trump Campaign, the Republican Party, does not support Christian values. They support Jewish values, because homosexuality is a Jewish value. They're pushing the agenda because they have control of Washington. They have control of the Trump administration. Donald Trump is owned by the Jews."

That kind of rhetoric has a familiar and chilling ring to it, according to Laurie Cardoza-Moore of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations.

"If you look at the pattern of words he used and how he phrased those words, it is that same pattern that has been used historically to mobilize Christians to initiate pogroms against Jews," she tells OneNewsNow. "Germany was an educated, Christian nation that elected [Adolf Hitler], that put this man in office. That should make all of us very concerned, very fearful."

Wiles' comments come in the shadow of rising anti-Semitism around the globe, particularly in Europe.

"We as Christians, in this hour, when we see the rise of global anti-Semitism, we cannot be silent," says Cardoza-Moore. "We must speak up – because what happens to Israel will happen to the Church."

Columnist Dr. Michael L. Brown, a Messianic Jew, labels growing anti-Semitism among evangelicals as a "very disturbing trend" that he has confronted more in the last year than in his past 47 years combined. In a recent column, Brown called on Wiles and his news network, TruNews, to repent of their anti-Semitism – and until that happens for all Christians to shun him and his network.
