U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, who invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to Congress this month, will visit Israel in the coming weeks, his spokesman said Friday.
The Israeli newspaper Haaretz calls Speaker Boehner “U.S. President Barack Obama’s arch rival and the man who invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to make his controversial speech in Congress.”
Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to the U.S. Congress on March 3rd seemed oriented towards undermining peace negotiations with Iran. Why – because he wants war? The terms of the deal have not even been released yet? Why the rush? A letter from 47 opposition senators directly to Iranian leadership in regards to the peace deal also made the situation more complex – and “two-faced.”
Senior Israeli officials who asked to remain anonymous said Boehner will begin his visit – which has not yet been announced publicly – on March 31st, states Haaretz. He will be heading a delegation of Republican Congress members.
The John Hagee ministries website says that Pastor Matthew Hagee is the sixth generation in the Hagee family to do Gospel ministry.
“He serves as the Executive Pastor of the 20,000 member Cornerstone Church in San Antonio, Texas where he partners with his father, founder Pastor John Hagee. Pastor Matthew Hagee’s teachings are telecast over world-wide television through John Hagee Ministries. He is fervently committed to preaching all the Gospel to all the world and to every generation.”
He is a graduate of Oral Roberts University School of Business and is the author of “Shaken, Not Shattered” and recently released “Response-Able” both published by Strang Communications.
On yesterday’s “Hagee Hotline,” Matthew Hagee announced the creation of something called “The Sanctuary of Hope,” which will be a “training ground for the next generation of the the soldiers in the army of the of the living God that are going to do great things for his kingdom.”
