How anti-Semitic beliefs have taken hold among some evangelical Christians - 2019-08-22
Aryeh Tuchman, the associate director of the Center on Extremism at the Anti-Defamation League, points to several YouTube channels where pastors promote a mix of Christian theology and anti-Jewish animus.
TruNews, a nightly newscast with more than 18 million views on YouTube, bills its purpose "to offer Christians a positive alternative to the anti-Christian bigotry of the mainstream media." Jews and Israel are a constant target for Rick Wiles, the Florida pastor who runs the show.
In the past month alone, Wiles has posited that sex offender Jeffrey Epstein might not have died but instead been spirited away to a safe house in Israel; listed the names of "Hollywood Jews" who produced the pulled-from-theaters satirical movie "The Hunt" and suggested that they actually want to hunt and kill white Christians; called the non-Jewish billionaire "Rabbi Warren Buffett"; said the government could take away guns from anyone who criticizes Israel; referred to Ivanka Trump, who is Jewish, as "Yael Kushner"; and more.
