American Evangelical pastor John Hagee — who heads the largest pro-Israel  lobby group in the United States — half jokingly compared Benjamin Netanyahu to  the Messiah on Sunday night, as he waited for the delayed prime minister to  arrive at a Jerusalem hotel to address the crowd.

“There’s a saying in Judaism about the Messiah — I know that even if he  tarries, he’ll come,” Hagee told hundreds of members of Christians United for  Israel. “I know that the prime minister will come, and even if he tarries, he’ll  come.”

The crowd laughed, and so did Hagee. But as Hagee introduced Netanyahu when  he finally arrived half an hour later, the comparison with the Messiah no longer  seemed so far-fetched.

“He was a fighter in an elite unit and helped free the hostages on the  Sabena, and fought in the Yom Kippur War,” Hagee began. “As finance minister, he  brought Israel from welfare to work [applause]. He strengthened the private  sector and cut down the public sector. He’s married to Sara, and his son  Jonathan [sic] is a national Bible champion [applause]. He gets up every morning  at six to study the Bible with his son [wild applause]…

“He also changed the path of Christianity in America, when he asked me in  2006 if he thought American Christians could unite for Israel,” Hagee continued.  “Ancient Israel had Moses who led them in the desert; during the golden era they  had King David, who conquered Jerusalem, and today, when there are existential  threats, Israel has a champion who can confront the challenge; please welcome  the prime minister…[more wild applause, whistles, and the sound of a shofar from  somewhere].”
