‘Half-Breed Jew’ Committed Holocaust, Claims Netanyahu Ally John Hagee


By Bruce Wilson, Huffington Post

Who committed the Holocaust? For the overwhelming majority of historians and, needless to say, Jews it’s a settled question: Hitler, and his Nazis. But Christians United For Israel (CUFI) head John Hagee, one of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s closest American allies, has a different answer: “half-breed Jews.”

Netanyahu meets frequently with Hagee, endorses CUFI, has spoken at numerous CUFI events, and lavishes Hagee and his organization with praise. Prime Minister Netanyahu is currently scheduled to speak at CUFI’s annual Washington summit, July 13-14 2015.

John Hagee book Jerusalem CountdownHagee’s Christians United For Israel organization currently sells a book by pastor John Hagee, Jerusalem Countdown: A warning To The World, which on page 149 (2006 “revised and updated” paperback edition) claims Adolf Hitler was a “half-breed Jew” and states (p. 97) that Hitler was sent by God, as a “hunter,” to persecute Europe’s Jews and drive them towards “the only home God ever intended for the Jews to have-Israel.”

In 2008 media uproar over Hagee’s “hunter” claim (as made in a 2005 sermon that was exposed by this author) led presidential candidate John McCain to renounce his long-sought endorsement from pastor Hagee.

Hagee’s claim that Hitler was Jewish is not new. In a 2003 sermon broadcast internationally and marketed as a VHS cassette, John Hagee claimed [link to video of sermon] the Antichrist would be “partially Jewish, as was Adolf Hitler, as was Karl Marx.”

CUFI head John Hagee also blames anti-Semitism on Jews themselves, writing in Jerusalem Countdown (p. 56) that “It was the disobedience and rebellion of the Jews… that gave rise to the opposition and persecution that they experienced beginning in Canaan and continuing to this very day.” Hagee’s book then traces (p. 57) the birth of anti-Semitism to Jewish idol worship:

How utterly repulsive, insulting, and heartbreaking to God for his chosen people to credit idols with bringing blessings he had showered upon the chosen people. Their own rebellion had birthed the seed of anti-Semitism that would arise and bring destruction to them for centuries to come.

In Hagee’s account “half-breed Jews,” Hitler included, have served as the human agents by which God implements a divine curse placed upon the racially pure (non-miscegenated) Jewish people.

On page 149 of Hagee’s book Jerusalem Countdown, in a chapter with the ominous title “Who Is a Jew,” Hagee writes,

Esau’s descendants would produce a lineage that would attack and slaughter the Jews for centuries. Esau’s descendants included Haman, whose diabolical mind conceived the “final solution” of the Old Testament — the extermination of all Jews living in Persia. It was Esau’s descendants who produced the half-breed Jews of history who have persecuted and murdered the Jews beyond human comprehension.

Adolf Hitler was a distant descendant of Esau.

In his next sentence, Hagee goes on to make the false claim that in the 1976 book Adolf Hitler: The Definitive Biography, noted Hitler biographer John Toland “records that Hitler was part Jewish.” What Toland actually stated in his Hitler biography was “There is the slight possibility that Hitler’s grandfather was a wealthy Jew named Frankenberger or Frankenreither.”

Hagee’s identification of a miscegenated race of “half-breed Jews” tracing back to Esau seems to originate in theological ideas from the fringe, virulently racist white supremacist Christian Identity movement, as described in books such as Religion and The Racist Right: The Origins of the Christian Identity Movement, by leading authority Dr. Michael Barkun.

While John Hagee has for decades loudly and publicly condemned anti-Semitism, his writings and sermons have nonetheless promoted some of the most influential and inflammatory anti-Jewish tropes of the modern era, such as the claim that predatory Jewish bankers control international finance and prey upon the masses of humankind.

In a March 23, 2003 sermon broadcast internationally, Hagee claimed European Rothschild bankers, along with David Rockefeller, controlled the U.S. economy through the Federal Reserve — which according to Hagee was bankrupting average Americans by devaluing the dollar.

The Jewish Anti-Defamation League identifies this type of Federal Reserve conspiracy theory, that places Jewish bankers at the center of the proposed grand financial conspiracy, as a “classic anti-Semitic myth”

Hagee’s Jewish banker conspiracy theory was astonishingly similar to claims showcased in the 1940 anti-Jewish Nazi propaganda film The Eternal Jew, said to have been produced under supervision of Hitler’s propagandist Joseph Goebbels [link to video footage] .

The Nazi film claimed (see link, above) that Jewish bankers, led by European Rothschilds, had “spread their net of financial influence over the working man” and were using their influence over global finance to “terrorize world [money] markets, world opinion, and world politics.”

In his March 23, 2003 sermon, that was marketed by John Hagee Ministries as a 3-VHS cassette tape series, Hagee explained [video link], to his megachurch members and to audiences viewing Hagee’s sermon on evangelical radio and TV networks across the globe:

It may be shocking to you but I believe that America’s economic problems are not created by market conditions, they are planned and orchestrated to devalue and to destroy the value of the dollar. It was done by an unseen government that I’ll discuss later in this message.


Our economic destiny is controlled by the Federal Reserve system that is now headed by Alan Greenspan. Think about this. It is not a government institution. It is controlled by a group of Class A stockholders including the Rothschilds of Europe and the David Rockefellers of America…

So get this one thought. The value of the dollar is controlled by an agency which is not controlled by America. You don’t have to have a Ph.D. in finance to understand that. The value of your dollar is controlled by an organization, the Federal Reserve that is not controlled by America. That’s a fact.

Hagee also aired his Jewish banker conspiracy theory in his 1996 book Day of Deception that was reprinted in 2000 in an edition billed as having sold “over 1.1 million copies.” Hagee’s Day of Deception is still sold, by Thomas Nelson publishers. In the book, Hagee makes clear that European Rothschilds (not Rockefellers) have majority shareholder control of the Federal Reserve.

In his March 23, 2003 sermon, Hagee predicted that Jewish financiers were behind a satanic Illuminati plot, based in Europe, that would bring the Antichrist to power. This Antichrist, who in a prior sermon Hagee had predicted would be both partially Jewish and homosexual, would according to Hagee [video link] slaughter up to 1/3 of the world’s population and “make Hitler look like a choirboy”.

Hagee’s claim that Hitler was “partially Jewish” fits into an emerging American right-wing revisionist genre, with both evangelical and secular expressions, that is rewriting the Holocaust by recasting the victims of Nazi persecution, such as Jews, liberals, communists, and homosexuals, as having been themselves the architects of Nazi persecution and the Holocaust.

      in one regard he is right Zionists worked with hitler to move jews from Europe to Palestine those who refuse…d hitler could put into concentration camps…Edwin black’s book ‘transfer agreement’ documents this fact European jews were not going to leave Germany and move to the desert Mideast willingly oy vey


      Your referring to “messianic jews” aka Christians in denial.

      CUFI head John Hagee also blames anti-Semitism on Jews themselves, writing in Jerusalem Countdown (p. 56) that “It was the disobedience and rebellion of the Jews… that gave rise to the opposition and persecution that they experienced beginning in Canaan and continuing to this very day.” The Qur’an gives full details of such disobedience from the forty years of wandering in the desert of Peran to the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar and Titus. Their disobedience on Muhammad Rasulullah and the punishment they received is however regarded as in human and anti-Semitism. John is right for he did not quote from the Qur’an and is free. How selfish and unfair is civilization and knowledge?

      This loon is exactly the type of person Netanyahu was courting when he made his speech before Congress. I always hated the “Jews for Jesus” crowd, which was yet another 70s-era cult that managed to hang on somehow.

      Onion bread is, in fact, half-Jewish bread. It seems that when you can’t get yeast, you can knead peeled and chopped, but unwashed, raw onion into dough, and the natural yeasts between the layers will raise it. When the Jews of Eastern Europe were ghettoized so strictly that they couldn’t get much besides flour and raw onions, they developed onion bread, onion rolls, and onion bagels into a fine art.

      …between AmericaN and Iraq.. on the other hand the entire paragraph is so wrong on so many levels..

      … recasting the victims of Nazi persecution, such as Jews, liberals, communists, and homosexuals, as having been themselves the architects of Nazi persecution and the Holocaust….

      this explains where people like “Santiago Matamoros” are getting their ideas from… It really takes some synaptic rearrangement (derangement) to be able to follow this line.. And yes, even Merkelians use this logic for their governing style.. “What? You feel, You are discriminated against? Well, it is Your own fault because of the lack on “integration” You exhibit!” -paraphrased quotations…

      There is some possibility that Reinhardt Heydrich had a Jewish grandfather. He was pretty expensive upkeep for the Reich, because, whenever he had to be put up in a hotel, he would shoot out all the mirrors trying to kill the Jew he thought he saw appearing in them. Meanwhile, Josef Mengele, who had a sadistic fascination with Roma people, was described as “looking like a Gypsy.”

      It can’t be discounted that he thought that. That myth also appears in Osamu Tezuka’s “Adolf”. If it were true that Hitler had a Jewish ancestor, it would be general knowledge. What I do know is that Torquemada, who was instrumental in the pursuit of Jews in Spain in the 15th century, was descended of Jews. It can happen that people betray their own, and that just those, to show their loyalty to the oppressor, are worse that those who actually belong to the oppressor’s group. For example the traitors and renegades Emir Kusturica and Fikret Abdic. I think they are much worse than Karadzic or Mladic themselves.

      I got the newest fringe theory: Hitler was an Austrian-born German Roman-Catholic! It is even featured in Weltjudentum-controlled Wikipedia:

      “Adolf Hitler (German: [ˈadɔlf ˈhɪtlɐ]; 20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945) was an Austrian-born German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party (German: Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP); National Socialist German Workers Party).”

    • Reynardine

      Ron Rosenbaum pretty much debunked that Hitler-was-a-Jew myth. It’s possible , though, that Hitler was afraid it was true.

    • GaribaldiOfLoonwatch

      Anyone notice the description on the back of the packaging for Hagee’s VHS set, Iraq: The Final War

      “The war between American and Iraq is the gateway to the apocalypse. It makes no difference how long the war lasts…2 months or 2 years. It will destabilize the Middle East and produce an Islamic army of millions, willing to fight to the death, in a massive all out Holy War.”

      drip…drip…drip that was the sound of my brain cells dying in disbelief at the stupidity some people exhibit :/
