Pat Robertson: ‘The Poor Jews Don’t Understand’ Anti-Semitism

On Thursday, televangelist Pat Robertson discussed anti-Semitism on The 700 Club. Satan, he said, is utilizing anti-Semitism to get rid of Israel. But “the poor Jews don’t understand” the roots of this, he said. It’s “too cosmic for most of them to grasp.”

Why is there so much anti-Semitism? There is a God and there is a Devil, Robertson said. The Devil, he said, hates Israel because it is “evidence of the existence of God […] the Messiah of the world came through Israel.” By destroying Israel, the Devil thinks he somehow will “wipe out that consciousness that people have of the existence of God.”

The reasons are all there, he said. That’s the root of the problem. But “the poor Jews don’t understand that, it’s too cosmic for most of them to grasp, especially because they don’t believe Jesus is the Messiah.”
