Prominent GOP-Linked Evangelist: God Will Send Hunters (Like Hitler) to Pursue the Jews

COMMENT: Over the years, we’ve cov­ered the pro­found Nazi and fas­cist ele­ments at the foun­da­tion of the Repub­li­can Par­ty. This extrem­ism con­tin­ues to express itself.

Texas GOP Gov­er­nor Rick Per­ry used “The Response” prayer event to launch his pres­i­den­tial bid. That event promi­nent­ly fea­tured Mike Bick­le, head of the Inter­na­tion­al House of Prayer.

Bick­le recent­ly opined that Jews who did­n’t move to Israel and con­vert to Chris­tian­i­ty would be put in prison camps and pur­sued by hunters sent by God. Bicle cit­ed Adolf Hitler as an exam­ple of one of these God-sent hunters.

Aside from the overt Christian/Nazi nature of the com­ment, it is strik­ing to see the degree of over­lap between Chris­t­ian fas­cism and Islam­ic fas­cism.

In FTR #634 [1], we not­ed that Mus­lim Broth­er­hood-con­nect­ed fig­ures saw Hitler as hav­ing been sent by God to pun­ish the Jews.

One of the promi­nent influ­ences on the Broth­er­hood and Al Qae­da, Sayyid Qutb was one of those.

“. . . In Qutb’s eyes, the Jews are to blame for every­thing they have suf­fered over the cen­turies, and this applies to Hitler and the Shoah too. Thus, in the mod­ern peri­od, ‘the Jews again returned to evil-doing and con­se­quently Allah . . . brought Hitler to rule over them.’ But even the ‘pun­ish­ment’ met­ed out by Hitler was not suf­fi­ciently ter­ri­ble, since ‘once again today the Jews have returned to evil-doing, in the form of ‘Israel’ . . . So let Allah bring down upon the Jew­ish peo­ple . . . the worst kind of pun­ish­ment.’ Qutb’s mes­sage is inter­nally con­sis­tent: the Jew is the source of evil in the world, the Shoah is there­fore no crime and Israel deserves to be erased from the map. . . .”

In Cairo to Dam­as­cus [3], John Roy Carl­son not­ed the the sim­i­lar­i­ty in world-view and rhetoric between Chris­t­ian and Mus­lim fas­cists after inter­view­ing Has­san al-Ban­na, founder of the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood.

“. . . I asked his views on estab­lish­ing the Caliphate, the com­plete merg­er of Church and State—the Moslem equiv­a­lent of reli­gious total­i­tar­i­an­ism, as in Spain. ‘We want an Ara­bian Unit­ed States with a Caliphate at its head and every Arab state sub­scrib­ing whole­heart­edly to the laws of the Koran. . . . The laws of the Koran are suit­able for all men at all times to the end of the world.’ . . . I could not help mak­ing a men­tal note that the word ‘Chris­t­ian’ has been sim­i­larly used and with sim­i­lar fanati­cism among West­ern expo­nents of author­i­tar­i­an­ism. . . .”

Now, about Bick­le’s com­ments:

“IHOP Head Mike Bick­le Pre­dicts Com­ing Prison Camps for Jews” by Bruce Wil­son; Talk to Action; 10/18/1011. [4]

EXCERPT: Accord­ing to Kansas City-based Inter­na­tion­al House of Prayer founder and evan­ge­list Mike Bickle–who played a major role in the August 6th “The Response” prayer event that served as the de fac­to kick­off event for Rick Per­ry’s pres­i­den­tial bid–in the near future Jews who refuse to con­vert to Chris­tian­i­ty and move to Israel will be pur­sued by “hunters” sent by God and can expect to be thrown into “prison camps” and “death camps” (see embed­ded video footage, from Bick­le ser­mons)

IHOP Kansas head Bick­le says that “the most famous [heav­en-sent] hunter in recent his­to­ry is a man named Adolf Hitler”, and has claimed that Jews col­lec­tive­ly are “under the dis­ci­pline of God because of... per­ver­sion and sin.”

In Mike Bick­le’s view, a lucky one third of the world’s Jew­ish pop­u­la­tion to sur­vive the apoc­a­lyp­tic per­se­cu­tion he pre­dicts will “get rad­i­cal­ly saved and become lovesick wor­shipers of Jesus.” Bick­le has expound­ed these prophe­cies, which he claims are clear­ly described in Bib­li­cal scrip­ture, in mul­ti­ple ser­mons from 2004 through 2009.

As a new­ly released AP News sto­ry acknowl­edges, IHOP head Mike Bick­le played a sub­stan­tial role in Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial hope­ful Rick Per­ry’s August 6th, 2011 The Response Prayer event. . . .
