DFA - Footage of Lieberman Likening Hagee to Moses

Click here to view video of the much reported, but never before seen remarks by Senator Joe Lieberman likening Pastor Hagee to Moses at the Christians United for Israel Conference in Washington last year:

As you are likely aware, Senator Lieberman has committed to speak to the CUFI conference again this year, despite the recent airing of the Pator's incendiary remarks about the Holocaust and Senator McCain's subsequent renunciation of the Pastor's endorsement.

J Street--this country's first pro-Peace, pro-Israel PAC and lobby, has launched a major netroots campaign in partnership with Democracy for America, urging Sen. Lieberman to reject Pastor Hagee’s hatemongering and to refuse to appear at the 2008 Christians United for Israel Washington-Israel Summit this July 22. Democracy for America and its over 700,000 members and J Street are asking Americans to sign the petition and join the movement to keep Pastor Hagee’s brand of religious intolerance out of American political discourse.The petition has already been signed by over 15,000 people.

If you would like to speak with Jeremy Ben-Ami, executive director of J Street, who will call on Lieberman to follow McCain's example in publicly rejecting Pastor Hagee and his religious intolerance, please contact me directly, (202)265-3000 or (202)279-0005.
