    WOW, this from someone not even born in America...Already giving American litmus tests. What balls.

    Its a good trend that Israel has been loosing support.

    The event organizers brushed the booing off on "a few politically motivated opportunists" but that really doesn't jibe with Cruz walking out.

    Given the list of speakers at that Conference its no surprise that a substantial portion if the audience may embrace anti-Semitism.

    And what does a crowd of MIDDLE EASTERN CHRISTIANS have to do with the American Tea Party movement ?

    As such, suggesting that Middle Eastern Christians embrace what many may consider a contributing factor to their concerns might be viewed as tone deaf and ignorant of their position.
    In retrospect it seems Cruz used this event as a campaign stop to gin up support amongst his base (i.e., he didn't give a damn about the convention or its goals or Middle Eastern Christians, but just used them for political gain). Now that's the Cruz we all know and love

    I'm not sure what motivates this thread more: hatred for The Tea Party, or hatred of Israel.
