World Vision leader’s anti-Israel comments

Markell calls out World Vision leader for anti-Israel comments

The head of a messianic Jewish ministry is calling a liberal theological leader to task for his anti-Israel comments.

“For over 60 years,” said Steve Haas, vice president of World Vision U.S., “many Evangelicals have clung to a very narrow theological narrative that weds Christian theology with a political ideology known as Zionism.”

Lausanne Global Analysis recently published excerpts of a chapel speech delivered by Haas at a New England seminary last year.

Haas compared so-called “Christian Zionists” to Spanish inquisitors, Crusaders, supporters of apartheid South Africa, and other historical atrocities.

“He says Israel is apartheid on steroids,” comments Jan Markell, founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries. “
