Hagee Says Hitler's Holocaust Fulfilled God's Will?

First, the audio…

Second, the commentary…

From Megan McCardle…

John Hagee is certainly right to wonder how God could have let the Holocaust happen. But . . . well, I’m kind of speechless. […] How long before McCain has to publicly repudiate him?

From The Carpetbagger Report:

This is the guy whose support McCain worked for a year to earn. It’s also the guy McCain refuses to repudiate, and to this day, whose endorsement he’s “proud” and “glad” to have.

For that matter, it’s also the same guy Joe Lieberman defended on Fox News last week, because, as Lieberman explained, Hagee “represents a lot of people in this country, particularly Christians who care about the state of Israel.”

Personally, I think Hagee has a very small bit of wiggle room on this, but he better clarify very soon. Because while everything is essentially “God’s” will, it certainly sounds like Hagee suggested that God created Hitler to cause the Holocaust so Jews would go to Israel…which is not only a really crazy explanation, but also incredibly demeaning with regards to why and how Israel was formed.
