Blue 7th PAC calls on Congressman Ferguson to Condemn Robertson’s Anti-Sharon and Anti-Rabin Stateme
Blue 7th PAC is calling on Congressman Mike Ferguson to immediately condemn recent hateful statements by leading conservative and former Republican Presidential candidate Rev. Pat Robertson.
Speaking on the “700 Club” on Thursday, January 5, Robertson suggested that the massive, life-threatening stroke and cerebral hemorrhage Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon suffered last week was punishment by God for dividing Israel, according to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. Robertson went on to say the assassination of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was also God’s will for the same action.
“Leadership means standing up for what is right, even when it is difficult to do so,” said Nathan Rudy, chair of Blue 7th PAC. “By not standing up to Reverend Robertson’s misguided and ignorant statements about Prime Minister Sharon’s health and Israeli politics, Ferguson shows himself once again he lacks the leadership we need in Congress.”
