Christian Anti-Semite Rick Wiles: The “Antichrist Will Be Jewish”

We get it, Rick Wiles — you really don’t like Jews.

You’ve let the media know more than a few times. But just in case his feelings still weren’t clear, here he is proclaiming on his TruNews show that the antichrist will be Jewish:

“The unsaved Jews, because they rejected Jesus Christ as the son of God, the Messiah, and now, for 2,000 years, they have been in rebellion against God by rejecting Jesus Christ and they are still searching for a Jewish king,” Wiles said. “They don’t want a savior; they want a king.”

“They did not want Jesus Christ as their king and they are still searching for a king today,” he added. “But this person that the Jews are going to turn to, I believe, is Antichrist. And it confirms what I have believed for a long time, [which] is the person that we refer to as Antichrist will be Jewish — the Son of Perdition, the Man of Destruction — but he will be Jewish and the Jews will rally to him, will worship him, and sadly, the evangelical Zionists in America will also fall for this man.”

This is infuriating on multiple levels, starting with the way Wiles assumes he knows what every Jew wants, as far as spirituality is concerned. Since most American Jews are secular, I highly doubt they are “searching for a king.” They aren’t putting much thought into the messiah at all.

Did Wiles ever get to know any Jews personally before deciding to make the, a scapegoat for everything? Or is it easier to hate the idea of Jewish people, as projected by the Christian Right, because it fits nicely within their existing persecution narrative?

I think we all know the answer.

By the way, that video is from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, because Wiles received a press pass from the White House to attend. This Republican administration has no problem rewarding anti-Semitism as long as people like Wiles keep supporting Trump.
