Hagee and his group, Christians United for Israel, joined keynote speaker Benjamin Netanyahu, the leader of Israel's hard-line opposition Likud Party, at a rally in support of Jerusalem remaining united and under Jewish control.

I always find this kind of thing more than a little troubling.

Such public support is nothing new, but to compare the palestinians to the taliban is sure to anger people and perhaps cause escalations in the "dispute"

Hardliners will point to this as "proof" that they are right.

Palestinians will use it as "proof" that they are victimized.

Really, the only thing this can do is create more militants - and we don't need any more of THOSE!
