During the course of the interview, about 32 minutes and 38 seconds in, Jeremy Gimpel stated, among many other things,

"But right now here in Israel we're going through so many different, you know, tough times, physically, spiritually, and the one obstacle that's, I believe, stopping the Jewish and Christian World uniting together against our enemy, which is the Islamic World[. . . .]"Jeremy Gimpel, "Christian Zionist Leader Pastor John Hagee", Light Unto The Nations, IsraelNationalRadio.com, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/122150, approximately 32 minutes and 38 seconds into the audio file, (July 2006/17 April 2007).

At another point in the interview, at about 38 minutes, 46 seconds in, Jeremy Gimpel stated,

"We need to see these enemies of Israel as enemies of God[. . . .]"Jeremy Gimpel, "Christian Zionist Leader Pastor John Hagee", Light Unto The Nations, IsraelNationalRadio.com, http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/122150, approximately 38 minutes and 46 seconds into the audio file, (July 2006/17 April 2007).

Hagee, a highly influential man, asserts that he will pressure American politicians to favor Israel. Hagee did not directly address Gimpel's statements quoted above.

We ought ask John Hagee to state for the record whether or not he believes that the Christian World and the Jewish World are enemies of the Islamic World. We should ask Hagee to state for the record whether or not he believes that the Jewish World and the Christian World ought to unite against the Islamic World. Furthermore, we should question Hagee as to whether or not he believes Israel's enemies are enemies of God.
