    Hardly. He remains just an obnoxious little twink, though now he has the scars to prove it.

    "Christian unity" seems to be more and more of an oxymoron lately.

    "When I first read the story, I shook my head at Cruz’s naiveté. Rightly or wrongly, Israeli policy towards Palestine is a sore point for many Mideast Christians, not a few of whom are Palestinians. Some Christians have been forced by circumstance to reach accommodations with Assad in Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon, two foes of Israel. And, although Israel does not persecute Christians—it would be obtuse to suggest it does—many Christians in Israel feel that they are not particularly welcome, either. There are repeated reports of kids defacing churches and harassing Christian processions in the Old City of Jerusalem, for example. It would be convenient to blame these incidents on Islamists, but the perpetrators typically turn out to be students from ultraconservative yeshivas. And there are complaints that the government is quietly trying to push Christians out by denying building permits, professional licenses, etc. William Dalrymple’s classic book about Mideast Christians, From the Holy Mountain, details these complaints."

    Ted Cruz is nothing more than an obnoxious bully who is completely oblivious to the nuances of the issues.

    A good valid point about Ted Cruz. He is just out for his own self aggrandizement and he will swing every which way to further his own political career and agendas.
