title : Ted Cruz Defends Backing From IHOP Mike Bickle, Who Said 'Hitler Was Hunter Sent by God'
summary : Despite public pressure, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz isn't distancing himself from the endorsement of International House of Prayer director Mike Bickle, an Evangelical pastor who characterized military dictator Adolf Hitler as "a hunter sent by God to go after Jews who don't to convert to Christianity." Although Jewish groups are asking Cruz campaign managers to denounce Bickle's interpretation of scripture, a senior advisor to Cruz, Nick Muzin, welcomed Bickle's support in a statement published Thursday (Feb. 11) in the Jewish Journal.
