Israelnationalnews.com, 8 April 2016: Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday spoke before Orthodox Jews in Brooklyn shortly after baking Passover matzah, in a pledge of support for the Jewish community and a call for votes ahead of the New York caucus. "Sometimes people ask why did this Texas Cuban Southern Baptist become one of the leading defenders of Israel in the Senate? And I think a lot of it has to do with being the son of an immigrant who fled Cuba, who was imprisoned, who was tortured," he said, relating with his largely Russian Jewish audience. Noting on Hamas rocket attacks against Israel, he said, "let me say this as an American, God bless Prime Minister (Binyamin) Netanyahu, a voice of clarity in a time of confusion, in a time of foolishness, in a time when the United States is sending $100 billion to the Ayatollah Khamenei."
By what logic can a self-proclaimed baptist claim that a man who denies that Jesus is the Savior remains, nevertheless, a voice of clarity in a time of confusion?
