The deeply and viciously anti-Semitic Rick Wiles, also a big Trump supporter of course, says that God is using the coronavirus to get revenge on Jews for not accepting Jesus as the messiah. Never mind that the overwhelming majority of those who contract the virus are not Jewish.
Wiles, who is deeply anti-Semitic and dedicates many of his TruNews programs to railing against Israel and Jews yet still regularly receives White House press credentials, seized on reports that synagogues in Israel would be closing in an effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus. And even though Christian churches in America have likewise been hot spots of coronavirus outbreaks, Wiles aimed his warning squarely at Jews.“Stay out of those things,” Wiles said of the synagogues. “There’s a plague in them. God’s dealing with false religions. God’s dealing with those who oppose his son, Jesus Christ. He’s dealing with the forces of Antichrist. There is a plague moving upon the Earth right now, and the people that are going into the synagogues are coming out with the virus.”
“It’s spreading in Israel through the synagogues,” Wiles continued. “God is spreading it in your synagogues! You are under judgment because you oppose his son, Jesus Christ. That is why you have a plague in your synagogues. Repent and believe on the name of Jesus Christ, and the plague will stop.”
Christian churches all over the country, indeed all over the world, have also stopped holding services in person. Many have replaced them with streaming services. And given that Jews are such a small percentage of the population, if God is using the virus to punish them, he has really bad aim.
