CHRISTIAN RADIO HOST GAGGED
EVANGELIST DALE CROWLEY TOLD:
“YOU CAN’T TALK ABOUT THAT”
The unAmerican thought police operating on American soil have struck once again. This time their victim is veteran Christian evangelist Dale Crowley, Jr. who has been the host of two popular radio programs broadcast over WFAX 1220-AM radio in the Washington area for the last 20 years.
Crowley was told by the president and general manager of WFAX, that his Saturday morning broadcast, “Focus on Israel,” was terminated immediately. He was not even given an opportunity to bid farewell to his longtime listeners.
The program was canceled by the WFAX management because supporters of Israel had complained to the radio station about Crowley’s criticisms of Israel.
Over the years Crowley has been critical of Israel. He has dared to broadcast facts about efforts by the Israeli government to curtail the work of Christian missionaries in the Holy Land, even to the extent, as Crowley has pointed out, of laws introduced in the Israeli parliament that would penalize Christians who engage in missionary work among the Israelis, requiring that those convicted of evangelism be sent to jail.
In addition, Crowley has used his WFAX broadcast to tell
Christians in the Washington area of how the Israelis have oppressed Christian Palestinians, uprooting them from their homes, vandalized Christian churches in the Holy Land, and otherwise made life difficult for Christian Palestinians and other Christian Arabs in the Middle East.
Crowley has upset many supporters of Israel by pointing out that under the thinking of such Christian supporters of Israel as Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Tim LaHaye, a New York-born Jewish atheist has more right to live in the holy city of Jerusalem than a Palestinian Christian minister whose family has lived there for 1,000 years.
