Right-wing podcasters say Israel should hand over control to Christians: ‘It’s where Christianity was born’

During a recent livestream, far-right and QAnon-boosting broadcasters Edward Szall and Lauren Witzke gave their opinions on how to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: just hand the region over to Christians.

Witzke said that is American is going to be sending aid to the Middle East, she wants to know “what’s in it for us?”

“I’ve had my eye on the Holy Land, Jerusalem,” she said. “And I’m just saying, why do Christians not have a right to that land?”

“We do,” Szall replied. “I think that if we’re gonna start picking claims, I do think that Christians should control where Christianity came out of. I’d love to have control of the area where our Lord and Savior was crucified. … Maybe the citizens of Israel should be very careful with the exercise of a religious claim to the land because there may be others who have a religious claim to the land.”

“I mean, that’s where Christianity was born,” Witzke replied.
