United States churches are secretly run by Jews who converted to Christianity with the intention of controlling religious Americans including President Bush, a top Hamas official claims.

“Even the churches where the Americans pray are led by Jews who were converted to Christianity, but they were converted to keep controlling the Americans,” Mohammad Abu Tir, the number two Hamas terrorist in the newly formed Palestinian Authority government said during an exclusive interview from his home yesterday with top radio host Rusty Humphries and WND Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein.

“I made a study and I know very well that all this radicalism in some parts of the Christianity, [including] the Anglicans who are being led by Bush, is because of the control of Zionists,” said Abu Tir.

The Hamas official, famous for his orange-dyed beard, went on to accuse “Zionists” of controlling Western media organizations and “leading terrorism inside the mass communications media.”

Abu Tir was elected to the number two spot in the PA in January’s legislative ballots in which Hamas won by a large margin. He spent nearly 25 years in Israeli prisons for directing terror activities, including the attempted poisoning in the early 1990s of Israel’s water supplies.

His comments will be broadcast tonight on Humphries national program, “The Rusty Humphries Show,” which is live from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. Eastern and featured on more than 230 radio stations nationwide, including WDBO in Orlando, WCBM in Baltimore, KSFO in San Francisco, KOKC in Oklahoma City, WNIS in Norfolk, KHBZ in Honolulu and KVI in Seattle.

Tonight’s show also will focus on Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s plan to withdraw from most of the West Bank and will include clips from Humphries’ tour yesterday of major West Bank Jewish communities. Humphries also will air an exclusive interview he conducted today about the West Bank with former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres.

Humphries and Klein earlier this week conducted an exclusive interview with the gun-toting senior leadership of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in Bethlehem. The Brigades has been accused of leading the persecution of Bethlehem’s local Christian population, which drastically declined after the PA took control of the city in 1995.

Humphries this week is scheduled to broadcast from various hotspots in Israel and will conduct exclusive interviews with regional leaders and newsmakers.

Humphries has been named one of America’s 100 Most Important Radio Talk Show Hosts six years in a row by Talkers Magazine, was nominated as Talk Radio Personality of the Year by Radio and Records and was inducted into the Nevada Broadcasters Hall of Fame as its youngest inductee ever.
