Ted Cruz explains what really happened when he was booed by Hezbollah supporters at Mideast Christian Gala

Ted Cruz was interviewed by Warren Cole Smith about the boos he got a few weeks ago at a conference on defending Middle Eastern Christians. Indeed, Cruz said those boos were loud and angry and came from about 20% of the crowd. And it all started when he mentioned Christians having no greater friend that Israel.

He said that his office thought about canceling the speech when a news report came out that suggested there would be supporters of Hezbollah at the conference. But Cruz said he didn’t feel that was the right thing to do.

Instead, if he was to share a stage with terrorist sympathizers, he was going to loudly proclaim his support for Israel and the Jewish people. And that he did.
