Matthew Boyle reports at Breitbart.com:
Reports surfaced Wednesday night that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was "booed off the stage" at an event hosted by a purportedly Christian organization.
Cruz, the keynote speaker at the new "In Defense Of Christians" [IDC] organization's dinner in Washington DC, had offered the crowd -- a number of whom were Christians from the Middle East, including Palestinian Christians -- public support for Israel.
After doing so, some members of the crowd booed at Cruz, and they persisted until he left the stage, noting their hatred and saying he can't stand with them if they don't stand with Israel.
"Tonight’s injection of politics when the focus should have been on unity and faith, momentarily played into the hands of a few who do not adhere to IDC’s principles. They were made no longer welcome," said IDC President Toufic Baaklini in a press release published after the "disruption at the IDC Gala Dinner."
