Avi Hartuv, spokesman for Israel’s tourism minister: "We can’t accept this kind of statement. We will not do business with him."
Business? What sort of business?
Apparently, Rev Pat had plans to open $50 million theme park in the Galilee. Now, thanks to the good minister's intemperate statement Jesusland is in jeopardy:
"The contract is still open - just not with Mr Robertson. If there are other Christian leaders, they are most welcome to sign a contract to bring Christian tourists to the State of Israel.Or as God Himself might say the next time he confers with Pat, "The Galilee is mine and any two-bit pastor who thinks he can build a New Testament Disneyland there had better think twice."
