Old news, my friend. There are a gazillion Christians, and only a few million Jews. And the Christians are not interested in Jews for the Jews sake. Unfortunately, one can not always pick your allies.Frijoles
Did you know that American Evangelical Zionists far outnumber Jewish ones? Around 70 million evangelicals - 80% of whom are pro-Israel vs around 14 million Jews on earth.
Just saw this HBO doc on the subject. It said they send most of their money and support (significant$$) to West Bank Settlements, undermining US efforts for a 2-state solution.
As I'm sure you know, Jews need to control ALL of Israel in order for the Second Coming to take place - Armageddon. Hence, no 2-state will solution will work for these folks' purpose.
Unfortunately 2/3 of Jews will die when this happens.
Kind of reminds me of fattening the lambs for the slaughter.
Guessing you're not impressed when hear of support from the Evangelicals.
I had heard some of this before but never had it all spelled out for in a 14 minute doc. No biblical scholar here. Same old same old.
As an American, I never have been comfortable with the Christians religious rights support of Israel, as it comes with strings attached. The strings I refer to is the implicit recognition of the Christian right by the Israelis, which in my opinion, indirectly undermines the American domestic values I support. Kind the the flip of your observation that the Right undermines American international policy.
But that all said, there is so much negative misinformation floating around about Israeli policy and society, with public opinion at times so much against the country, that when someone steps up to the plate, it is almost insane to tell them to go away.
Also, there is enough Arab and Muslim wealth, that if the Arabs and Muslims wanted to really solve the problem, they could create a Palestinian state over night with their financial support. Obviously they dont want to solve the problem, and would rather use the Palestinians as pawns.
