A marriage made in hell

Israel may need friends, but perhaps this group is best avoided:

"A leading US evangelist is forming an umbrella organization under which all pro-Israel Christians in America can speak as one in support of the Jewish state."

They see themselves "as a Christian version of AIPAC [the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.] The group plans to "interact with the government in Washington" and persuade it "to stop pressuring Israel to give up land for peace. Besides the fact that this does not work, Israel has a Bible mandate for the land. Now that Gaza has been given to Hamas, it has a military foothold a thousand yards from Jerusalem."

Marrying Christian Zionism and other Zionists is a recipe for future disaster. Different goals, different ambitions and different religions. And who is truly using whom?

The chosen people must inhabit Israel before Jesus can return.

The good news for Jews is that they will be given an opportunity to convert to Christianity just prior to being sent to hell.

Why the hell would Zionists want to befriend these lunatics?

Momentary coherence of aims.

Nonetheless the alliance is at least theoretically dangerous for Israel. Fundamentalist Christians are notoriously unstable in their "clear and obvious" interpretations of scripture. In the blink of a decade you can have "obviously black" turned into "obviously white" - the mission of 'helping the Israelites' can be replaced with 'casting aside the Israelites' in order to bring about The Rapture (etc.) just as quickly. It probably wouldn't matter ordinarily, but since the Fundies have shown they do have real political clout, it must surely be something that Israel should keep 'on file'.
