Look who’s in bed with the Christian Right
The Christian right’s view of Israel derives largely from a double-edged theological position. Following a classic anti-Jewish stance, it regards the Jewish people as spiritually blind for rejecting Jesus. Yet it says that divine promises to Jews – to bless those who bless them, to return them to their land – remain intact. Indeed, it regards Israel’s existence as proof that biblical prophecies are coming true – heralding an apocalypse in which Jews will either die or accept Jesus.
