So the Christian right in the USA (and other countries) are strong supporters of Israel. But how many Israelis understand the motivation behind that support?
Many of these fundamentalists believe literally in the Armageddon when in the Last Days of Tribulation, Jews will be offered the chance to convert to Christianity and accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah. If they refuse, they will be annihilated. A prerequisite for this is the ingathering of all Jews into Israel to facilitate this outcome.
What could be more anti-Semitic? In the past, American Christian fundamentalists were vehemently anti-Jewish. They haven't really changed their spots and I wonder how many Jews and Israelis realise this?
