By semi-popular demand: I’m Curious to why any Jew (or the Israeli state!) Would Cozy up to Evangelical Christians.
I am still intensely curious about what it is that would make any Jew cozy up to Evangelical Christians whose only aim is to see them all betrayed by the Anti-Christ and then die horribly (except for the converted) so as to bring about the new Thousand Year Reign of Jesus…(hmm that sounds familiar from somewhere Reign=Reich?…naw getting too close to a Godwin?)
I have been there, I have been one of them, I was raised as one of them, Jews are misguided and ignorant fools who will not acknowledge that the messiah of their own prophecies has come and gone and they just misinterpreted their own scripture so badly that they were unable to recognize Jesus for what he was.
With the re-establishment of a Jewish state all we lack now is the rebuilding of the Temple to start the doomsday clock to Armageddon which these people actually hope and pray for almost daily. I know that idiots make all kinds of end of the world predictions and second coming of Jesus predictions all the time, don’t let that fool you.
The vast majority of fringe evangelicals in the United States are waiting with baited breath for the only thing that can satisfy the prophecies that they have been taught. The rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem. That starts the doomsdays clock, from there on everything (they think) can be predicted almost to the day, until the very final cataclysmic end of the world. (actually it supposedly can be predicted exactly to the day once Israel signs a protection treaty with the anti-Christ, but that is the subject for another post).
Why glad hand and pander to people whose only reason for supporting you is the secret hope of blissfully watching you die in agony later? The Christian Right will support Israel (and so will the Christian Left) right up to the point that Solomon’s temple is re-built after that you are on your effing own. We will sit here on our side of the ocean and watch and wait for the Anti-Christ to come bail you out, at least as long as the Christians have control of the government anyway.
These people do not support Israel, they want to see Israel destroyed, because that is all part of Gods plan…sigh.
I would hope that the Israelis actually understand all this, because they better — their lives may some day depend on it.
