Christian Zionists have their heads on straighter than a lot of Jews

While we Jews continue to be our own worst enemy, the Christian Zionists are in many cases doing a better job of supporting us than the Israeli government. Here's one example:
The erosion of the Christian Zionist base began in June 2002 when President Bush (the first president ever to suggest this) announced as policy “a two-state solution” to be implemented by the “Road Map to Peace.” This “Roadmap” is an extension of the Madrid, Oslo and Wye accords and is now seen in benchmarks Israel will have to meet to make the “Roadmap” work. All of these have been colossal failures for one simple reason: the Arabs and Palestinians do not want peace; they want the total annihilation of Israel.

Incredibly, the Bush administration continues to require Israel to contribute to its own demise by giving up more land. The appeasement card continues to be played by both an oil-entangled US administration that insists on pandering to the Arabs and by desperate, liberal, anti-Zionist Israeli leaders. The only people who can possibly profit from the delusion of land for peace are the terrorists. Both Israelis and Palestinians are the losers.

Meanwhile most of Israel’s enemies, including Iran’s President Ahmadinijad and the terrorist groups he supports in Gaza and Lebanon, have maintained the same attitude they had at the Khartoum Conference in 1967. [Actually, Iran under the Shah was friendly with Israel and was not present at Khartoum. CiJ] Following their humiliating defeat in the 1967 “Six Day War,” — Arab leaders pleged to have “No peace with Israel, No recognition of Israel, and, No negotiations with Israel.”

On the other hand, the strength of the Christian Zionist base is that its support of Israel and the Jewish people does not depend on the acceptance or rejection of the Jewish community at large, be it Rabbinic or secular or from institutional or denominational Christianity. Nor is it determined by what may be the compromising winds of in-vogue politics in Israel or America. At the same time, Christian Zionist’s believe it is important to expose the revisionist history and the fiction perpetuated by Arabs and Palestinians regarding their claims to land bequeathed by Divine decree to the Jews.

The Christian Zionist position is nonnegotiable or open to compromise because it is based on the Bible — the unchanging Word of the living God. The covenants and promises God has made to the Jews are inviolable and as valid today as the day they were given; “On that day God made a covenant with Abram and said, ‘To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates. …I will establish my covenant as an everlasting covenant between me and you and your descendants after you for the generations to come, to be your God and the God of your descendants.’” (Genesis 15:18; 17:7).
When was the last time you heard a Jew argue that we have a God-given right to the land of Israel? Yes, I know, there are those who hold that we have abdicated that right until Messiah comes, but that is a minority view today. What's wrong with stating that God gave us this land. Look at the first comment of Rashi in Genesis 1:1. Why shouldn't we make that argument today?

These people are better friends of Jewish Israel than 90% of most American Jews, yet the liberal dominated Jewish media and organizations vilify them. Meanwhile those same libs ally themselves with liberal pro-divestiture churches and black anti-semites.
