If this were based on rationality, it would be one thing, but it isn’t. The Republican Party is the party of Christian fundamentalism and the force behind Christian passion for Israel can be found in their Bible. Eighty-two percent of white evangelicals believe Israel was given to the Jews by God. Among Jews, only 40 percent find a divine hand behind a Jewish Israel. The largest concentration of Evangelicals in the World can be found in the United States, with 26.8% of the U.S. population or 94.38 million. Nearly half of the Republican Party are highly motivated religious zealots. The Democrats less so at 19%
Many evangelicals firmly believe biblical prophecy that Israel’s existence is necessary to set the stage for the return of Jesus Christ. In other words and as insane as this is, Israel has to die for The Christian Dream to come alive! Some alliance.
