The extent to which American support for Israel is driven by these violent Christian extremists should not be underestimated. They are a major force in US politics.
The extraordinary thing is that violent religious extremists in both the US and Israel look forward to fighting side by side against the forces of evil (Islam) in the Last Battle in the Middle East, yet extremist Jews and extremist Christians each also believe that at the climax, when the world ends, their cherished allies will go to Hell with their enemies.
It is of course the American Christians who are the most destructive violent religious extremists in the world.
The Christian Broadcasting Networking recently aired a piece whereby they stated that the increasing isolation of Israel reflects biblical prophecy.
Following the murders of nine unarmed civilian peace keepers on board the MV Mavi Marmara by Israeli elite commando’s, the Rabbinical Council of Judea and Samaria issued a statement saying the aftermath seemed to:
“place us at the beginning of the Gog and Magog process where the world is against us, but which ends with the third and final redemption.”
Gog and Magog is a biblical reference found in chapters 38 and 39 of the book of Ezekiel when a coalition of nations attacks the land of Israel.
The current discourse lays the blame solely at Islam and Muslims for being the wide eyed wacko’s – yet the architect’s of the root cause of the problems in the Middle East get a free pass.
Are we allowed to question the extremist Jewish/Zionist Christian axis, or are Muslims and Islam the only ones to be constantly demonised and put into the spotlight as extremists and radicals?
