ISRAEL desperately need friends

I am a member of what Jews and mainline Christian denominations would call the Evangelical Christian Right. From the Jewish point of view, there is a huge distrust of Christians in general because of a long history of anti-Semitism in Europe. I have just read from MICHAEL H. STEINHARDT writing for the Jerusalem Post, that the Jews of Israel particularly mistrust Evangelicals. The reason being, Evangelicals support Israel based on eschatological belief systems with Jewish Temple building, Biblical Jewish borders, Jesus Christ as the returning Messiah to submerge Judaism into Christianity and a bit of intolerance on social issues from abortion to prayer in schools and so on.

Steinhardt makes the point that Jews need to get over it. Why? Evangelicals and Jews have one common agreement: The Land Israel needs to continue existence as a nation in perpetuity.
