#1 ...I should mention here that several of these friends are Jewish. It would thus be a mistake to assume that all Jews blindly support Israel's expansionist land grab and its oppression of the Paleostinian people....
The Jews, living on THEIR land constitutes a "land grab" and oppression? That's why Israel has walls and defensive protection systems, because they are oppressing the rockets and missiles being fired at them.
In conclusion: F#CK YOU, you useful idiot.

#4 The Porter-Novelli Approach
In today's global and socially networked world, step change is increasingly not an option and profoundly new solutions are often required. In our world, yesterday's basement blogger is today's citizen journalist and a mere observer in a crowd now becomes an engaged and influential participant. Technology is not the only cause of these shifts, but it has turbo-charged our industry. Everything we do at Porter Novelli is designed to achieve one goal: to transform the opinions, beliefs and behaviors of those who matter most to our clients. We make this happen through a consistent and systematic approach that pairs a deep, data-driven understanding of what makes people think and act the way they do with sophisticated metrics that enable us to identify, monitor, manage and engage the most influential audiences.

Ick. At least Saul Alinsky was upfront about what he was up to.

#7 Much of the support for Israel and the Zionist movement in the US, for example, comes not from Jews but from Christian Evangelists. They believe that the End of Days will come when the Jews have reclaimed the Promised Land pledged to them by God. The Chosen will then ascend to Heaven.
How real is this or is it just another left-wing canard?

#9 Thanks Besoeker. I'm aware of the Great Tribulation. What I'm curious about is the influence of the Tribulators on US policy.

#10 IMHO - most Americans hold Israel in high esteem because of their similar cultural mores, David against the Arab Goliaths, general assholish behavior of their neighbors, and the only democratic state in the region. Not the End Of Days thing

#11 most of the evangelical community that I interact with favor Israel (modern country0 because it is a reflection of the inheritance we have as Christians. I am yet to hear any proclamations about support of the modern country outside of a call to the promises of the OT... I base this on a sample of roughly 75 evangelists whom I have personally heard speak.
many have talked on the subject of the role of Israel and the tribulation, but in the cases i have witnessed, that was a teaching of prophesy; not a call to support Israel to hurry the second coming.

#12 No Mo Euro. ALL the nations will officially be against Israel. All Christians, along with the Holy Spirit will cease to exist on the earth. Islamic nations all around Israel will launch an attack on Israel, only to be wiped out by Nuclear explosions and a resulting earth quake.
A man will make peace to the world. A false prophet will support him from Rome. The Jewish temple will be approved to be rebuilt on the spot where the Dome of the Rock is destroyed in the Islamic conflict. After the first 3 1/2 years the world ruler will have his image placed in the Jewish temple to be worshipped and sacrifices will be orderred to be stopped. He will now be god of the world. The religious leader from Rome will support that. No one can buy or sell without a mark by number or his name on their skin as worshippers of him or they will be killed. Resistance to that will be a constant conflict even to the final vicious battle at Armageddan that could end all known human life on earth, thus the return of Christ to establish His Kingdom at the end of the 7 year tribulation.
