My Christian upbringing makes me a Christian Zionist !

Reader comment on item: "Jewish" - Not the Same as "Pro-Israel"

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Aug 17, 2009 at 23:31

The Christian Bible clearly says that we as Christians must defend and support the Jews and Israel.

How a Jew can not fully back Israel seems unreal. Yes it is nice that Jews care about the muslims living in gaza and/or the west bank. However Israel has bent over back wards to try to help the muslims living in Israel, and each time has been kicked in the teeth. I am not sure what the non-zionist Jews want or expect Israel to do. Even as close as two and a half years ago, Israel gave full control of gaza over to the muslims, this kindness was repaid by the muslims by them firing rockets into Israel.

Israel will only survive if there are enough good people giving full support. Not fair weather friends and sunshine patriots.

Being supportive of Israel is a Christian requirement, . . . is it not a Jewish one also ?

P.S. There are some people in the Christian community who like Jews and Israel, ... but then they say that the Jews must change and take Christ as their God or they will not be allowed into Heaven. This is wrong, Jews have kept the covenant with God. Therefore they will get into Heaven. Also I believe that all good people will go to Heaven , no matter their religion or even if they have no religion. Good people go Heaven the evil go to Hell, simple as that.
