Reader comment on item: [Christian Zionism:] Israel's Best Weapon?

Submitted by Marvin Petal (United States), Jul 15, 2003 at 12:40

There is nothing sinister about Christians supporting a homeland for the Jews. But I find it downright alarming that the staunchest supporters of zionism are the conservatives such as Jerry Falwell, Newt Gingrich, Gary Bauer et al. who evidence vitriolic intolerance for any views that they themselves do not personally espouse. Personally, I feel very uneasy that the radical right is being cited as Israel's friends. If anything, this state of affairs may serve to alienate those of a more liberal bent who are more in step with the traditional Jewish philosophies of tolerance, democracy and fair play.
