But aren't you . . . ?

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

Submitted by Rebekah (United States), Aug 18, 2009 at 08:46

I'm a young Christian Zionist, and so far I've twice had to correct people who have made the assumption, based on my sentiments, that I must be Jewish. (Of course, in the second case, the assumption was also partially based on my anglicized Hebrew first name.) Anyway, sometimes the obvious does need to be stated, and, as I look around, it seems that maybe the number of gentiles in the American "Zionist community" is beginning to surpass, or at least is becoming equal to, the number of Jews. Since Jeremiah Wright changed the object of his disapproval from "them Jews" to "them Zionists," I guess I must be partially responsible for keeping Obama away from him.
