Evangelicalism Need Not Interfere in Israeli Politics - Care About Netanyahu Notwithstanding

Reader comment on item: Bibi, Thank You for Your Service

There is enough confusion in Israeli politics without having a religious diversion attempt to sway a divided population into yet another misunderstanding of the 'signs of the times;' participants of 'evangelical' Christian persuasion need to be very careful not to fall into the trap of attempted influencing in Israeli political leadership. The confusion in the Israeli leadership is Scriptural (read Yeremiah about the shepherds) and understand the issue of chastisement in the Jewish community has specific direction and reprimands towards those who lead the Children of Israel astray.
It must be remembered that while Christianity emerged from Judaic roots, it does not replace the Nation of Israel; neither is interference in the process of returning Israel to its Kingdom state going to be tolerated.
