Hagee: Why Christian Zionists Really Support Israel

Why Christian Zionists Really Support Israel 

By Pastor John C. Hagee,  founder and chairman of Christians United for Israel.


 Given the history of Christian antisemitism, I am not at all surprised that many in the Jewish community are skeptical of Christian support for Israel. Some worry that our efforts are motivated by a desire to convert Jews. Others posit that our Zionism is tied to an effort to speed the second coming of Jesus. Both of these allegations are flat wrong. All we ask of our Jewish friends is that they get to know us before they judge us harshly on the basis of myths such as these. ...  Another concern that some individuals have expressed is that Christian Zionists will use our influence to stand in the way of efforts to advance a two-state solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict. Such a claim shows a complete disregard for our record. ... We have never, and will never, oppose Israeli efforts to advance peace.
