Christian Zionists

Robert Gard writes: I was shocked to read a few months ago that there are 19 million Christian Zionists in the US. They believe greater Israel, including the West Bank and more, is fulfilling the prophesies to prepare for the second coming. No wonder Bush rejected decades of US policy by stating that Israel need not evacuate the West Bank, even though the Geneva Conventions, to which the US and Israel are parties, proscribe colonization of territory conquered by military force.

RH: There are many US Protestants who believe in the inerrancy of the Bible.  Therefore they accept that God gave the Jews the land from the Nile to the Euphrates. That section of the Old Testament has done untold harm.  This fits into our "Learning history" project.
