A GREAT Piece Documenting the Pervasive PRO-ZIONIST Thread in American Political Thought

A GREAT Piece Documenting the Pervasive PRO-ZIONIST Thread in American Political Thought

As an admittedly Pro-Zionist, Evangelical Christian American, I have generally (and incorrectly) believed that the Pro-Zionist thread in American politics had its genesis in the 1960s or 1970s.

Well, today I fortuitously happened upon a VERY informative piece in the Opinion Journal by Michael B. Oren on the history of Zionist-friendly thought in American political history.

While Oren writes his piece largely to rebut Jimmy Carter’s latest (vomitous) literary endeavor, he does a great service to all by reminding us that a favorable view of Jewish control of Israel is something that predates (by a long shot) the late radio preacher J. Vernon McGee (d. 1988).

In fact, as Oren aptly traces out, pro-Zionist pronouncements can be traced back – not only to Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin – but also to our current President’s Bible scholar forebear of the same name (George Bush) in 1844.

All of which makes this lgf post all the more troubling.  

Has the current President TRULY cut of all arms shipments to Israel?

If so, he is sorely misguided and equally sorely needs to throw his hapless SECSTATE, Condhimmi Rice, overboard, poste haste.
