Many evangelical Christians, probably most, are avid supporters of the Jewish State. But not all of them. There is a growing number of megachurch pastors and opinion shapers - like singing artists, professors and publishers - who are adopting and promoting an anti-Israel "Christian" narrative. It is a movement that is aimed at millennials with growing success. Why? Jim Fletcher explains.
Van Zile's new book exposes a devastating reality: Christian anti-Semitism has returned. Today it is an entrenched narrative in mainline Protestant churches. During the second world war, Van Zile writes, "respectable Christians marched two-thirds of Europe’s Jews and millions of other victims to their deaths." The preaching and teaching that justified such conduct has returned to synods, pulpits and Sunday Schools in the United States of America.

Every year, there is a myriad of overseas visitors to Israel and the Palestinian Authority (PA) who, at any given point in the year, take part in some organized program of subtle anti-Israel political indoctrination.
My own observations and calculations lead me to believe the total number of these tourists reaches into the tens of thousands and is likely to be growing.
