I guess if you aren't a Christian, then maybe you see no reason for the US to support Israel. If you are a Christian, then you know how important it is not to side against Israel, because doing so is also siding against God and declaring yourself to be His enemy. Pretty simple, actually.

That is a form of bullying by Christians same as the jihadists bully everyone of all other faiths.. Christians forget that in the Bible Moses told his people to destroy and take over "their land" from those already there, to kill every man, woman and child. Evangelicals forget that for thousands of years Jews have remianed in their faith; they don't convert any more than extreme Muslims do.

TC,

Time for you to go the whole hog, so to speak, and become a Noahide and be done with it.

I had to laugh at your comments.

* Jews in this country are always lecturing us to separate Church and State

* Israel is arguably the most secular country on the planet.

But you are invoking God so Christians will support Israel.

I don't follow the heresy known as the Scofield Reference Bible or any other dispensationalist nonsense.

As a Christian, I try to read and UNDERSTAND the Bible. When the Bible talks about supporting Israel, it talks about the Jewish people -- not a political entity.

Only a fool would say that the Bible demands that US policy be set by a bunch of sleazy politicians in Jerusalem.

Corbett, only the great IOWAHAWK has a response for your post ... "a nugget of stupidity so egregious that no amount of mockery will suffice"!

True Contard,

When it comes to stupidity you have few peers.

I admit, I couldn't possibly keep up with YOU ... in stupidity, that is!

If last week's hearing for Chuck Hagel raised questions about his capacity to be secretary of defense, the show trial conducted by his inquisitors on the tribunal raised questions about the GOP.

Is the Republican Party, as currently constituted, even capable of conducting a foreign policy befitting a world power? Or has it learned nothing and forgotten nothing since George W. Bush went home and the nation rejected John McCain for Barack Obama?

Consider the great foreign issues on the front burner today.

Will the Japan-China clash over islets in the South China Sea, now involving warplanes and warships...
