La récente manifestation du "syndrome de Jérusalem" de Trump met en évidence, avant tout, la puissance des sionistes chrétiens, évangéliques ou autre, aux États-Unis


Preuve de plus que le phénomène Trump dépend en grande partie de l'appui du sionisme chrétien --- millénariste, messianique, dominioniste -- aux États-Unis. (Et pas seulement de l'Alt-Right à la Breitbart-Jerusalem ou des "théoriciens du complot" à la Infowars.)

L'ancien propagandiste de Trump, Steve Bannon a qualifié le déménagement de l'ambassade américaine à Jérusalem de "cadeau à la droite religieuse". En conférence devant la Zionist Organisation of America (ZOA), Bannon se disait fier d'être "sioniste chrétien", glorifiant le "judéo-christianisme" comme fondement civilisationnel de l'Occident. Et c'est uniquement pour son rejet du "judéo-christianisme" que Bannon se voit obligé d'écarter la pensée d'Ayn Rand, qu'il juge excellente par ailleurs.

Mais les intérêts du sionisme chrétien aux États-Unis ne coïncident pas complètement avec les intérêts israéliens (comme l'ont montré notamment Daniel MERMET et plusieurs autres), même avec ceux de la droite ultra israélienne qui s'est pourtant alliée à lui sous la présidence de Reagan sans cesser de resserer les liens. Même si Israel a longtemps souhaité un Trump, il reste qu'Israel préfèrerait encore ne plus avoir à dépendre des États-Unis... (Voir à ce sujet le memorandum du précédent gouvernement Netanyahou, écrit par les néocons, intitulé A Clean Break, 1996.)

Dans un autre ordre d'idées, on peut aussi se demander si, en quelque sorte, le comportement brouillon et chien-fou de Trump n'est pas une manière très subtile et rusée de sauver les apparences, de faire croire à tous qu'on est le plus pro-Israel qui soit, tout en faisant échouer en même temps volontairement ce qu'il entreprend, en l'entreprenant trop vite, à la hâte et n'importe comment, de manière à provoquer assurément la controverse et que le tollé vienne tout faire rater en fin de compte. Car il n'est pas dit qu'Israel obtiendra la pleine et totale souveraineté sur sa capitale Jérusalem... Si Israel a pour capitale reconnue Jérusalem, cette reconnaissance ne constitue pas en même temps la reconnaissance d'une totale souveraineté israélienne sur tous les quartiers de Jérusalem...

Comment les sionistes chrétiens ont obtenu leur homme à la Maison-Blanche
http://www.france-palestine.org/Comment-les-sionistes-chretiens-ont-obtenu-leur-homme-a-la-Maison-Blanche

Grâce au positionnement de Mike Pence et d’autres comme lui à la Maison-Blanche, les sionistes chrétiens sont parvenus à atteindre un degré d’influence incroyable sur la nation la plus puissante au monde.

Le 18 juillet 2017, le vice-président américain Mike Pence a prononcé le discours d’ouverture du sommet annuel de Christians United for Israel (CUFI). Fondé en 2006 par le pasteur John Hagee, un évangéliste de San Antonio, CUFI affirme être le plus grand groupe pro-israélien des États-Unis, avec trois millions de membres. Hagee a appuyé la candidature de Donald Trump à la présidence en mai 2016.

Pence a encore une fois promis que l’administration Trump transférerait l’ambassade américaine à Jérusalem, cette fois-ci devant des partisans chrétiens d’Israël de plus en plus rétifs face à l’incapacité de Trump à tenir sa promesse de campagne pour Israël – signe de ce que certains analystes ont considéré comme un nouveau revirement idéologique du côté de la Maison-Blanche.

Le revirement idéologique de la Maison-Blanche

« Le discours de Pence marque un changement fondamental dans le langage historiquement employé par la Maison-Blanche pour articuler la relation entre les États-Unis et Israël », a écrit Dan Hummel, chercheur à la Harvard Kennedy School, dans le Washington Post.

Ce changement fondamental s’effectue en faveur du sionisme chrétien, une idéologie qui fonde son soutien politique pour Israël sur la conviction que l’État moderne d’Israël est une manifestation de prophéties inscrites dans la Bible – et que le sort même des États-Unis est prophétiquement lié à Israël.

Hummel décrit Pence comme un « fervent sioniste chrétien » qui exprime son soutien pour Israël en des termes explicitement prophétiques. Son apparition au sommet « est le signe d’une nouvelle ère d’influence des sionistes chrétiens à la Maison-Blanche ».

Pence n’est pas seul dans ses efforts déployés pour convaincre Trump de réaliser ce que les sionistes chrétiens considèrent comme une prophétie biblique. Mike Huckabee, ancien gouverneur de l’Arkansas, sa fille Sara Huckabee Sanders, désormais attachée de presse de la Maison-Blanche, ainsi que Sarah Palin exercent une grande influence dans l’administration Trump et sont de fervents sionistes chrétiens.

Roy Moore, que Trump a appuyé à l’occasion des élections sénatoriales en Alabama, fait partie du troupeau.

L’Armageddon des sionistes chrétiens

Les sionistes chrétiens, qui comptent environ 20 millions de représentants aux États-Unis, ont versé des millions de dollars au cours des dernières décennies dans leur quête d’un Israël élargi. Ils ont parrainé la migration de milliers de juifs en provenance de Russie, d’Éthiopie et d’autres pays.

Ils contribuent à hauteur de plusieurs millions de dollars à la construction de nouvelles colonies dans les régions palestiniennes occupées afin d’y accueillir les migrants. « Le transfert à Jérusalem prouve que notre président tient parole », a déclaré Hagee.

Il a également tenu d’autres propos moins lucides : « Remettre Jérusalem aux Palestiniens reviendrait à remettre la ville aux talibans. » Il a également affirmé que le peuple juif brûlerait en enfer pour l’éternité à moins qu’il n’abandonne le judaïsme et ne se convertisse au christianisme après la bataille d’Armageddon.

C’est ce que croit John Hagee, et vraisemblablement ce que croient les trois millions d’adeptes au sein de CUFI qui font partie des 40 millions de membres du mouvement évangélique, ou du moins partiellement.

Jérusalem, le 4 octobre 2012 (MEE/Ryan Rodrick Beiler)

Il reste alors la spéculation la plus effrayante, selon laquelle le président en personne pourrait également partager certaines convictions avec Hagee, ou ne serait-ce qu’une seule d’entre elles. L’obsession de Trump pour l’islam a peut-être été partiellement façonnée par les considérations antimusulmanes de l’ancien chef de CUFI, le pasteur Jerry Falwell, aujourd’hui décédé.

Fini l’intermédiaire honnête

Le 6 décembre dernier, Trump a explicitement nié tout espoir encore persistant de parvenir à une solution à deux États. « Après plus de deux décennies de dérogations, nous ne sommes pas du tout plus proches d’un accord de paix durable entre Israël et les Palestiniens. Ce serait une folie de supposer qu’en répétant exactement la même formule, nous obtiendrions aujourd’hui un résultat différent ou meilleur. C’est la raison pour laquelle j’ai décidé que le moment est venu de reconnaître officiellement Jérusalem comme capitale d’Israël », a-t-il déclaré.

La reconnaissance de Jérusalem en tant qu’unique capitale d’Israël est beaucoup plus que symbolique. En effet, cela revient à nier l’obligation la plus fondamentale du processus de paix, à savoir une solution à deux États.

Le président de l’Autorité palestinienne Mahmoud Abbas l’a reconnu lui-même. Les Palestiniens sont désormais convaincus que les États-Unis ne pourront jamais être un intermédiaire honnête ou un modérateur neutre – bien que les États-Unis n’aient jamais vraiment été un modérateur impartial.

L’influence politique énorme exercée par Israël aux États-Unis a rendu impossible toute interaction honnête et cette duplicité est aujourd’hui flagrante. Lors d’un sommet international qui s’est tenu le mois dernier, Abbas a déclaré que les États-Unis étaient inaptes à arbitrer le conflit au Moyen-Orient, marquant un revirement politique majeur après des décennies passées à courtiser la bienveillance américaine.

Le 21 décembre, l’Assemblée générale des Nations unies a statué en faveur de la condamnation de la décision de Trump sur Jérusalem. Presque tous les États membres de l’ONU l’ont condamnée en dépit des menaces brandies par Trump de mettre fin aux financements américains pour les États qui s’opposeraient à sa décision sur Jérusalem.Abbas a annoncé ce revirement, qui est intervenu en réponse à la déclaration de Trump sur Jérusalem, lors d’un sommet des dirigeants musulmans qui a condamné l’initiative américaine et appelé à la reconnaissance mondiale d’un État palestinien avec Jérusalem-Est comme capitale.

Cela nous amène à un arrêt brutal du processus de paix suite aux efforts fructueux fournis par Jared Kushner, gendre et conseiller de haut rang de Trump, pour exiger des Palestiniens qu’ils acceptent de capituler totalement face aux exigences d’Israël. Jared Kushner et sa famille ont contribué à hauteur de plusieurs millions de dollars aux efforts israéliens de colonisation en Cisjordanie.

L’issue de ses efforts, à savoir refuser aux Palestiniens tout remède à leurs doléances, n’aurait jamais dû être mise en doute dès lors que Trump lui avait accordé une autorité absolue.

Le retour du Messie

Un problème critique pour les sionistes purs et durs et leurs alliés chrétiens est représenté par l’emplacement des ruines des premier et second Temples juifs, situés sous la mosquée al-Aqsa, le troisième site le plus sacré de l’islam. Un principe fondamental de la théorie sioniste chrétienne veut qu’un nouveau temple soit construit sur ces ruines antiques.

Les Palestiniens estiment que les fouilles archéologiques israéliennes effectuées sous le complexe de la mosquée al-Aqsa dans le but de construire un nouveau temple constituent une menace pour la mosquée. Les sionistes chrétiens soutiennent avec véhémence que cela doit être fait afin de réaliser la prophétie. Ils pensent qu’une fois la construction du nouveau temple achevée, le retour du Messie sera inévitable.
Le seul espoir pour les Palestiniens est une inclusion progressive de la population palestinienne de Cisjordanie et de Gaza dans ce qui deviendra une entité unique, Israël. Une issue très peu probable. Les Israéliens n’accepteront jamais d’accorder aux Palestiniens, musulmans comme chrétiens, la citoyenneté et le droit de vote dans ce que Netanyahou proclame désormais comme étant l’État juif.

Netanyahou a la conviction inébranlable et peut-être délirante qu’il a été choisi par Dieu pour diriger le peuple juif. « Le Premier ministre a une notion messianique de lui-même et se voit comme une personne appelée à sauver le peuple juif du nouvel Holocauste », a déclaré Eyal Arad, ancien haut conseiller politique.

Il ferait mieux de se dépêcher. Il est aujourd’hui visé par une quatrième enquête pour corruption et malversation depuis qu’il est en poste.

Pence est également convaincu de l’appel de Dieu. Son passage biblique préféré, qu’il cite souvent, est le suivant : « Car je connais les projets que j’ai formés sur vous, dit l’Éternel, projets de paix et non de malheur, afin de vous donner un avenir et de l’espérance. »

Pence se montre ambitieux au-delà de son manque apparent de références et de ses échecs politiques en tant que gouverneur de l’Indiana. Pence a « clairement fait comprendre » au Comité national républicain qu’il était prêt à prendre la place de Trump en tant que candidat du Parti républicain à la présidence suite à l’affaire de l’enregistrement de l’émission Access Hollywood en octobre 2016.

Un président véritablement évangélique ?

L’été dernier, le New York Times a rapporté que Pence semblait se préparer à briguer un mandat présidentiel. Pence a nié les faits avec véhémence. Pence a imaginé la possibilité réelle que le Parti républicain se retourne contre Trump après un autre scandale majeur, qui assurerait sa propre ascension.

Les États-Unis pourraient se retrouver avec un président véritablement évangélique. Ce qui est inquiétant, ce n’est pas que Pence croie en Dieu, mais qu’il semble certain que Dieu croit en lui.

Les érudits bibliques chrétiens traditionnels considèrent le texte biblique comme étant allégorique. Or, les sionistes chrétiens croient en une interprétation littérale du texte péniblement tortueux du livre de la Révélation.

Toutefois, le mouvement sioniste chrétien n’est pas un phénomène récent. Des efforts sont déployés depuis plus d’un siècle pour restaurer la gloire biblique largement illusoire d’Israël. Au XVIIe siècle, le roi Jacques Ier suggérait que « la fin des temps » aurait lieu en Palestine.

Comme les sionistes chrétiens aujourd’hui, il croyait que les tribus hébraïques devaient être réunies et revenir de la diaspora pour que la bataille finale entre les forces du mal et le Messie puisse avoir lieu à Armageddon.

Une nouvelle déclaration Balfour

Lord Balfour, ministre britannique des Affaires étrangères, et son Premier ministre, David Lloyd George faisaient tous deux preuve de sympathie à l’égard du sionisme chrétien. En 1917, trois ans avant que la Société des Nations n’ait confié à la Grande-Bretagne le mandat sur la Palestine, Balfour écrivait à Lord Rothschild, membre de la famille de banquiers juive immensément riche et partisan de la première heure du sionisme, que « le gouvernement de Sa Majesté envisage[ait] favorablement l’établissement en Palestine d’un foyer national pour le peuple juif et emploier[ait] tous ses efforts pour faciliter la réalisation de cet objectif ».

L’État d’Israël n’aurait peut-être pas vu le jour sans la déclaration Balfour. Lorsque les États-Unis ont reconnu Jérusalem comme capitale d’Israël, l’objectif était, du moins en partie, de convoquer le Messie et de commencer à préparer la bataille d’Armageddon.

C’est ce que croient les sionistes chrétiens et c’est ce qu’ils réclament sans relâche à l’administration. La Bible nous dit que Jésus reviendra pour tout réparer.

Les musulmans, les juifs, les bouddhistes, les hindous, les shintoïstes, les animistes, les vaudous, les catholiques, les agnostiques, les athées et tous les autres seront convertis aux légions sionistes chrétiennes du Seigneur. Le Messie Jésus-Christ triomphera et dénouera tous les maux qui nous touchent aujourd’hui. Il anéantira l’Antéchrist et sa horde barbare dont font partie les Russes, tandis que lui, Jésus, régnera en roi sur la terre pour mille ans de bonheur et d’abondance.

Mais ils croient tout d’abord qu’il faut rétablir l’Israël antique et le débarrasser des hérétiques de toute confession religieuse autre que la leur, afin de réaliser la prophétie biblique du retour du Christ sur terre.

L’Israël biblique

Cette seconde venue n’augure cependant rien de bon pour les Israéliens selon la liturgie chrétienne sioniste. Israël ne sera malheureusement plus. Israël sera détruit au cours de cette apocalypse.

Selon leur croyance, Jésus, affligé de constater que les juifs ne l’ont pas considéré comme le Messie, tuera tous les juifs qui refuseront de se convertir au christianisme, ou plus précisément au sionisme chrétien. Jésus n’est semble-t-il pas du genre à tendre l’autre joue quand on lui manque de respect.

Si vous croyez le contraire, si vous croyez que les prophéties bibliques telles qu’interprétées par les sionistes chrétiens relèvent de la folie, vous êtes dans la majorité impuissante. Grâce au positionnement de Mike Pence et d’autres comme lui à la Maison-Blanche, les sionistes chrétiens sont parvenus à atteindre un degré d’influence incroyable sur ce qui est peut-être la nation la plus puissante au monde.

Ils croient que seule l’Apocalypse purifiera le monde et que les États-Unis seront l’instrument qui engendrera la colère de Dieu. Les ressources importantes et la puissance militaire des États-Unis font partie du plan divin visant à nous amener l’Apocalypse.

Trump fera tout pour encourager la loyauté aveugle de ce troupeau dont il a hérité. Le Parti républicain repose fortement sur les sionistes chrétiens, à la fois pour leur argent et pour leurs suffrages. Ils ont un impact profond sur la direction du parti, même si le parti semble désormais plus théocratique que politique.

Les sionistes chrétiens sont fortement susceptibles de voter ; ils dépassent les vingt millions et sont de généreux contributeurs. Ils forment la base de cette nouvelle théocratie républicaine.

Ils ne veulent pas la paix avec les Palestiniens. Les Palestiniens n’ont pas leur place dans l’Israël biblique. Les sionistes chrétiens veulent les voir partir afin de purifier le Royaume naissant d’Israël et d’ouvrir la voie à leur éternité de bonheur au paradis.

How Christian Zionists got their man into the White House

The Christian Zionists managed, through the positioning of Mike Pence and fellow believers in the White House, an incredible measure of influence over the most powerful nation on earth

On 18 July, US Vice President Mike Pence delivered the keynote speech at the annual summit of Christians United for Israel (CUFI). Founded in 2006 by Pastor John Hagee, an evangelist from San Antonio, CUFI claims to be the largest pro-Israel group in the United States, with three million members. Hagee endorsed Donald Trump for president in May 2016.

Pence once again pledged that the Trump administration would move the US embassy to Jerusalem, this time to Christian supporters of Israel who have become increasingly restive at Trump's failure to make good on his campaign promise for Israel - signalling what some analysts viewed as a new ideological shift for the White House. 

White House's ideological shift

"Pence's speech marks a fundamental change in the language that the White House has historically employed to articulate the United States' relationship with Israel," Dan Hummel, a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School, wrote in the Washington Post.

That fundamental change is towards Christian Zionism, an ideology that bases its political support for Israel on the belief that the modern state of Israel is a manifestation of prophecies in the Bible - and that the very fate of the United States is prophetically linked with Israel.

Hummel describes Pence as an "ardent Christian Zionist" who expresses his support for Israel in explicitly prophetic terms. His appearance at the summit "signals a new era of Christian Zionist influence in the White House".

Pence is not alone in his efforts to convince Trump to fulfill what the Christian Zionists regard as a biblical prophecy. Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, his daughter Sara Huckabee Sanders, now the White House press secretary, and Sara Palin wield great influence in the Trump administration and are ardent Christian Zionists.

Roy Moore of Alabama, who Trump endorsed for the Senate election in Alabama, is numbered among the flock. 

Christian Zionists' Armageddon

Christian Zionists, who number about 20 million in the United States, have poured millions of dollars over the past decades seeking an expanded Israel. They have sponsored the migration of thousands of Jews from Russia, Ethiopia, and other countries.

They contribute millions toward the construction of new settlements in occupied Palestinian areas to accommodate the migrants. "Moving to Jerusalem proves that our president stands by his word," Hagee said.

He also said some other things less lucid: "turning Jerusalem over to the Palestinian's would be tantamount to turning it over to the Taliban". He also said that the Jewish people are going to burn in Hell for all of eternity unless they abandon Judaism and convert to Christianity following the battle of Armageddon.

That is some of what John Hagee believes, and presumably what three million followers in the CUFI and inclusive of the wider 40-million strong Evangelical movement believe, or at least partially believe.

There remains the most frightening speculation that some, or any, of what Hagee believes may also be believed by the president himself. Trump's obsession with Islam might have been partially informed by former head of CUFI late pastor Jerry Falwell's anti-Islam views.
Honest broker no more

On 6 December, Trump explicitly denied any lingering hope for a two-state solution. "After more than two decades of waivers, we are no closer to a lasting peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. Therefore, I have determined that it is time to officially recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. It would be folly to assume that repeating the exact same formula would now produce a different or better result," he said.

The recognition of Jerusalem as the sole capital of Israel is far more than symbolic. In effect it denies a most fundamental obligation of the peace process, a two-state solution.

President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority has acknowledged as much. The Palestinians are now convinced that the United States can never be an honest broker, or neutral moderator - although the United States has never been a truly dispassionate moderator.

The enormous political influence of Israel in the United States has made honest dealings impossible, and that duplicity is blatantly obvious now. Abbas told an international summit last month that the United States was unfit to mediate the Middle East conflict, marking a major policy shift after decades spent courting American goodwill.

Abbas announced the shift, which came in response to Trump's declaration on Jerusalem, at a summit of Muslim leaders that condemned the US move and called for world recognition of a Palestinian state with its capital in east Jerusalem.

On 21 December, the UN General Assembly voted to condemn Trump's Jerusalem decision. Nearly all of the member states of the United Nations condemned it despite his threats to deny member states who objected further funding.

That brings us to an abrupt close the peace process through the successful effort of Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor, to demand the Palestinians accept full capitulation to Israel's demands. The Kushner family and he have contributed millions to Israel's settlement efforts in the West Bank.

The outcome of his objective, to deny the Palestinian's any remedy for their grievances, should never have been in doubt once he was given absolute authority by Trump.

The return of the Messiah

A critical issue for hardline Zionists and their Christian allies is the location of the ruins of the first and second Jewish Temples beneath the al-Aqsa mosque compound, the third most revered site of Islam. A fundamental tenet of the Christian Zionist theory is that a new temple be built upon those ancient ruins.

Palestinians believe that Israeli archaeological diggings underneath the al-Aqsa mosque compound to build a new temple constitute a threat to the mosque. The Christian Zionists are vehement that this be done to fulfill prophecy. They believe that once construction of the new Temple is complete the return of the Messiah will be inevitable.

The only hope for the Palestinians is a gradual inclusion of the Palestinian population of the West Bank and Gaza into what will become a single entity, Israel. A most unlikely outcome. The Israelis will never acquiesce to allow either Palestinian Muslims or Christians citizenship, and voting rights, in what is now proclaimed by Netanyahu as the Jewish State.

Netanyahu is of the unshakable, perhaps delusional, conviction that he has been chosen by God to lead the Jewish people. Eyal Arad, a former top political advisor, said: "The prime minister has a messianic notion of himself, as a person called to save the Jewish people from the new Holocaust."

He had better hurry. He is now under his fourth investigation for corruption and malfeasance while in office.Pence is equally convinced of God's calling. His favourite biblical passage, which he quotes often is, "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Pence is ambitious beyond his seeming lack of credentials and his political failures as the governor of Indiana. Pence "made it clear" to the Republican National Committee that he was willing to take Trump's place as the GOP candidate for president in the aftermath of the Access Hollywood tape in October 2016.

A truly evangelical president?

Last summer, the New York Times reported that Pence appeared to be preparing for a presidential bid. Pence vehemently denied the story. Pence imagined the real possibility of the GOP turning on Trump after another major scandal ensuring Pence's subsequent rise.

The United States could end up with a truly evangelical president. What is worrying is not that Pence believes in God, but that he seems certain God believes in him.

Mainstream Christian Biblical scholars regard the Bible text as allegorical. The Christian Zionists believe in a literal interpretation of the tediously, torturous text of the book of Revelations.

The Christian Zionist movement however is not a recent phenomenon. There have been more than a century of efforts to restore Israel to a largely illusory biblical glory. In the 1600s King James I suggested that "the End of Days" would take place in Palestine.

He believed, as the Christian Zionists do now, that the Hebrew tribes must be reunited and return from diaspora so the final battle between the forces of evil and the messiah could take place at Armageddon.

Another Balfour declaration

Lord Balfour, British foreign secretary, and his prime minister, David Lloyd George, were both sympathetic to Christian Zionism. In 1917, three years before the League of Nations gave Britain the mandate over Palestine, Balfour wrote to Lord Rothschild, of the immensely wealthy Jewish banking family, and an early proponent of Zionism, that "His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object."

The State of Israel might not have come into being without the Balfour Declaration. When the United States recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital, we do so, at least in part, to summon the Messiah and begin preparation for the battle at Armageddon.

That is what the Christian Zionists believe, and have relentlessly demanded of the administration. The Bible tells us Jesus will be back to fix it all.

The Muslims, the Jews, the Buddhists, the Hindus, the Shintos, the Animists, the Voodooists, the Catholics, agnostics, and atheists, et al, will be converted to the Christian Zionists legions of the Lord. The Messiah, Jesus Christ, will prevail and undo all evil that now befalls us. He will annihilate the anti-Christ and his barbaric horde, that includes the Russians, and he, Jesus, will reign as king on earth for a thousand years of bliss and plenty.

But first they believe ancient Israel must be made whole and unencumbered by heretics of any religious persuasion, other than their own, in order to fulfill the biblical prophecy of Christ’s return to earth.

Biblical Israel

That second coming however does not bode well for the Israelis according to the Christian Zionist liturgy. Israel will sadly be no more. Israel will be destroyed during this apocalypse.

According to their belief, Jesus, distressed that the Jews did not regard him as the Messiah, will kill all the Jews who refuse to convert to Christianity, or more precisely Christian Zionism. Jesus, it seems, is not one to turn the other cheek when slighted.

If you believe otherwise, if you believe that Biblical prophesies as interpreted by the Christian Zionists are lunacy, you are in the helpless majority. Because the Christian Zionists managed, through the positioning of Mike Pence, and fellow believers, in the White House an incredible measure of influence over perhaps the most powerful nation on earth.

They believe that only the apocalypse will purify the world and the United States shall be the instrument which brings forth God's wrath. The great resources, the military might, of the United States is part of the divine plan to bring the Apocalypse upon us.

Trump will do all to encourage the blind loyalty of this inherited flock. The Republican Party leans heavily on the Christian Zionists for both cash, and votes. They have a profound effect on the direction of the party, even if the party now seems to be more Theocratic than political.

The Christian Zionists are most likely to vote; they number over twenty million, and are generous contributors. They are the base of this new Republican theocracy.

They do not want peace with the Palestinians. The Palestinians have no place in Biblical Israel. The Christian Zionists want them gone to purify the nascent Kingdom of Israel and allow their eternity of bliss in paradise.

Trump Has Handed The Israel Lobby To Evangelicals. That’s Terrifying.
 https://forward.com/opinion/392156/trump-has-handed-the-israel-lobby-to-evangelicals-thats-terrifying/
Vice President Mike Pence’s on again, off again visit to Israel is apparently on again for next week, but the actual timing was never the real thing. Pence and other deeply conservative white Christian evangelicals now driving American policy toward Israel and the Palestinians are playing a very long game that extends far beyond one news cycle.  
They are turning public support for Israel — which largely had been bipartisan and religiously pluralistic — into an effort propelled by members of one political party and one religious worldview.  
Their belief that Jews, and only Jews, must rule over Jerusalem to herald the return of Jesus Christ influenced President Trump’s decision last December to reverse nearly seven decades of American foreign policy and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Their absolute fealty toward Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and their antipathy toward the Palestinians are reflected in the itinerary for next week’s trip: Pence is not scheduled to meet with any Palestinian leader, the first time in decades for a top American official.  
Some may welcome the way that the Trump administration has tilted the scales toward Israel and its current hard-line government. But there is real reason to worry when foreign policy is in the grip of fundamentalist ideology, when political issues become biblical ones.  And this shift is not confined to America. The president of Guatemala, one of the few leaders to so far follow suit and recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, also relies on the support of his country’s influential Christian evangelical community.  
The American Israel Public Affairs Committee remains the largest, richest and dominant Israel lobby in Washington, and its “big tent” approach still defines support for Israel in Congress and beyond. AIPAC prides itself on being bipartisan, and its annual convention attracts scores and scores of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. While the number of yarmulke-wearing Orthodox Jews attending that convention has increased over the years, AIPAC still finds support in all Jewish religious denominations, and has actively courted other faith groups into its fold.  
But after Trump’s unlikely victory, AIPAC is now directly challenged by Christians United for Israel, an evangelical lobby with a more hard-line and partisan approach that aligns with those setting the agenda in the White House.  
AIPAC supports a two-state solution; CUFI does not. AIPAC was slow to endorse the Taylor Force Act to strip the Palestinian Authority of some funding; CUFI is in favor of defunding the P.A. entirely. AIPAC stayed largely on the sidelines in pushing for the Jerusalem decision; CUFI was out front.  
CUFI has strong personal ties to the White House now that Pence is hovering over Trump’s shoulder. Pence visited Israel with CUFI in 2014 and addressed its annual conference this year. The son of its chief Washington lobbyist is a senior Pence aide.  
“The vice president has been a lifelong friend to Israel,” The Rev. John Hagee, CUFI’s founder and chairman, told Politico after the Jerusalem decision was announced.  
In the same interview, Hagee said words that we’ve become accustomed to hearing from Orthodox Jews: “[F]or millions of evangelical voters, the president’s position on Israel was a central factor in their support for him in the 2016 election. I think over the past year, and of course in the past week, we’ve seen that our trust in President Trump was well placed.”  And, perhaps not coincidentally, Trump and CUFI share a major benefactor: the megadonor Sheldon Adelson, who publicly broke with AIPAC some years ago.  
These political shifts, expected when new administrations assume power and new parties ascend, are made more consequential because they are rooted in a fundamentalist religious doctrine. Whereas AIPAC embraces many strains of Jewish practice (or none at all) the white evangelical Christians who have Trump’s ear are absolutely certain of their faith-derived convictions.  
“This runs deep. It is a core value,” Richard Land told me in an interview. “I can’t imagine that Jewish people and Israelis can have a stronger ally than the evangelical Christians who believe as I do. Even if they attack us, we are going to turn the other cheek. There’s nothing we’re going to do that will stop us from being pro-Jewish and pro-Israeli.”  
Land is the president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, North Carolina, and formerly ran the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. “Evangelical Protestants, the majority of them, believe that God made certain promises to Israel and that those promises are still in force,” Land said. “That the Jews are still God’s chosen people. That he gave the land of Canaan to the Jews forever, in obedience and disobedience.”  
Since Land and others like him believe that Jesus Christ will only return as the Messiah when Jews reside in Canaan and rule over Jerusalem, the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 is considered a fulfillment of one aspect of biblical prophecy. Trump’s announcement on Jerusalem is another one.  
That’s because their faith is predicated on Jews playing a major role, though one that can make many of us uncomfortable.  
And while Americans of many faiths subscribe to the idea that Jews, Muslims and Christians pray essentially to the same God, evangelical Christians like Land do not. “The God of Islam is not the father of our lord savior,” he told me. “It’s a different God entirely. I see no resemblance between the God of Islam and the God of Christianity and Judaism. I don’t recognize the God of the Quran.”  
So while Jews have a starring role to play in this biblical drama, Muslims decidedly do not. And this isn’t just about what’s going to happen in the Middle East today. Land believes that the only way God will bless America is if America blesses the Jews. And America blesses the Jews by pursuing a foreign policy that ensures Jewish autonomy over all of ancient Israel, including Jerusalem. Including the Temple Mount.  
“The Jews being back in the land and being in control of the land is part of the fulfillment of biblical prophecy, “ Land insisted. “If we were, as a country, to thwart the Jewish people and their desires and their God-given right to occupy that land, then God would not bless us as a people.”  This explains how and why a segment of Americans of very deep faith can support not only Trump’s decision on Jerusalem, but also the many other ways Trump has singled out, demeaned and harmed Muslims. 
They are simply not blessed. We Jews are.  Policy that is shaped by religious belief has a place in the American public square. But when fervent religious belief is entwined with political power, when the resultant policy is perceived to be divinely ordained, it can become dangerous. It becomes impervious to compromise. It can flare into a holy war.  
Politics can make some very strange bedfellows. But before American Jews — Israelis, too — embrace this new alliance for what it may deliver temporarily, we should consider the long-term consequences. Evangelical support for Israel may be heartfelt, but in the end it is transactional. And ultimately Jews may pay the price.  Read more: https://forward.com/opinion/392156/trump-has-handed-the-israel-lobby-to-evangelicals-thats-terrifying/



For Mike Pence, Backing Israel’s Occupation Is a Matter of Faith
In Mike Pence’s eagerness to be the evangelicals’ messiah, he’s happy to boost the occupation, kill the idea of two states and bully the Palestinians, and frame it all as divinely ordained Zaha Hassan Jan 17, 2018 8:46 PM 
https://www.haaretz.com/opinion/.premium-for-pence-endorsing-israel-s-military-occupation-is-a-matter-of-faith-1.5744234
"Ahlan wa sahlan" is how Palestinians greet a guest. But these words of welcome will not be directed at Vice President Mike Pence, when he tours occupied Arab East Jerusalem’s holy sites next week. He is unwelcome.  The image of him standing adoringly by as President Donald Trump declared a rapidly expanding and amorphous Jerusalem the capital of Israel is still fresh on every Palestinian’s mind.  According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, between December 6th, the date of the recognition announcement, and December 31st, 2017, Israeli occupation forces killed 14 Palestinians and injured over 3,600 others, by gas inhalation, rubber-coated bullets and live fire. Those protests and demonstrations show no signs of abating. 
But where Pence stands has never been in doubt.  On the campaign trail, he marketed himself as a champion of the rights of Middle Eastern Christians in their struggle against violent extremism. At the same time, he appeared in ads aimed at U.S. citizens living in Israel and its illegal settlements, promising them that "Israel’s fight is our fight, Israel’s cause is our cause."
Where does that leave the Muslims and Christians of Palestine who since 1948 have been systematically driven from their homes and property?  
Is Israel’s fight to ethnically cleanse them from the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, also the Trump-Pence fight?  Is Israel’s cause - to confiscate their land – also the Trump-Pence cause?  Apparently, Israel’s brand of violent extremism is not only unproblematic to Mike Pence, it is divinely ordained.  
It would be unfair to credit the vice president with the seismic shift in U.S. foreign policy that came with Trump’s Jerusalem decision. Pence, however, like every good vice president who someday wants to be president, would very much like Trump’s dispensationalist-minded evangelical supporters to see him as their true lower-case messiah.  
The festive photo op orchestrated for the recognition announcement, in which Pence appears flanked by Christmas trees as the Holy City was taken off the negotiating table, was clearly meant to send just this message.

In reality, the timing of the Jerusalem recognition wasn’t the work of Pence and his warped understanding of the Bible. It was this-worldly, not other-worldly: Just good, old fashioned, throw-the-Palestinians-under-the-bus politics, sugared with religious symbols and references to biblical history to make it go down easier with the base.    
Keep in mind the timeline of political developments in the U.S. before the announcement. On December 1st, the special investigator on Russian interference with US elections, Robert Mueller, had just obtained a guilty plea from former Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn. In his plea, Flynn reportedly implicated Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner, head of Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts.  With impeachment and more indictments looming large over the president and his inner circle - described in detail in Michael Wolff’s tell-all book "Fire and Fury" - rallying right-wing media, evangelicals and powerful pro-Israel donors like Sheldon Adelson to the administration’s side became critically important.  
True, the president had been under some pressure to execute on his campaign promise to relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, but he had put off such a move in order to re-launch Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. With the Flynn plea, however, he could wait no longer. And who better to share the spotlight with him than Vice President Pence, the poster child of evangelicals who had been scheduled to travel to Israel to speak before the Knesset in December 2017?  But taking Jerusalem off the negotiating table and killing the two-state solution is not enough to satiate hungry Trump-Pence supporters and donors. The red meat of the day is now destroying Palestinians as a national group along with their history, claims and rights.
To do this, the administration intends to slash most of its $300 million per year in funding it provides UNRWA, the UN agency established to provide food, childhood education and basic health care to five million registered Palestinian refugees. But UNWRA only exists after almost seven decades because Israel has refused to allow the refugees to exercise their right to return home and to restore their properties to them.  
President Trump doesn’t seem to understand that Palestinian refugees and their legal rights cannot be made to disappear simply by defunding and destroying UNRWA. What will be achieved with this latest action is hundreds of thousands of impoverished families in the occupied Palestinian territories, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria will go hungry and half a million children will be out of school and will become susceptible and/or succumb to preventable diseases and treatable illnesses from a lack of health care.  
The fall out from this cruel and shortsighted action will not only be felt in countries hosting Palestinian refugees. It will be felt throughout the region and beyond.  So Vice President Pence will have to forgive Palestinian Christians and Muslims for not welcoming him into their homes and into their churches and mosques with the hospitality and warmth for which they are renowned. They’re a bit pre-occupied these days trying to survive, while resisting a military occupation that Pence, as a matter of faith, has whole-heartedly endorsed as his cause and fight.

With Bannon Banished From Trump World, pro-Israel Hard-liners Pin Their Hopes on Pence
https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/.premium-with-bannon-banished-pro-israel-hard-liners-pin-their-hopes-on-pence-1.5730092
Far-right U.S. Jewish Republicans believed the one-time Breitbart supremo had their back, but his fall from grace shifts their focus to the vice president and a very unlikely blast from the recent past
  Allison Kaplan Sommer Jan 16, 2018 3:19 PM
 Few American Jews shed tears at the downfall of Steve Bannon, whose humiliation was made complete Tuesday when he stepped down from Breitbart News following his ugly estrangement from President Donald Trump – confirmed by the insulting new nickname of Sloppy Steve.
The catalyst for his fate were his uncensored remarks in Michael Wolffs White House tell-all book, Fire and Fury, alienating Trump and then, fatally, the Mercers (Bannons arch-conservative financial backers who bankrolled both Breitbart and his endeavors to become a renegade Republican kingmaker.) 
The vast majority of Americas overwhelmingly liberal and Democratic Jews viewed Bannon as either an anti-Semite or an anti-Semite enabler whose conspiratorial references to demonic global financiers awakened and emboldened white supremacists. His oft-quoted description of Breitbart as the platform for the alt-right white nationalist movement confirmed such views. 
But for the minority of staunchly hard-line, pro-Israel Jews (and evangelical Christians) who support Israels settlement enterprise, oppose a Palestinian state and any form of territorial compromise, Bannon was an important force in the White House. 
For this group, his out-of-the-box positions on Israel far outweighed any threats the views of the Trump-voting, alt-right fan base from which he drew his influence might pose.
Notably, it was Morton Klein of the Zionist Organization of America – who invited Bannon to address his organizations annual gala last November – who was the sole loyalist quoted as willing to speak up for Bannon in a lengthy Politico piece on Sunday. Klein said: If there is anyone, like Bannon, who is a strong supporter of Israel and a strong fighter against anti-Semitism and that person ends up having less influence on the administration, that is something that would sadden me. 
In Fire and Fury, the extent to which Bannons position on Israel matched hard-liners like Klein was described in detail. The book not only revealed that Trumps then-strategic adviser planned to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Day One after entering the White House, but, moreover, had an extreme and highly unorthodox approach to solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: Let Jordan take the West Bank, let Egypt take Gaza, says Bannon in the book. Let them deal with it. Or sink trying. 
He then claimed that both GOP megadonor Sheldon Adelson and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu were all in on his plans. 
Taken as a whole, it is a depiction of an extreme right-wing cabal, one that could find its place on the right fringes of Likud, that has been guiding if not running [President Donald] Trumps Middle East policies, Haaretzs Chemi Shalev wrote. Shalev described it as an axis that dominated Trumps Middle East policies during his first year in office. It is an alliance that Netanyahu appears to have cultivated, with the assistance, or at the direction, of his Las Vegas benefactor, Adelson. All three operate under the premise ascribed to Bannon that the further right you were, the more correct you were on Israel. 
This hard-line trio of influence presumably acted as a counterweight against the more pragmatic former military men in the White House – most prominently National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, but also former Secretary of Homeland Security and current Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis – whom, along with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the far right privately scorn as Arabists who are soft on Israel. It was also a bulwark against Trumps fantasies of making the ultimate deal, which they believed were being cultivated by Bannons nemesis – Trumps son-in-law and aide, Jared Kushner. 
Bannons banishment from the White House, and now his political self-immolation and disappearance from Trumps circle of influence, comes as a deep disappointment to those who embraced and celebrated his outlook and that of satellite foreign policy Bannonites like Sebastian Gorka. 
Sad, tragic and disappointing, one pro-Trump Republican on the Jewish far right told me, asking not to be identified by name. Israels lost a really important voice. 
With that sadness comes concern over the increased influence of the generals, as well as Javanka (Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump), on Middle East policy. The Jewish Trump supporter said he believes the presidents son-in-law has got his head in a very dark place when it comes to this peace thing. I think Jared is really wrong on this whole peace plan and can only do damage, he noted. 
But the hard-liners are still hopeful, attributing their optimism that the Trump administration will avoid any Kushner-fueled peace attempts to three factors. 
First, and most prominently, their hopes are pinned on Vice President Mike Pence – who will visit Israel on January 22-23 – and the evangelical Christian base he represents. Rejecting the portrayal of a sidelined Pence in Wolffs book, they call him a powerful player, particularly on Israel.
Clear evidence for this, they argue, lies in the fact that last months declaration of recognizing Jerusalem as Israels capital and the plan for an embassy move came after Bannon left the White House. It was Pence and the evangelicals – not Adelson, Netanyahu and Bannon – who ultimately got something done, and they are the ones who will have Israels back in the post-Bannon era.  Secondly, there are the Palestinians themselves, who called the Jerusalem declaration a kiss of death to the two-state solution. 
Third, there is Trump himself. Much as the president is portrayed as an utterly transactional empty vessel, his Jewish supporters dont believe his views were artificially foisted on him by Bannon, but instead come from his own core beliefs. It was the president himself who wanted to move the embassy at the very beginning of his administration, they say, and it was Netanyahu himself who told Trump it would be better to wait.

Return of the Mooch?  
If there is now a vacuum in the conduit between the far-right Klein/Adelson crowd and the Trump White House, one figure is clearly eager to fill it. Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci is not only different from Bannon – as slick and public as Bannon is unkempt and secretive – but he is also Bannons nemesis.
Call it a coincidence, but on the same day Bannon departed from Breitbart, it was also announced that Scaramucci – who spent the day dancing on his grave – would be a keynote speaker at the annual meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas. The RJC confab is set for early February at Adelsons Venetian hotel and casino. In the past, ZOAs Klein has described Scaramucci as being supportive of Israel in the ZOA way, not in the mainstream Jewish way.  Scaramucci has made a point of cozying up to the Adelson-backed Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. It was at a Boteach Hanukkah party that Scaramucci reportedly took a verbal detour from recounting his trip to Israel to insult Bannon, allegedly calling the former Trump aide messianic and a loser, warning that Hell be a stalwart defender of Israel until hes not. Thats how this guy operates. Ive seen this guy operate. He was a stalwart defender of me until it became better for him not to be.  In the end, it was not his failure to defend Israel that proved to be Bannons undoing. It was his failure to defend Donald Trump.


Arab MK calls Pence ‘dangerous, messianic,’ will boycott his Knesset speech 
Head of the Joint List head also rails against Trump, brands him a 'political pyromaniac' and a racist woman-hater
https://www.timesofisrael.com/arab-mk-calls-pence-dangerous-messianic-will-boycott-his-knesset-speech/
By Alexander Fulbright    Today, 4:58 pm
Arab Israeli lawmakers will boycott Mike Pence’s speech to the Knesset, with the head of a coalition of Arab parties saying Saturday that the US vice president is “dangerous” and has a “messianic vision” that threatens the region.  
Pence landed in Egypt Saturday to kick off a Middle East trip that will also include stops in Jordan and Israel, after canceling a December visit due to the passage of US tax reform.
Ahead of his arrival, Joint (Arab) List leader Ayman Odeh said MKs in his party would not attend Pence’s Knesset speech due to US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.  
In a Twitter post Saturday, Odeh said his party would go through with an earlier promise to skip Pence’s address to the Knesset plenum.  
“[Pence] is a dangerous man with a messianic vision that includes the destruction of the entire region,” he also said.  
Odeh also attacked Trump, saying he was “even more dangerous” than Pence and a “political pyromaniac” and a “racist” woman-hater. He slammed the US president’s Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking efforts and said Trump “must not have a [political] road map for the region.” 
The Arab lawmaker said after Trump’s December 6 declaration that the US “has lost its place as the exclusive mediator of negotiations.” echoing Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has struck out strongly at the Trump administration since the announcement on Jerusalem.  
The Palestinians claim East Jerusalem, which Israel captured from Jordan in the 1967 Six Day War, as the capital of its future state. Trump stressed in his speech that recognizing the city as Israel’s capital was not meant to take a position its final boundaries, which he said should be decided in peace talks between the sides.  
In addition to being boycotted by Arab MKs, Pence is also being shunned by the PA and will not travel to Ramallah or meet with Palestinian leaders. The PA said it would not meet with any US officials regarding the peace process following Trump’s declaration on Jerusalem.
Pence’s visit to the region comes as Abbas has ramped up his criticism of Trump and his peacemaking efforts. In a speech Sunday, the PA leader called a peace plan being formulated by Trump the “slap of the century” and claimed Israel was a European “colonial project.”  
In response to Abbas’ refusal to engage in American-brokered peace talks, the US has frozen tens of millions of dollars in aid to the UN’s agency for Palestinian refugees, although the State Department said the second tranche of funds was being held up due to the need for “reform” at the organization.


Pence 'Dangerous and Messianic,' Dedicated to 'Destruction,' Israeli Arab Leader Says, Vowing to Boycott VP

The head of Israel's Arab coalition party has vowed to boycott the flash visit by U.S. Vice President Mike Pence, expected to arrive in Israel on Sunday evening.
"We were asked if there's a change in our position regarding Pence's visit," Joint Arab List chairman, lawmaker Ayman Odeh, wrote on Twitter. "He is a dangerous man with a messianic vision that includes the destruction of the entire region.
"He comes here as the emissary of a man who is even more dangerous," Odeh wrote in reference to U.S. President Trump, who he called a "a political pyromaniac, a racist misogynist who cannot be allowed to be lead the way in our region.
"The entire Joint List will boycott his speech in the plenum," Odeh wrote regarding Pence's planned speech on Monday in the Knesset.
Ahmed Tibi, another lawmaker from the party, said they were boycotting Pence because "Trump's speech on Jerusalem and Pence's own positions, as Pence is one of those pushing for the U.S. to relocate the embassy [to Jerusalem] and because of his outrageous claim that they have taken Jerusalem off the table. This administration is part of the problem, not the solution."
Pence embarked Saturday on a trip to the Middle East, despite a U.S. government shutdown. His spokeswoman explained that that Pence's meetings with Egypt, Jordan and Israel are "integral to America’s national security and diplomatic objectives." Pence was originally supposed to arrive to the area in December, but the White House delayed his visit by a month as a result of the vote in Congress over the Republican tax plan. Over the last few days, rumors circulated that his trip might again be delayed once again because of the internal political crisis in Washington that led to the government shutdown on Saturday, but the White House made it clear that the trip would not be postponed.
 Pence landed in Egypt on Saturday, and will then travel to Jordan. He is expected to arrive in Israel Sunday evening. He will then spend a day and a half in Israel, before flying back to the United States Tuesday afternoon. During his time in Israel, he will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin, visit the Western Wall and give a speech in front of the Knesset in Jerusalem.
The White House originally presented Pence's trip as focused on supporting Christian communities in the Middle East. The trip was supposed to include a stop in Bethlehem and a meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. However, following U.S. President Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the Palestinians declared that Pence, who played an important role in the policy change, is "not welcome" in Bethlehem.
As a result, Pence will not meet any Palestinians during his visit – and according to an official schedule released by the Israeli government, there are no meetings planned with Christian leaders. A number of Christian leaders in the Middle East, including in Egypt, declared that they will refuse to meet with Pence because of the Trump administration's "hostility" towards the Palestinians.
The schedule released by the Israeli government suggests that Pence's visit to the Western Wall, which is located beyond the 1967 lines and therefore is not recognized by the world as part of Israel, will take place without the presence of any Israeli political leaders, just like the visit Trump made to the holy site in May. Pence will be accompanied only by the rabbi in charge of the site, and the media arrangements will be handled by the American embassy in Israel, not the Israeli government press office.
