If this poll is accurate, the hand-wringing among the anti-Israel set is going to increase exponentially.
A new survey conducted by a Washington DC-based evangelical organization among American Christians has found that 82% of them believe they have a moral obligation to support the Jews and Israel. The poll, conducted among Catholics and Protestants alike, tested their stance on Jerusalem’s future and ways to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat.
See, it’s not just Evangelicals. And gee, the U.S. majority religion, let me think, what is it, hm…. oh, that’s right! Christianity!
CAIR is going to blow a gasket over this one.
The subjects were asked whether they thought a country created in the West bank and Gaza would be democratic and peaceful, or a terrorist state. Thirty-two percent thought it would become a terrorist state, 24% thought it would be democratic and peaceful, and 44% said they didn’t know. Fifty percent said they believed Jerusalem should remain unified, 17% supported dividing it between two states, and 33% remained undecided.
And the Iranian mullahs are going to have a fit, too.
According to the poll, 65% of American Christians are convinced that Iran is developing nuclear weapons, which its leaders will attempt to use in order to destroy Israel. A similar percentage said that the US presidential candidates’ Middle East stance would constitute a major factor in their vote for president in August, in contrast to 13%, who said that the issue would not affect their vote.
Obama will be worrying too, but hey, he’s already discounted those hicks that “cling to religion” out of bitterness and frustration.
And how refreshing it is to have Jews and Christians on the same side of an issue for a change. Here. Have a virtual handshake, folks.
