The growing friendship of evangelicals and Jews

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Israelis, like Jews in America, were at first suspicious of evangelicals, and worried lest they exploit the guaranteed right of worship — remarkable in the Middle East, where a Christian or Jew could lose his head for public worship — to try to make Christians of Israelis. Suspicion has largely withered. “America stands with Israel,” Mr. Pence told the Knesset, “because it supports good over evil,” and described the Jewish state as the promised land that, “as it grows, reaches closer to heaven.” That kind of talk is music to the ears of the believers, Christians and Jews alike.
