Huckabee: Evangelicals more supportive of Israel than Jews?
Mike Huckabee, a longtime Christian Zionist wrapping up a trip to Israel, tells CBN that he was struck by firmer support for Israel — as he sees it — from American Christians than from American Jews.
“One of the things I find most interesting is that generally Evangelicals are so much more supportive of Israel than the American Jewish community,” Huckabee, an ordained Baptist minister, said.
Supportive of Israel, even if they don’t ever play a role in The Rapture? I wonder.
“…There’s great division within the American Jewish Community about the level of support for Israel,” he went on.
No, there isn’t in the least. If Israel were seriously attacked, as if its existence were seriously threatened, Jews by the tens of thousands would stream out of America to take up arms and fight. Mike Huckabee sure as hell wouldn’t. The odds of any of Mike’s passionate Evangelicals doing the same would be slightly above zero (because of the rabid, incorrigible whackos that certainly would).
“I think they all support Israel, want to see it succeed. But you’ll find people all over the board about whether they think ii ought to have … absolute control over its border and whether they should give up land for peace and just how many countries can oversee Jerusalem at one time.”
First, Israel’s already succeeded, it’s not going anywhere, so enough of the apocalyptic rhetoric. Second, this is the nature of fully vested reality, or ‘ownership’.
Your son comes home and complains about a group of bullies who have been beating him up at school. Drunken Uncle Mike, of course, comes in and tells the boy to go back tomorrow and beat everyone of them up, no surrender. “I just love the boy so much, my level of support for him is absolutely through the roof. He oughta beat ’em all senseless–good for him!”
“I don’t find that kind of dichotomy generally within the Evangelical community,” Huckabee said. “It’s pretty adamant: There ought to be one city. It ought to be a Jewish state. And it ought to be secure. So maybe one of the hard things is to convince some of our Jewish friends that Evangelicals are the best friends they’ve got — because I think generally, that’s the case.”
Toma and sons, the 100 year-old family business, is struggling. We could partner with a larger company to survive, but then the business name will change, and control will be given up. Drunken Uncle Mike comes in: “FUCK ‘EM. Who do they think they are, telling you how to run your company? You don’t need anybody in the world, your company is the BEST. You’re the best. That’s just the way I feel. Incidentally nobody supports you the way I do…”
‘Speaking to a small group of foreign reporters in Jerusalem, Huckabee said the international community should consider establishing a Palestinian state some place else.
“The question is should the Palestinians have a place to call their own? Yes, I have no problem with that. Should it be in the middle of the Jewish homeland? That’s what I think has to be honestly assessed as virtually unrealistic.”‘
