It is not new that “Christians United for Israel” (CUFI) demands U.S. support for Israeli policies. Today, an email was sent out to supporters from John Hagee and David Brog asking those supporters to advocate keeping the focus on Israel during the 2012 Presidential election season. Not only a focus on Israel, but the “candidate whom we believe will most strongly support our ally Israel.”

“The Presidential election is around the corner. As we head to the polls, the weak economy and our mounting debt will no doubt be on all of our minds. But we must make sure that neither we nor our families forget another important issue. We must remember to vote for the candidate whom we believe will most strongly support our ally Israel.”

The Christian Zionist conviction of America’s need to politically support the State of Israel comes from their interpretation of Genesis 12:3: “I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you.” A promise spoken to Abraham translated by Christian pro-Israeli groups and Christian Zionists that if the United States does not support Israel the U.S will be cursed as a nation. So vote carefully.

Most Irish Americans, French Americans, Italian Americans, German Americans, etc. realize that it would be a political disaster to push Ireland, France, Italy or Germany to the front and center of ugly and divisive controversies in American domestic politics. But the American Jewish establishment, renowned for its political acumen and wisdom, seems to be providing maximum encouragement to Christian Zionists in their efforts to organize the American political system entirely around the Israeli interest.
