So then primarily secular Jews are responsible for the terms of our relationship with the Zionist leadership in Israel?

Same as, say, Sheldon Adelson?

Your transparent anti-Semetism is going to be difficult to implement with all of these seculars

I suppose it’s gotten to be such an ingrained habit with you evangelical Thumpers that the distinction is no more than a nit.

Going to be tough for the prophecy of conversion to play out when so few will have anything concrete to convert from.

Yes, a matter that has long concerned me- US and Israeli interests are not always the same.

 

But US Jews are actually pretty equivocal on the current regime and thus the Likud has pivoted to the more numerous and dependable dupes who've been fed a false Christian narrative regarding Israel.

 

The current political leader of criticism of the Likud is Bernie Sanders who closely resembles the secular socialist Jews who founded that nation. Sadly, they were overtaken by opportunists using religion, a point in fact that will go unheeded among those driving the US in the same direction.

I don't know if the above was a reply to my original post.  If it was you are conflating my concern that members of our congress have dual citizenship in ANY country.  Loyalty should be singularly to the USA and having dual citizenship destroys that.  

 

If you believe me to be an evangelical you're pretty far off base there too.  And you might have noticed my previous post showing the breadth of Jewish contributions to the world.

United States does not recognize dual citizenship but doesn’t do anything about. However many other countries force a decision by age 18 or 21.
