  •  many Christian fundies support zionism (0+ / 0-)

    because  Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein has seduced them with access to the Knesset, in exchange for Christian zionist contributions of millions of dollars to Israel.

    Don't count on Foxman to criticize Hagee; Israel is on the winning end of this sick game; Americans are on the losing end.

    Christian Zionists gain Israel’s inner sanctum

    After raising more than two hundred million dollars for various projects in Israel, Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein and his organization, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ), which he founded and is president of, has hit pay dirt.

    In late December, the Jewish Agency for Israel, which helped found the State of Israel, announced that the IFCJ "will be declared a funding partner of the Jewish Agency . . . [and] Eckstein will . . . receive new voting powers that will include spots on the committees that oversee the agency’s budget and that meet with the prime minister and his Cabinet," the Jewish Daily Forward reported.

    The announcement indicates a major shift in agency policy. Nearly 10 years ago, the head of the Jewish Agency "refused to be photographed taking a check" from Eckstein. "Now, it has publicly, and apparently proudly, acknowledged that the IFCJ would be donating 45 million dollars to the agency over the next three years, almost all of it raised from evangelical Christians in North America," according to The Forward.

    "For the first time, Christians, who are mainly my constituency, will have a seat at the table," Eckstein told the Forward.
