The End of Evangelical Support for Israel?

Prophecy Sign:  Marginalization of the Jewish State

There has always been world hatred towards the Jewish people and nation.  Subsequent to the Holocaust, the Jews were accorded a respite from much of this evil, but we are once again seeing signs of this ancient hatred increasing in the hearts of mankind and within the nations.  This marginalization of the Jewish state is even growing within evangelical Christendom who were once considered the strongest supporters of the Jews and Israel.

You have made us a byword among the nations; the peoples shake their heads at us. Psalm 44:14 NIV

The End of Evangelical Support for Israel?
A mere decade ago, Christian Zionism was seen as an emerging force in American politics. As if out of nowhere, a block of fifty to one hundred million friends of Israel were poised to enter the national debate and safeguard the U.S.-Israel relationship for generations to come. Evangelical love for Israel appeared so solid that the only debate within the Jewish community was whether or not to "accept" it. How quickly things change. The days of taking evangelical support for Israel for granted are over. As they are increasingly confronted with an evangelical-friendly, anti-Israel narrative, more and more of these Christians are turning against the Jewish state.

Israel Guilty of 'Apartheid', Says Falk in Final Report
The United Nations’ “human rights expert”, Richard Falk, is accusing Israel of carrying out policies which “amount to apartheid” in Judea, Samaria and Gaza, Reuters reported on Monday. The news agency presented excerpts from Falk’s final report to the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) before he steps down serving the maximum term of six years as a UN expert. The UN Watch NGO reported last week that in the same report, Falk accuses Israel of “inhuman acts" and calls on the world body to support a “legitimacy war” against the Jewish state. According to Reuters, Falk accuses Israel of a “systematic oppression of the Palestinian people and de facto expropriation of their land”.

New Video Reveals 'The Truth About the UN'
Former Deputy Foreign Minister and Ambassador to the US Danny Ayalon has appeared in a new video entitled "The truth about the UN (United Nations)." In the video, Ayalon reveals the structural flaws that have turned the international body into a critic and enemy of the Jewish state. In the clip, Ayalon notes that 85% of the resolutions passed by the UN in 2013 were against Israel, despite the atrocities being committed by numerous regimes such as Syria and North Korea, and despite Israel being the only stable democracy in the Middle East.
