Evangelicals and Israel

This chapter examines the charge that their inflexible stand against territorial concessions allies Christian Zionists with Jewish religious nationalists who embrace the concept of a Greater Israel. It notes Menachem Begin’s role in establishing Israel’s alliance with evangelicals and traces these ties prior to that time. It discusses Begin’s association with Jerry Falwell. The chapter examines the Christian Zionist belief that God will punish anyone who attempts to divide the Land of Israel and Pat Robertson’s claim that this accounted for Ariel Sharon’s disabling stroke. It goes on to consider Robertson’s relationship to the Jewish state. The chapter also discusses the pulsa denura, a kabbalistic curse on anyone who gives away part of the Land of Israel.

Keywords:   Menachem Begin, curse, Jerry Falwell, pulsa denura, Pat Robertson, Ariel Sharon, territorial concessions
