This is a 12 minute video featuring Yossi Gurwitz, a Jewish guy providing serious insights into the growing threat from Zionist extremism. It should ring alarm bells, particularly for Evangelical Christians and non-Jewish supporters of Zionist Israel.

People focus on the Religious extremism of the DUP, the basically imaginary Religious extremism of Iona and the Legion of Mary ( I have heard both being compared to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood), and of course plenty of people believe that kharijite flavoured Hanbali Sunni Islam is the only real interpretation of Islam and any Muslim who thinks differently obviously does not know his or her Religion- however Jewish Religious extremism is overwhelmingly seen as a taboo subject that only ever, especially in it's Religious Zionist as opposed to Haredi forms, gets discussed by "Counter-Semites" and "Post Zionists", both not exactly mainstream though obviously the latter are much more mainstream than the former. I am not sure if this is exactly true however a friend of mine has claimed that the more powerful, successful, etc Jews become the more "particularist" and the less "universalist" they become, there was certainly a trend from the 19 th century onwards within Rabbinic Judaism to greater "Universalism" which definitely from 1967 onwards has been increasingly reversed, and has been totally reversed in so far as Orthodox Judaism in Palestine is concerned.

Secular Zionism has run out of steam having failed to create the "New Hebrew", Western culture having taken a nose dive in the 1960s no longer has the pull it once had, so it is not suprising that Religious Zionism has grown in strength and influence. The thing is that the colonial project relies on money coming in from the US tax payer- and this fact more than anything else gets in the way of the growing desire for a "Torah State".

The money is one aspect but the bonkers thing for me is the way fundamentalist Christians believe it's prophecy that a third temple is built in Israel, then Lucifer gets control of the world, so Jesus can return to save them. It's bizarre in the extreme and seems like moderate Christian's need to help them out somehow.

The term "Fundamentalist" is a vague one. It used to mean rejection of the "Documentary Hypothesis"/"Higher Biblical Criticism" now it seems to mean whatever people want it mean almost. Wrapped with "Christian Zionism" is very often a belief in the "rapture" in which Christians will supposedly be all whisked away and not have to go through the troubles of the end of the End Times and in the "Prosperity Gospel" in it's cruder forms. The whole thing though about "forcing the End", the idea that humans of their own agency play a vital role in bringing about the end of the Aeon which is found in not just "Christian Zionism" and Rabbinic Jewish Religious Zionism but also in Salafi Jihadism seems to be very much a product of modernity, and actually runs counter to the majority of traditional Protestant Christianity, Rabbinic Judaism and Sunni Islam.

"Christian Zionism" is dying out though of it's accord as it becomes increasingly clear that the United States has not been "Blessed" for it's support of "Israel".

Tricky concepts are often expressed in vague terms but Fundamentalist was intended to mean Christians with extreme beliefs generally.

I hadn't noticed indications of Christian Zionism dying out, maybe the scorpion has reached the other side of the river, so they've served their purpose.

We might want to find and ally with other creatures, faster than and deadly to scorpions, that can be carried on the backs of more frog's.

Israel is the American evangelical version of the Pope. If the US government ever became too restrained in its execution of the chosen people's interests I would expect an American Guy Fawkes to burrow from somewhere in the midwest to directly under the Capitol Building.

Uh do you want to explain Archbishop Hanna's views on martyrdom operations? He is probably the best loved Christian Cleric in Palestine. Christian Monasteries and Churches regularly face attacks of course by Jews and a large slab of the Jewish population believe that Churches though not necessarily Mosques should be knocked down- which after all is the Halakah.
