The Armageddon Lobby

Dispensationalist Christian Zionism and the Shaping of US Policy Towards Israel-Palestine

Abstract
This article investigates the history of contemporary Christian Zionism in the United States and the impact of this movement on US policy issues related to Israel-Palestine. Dispensationalist Christian Zionists, often described the 'Armageddon lobby', make up the largest voting bloc in the Republican Party and have become a mainstay in US politics. More recently, the Christian Zionist lobby has had a profoundly damaging impact on the Israeli-Palestinian 'peace process' as well as creating a conspiracy of silence regarding Israeli offensives in the occupied Palestinian territories. Though the 'Armageddon lobby' has been successful in its efforts as a pro-Israel lobby, its influence is in fact counterproductive to Israel because the lobby hinders the prospect of Israel living in peace because of their policy of deterring the progression of negotiations.

1. Introduction to Christian Zionism

Out of concern I share this important article, concern that is all.

Update: 11/7/06 On this day, this issue is of up-most importance. Especially if you are religious, the importance to me is privacy, intrusion into personal issues by government where it don't need to be what ever your button this pushes it. The religious rights march into the politics of government have moved us away from our republic that upholds our democracy. Theocracy Watch is a good place to start, you hear the crap on the news how hypocritical these folks can be, just find out how cynical they can also be, it is a conspiracy I tell you. Steve Weissman has written another informative issue of articles that covers the works of these revisionist, Dispensationalist have accomplished over the years. And other links here to 'The Family', the political training grounds targeting community governments, grassroots. These articles I site are close to my view, if you take the time to read.

I live and work in Israel. I only read the Abstract above and stopped when I got to the statement "the lobby hinders the prospect of Israel living in peace because of their policy of deterring the progression of negotiations."

I share you view that christians, muslims, and other pagan occultists should leave Israel alone. We are not a racist intolerant culture like the Muslims. I would be killed very quickly if I tried to go into a Muslim dominated place. I can't even move about freely in Jerusalem. And every time I'm at the mall, I look around and wonder if one of the Muslims is about to cry "Allah Hu Akbar" and murder a couple dozen of us.

You really have a twisted view about us, not that different from the twisted view that christians and muslims have. Except that for some strange reason you're on the side of the muslims. I hope they come to your community and give you a dose of their culture.

First the article expresses the writers opinion, not mine. As I said I only posted this article with concern. I hope that peace comes to your community, and a very large dose of wonder mints to freshen your breath if not your mind, by reading more. Please if you haven't read the article why comment on something you have not read?
