    As U.S. Jews Cool To Israel, Evangelicals Flock There As Tourists

    August 25, 2019

    Sharon Litton of Shreveport, La., is baptized by immersion in the Jordan River, where Jesus is said to have been baptized. Such baptisms are a staple of evangelical tours of Israel.

    President Trump's evident desire to identify who's most "loyal" to Israel has a clear winner: U.S. evangelicals.
    Not only do they outpace U.S. Jews in their support for policies that favor the Israeli government, but U.S. evangelicals have also become the fastest-growing sector of the Israeli tourism market. The developments may even be related.
    "I'd say close to 100% of our travelers come back extremely pro-Israel in their political views," says Andy Cook, a pastor who leads evangelical tours of the Holy Land twice a year.
    Back to its roots
    Tourist travel to Israel is growing about 10% a year, according to Eyal Carlin, the incoming North America director of the Israeli Tourism Ministry, with evangelical Christians a growing share of U.S. visitors.
    "More and more companies are entering each year with faith-based or evangelical packages," Carlin says. "The evangelical world is going back to its roots."

    The trend coincides with growing evangelical support for Trump's embrace of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his hard-line policies, even as U.S. Jews have grown more critical.

    A recent Pew Research Center survey found that 42% of U.S. Jews say Trump "favors the Israelis too much," while just 15% of U.S. evangelicals agreed with that statement.
    Evangelical leaders of the Christian Zionism movement, from Jerry Falwell Sr. to John Hagee, have attributed their fervent support for the state of Israel to their own Holy Land travel, according to Daniel Hummel, author of Covenant Brothers: Evangelicals, Jews, and U.S.-Israeli Relations.
    "They say visiting Israel was a key part of their political awakening," Hummel says, "and this goes down to the rank-and-file people in their organizations."

    Pilgrims gather on the banks of the Jordan River at Galilee for baptisms. Israeli authorities are eager to accommodate tourists' interest in ancient Israel, according to author Daniel Hummel.

    Brilliant, ''an endless program of war '' (my take) ,
    going down the path of supporting and dying for anyone including
    Israel that's bent on eliminating Muslims.

    The idiot Air Force Vet (Stewart )in the last segment obviously considers himself an expert on
    foreign relations, he talked with some Muslims.

    I have no special love for Muslims or any of Israel's neighbors, but I will never stop defending ''their right to exist''
    (one of Israel's big payday cards, they seem to apply to only themselves) .

    Summary of what I understand Scheuer to be saying , and I agree;

    As long as we continue to try to police the world and attempt to make other cultures adhere to ours, there will be
    a cost, we are being bankrupt and continue to lose American lives, we are not accomplishing anything, not effecting
    significant change, just nurturing the hate for us that is brought on by tyrannical and brutal interventionism.

    From their actions it also appears they fear Arab Christian more than Arab muslims and Ron Paul had claimed that Islamist groups Hamas was created by Israel. That did weaken secular/Christian leadership of PLO.
