forces of good and evil will
fight for supremacy. When
total destruction seems emi-
nent Christ will appear, the
fighting will stop, and all non-
believers, including the Jews,
will convert to him or suffer
eternal damnation.
That is why millenarians
see all catastrophes as a sign
that God is fulfilling the pro-
phecy. As Pat Robertson ex-
plained, "We are not to weep
as the people of the world
weep when there are certain
tragedies or break ups of
governments or systems of
the world. We are not to
wring our hands and say,
`Isn't that awful?' It isn't
awful at all. It is an evident
token of our salvation, of
where God is taking us?'
The pro-Israel community
must clearly understand that
the religious right is
motivated more by the belief
that the restoration of Israel
is crucial to its religious
fulfillment than by the belief
that the Jewish people
deserve a homeland.
Sometimes, politics is a
great game. It allows the
players to make all sorts of
pronouncements and if they
are clever enough, never
follow through with a con-
crete demonstration of
commitment.
America's religious right
has played this game with
great success. Over the years,
the pro-Israel community has
listened to the eloquent ap-
peals for U.S. support for
Israel from religious right
leaders and has been
thankful for this evidence
that a strong U.S.-Israel rela-
tionship is what most
Americans — not just
American Jews — want.
Eventually, though, it
became obvious that those
statements of support rarely
translated into action.
With anticipated budget
cuts threatening future
foreign aid bills, the pro-Israel
community must encourage a
more active form of support
from the religious right. No
doubt, statements of support
without follow-up action are
better than no statements
and no action. However, we
must not deceive ourselves
that statements by
themselves amount to effec-
tive support. Congressional
leaders must continuously be
shown that U.S. support for
Israel is a priority for all
Americans, not just the
American Jewish community.
The religious right, through
an energetic and dynamic
grass-roots campaign, can
play a vital role in ensuring
that the U.S.-Israel partner-
ship continues to grow well
into the 21st century.
