ISRAEL: SHOULD THE HOLY LAND ALIGN ITSELF WITH THE WEST OR THE EAST?
By: Y.K. Cherson
A verdict by the US Supreme Court about the legalization of gay marriages is a very clear manifestation of the break of the American people and the US authorities with biblical canons. In the past, the Bible was for Americans, including Presidents, Senators and Congressmen, a moral base. Biblical canons were not obligatory by the law- but entire Protestant ethics and Protestant morals, two key factors that had created America, were based on the Bible.
And American support for Israel was based on the Bible too.
Arab propagandists have been pounding the idea of the “All-Mighty Jewish Lobby” in the USA for so many years, that this perception has become widespread. The truth is that 80 percent of American Jews vote for Democrats, and those who mostly support Israel are Republicans. Among the Democrats, the percentage of support forIsrael is less than 50 percent. Among the Republicans, where there are practically no Jews, it is 95 percent.
The reason is the adherence to the Bible: a base of Republicans are Conservative Christians, for whom biblical texts are very important; they regularly read scripture, and, to this or that extent, coordinate their way of life with it.
