The end-times fundamentalists have been taught by their pastors that the rising of Zionist Israel on May 5, 1948 initiated a host of end times prophecy as spoken about in the Revelations.
This is even though the ungodly Rothschild family was the prime force behind the Zionist movement, and most Zionists are secular Ashkenazi Khazars who originated from the Caucuses region of Asia, adopted Judaism as their religion about 700 AD, and are not blood-related to Abraham at all.
The end-times fundamentalist are all wrapped around the axle over Israel. They hate Muslims because these people are Israel's enemy. They condone every horrific human rights violation Israel perpetrates against the Arabs who live in and around Palestine. They extremely dislike Barrack Obama, because President Obama has stood up to Benjamin Netanyahu, and will not take any crap from the petulant and bombastic Israeli PM. They think God requires the United States to support and feed endless money to Israel, and to green-light everything Israel wants to do.
Obama has stood his ground with Bibi. It is about time the U.S. shows Israel who is going to be in charge of the U.S.-Israeli relationship.
