About 80% of evangelicals believe that the nation of Israel is still God’s chosen land. One view, known as “Christian Zionism” is the belief that the nation of Israel is still central to God’s plan – that the Jews are still God’s chosen people, that the land that was given to the nation of Israel by God is still their land by divine right, and, that anyone who tries to take it away from the Jews will incur the wrath of God. But there are important things at stake here in the “twisted scriptures” used to justify the Christian Zionist position. Many Christians are obstructing peace in the Middle East.

For ISIS “and those similarly motivated,” insists retired Marine Lt. Col. James G. Zumwalt in an essay published by Family Security Matters, “a rational world should recognize but one `final solution' exists – their extinction.” Will Grigg's analysis of the attack on Muslims in the US is eye opening and should be heard by all people of good will.
