Evangelical Left Targets Israel

by Mark Tooley

Anti-Israel activists rightly see American evangelicals as key to U.S. support for Israel. That is why they are targeting evangelicals with messages of pro-Palestinian solidarity as supposedly central to Christian compassion. A new evangelical film, “With God on Our Side,” is coming out this month to rebut pro-Israel Christians and persuade them to champion the Palestinian cause.

“You’ll be told that as you travel to Israel that it’s just too dangerous to take you to some of these places,” a narrator warns ominously in the film trailer. “But that is rhetoric that is employed in order to keep you on the tourist trail.”
