Israel’s years-long recruitment of African American Christians: A case study 

For many decades, Israel partisans have worked to recruit American Christians to support Israel, despite Israel’s dispossession and oppression of Christians during its founding war and in the years since. Even before Israel was established in 1948, there were major efforts to recruit Christians to the Zionist cause.

Many Christian Americans (and Jewish Americans) initially opposed the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine, which would entail the ethnic cleansing of a land whose population was 95 percent non-Jewish. The movement to establish Israel, “political zionism,” formed front groups to overcome this opposition by targeting Americans of all religions and political backgrounds and flooding them with propaganda. There are even indications that the Scofield Bible, which influenced millions of evangelicals to support Israel, was procured by Zionists.
