Location: McCardell Bicentennial Hall, 220

Date & Time: Friday, April 19, 2013 - 2:30pm - 2:45pm

Abstract:

Christian Zionism is a movement that has had significant historical impact on American relations with Israel, and Christian Zionists today still actively seek to shape Israel's future.  But how do those directly involved view this movement?  How do Jews - both in America and in Israel - perceive the assistance offered Israel by Christian Zionist organizations?  And how do Palestinian Christians reconcile themselves to this international Christian community that supports Israel's settlement policies?  Utilizing a diverse collection of sources - specifically Hebrew-language sources - this study examines these groups' responses to Christian Zionism, assesses the interface occurring between Jews, Palestinian Christians, and major Christian Zionist leaders, and analyzes the place Christian Zionist organizations currently occupy in the faith-based discourse on Israel and Palestine.
