Israeli Christians Think and Do Almost the Opposite of Their American Counterparts

Catholic World News – March 11, 2016

Christians living in Israel are less likely to support Israeli government policies than their counterparts in the US, a Pew Research study has found.

Among Israeli Christians, 80% believe that their country’s government is not sincerely interested in making peace with Palestinians, and a nearly equal number (79%) believe that the construction of Jewish settlements ultimately hurts the country’s hopes for security. Most (72%) question whether Israel can be a true democracy and at the same time a Jewish confessional state. And 86% say that the US is too supportive of Israeli policies.

A 2013 survey of American Christians found that only 18% thought the US was too supportive of Israel. The number was substantially lower among Evangelical Protestants.

One comment on “Israeli Christians critical of government policies, survey finds

  1. Evangelicals almost regard support for Israel as dogma. It’s nuts.

    It’s interesting that Christians living in Israel are free to speak out in this poll. Did Pew cross over the line and interview Palestinian Christians about how life is under Hamas, a true terrorist organization?
