Webinar description: The largest demographic pushing US support of Israel is not Jewish, but Christian. Claiming to have gained 3 million members in the last year, Christians United for Israel is the largest Israeli lobby in the U.S. Their support of Israel’s most militant policies is based off a theology called Christian Zionism. In this webinar we will expose the racist, anti-Muslim, and anti-Jewish underpinnings of this theology which is a key ideology of the religious right, and offer resources and opportunities for SURJ members to confront this ideology.
