    So many things i could write about this article but lets say that no Christian I've known has ever consider a Jew their enemy. Millions of us support Israel because God said the physical country would be established and it was right when Daniel fortold it exactly including Jerusalem. We also know Jesus was a rabbi and understanding more about his 'Jewishness' would be quite welcome however Rabbi Boteach immediately has no credibility as he negates the work of Paul who was key to the Christian understanding of the Jewish aspect and a myriad of other things. This is the same thing done by Islamic groups, Paul is the first to go always. I think Israel will always have Christian support as we believe we are all the Israel of God and inheritors of the promise to Abraham which came before anyone was called Jewish. Mutual understanding is great but the only real difference is we accept Jesus as the Messiah and many Jews do not. We can water down each others interpretation to sell books but that's reality. Better we support each other in friendship based on common grounding in the Abrahamic tradition and let God sort the rest of it out theologically because where you have 2 people there's 3 opinions. And don't forget there were other tribes of Israel long ago. Where did they go? Care to guess? Judah and Benjamin (& Levites) were call Jewish only, there's much more to the story. Nevertheless we support the right of physical Israel and its people to exist and prosper as God has willed it and history confirms it.
