I was a pro Palestinian European student when I asked Jesus into my heart one day 36 years ago and became a Christian; one of the first changes I noticed in myself after having done that was that all of a sudden I had a strong love for Israel and the Jewish people. I knew right away this was a radical, uexpected and unusual change in me and I saw it as a testimony of Jesus' love for Israel. I think all Christians who has received the spirit of Jesus in their hearts has experienced some conversion along this same line that I did and that is what you are seeing with born again Christians in Israel and all over the world reaching out and supporting Israel at every turn. It is an expression of the love of Jesus for Israel through those who obey his new comandment and who commune with his Holy Spirit in their heart.
