    Falwell regarded human history as unfolding according to a divine, and therefore unchangeable, plan. The Jews play a central part in the fulfillment of this plan, but this does not imply that the Jews always individually or collectively behave in a moral manner. Whatever role the Jews play at any given time as part of the divine plan, Falwell believed that only those who stand with the Jews (not agree with, necessarily, but stand with) would be saved. Within this world view, to call Falwell anti-semitic is to find fault with the divine plan, which means finding fault with G-d Himself. I, for one, am grateful for the support that Falwell gave to Israel. Abraham Foxman, although he disagreed with Falwell, in the end recognized a true friend when he saw one. Given the sick moral hypocrisy being exhibited today by many of the "liberal elite" who consider themselves enlightened, I regard evangelical Christians as no less desirable allies as any other group.
