    Where is the press about Netanyahu and Michael Oren participating in apocalyptic televangelist John Hagee's Christians United for Israel event on the night of Biden's arrival? In light of questions about Netanyahu's intent, shouldn't this be in the news? It is important politically because Netanyahu apparently believes that tens of millions of Christian Zionists (those driven by end times beliefs) will support him in defying peace attempts. Of course, as seen in the books and sermons of Hagee and other end times activists, this support is based on a narrative in which Rabbinic Judaism is destroyed in order to bring about a Christian millennial utopia headquartered in Jerusalem. If you doubt their ability to influence politics, look at 1998 when Netanyahu and Hagee also collaborated. Before meeting with Bill Clinton, Netanyahu detoured to the Mayflower Hotel in D.C. where evangelist Jerry Falwell had assembled 100s and Hagee led them in shouting, "Not one inch!"
