    While not wanting a theocratic dictatorship is wonderful (and, by the way, something that the majority of Israelis would agree with), Beck isn't here to fight that. Extremists of his ilk want to make sure that Israel stays Jewish because (according to www.beliefnet.com) "The establishment --and continuation-- of the State of Israel is essential to set the stage for the imminent return of Jesus. At the time of the Second Coming, these Christians believe, Jesus will descend from heaven, subdue all of Israel's enemies and take believers to heaven in what is known as the Rapture--literally, they will ascend to the clouds to be in heaven. This series of events ushers in the end-times. According to conservative Christians' reading of the Book of Revelation, this won't happen unless Israel exists in the Holy Land." So, of course Beck loves Israel, he just hates Jews.
