There are still so many things I have yet to be exposed to, and the Roots of Christian Zionism was one of them. After watching Carlson's DVD tonight, I was struck by how simply American support for British-Israel's wars and genocidal police actions can be explained. Here's more on this topic: http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article4531.htm
A criminal named Cyrus Schofield (not Vance) wrote an interpretation of the Bible that promotes Israel and militant Zionism. The Oxford University Press published it in 1907, and continues to add interpretations that include a warning from God that any nation that does not protect Israel will be judged harshly by God. This is the Bible used by the fundamentalists (like Bush II and Sarah Palin) who believe in and hope for Armageddon. Now I think I understand why so many Christians call me anti-Semitic, and it explains a lot about what happened at Constance Cumbey's blog. The Christian Zionists call me anti Semitic, the "intellectuals" call me a conspiracy theorist, and I'm "pathological" if I defend myself against any of them.
On a related note, here's David over at Hegel's Hotel using his superior Hegelian miseducation to show how many different ways he can insult me. Some of his names for me are pretty funny really, besides all the normal slander (see above), I'm labled everything from "trash talking" to a religious fanatic. He admits he knows nothing about communitarianism but thinks anti communitarianism and communitarianism are basically the same thing! http://hegelshotel-mostrecentpapers.blogspot.com/2009/03/hegels-hotel-dgb-philosophy-is-not.html
