Christian Zionism, U.S. foreign policy, Middle East
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractChristian Zionism remains a powerful religious and political force in American politics and continues to greatly impact U.S. foreign policy and geo strategic interests in the Middle East. Despite the fact that many Americans believe that U.S. policy in the region and its unwavering support for Israel accentuates anti-American sentiment in the area, most continue to overwhelmingly support Israel and steadfastly maintain that the benefits of their alliance with Israel significantly outweigh the potential costs. Thus, in the case of Christian Zionism, as both a religious movement and political ideology, it serves to reinforce and solidify the close historical ties between these two allies more than 60 years after the original founding of the state of Israel.
