Interesting insights on why the State Department is so biased against Israel's war on terror.

With a doctrinal justification for Christians replacing Jews as the covenant people of God, it was a short step for these missionaries and their children to adopt a pro-Arab political posture.
Actually, it's not a short step at all. There is no reason for Christians to be pro-Palestinian. However, for an interesting view and some background info, see this article by Bat Yeor (which I posted earlier today):

Basically, it is a story of how, over the last two centuries, the children of missionaries to the Muslim world of the Middle East, have been pipelined through Ivy League schools into the State Department. Once embedded there, in the Office of Near Eastern Affairs, their love for the Arab peoples and culture has had a major determining influence on our Middle East policy, especially as that relates to Israel. As one put it, The Jews were a distant, unreal world to us then, but the Palestinians were individuals we knew (page 4).
Another is more chilling, to a man, the American community in Syria and Lebanon remained opposed to the State of Israel and some even crossed the line into anti-Semitism (page 7). The fact is, many of these missionaries were from mainline Protestant denominations, whose doctrinal stance regarding Israel was one of supersessionism or replacement theology. With a doctrinal justification for Christians replacing Jews as the covenant people of God, it was a short step for these missionaries and their children to adopt a pro-Arab political posture.
Yep, the Doctrine of Balaam is still extant.
