Nuggets from "Whatever Happened to Heaven?" by Dave Hunt (written in 1988)
In the past, Christians in the West have been the major base of support for Israel. With the new the-church-is-Israel movement gaining a wide following among evangelicals who only a few months or years ago would have rejected outright such a view, a drastic change is developing in the attitude of Christians toward Israel. This is especially true among charismatics, and the nation of Israel is unhappily noticing the difference. Although those promoting this belief deny the charge of anti-Semitism, their increasingly bold use of sarcasm, ridicule, and openly displayed antagonism toward Israel is ominous. And the trend is escalating.
