Our true allies

How tiring it is to hear the shrill cries of alarm whenever Evangelical Christians seek to support Israel. Their chance of converting me or any Jew secure in his belief or identity is non-existent. Why, then, should their money and support be rebuffed? Can the only allies of the Jews be leftist? Can the only allies of the Jews be atheist? Can the only acceptable allies of the Jews be those who are poor or of the minorities? In some paternalistic liberal outlook, these are the only people with whom we can ally ourselves? The majority of Jews now seem to consider domestic issues more important than Israel when it comes to their vote. Does that also require that those of us who use the Israel issue as our litmus test to reject Christian help?
