neb: Uhh... whut? He does realise, as an evangelical Christian, that Israel is full of Jewish people who aren't, right? Or is he hoping to have it cleared for use by Christians when the rapture comes?
The connection seems to be Christian Zionism, a rather strange concept given that its proponents are right-wing evangelicals who have historically not been so well-disposed towards Jewish people. As this earlier post points out, it's a pretty odd alliance.
