    I doubt anyone is supporting Israel on faith alone.

    These Christians were not evangelicals. They were Middle Eastern Christians who evidently share the same belief that Israel doesn't have a right to exist as most Middle Eastern Muslims.

    Americans have the ability to separate the actions of the Israeli government from the Jewish people.

    No government...is 100% infallible. No government in the history of the world has been 100% infallible.

    Anyone who believes Israel is 100% infallible and exempt from any critical analysis is an idiot.
    Extremely well put!

    He was saying 'most' so I don't see how that counts as a stereotype, and unfortunately he's very right.

    I know how to read.

    These Christians were not evangelicals. They were Middle Eastern Christians who evidently share the same belief that Israel doesn't have a right to exist as most Middle Eastern Muslims.
    These refers to the Christians in attendance. Most refers to Middle Eastern Muslims.
