Helping Suffering Christians
Evangelical Christians are the latest focus of an aggressive and deceptive pro-Palestinian/anti-Israel campaign designed to turn traditional supporters of Israel away from that support in favor of the Palestinian cause. This monograph equips Evangelicals with the information necessary to refute the faulty narrative at the heart of this campaign. It also exposes the threat Christian anti-Zionism poses to Evangelical-Jewish relations.
Submitted Under Protest is a collection of previously published essays written in response to the failure of Christian churches and para-church organizations in the United States and Europe to respond to the threat of jihadism. The text documents how these churches and the institutions they support have legitimized hostility toward Israel and have failed to speak up for Christians living in Muslim-majority countries.
The essays are written by Dexter Van Zile who has served as Christian Media Analyst for the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America (CAMERA) since 2006. During this time, Van Zile has been at the forefront of the effort to document and counter anti-Zionist propaganda in Christian churches and ecumenical institutions. He has also worked tirelessly to document the use of anti-Judaic tropes to demonize the Jewish homeland.
The biblical book of Esther records an account of Jewish resistance to attempted genocide in the setting of the Persian Empire. According to the text, Jews were targeted for annihilation simply because of their Jewish identity. However, the story also reports that they were allowed to defend themselves against anyone who sought to kill them. In the context of attempted genocide, the message of Esther addresses a timeless and universal issue of justice - that humans have the right and responsibility to defend themselves against those who intend to murder. 'Jews and Anti-Judaism in Esther and the Church' shows how the anti-Judaism that is a central feature of Esther relates to the contemporary issue of the contested legitimacy of the State of Israel as part of the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict. In her outstanding book, Dr. Tricia Miller uses an academic approach to demonstrate the relationship of historic theology to current events concerning Israel for the purpose of encouraging Christians to support Israel's right to exist and defend itself against those who seek its destruction.

This volume reviews many of the material errors made in Jimmy Carter's book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid. It includes articles by a number of analysts with expertise in commenting on Carter's policies, statements and perspectives. Kenneth Stein, Dennis Ross, Michael Oren, Alan Dershowitz, Melvin Konner and Rachel Ehrenfeld each offer important insight about the former president's lamentable distortions. The book restates essential facts about the Arab-Israeli conflict and underscores the need for reform of publishing houses, such as Simon and Schuster, that violate basic standards of accuracy, while promoting and profiting from such non-fiction books.
Of particular relevance to the subject of Christians in relation to Israel is the chapter by CAMERA'S Dexter Van Zile titled, Carter's Faith: Habitat for Hostility.
