    End times theology that equates the modern state of Israel with the Israel of biblical prophecy has caused some evangelical Christians to let eschatology trump ethics when it comes to the Middle East, a Palestinian-American Christian told a general session at the Global Faith Forum at NorthWood Church in Keller.

    Henry Mikhail, a Jerusalem-born Arab who now serves on a peace and justice work group of the Reformed Church of America’s General Synod Council, rejected the notion that support for the Palestinian people makes a person anti-Israel.

    Martin Clay writes his personal experience attending "Christ at the Checkpoint" conference of bringing together Palestinian and international Evangelical Christians concerning the theology of the land.

    "The conference, open to local residents as well as nationals and internationals, as well as focusing on the shadow cast over the West Bank and all Palestinians by the damaging ethnic implications of the beliefs of Christian Zionism, was a forum for worship in English and Arabic,  for investigating issues such as the principles of non-violence (non-violence we learned is not the same as peace but a technique for activism), and the position of Palestinian Christians within Israel, and for visits to the Checkpoint to give delegates an insight into what local people faced at 6 am in the morning".

    Across the Middle East, where Christianity was born and its followers once made up a sizable portion of the population, Christians are now tiny minorities. Driven by different factors – the search for better opportunities abroad, their status as targets of Iraq's sectarian conflict, a low birth rate, and discrimination – the trend largely holds true across a region where Christians have maintained a presence for two millenniums.
