Christian Zionism and Islamophobia is a sobering and informative one and three quarter hour YouTube video cast: “On Wednesday, January 30, 2013, ICMES (International Council for Middle East Studies) co-hosted a session on the seldom discussed, often misunderstood issue of Christian Zionism and its relationship to Islamophobia, at The National Press Club in Washington, DC. In coordination with the Council for the National Interest (CNI), the event offered three intersecting perspectives on the role, function, and meaning of U.S. Christian support for Zionism and the pro-Israel Lobby. Jon Basil Utley, Associate Publisher of The American Conservative and Robert A. Taft Fellow for International and Constitutional Studies at the Ludwig von Mises Institute began the session with a discussion of what he refers to as the ‘Armageddonites.’ ICMES President Norton Mezvinsky, Professor Emeritus of History at Central Connecticut State University and co-author of Jewish Fundamentalism in Israel, then pinpointed the theology of Christian Zionism, specifying the Christian Zionist view of Islam, and suggested the political impact of all of this. Fuad Sha’ban, Vice President of Yarmouk Private University in Jbab, Syria, Professor of Literature and Translation in the Department of English at the University of Petra in Amman, Jordon, and author of For Zion’s Sake: The Judeo-Christian Tradition in American Culture, rounded out the session with an analysis of the cultural-historical background of American concepts of Islam, with emphasis on the theme of Christian Zionist views of Islam in the United States. The session was moderated by Dr. Philip Giraldi, CNI Executive Director and former CIA counter-terrorism specialist and military intelligence officer.”
