Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s continued lack of understanding about the difference between Israel and the terrorists who control the Palestinian territories is deeply troubling to one leader of a Messianic Jewish ministry.
During the latest GOP debate in Austin, Texas, the GOP frontrunner reiterated that he would take a neutral stance in disputes between Israel and the Palestinians.
"This is a bedrock evangelical position — not to be neutral when it comes to the Middle East conflict,” the Christian leader explained. “We have many churches now caving to replacement theology, which says the Church is the new Israel.”
Merkel cannot understand anyone’s argument to equally support Israel and the Palestinians in their longtime dispute.
“I'm not sure how you can be neutral when one side of the conflict — and it's certainly not all Palestinians, but too many of them — are simply barbarians because of their Islamic faith."
Markell says that it is incomprehensible that so many evangelical Christians can support Trump when both Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and former Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) both strongly support the nation of Israel.

Yes, gay activists want to punish Christian conservatives
I've said for years, and been scorned for doing so, that those who came out of the closet want to put us in the closet – referring, of course, to LGBT activists. In light of the recent threat from the foremost LGBT political donor in America, it's hard to scorn my words now.
