(JTA) lmost one-third of U.S. voters identify with Christian Zionism when it’s defined as Israel’s control of all the “Promised Land” as a condition for the messiah’s arrival.
The poll carried out earlier this month by Zogby International for the Council for the National Interest found that 16 percent of respondents strongly believed, and 15 percent somewhat believed, that “Israel must have all of the Promised Land, including Jerusalem, to facilitate the second coming of the messiah.”

Some 53 percent didn’t believe that statement and 16 percent weren’t sure. The council lobbies for cuts in U.S. assistance to Israel.
