Christian Zionists believe that, in order to fulfill Biblical prophecy, Israel must conquer most of the Middle East from the River Nile to the Euphrates. They are a growing force in American politics with ties to many powerful pro Israeli groups in Washington. We also learn about dispensationalism, a belief in a system of historical progression as revealed by the Bible, consisting of a series of stages in God's self-evaluation and plan of salvation. I found this helped me to understand a bit more the addiction to Israel held so deeply by many Americans, especially those in Washington.

Once considered a marginal doctrine amongst evangelicals, the dispensationalist theology of Christian zionism includes a belief in the Rapture where the faithful are lifted up to heaven while the rest of humanity, including most of the Jews, shall perish.

Ex-Communicated tells the story of Israeli occupation in Palestine through the genre of landscape and the perspective of a camera lens. In this film we will learn about Christian Zionism and its apocalyptic beliefs and how the two, radical Zionism and Christian Zionism work together.

What he shows in these images is how the forces of occupation use the landscape as an instrument of control over Palestinians and a mechanism for dispossessing them of land and property. Much of this story is untold and largely unseen. These photos convey forcefully how the process of enclosure on the landscape has “ex-communicated” Palestinians, immobilizing them into ever-diminishing spaces, while at the same time inspiring them into heroic acts of peaceful resistance.

As explained, the Zionists Establishment realizes the values of Christian Zionism despite the essential antisemitism of its ideology. To Jewish Zionists, the Christian Zionists are useful idiots. For the end timer, Christian Zionists, the Jews are sacrificial lambs.
