They're not all stupid and corrupt

From a letter signed by over eighty American evangelist Christian leaders:



“As evangelical Christians, we believe our faith compels us to speak a word together at this crucial moment.


The Bible clearly teaches that God longs for justice and peace for all people. We believe that the principles about justice taught so powerfully by the Hebrew prophets apply to all nations, including the United States, Israel, and the Palestinians. Therefore we are compelled to work for a fair, negotiated solution for both Israelis and Palestinians. We resolve to work diligently for a secure, enduring peace and a flourishing economy for the democratic State of Israel. We also resolve to work for a viable permanent, democratic Palestinian State with a flourishing economy that offers economic opportunity to all its people. We believe that the way forward is for the Israelis and Palestinians to negotiate a fair, two-state solution.”


Of course, you won’t find the names of any of the bought-and-paid-for televangelist crooks on the list of signatories.
