"The largely uncritical support of a large percentage of white evangelicals of U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s policies toward Israel is deeply distressing. These evangelicals have affirmed the Trump administration’s move of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the identification of the city of Jerusalem as the “undivided capital” of the Jewish people, the annexation of the Golan Heights from Syria, the cutting off of hundreds of millions of dollars of U.S. government funds meant for the United Nations Relief and
Works Agency (UNRWA) and Palestinian humanitarian assistance, and the recent “Peace to Prosperity” plan that was announced in January. Each of these policies further perpetuates the elevation of the aspirations of one people over another."
