...I believe the primary reason is a misunderstanding of numerous prophecies relating to the role Israel plays in the endgame of the world, along with other passages that involve the words "blessed" and "children of Israel."
The problem with those passages as interpreted by many evangelicals, however, is that it is more or less spelled out in the New Testament that Christians are the "New Israel," which makes a lot more sense. Israel today is basically a secular European nation that landed in the Middle East.
Will it play a role in the endgame? I have no idea. Heck, by the time the endgame comes, we might very well be travelling the stars. Israel might not exist when the End comes, or it might control the entire Middle East. Beats me, so my main view is summed up by "End foreign aid, end foreign interference, get the United States' act together."
