This is risky territory, but necessary.

Most of the kooky, dispensationalist crowd in the bible belt will not support someone who criticizes Israel, regardless of how accurate and needed the criticism is. In my opinion, there is nothing that Rand can do to win over the majority of Jewish Zionists, they hate him because of his religious beliefs and that they don't jive with something that they can fully manipulate (post-millenials are more feared by the political establish than any other variety because they tend to be skeptical of centralized power).

Having said that, Rand isn't doing this to win over William Krystol Jr., Charles Krauthammer, Richard Pearle, and others of the insignificant except for their wealth and influence pedaling 2.2% of the electorate, he's doing it to peel away the Christian voters that have been duped by their pastors into worshiping them. You don't get the nomination of a major party without kissing Israel's proverbial backside, no exceptions, deal with it.

I don't concur with the viewpoint that Israel can do no wrong and is above obeying the laws of God the way a lot of idiots in the Republican Party seem to, but I will vote for a candidate who either believes this and is better on other stuff, or who is merely paying lip-service to it. You call it treason, I call it realism.
