JERUSALEM - American evangelist Pat Robertson warned U.S. President Bush that he would risk losing the support of evangelical Christians if he changed his position supporting Israeli sovereignty over all of Jerusalem...
Christians _ estimated at tens of millions of Americans _ overwhelmingly support Bush for his pro-Israel policies, Robertson told a Jerusalem news conference Monday... Robertson said Israel should not have to give up land for a Palestinian state but Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt should take in the 3.5 million Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The founder of the Christian Broadcasting Network unabashedly said he favors Israel over the Palestinians, saying "it isn't a question of politics, it's just a question of God's plan."
