How can Zionism be Christian?

The Church and the Synagogue - Strasburg Cathedral, ~1230 CE

Here are some Bible passages that provide an answer for this question:

Amos 9:14-15

14 "Also I will restore the captivity of My people Israel,

And they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them; They will also plant vineyards and drink their wine, And make gardens and eat their fruit.

15 "I will also plant them on their land,

And they will not again be rooted out from their land Which I have given them," Says the LORD your God.

Luke 21:31-33

31 "So you also, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of God is near.
32 "Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all things take place.
33 "Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

Zechariah 12:9-10

9 "And in that day I will set about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10 "I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn.
Our Conclusion: Christian Zionism does not see the Church replace Israel as do most Christian denominations till this day (see the evidence above from one of the biggest Cathedrals of Europe: On the right you see the triumphant Church proudly looking down on the rejected Synagogue on the left. The two statues are allegorical sculptures decorating the East entrance of the Cathedral.) Christian Zionism is way beyond all Israeli politics. That kind of Zionism does not regard Israel as a nation of saints that never make any mistakes. Christian Zionism announces to Israel the salvation she needs.

Christian Zionism as a modern theological and political movement embraces the most extreme ideological positions of Zionism. It has become deeply detrimental to a just peace between Palestine and Israel. It propagates a worldview in which the Christian message is reduced to an ideology of empire, colonialism and militarism. In its extreme form, it places an emphasis on apocalyptic events leading to the end of history rather than living Christ’s love and justice today. ( William H. from http://ahealthgroup.net )

 Sorry but the titles of the statues are obviously the wrong way round. The blindfolded figure losing it's grip on the Ten Commandments is obviously the Church whilst the triumphant beauty is obviously Israel renewed !!

Assuming ( contra Mooser) that an American Jew can aanodbn his/her/its Jewish identity* , so what? Any reason why he/she/it shouldn't?(* In one of my classes, after a discussion about loyalties, group membership, duties to ancestors, etc., a student expressed great relief. Hitherto she had be laboring under the belief that, because her ancesstors came from Greece, and she had been brought up to think of herself as a Greek, she had to be a sort of Greek. After the class she realised that she didn't, and could just be a happy American. She didn't have to care about Greece, or Greek culture, or pretend to like Greek folk music, or be nasty to Turks, or say gyro when she wanted a kebab, or any of that other stuff.I would imagine aanodbning Jewish identity would be similar.)

Yes I totally agree. Jesus Christ never said HE will bring a new "worldly name" religions but HE will bring a new way, a promise, a new testament.

So in fact Jesus of Nazareth himself is a Jews but HE oppose the cultural practice on Jews and HE insisted to bring back the real real way to Jews, it is a spirit way.

Islam himself are believed on this way but Islamic thinking always from worldly way. I can say when Christian thinking of Jews way from spirit paradigm then Islam thinking are opposite side, Islam thinking of Jews way from worldly paradigm.

Both Christian and Islam were thought that Jews already soiled with human cultural influences.
