Abstract
Societal security, as opposed to physical security, is the primary driver of contemporary international relations. The American nation is bound together, not by ethnic ties, but by values, which have evolved from the US’s historical roots in Western, Protestant society. The ‘special relationship’ with the State of Israel is part of the US’s global strategy aimed at protecting its societal security. Americans view Israelis as exhibiting shared values; therefore they identify with them in the conflict. While historically, politicians viewed Christian Zionists as extremists, tolerated only for electoral success; today, Christians United for Israel has softened its approach and appeals to Christian American values as the basis of support for Israel. This approach has changed the way Americans think about Israel and the popular discourse employed.
