A fresh poll in Israel, shows 6 of 10 Israelis rejoicing in support by Christians.
The Israeli Magazine, Israel Today reports from a encouraging poll in Israel about Jews rejoicing in support from Christians.

With Israel having just played host to thousands of Christians participating in the Feast of Tabernacles celebrations and other gatherings, Israelis were again reminded of the vast support for the Jewish state that exists in churches around the world.
Israel Today thought it an opportune time to ask Israelis to answer some of the questions Christians most often ask us regarding this land, the threats it faces, and how Israelis view their friends and enemies.
First, we asked how Israelis view Evangelical Christian support for their state. A firm 59 percent majority said they view it as a position thing, while only 23 percent said they do not like Christian support. Interestingly, a 40 percent plurality of Israeli Arabs said they view Christian support of Israel, otherwise known as “Christian Zionism,” as a positive thing.
Next, we asked Israelis if they, like many Christians abroad, feel that Israel is about to face a regional war with their Muslim enemies. A 49 percent plurality said they see such a war happening soon, with the percentages rise sharply among religious Israeli Jews and Arabs.
One of the likely causes of such a war is an Israeli strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, which a 48 percent plurality of Israelis said should be carried out. Again, support for a strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities was much higher among religious Israelis.

It strikes me that Jesus had to walk his last day in Jerusalem, among people who spat at him and ridiculed him.
In a similar way, Christians Zionists have earlier experiences to not be welcomed in Jerusalem. But as Jesus, Christian Zionists did return all such spitting with blessings.
This is prophetic.
In the end, Jesus will some to Jerusalem as the Lion of Judah, and He will surely gain the final victory. But not without the ultimate struggle to bring a brutal end to the false Messiah, sitting on his throne inside the Old city. This false Messiah will deceive Israel and divide Christians.
But all Jewish hearts will at the end rejoice in the presence of their Messiah.
Today, the Jewish heart is softening in their relationship with Evangelical Christians. True Jews in their hundreds of thousands have been introduced to the Jesus who has saved Christians Zionists. Because of such Christians supporting the Zionist homeland, even Orthodox Jews are now considering if Jesus could be the one and only Son of God: Their promised Messiah.
Brothers and sisters. Let us keep loving the Jewish people, and support the state of Israel, and fight with them for today’s united and free Jerusalem.
