As regards the Democratic platform’s omitting both mention of God and recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, there was perhaps some method to the madness. At least, according to Mark Alan Siegel, who is the chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic party. In an interview with Breitbart.com, Siegel said:
The Christians just want us to be there so we can be slaughtered and converted and bring on the second coming of Jesus Christ. The worst possible allies for the Jewish state are the fundamentalist Christians who want Jews to die and convert so they can bring on the second coming of their Lord. It is a false friendship. They are seeking their own ends and not ours.
