Abstract:This dissertation, "American Religious Diplomacy and the State of Israel, 1933-1979," argues that when Hitler came to power in Germany in 1933 American Protestants were overwhelmingly anti-Semitic but that by 1979—the year a self-professed born again Christian President brokered the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty—American Protestants had aligned themselves fully behind Israel. Politically powerful evangelical Christians joined forces with theologically liberal Protestants to offer Israel their political, theological and financial support. The dissertation shows how American Protestants' reacted to the Holocaust and the establishment of Israel by becoming philosemitic. It goes on to show how this dramatic attitudinal and theological shift impacted U.S.-Israeli foreign relations and U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East. Shocked by the reality of anti-Semitism during and after World War II, theologically liberal Protestants supported the formation of a Jewish State in Palestine for humanitarian and politically pragmatic reasons, while reexamining their earlier anti-Jewish tendencies in mainstream Protestant theology. Evangelical Protestants, too, supported the establishment of Israel, but for wholly separate reasons. Evangelical leaders hailed the establishment of Israel and its victory during the 1967 War as "a fulfillment of biblical prophecy." They argued that America's survival was inextricably tied to Israel's and in so doing, redefined the meaning of patriotism.
