Well, I have counted Hank Hanegraaff as one American evangelical Christians on the side of Arabs, Gary DeMar as another. John Piper has also sounded something akin to Sizer at times. If you count Rick Warren as an evangelical then he is another guy. Mark Driscoll also downplays Israel and so is Bill Hybels (incidentally, Driscoll, Hybels, and Warren all have ties to Sizer’s church programmes. Piper and Hanegraaff are friends of Driscoll and DeMar is also doctrinal brother with Piper on the theological doctrinal issue of Israel)
DeMar has invited Stephen Sizer to speak on his pro-Arab agenda. One thing that strikes me is that in the last 3 years, even many otherwise pro-Arab secular European journalists and pundits start to say Israel is right to drive Hamas into the ground (I know one Chinese-Indonesian guy Martin Oei who is a secularist liberal Catholic, and he is a candidate of the upcoming election of the head of the Hong Kong Journalists Association), but Sizer begs otherwise. So you can see there is something more than journalism coverage that is at hand when these professing Christians say they are against Israel.
