Who Said That?

"For we Israelites of the present age do not dream any longer about the  restoration of Palestine and the Messiah crowned with a diadem of earthly power and glory.  America is our Palestine; here is our Zion and Jerusalem;  Washington and the signers of the glorious Declaration of Independence--of universal human right, liberty and happiness--are our deliverers, and the time when their doctrines will be recognized and carried into effect is the time so hopefully foretold by our prophets"

Post revolution. I'm going to guess it's Mormon.

I'm guessing an American-Jewish politician that loves America, Michael Chertoff.

I recall hearing that the Puritans had some funny ideas about Israel, so my guess would be some non-Jewish, very Presbyterian (or perhaps Congregational) American revolutionary. I'll take a stab in the dark with John Witherspoon.

He's got to be Jewish- these guys cater to the American sentiment of dispensationalist's and pre-mil's. They also collect a lot of American money for the state of Israel. Sounds like a politician speaking double-speak. He's smoozing in order to collect revenue for Israel. I forget the guys name who runs one of the leading fund collecting agencies for Israel here in the states but it may be that guy.

Gordon B. Hinckley is my guess.

The last few 'Who Said That' quotes have a Church / State feel. Methinks current quotes are being gleaned from Pastor Kim's research for his next book on the Two Kingdoms.

It does not have to be someone Jewish if he is referring to the Church as the modern day Israel. Just read it again and see the error of my too quick judgement. He does refer to "our prophets" though who were all Jewish I believe. That does not necessarily mean he has to be Jewish if he is lumping the Church and the true Israelites together.

Confusing America with the new Zion is a bit of a stretch. I'd like to hear his biblical rationale for that belief. RubeRad's guess of a Puritan may be right.

A pre May 14 1948, post revolutionary war Jewish individual. That should narrow it down.

I had to google his name but I did not look to see if he said it. B Netanyahu?
