Paul Kivel outlines the notion of Christian Zionism and the influence it has in the United States. Kivel provides the history of Christian Zionism and its relation to the Jewish Zionist movement. Important members of the Christian Zionist movement are noted such as Theodore Herzl (the founder of the movement) and Lord Balfur. In contemporary context, Kivel highlights how Christian Zionism influences United States foreign policy by supporting Israeli policy in Palestine and the expansion of the Israeli state by providing military aid.

The Teaching Against Islamophobia resources were developed with funding support from the Law Foundation of BC, and the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at SFU.
