Promoting Israel?

NRO's Mike Potemra says that "Anti-Iraq War blogger Mark Shea is trying to drive a wedge between U.S. evangelicals and Israel, by posting a video on his website that he hopes will shock us into realizing that Israel is just another “secular nation-state.” Potemra argues that even evangelicals such as himself see the humor in this video.

Now, I know you guys will enjoy the video, and I too can enjoy a bit of tongue in cheek humor, bikini clad babes and all, but it does go a bit too far for me in the end. I don't like the "Holy Mother of God" bit, but everything else is fine. Like Potemra says, Israel is both a secular national state and a nation of descendants of God’s Chosen People.
