5. Origins of Left Behind novels 'end time' beliefs are behind this...
See the history of 'futurism' vs. 'historicist' eschatologies

This plays neatly into Bush's "base" as George Monbiot's article shows us:

Their beliefs are bonkers, but they are at the heart of power
--US Christian fundamentalists are driving Bush's Middle East policy
by George Monbiot
Tuesday April 20, 2004
The Guardian,3604,1195568,...

However, Monbiot mistakenly puts the starting point for dispensationalism/futurism in the 1800s rather than being the original Jesuit line from Francisco Ribera's 1500s, in order to counter Luther's view of the 'anti-christ', the papacy.

This 'anti-christ' would require a Third Temple, and PBS's article along with globalsecurity's weblinks show how using this plays into Bush's hands...
