Here is an interesting link to the Jerusalem Post on the rejection of Messianic Jews by the majority of Jews. This, in my mind, reinforces my disagreement with Christian (or any) Zionism. God has only one people today or ever. That is the “ekklesia”, translated as “church” in the New Testament, and “the congregation” in the Old Testament. The important thing to God is what a person believes, not his or her ethnicity. 

The Book of Romans says it all: 

Circumcision of No Avail  Romans 2:25-29

For circumcision is indeed profitable if you keep the law; but if you are a breaker of the law, your circumcision has become uncircumcision. Therefore, if an uncircumcised man keeps the righteous requirements of the law, will not his uncircumcision be counted as circumcision? And will not the physically uncircumcised, if he fulfills the law, judge you who, even with your written code and circumcision, are a transgressor of the law? For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly, nor is circumcision that which is outward in the flesh; but he is a Jew who is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the Spirit, not in the letter; whose praise is not from men but from God.
