"[Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad is really one of the best allies of the Christian Right and of the Jewish Right." - Rabbi Michael Lerner

As leader of the politically powerful group Christians United for Israel (CUFI), Pastor John Hagee wants to bring millions of Christians together to support Israel. But some say his message is dangerous: “It is time for America to…consider a military preemptive strike against Iran to prevent a nuclear holocaust in Israel and a nuclear attack in America.”

Then, Bill Moyers gets theological and political context on Christian Zionism from Dr. Timothy P. Weber, an evangelical Christian, historian, and the author of ON THE ROAD TO ARMAGEDDON: HOW EVANGELICALS BECAME ISRAEL'S BEST FRIEND, and Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of TIKKUN, a Jewish journal of politics, culture, and spirituality.

Also on the program, a year after the tragic shooting, Bill Moyers looks at what the Amish can teach us about healing.

Ronald J. Sider, president of Evangelicals for Social Action offers another voice from the evangelical Christian community on hope for peace in the Middle East.

What's driving the popularity of religious movements? Tell us what you think.

Preview Bill Moyers' essay on lessons from the Amish.
