Fela was our mentor. He stood up against injustice. He argued and taught us how to communicate using music. Relaxing and thinking at the same time. Dancing and agitating just like Maasai, Zulu, Yoruba and other warriors all over Africa. What a science of music and struggle for total and comprehensive emancipation.
Zionism is first and foremost theology. This philosophical cult and popularly understated political mandate is justified because of the imperative: there’s is the winning side. The obvious delays and tribal defeat over the centuries is excused as judgment from God but ultimately it’s a quandary in maintaining a consistency with interpretations of exceptionalism from ancient writings. If God is on ‘our’ side and every last detail of tomorrow, having already happened (in the mind of God and therefore otherwise) – all happening to plan, why be troubled by criticism and opposition? If justice, peace and love are absent – so be it, it’s fulfillment and “meant to be”. War is about God’s battle in a story that unfolds like we’re watching a movie. Memories held can fuel resentment and drive division and discrimination. Confidence in this backdrop, thankfully not lived so, by so very many/most… is shared by Islam, Augustine shaped Christianity, eclectic esoteric new-age thinking and the science that, doesn’t just doubt free-will exists, that all notions or definitions of on-going defeat must be dismissed. In this, reading-history-retrospectively-revision, hope becomes entirely contingent on a future set in our biology, or if there’s God and the Bible is his/her word, their readings and teachings and therefore – world-view. The central controllers and popes may or may not have such faith but the following masses are fed (zealed up the aim), comfort and assurances that progress is on the way and underway, regardless of anything to the contrary. It’s not only a matter of time before but realities construction that doesn’t include God in this realm or reality and is so beyond there’s no real relationship with it. The solar system and the clock is for us, with God – somewhere else.
Decades proceeding 1948 were fertile for new developments upon the traditional post-Augustine view. The battle had been a Protestant awakening to Pope-the-Anti-Christ, with unfolding periods, a retrospectively-read, all-history, fulfillment of Biblical prophecy.
Morphing off into 'Israel the key' coincided with the new shifts and Pentecostalism/later emerging as Charismatic renewal, which took in much of the church. By the 1980's the Charismatic experience was soaking up the final converts to gifts and a second baptism -- this one in the Spirit.
Shook up those resistant but they maintained an evangelical wing. Capital E and increasingly viewing the hand-waving, chorus-wailing lot, as off with the fairies. These non-Charismatics are mixed on the Zionism front but have maintained a strong opposing presence.
Apart from some conspicuous exceptions -- primarily ones who hold to time not timelessness -- the charismatic church had their new proxy concern and must-protect cause. Required the widespread church-promotion of repentance from Gentile over Hebrew thinking, recognition of a missing chord 'our Jewish roots'.

Having reached deafening levels of intensity by emotional epic ‘Honest Women’, Doll By Doll’s collective emotional dam finally burst on a devastatingly savage ‘Palace Of Love’, which careered and raged until it reached an immense wall of feedback that felt like the floor was cracking apart under pressure from demons pushing up from below and the hordes of hell were raining in.
