In an interview on The Glenn Beck Program Thursday evening, Rabbi Raphael Shore revealed to Glenn Beck who he believes to be the Islamic State's No. 1 target, and it's not Jews or Israel.
"I say to [Christians], 'Do you know who the No. 1 enemy of these radical Muslims is?' And they always think it's the Jews, or Israel, and it's not — it's the Christians," Shore said.
Shore told Beck he believes Jews are no longer the "big threat" in the current situation, adding that the Jewish population is only approximately 14 million compared to Christianity, "the largest religion in the world."
As of 2010, nearly one third — 2.2 billion people — of the world's population identified as Christian. According to recent data from the Pew Research Center, Islam is on track to be nearly equal in size to the Christian faith by 2050, and eclipse it by 2070.
"Christianity is the No. 1 religion of the world — the largest religion, the strongest religion," Shore said. "It's the religion of America. Who's the threat?"
The rabbi went on to say radical Islamists are determined to elevate the Muslim faith to be the No. 1 religion of the world and, ultimately, he said, "They don't want there to be other religions on the planet."
