Mr Chafets is one of the good Jews, who believes that a political alliance between Jews and Evangelical Christians will bring about Armageddon and the 1000 year reign of Christ before the Final Judgement. Good times.
The alliance exists because of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and because we are at war with those who oppose us.
Although Chafets is not a religious Jew, he still claims to be more Jewish than Stephen, despite the fact that Stephen is a practicing Judeo-Christian.
