Probably because Anti-Christ is chilling in a coffin like Nosferatu somewhere on this Ark, waiting to be awakened. Evangelicals, perhaps forgetting how Luther thought about the Jews, are big champions of Israel.
Whenever the Jews want to gain more favor from "Christians" they play this routine of still being like the Old Testament Jews. That makes a lot of Christians, even Catholics, think that they are somehow part of a valid religion. The reality is that they have nothing to do with Old Testament Jews, that line of prophets having ended with Christ, and their holy book is the Talmud. They went from being somewhat recalcitrant, stubborn and difficult children of God to being part of a new Satanic religion, whose essence is that it rejects the son of God. It's not the same.
