Yep. It's kind of strange because if you look at fundies like Jack Chick, they believe that Israel's existence as a Jewish state is essential for their vision of the end-times scenario, but at the same time all Jews are going to hell if they don't accept Christ as their saviour. Chick has one tract where he attempts to show how historically, God has punished nations that have treated the Jews poorly and rewarded nations that have treated them well. Then he has another tract calling on Jews to accept Christ or burn in hell for eternity.

Catholicism is the only denomination I know of that does not believe Jews need to convert to Christianity to be saved.
