Praying for Israel or Preying on Israel?

1 And when the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mount, the people gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him: 'Up, make us a god who shall go before us; for as for this Moses, the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we know not what is become of him.'

2 And Aaron said unto them: 'Break off the golden rings, which are in the ears of your wives, of your sons, and of your daughters, and bring them unto me.'

3 And all the people broke off the golden rings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron.

4 And he received it at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, and made it a molten calf; and they said: 'This is thy god, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.'

These same words that the wicked Erev Rav declared in when they built Israel a false god and provoked them into worshipping it are being repeated once again. Israel is now the target of a mega-proselytizing blitz, the Behold Your G-d campaign by Jews for Jesus. This 5 year campaign will invade Israel with bus and billboard banners, newspaper advertisements and a full-time army of missionaries. In our own homeland, we are having Jesus rammed down our throat!
The problem is not really with Christians as they are only fulfilling their religious obligations to 'save our souls'. The real tragedy is that Jews do not have the courage to ban this type of religious harassment and end this threat to Jewish souls. A legal opinion prepared by the Justice Ministry decided that a bill to ban missionary activity in Israel would 'undermine religious freedom of expression'. To this, the head of counter-missionary organization, Yad L'achim, Rabbi Shalom Dov Lifshitz, argues:

"Just as the Knesset saw fit to draft laws against the enemies of our people in areas related to the well-being, security and future of the Jewish people in the state of Israel, so too lawmakers must draft legislation against the enemies of our people, the missionaries, who want to destroy the remnant and memory of the Jewish people and convert them to Christianity."
"There is no doubt that if the security forces came upon people who incited to violence against the state, they would use the law to act against them and not be concerned about impinging on their freedom of expression. In our view, this must be the attitude missionaries who seek the spiritual destruction of Jews and thus to harm the soul of the Jewish nation."
The sin of shemad is so severe that we are commanded to give up our lives rather than to transgress it. How is it possible, then, to allow the continuation of shemad, when previous generation would fast at hearing news of a Jew who had converted, and here they are converting thousand of Jews and no one says a word."

Israel receives millions of dollars every year from various Evangelical organizations. Evangelicals claim that they simply want to 'bless' Israel and that their gifts come with no strings attached. It is time that Israel learns that there is no such thing as a free lunch! This friendship and funds comes at the cost of Jews converting to Christianity in the Jewish state.
All is not lost, however. While the government has sold out to Christian money, there remains good and pure Jews committed to defending our people from these parasites. After missionaries distributed their poisonous leaflets in the predominantly religious town of Or Yehuda, the mayor, Uzi Aharon, drove around town and asked on loudspeaker for people to turn over the material to yeshiva students. Hundreds of these 'New' Testaments were then burnt in a lot next to a local synagogue. "And you shall exterminate evil from your midst"! Thank G-d for Jews like these who are zealous for Torah and Am Yisrael!

Please, say no to all false gods.

"Shemah Yisrael, HaShem Elokeinu, HaShem Echad"!

These people preying on Jews are reprobates. No offense to Christians posting on this site but to use a phrase from YOUR New Testament, I personally believe that anyone preying on Jews has a "reprobate mind." Look the term up if you've never heard of it.

That's the strongest word I can use without swearing.
