All quotes are from the Jerusalem Post. Note, I did NOT write the article.
"Many Evangelical Christian organizations in Israel, with support from Evangelical Christians around the world, are providing food and other assistance to thousands of Israeli immigrants and poor families."

Frijoles, what you have demonstrated once again is that your religion teaches HATE.
Certainly the Jew who wrote the article in the Jerusalem Post is NOT a member of Judaism. How do I know this? It is a HONEST report. Had he been a blind DUMB sheep like you he would NEVER have written it.
God BLESS him ABUNDANTLY.
Finally, intelligence have REJECTED your religion. Only the deceived remain with it.
How long will the deception last?
Time will tell.
now you are in reruns (as it you couldn't be a worse waste of time)

A Jew is a Jew is a Jew. However, Judaism as a religion does not regard Jesus as the Messiah. As I said earlier, they are still waiting for Messiah to return. Messianic Jews believe in Jesus as the Messiah. As confirmed by an actual Jew earlier (scroll up), it's not viewed as a branch of Judaism by those who actually practice the religion. However, I'm NOT a Jew so perhaps you should go ask one. I'm simply going by what I've read and what I've been told. Also I'm well aware of which Tree my branch of faith has grown from. I really don't need you to educate me on that fact.
I see you are experiencing a flavor of Hughbe

the term "alternate reality" comes to mind - though I perhaps "personal reality" might be a better term

I dont know about you, but I see no evidence for the truthfulness of the first statement. Questioned, maybe, but certainly not dismantled by the current administration.

A few years ago the support by the American religious right wing was unquestionably accepted by the Israeli public. Now it is being increasingly questioned. Not because any Israeli listens to the arguments by us American moderates and liberals. They don't usually. But because the Israelis themselves are seeing the folly in it.

I quipped that Hughbe is stepping into waters too foreign for him because of two reasons. He constantly demonstrates no capacity to understand American politics. And he obviously has no ability to understand Israeli politics or society. Therefore he has no ability to understand this issue - as it requires an understanding of both.

Christians march in Jerusalem in support of Israel

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/huff-wires/2012...

"Evangelical Christians are known as strong supporters of Israel, providing financial help and political backing, especially in the U.S. Even so, their hard-line views toward Palestinians and suspect religious motivations make some moderate Israelis and Jews abroad uncomfortable....

....The relationship between evangelical Christians and Israel isn't without its wrinkles.

Many Israelis are troubled by what they suspect is the source of the unqualified support – a belief by some evangelical groups in an apocalyptic battle between good and evil in which Jesus returns, and Jews either accept Christianity or perish.

...A ultra-Orthodox Jewish former mayor of Jerusalem, Uri Lupolianski, refused to accept funds from evangelical Christians for fear of their proselytizing. His successor, the current mayor, Nir Barkat, has revoked the policy, but some skepticism still persists.

Moderate Israelis are also uneasy with evangelical backing, as the Christians back the hard-line nationalist Israeli camp that opposes giving up control of any of the West Bank, though the majority of Israelis favor creation of a Palestinian state there, and even Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a veteran hawk, has grudgingly accepted that...."

HughBe--- Correct and it is one of LIES, DECEPTION and HATE learnt from your religion/Judaism.

Please read and EXPLAIN the meaning of the quotes with focus on the capitalized words. Tell me if they are FALSE. They were taken from the Jerusalem Post.

1."Israel’s GREATEST ASSET and best friend By EARL"

2." Evangelicals use their political, financial and spiritual LEVERAGE to HELP Israel WITHSTAND WHATEVER attack might come next."

3."In recent years, however, a groundswell of support for Israel has arisen, creating a new and POWERFUL FRIEND for Israel in the form of EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS. From all over the world these Evangelical Christian believers, including many Americans, are proud to be labeled as “Christian Zionists.”"

4."WITHOUT the Evangelical Christian community STANDING in the BREACH with both PRAYER and action, the United States may have entered a free-fall in its foreign policy that would have ended in a far more hostile environment for Israel."

5."The longstanding tradition of the US being Israel’s closest ally is arguably being dismantled by policies detrimental to Israel. But there is ONE ALLY that is STEADFAST... the Evangelical Christian."

6."Many Evangelical Christian organizations in Israel, with support from Evangelical Christians around the world, are PROVIDING FOOD and other assistance to THOUSANDS of Israeli immigrants and POOR families."

7.Others(Evangelicals) have provided portable concrete BOMB SHELTERS to PROTECT Israeli residents living along the Gaza border and elsewhere in Israel

In closing my BOY, what an ENEMY of the Jews these Evangelical Christians are. The truth is they are NOT anti-Semitic as you have made them out to be and all of your comments and efforts to take away from and to foster HATE is a reflection of who you are and the forces that shaped you.

Reminds me of the Twilight episode "To Serve Man."

"The day arrives for Mr. Chambers's excursion to the Kanamits' planet. Just as he mounts the spaceship's boarding stairs, his staffer Patty appears. He waves, smiling, but she runs toward him in great agitation—and is held back by a Kanamit guard. "Mr. Chambers," Patty cries, "don't get on that ship! The rest of the book To Serve Man, it's... it's a cookbook!" Chambers tries to run back down the spaceship's stairs, but a Kanamit blocks him, the stairs retract, and the ship immediately lifts off."

Justsay--A Jew is a Jew is a Jew.

HughBe--- Correct and no one can change that. The religious CLUB called Judaism does not have the power to change that fact and this is contrary to what they so FOOLISHLY believe.

HughBe--- The reason does NOT matter what is important is that EVANGELICAL Christians are Israel's "ONE ally that is STEADFAST", according to the Journalist and Jew who wrote those words.

Put it this way your IMAGINED reason is of no consequence and what is important is the reality of the SUPPORT to Israel.

"Homer Simpson is also a SOURCE of wisdom"
Anything and everything can be a source of wisdom.

Take the wise words or wise actions from any source, even from the most unlikely and insignificant, and enrich yourself and evolve in real time.

If you think that scripture is the fountain-head of wisdom then you're sadly mistaken since most of scriptural teachings are junk and can easily be proven to be so.

Never make the mistake of thinking that any scripture is the last word on truth or existence.

The last word is yet to be spoken.

SEMITIC IDEA OF GOD:

What the Middle Easterners meant by G-d or God is a being of a particular plane of the Manifestation.

The Absolute is very different.

YHVH/El, Allah, Baal, Molech and other beings are G-d or God to various groups of people.
