(IsraelNN.com) Head of the Lituanian Haredi religious community, Rabbi Yosef Shalom Elyashiv, has issued a ruling prohibiting the taking of monies from the Christian-associated Friendship Fund, headed by Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein.
In his ruling, he writes that organizations receiving money from the fund are guilty of ignoring the prohibition of idolatry, and are assisting missionary activities in the future, "Sadly, we have heard that some institutions and relief organizations have already failed in this regard," he wrote.

MYTH 1. John Hagee is not a missionary.
"The mission of John Hagee Ministries is to aggressively fulfill the commission that Jesus Christ gave to his followers to go into the world and make disciples of all people . Our purpose is to bring the lost to Jesus Christ and to build up and encourage those who are already believers. We pledge to our viewers & supporters to take The Gospel to all the World and to all Generations."
“We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God. We believe in His substitutionary death for all men, His resurrection, and His eventual return to judge the world.”
“We believe that evangelism is the obligation of every follower of Jesus Christ. The Lord commands us to go out and make disciples of all the earth. We believe that each person is first responsible to evangelism in their own family as the Holy Spirit leads them and gives them the ability.”
MYTH 2. John Hagee is dual covenant.
Hagee, Falwell deny endorsing 'dual covenant'
Mar. 2, 2006
JPost.com Staff , THE JERUSALEM POST
Pastors John Hagee and Jerry Falwell have both denied a report in The Jerusalem Post earlier this week that they embrace the "dual covenant" theology, which holds that Jews are saved through a special relationship with God and so need not become Christians to get to heaven.
In a statement to the Post, the Texas-based televangelist Hagee said that neither he nor Southern Baptist pastor Falwell "believe or teach Dual Covenant."
Hagee added that he had "made it a practice for 25 years not to target Jews for conversion" at any "Night to Honor Israel" events. If Jews "inquire about our faith at a later time, we give them a full scriptural presentation of redemption."
Hagee has spent 50 years of his life convincing people to follow a false religion and a false god. He has made millions from selling a lie. Missionizing is a Hagee family legacy. His grandfather went to America from Germany to evangelize the Indians. Hagee has trained his son to follow in his footsteps.
The Hagee HeritageLike Father, Like Son
by Linda Owen
A century before the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the first John Hagee came to the New World from Germany with Moravians who sought to evangelize the Indians. In time Hagee's second son continued his work. Neither of them could have foreseen the heritage they were beginning; but over three centuries later, a chain of 47 Hagees have passed the mantle to their second son and sometimes his bothers as well.
The 48th Hagee to work for the Lord's harvest is Matthew Hagee, 27-year-old son of John Hagee, pastor at Cornerstone Church. "I can't remember a time in my life when I didn't want to be a preacher," he says. "People passed it off as me wanting to be like my father, but it's more than that. I associate my calling with Jeremiah 1:5: "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you—' There was no one moment when I said, "Yes, Lord, I'll follow.' But my calling is very real. It's always been in my blood."

Knesset Member Shlomo Molla (Kadima) says that he has retuned the full sum of donation he received from the Jewish Voice organization.
This week it was revealed that the Christian messianic group donated $17,000 to Molla's election campaign and to needy Ethiopians, but that the funds had not reached their destination. MK Molla said Wednesday, "I made a personal decision this morning to return the full amount of the donations so that my integrity will not be questioned." (Amnon Meranda)
