Every time I think the xian problem in this country can't get any worse, it does. The following article was posted on the ICEJ (International Christian Embassy Jerusalem) website
Messianic Jews in Israel launch special pre-army program

Israeli believers see civil duty as an religious obligationThe IDF is drafting thousands of new recruits into its ranks this summer, including about 150 highly motivated Messianic Jewish believers, some 28 of whom recently participated in a pre-army prep program started by Messianic veterans called Netsor (Hebrew for "to guard").

For Messianic Jews, military service in the IDF is not only a mandatory civil duty, it is a religious obligation right out of the New Testament. The program teaches the young people about to enter the IDF what the Bible says about military service, including the admonition of Romans (13:1-7) not to resist political authority, because it is "the ordinance of God."

Colossians (3:22-23) also teaches that a believer in Jesus must strive to be a faithful servant of one's superiors, not for personal aggrandizement but to serve God.

"I am a soldier of God," Boris, a young Israeli believer headed for an elite combat unit, told The Jerusalem Post. "I will do my best during my service in the IDF to serve God spiritually and physically.

The more things change, the more they stay the same

I found this in an archive. It's from 2003, but still relevant.


A reply to Jews who praise the Christian Zionists:

As a Jew, I am frustrated and appalled when I hear fellow Jews extolling the virtues of so-called “Christian Zionists”, George Bush or the American democratic model. As a former American and a former Christian, I am well acquainted with all aspects of this modern-day Rome and in my opinion it can best be characterized by three words: arrogance, ignorance, and hypocrisy. Hardly something for Jews to aspire to or stand in awe of.

While I’m sure all level-headed, realistic, and pragmatic peoples will strongly disagree with me, I have to say that in my opinion, America represents the single greatest existential threat to Israel and the Jewish people today. The holocaust of "love" rolls on as the assimilation rate of Jewish adults between the ages of 26-30 in Denver, Colorado is reported at 90%. And America is losing no opportunity, with the help of the Zoinist enterprise, to remake Israel in her image while turning her into a vassal state.

It is no accident of language when the media constantly relates to Pax Americana. Israel has the ability to defend herself against her enemies in the immediate vicinity of her borders, but who is it that stands in her way, defending the access routes to Arab oil? Who sends daily reminders of the arm-twisting and outright blackmail that awaits any Israeli intransigency to toe the American line?

No one can accuse the liberal, Christian-slanted Jerusalem Post of being right-wing, but two articles in the Friday, Sept. 20th edition are quite telling:

Rumsfeld to Israel: Don't retaliate to Iraqi attack

“US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has urged Israel not to respond militarily to an Iraqi strike, saying in rare public statement on the issue, it would be in Israel's "best interests" not to get involved. “

Averting strategic disaster in Iraq
Caroline B. Glick's COLUMN ONE

“In stark contrast, today the US is clearly publicly linking the settlement of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the toppling of Saddam Hussein's regime. In his address to the UN General Assembly last Thursday, President George W. Bush twice mentioned "Palestine" and stated "America stands committed to an independent and democratic Palestine."

For Torah Jews, the Zionist entity is a disaster. Thanks to Zionism, the return to Zion has become a nightmare as Russian gangs of rapists prey on Jewish women in the streets of Ashqelon and Ashdod and missionaries prey on Jewish children in the streets of Jerusalem. A “Zionist” government arms the enemies of the Jews and pays them to have ever more children to replace those martyred for the Muslim jihad. The great Hasbara Campaign appeals to the democratic sensibilities of the present-day Greeks and Romans and justifies Israel’s existence on the basis of its being the “only democracy in the Middle-East.” And this is precisely why those of the West admire us and those of the East hate us. The Christian Zionists love us because we are a reflection of them and they are narcissistic to the core.

Democracy=Israeli suicide as the Arab citizens of the State of Israel use their rights of citizenship to destroy the Jewish State. If Israel is to continue to exist, this situation will not be able to continue. What will be the backlash on the day after Israel ceases to be a democracy in the tolerant, pluralistic American mold?

While Ishmael playfully fires arrows in our direction, Esav falls on us with hugs and kisses. Both are jealous and treacherous and challenge our rightful position in the world. Most thinking Jews today have their heads on straight as regards the Arab threat, but remain woefully naive in regard to that posed by Christianity.

The only Gentiles who are true and trustworthy friends of Israel are those who have given up their false religions to become Bnei Noach---true righteous Gentiles. There is no practicing Christian who is not influenced by his false interpretation of the Hebrew scriptures. Speaking as one who has literally been there, the “love” expressed by the Christian Zionists is a spillover from their ecstatic and gleeful anticipation of the fulfillment of the Hebrew prophets as they understand them. By backing and funding the return of the Jews to Israel, they believe they are hastening the return of their own messiah, now long dead and turned to dust. I am sickened by the admission of fellow Jews who claim to understand this, but see no reason why they should not accept the money anyway. When these loving Christians discover the truth, do the Jews care what will come of it? As one young recent olah chadasha told me, “That’s not my concern.” Does the term “money-grubbing” offend? For shame!

The new testament describes a future leader of the Jews who will be the Christians’ “anti-christ.” Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson have already identified him as “a male Jew who is alive at this very moment.” If you are still around when a deliverer arises in Zion as Moses did in Egypt, you will witness how quickly “love” can turn to hate. The Christians who are hugging and kissing the Jews today truly believe they will all be caught up into heaven with their dead messiah when that day arrives, but when they realize the awful truth, pity any Jews who still remain in America.

I find it quite ironic that the Christian Zionists love to come up to Jerusalem to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles, as they call it. They see themselves as the fulfillment of Zechariah’s prophecy and it is further proof to them that they are bringing about the end of days and the return of the dead messiah.

These clueless Christians have so little understanding of the Hebrew prophets that they have unwittingly identified themselves as part of the ultimate enemy of the Jewish people. According to the prophet:

“It shall be that all who are left over from all the nations who had invaded Jerusalem will come up every year to worship the King Hashem, Master of Legions, and to celebrate the festival of Succot.”

They do not understand that this is a matter of humiliation for them. As members of those people who tried to bring about the ultimate final solution, they will be required to make a public spectacle of themselves as they bow before the True King and submit themselves to His sovereignty.

Today, they boisterously parade around the streets of Jerusalem, grinning from ear to ear in joyful conviction of the rightness of their path and groveling Jews are aiding and abetting their smug and arrogant self-deception rather than tactfully and diplomatically performing their role as priests to the nations and setting them straight. To the Christian Zionists and the Jews who love them, I would like to repeat the words of my forefathers:

“The enemies of Judah and Benjamin heard that the people of the exile were building a Sanctuary for Hashem, G-d of Israel. They approached Zerubbabel and the heads of the families and said to them, “Let us build with you, for, like you, we will seek your G-d; it is to Him that we have been sacrificing since the days of Esar-haddon…but Zerubbabel, along with Jeshua and the rest of the family heads of Israel said to them, ‘It is not for you together with us to build a Temple for our G-d: rather we, by ourselves, will build [it]…’ ” (Ezra 4:1-3)

They Never Take a Rest

It won't hurt, in their minds, if the children playing on these playgrounds will grow up with kind feelings towards xians because of their "generosity." Their long-term goal is that these chlidren will one day be open to hearing about their "gospel" as a result.

Christian-Jewish Fellowship to Build Israel Playgrounds
Reported: 19:19 PM - Jul/01/09

( The International Fellowship of Christians and Jews (IFCJ) is joining forces with Na'amat, Emunah and WIZO to contribute to the construction of 51 playgrounds at 22 day care centers in Israel, JPost reported. The IFCJ committed NIS 1.4 million toward the project.

"[We] are happy to have the opportunity to contribute to the children of Israel. The Fellowship will continue to initiate partnerships which will strengthen Israeli society," said IFCJ founder and President Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein. He said the IFCJ chose to sponsor playgrounds because they promote healthy development. The IFCJ annually donates close to $60 million to Israeli causes, particularly to poor neighborhoods that lack adequate infrastructure. It is funded by donations from pro-Israel Evangelical Christians.
