Message to True Christian Friends of Jews
by Steven Shamrak
There are many different Christian churches, groups and movements. Some call themselves Zionists or good and true Christians. Many of them are deeply antagonistic toward mainstream Catholics and Anglicans. And they disassociate themselves from the actions of their church in the past.
Just recently, the Pope, leader of 1.1
We have not been hearing condemnations
made by "true
Christians" of the anti-Semitic behaviour and
Israel-bashing by their Christian brothers in the past and the present. Most of
them are silent about Arab terrorism in

From the Jewish point of view it is difficult to distinguish the true friends among the Christian groups. Most of them claim friendship but actually have sinister motives. The Messianic Christians, for example, consider themselves as 'good Christians'. This is in spite of the fact that the main objective of the Messianic church is to prove the validity of Christian teachings by converting confused Jewish souls to Christianity. They believe, as many before them, that the increase in the number of Jewish Christians is an indication that the Church is G-d's true religion. In the past the forceful conversion of Jews was a preferred method, but proved ineffective.
Unfortunately, many Christian groups and organisations still believe and practice the old
traditional theology of hate or misguided envy toward Jews. They ignore the
fact that conversion of Jews to Christianity is actually against the will of
the G-d and undermines the most important Christian doctrine of the Second
coming. It diminishes the chance of all Jews to come to
I respect any belief system as long as they do not discriminate against others. At the same time, I demand the same respect toward my people, our traditions and our rights from others. True friendship is a two way street.

Shalit, Grapel - and Pollard?
Rumors - or perhaps only hopes - flew that Jonathan Pollard will follow Gilad Shalit and Ilan Grapel and be freed from his U.S. prison soon. Officials in the Pollard camp recently have expressed hopes that President Barack Obama will free Pollard this summer soon. (One may wonder, how many American spies Israel must arrest in order to gain freedom for Pollard?)
Endless Demands but not Commitment to Peace
Days after the mass release of hundreds of terrorists in exchange for Gilad Shalit, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has released a surprise demand, and is calling on Israel to release 1,000 more.
Better to Kill a Terrorist than Call Police
Rabbi Yossi Elitzur wrote in a Halachic ruling that should someone encounter a terrorist, it is preferable to shoot and kill them rather than call the police or attempt to apprehend the person in question, since he may be released in a future prisoner swap.
International Anti-Semites Funding of Israeli Leftist Groups
The British government gives over half a million pounds Sterling annually, funding Israeli political organisations - nearly all of them leftist, like Peace Now - but gives nothing at all to groups in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, and other Arab countries, who have been struggling to replace the dictatorships running their countries with democratic regimes. (Undermining of Jewish democracy is not a problem for UK anti-Semitic bigots, but they fear Arab tyrants’ retaliation!)
Enemy within Must also be Removed
Dozens of Arab citizens of Israel held a demonstration in which they called to kidnap IDF soldiers in order to free more of the terrorists in Israel’s prisons. K David Rotem (Yisrael Beiteinu) slammed the Thursday protest and said those who had called to kidnap soldiers should have their citizenship revoked and should be deported. “The calls to kidnap soldiers emphasize yet again that we need to link citizenship to loyalty. These inciters are not worthy to be part of Israeli society.” (Jews were always questioned about their loyalty in other countries. It is time to question loyalty of Arab Israelis and free country from enemies within!)
Enforce Law in Arab Sector Too
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at Cabinet
session that police must enforce the law in Arab and other minority sectors
just as they do in the Jewish sector. "There are not two states," the
Prime Minister said. "There is no state within a state. We live in one
state - the State of Israel is Jewish and democratic." (It is a well known secret that police avoids ‘aggravation’

Hamas rulers of Gaza have issued new regulations for visitors who intend to visit the region. Foreigners must obtain a visa to enter the territory. The rules will apply to most international aid workers and activists, according to the announcement. Foreign journalists will apparently face a separate set of procedures, which have yet to be determined. PA and PLO Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, however, will still be unable to enter the territory, with or without a visa, as his security cannot be guaranteed. Abbas has been unable to enter Gaza since the end of the bloody militia war in which Hamas seized control of the region in June 2007. (How many fake Arab nations are needed to destroy Israel?)
US to Sell F-16 to Egypt in Grapel Deal
Egypt has come out the big winner in negotiations for the release of US-Israeli national Ilan Grapel. On Israel's side 25 Egyptian prisoners will be transferred into Egyptian custody. But according to Egyptian military expert General Sameh Sayf al-Yazal, the United States has agreed to a much bigger deal: America will sell its much-acclaimed F-16 fighter to Cairo. (Egypt has money to buy planes but not building democracy. Who are those planes going to be used against?)
Saudi Incitement and Never Ending Terror
1. Saudi Arabia's controversial Islamist and preacher, Sheikh Awad al Qarni, offered a bounty of $100,000 for the kidnapping of any IDF in 'Palestine' who can be used as leverage to force Israel to release more terrorists from its prisons. 2. Terrorists from Gaza fired a Grad missile towards southern Israel late Wednesday evening.
Disengagement Made Hiding Shalit Easy
Hamas interior minister Fathi Hamad said Israel's 2005 "Disengagement" from Gaza, "helped us conceal Gilad Shalit for five years." Hamad was referring to the absence of an Israeli military presence on the ground in Gaza, which would have been able to control movement in the enclave while having freedom of movement in searching for Shalit.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights expresses concern that shipping prisoners (killers and hard-core terrorists) abroad is in breach of international law. Under international humanitarian law, it is illegal to forcibly transfer war detainees or deport them to another country against their will. The Red Cross conducted confidential interviews with all 477 Palestinian detainees. Colville said that the UN human rights office had "continuing concerns about the thousands of Palestinians still detained or imprisoned by Israel." Under international humanitarian law, it is illegal to forcibly transfer war detainees or deport them to another country against their will.
Juan Pedro Schaerer, the head of the ICRC delegation for Israel and the territories said "And we regret that hundreds of families of Palestinians from Gaza held in Israeli places of detention were punished by being prevented from visiting their detained relatives." (They were not concerned that for five years Gilad had no communication with his family and was even denied visit from ICRC. But they are ‘extremely’ concerned that 40 killers of Jews, out 477 released terrorists, were sent far away from Israel. What a bunch of shameless and ugly anti-Semitic idiots!)
