Playing a precarious numbers game, David Ha’ivri has posted yet another ode to evangelical love at the expense of his own people.
In response, JewishIsrael reminds Mr. Ha’ivri of the following:
- American Jews were not able to thump their Bibles in Christian dominated lands and so they were forced to find other avenues to express their spirituality, or to down-play it or to bury it.
- Missionaries do thump their bibles and have unceasingly directed their fervor at Jews, so our people naturally recoil when they hear “evangelese”.
- If David and other Judea and Samaria leaders continue on this path, they will offer up the land that they so love and cherish to their Christian friends on a silver platter.
- It would be better for David to find a way to effectively communicate and speak to our alienated brethren, because right now Ha’ivri’s attitude is only contributing to the widening gap.
