Dear fellow Israeli Jews, your children are being tackled by missionaries. JewishIsrael states this both figuratively and literally.
Hotel Gilgal is a missionary run hotel, managed by notorious Israeli missionary Jacob Damkani, along with his wife, Elisheva. If you want to know what Hotel Gilgal is about, you won’t gather much by reading the hotel’s current seemingly innocent promotional page. So JewishIsrael suggests you read the hotel’s original promo page, when they didn’t mince words as to what the hotel is really all about. As the page states, one of the goals of the hotel is “to bring the Gospel to the Jews first.”
For those of you not familiar with this Christian theological concept, Damkani and company are simply advocating what Paul states in their Christian Greek Testament, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” – Roman 1:16 (KJV)
Maybe it’s time for us Jews to no longer be ashamed to demand from our fellow Jews, whether it be the IFL in this case, or the Government of Israel in general, that measures be taken to put an end to the year-round Jew tackling season in Israel, and to finally establish norms and laws which clearly state that missionaries should no longer be tolerated here, that those of them seeking to destroy Jewish identity should no longer be welcome here – not by rabbis, nor by community leaders, nor by business entrepreneurs, nor by football league commissioners.
Parents – and Grandparents - Speak Up!
We are living in Israel and watching our children playing football (and baseball, too!) with missionaries and the “teams” they set us up with!
What can be done? JewishIsrael suggests that readers should contact the IFL administration and politely protest that our Jewish children are being subject to such events and collaborations. Remember, IFL management may have been as unaware until now about what the Hotel Gilgal is all about, as are many of JewishIsrael’s supportive readers.
JewishIsrael also recommends that readers send their polite but firm protests to Israel’s governing body, the Knesset, regarding Israel’s toothless anti-missionary laws. The Knesset members' contact page can be found here. It’s time everyone from the Prime Minister down, heard us Jews speaking up, on this issue and many others.
Readers many also want to contact Israel National News and let them know that they seem to be missing this relevant information in their news report of what otherwise seems to be just another sports event in the land of Israel.
