No Christmas War in Israel

Bill O’Reilly eat your heart out, because while “the War on Christmas” rages in America, secular Israelis –on a government level – have no problem stepping on Jewish sensitivities in the Jewish State. Official declarations of “Merry Christmas”, “Season’s Greetings”, and “Happy New Year “ are ringing forth from Jerusalem, and all of the state’s apparatchiks seem to be getting into… Continue

Evangelical Missionary Building Boon in Jerusalem

Jewish settlements in Judea and Shomron may be frozen, but Christian missionaries are enjoying a real building boon in and around Jerusalem.

Prime property has recently been leased, sold, and permits for expansion granted, to evangelizing ministries and institutions.

Christian Fundamentalist Fringe Group Hijacks Hatikvah

Westboro Baptist Church is a way-over-the-top independent church group, and people of all faiths - as well as those without faith - rightfully love to hate this hate group.

What about Moslems? Don't they convert Jews to Islam and what can we do about it?

Anyone who has looked on Youtube has seen a variety of missionary styled testimonies of former Jews who have converted to islam. They are similar to the "testimonies" used by xtian apostates. My question is why is there (hardly) any refutations of the Islamic religion as there are of the xtian one?

In Israel there are probably MORE jews converting to Islam than to xtianity! Shouldn't someone at least make a few video's showing the fallacies,…
