No Strings Attached

“He had recently become more religious,” the reporters explained, as they described the second Jerusalem Muslim who attempted to use a bulldozer to murder Jews.


The Israeli public is already used to terror attacks in the name of Allah. These attacks are euphemistically described as “nationalistically motivated.”  But everybody knows in whose name the terrorists stage their murderous assaults. The Arabs who piloted the Boeing jet into the Twin Towers did not yell “Long live Saudi Arabia!” and the murderous tractor driver did not declare, “Long live the Arab nation!” Every Israeli knows what Arabs shout as they murder. They shout the Muslim motto, Allah hu akbar. They act in the name of their god. Their terrorism is not nationalistically motivated. It is religiously motivated.


As opposed to the Left, the nationalist camp – especially Israel’s national religious camp – is capable of understanding and dealing with this fact. But it is specifically this camp that is rapidly falling under the influence of a religious threat even more dangerous than Islam. It is specifically the nationalist and religious nationalist public that has been opening the door to Christianity and allowing it to slowly but surely influence the Israeli reality.


The Christian conquest is much more dangerous than the Muslim conquest because it is not direct. It is not violent. Embracing and supportive, it connects with Israel against the Muslim enemy. It supports a Jewish Land of Israel in its entirety – even speaking up for the sanctity of the connection between the Nation of Israel, the Land of Israel and the Torah of Israel. It just forgets to specify which Nation of Israel and which Torah.


Because they hide their motives and offer large sums of money to causes that are important and often crucial for Israel, it is easy to become ensnared. It took me a bit of time to realize their true intentions and, in the meantime, I also received a small number of contributions from Christian sources. They insinuated that they were Noahides (non-Jews who have accepted the seven commandments that God gave to Noah). They declared that they were not part of any church and that the crucifix offends them. They simply forgot to mention that for them, God is actually the Christian deity and the Nation of Israel is actually one that believes in that deity. Thank God it took me a relatively short time to figure out what was going on, and I cut off all ties with them.


The Christians are careful to hide their true intentions. They will not usually display the crucifix and will not mention the name of their deity in conversation with Jews. They simply “love” us – “no strings attached.” But their goal is clear: to immigrate to Israel by the millions, to become citizens, and to convert us all, God forbid.


On the surface, why should we care? What difference does it make if huge sums of money for Israeli welfare causes are from Christian sources? “When Moshiach comes, we’ll ask him what religion he is,” the cynics wink. But this is not a matter that can be laughed off. Money talks. The organizations that feed the hungry children of Israel will eventually control their minds.

Slowly but surely, more and more Christian institutions are being built in Israel. They have infiltrated almost every Jewish organization and they have infiltrated the political Right. Acting MKs and candidates for the Knesset from all the rightist parties have been busy running to churches in the U.S., hugging the most despicable missionaries, and giving their activities in Israel and their beliefs the legitimacy so crucial to success. Big money from these groups has been blinding the eyes of many Likud candidates, Orange MKs and rabbis – even strictly kosher haredi rabbis.


It is hard to blame the Likud candidates for taking their money. If well-known rabbis and MKs with large skullcaps and beards see nothing wrong with Christian support, why should the less religiously knowledgeable Likudnik be more stringent than they are?


Missionary activity in Israel is growing by leaps and bounds. But what mayor or politician will fight the missionaries after receiving millions from the very same “Israel-loving” organizations?
It is astounding how a history of 2,000 years of bloodshed evaporates in the face of large sums of cash. The children of Beit El will not pay the price of this abomination any time soon. The price will first be paid by the children in poor neighborhoods and in families whose Jewish identity is not well developed.


But all Jews are responsible for one another. If we do not open our eyes and reject these Christian groups and their money, we will all eventually pay the price.
