Israel Wants Christians to Fund Non-Jewish ‘Birthright’ Program

Israeli Tourism Minister Uzi Landau says that he hopes to create a program modeled after Taglit-Birthright Israel trips for young Evangelical Christians, as part of an effort to increase Christian tourism in the Jewish state.

“The Christians have a problem with their next generation too,” Landau said, Ynet reported. “We are looking to get closer to this public in order to generate tourism and support for Israel when they return to their homeland, become our ambassadors and view Israel not through CNN’s eyes.”

The Birthright program, which in January celebrated its 13th anniversary, has brought more than 350,000 young Jews on free 10-day trips to Israel. Landau hopes that the Christian program modeled after Birthright would be funded by private philanthropists— like the Jewish program—and by the Christian community.

    No.

  2. CTBtweets says:

    Sounds like a very good idea to me.  Knowledge is empowering, communication fosters knowledge.

  3. Great idea! I hope Christians will get on the bandwagon!

  4. Beverly Griffin says:

    What An Incredible Idea. As a VOLUNTEER, I Could Be Of Much Help Towards This Effort, With My Sales, Marketing, Public Relations and Poloitical Background!

  5. Yes, great idea. Especially because these Evangelical Christians believe that believing Jews will all go to Hell for not accepting Jesus Christ as our "personal savior." Sure, invite 'em all. Heck, invite them to go door to door like they do in America. Why not.

  6. And what is your poloitical background, Beverly.

  7. Beverly Griffin says:

    Michael, I ran for office twice during the Reagan Revolution on their ticket, the Republican ticket , and numerous volunteer positions.

  8. Yechiel Baum says:

    we have to support the Jews. Let the goyim support their own. We have done enough for them and for mankind instead of their take, take, take.

  9. Linda Gebaroff says:

    Christian birthright trip to Israel? Are you nuts? They already have a foothold in the land and are trying to make it their own. They're buying up land and they've doubled-down on their effort to convert us! In two generations we will have lost our land and our identity. We fought these people for thousands of years, escaping the inquisitions, pogroms, crusades and refused to give in to their god and now you want to let them come in and make our home their right?

  10. Linda Gebaroff says:

    Really Beverly? Here's an idea for your marketing campaign: Christians: come and get it, huge land grab! Israel is now your birth right too! Open season on converting Jews!

  11. Seems to me that we are repeating mistakes from the past when the Romans were called in. Shameful!
