I value Christian traditions and religions as I recognize them as attempts to improve individually and collectively. But I dislike it when, in their sheer numbers, Christians are not careful enough not to intimidate Jews. (Rather than blaming the victim, Jews, for being timid, try to stop the bullying.) Many Jews are way too timid. So forgive me for being extra frank again.
I see that many Christians try to be humble. But I don’t feel it when I try to teach them as a Jew but meet a wall of arrogance because they consider themselves more evolved than those primitive Jews (and pity us).
I admire that many Christians have tried to repent after the Holocaust and especially after the establishment of the State of Israel, seeing that — gasp — they were on the wrong side of history. But I so dislike it when they take no responsibility for 2000 years of persecution of Jews because “Christians who hated Jews weren’t Christians.” It’s a vile debating trick and a dishonest one at that. That’s not the way to correct historical wrongs.
Many Christians are warm friends of Jews and Israel and even more are lukewarm friends. But they must fight Christian anti-Semites and anti-Zionists — there are plenty — or their warmth would be less than sincere.
I looove fish said the man and then he ate one. Jews don’t call that love for fish. They call that love for one’s own stomach.
I looove this boy said the girl; I’m sure I can transform him into someone the way I want him to be. Jews don’t call that love. It lacks respect and recognition for the autonomy and right to self-determination. One should control oneself, not others.
I looove her, said the husband who had hit his wife to the police. Jews don’t call that love. It lacks empathy and exhibits self-centeredness incompatible with love. It doesn’t matter if you say or feel that you hate or love someone; you should first stop being violent. (It’s fine to feel your own hatred and envy as long as your actions are loving and sincere.)
I looove Jews said the Christian. I hope that my love will help them to open their eyes and upgrade their beliefs. Jews don’t call that love. It’s genocide — trying to erase a unique Nation. It matters less if you profess love or hatred; you should respect Jews as Jews.
Most Jews don’t seem to have a burning need to be loved by Gentiles. Liking us would be plenty.
It is so popular among many Christians to say that they love us, love Israel, hate Arabs, and none of it Jews need.
Stop hating Muslims or competing with them. Begin to cooperate with them to end anti-Semitism.
Stop saying that you respect Jews while not lifting a finger to send Jews that converted to Christianity back to their roots. G^d will never forgive your passive agreement with replacement. It also shows that saying that you are against Replacement Theology is dishonest and untrue.
Stop allowing missionaries to target Jews who are weak or in a tough spot. It’s finishing Hitler’s work (eradicating the Jews), demeaning to Christianity (as if it is fit to be spread in sneaky ways), and should be below the dignity of Christians. (No rape victim must be forced to seek therapy or notify the police; which doesn’t mean that rape is OK. No converted Jew must be forced to recant; which doesn’t give a license to conversions.) All very learned converted Jews, whom I ever listened to, seem to me totally insincere and dishonest; they’re no credit to your creed.)
Stop using Jews and Israel to further your dreams for the world. Jews are not your dolls to play with or aliens to stare at.
Stop saying that you support and pray for Jews for their sake. You must bless Jews so that your life will be better. You must fight anti-Semitism because, as a Christian, you cannot tolerate hatred for Jews. You must learn from Jews because without that you cannot be a proper Christian.
