In the clip, the voiceover claims that they are the watchmen on Israel’s walls. I would call their channel: OCKNOB: Our chutzpah knows no bounds.
It’s nice to be open-minded, but not at the expense of others. It’s pure egotism to say, missionary activism on the Jews doesn’t disturb me. How nice that you are safe but care a bit for others who are prone to deceit. Jews notoriously flip between being paranoid and being completely naive. You don’t want the most innocent under us to give up their holy tradition.
Saying that you welcome a fair competition between Christian doctrine and the Jewish tradition is like saying to dentists that we don’t have to warn people against eating sugar all day. Just welcome the competition between sugar and whole-wheat bread. That’s equally ridiculous.
On top of that, Christians are with 2 billion people against 20 million Jews. The economic and man-power of the latter dwarf in comparison. And we Jews already need to battle antisemitism all day long, as a State (still no peace), online, in the street, in the UN, and the list goes on. And we should welcome Christians attacking us too (claiming to save us)? Absurd.
Further, Jews from outside of Israel are used to defending themselves against false claims and enticing advertisements by Christians. But Israeli Jews don’t define themselves in contrast to others. It is like introducing new microbes into a population. You can’t say that any healthy group can deal with them. They have no immunity at all yet. It’s going to be a graveyard.
Many Christian missionaries targeting Jews often don’t just promote an alternative ethical worldview. They employ pure deceit with claims that one could easily serve both G’d and the Baal. Some go so far to posit that the most complete form of authentic Judaism is reached when you add Jesus to the mix. And they often aim at Jews who are in great distress and who are weak in their Judaism. This is all pure deceit and falsehood. We should respect all ethical worldviews but not immorality and deception. [I don’t know if you can see it. The guy speaking in the opening clip, I see that he’s untruthful. He has a little smirk around his lips. Look carefully.]
One wonders how people can claim to have respect (or even love) for Jews and a wish to support Jews and still aim to un-Jew them. It’s like saying to your partner, I love you from the bottom of my heart with all my soul and please change your character, go for plastic surgery, talk differently …
Trying to convert Jews is ethnic cleansing. It’s genocide. It’s finishing Hitler’s work. But … it’s not only a danger to the People under siege; it is also a great shame on the people who support this. I am still waiting for a majority of Christians to actively oppose missionary activity on the Jews, just like a majority of Germans is ardently against racism and antisemitism.
The best reason for Jews to stay away from Christianity is its attempt to convert Jews. It’s so disgusting — who would want anything to do with such immorality? I like Christianity for Gentiles but something is rotten in the State of Denmark. I hope a vast majority of Christians will soon change that. I’m not talking about certain streams disavowing missionary activity on the Jews. I’m talking about active opposition against it and talking to converted Jews (with love and warmth) to try to have them return home.
It’s a scandal that some Christians first rob us of Jews, and then we need to bring them back. First we are robbed and then we need to spend energy to regain our fellows. Are there then no Christians who know of repentance?
