Yehuda Glick Meets with JewishIsrael to Discuss Red Lines in Israel-Christian Relations

posted by JewishIsrael.com

Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick will receive the "Lion of Zion" Moskowitz Prize for Zionism on Tuesday, May 19. While JewishIsraelhas personally expressed reservations to Yehuda regarding his campaign for "equal rights" for all religions on the Temple Mount,JewishIsrael congratulates Yehuda on his award and commends him for his courage, commitment and dedication.
JewishIsrael's directors had the opportunity to meet at length with Yehuda in his home just before Pesach. It was a cordial and productive meeting...more

I live in a dati-leumi settlement, but the truth must be said:

Who actively encourages xns in Israel in all their guises, missionaries, messianics, and what have you? The dati-leumi rabbis.

Who pushes for all kinds of non-kosher conversions? The dati-leumi rabbis. (There is even an organisation that teaches people how to fake their conversion).

Dati-leumi rabbis are destroying am yisrael from within, and it breaks my heart to see this.

Unless something is done very soon it will be too late. In a generation or two Israel will, halila, be full of xns and it will be impossible to distinguish between halachic Jews, and the children and grand-children of all those who fake a conversion.

Ellen, I agree with you. The Temple Mount has its true significance as a Jewish Holy Place. It's not yet in our hands. We should not encourage sharing it with others.
a, not all of the rabbis in yishuvim encourage contact with Christians.

Must agree with Anon. #1. Our sages foretold that at the end of days most of the rabbis will be of the Erev Rav. It is true that these christians are involved with the 'religious' rabbis and Jews and are getting their okay's for this convoluted friendship. To read that Glick, an orthodox Jew, expresses such an outright blasphemous statement is extremely disturbing. The real Rabbis must stand up and strongly oppose this desecration that is coming from within the dati leumi community.

From Anon1:
I didn't say it was all of the dati-leumi rabbis, but it is from amongst their ranks alone that they bring all these ills onto the whole of Israel. It's not from the dati-leumi community itself, it's from the rabbis, and it's not from haredim. They should be fighting it tooth and nail, not revelling in their new-found glory. It's something they are proud of and write about on their websites. Yet, it's a complete abuse of their position.

Not only that, it's not going to be their children who intermarry with the xns and the fake Jews. Their children and grandchildren will marry into other prominent families, whilst the less educated, (but more Gd fearing) "Moshe shmo" from Kiryat Gat will end up marrying Leah Christina bat Mary. If that isn't heartbreaking I don't know what is.

While certain members of the national religious camp are courting evangelicals and cooperating with messianic missionaries, this is by no means an exclusive "Dati-Leumi" problem.

Certain leaders in the Hareidi and secular communities in Israel are by no means innocent and are actively partnering with evangelizing Christians

Secular people is a different issue. The point is that one expects better, much, much better from people who supposedly follow the Torah, and not only that, make their living, and live a life of kavod, above reproach, on account of their supposed lofty level of yiddishkeit. It's a complete abuse.

Personally, I'm not aware of Haredi involvement with xns. I had thought them to be opposed to it. Could you give any specifics? Thanks.

I think the national religious camp is particularly vulnerable, because the yishuvim in Yehuda and Shomron have been largely isolated (abandoned?) from mainstream Jewish philanthropic sources, and so they have turned to others...

I personally feel that part of the problem is that national camp leaders never learned to state their case properly to their Jewish brethren in Israel and the Diaspora. Rather than rise to a very difficult challenge and refine their efforts,it was a lot easier to turn to those who open up checkbooks without asking questions (and to stamp it with a "prophecy" hechsher). But that's another issue for another time.

Yes Hareidi-run organizations have taken from the likes of IFCJ, Pastor Hagee and Robert Stearns. Meir Panim, Migdal Or and Colel Chabad to name but a few...

But this is not the forum to explore that. Reports are available at JewishIsrael.com

Ellen, yes, for sure, thanks

Thanks Ellen; good to know who those orgs. are. Knew about Meir Panim and now am not donating to them for that reason alone. Another desecration is about to take place (just read it on Arutz 7); The catholics are planning to have some kind of ceremony on Shavuot and the religious Jews, B'H, are planning to come in droves to make sure that they outnumber the notzrim. Who would have thought in their worst nightmares that there could be such a desecration at this time of history in Yerushalayim, and of all places, Kever Dovid HaMelech. The Jews must rise up and make it known to the memshalah that this will not be tolerated.

Since our inception, JewishIsrael has been regularly reporting on the Vatican's aspirations for Mount Zion and control of the "upper room (cenacle shrine) located above Kever Dovid HaMelech.

Just go to JewishIsrael.com and enter the word vatican in the search engine located in the upper right-hand corner of the site

But as far back as 2005 Shilohmusings's Batya was an active member of the "Committee to Save Mount Zion" and worked to alert the public to the problem.
