Shomron Leaders Court Christian Missionaries Who Target Jews for Conversion

 Posted by JewishIsrael.com

A number of leaders in Judea and Samaria continue to partner with notorious Christian missionary entities while turning a blind eye to the risks involved.  

Official fundraising bodies for the Shomron Regional Council, such as Shuva Israel, as well as private charitable endeavors, like the Shiloh Children's Fund, regularly solicit and encourage some of the very same evangelical organizations which are actively engaged in missionary activities in Israel and involved in efforts to proselytize Israel's most vulnerable sectors.

Under the circumstances, "shmad" would not be an incorrect term to use for what is being allowed to occur in Israel. It is most tragic that Torah observant leadership in Israel has unabashedly chosen to partner with and embrace those who are determined to draw Jews away from their faith…more

First to Ellen, thanks for posting this.
Second to John, obviously you don't understand that G-d has given human beings the right to make mistakes. It's called Free Will. Life isn't as simplistic as you think.

I just want to add to what Batya said that our free will constantly has an effect. That's what the two Parshiyot Hatochacha are all about in the Torah. In fact, a great part of the entire Tanach is lessons of cause and effect.

Therefore John, it is incorrect to automatically assume that G-d is on our side. The question to be asked is are we on His side? Apparently some of Shomron's leaders are dupes for the side who endanger Am Yisrael in Eretz Yisrael.

What we can pray for in the interim is that Hashem should forgive us for our stupidities and that the plans of these infiltrating christians should come to naught.

But someone must do something to show our people what a big mistake they are making.
