“Jews do not have an enemy in Christianity”
This was the conclusion of Israeli Law maker Nitzan Horovitz of the secular Meretz Party. He gave this statement on Israeli TV channel One’s “Second look”. Horovitz was commenting on the fact that Orthodox Jews persecution Messianic Jews.
Channel One’s “Second Look” program compared local Messianic Jews to the anti-missionary group Yad L’Achim, which has dedicated itself to harassing and driving out believers in Yeshua (Jesus).
“They [the Orthodox] are constantly looking for enemies,” Horovitz continued. “But we do not have an enemy in Christianity.”
Throughout the second half of the report were interspersed clips of Yad L’Achim and its Orthodox supporters holding hostile and heated rallies, while Messianic Jews were shown calmly praying for Israel at their places of worship.
The message was clear: Messianic Jews are not a threat to Israel or the spirit of the Jewish nation, but Yad L’Achim just might be.
Yad L’Achim director Rabbi Shalom Dov Lifschitz told Channel One that if the “missionaries” are not stopped, soon “there will be no Jews left here.”

Most of the Jews who have picked up New Testaments in Hebrew from my hand, have been secular. They have rejected Orthodox Judaism as a religion that has missed the mark. Still they are truth seekers, who rejoiced the day they heard about the true Messiah.
The true Messiah is not an enemy of Israel. In the end, He and His followers will be the only friends left for the Jewish people.
The Bible explains that there will be a people who are not Jewish, who are called to comfort His people.
Who are they?
Obviously Evangelical Christian friends of Israel, who have embraced the true Jesus of Nazareth.
[ Comfort for God’s People ] Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
