Israel is only Mideast state safe for Christians, envoy to U.S. says.
In Wall Street Journal op-ed, Michael Oren compares what he calls the current repression of Christians in the Muslim world to the expulsion of Jews from Arab states.
Israel is the only country in the Middle East that is safe for Christians, Israel’s ambassador to the United States Michael Oren wrote in an op-ed column for the Wall Street Journal on Friday, comparing what he said was the suppression of Christian communities in Arab states to the twentieth-century expulsion of Jews from these nations.
In his article, Oren cited the continuing violence against Egypt’s Coptic Christians, the burning of Iraqi churches, a Saudi ban on Christian worship and the desecration of the Church of the Nativity in the West Bank as instances indicating a threat to Christianity in the Muslim world, adding that conversion “to Christianity is a capital offense in Iran, where last month Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani was sentenced to death.”

Despite Messianic Jews being persecuted and troubled in Israel, Michael Oren tells the truth about Israel being the only safe place for Christians in the Middle East. Neither Messianic Christians nor Messianic Jews are crippled or killed for their faith.
While Evangelical Christians will be beheaded if they lead Muslims into faith in Jesus in Saudi Arabia and Iran, Israel let even anti-Jewish “Christians” come on pilgrimages to their “holy land”.
It is worth noticing that a secular, or semi-religious Jew like Michael Oren acknowledge that Evangelical Christians are the only true friends of the Jewish people.
When “Christians” join Islam on their attacks on Israel, they are like a man who tries to cut of the roots of the three he sits in. Slowly the three will die, and the man will come crashing down to the ground.
Jesus says that when a blind man leads another blind, they will both fall into a pit.
