Come on now
How is it that Zionists can deny that Israel's persecute Messianic believers? It is well published. Try 'Googling' it sometime. Seems that for some:
I suppose I'm guilty of the same occasionaly (please point it out if I ever do that).
"For Palestinian Christians, the Holy Land today does not provide a blessed life...Father Justinus, a Greek Orthodox priest, has been attacked numerous times by Israeli settlers who wish to repossess the well. Today, roughly 50,000 Christians remain in the West Bank -- less than 4% of the population, a figure which was 40% before Israel was created. Even, Jesus' birthplace, Bethlehem, is no longer majority Christian.
While some have sought to blame Muslims for the decline, in a 2006 poll of Christians in Bethlehem, 78% attributed the ongoing exodus of Christians from Bethlehem to the Israeli travel restrictions on the area." (emphasis Mr. Medad's)
Everyone knows that Muslims persecute Christians the world over on a broader scale than just the Holy Land, much do to the numbers of scale. There are how many Muslim majority nations, vs. Jewish majority?
Israel (and Israeli - Zionist bloggers) boasts about protecting its minority Christian population, and allowing freedom of religion (ie freedom to 'convert' vis a vis Messianic Jews), when in effect, it has been hard at work to minimize the Muslim and Christian populations in order to maintain a majority, prevent missionary activity, and the outreach of Evangelical ministries and churches.
Come on, the first step to peace is admitting there's a problem.
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, and all its inhabitants.
