2. Re:1
Psalms 83 ,   Selah   (01.11.08)
Most Evagelicals know that once the flow of G-ds Prophecey is complete the resolution of whos correct and Whos not will be resolved . Either The Jewish position will be vindicated or the evangelical position will be vindicated.... or a little of both. To Christians Judism is its foundation ....without it there would be no christianity. The bible says those that bless Israel will be blessed those who curse Israel or does Israel harm will be cursed. The christian must show his/her support from thier heart ...not because there is a rule that says he or she has to.

5. 1 - maybe aid given to palestinians should be w/out string
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (01.11.08)
you take money from anyone, there are strings attached. if you don't like the strings, don't take the money. if you feel the money is dirty, what does it say about you for taking it?
6.  Re4:Evangelical Christians want to destroy Israel
Psalms 83 ,   Selah   (01.11.08)
Not True....not all evagelicals want to destroy Israel ....many many are helping bring the despersion home to Israel.... I will say there is an element in the evagelical community that has replacement theology as one of thier doctrines (replacement of Israel with the church) not all evangelicals believe this....
7. dear 5,the non jew.
Keren ,   Israel-SP   (01.11.08)
If the money is sincere ,it is welcome;if it is not ,it isn't welcome.Understand now?
8. 7 well at least have a little self-dignity
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (01.11.08)
...instead of taking handouts (like the palestinians). i'd think jews would not want to be so dependent on charity from those so vile and unworthy. even abraham didn't want to receive anything from strangers, even gifts. but i guess today is indicative of how far you have strayed from the path.
9. muke,you insist in talking no sense ,just to talk.
Keren ,   Israel-SP   (01.11.08)
but as you are insisting in an appropriate answer, I will give it to you: don't live dependant on charity by being in the Jewish Eretz Israel ,just to stick in your wife's needs.Go back to america.There you don't have to be dependent on carity from no one. Understand?
10. 9 - keep dreaming
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (01.11.08)
i'll be here long after you're gone.
11. muke,at least have some self dignity
Keren ,   Israel-SP   (01.11.08)
because,at the moment,you are living on charity,since arabs do not belong to Eretz Israel,and you have been able to live here ONLY because you are married to an Israeli arab citizen,status that could change anytime in the near future. But,the future only G'od knows.I will not discuss it with you and with nobody.I only do what present requires me to do. By now,you should have self dignity and get out! Byee,dear.
12. 200 years of Evangelical Christian support to Israel
friend of CMJ ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.11.08)
I invite you to check out the ministry of CMJ, (Church's Ministry to the Jews) and their historical heritage centers in Jaffa, Galilee, and Jerusalem. Thousands of Israelis visit these heritage centers every month. Here is an excerpt from their website: "Bet Nicolayson (the name of the Heritage center ministry) illustrates the nearly 200 years of history associated with a society that started as the Church's Ministry to the Jews (CMJ) and has since established the Israel Trust of the Anglican Church (ITAC) which works strictly in Israel. CMJ was established in England in 1809, by leading Christians including, Joseph Frey and William Wilberforce, and Lewis Way, who pleaded before the European heads of State on behalf of the Jewish people. CMJ first came to the land of Israel in the 1820’s via Joseph Wolfe, George Dalton, William Lewis and others who worked with the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions. These men helped to introduce modernity to the Land. They sought to have a British Consulate in Israel, which was subsequently established in 1838 by Lord Palmerston. Christ Church, the first Protestant church in the region, and the attached Consulate were the first modern buildings in Jerusalem, built in 1849. Michael Solomon Alexander, a former rabbi, was the first Protestant bishop in Jerusalem and pastor of Christ Church. This Bishopric was a combined effort of Britain and Prussia and marked the beginning of German involvement in the city. In addition to these achievements, CMJ opened the first modern hospital in Jerusalem (1844) and sent the first Western doctors to the Land. Many of Jerusalem’s most notable 19th century inhabitants were associated with CMJ and Christ Church. Among others, they included: James Finn and his wife Elizabeth, the second British consul and pioneers of Jewish agriculture in the Land, Bishop Samuel Gobat, second Bishop of Christ Church and a pioneer of educational and social work amongst the Arab population and, Conrad Schick, who began in the House of Industry, and became known as Jerusalem’s foremost scholar, archaeologist and model maker. Finn and Gobat also established the first buildings outside the walls of the Old City. It was also during the 1830’s and 1840’s that political and social development occurred. During this period, British evangelical Christians (both Anglican and non-Anglican) who were dedicated to restoration, strongly influenced the British government to officially propose to the Turkish Government the restoration of Israel to her land. This laid the foundation for the Balfour Declaration. Throughout its history, CMJ has had contact with such notables as Lord Shaftesbury, King Frederick William IV of Prussia, General Allenby and General Montgomery. There is no other organization whose work amongst Jewish people has such a rich heritage. "

I folow the work of the caucus through the meeting and it seems that they are the only governmental body that works. The MK's involved all deserve our thanks and respect.
