In Appreciation

During our current visit to Israel, we have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly; but above all, we have seen the beautiful! One genre of experiences which collectively can be filed in the "beautiful" category is the many instances of encounters with Christians, American and otherwise, who support Israel against those who would destroy it.

I do not in any way negate or ignore my various profound theological differences with the Christian doctrines, or the gross historical abuses done to the Jewish people in the name of Christianity. At such time as the Messiah comes or returns, we will then know whether we all are Christians or whether we all are Jews. Such matters aside, I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation to the Christian supporters of Israel in general, and to those who have chosen to visit Israel in particular.

Unfortunately, many so-called Jewish leaders have not been so emphatic in their backing of the Jewish people.

Tomorrow, we are scheduled to return to the Holy City of Jerusalem. We will, in all likelihood, have further occasion to meet more of our Christian friends who are visiting the holy soil of the Land of Israel.

To all our Christian friends whom we have met (or will meet) here, I say "thanks."
