The End - 2000 to 2009

Israeli Jews Burn Hundreds of Bibles

American Christians love Israel, but Israelis don’t love their holy book.

Or Yehuda Deputy Mayor Uzi Aharon said missionaries recently entered a neighborhood in the predominantly religious town of 34,000 in central Israel, distributing hundreds of New Testaments and missionary material.

After receiving complaints, Aharon said, he got into a loudspeaker car last Thursday and drove through the neighborhood, urging people to turn over the material to Jewish religious students who went door to door to collect it.

The books were dumped into a pile and set afire in a lot near a synagogue, he said.

The Israeli Maariv daily reported Tuesday that hundreds of Jewish religious school students took part in the book-burning. But Aharon told The Associated Press that only a few students were present, and that he was not there when the books were torched. Not all of the New Testaments that were collected were burned, but hundreds were, he said.

      “American Christians love Israel, but Israelis don’t love their holy book.”

      A lot of Christians love Israel for it being holy land, but they feel sorry for Muslim & Jewish Israelis for not being Christian (not loving their holy book.)

      I don’t love any of the above, and I don’t like missionaries. I don’t like burning things either. I am sensitive to smoke.

      THIS STORY WAS “PLACED” (here and elsewhere) AND THERE IS NO TRUTH TO IT… IT IS TRYING TO DETRACT INFORMATION FROM MUSLIM BIBLE BURNINGS… Do a background check just Google it.

      Anyone with half a brain (and the required due diligence to check the facts) knows this story has been planted… the only criminal here is people like yourself who engage in this kind of propaganda in order to further your cause by causing religious disharmony. I am neither christian nor jewish, so your use of the word “we” is another attempt to slam others in order to further your goal.

      LET US ALL STAND FOR FREEDOM OF BELIEF… LET US BE WISE OF THE LIES THAT PROMOTE OTHERWISE.

      LIE:

      If you were neither Christian nor Jewish, you wouldn’t even bother saying anything, as it would not concern you or bother you in the slightest. I’d say you’re Jewish, because anything which makes a claim against the Jews, is always this MASSIVE TABOO!! You may say anything you wish, about any other religion, race , culture or creed…and it’s OKAY…but don’t EVER come out with something that muddies the name of Israel, or you automagically become an Anti-Semite….which is impossible, since the illegal occupiers of Israel are not Semites. Never were, never will be.

      All of the racist groups burn books, not just Jews.
