A message to evangelical Christians who "support Israel"

Please do so quietly, and don't try to involve us in your festivities of misunderstanding, distortion, and fanaticism.

We Jews are a little bit uncomfortable with those of you who "support Israel" because it fits into your apocalyptic world view that, ultimately, includes the forced conversion of all of us to Christianity.

So, Mr. John Hagee, please, your night "to honor Israel" does nothing to honor Israel. Instead, it brings to light a devious and bigoted religious agenda that has nothing to do with actually honoring the Jewish people or the Jewish state, and everything to do with advancing a fanatical Christian theocratic agenda.

Now, if you will excuse me, I will go back to being Jewish and having no plans to be converted forcefully to Christianity or burning in a lake of eternal hellfire. Thank you very much.
