For Israel’s Messianic Jews, the conundrum is more than theoretical. How should we vote as Messianic Jews? How would you vote if you were in our shoes?
Should we vote for those wanting to secure all the land of Israel, as the Bible teaches? Or should we go with the party most tolerant of Messianic Jews and our activities?
Which party will give us the most freedom to preach the Good News in Israel and crack down on persecution of Messianic Jews across the country?
When the Bedouin saw the newly planted trees, they began to riot, clashing with the police and damaging cars, and even a train. The leader of the only Arab party in Israel's ruling government, Ra’am, threatened to quit the coalition if the trees were planted. That would have brought the government down. The planting stopped.
The Bedouin are a people trapped in time. When they are told of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or Moses and Yeshua—they ask if they are still alive. They know nothing of our modern world or cities even just hours away.
