No one doubts the heroism of those Jews like Yuli Edelstein (Likud), currently the Minister of Hasbarah and Diasporah Affairs. He fought and suffered while stuck in the former Soviet Union. He was an inspiration to others in the same situation, as well as to those of us living in relative freedom in the West. He helped keep their spirits alive and maintain their sense of hope.
As a member of K'nesseth and minister in the Israeli government,
The following is the translation of an excerpt from a letter I received from Mina Fenton, former Jerusalem City Council Member, followed by its translation. Please read it, before you cast your vote in the Likud Primaries, and before you vote in the Israeli General Elections, this coming January, 2013.
I spoke with Yuli Edelstein, Minister of Hasbarah and Diasporah Affairs, while he was on his way to Binyanei HaUmah (the Jerusalem Convention Center) on Tuesday of Hol HaMo'ed Sukkoth, before he was to speak at the missionary convention of religious persecution, THE FEAST. I made it clear to him that the Chairperson of the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem [ICEJ], organizers of THE FEAST, Jürgen Bühler is in fact a missionary. He was a member of the management of the missionary organization "King Of Kings" in the Klal Building from 1994 to 2010, until he received the position of general manager of the ICEJ. He is still listed as an active member of the "King of Kings."The minister [Edelstein] thanked me, of course,..... and said that his adviser will check into it. This probably did not "move" the minister, and he simply thought he was speaking nonsense to the convention from a Jewish standpoint, and sold us to them for the their dollars, what I call "Journey of the Cross of Dollars."Sincerely,Mina Fenton
How many of you knew about this? My guess is probably none of you.
Do you really want someone in the K'nesseth with such a casual attitude towards Christian missionaries, someone with a kippah on his head even?
Oh, and, by the way, although Prime Minister Netanyahu did not attend this missionary conference, he did send them a video greeting.
Food for thought.
