Judeo-Christian values? Really? You can read here to know what I think about so-called Judeo-Christian Values.
One commenter on this post even suggested that...
It is CIVILIZATION against BARBARISM.
No. It's not. It's Torah against anti-Torah. And, yes, distorted Torah is anti-Torah. As the Ramba"m states:
שלושה הן הכופרים בתורה: ... והאומר שהבורא החליף מצוה זו במצוה אחרת, וכבר בטלה תורה זו, אף על פי שהיא הייתה מעם ה', כגון הנוצריים וההגריים. כל אחד משלושה אלו כופר בתורה. (משנה תורה, הל׳ תשובה ג,יז)
Three [types] are the deniers of the Torah: ... And the one who says that the Creator replaced this commandment with a different commandment, and that this Torah was already nullified, even though it was from The Almighty, such as the Christians and the descendants of Hagar. Each of these three denies the Torah. (Mishneh Torah, Laws of Repentance 3:17)
Esau (the West - Malbi"m) are not our friends.
There isn't any quantitative difference in the threats/dangers between Esau and Yishmael (Arabs/Muslims), only qualitative. Esau's weapons and strategies (eg. smiles, money, lying, tricks) are simply different than those of Yishmael's. Esau's descendants are not our friends.
The Kiss of Esau
And Esau's kiss IS his bite. (Gerer Rebbe) Thus, the trickiness of Esau. He has many faces. Just as he adapted his strategies to conquer his brother Ya'aqov, Esau's spiritual descendants have adapted their strategies to conquer Ya'aqov's descendants.
Do not forget that one of the eventual goals of Esau is to take the Land of Israel which it believes is rightfully his (theirs). The Vatican is acquiring parts, as are the Greek and Russian Orthodox churches.
The Evangelicals, as well as those who have "evolved" beyond that have been sneaking into Israel left and right, with the goal of staying, attempting to blend in with "settler" appearing clothing, and by "volunteering" to work the Land.
There are even those of Esau's descendants who have invented a recent movement, fake Israelites (Christians calling themselves "Ephraimites"), as a way of getting a foothold on our Land.
These group all desperately attempt to separate themselves from the Vatican and the Orthodox. Even though they all worship the same false deity, and hold the same Christian mythological texts as divine. And they all have countless "right-wing, religious" Jews fooled, Jews who have been blinded by their co-dependent need receive love and existential validation from the outside.
The progressives want Israel too. In their case, they want Israel to be part of the secular, global community of humans, absent of nationalistic ties. But that's another story for another time.
The using of the phrase Judeo-Christian values is just another one of Esau's strategies to latch onto Ya'aqov (Israel).
However, the phrase also feeds the Jews' co-dependence desperate need for acceptance by the non-Jews, and a sense of belonging among them.
I remember there was a time when this called nothing less than assimilation. So, the fact that most of these Jews cover their heads all of a sudden makes this acceptable? These Jews believe that they can "handle" the Christian theology thrown in their faces, because their emunah (faith) is so strong?
Christian missionizing is not the [only] issue.
They want our Land. And its Jews, knowingly or unknowingly, who are helping them to gain a foothold in Eretz Yisr'ael., counter to the halakha (Torah Law).
שנאמר "ולא תחונם" (דברים ז,ב), לא תיתן להן חניה בקרקע (משנה תורה, הל׳ עבודה זרה וחוקות הגויים י,א-ט)
...As it is said, "do not have mercy" (Deut. 7:2), do not allow them to gain space in the Land... (Mishneh Torah, Laws of Foreign Worship and Non-Jews 10:1-9)
