Opposition to Jews for Jesus

Some young vandals have been doing some damage to our vehicles and book store in Sydney. Some different groups have been damaging our sister organization in Melbourne and also damaging our billboards there. May these criminals find God's kindness and also appropriate behaviour in a multi-religious society.

Paul Cohen has put up a link on mp3 for anyone to listen to John Safran's show on Triple J in Melbourne.

i have to wonder what causes some people to act out like this? are they just religious and hate jews 4 jesus? what did you guys do against them anyway

Mitch,
I wish I knew what got into folks who do as you call it 'acting out." I think sometimes they want to make statements and no one really listens to them, so they shout, sometimes with violence. But if religion is a motivator, they seem to misunderstand 'ahavat yisrael' and I hope they figure that out soon. Thanks for writing.
God bless!

Overnight some young Jewish vandals threw a brick at our book shop in Bondi, but operations will be normal for us again today (Friday) for those wanting seder plates or items for Passover, or anything to make their life with God that much better.

Police are continuing to narrow the hunt down for these boys, to collect the now $15,000 they owe in maliciious damages.

jews for jesus? no wonder they smashed your window... you are nuts. how can you be jewish and believe in such nothing. jesus was a good man but not g-d or antyhing

Mitch said...

it just doesn't make sense to me that Jews would do this against Jews 4 Jesus. didn't we learn anything in the holocaust? i mean, that night of broken glass and all, so it couldn't be jews that are doing this to you guys. maybe it's nonjews pretending to be jews who are giving you a hard time. maybe?

Mitch,
My friend Moishe who lives in the US, says that it was Gentiles who are pretending to be Jews. I hope he is right and you are right. It is over the top for Jews to do this kind of thing to each other. Let's hope whoever is doing this... that they will stop!
