The Great Divide

Why should Israelis and American Jews see eye to eye? Americans and Israelis are not alike. They have different concerns, interests, lifestyles, and even a different calendar...

  1. After laying out, at length, the disastrous effects of Reform Judaism on America’s Jewry, it’s odd to read Mr. Jager’s criticism of Israelis’ opposition to normalizing & expanding the role of Reform Judaism in Israel.

  2. “Trump does not seem fixated on an Israeli withdrawal; and that fact, strangely enough, is why 57 percent of Jews in America disapprove of his handling of the Arab-Israeli conflict.”
    So you are saying that 57 percent of us American Jews disapprove of his handling of conflict because he is not pressing for Israeli withdrawal? You know this how? Not the 57 percent, but the reason?
    I as an American Jew disapprove because he lacks legitimacy almost everywhere–thus nothing he attempts will get very far.

  3. I appreciate the article by Mr. Jager and his delineation of the different aspects of Judaism in the current world. The last comment was just political absurdity. Shows the world how far Jews and Christians have strayed from God’s word. And that is exactly the point. God brought the Hebrews and Israel to reality through Abraham and his descendants. Read Genesis and following. Without Yahweh and His divine protection there would be no Israel or Jewish people. God also promised in at least two passages of scripture, that whoever blessed Israel would be blessed and who ever condemned Israel would be condemned. He didn’t say who could bless. However He does know who He will condemn. And they will have a bad, fatal future. So, while the world is wrangling about the West Bank, Gaza and the Golan Heights, God is watching over Israel and guess what? He doesn’t care what you think. You are not God and never will be. I am a Christian and I love Israel and the Jews, flawed or not. They are still God’s people, and He will never break the covenant He made with Abraham. God does not go back on His word. Read chapters 60-66 of Isaiah. You will see how Yahweh deals with and blesses His people. Put the word of God in your thoughts and discard the worldly trash that invades your mind. In the end God wins. Praise His holy name. Gary
