Remember the Shocking Video Showing What Happens When a Jew Walks Around Paris? See a Christian Who Tried the Same Thing Walking Around Israel [Video]

Such is the blessing of Israel to the world… in many ways, it is safer to be a Christian there than in the US these days. Christians are being systematically exterminated in the Middle East by ISIS and other Jihadists. Jews are fleeing Europe and Christians won’t be far behind them at this rate. In the United States, which was founded on Christian beliefs, our government harasses us, persecutes us and is actively hunting and attacking us. I never thought I would see such a thing in America, but we are here. Sooner than later, Christians will need to stand and fight. Overwhelmingly, they will join with Jews to face the barbaric Islamic butchers stalking us today.

From TheBlaze:

Israeli journalist Zvika Klein drew a lot of attention to Muslim anti-Semitism in Europe last month when he walked around Paris for 10 hours wearing a yarmulke and faced a torrent of insults and curses. The video, captured by a photographer with a hidden camera, subsequently went viral.

Two Christian groups decided to try the same experiment, but this time showing a Christian man walking the streets of Haifa in Israel. The results were, to say the least, remarkably different.

In the video, we see Jonathan Elkhoury, an Israeli Christian, wearing a large wooden cross around his neck, walking the main streets of Haifa in northern Israel.

“What happens when you wear a cross in a major city in Israel?” was the question posed in the posting on YouTube. It added sarcastically, “WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT.”

That’s because nothing happened to Elkhoury. In contrast with Klein’s experience in Paris, when Elkhoury wearing his large cross walked around various neighborhoods of Haifa, pretty much everyone ignored him.

Despite the strife in which neighboring Christian communities now find themselves – with Islamic State kidnappings in Syria and Iraq and beheadings of the Christian faithful in Libya – Israel’s Christian minority is free to practice their faith in Israel.

It’s all the more remarkable to consider the proximity of the Christian communities over the border fighting for their lives and freedom to practice their religion. Haifa is only 90 miles from the Syrian capital of Damascus.

The groups behind the video, the Christian Empowerment Council and the Israeli Christian Recruitment Forum, promote the enlistment of Christian Arabs into the Israel Defense Forces.

Father Gabriel Naddaf, an Orthodox priest from Nazareth who heads the groups, has faced death threats from other Arab citizens of Israel over his promotion of Christian integration into the IDF.

In 2013, Naddaf’s son was attacked by an Arab citizen over his father’s military enlistment advocacy.

Naddaf following the attack said he believes that because Israel is home to his community, its members should also “give to the country.”

“We all need to live here in peace, and protect the existence of the country that we live in, since our future is here,” Naddaf said. “This is the holy land for Jews and Christians … and we have to protect it from all harm.”

“Israel: The only safe place in the Middle East. For everyone,” the makers of the new video concluded.

As Dietrich Bonhoeffer said: “Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.” Now is the time to stand up for our beliefs, our faith. Israel is our oldest and most trusted ally. They are God’s chosen people. Israel needs to be protected at all costs by the United States with or without our President’s blessing. As the darkness of evil once again casts its long shadow across the world and threatens those who only want to worship God as they see fit, war is here… and it is a war that we dare not lose. One that will either free us from murderous barbaric hordes and communists, or it will throw us back to the Dark Ages. Christians and Jews honor one another and we will fight for our homes, families and land… we will fight not just for ourselves but for all who seek peace and freedom.
