While Donald Trump did not plan on having a Jewish daughter, he is glad he did so, the business tycoon said Tuesday night upon accepting the Liberty Award at The Algemeiner’s ‘Jewish 100’ Gala in New York City.

“I want to thank my Jewish daughter. I have a Jewish daughter,” he said at the event, which drew a star-studded crowd of 500 to the Capitale on Bowery. “This wasn’t in the plan but I’m very glad it happened.”

Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, converted to Judaism in 2009 before marrying real estate developer Jared Kushner, whom Donald described on stage as a “spectacular guy.” In presenting the award to her father, Ivanka described him as someone who has firm convictions and “a man who uses his platform and uses his voice to effectuate change.”

“He is fundamentally somebody who believes that it’s his civic duty to speak his mind and often say what’s not popular and what others are afraid to,” she added. “He has used his voice often and loudly in support of Israel and in support of developments within Israel, in support of security for Israel and in support of the idea of Israeli democracy.”

On stage, Trump concluded his acceptance speech by asserting his strong support for the Jewish state. He told the audience, “We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 percent, 1,000 percent. It will be there forever.”

Other honorees at the event included philanthropists Joseph and Deborah Aronow, late entertainer Joan Rivers and speaker of the Knesset Yuli Edelstein.

    well said alenajoy, That is lovely.

    many of you who claim to be Christians have a few things wrong. First of all. Yes salvation is thru Christ(Yeshua) alone. But the Bible tells us That He was the fullfilment of the Law. He never came to abolish it. In fact He is the LAw. Read carefully the book of Romans.Also the law does not only include the 10 Words of Yehoveh(God) but also state s that we are to be obediant to the will of god. Exodus 20: also what was obolished was not the law itself but the punishment that Yeshua did away with for Sin. Also the pharisies and scribes. were changing the Law to suite themselves. that is what was also abolished The law was given by God and is Holy and Good. the Law still stands only under a new order thru Jesus. did he not add to it two new commands. Read your Bible carefully.Another command that the Lord mayed was to keep his statutes in observing his Feists. Which most people do not observe today. Such as Passover and the Feist of tabernacales. But most Christians today world rather observe two Very pagan celebrations Christmas and Easter ( dedicated to the godess Ishtar or Estarte). Again read your Bibles and cjeck out your history .Infact all those who profess to be Christians are grafted into the vine making them a part of
    spiritual Israel. check it out people. The bible does not lie. ther fore obligating you all to be obidient to Gods will of observing
    His feists and not your own. It also says that God will bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse Israel. when those of us who claim to truly be torah obsevant are not trying to rekindle the Law it has always been there. Jesus (the Law ). But we are observant to follow Him and His wonderful saving grace in doing what is commanded to live a God filled life and thru the power of the Holy Spirit(the Ruach-Ha-kodesh). The Bible tells us to Know the Truth and the Truth will set Us free.

  • John

    Really, please point out the swear words and racist remarks.

  • John

    Actually He did follow the 10 Commandments which is the Law that was handed down to Moses, all the other laws and regulations were the laws of man not God and since He came to fulfill the law that puts an end to Mosaic law.

  • John

    I don’t agree with that but that is your choice and right.

  • Missy Victoria

    Whats wrong w it? Only your own immortal soul is in dire detriment of being eternally damned. In fact, you are already condemned and you have done that to yourself by not believing in Jesus Christ as Savior. Thats all. Problem is.. Judaism is all about the Torah (and Talmud).. so, the New Testament is out of the question for practitioners of Judaism. Thus, they miss the Gospel message. The ways of the old Jewish Law are obsolete. No one is justified by the works of the Law. Only by being made ‘born-again’ does one have eternal-life. Jesus told Nicodemus, a Pharisee.. ‘you must be born-again’.. and how that occurs is by hearing the Gospel, believing and turning toward Christ for Salvation and forgiveness of sin. The simple Gospel of Jesus Christ is primarily about saving us from eternal-damnation in Hell. And of course, having a personal relationship w God, thru Jesus Christ. When we pass away, nothing matters.. other than did we accept Christ as our Savior or did we reject Him? Heaven or Hell. Once we take our last breath.. no more do-overs. Our soul goes to where its going. Its all about choice. Choose wisely.

    • John

      Sorry but the soul is NOT immortal since it can be killed by God. Furthermore the soul is a combination of a body and the breath of Life given to it by God. Looking closely at the creation of Adam will show this.

  • Robert Pentangelo

    What nonsense; she would have had to renounce faith in the Lord Jesus and in the “true” faith and the NT-if not explicitly then implicitly. Jesus said: I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life-no man comes to the Father except through me. That is the teaching of Christ, of St. John, St. Peter, and St. Paul. Wise up.

  • Yochanan Mauritz Hummasti

    Jewish law or halachah states “Once a Jew, always a Jew!” A convert
    comes into the community by their vow to uphold Jewish law. If they
    break their vow they may be punished as any other Jew but they don’t
    lose their status as a Jew! On the other side of the coin, if they
    fulfill their vow, they will be rewarded just like any other Jew.

    • John

      And since all more or less has some Jewish blood running threw our veins we can be in someway considered Jewish. God said if you love me then obey/follow my commandments, He never said anything about becoming 1 earthly faith or another. But I’m just a simple country boy and I could be wrong.

  • julio julio

    Let’s pray that the grandson doesn’t turn out to be a kapo, or a bad Omen like Damien.

  • Steve Lehrer

    Oy Vey! Dear God, Why could you simply not have made us all atheists? If no one on Earth, or any other planet, for that matter, had any belief you, then dear God, we all could have lived in peace amongst each other. Why, dear God, did you choose to put us all at odds with each other, by having my people, The Jewish people, bring your word to all the peoples of planet Earth? We were not then, nor are we now, evolved enough and wise enough to comprehend the true meaning of a “supreme being”! Dear God, if anything in the universe, is truly within your power, then please, use that power to completely wipe any memory and/or knowledge of your alleged existence. Further dear God, please erase any memory, of the man named Jesus Christ…The man that some allege to be your son and the so called messiah! Please, please, answer my prayer and my plea.. For the sake of all mankind! Thank you, Dear God. And may you, bless yourself!

    • ceg

      Ivanka Trump did not “convert” from Christianity to Judaism, as one must receive a Revelation directly from the Father that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, just as Peter did in Matthew 16:16-18. It is obvious that Ivanka is still “seeking” for the Truth, for had she found Him (Jesus), it would of been impossible for her to renounce the Faith. For whatever reason, the “seed” of God’s Word never reached “good ground” and never grew to full fruition, if it had, she would of received a Revelation of Jesus Christ. I encourage everyone to read the parable of the “Sower Sows the Word” in (Luke 8:4-15). The reason being, if you do NOT have a Revelation of Jesus Christ yet, Jesus reveals “why” in this parable. Jesus will show you “where you are” in this parable, and what you must do to receive a Revelation of Jesus Christ. I am asking all Christians to agree with me in prayer, that Jesus would visit Ivanka and her husband and family in a powerful, super-natural way. May we all ask God for His Love to be manifested in our lives so that we can “Love” people into the Kingdom of God. May Jesus reveal Himself to everyone who reads this post…

    • Dear Steve,
      I am so sorry but the Lord will never answer that prayer – because to do so he would deny himself and his very being. Steve, when evil reigns we tend to only look at the horror around us and forget that behind that stands a savior, weeping for us all.

      He is not the author of all this pain, sin was found in the heart of his greatest creation -an angel named Lucifer, that’s where all the pain, suffering, sorrow sickness, hatred, death, horror and more started,but that was no surprise to the Lord for he created both good and evil, night and day, dark and light.

      The reason lies in this truth – sometimes the greatest love is often only shown in the most evil places. Corrie Ten Boom who lived through the Jewish death camps- said of the horror she whet through there that,” There was no pit so deep that God was not deeper still”. That in the horror, pain,death, murder, abuse, starvation and suffering it was the Lord who gave her waves and depths of lovingkindness, tender mercies, comfort,peace and strength that help her to live through that living hell.

      You see that is what is missing in your prayer – to eradicate the memory and influence of the Lord would take all live, love, faith, hope, patience, compassion,joy, peace, kindness,tenderness, holiness and beauty out of the world.

      Jesus was the personification of that beauty, in his whole life he never once made anyone blind, he healed the blind, he never once made anyone lame, he healed the lame, no one started at his hand he fed the multitudes.

      Jesus, according to his flesh was a Jew in perfection, in Holiness and in Sanctification all that the Jews were meant to be, they were the called by God, the beloved of God, to both treasure and hold dear all that was Holy and to lead this whole world in worship, adoration and knowledge of the One True and only God.

      Steve, when you see the glory, when you see the beauty there is hope. I know.

      So, Now I will pray and I know the Lord will answer this prayer because it is his will… Lord, thank you so much for Steve for his pain and for his words. He has seen the horror Lord,and even in the pain he cries to you for help. Now Lord, let him see the beauty, let him know you, and who you really are – your love, your compassion, your righteousness, that he would know that he is made even in your image and the things that have brought him such pain also bring pain to you, and Lord there are many Steve’s out there who have never met you or had you stand beside them when they were dying and in a deep dark pit, they have never called on your name because all they have been told of you is what the “religions” say…Lord, please show yourself to them, let them hear your still small voice, let them know there is no pit so deep that you are not deeper still, in your precious name Lord, that beautiful name of Jesus. Amen

  • px fragonard

    I’m curious to know how long the conversion took. Does anyone know?

  • C dez

    She renounced Jesus Christmas as her lord and savior. To her, Jesus did not die for our sins. Sad that she renounced Jesus Christ.

    • Joe Kent

      1st of all Jesus came to earth through the Jews so on earth the earthly vessel was Jewish. He did observe the Jews traditions and the LAW. as a result we are very grateful for the Jews and the Jews. I love them. Because I was born in Egypt from European parents (christians of course) I love the Arab muslimstoo and would love for both to live in peace. One day this will happen as it was prophesied in the Holy Bible. Re the daughter adopting the Jewish religion, I am disappointed of course, but I am also thinking she did not go too far. It could have been somethin else. I am hoping that one day the daughter and the other people in the Jewish Religion will see that Jesus is the fulfillment of the messianic promises given by God the Almighty. Let us pray for this because Israel has a special place in God’s merciful heart.

      • Joe Kent

        Your comments are full of swearwords and racist does not command high culture and refined behaviour. It does show something not to be respected and

        • Joe Kent

          this answer is in response to a comment made below insulting mexicans and other religious and ethnic groups. the system here messed up and the programmers need to address this

        • Stephen Garramone

          God has no favorites. In my life I have met just as many Jewish jerks as non-Jews. Also, Christians and Jews have no monopoly on how to worship God. So quit feeling so sorry that she is not worshipping in the Christian manner. That is insulting and condescending and would get your jaw broken if said to the wrong person. She’ll get to heaven probably quicker than your condescending self as that is one thing God hates – hypocrites.

          • Jesus gets people to heaven, none one or nothing else will. To deny Jesus of Nazareth as the Messiah is to condemn oneself. The Messianic Jews are those whose worship Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the Son of God, who came to take our sins upon Himself on the cross. If we ask Him for forgiveness, He will save us. Forgiveness through Him is our ONLY way to salvation.

            By the way, the hypocrites you refer to were the priests who essentially said, “do as I say, not as I do”.

      • px fragonard

        He didn’t observe the law, which is why he was criticized for eating and drinking with publicans and sinners. That was breaking the law. He claimed he WAS the law in human form.

      • Chrustian

        And Jesus rejected Jewish Law and the Old convenient He came to correct the evils of Judism

    • skaizun

      Jesus was born, raised, and died a Jew.
      So, when are YOU going to convert, hypocrite?

      • AlgeMeiner

        Wrong. He was the first Christian. He believed in himself before anyone else did.

        • John

          Sorry if you research a Concordance you will see the word Christian was never used till approx. 30 years after Jesus’ death. The word Christian means you are a follower of Jesus Christ.

      • Missy Victoria

        Jesus was a Jew by blood and a Jew religiously UNTIL He started His own ministry. Ivanka is not a Jewess by blood.. only a Jewess religiously.

        • John

          Jesus lived his entire life as a Jew, the word Christian was never used till approx. 30 years after his death.

      • MadMagyar

        Um, . . . the word “Jew” meant a “Judean” – one who merely lived in that area (the lower kingdom of Judea). ANYBODY, whether Moabite, Canaanite, or Israelite was referred to as someone who was a Judean. It’s the same as one who lives in the U.S. being referred to as an American (sometimes Canadians and even Mexicans can be technically called “Americans”). Jesus (Yeshua bar Jusef), was an ISRAELITE, of the tribe of Judah, line of David. Don’t be deceived by the labels. The so-called “Jews” scattered throughout the world or living IN the current day STATE of Israel(most of them Ashkenazi Jews, and not actually of any bloodlines of the tribes of Israel) are merely “Jews” by fact of locality, whether current or ancient familial locality. As to “religious” Judaism, “Talmudic” Judaism specifically rejects Jesus as Messiah (just read some of the horrible things it says about Him and His mother), but it is also known as BABYLONIAN Talmudism. Not at all the same as the original (later known as Hebraic) teachings from God that Noah, Abraham and Moses followed. The Lower Kingdom was captured and most of the Israelites were carried off to Babylon, whereupon they adopted the Babylonian’s religion and Talmud, just to survive. It’s basically bull / Mammon idol worship and materialism. That’s why Jesus threw the money-changers (material worshippers) out of the Temple. They had taken the place over and replaced worship of God with worship of material/money, just as the “Jewish” controlled courts are today – all about financial transactions (read the legal definition of “attorney”). Note that the symbol of Wall Street is that big bull statute, originally installed outside the stock exchange. New York is the “Jewish” capital of the world, not Jerusalem. Jesus has nothing to do, or in common with, that kind of “Jew”.

  • Stacy Fugleberg

    I was encouraged by H. Davies below and want to add, only out of love, that Christianity is a seamless transition from Judaism because Jesus did fulfill the prophecies and does not save our souls from our sinful nature by coming as a warrior. He defeats Satan and is victorious in his sacrifice for our souls. Giving us the ability to spend our eternity with God. Believe me. I am not a Bible Thumper nor anywhere near being a good Christian, nor person for that matter. My grandfather was actually Jewish, my mother, Christian but half Jew and I, a cultured Christian. I stay Christian with growing love for Jesus because, intellectually, God’s plan of atonement through the old and new testaments make sense. There is absolutely Zero that we can do to be able to tell God that we are worthy of his Kingdom. Shalom and Peace be with you.

  • Anyone that raises his hand to Hitler, supports the KKK, and does not know or follow the Golden Rule is not and will never be a Jewish father. Ivanka should disown her father before anyone accepts her attempt at Judaism. Ivanka should be ashamed to try to peddle off her conversion (which would have never happened had she not married a Jewish person). If she truly wanted to be Jewish she should have made that decision before marrying a jew.

  • First of all, you can not be converted to Judaism. Jews have permitted it for years laughing behind the so-called converts’ backs. YOU ARE NOT JEWISH UNLESS YOUR MOTHER IS JEWISH !!!
    Now, PERIOD !
    Jewish fathers can not make Jews without a Jewish wife. That is the way it is. AND there is no such thing as a half-Jew. Jewish Mom or no baby Jew…..Got it ???? !!!

    • Roger

      Utter rubbish. Of course any one can convert to become Jewish provided they go through an appropriate process to learn and illustrate genuine commitment.

      I think he refers to Jews by birth, which require a Jewish mother. But that does not preclude a genuine convert, joining the ranks.

    • Morris Stein

      There’s plenty to be thankful for here on Trump’s connection with Judaism, yet you choose to still criticize. We need all the friends we can find and alienating people is not the way to do it!

    • Whitney Aronson

      To the person who claims that one cannot convert to Judaism and that Jews caught at “so-called converts” behind their back… You are COMPLETELY WRONG. People, if you are reading THIS IS NOT TRUE!!!!

      Jews do not seek to convert people, and we make people go through a very thorough educational process in order to convert. It is a multi-step commitment and can take years. But once a Jew-by-choice has completed the conversion process, THEY ARE JEWS, and they are welcomed by the community.

      RUTH converted, and she is one of the most revered figures in Judaism.

      So, I don’t know what this person is talking about, or if he had bad experiences with ignorant people, but he is JUST PLAIN WRONG.

    • PamelaScharaga

      Jews used to proselytise before the Romans made it so dangerous. Ruth was not born Jewish. So according to Adam Swanstein King David ,Solomon and the Mashiach were and will not be Jewish. In fact once a person converts to Judaism their soul is considered to have been at Sinai. It is considered the height of ill manners to ask someone if they are a convert. Adam Swanstein needs to go back to Judaism 101.

      • Dimitrij Fedorov

        Adam Swanstein needs to go back to some logic 🙂 Did Avraham avinu have a Jewish mother? If yes, how did she become Jewish? If conversion (as per Swanstein) is impossible, there must have been an unbroken matrilineal chain all the way to … where? Chavah? Which would mean that everyone is Jewish. Or no-one is.

    • Helena Sorenson

      When one converts by a reputable rabbi and go to the mikveh, it is as though they were born Jewish. Read the story of Ruth and Naomi…

    • NJII

      You can convert to Judaism, but the Jews won’t accept you unless your mom is Jewish. You cannot migrate to Israel if you are a converted Jew.

      • Getald Fnord

        Utter nonsense.

          How does the saying go? Better to keep your peace, lest someone think you’re a fool rather than to speak and remove all doubt?

      • jan freed

        Change that to ‘some Jews won’t accept you’. That’s their problem.

      • David

        This is a total falsehood. In 1972, the Law of Return was amended. Those with a single Jewish Grandparent, those who are married to a Jew and converts are all accepted under this law.

      • px fragonard

        BS: I accept my cousin and her kids as Jewish and, unlike you, I’m Jewish, so I ought to know better than you, since I know if from actual experience, whereas your “knowledge” is strictly rumor-mill manufacture.

    • Benvita

      You know nothing about Judaism; it is clear that one can convert to Judaism.
      The truth is that true conversion can only be performed by Orthodox rabbis (and most of the great rabbis say that only if done in Israel), and the only reason must be because you discovered that Judaism is the truth.
      Conversions motivated for any other reason is not accepted by orthodox community, and the reason is simple: if you want to convert to Judaism, you should practice Judaism: eat kosher, respect the laws of Shabbat and Jewish holidays, etc.
      And what we see is that most who “wants to be converted” does to marry a Jew. So those type of “convertion” is just accepted by reform judaism.

      • Gina Avendano

        Totally True! Plus you forgot to mention that Orthodox jews woman have to cover their hair and use modest clothing (skirt under knees, etc) and I haven’t seen Ivanka with either of it. So like you mentioned: it was probably reform judaism.

    • Dovie


      Ruth (Rus) , Onkelos, Rabbi Akiva from Converts.

      Adam go learn.

    • The real Jews are black!

      • Joe Kent

        the real Jews are neither white nor blacks. They were similar to the Phoenicians. Because of the prolonged persecutions, the Jewish people assimilated some other cultures.

    • Mackykam

      Well, ignoramus, Ruth wasn’t Jewish born yet she became the great grandmother of King David.
      I also seem to recall Zipporah, Moses’ wife wasn’t born Jewish either!
      Neither was Joseph’s wife born Jewish, who became the ancestress of Manasseh and Ephraim.

      • px fragonard


    • px fragonard

      Untrue. Jews did very well in the conversion business but the backlash convinced the Rabbis to stop the practice. Now, people have to approach. No more proselytization. BTW: The Idumeans were converted by the sword.

    • of course anybody can convert into Judaism and they are fully received. An example in the Bible is Ruth. “….your people will be my people”.

  • יעקב


    We are called by our ancient prophets to be men and women of peace, justice, and mercy. I do not understand how Orthodox Jewish men and women can believe the ethics of Isaiah, Amos, Habakkuk et al. and support this kind of political views.

      Takes a shallow Orthodox Rabbi to be bought off by Trump to allow this conversion-not a single person know would be allowed to covert to orthodox judaism dressed like her in the present time-shows the corruption goes beyond thr Trumps. Funny how no one looks into this.

    • Julie

      Jewish women are among some of the most well dressed people in the world. God looks on the heart. Jews are well known for their exquisite diamonds and I am not sure why you would think God would support attacking someone’s motive in faith.

  • Well , well , well, The old Donald turned out to be a racist bigot and Islam-aphobe.I wonder if he taught his Jewish daughter those values.Maybe he also taught her to hate those lazy , thieving Mexicans who are on drugs.

    What the hell is this hateful self absorbed incorrigible doing running for the highest office in the land.

    What the hell is America coming to.

    • H Davies

      Just because Mr Trump doesn’t approve of illegals (disobeying the law) doesn’t mean he hates Mexicans. What have illegals cost us in jobs and welfare? How has that affected our budget and employment? Have you also not considered how many millions have been leaving our country for many years, to send money back to Mexico, India, African nations, Asian nations, each month? It must be a staggering figure. I don’t know how we’ve managed to survive this long.

      • MaxB

        Oh, he approves of illegals, alright – just look how many he’s employed over the years. He also knows that _saying_ he disapproves is enough to fool people like you. Deeds, not words, matter, and very few of the Donald’s actions line up with what he’s been saying. You should be very, very careful of what you’re buying here.

      • Well good onya Mike baker, you like to tell it like it is! The problem, as I see it, is that you had better have proof before stating in print, that Ivanka Kushner’s husband is, in fact, a criminal. I am not sure why being a Jew makes him a criminal in your eyes, but there is no doubt that as a professional hater (and probably one who seethes with jealousy for his success), appears to infuriate you. That’s really sad, because without Mr. kushner’s faith, you would probably not be here today. After all, I am assuming that you are either a Christian or an athiest. If a Christian, perhaps you should be aware that Jesus was born, circumcized and died as a Jew and according to the Roman Empire, he was a “jew criminal” too, because of his anti-Roman activities.

        So maybe you shoud re-think your terminology, especially at this time of year.

        • Genevieve Banda

          Norman Ross, Please don’t assume that Baker could be a Christian. You have two clues that he isn’t. Christians don’t use vulgarities, and especially in print. Christians don’t disparage Jews, ever. Every, (born again; not cultural Christian who never goes to church or who never reads the bible), Christian absolutely knows that Jesus was/is a Jew. Every Christian respects Jews, ( Genesis 12: 1-3). Every Christian supports Israel politically and financially.

          • janice henderson

            Amen sister…. Our Lord Jesus Christ is a Jew…

          • Vincent

            There are Jews that are good people, and there are Jews that are bad people. Christians are not supposed to “worship” Jews. That is what JUDAISM, not Christianity, teaches. Also, Jews mostly all HATE Christianity and Christians. Jews’ most holy book the Talmud teaches that “Christ is in hell boiling in a pot of his own excrement” and “Mother Mary was a whore who slept with carpenters.” Truth.

          • Frosty7530

            Ms Banda:

            I wish your response was OK. As a Jew, I’ve been a strong supporter of Pastor Hagee and CUFI for several years. They are wonderful people who have made historic success in friendship between Christians/Israel/Global Jewry. Sadly,not all Evangelical Christians support Hagee’s views on Jews & Conversion and there are problems between “mainstream” protestant groups, who support the Palestinians and boycotting/divesting Israel. The new Pope, just last week, made increased efforts in friendship W Iran. Most Jews consider mainstream Christian groups like the Methodists and Presbyterians to be Christian as well as Catholics. In recent history, Pres. Jimmy Carter, a man who has always thought of himself as a strong Christian, made huge increases in anti-Semitism universal. His dislike of Israel, comparing it to colonial apartheid S. Africa & accusing us of being “occupiers” in re to Palestine. Many Christian Americans think of Carter as a great humanitarian, his views of Jews have made it once again, OK, to hate Jews. (please don’t bother telling me it’s all about Israel’s govt and not hating Jews).
            I thank you for your support of Israel, and wish everybody else agreed with you, but they do not.

          • harry

            No, we DO NOT.

          • harry

            You should of worried about Christ being a Jew when they choose Barabas over CHRIST…

          • Sorry, but every Christian who knows his/her Bible knows Jesus was not a Jew. We know the present-day Jew is actually a Khazar and not a descendant of Abraham. We know our New Testament does not support a restored Israel, a millennium for Jews or a return of Jesus from Glory to this present earth. Millions of so-called Christians in U.S.A.Have been duped by the following: Most totally mis-read and mis-understand Romans chapters 9-11. We cannot return to the O.T. to delve into God’s programme for the period from Christ onwards. He finished His dealings with those O.T. nations before Christ was born and indeed Jesus said that all the prophets prophesied ‘until John Baptist’. That era was finished in essence and in actuality A.D.70 with the fall of Jerusalem and around A.D. 300 with the fall of the Roman Empire, these two latter being in fulfiment of Daniel 9:24-27. To follow the idea of the modern churches who are continuing on from the falsities of two Jewish Jesuits is to pursue error. The two are:Emanuel de Lacunza, (Rabbi Juan Josaphat Ben Ezra), book published 1812 “The Coming of the Messiah in Glory and Majesty’ and Francisco Ribera, 16th cent. who followed an interpretation of the O.T. prophecies as being restricted to the end of the world. Both books are heresies, doctrines of demons and Jewish myths. Evangelical, Pentecostal, Charismatic and Fundamentalist Churches and Colleges/Seminaries follow these two heresies as then produced in a book by John Nelson Darby, 1828.

            I think you’re indulging in a True Scotsman argument. When we say ‘Christian’, we can’t restrict the definition solely to those professing Christians who agree with you entirely in all significant matters.

          Good reply to Mike. Could not have said it better myself.

          • David

            Does Irina even know what a Khazar is? It is well documented that the majority of Jews are not of this background. The Khazars were of a kingdom where the king chose to convert to Judaism, but they later converted to Christianity. There are minimal numbers of Jews today who are descended from this group.

        Mike baker, before you call people names, make accusations, and come up with vulgar images, go back to school and learn how to write proper English. All you have done is shown us that you are as intolerant as “this trump guy.”

      • Genevieve Banda

        Why are you so vulgar?

    • Genevieve Banda

      Why the vulgarity; hell? Trump never said Mexicans were druggies or thieves. He also never said he was against Islam. Where do you get this stuff? He did say these things about SOME Mexicans and SOME Islamists. Any intelligent mind knows those are not blanket statements. For whatever it’s worth, Trump is not my first choice or second, but fair is fair.

      • Getald Fnord

        First he made strong and definite statements about the ‘people Mexico sends’, without reference to their immigration status, saying ‘they’re rapists’ and ‘the worst people’, then he made a vague and half-hearted step back. How would you take ‘Jews are cheats and blood-drinkers…and I assume some of them are good people.’?

        (And he’s just saying whatever he thinks the mob will snap-up, he doesn’ t care about veracity. He’s throwing them meat—someday that meat wil be you.)

    First of all I’d like to thank everyone’s support over here, not that I need any support, it’s still nice to see that there are still some smart people left in this world.
    Second of all, my daughter is fully Jewish all the way I didn’t even know there were rumors saying otherwise. See we can’t even keep up with all the lies that people say.
    Third of all, to the woman who had questions about healthcare, please direct your questions to my campaign office they will be able to answer all your questions much better than just shouting out your problems for the whole world to see.
    Thank you, and see ya in the white house 2016!

      You are glad your daughter converted to Judaism?

      I mean no disrespect to her or you but perhaps she should some day consider these words especially if she had been a baptized Christian:

      Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven. 33But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven.

      St. Matthew 10:32.

          As well, Jewish support for Abortion has resulted in the murder of over a hundred million goyisher aka Gentile babies.Jews should be grateful that they were allowed into America.

          Of course, Whitey might put the kibosh on the genocidal plans of their enemies, so stay tuned.

  • Superman

    Further evidence that Donald Trump is not saved. His own daughter rejects Jesus as the Christ.

    To the Jews…if Jesus is not your Messiah, then who is?!? Jews today don’t even know which tribe they are from!…so finding a direct descendant to King David is near impossible. Furthermore, Jews today are not doing animal sacrifices for repentance of sins…so you are violating your own laws. The truth is you can not enter into God’s presence through your works!! The only way to be with the LORD is by His grace through His Son, Jesus. If you want to be with the LORD forever, you need to BELIEVE that Jesus (God the Son) died for your sins on the cross, was buried, and was raised on the third day, according to Scripture.

    • dovid

      you are 100% uneducated. Jews know what tribes they are from. Judah and Levi. The other 10 were lost in the diaspora. And we will not accept anyone claiming to be messiah until he fulfills ALL that the prophets said he will. Forgiveness for sins is accomplished through prayer, as your own bible tells you if you read it ALL and not the few parts your preachers tell you for the sake of indoctrination.

      • Frosty7530

        Thank you Dovid for standing up to some of these self righteous bullies!

    • Superman see for who we think moshiach is… How about it… Don’t tell me what my Bible says, g-d gave it to us for a reason, I’ll tell YOU who moshiach is:he is the rebbe king moshiach shlita of chabad Lubavitsh which wrote many articles in this newspaper and had a bigger effect on the jewish people then your friend…

    • H Davies

      I’m a 100% practicing Christian and I don’t expect Jews to convert to Christianity. God made a covenant with the Jews. He said He’d put His law in their inward parts and write it on their hearts. Jeremiah 31:31-34. So Jews have a different covenant than Christians. They are not converting to Yeshua but seeking their Messiah, per Rabbi Jonathan Bernis of Jewish Voice Ministries.

      Regarding Ivanka, only she and God knows what is in her heart. I believe she was taught about Jesus since she was raised by Christian parents. Just because she embraces Judaism doesn’t mean she rejects Jesus. Only God knows what is in her heart. She can practice the Jewish faith and be Christian. I embrace Judaism and respect it greatly. So much of Christian study comes from the Old Testament.

      • Stacy Fugleberg

        H. Thank you for this encouraging post. I just did early voting for Trump because our country needs the way his God-given mind works. He will be surrounded by plenty of advisors for some of his choices as President. However, I did wake up this morning thinking about lovely Ivanka, almost in distress, how it can be possible to accept and believe that Jesus is God and the fulfillment of the prophecies then become Jewish to proclaim the opposite, that he was some Jewish guy that just got himself in trouble and strung up. I’ve heard some Jews say he was a prophet but not divine which surely cannot be true amongst the Jewish ranks because that’s like saying he was sent by God if he is deemed to be a prophet, therefore, if he was sent by God, his words, all his words, should be adhered to. A prophet is not srnt by God to partially execute God’s message. No Jew will do that nor cross the line of “Thou shalt have no other gods before me” as they cannot understand the Trinity nor recognize that God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are 3 persons (job duties) in one True, Holy and Everlasting God. It would be impossible to Worship Jesus. I don’t even know if they plan on their messiah being divine and worthy of worship. They are under their own covenant, chosen because of their ability to adhere to the law which proved our understanding and acceptance that we cannot be perfect, that we have to be perfect to be in God’s presence and our inevitable need for the Grace Christ’s death and resurrection provided so God will see us as cleansed and perfect. Jesus was the Christ, the final blood of the lamb that God recognizes for the forgiveness of our sinful condition. The Jews are to be loved and protected but I fear for the soul who knows that truth and then rejects it. I rejoice in the soul, especially a Messianic Jew, like so many Jews before, who accept Jesus as Messiah God and know we must just let the Holy Spirit do his job as only God knows a person’s heart and who his children are.

    Good job on the whole ‘ sell out Hillary, scare us with Jeb but bring in trump to tell us he’s going to save us from all the problems you’ve created, right on the eve of the financial implosion you’ve been waiting seven years to push the button on. Bloody brilliant. These things meet up with your prophecy because you make them to. Not by coincidence. And if it is ‘chance,’ then it’s the chance induced by Satan.
    I can think of nothing worse than being a Jewish person in a Zionist world. Good people love you and do not hold you accountable for the unthinkable atrocities of ‘the syanaqoue of satan’ (as they are referred to in Revelations).

    For those who have no idea what I’m talking about,,sorry. It’s complicated and they call you names if you talk about it.

    • mgoldberg

      ‘the syanaqoue of satan’ (as they are referred to in Revelations’

      Well, your misspelling does justice to the wretched concept of the synagogue of satan
      that defines and defines what IS WRONG with the christian belief that depends on such a notion and utter falsehood.
      Of course, you’ll use the equivalent argument that boils down to ‘you beat your wife’
      which of course has no refutation :^))

  • The Jews have the 100% control of the US government, the Banks, the News media, etc… Not even the government but every corner of our society. John F. Kennedy said that in 1962.

        Obviously not a Jewish newspaper, which proves the assertion false.

    • H Davies

      God approves of the Jew so that behooves us to do so as well. Let me quote Genesis 12:3. God is speaking to the Jews and says, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” So Jews are here to bless the world. Live by your own standards but they aren’t God’s.

    Let’s see how much of an attack Trump launches on political correctness when some of his would be supporters begin to cry out that the jews have too much influence upon U.S. domestic politics foreign policy. We will see Trump suddenly exhibiting politically correct speech on a scale we have never heard before. I can’t wait.

  • Brendan Dunphy

    Trump has zero integrity and zero accountability. He allows his companies to file bankruptcy (at least four times at last count), but only after first pulling his enormous salaries, essentially at the expense of his creditors. Not the ideal candidate for pulling the USA out of debt. If you support Trump, you clearly have that same level of integrity and accountability.

    If you become president how will you handle my problem of not being able to get safe medical care or diagnosed.

    • Yaakov

      Carol, I am glad you’ve asked. First I would get rid of Obamacare except only catastrophic care. Then I would promote a concierge plan. What that means is that doctors would open clinics that had all the basic services. These services would be so inexpensive because their would be no insurance company to pay. The doctors would be given tax credits to treat the indigent and poor. 2 days a week would be to treat the poor, and doctors would love to because they make a lot of money and need the tax credits. Then the catastrophic insurance would be all that is needed and that is already supplied to all Medicaid recipients as it stands, even undocumented aliens.

      • Allison

        Yaakov, are you kidding? I suffered a traumatic brain injury and am on disability. I also suffer from severe depression due to the injury I sustained. I worked very hard and had assistance from the disability department at my university so I could finish my bachelors’ degree. I have difficulty keeping jobs because I am now also learning-disabled and am a slow learner. I try harder than most people at work to NOT make mistakes, but since I appear high-functioning, no one believes me. I am barely surviving financially on a part-time job in a store and disability. I want to find a better, FULL-TIME job and get off my disability, but no one will hire me because I have an invisible disability. Employers get tax credits if they hire someone with a disability. They don’t want to deal with someone who needs additional help, even if that means my job coach will accompany me to the job site and help me learn the job at NO EXPENSE to them. I have been trying for several years and am getting nowhere. After the interview, employers tell me they “found someone else” for the job as soon as I tell them I have a disability. I get Medicare, but I work part-time at a store so I can pay for medical assistance to pay for my prescriptions. I grew up in a very well-to-do family and never had to worry about food, whether I would have a roof over my head or a JOB. If you really think that doctors are just going to provide medical care for free for the sake of tax credits, you are sorely mistaken. I can’t even afford a dental visit for a teeth cleaning because Medicare/Medicaid doesn’t provide that under the plan. Until you have walked in my shoes, you cannot have empathy. You cannot truly SEE how the other half, the underprivileged, live. And, yes, I am a caucasian-American citizen who was born in the U.S. 50 years ago to parents who were also born and raised in the U.S. I am also Jewish.

As we all know, a gentile mother cannot have a Jewish baby because the true father of every child is the Father of the gentiles, and we are his chosen people. It is a true message and miracle when a baby is saved in this way. May we honor the Lord, Jesus Christ for this beautiful gift.

        The Torah treats the Proselyte as a Jew. Her children are all 100% Jewish since she converted properly. I know your sad Teddy, but since that is the case Teddy, your soul is saved. Otherwise your blessing for the child to be Xtian would of sent many curses your way from Hashem.
