JNS.orgThe son of Father Gabriel Nadaf, a Greek Orthodox priest who is a leading advocate of Christian enlistment in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), was attacked over the weekend. Father Nadaf said his pro-IDF stance motivated the attack on his son.

According to reports, Nadaf’s 17-year-old son was walking down a street when a 21-year-old political activist from a group that opposes Arab conscription hurled verbal insults at him and struck him with a stick. Nadaf’s son was briefly hospitalized.

“The Arab [Knesset] parties have been inciting against me ever since I started calling on Christians to join the military or participate in other forms of national service. The incitement turned from verbal threats to severe physical violence,” Father Nadaf said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the attack and vowed to protect anyone seeking to defend Israel.

“This is highly disturbing; I heard that there were physical attacks by extremists on Christians, Christian Arabs who want to enlist in the IDF and who want to be part of the State of Israel… this will not stand; I will not tolerate this,” Netanyahu said of the attack on Sunday, Israel Hayom reported.

    Christians that live in the Middle East know well that only Israel offers them safe haven and full freedom to practice their religion.

    To the global Jew haters, media like the NY Times, the gaza based nazi owned haaretz and msnbc, as well as obama and his cult of Jew haters, that reality is anathema to their core goals and must be stifled

  • No intelligent and decent human being should be surprised at the behaviour of the followers of Muhammad (Muslims) no matter how depraved and or evil it may be.
    Muhammad’s Quran & Sunna (the foundations of Sharia) FORBID all believing Muslims from being loyal to or under the rule of Jews, Christians or any none Muslims

    Believing Muslims can only be either Traitors/ Terrorists in waiting or Traitors/ Terrorists in action

    For those who are ignorant of the facts let me share with you the following to prove my facts based on Muhammad’s Quran:

    Al Tauba 9:29 “Fight [qatiloo] those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His apostle [Muhammad] nor acknowledge the religion of truth [ISLAM] (even if they are) of the People of the Book [Christians & Jews] until they pay the Jizya [onerous Tax for not being a Muslim] with willing submission and feel themselves humiliated”

    *** Just to make sure that the listeners would believe what I am revealing, I would like to put forth a challenge worth $100,000 to the first person who can show us all a SINGLE OPERATIVE verse in Muhammad’s Quran that demonstrates any Compassion & Mercy to all UNBELIEVERS!

    Currently, Unbelievers represent 80% of humanity: All Christians Buddhists Hindus Jews Atheists Agnostics etc. That is any and all those who are NOT Muslims! $100,000 for just ONE verse from among over 6200 verses in Muhammad’s Quran!***

    Al Mai’da 5: 51 “O ye who believe (Muslims)! take not the Jews [Yahood] and the Christians [Nasara] for your friends and protectors: they are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them…”

    Al Imran 3:85 ” If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah) never will it be accepted of him …”

    Al Tauba 9:33 “It is He (Allah) who hath sent His apostle (Muhammad) with guidance and the religion of truth (Islam) to proclaim it over all other religions …”

    Muhammad 47:4 “Therefore when ye meet the Unbelievers smite at their necks; at length when ye have thoroughly subdued them bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom”

    *** These verses remind me of Hitler’s Mein Kampf! The NAZI Master Race creed ***
