Rabbi Marc Schneier, rabbi of the wealthy Hamptons Synagogue and the head of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding, an organization that promotes Jewish-Islamic “ties”, is working hard to soft sell Islam’s image to evangelical Christians in America, by taking advantage of their enthusiastic support for Israel:
Saudi Arabia and Bahrain believe the road to US evangelicals runs through the Jews….
“I’ve been asked by the Saudis and the Bahrainis to help create a relationship between them and the Evangelical community in the US,” [Rabbi Schneier] said in an interview in Jerusalem on a lengthy stopover to and from the Gulf States, adding that this is a recognition on their part of how influential the Evangelical community is in the US.”
Schneier, who sits on the board of a number of interfaith institutes set up over the last decade by five of the six Persian Gulf emirates, said this interest in the Evangelical community is a new phenomenon “over the last few months, after [US President Donald] Trump. You cannot ignore estimates that there are between 80 to 100 million Christian Evangelicals [in the US]. They are Trump’s base of support.”
Schneier said that in March he will be leading a group of top Evangelical pastors from the US to Baku, Azerbaijan. Just as Evangelicals are pro-Israel, Schneier said, Azerbaijan is a pro-Israel Muslim state. “So if you are going to begin a process of reconciliation between Evangelicals and Muslims, the best country to begin with is Azerbaijan.”
Schneier, who has been involved in interfaith dialogues for years, said that a “growing conflict in the inter-religious world is the chasm between Evangelical Christians and Muslims, particularly in the United States.”
He said that while there are definitely political considerations involved in the Persian Gulf states’s interest in ties with the Evangelicals, “I think there are also inter-religious considerations. I think they are genuinely concerned about presenting Islam in a very different way.”
Schneier was named earlier this month as named a special adviser to Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, with a dual mandate of advising him in the building of a new interfaith center in Manama, and helping him “grow and preserve” Bahrain’s Jewish community.
Currently, Schneier said, there are 37 Jews in the kingdom. Schneier said that after he accepted the appointment, he told Khalifa, “Your Majesty, one thing I guarantee you, if you establish relations with Israel, you’ll have so many Jews here you won’t know what to do with them.”
Schneier predicted that Bahrain will formally establish relations with Israel within the year.
…Another widely held misconception, Schneier said, is that the driving force behind the Persian Gulf’s interest in ties with Israel is the Iranian threat. Rather, he maintained, the main motivation has to do with the economy.
“Many of these Gulf States are facing an existential threat economically, in terms of the lowered demand for oil,” he said. “How many times have I heard from the Saudi and Qatari leadership, and others, ‘Rabbi, with our wealth and Israel’s brain trust and technology, we could build the most powerful region in the world today.
“They have two existential concerns, the economic concern and challenge, and the Iranian threat,” he continued. “Because of that they are moving closer to Israel, and because of that they are focused on intensely cementing their relationship with the United States and with the Trump administration – and the outreach to the Evangelical community helps cement that.”
Jews have used Muslim Arabs to undermine White Christian nations for the last 1,500 years, and they continue to use this highly successful “business arrangement” even today to soften up Christians natural resistance to Islam, which aims to destroy all Christians, whom they consider “infidels” who worship a pagan idol, Jesus Christ. Christianity is antithetical to Islam and Judaism, and any capitulation to these ideologies would be disastrous.
Christians evangelicals in time will find out the hard way that their support of the jewish State of Israel, and Jews in general, will cost them dearly with their blind support of the genocide of the Palestinians, and a widening conflagration in the Middle East, over which the Israelis dream of complete control using the U.S. military as their proxy army. If the Jews can convince Christians to soften their stance against Islam, they will ultimately be putting their collective heads on the chopping block, which would please the Jews to no end.
