Messianic Leaders Call on U.S. to Retract Israeli Demands

The Messianic Jewish Alliance of America (MJAA) has launched an aggressive campaign to protest U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's condemnation of Israel last month for announcing plans to build 1,600 apartments on disputed land in east Jerusalem.

MJAA criticized Clinton for giving a "43-minute tongue-lashing to Israeli Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu," and slammed the presidential aides who denounced Israel in the news media, blaming the Jewish state—and not terrorists—for blocking peace talks.

Christians and Messianic Jews alike have signed the "I Stand With Israel" petition calling on Clinton to retract several statements she made, including demands that "Israel ban Jewish citizens from building within its own borders" and that the country "negotiate from a position of weakness" with Palestinians.

"Muslim terrorists who control the Palestinian Authority don't want the state of Israel to exist-and they demand that Jewish Israelis stop building homes, which the terrorists call ‘occupation,'" MJAA said in a statement. "Now our government is trying to appease the terrorists, which will only lead to more aggressive behavior."

The petition also called on Clinton to recognize Jerusalem as the "undivided capital of the Jewish state" and to acknowledge that "Islamic terrorism is the primary barrier to peace." The group wants Clinton to "condemn terrorists rather than Israel."

In a letter sent this week, MJAA CEO Joel Chernoff called on Israel supporters to get involved. "The U.S. government just launched the most bitter, shocking-and utterly misleading-condemnation of Israel in our nation's history," Chernoff wrote. "All who love Israel and the Jewish people need to take action today."
