‘Today most of the World unjustly goes against the Jews. Anti - Semitism, hatred and racism have reached unprecedented levels. The very survival of the Jewish state of Israel is at stake. All people of good will, who believe in the Bible as the Sacred Word of the Almighty, should make a choice and stand firmly on the side of Israel. That is what God wants them to do. In turn, they will save themselves and help God to advance His Divine Plan for the World-to-Come, which would be absolutely impossible if Israel did not exist’.
“And I will bless them that bless you, and curse him that curses you: and in you (i.e. Israel) shall all families of the earth be blessed” (Genesis 12:3).
