Jews for Jesus Keeps Up with the City that Never Sleeps

NEW YORK – Often called the city that never sleeps, New York and its busy streets and subways are seeing more of a group of missionaries with backs adorned with “Jews for Jesus” this month.

 


Clothed in colorful shirts with large writing identifying their Christian group, Jews for Jesus has been keeping up with the 24-hour-running city, handing out tens of thousands of literature and promoting their evangelistic campaign – Behold Your God – through media outlets. This is their largest campaign ever and the finale to their 5-1/2 year effort of reaching cities worldwide with large Jewish populations. [Continuing their age-old attempt to destroy the Jewish people, who do not accept their way of  thinking.]

On Independence Day alone, 60 Jews for Jesus staff and volunteers distributed over 74,500 tracts throughout Manhattan where street fairs, holiday festivities and fireworks shows drew large crowds to the city. A “

Happy Fourth of July” was written on the front of the tract with a holiday-specific Christian cartoon.

When asked if the Jewish Christian staff were met with any opposition to their month-long campaign, Dan Sered, campaign leader for the Manhattan borough, said he saw no counter-leafleting or hostile responses from the public. Nevertheless, Sered doesn’t expect it to be an easy ride.

“We’ll probably get them (counter responses) later on but usually on the fourth they have the day off,” said Sered. “They do it more when it’s convenient to them. They’ll have people on the way to work stop and start to counter.” [Thank GOd for that!] Read more

Egyptian Child Slavery comes to Orange County

An Egyptian couple bring over a child to cook, clean, and take care of children, while living in squalor in the garage. She is paid $30 a month and could not leave the house. Thankfully the couple have been arrested and the girl freed.

Abdelnasser Eid Youssef Ibrahim, 45, and Amal Ahmed Ewis-abd Motelib, 43, admitted bringing the girl, now 16, from Egypt in 2000, then making her work as a servant to their family of seven from August 2000 to April 2002.

A “Professor” interviewed for the LA Times article said that this case is unusual because “child-maids” are not often brought to the west, where it is common practice in Egypt. He said “child-maid” and not slave, and then went on about how the practice is starting to be phased out in Egypt. Phased out! This is slavery pure and simple and they print his euphemism of child-maid. This is just the tip of the iceberg.

According to the Feds:

The girl is one of 53 human-trafficking victims in Orange County, according to Bob Jones, with St. Anselm’s Cross-Cultural Community Center, a member of the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force. Most of the female victims who can apply for green cards choose to stay in this country.

More so-called child maids are certainly out there in the posh wilderness of the OC. Funny, I imagine that no episodes of that TV Show “The OC” ever discussed child slavery.
