The missionary assault in Israel's south has taken a dangerous turn for the worse as more than 100,000 Jews recently received SMS messages to their cell phones inviting them to order, free of change, materials promising "salvation" via their connection to J.
The missionaries are waging a massive shemad campaign throughout southern Israel. As part of the campaign, they are unfurling huge banners at busy intersections and distributing spiritually poisonous propaganda to passersby

"On Monday, Nov. 5, I'll be flying to Israel to preach to Holocaust survivors on Nov. 8, 9 and 10. All I want to do is communicate with them directly and bring them the truth about J. and how he can bless them and their children. These survivors want to hear about J. and he wants to meet with them."
That missionaries have no limits to how low they'll stoop is nothing new to Yad L'Achim, which has been battling them for decades. But their latest, despicable ploy is stunning in its audacity, deceit and sacrilege
