The Evengelicals, in particular, are generally supportive of Israel and the Jewish people, but again, no matter how they sell that, it isnt for the sake of the Jewish people, it is because they have beliefs that are predicated on the actions of the Jewish people and Israel. It is about them. It also gets very uncomfortable the way some of them lord it over Jews just how supportive they are of Jews.

It happens everywhere. It seems worse in Mississippi.
What about Messianic Jews?

Having said that, Messianic Judaism is an statistical anomaly. They dont exist in number that could or do change the issue. I have no desire to get into a religious conversation, so I will just stick to statistics...which also shows that very few "Messianic Jews" are Jewish at all.

You can declare yourself anything you want to be. I support that, but that doesnt mean I, or Jewish doctrine has to accept it as a truth.

From a personal experience, those who claim to be Messianic Jews are among the most aggressive towards Jews about conversion. This is amplified by the fact the Messianic Jews tend to hang out in places where you will find Jews, such as a Kosher store or place to eat.
