Sarah Palin's Ties to Jews for Jesus

Among everything else, does Sarah Palin support Jews for Jesus?

Sarah Palin was in church two weeks ago when David Brickner, the Jews for Jesus founder, stopped by to spread a little anti-Semitism. Brickner has been quoted as describing terrorist attacks on Israeli's as God's judgment of unbelief of Jews who haven't embraced Christianity.

And here is what Palin's pastor had to say about Brickner: "He’s a leader of Jews for Jesus, a ministry that is out on the leading edge in a pressing, demanding area of witnessing and evangelism."

Does it bother you? Is Sarah Palin responsible for the actions of her church and her pastor? Is it yet more proof that Sarah Palin should not be our next VP? Let yourself be heard!

Zuz, Thats rediculous!!!!!
The complaints about Obama were not just that something objectionable was said by his pastor but rather that this is the person he chose to become close with for many years and the comments were continous over the years.
If an idiot comes to a synagogue and bashes gays and bashes gays and the Rabbi introduces who he is and says one nice statement about him, does that make everyone in the congragation a gay-bashser? No, but if the rabbi constnatly bashes homosexuals and a congregant than chooses to become close friends with the Rabbi then you can and should question the congregant.
Lets be real!

Sarah Palin's pastor hardly said just one nice statement about David Brickner! Not only did he endorse the mission of Jews for Jesus, but he took up a collection for the group in the church! (No word yet on whether Palin chipped in.)

Also, Jews for Jesus is not some harmless Jew-bashing group. Just ask the Anti-Defamation League, which has reported on its "targeting Jews for conversion with subterfuge and deception."

As I will continue to argue regarding Sarah Palin, every new detail that comes out about her continues to paint a very disturbing picture, one that the McCain campaign would have seen if not for its female-tinted glasses.

By the way, if you want to read the transcript for yourself go to:

If you want to play this game you need look no further than the esteemed J Wright. Point is, people can disagree with their religious leaders. It is okay.

Barack Obama was forced to undergo intense media scrutiny regarding Revered Wright, and the media circus only stopped when Obama denounced his relationship with the former pastor. The difference in the media's handling of the two situations proves my point exactly, that Sarah Palin is getting off easy on this one.

I’m a Jewish believer in Jesus. Many bloggers have posted the same one paragraph of the six-page transcript of David Brickner’s message, giving the false impression that he is saying that a bulldozer attack by a deranged Palestinian is God’s judgment on the Jewish people. Please read the entire message for yourself at so that you can see Brickner’s remarks in context. Please also take a look at the discussion concerning Mr. Brickner’s message at the Jews for Jesus website,

So, maybe this is a semantics issue, but a Jewish believer in Jesus (a Jew who believes that Jesus is the Christ, or messiah, and son of God), is a Christian, not a Jew.

The entire basis of Christianity, name included, stems from this one little point.

That being said, we'll try not to take things out of context unless it furthers our agenda from here on out.

I in fact posted the entire transcript of the church service in my initial comment following the post. The post was in no way intended to mislead or take David Brickner's comments out of context. Our readers expect a certain level of accuracy, and I believe that by including the link to the transcript in my comment we have guaranteed that accuracy while providing commentary on what I continue to see as a troubling, under-reported situation.

messianicmatt misrepresents David Brickner. Brickner's work is extremely damaging to the Jewish people that he calls his friends. He works consistently in devious and deceptive ways to thwart the express wishes of Jewish organizations and the state of Israel. Palin, through a spokesman, disavowed only Brickner's most extreme views of terrorism-as-judgement; she did not disavow the main thrust of Brickner's ministry, which is to convert all Jews. See for an unbiased Jewish perspective.
