(iconoclasm (and , plural
The belief in, participation in, or sanction of destroying religiousand other symbols or monuments, usually with religious or political motives.)
Throughout history, Religious iconoclasm of destroying, usurping others religious iconography for the purpose of conversion and waging a religious war were committed by both Christianity and Islam (e.g. Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, The Cordoba church in Spain, many temples including but not limited to Ayodia in India) . But one would have thought that it was all part of history we read about in school and today we all have matured and live in a pluralistic and tolerant world with social norms of decency. Interestingly Muslims of the world with the exception of the Taliban’s destruction of the Bahamian Buddhist statues in Afghanistan, for the most part have given up on this vile practice, particularly in India,. However, Christian evangelicals still continue on this path through out this world and it has taken on a rabid and rapid pace in India. (Recent event in Malaysia where evangelicals hijacked the word “Allah” for the Christian god while emphatically stating the exclusivity of the Christian god which is supposedly superior to all other “false gods” )
I am afraid this is not going to lead to some happy place. This is going to rile up a lot of people and its eventually going to lead to religious riots. But I believe the evangelicals have already taken into account the potential riots and its cannon fodder casualties into their calculus.. The Gora evangelicals could care less if two brown people kill one another..for these hateful blokes, it’s a net profit for Christianity. Every time an innocent brown Christian dies in a riot, it’s a martyr for these “gora” Christians to use that to raise more money for funding more religious wars in Africa, India and other third world countries.
Bottom line is they still see these events as a net gain for the spread of Christianity. We need a constitutional amendment to prevent evangelicals to do their deadly deeds

Dr. B.R.Ambedkar’s patriotism and his message of patriotism to be the down trodden in India is very clear Conversion to non-Indic religions is undesirable and will be detrimental to the integrity of this nation and this country. The truth of this is borneout by facts – those areas where the majority Indian population has converted to the non- Indic religion, Islam had seceded from India( Pakistan and Bangladesh). In the north-east of India, most people were converted by missionaries to Christianity and therefore, they are also engaged in secessionist movements and insurgencies.
Christian Missionaries approached him to convert himself and his dalits to Christianity. They promised huge financial and other inducements . The Muslims also pleaded with him for conversion to Islam. In fact, the Nizam of Hyderabad offered him Rs. 75 mln if he and his flock converted to Islam.Dr. B.R.Ambedkar spurned the offers of Christins and Muslims . He said: if one converts to Christianity he ceases to be an Indian. The brotherhood in Islam is confined to the Believers; that is, only to Muslims. It cannot promote universal brother-hood. I will not convert to either of these religions . I will convert to one of the religions that are born here, in this country India. Of all the various Indic religions, Sanatan Dharma, Arya Samaj, Vaishnavism. Savaism, Jainism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Veerasevism, etc. Buddhism appeals to me most . It is all humanity embracing . It has no castes. I will therefore convert to Buddhism and advise all my Dalit brothers to convert to Buddhism and avoid conversion non-Indic religion.
This is not unique to India. This is also happening in other far east countries against Buddhists and other minority faiths of this world.

God of Christianity exposed as evil
Biblical Evidence Proving That God is Evil (Part 1)
“The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
Pope Gregory the Great instructed Abbot Mellitus that:
“I have come to the conclusion that the temples of the idols in England should not on any account be destroyed. Augustine must smash the idols, but the temples themselves should be sprinkled with holy water, and altars set up in them in which relics are to be enclosed. For we ought to take advantage of well-built temples by purifying them from devil-worship and dedicating them to the service of the true God.”
Today I discovered that at least one and most likely two very nice young couples are in reality, the worst kind of Jew scammers.
A few weeks ago, during the Kiddush after Shabbos services, I met two couples that are so young, I was surprised they were married. They were dressed as Orthodox Jews right down to the tzitzit on the men (although the women’s heads were uncovered) but there was something, “off” about them. During our conversation I discovered that they were Christians that were looking to connect with and eventually convert to Judaism. I asked them if along their path they had ever been involved with any messianic “Jewish” organizations such as, Hope of Israel. They said no but they had been members of Bella Torah. I must have looked askance because they quickly disavowed the group. They said that they discovered it was phony Judaism and that was why they were here.
The following Tuesday I was at the JLI (Jewish Learning Institute) at Chabad and one of the couples was there as well. We spoke again and they were such a nice young couple that I let my guard down.
During Kiddush a week ago, my husband overheard the men making irreverent comments about what one of the Rabbis was saying. He later told me that he got a bad vibe from them, even thinking that they might be Jew Scammers.
It was the last JLI class last night and the placards with our full names on them were clearly visible. I copied down the names of the one couple that was there. The next morning I started my investigation. Sadly, I quickly found out that they were still active members of Bella Torah. I have written about Bella Torah and their connection to First Fruits of Zion (FFOZ). FFOZ is a Torah centric, educational clearing house for groups of messianic “Jews”. They teach them to do everything they can to be more like the Jews. It is a slightly different form of Messianic “Judaism” as they tell the Jews they do not want to convert them, just study Torah together. This Torah however is not our Torah. They then take their time bringing in the Jesus centered conversations.
Once I had gathered all my evidence, I called Chabad and spoke to one of the Rabbis. He asked me to send the information to him which I did. It was a very sad moment for me and for the Rabbi as well. He told me that Joseph Squiccharini had assured him that they had no intentions of trying to convert any Jews.
The first thing Joseph told me when I was introduced to him was that he was Jewish. When I commented that his name was very Italian sounding and asked if he might be Sephardic, he quickly backpedaled and said that his whole family was studying to become Jewish. When I met his wife moments later and asked how she was doing in conversion classes, she looked at me as if I had two heads. She emphatically stated that she, Joseph and her children were all Christian and had no intention of ever becoming Jewish. Joseph heard me talking to her and after giving his wife one of those “looks” said that they hadn’t started conversion classes yet but were hoping to in the near future. Rule one; like Doctor Who, Joseph lies. In fact, they all lie, all these Christians who devote their lives to make themselves seem Jewish to lure Jews into becoming Christian.
As I write this post I can feel my sadness turning to anger. How could I have allowed myself to be duped by these people? Every other time I have met one of these Jew Scammers the hairs on the back of my neck have literally stood up. Not this time. I was fooled by the obvious warmth of these four young people and ignored my own early suspicions. That will never happen again.
Here is my biggest fear; if I can be fooled, even for a short time, how many others will be as well. The evangelical Christians are spending millions, possibly billions of dollars to do one thing; get Jews to accept Jesus as their savior.They are fanatics and they will not be stopped. The only answer is to keep educating Jews, not only about the multitudes of Jew Scammers out there but about their own religion. Judaism is full of beauty and spirituality. It is there for you to learn. Judaism is our beautiful heritage and why any Jew would look for that light elsewhere is a question for which I have no answer.

A cautionary note. I would say, Majority of the Christians of this world are wonderful, generous and kind. In today’s world you do not see these kinds of things from the vast majority of Christians, either in the west nor in India. But the small activist minority of Christians with the financial backing of some powerful evangelical organizations of the world are involved in this unkind behavior with the fervor and zeal of the new convert.
