Regarding "We need evangelical Christian support", Op-Ed, March 7, and Advertisement, Ha'Aretz, March 11, 2005: The threatening and condemning tone of the "petition to the state of Israel to ban the invitation for World Pride 2005" shows that we Jews - in Israel and abroad - are nothing but pawns in the apocalyptic worldview of some of the Christian fundamentalists. Sure, many Christians' affection for the Jewish people is genuine, and their support should be cherished, but fanatics like those behind the "Will you help Israel" petition make clear that theirs is not a true love: after all, should love not be "without limits and without conditions"?
