“The State of Israel must safeguard its Jewish existence which means preventing any non-Jewish authority that plans to wipe out the Jewish Nation spiritually from operating in the Jewish State.”

This is similar logic to why Jewish newspapers don’t run ads from Jews for Jesus or, I can only imagine, why Christianity Today wouldn’t publish a Muslim missionary’s call to Islam. What’s wrong with it?
