Yair Davidy - Christian Missionaries trying to make phony Aliyah to Israel

Every Sunday night, Rabbi Mordechai Machlis is giving a class at the "Israel Center" (OU) in Jerusalem. And almost every time, Yair Davidy is participating in the class. Davidy is a guy whose English I can hardly understand, as he speaks with a very heavy South African or Australian accent. A rather sloppy looking guy who behaves in an arrogant manner. Rabbi Machlis always praises him as someone who is famous and has written various books on the lost Jewish tribes.

Once I had a look into one of these "famous" books at the Machlis home and, as I expected, Davidy's book didn't have any kind of recommendation, as Jewish religious books usually have. In other words, Davidy (who I have never ever seen at the famous Jewish National Library in Jerusalem) is making up his own thoughts on the tribes. Without any research and discussions with real professional Rabbis or Scientists.

Once Rabbi Machlis was again praising him during his class when a young Christian woman from South America claimed that she has "Jewish" roots. The "root issue" has become a popular method of missionaries sneaking into Israel and trying to claim their Jewishness (which has never existed). They just show up and claim to be from tribe so - and - so. Just like the "Bnei Menashe" from India, some self - appointed Jews from Peru or Kenyia.

I knew that the young woman was lying and as soon as Yair Davidy announced his false weirdo theory that she must be Jewish then, I almost jumped up the roof. You are a Christian and mention "your chosen tribe" to Davidy, the guy will make you Jewish right away. Probably because of all the Christian donations he may get out of this.

Now, plenty of Christians have been claiming to belong to a tribe. They are trying to make Aliyah in order to prostelyze Jews afterwards. Their latest plan is the establishment of a Christian settlement in the Shomron (Samaria). Unfortunately, many Jewish settlers are ready to help the Christians, as lots of money is involved. Lately, the national religious settler movement has become addicted to Christian missionary money.

1,000 Missionaries Seek Phony Conversion Certificates to Enter Israel Under Law of Return

A plan to bring 1,000 missionaries to Israel, under the guise of newly converted Jews seeking to settle the Shomron, is picking up steam, Yad L'Achim has learned.

The plan, which calls for the missionaries to undergo "conversion" to Judaism in the United States and then immigrate under the Law of Return, was hatched by Baruch Abramovich, a veteran missionary from Portland.
Though the plan was originally kept under wraps, Abramovich, host of a messianic Russian-Christian radio show, has recently begun speaking about it publicly. “We aspire to create a community in Samaria, or in any area that would like to absorb people who truly love Israel and the Jewish religion,” he said.

Yad L'Achim is sounding the alarm on the plan, in light of the fact that every year hundreds of missionaries use a similar ruse to infiltrate Israel, and then turn around and try to convert Jews out of their religion.
"They obtain conversion certificates abroad that are based on blatant lies," says Yad L'Achim chairman Harav Shalom Dov Lifschitz. "They're 'permitted' to lie, according to their beliefs, in order to obtain a document that will help them advance their nefarious goals.

"The rabbis and Jewish courts in the United States have to be made aware of this plan in order to prevent the issuing of phony conversion documents. They must thoroughly check the origins and beliefs of those coming before them to convert. We have experience with gabbaim in shuls who are missionaries." 
The plan to bring 1,000 missionaries to settle the Shomron got a boost last week, when its advocates met with MK Lia Shemtov (Yisrael Beiteinu), head of the Knesset's Immigrant, Absorption and Diaspora Committee, who promised her help in advancing the initiative.

"Bringing in hundreds of educated, well-established people to Israel will help the development of the Shomron as an inseparable part of the state of Israel," Shemtov said. "We're talking about a group that wants to undergo Orthodox conversion, to contribute to the economy and to even serve in the Israel Defense Forces."
In response, Yad L'Achim's chairman wrote an urgent letter to Mrs. Shemtov, warning of the dangers of the plan. "Every year, hundreds of missionaries infiltrate Israel, of which nearly 100 are caught for having lied to the authorities about being Jewish," he wrote. Rav Lifschitz enclosed hard evidence showing that Abramovich is a senior, and very active, missionary.

"The missionaries seek to use their Orthodox conversion certificates to reach as many Jews as possible," Rav Lifschitz wrote. "According to our information, there is a suspicion that Abramovich's group is likewise arriving with the goal of getting innocent Jews to convert to Christianity."
Rav Lifschitz concluded his letter with a moving appeal. "In light of this despicable, dangerous phenomenon, we ask you: Please, don't cooperate with this group; do everything in your power to prevent their coming to Israel, for the sake of the Jewish people in Eretz Yisrael. It is incumbent upon all of us, those who keep the Torah and mitzvos and those who don't, to do everything we can to block the missionaries and their representatives in their efforts to destroy our people, and to eradicate our faith in one G-d."

A parliamentary aide to Mrs. Shemtov said in response that Abramovich had not informed her that he was head of a missionary group in Portland when he asked for assistance, and that she would be investigating the matter.
