Youth group banished from IDF base for talking about Jesus

Thursday, August 02, 2007 |  by Staff Writer

A group of young believers in Jesus reportedly paid a visit to an Israeli army base last month, only to be forcibly evicted after revealing their faith to the soldiers stationed there.

According to Israel National News, the youth group came waving Israeli flags and playing festive music, which at first won over the soldiers, many of whom gladly joined in the singing and dancing.

But when the music stopped, the youth began to share their faith in Jesus, who they pointed out “was Jewish, not Christian.” Many of the soldiers became furious and forced the group to leave the base at once.

The angered soldiers also contacted the anti-missionary group Yad L'Achim, which claimed such groups of believers, both foreign and Israeli, have begun a concerted effort to target Jewish soldiers.
