Marcy Tolkoff Levy claims that Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s motive for supporting Israel is based on the desire of Evangelical Christians to convert Jews to Christianity (Letters, Aug. 26).
What she does not understand is that Evangelicals are firm believers in the Bible as the word of God. In that same Bible, God tells Abraham, “I will bless them that bless you.” (See Genesis 12:3.) Understandably, Evangelicals want to be blessed by God.
Keep in mind that if all the Jews were to convert (which Levy claims that Perry wants), the Jews would disappear as a distinct people, and that biblical prophecy could never be fulfilled.
