I love the Jews

by Louis A. Turk

The one person that loves me more than anyone in this world is a Jew. The one person that I love more than anyone in this world is a Jew. All twelve of my chilren have Jewish names: Esther, Joshua, Zuriel, Naarah, Isaiah, Samuel, Enoch, Kezia, Jael, Caleb, Boaz, Obadiah. My favorite books were written by Jews. My worldview is based on the revelation of God given to Moses---a Jew. The heros I have tried to pattern my life after are almost all Jews.

A Jewish doctor saved the life of one of my sons. My son was dying of spinal meningitis, and very highly skilled Jewish doctor treated him, and God cured him. Many of the medicines that have enabled me and my family (and you and your family) to enjoy better health were developed by Jews. When Hamas terrorists are taken to a hospital, their lives are often able to be saved because of medical advances shared with the world by Jews. I am thankful, and Hamas members should also be thankful (enough to repent of their hatred).

The United States of America where I am blessed to live has been mightily blessed of God because of her friendship toward Israel. In spite of the very sorry quality of the USA's friendship toward Israel, the USA has nevertheless often been about the only friend that Israel has had, and God has blessed the USA because of this. We have given Israel nothing compared to what God has given us in return.

Furthermore, all of my close friends love the Jews. My parents taught me to love the Jews, and I am teaching my children to love the Jews. No, I am not a Jew, but if I had been born to Jewish parents I certainly would not be ashamed, and in fact would feel honored, just as I feel honored having been born into the Turk family.

I read the Jerusalem Post and Arutz Sheva every day. I pray for the Israeli people, and I write letters to US government officials in support of Israel. And I refuse to vote for anti-Israel politicians.

I love my children so much that I tell them the truth, even if it hurts. I love the members of my family tree so much that I tell them the truth even if it hurts. I also love the Jews so much that I tell them the truth even if it hurts. I hope and pray that my children, and my family members, and my Jewish friends will not hate me for telling them the truth.

Lying is hatred. If to keep someone from being angry with me I tell them a lie which results in their harm, is that not wickedness? Truth is better than lies. Truth---even if it hurts---brings life and freedom if accepted.

There is a Jewish proverb that goes like this: "Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful" Prov. 27:6.

I love Jews enough to state that love publicly on this web site so that all the world can know it. Dear Jewish friend, in so doing I risk being also hated by your enemies. I take this risk to prove my love for you. Would you, my dear Jewish friend, please respond to my love by seriously considering the truths I present to you on these pages? These are the very same truths I teach to my children---truths I know to be true by personal experience.
