In July 2013, Eliyahu ran for the position of Sephardi Chief Rabbi of Israel. Israeli Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein requested that Eliyahu abandon his candidacy, noting that he had made a number of offensive statements against Arabs. Member of Knesset Issawi Frej submitted an emergency petition to the High Court asking that Eliyahu be disqualified, since "election of a racist like Eliyahu to the position would be the start of the destruction of values in the State of Israel". The High Court rejected the petition based on technicalities. In December 2013, Eliyahu petitioned the High Court against the Attorney General for using confidential information that was gathered as part of the failed criminal investigation that Weinstein sent to the election committee in his attempt to prevent Eliyahu from running.
"We mentioned to him in the letter that when [the Prophet] Nehemiah came to [Persian King] Cyrus, to establish Jerusalem, to strengthen and fortify its position, all kinds of people of little faith stood among the gentiles and - to our shame - from the elite of our own people, and sought to stop this. But he (Cyrus) was determined to do God's will and the designs of the other people collapsed, and eventually they too understood that God's will would be done.

That’s just laughable..
Maybe in the Christian community , but Jews and Christians do not share the same definition of messiah..
There is a very specific checklist that must be met for someone to be a messiah and more than a few have met it, but it requires the Jews to be in bondage and be freed FOR SURE..
The Jews are not in vintage to be freed..
Plus don’t like 80% of Jews vote democrat?!?!
The contrast between the Christian mental image of the Jews, their beliefs and traditions is VERY STARK..
All they are doing is recognizing how God can use anyone, believer or non-believer alike, to carry out the will of God
