Will Israel ever accept Messianic Jews?
Indeed, Messianic Jews are largely shunned by mainstream Jewish communities around the world, and are commonly seen as proselytizers.
In recent times, tension between Israel’s rabbinate and the liberal streams of Judaism both at home and abroad have been in the spotlight due to disputes over religious pluralism. But another group, Messianic Jews, is continuously ostracized both by mainstream world Jewry and by Israel. Every now and again a story reaches the media about a self-identified Jew whose application for immigration to Israel, or aliya, has been denied on the basis that he or she is a Messianic Jew.

I didn't even read this as obviously no one has surveyed the 'majority of the Israelis'.

There are Muslim Israelis, atheist Israeli's ... just because you are from Israel it doesn't mean you are automatically a "jew".
Why does this thread feel like its thinly-veiled anti-jewish or something?

*Read the comments to the article I linked to. They speak like rabid dogs about the rest of us.
Jesus said to them, .... "For what goes into your mouth will not defile you, but that which issues from your mouth - it is that which will defile you." -- The Gospel of Thomas #14
Messianic Jews wishing to make Aliya (return to Israel to live) are not allowed. They get blacklisted and are never allowed back in the country. The STATE does that to them.
There are descendants of Jews who were in the Death Camps who have been turned down citizenship and made to leave JUST FOR BELIEVING N JESUS.
This new Israel will end in tears. Of this I am 101% certain.
They really should listen to Jesus.
