The evangelical missionary movement "Jews for Jesus" have spent over 30 years actively trying to convert Jews to Christianity by telling them that a belief that salvation can only come through Jesus as the messiah is consistent with Judaism. In fact, this is far from true. While Christianity, like Islam, is an off-shoot of Judasim a kosher Christian is still a Christian even when he calls himself a "messianic Jew". The sheer willfullness of this relgious movement continues today to such a degree that comedian Jackie Mason has had to sue the organization for implying he not only condones the movement, but that he may well be a "Jew for Jesus" in a pamphlet they've been using to proseletyze in NYC this Summer. Par for the course, a spokeperson for the Christian group has issued a statement indicating that anyone who has a problem with them lying about their organization to gain converts is out of line
