When Israelis read the Christian Bible or...
Jewish Tanakh do they read it in modern or biblical Hebrew?
That's crazy 2% of Americans are Jewish and most are Christian. So we're like opposites. Wow, so there are very few Christian Israelis. That's even less than I thought. How are Christians viewed over there? Is there any dislike or are people fine with you being Christian?
DocHatteras you have to understand that you are talking about a small group of religious fanatics and fundamentalists in tiny areas inside Jerusalem who does not, in any way, represent entire Israel..
I am 100% positive that you can practice any religion you want in Tel-aviv, Haifa, Beer Sheva, other parts of Jerusalem and any other place in Israel for that matter. Hell, I'm pretty sure that if I go into these orthodox neighborhoods on Saturday with a phone, or any other day with "immodest clothing" I will be spitted on too..
Let alone the fact that in northern Israel there are so many churches, monasteries and entire christian villages, and I have never heard any complaints from them. All I am saying is that you can't blame an entire country based on the actions of a small group of people, racism and ignorance exists everywhere.
I read more about it, 74% of the people said they use the modern Hebrew version. http://www.hachotam.org/he-il/adults/articles/principles-of-faith/translation-of-the-new-testament-to-hebrew/
