Overlooked in the discussion about Messianic Jews (“Fusion Of Faiths,” June 21) is the most politically well-connected Messianic Jew of them all: Ron Cantor. He is the beloved cousin of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va). Born in America, Ron Cantor, according to his website, “has been privileged to passionately share on the Jewish Roots of Christianity and God’s broken heart for His ancient people Israel in the U.S., Brazil, Ukraine, Switzerland, France, Russia, Hungary, Israel, Germany, Argentina and, most recently, Uganda and Nigeria.” Cantor now lives in Tel Aviv, where he operates Messiah’s Mandate (messiahsmandate.org). That’s right, this apostate, who has a family connection to the highest levers of power in Washington, is actively working to turn the Jewish state into a Christian one. No doubt Barry Rubin (“Have The Conversation, July 5) is kvelling.
Talk about chutzpah!
