No Fake

A liberal Evangelical Christian leader close to J Street is pushing a borderline anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that modern Israelis are not descended from Biblical Jews. In a speech before a mostly Jewish crowd at last year’s J Street conference, Serge Duss, Director of the New Century Evangelicals Project, decried what he claimed is the erroneous “belief that the modern state of Israel and modern Israelis are the extension of the Children of Israel of the Old Testament,” according to a copy of his remarks obtained by Commentary’s Omri Ceren.
