In making our new series, we scored a stirring interview with Jonathan Feldstein of “Heart to Heart.” An Orthodox Jewish family man, Jonathan helps Christians donate blood to the ambulance and EMT service, Magen David Adom (lit., Red Shield of David), Israel’s version of our Red Cross.
What a picture! The People of the Book cooperating to bless Israel save the lives of those in need. Jonathan reminded us that the blood goes to victims of terror, accidents … AND TERRORISTS when the triage calls for it. Jewish morality compels the ambulance personnel to save the lives of “whomsoever,” which has led to some ironic events: As rockets rained on Israel, the family members of terror leaders were getting medical treatment from Israeli doctors!
We need to TELL THE TRUE STORY of events here. Jonathan has an awesome photo of Israelis lining up to donate blood for the U.S. on September 12, 2001. He counts it as a fulfillment of Genesis 12:3—that through the seed of Abraham all the families of the earth will be blessed. It is a partial fulfillment, along with many other benefits that have come from the Jews: the Torah, the Prophets, the Writings, the Patriarchs, the Law, countless medical and scientific breakthroughs … and Messiah!
ZLM has supported ambulances through our benevolence funds … another way that we work together!
