I read this article and it is shocking to understand that in addition to those who want to eliminate the Jews physically there are so many evangelicals who’s aim in life is to convert them.

I honestly mean no pun by this, and I know how awkward this might sound, but it's just that Your comment reminded me almost instictively of Christ's words in Matthew 10:28: And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
