Christians are my brothers and sisters. I may not agree with everything that either they or the Rabbis say, but I understand that ultimately, if even unknowingly, they seek HaShem. That is my opinion. In the same manner, I would beg my Christian brothers and sisters to abandon 1,900 years of anti-Semitic theology and look to the Jew as their brother, and in fact their older brother. LOL.

Not all of Christianity has been antisemitic. Admittedly most, especially the mainline denominations, have. But the Christian scriptures do not permit it. Never did.
My belief re Jews is that they are God's to deal with. They are specifically God's chosen and Christianity is not going to change that. No.. I do not believe in replacement theology.
Our disagreement has been, is, and always will be the issue of Messiah. When he comes, we'll find out who's right.. eh?
In any case, yes the Jew's are indeed my brethren. And I mean Jews being Jews, not Jews who convert to Christianity. Jew's have no better friends on earth than my brand of Christian. That's a fact. And it doesn't revolve around some wild-eyed end-time/Israel theology.
And I will take your answer to be "shituf".
