Dan Sered, head of the "Jews for Jesus" organization in Israel, replied that his group is just trying to share its faith, and inform Israelis that Jesus is the Messiah. The radio ad is part of a larger missionary campaign that includes full-page ads in the weekend editions of Ma'ariv and Yisrael HaYom, two Hebrew dailies. Christian activists have also been seen dispersing propaganda in Nahariya, Kiryat Shmona, and Haifa. The municipalities of Tiberias and Karmiel recently removed large "Jews for Jesus" ads placed at prominent intersections.
