Daily Beast Torching of Mosque Story Gets It Wrong

A Clarification from Jews for Jesus Leader David Brickner

September 15, 2016

The Daily Beast ran a sensational headline today entitled: “Jew for Jesus Arrested for Torching Omar Mateen’s Mosque.” They allege that Joseph Schreiber is in some way associated with Jews for Jesus. This is not true. We do not know Mr. Schreiber, nor is he on our mailing list.

It’s important to note that Jews for Jesus is not a membership organization—one cannot join Jews for Jesus. We are a one-issue ministry dedicated to sharing the message that Jesus is the promised Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world.

It is disheartening that our very positive and life-giving message is being entwined with the horrendous act of torching a mosque. Jesus came as the Prince of Peace and that is the message we bring.
