Are there resolvable conflicts between differing traditionalists?

There is an interesting debate going on at Shri Lawrence Auster’s website about how liberal evangelists threaten white Christian culture and tradition by encouraging mass immigration into the US/West in the name of a universal religion for all men.

I am on the side of such traditionalists who would oppose liberal evangelists.

However as a Hindu traditionalist I naturally am concerned that Christian evangelists per se threaten Hindu culture and tradition in Hindusthan. I speak with reference to and against the same white liberal evangelists who fund and encourage native Christian brethren in proselytising Hindus.

A conflict develops wherein the white Christian traditionalist must abide by the Christian duty to convert but this in opposition to the Hindu traditionalist’s instinct to preserve his own tradition.

Is there a solution?

Shri Daler provides some interesting news about Mizoram –

Checked out the debate on VFR. On the anti conversion laws in India, it is not only Hindus who have been asking for it – Mizoram government, church and other assorted christian bigot groups asked for it too.

Alarmed at the prospect of hordes of Mizos embracing Judaism and deserting the Church for Jerusalem, Christian groups are believed to have lodged their protest with the Union Home Ministry and blocked the migration of Israel’s lost tribe to the promised land.
Hundreds of newly converted tribal Jews in Mizoram feel “devastated” after New Delhi refused them permission to migrate to Israel. The denial, the Jewish community leaders say, follows protests by Christian groups.

Alarmed at the prospect of hordes of Mizos embracing Judaism and deserting the Church for Jerusalem, Christian groups are believed to have lodged their protest with the Union Home Ministry and blocked the migration of Israel’s lost tribe to the promised land.

Hundreds of newly converted tribal Jews in Mizoram feel “devastated” after New Delhi refused them permission to migrate to Israel. The denial, the Jewish community leaders say, follows protests by Christian groups.

“We are shattered with the Indian Government rejecting our applications for migrating to Israel,”  Jeremia Hnamte, administrator of the Mizoram chapter of the Shavei Israel Organisation (SIO), said.

The SIO is a group headquartered in Jerusalem and dedicated to searching for lost tribes of Israel and helps them return to their Promised Land. Rabbinical leaders announced in 2006 that some 6,000 members of the  Bnei Menashe tribe in India’s North-East were descendants of ancient Israelites or one of the Biblical 10 lost tribes. The recognition from Israel came after tribe members sent scores of applications seeking to migrate to Israel, or the “Promised Land”, saying it was their right to do so.

According to Israeli law, every Jew enjoys the “right of return” or the right of abode in the country. “We understand that a group of Christians lodged a formal protest with the Indian External Affairs and Home Ministry saying they should not allow Mizo Jews to migrate to Israel and stop conversions,” Hnamte said.

“We are fighting for our right to migrate and hope to get a positive nod from the Indian Government soon.” “There was tremendous pressure from the Church and the Mizoram Government on New Delhi to force Israel to ban the conversions,” a community elder of the  Bnei Menashe tribe said requesting anonymity.

Palahalli S – I wonder why Mizo Christians are against Jews migrating out?
