What can we do about christianity being an attack on Judaism?
Aargh! In the first place, I think this whole bad idea of the replacement theology (in short: after the Jewish people - but not all of them, as is often forgotten - rejected Jesus being the Messiah, God's promises to them no longer count and have been transferred to "the church", i.e. the christians, which now forms the "new Israel"; most every mention in the OT of Jerusalem and Israel is spiritualised and a host of other strange teachings) has to be declared false officially by protestant churches and the Vatican.
If you study the history of the early church, one of the first theologians who was really hostile to the Jews was Marcion (2nd century theologian). Many years ago I followed a seminar on the roots of anti-semitism - I should find my notes (I first heard of Marcion there).
However, hey, not to defend the protestants or the christians, just to keep in mind, all through protestant church history there have always been those (few) who took the prophecies literally and believed that Jews would return to Israel. Just the other day I read about some: Dutch theologians and pastors who lived in the 17th and 18th century.
