    John Painstil shows that around the world there are non-Jewish people who really love Israel and the Israeli People. As a Christian Frenchman (of Peruvian and Italian origin) I do love Israel. The famous Ivoirian (of Ivory Coast) singer Alpha Blondy released an album called "Jerusalem" in 1986. "Jérusalem" promoted Blondy's message of religious unity. The songs on Blondy's album examined the precepts of Islam, Judaism and Christianity, drawing inspiration from the Torah and the Koran and the Bible. The Ivorian star also began preaching his new philosophy of religious unity on stage - and when Blondy performed in Morocco in July 1986 he chose to sing the Hebrew lyrics of the song "Jérusalem" to an audience of Muslims. Some critics considered this to be as an open act of provocation, but Blondy saw himself as a man on a personal mission to restore religious harmony in the world. In Israel you must be aware that there are a lot of Christian Africans who really love Israel.
