    This discussion may not have much to do w/Strenger. Clearly he was deprived of a Jewish education, and no one let him remedy this. Might look for Haim Cohn's _Bible and Human Rights_ for a Jewish perspective. Isaiah 56:7 probably should be read in context of 56:6 and 56:8. Also of course 42:6 and 66:20. And Psalms 105:10-11. If it's in English, perhaps the Rash"i to Gen. 1:1. Isaiah seems to take the Sabbath seriously (56:2-6). Perhaps he was including Adventists and Church of God and Saints of Christ. "House of prayer for all peoples" is consistent with it being a Jewish place. Consider modern tourism. Pagan Romans brought sacrifices to the Second Temple. Separating "settlers" from other Orthodox is inaccurate. Even Neturei Qarta see Israel ultimately as Jewish. But like some Sufi, not to equate, NK prefer to defer certain goals. Ps. 42:6 means Jews should build a model society. May not have gotten there yet, but a humble and real-world endeavor.
