Whenever I ask fellow Jews to explain their support of leaders such as Yoffie and Foxman, the most frequent response I get is that these men defend us against those who would pressure Jews to convert to Christianity. Yet no one I know can point to a personal experience of having been pressured to accept Jesus. Is it possible that Jews think that “Christianizing” is rampant only because the Yoffies and the Foxmans tell us so?In response, I'll note the following news alert from Shmais.com (link):
URGENT WARNING! MISSIONARIES TARGET CROWN HEIGHTS!I've been informed that it was not just Crown Heights that was targetted but also Boro Park and New Square. This is supposedly in advance of what one expert calls a "massive missionary outreach to Greater NYC like we have never seen".

SNS has learned that over Shabbos many homes in Crown Heights got a DVD in the mail entitled "DAYS OF MOSHIACH".
PLEASE BEWARE THIS DVD IS THE PRODUCT OF MISSIONARIES AND SHOULD BE DESTROYED IMMEDIATELY!
PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Gavriel Aryeh Sanders has been discussing this on his radio show. I haven't listened to it but last week's show is available on his website (link).
