We Do Not Appreciate 'Enticement'

To my friends in the Christian Zionist sphere, this is not what we need, nor is it appreciated:

"The main thing we want to do is help sponsor what we call Messianic Jews, or Jews that have received Jesus Christ as their Messiah," said TBN co-founder Paul Crouch, according to the Los Angeles Times. "We want to do some Hebrew language programs to reach out to Jews and entice them to read the word of God and become what we call a completed Jew."


On second thought, I think these people should be warned that they could be liable to be charged, or at least investigated, with a criminal offense.

From Israel's Penal Code:

Giving benefits to induce change of religion

174A.    If a person  gives or  promises another person money, valuable consideration or another material benefit in order  to entice him to change his religion or to cause him to entice another to change his religion, then he is liable to five years imprisonment or a fine of NS150,000.

So, what constitutes an act of 'enticement'?
