Of course Christians can support and love the Jews. Jesus came to the Jews first, they are still first in His heart, and therefore in ours. We gentiles are second; he turned to us after He was rejected. But we believe in the Jewish Tanakh as do the Jews the difference is over who is the Messiah and the consequences that follow from that. Most of us know that most of our missionary efforts with Jews will fail, but so exalted is our view of the Jews as God's people we have to try; the Bible is quite clear Jesus Himself will do most of the converting when He returns.
