British Methodists Throw Israel Under the Bus
CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting) ^ | July 4, 2010 | papabrody

Posted on 07/04/2010 10:42:52 AM PDT by papabrody

The Methodist Church of Great Britain is currently holding its annual conference in Portsmouth, England. At the conference, which began on June 24, 2010, delegates will vote on a report about the Arab-Israeli conflict titled “Justice for Palestine and Israel.”

The 50-plus page report calls on Methodists in Great Britain to embrace the Kairos Document issued by Palestinian Christian leaders late last year and to participate in a boycott of Israeli goods produced in the West Bank. (June 30, 2010 note: This boycott has been affirmed. See update below.) The arguments used to justify these actions are similar to those offered in statements and resolutions about the Arab-Israeli conflict offered by mainline churches in the U.S. during the past decade.

The document subjects Israeli policy and Jewish self-understanding to intense scrutiny but offers nary a word of criticism of the anti-Semitic ideologies used to justify violence against Israel and to deny its right to exist. The report also puts forth a narrative in which Israel can bring a unilateral end to the conflict through concessions and withdrawals without acknowledging that such actions have not worked in the past.

Israel is the only place in the middle east where Christians, Jews, and Muslims are safe from being murdered by Islamists.

Its the only place in the middle east where Christians, Jews, and Muslims are free.

The only peace in the middle east is the peace that exists within Israel’s well guarded borders.

Nice going Methodists. Going from fighting slavery to getting into bed with anti-semites.

How sad. First the BBC wants to put the Pope on trial and now the Jews are subjected to British anti-semitism. The Brits have a long history of violating the civil rights of those who are not WASPS. How long will this be tolerated? Have they no shame?

Hadassah Medical Ctr in Israel takes care of all, regardless of race, religion or ethnic origin.....

I wonder if there is hospital in a Muslim nation that would extend the same courtesy to a Jew.....

Wow these people are so far away from biblical truth and teachings....

Jesus died on the cross for all of us. It is a good thing he did not pick and choose who he wanted to save.......

What a surprise: A dead church in a Muslim-overrun country sides with the fanciful "Palestinians".

Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.

If John Wesley were alive today, we’d be seeing another episode of Jesus whipping the money changers at the Temple.

The Methodist Church has fallen so far from what it was originally.

They deserve the slavery they are going to get from islam.
I can’t feel sorry for Europe any longer.

If Americans do not wake up and repent we are going to find ourselves in a similar situation.

Maybe the Mehodidts “christians” should join the other fake Christians... like the IslamoChristian (Helen Thomas or many of the) Arab-Palestinians, as appose to real Arab Christians like the ‘Son of Hamas’ who saw the light... or ex-Hamas terrorist turned Christian: Mr. Shoabet (Shoabet.com), or the great Dr. Phares, or the wonderful wnd.com’s J. Farah, and the spectecular Brigitte Gabrielle.
