We’re flabbergasted at the news that the World Council of Churches went public today with a statement of solidarity with what it calls “some 5000 Palestinian men, women and children, languishing in Israeli jails“.

The WCC’s chief executive, Olav Fykse Tveit, a Norwegian Lutheran, is quoted in its press release saying that the members for whom he speaks

“are called to pray for, visit, and tend to the needs of all prisoners, no matter the reason for their detention. For Israel and Palestine, prisoners have taken on even greater significance than in the past. We were disappointed when the government of Israel cancelled the scheduled release of prisoners who have been in Israeli jails even before the Oslo Agreement of 1993…


The announcement goes on to invite “the churches in the Holy Land to remember Palestinian prisoners through prayers and acts of solidarity that restore to them their freedom with justice and dignity”.

WCC is a roof body that purports to speak for the world’s major protestant churches. Here‘s where they list their members. In Australia, they include the Anglican, Churches of Christ and Uniting Church in Australia. In the UK, the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Church in Wales, the Church of England, the Church of Scotland, the Methodist Church, Presbyterian Church of Wales and others. In the United States, they include the Quakers, the United Church of Christ, United Methodist Church, the Episcopal Church, the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the Presbyterian Church (USA) and many others. That’s a lot of worshipers. Do they know how their religious faith is being exploited by a small coterie of self-perpetuating, Geneva-based bureaucrats?

The word that most offends us here is “languishing”. Dr Tveit doesn’t apply it to certain specific prisoners, but to all of them, including (just as an example) to Abdullah Barghouti [“10-Apr-07: Regarding Abdullah Barghouti“], convicted of murdering 66 Jews and seeks (he says openly) to kill more of us. He personally assembled the bomb that killed our 15 year-old daughter Malki. If he’s languishing, and other unrepentant murderers are too, this strikes us as being an exceedingly gentle condition for them to be in, given the state in which their victims are, and the ongoing agony of those who loved the victims.

And if, Heaven forbid, someone ever restores to Barghouti his “freedom with justice and dignity“, will that someone take responsibility for the consequent acts of carnage?

Semantics aside, one has to wonder at an international association of Christians that looks at the devastation overtaking the Christian communities of the Middle East and concludes that the one problem deserving of the bulk of their attention and resources is the one involving the Jews.

Frimet and Arnold Roth began writing and speaking publicly soon after the murder of their fifteen year-old daughter Malki Z"L in the Jerusalem Sbarro massacre, August 9, 2001 (Chaf Av, 5761). They have both been, and are, frequently interviewed for radio, television and the print media, including CNN, BBC, New York Times, Washington Post, Al-Jazeera, and others. Their blog This Ongoing War deals with the under-appreciated price of living in a society afflicted by terrorism which, they contend, means the entire world. Frimet is a native of Queens, NY while her husband was born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. They brought their family to settle in Jerusalem in 1988. They co-founded the Malki Foundation in 2001 and are deeply involved in its work as volunteers. They can be reached at .


  1. Those who protect murderers, against our lovely Country, are like those who curse Jews. Anyone who curses a Jew, is cursed. Th e WCOC has always had an extremists Liberal bent. So has the Catholic Churches, both Romish and Eastern. In past History, they both were guilty for much Jewish suffering. They cursed us as Witches. Even the Protestant ones did. They All are of that same Mythology. They most of them don’t know, or truly understand Scripture, as it was not Greek. It was Hebrew. The innocent one’s are still listening to the Spewers of Antisemitism, which their Religion has constantly taught. Both sides elected Hitler. Therefore, there really is no excuse for their ignorance. They both believed the lying Myth of Judas Iscariot, which was invented to cause Antisemitism, from the name transposed from Judah. Even t hat Myth shows it’s flaws, as Judas was there, in their Book of Acts, voting for his own deaths replacement. A dead man cannot vote. It’s constant presentations in Medieval Passion Play and Punch and Judy Shows sewed the Hate completely across Europe, and eventually around the World. Judy was another Judas. Their character roles exchanged constantly, to seed the Hate In children. The Churches were their primary supporters. Then, eventually Television happened. I remember those horrid puppets on Television when I was at a neighbor’s house, when I was three. The WCOC is primarily responsible, for sewing Hate Worldwide. Luther was Antisemitic as well. So, the Churches have no excuse. They ALL are the Spreaders of Hatred against us Jews. They are responsible. They league with the Palestinians, because their father is Azazel. It’s common to them All, against us. So, those who curse us, are indeed cursed, by their own doing. G-D makes Right. He Will Sooner than they realize. These things we see today, are just the Announcement of Him Coming, and fulfilling His Promises. He uses men to do His Work. His Moschiach is at the Door.

  2. Can we expect anything better from those Jew haters, when they have Tutu as one of their leaders?

    Why dont they tell their governments to release every murderer?
    Oh I forgot. It was ONLY Jews they murdered
    One thing is for sure.
    They have as much chance of ever being with the LORD G-D, as they have of falling pregnant without sex..
    These evil church leaders will share eternity with the likes of Hitler.
    Maybe they would like that. Afterall, he slaughtered 6 million Jews

  3. Where was the original country of Palestine? Oh that right,it NEVER EXISTED. I am very afraid. It is happening again. Jews and Christians are being slaughtered by MUSLIMS and liberals. In the U.S. ,we have a president who by all accounts is not what he seems to be. Lord Jesus, come now.

  4. The World Council of Churches is a racist anti-Jewish and racist anti Black African group. Not only do they engage in bigotry and racism against the Jews, they have also aided and abetted the murders and ethnic cleansing of black Africans in Sudan by the Islamist government

  5. The World Council of Churches is a racist anti-Jewish and racist anti Black African group. Not only do they engage in bigotry and racism against the Jews, they have also aided and abetted the murders and ethnic cleansing of black Africans in Sudan by the Islamist government

  6. Sure, the Palestinians are in prison because they are all “good people” who never harmed a souls. If you believe that WC of C you also believe in the Tooth Fairy and that the moon is made of green cheese,WTF are those rectums trying to kid? The prisons are full of terrorists that blew up and maimed innocent men, women and children. The so called council is an abomination and a hateful group of imbeciles.

  7. All civilized people need to mobilize against the Jew haters, immediately! The savages of Islam, Russia, and other subterranean life matter are coming to destroy us! Never Forget, Never Again! Every Christian should be standing shoulder to shoulder in this fight! We are at war!

  8. Yes, have these churches no concern for the Egyptian Christians who are being tyrannised, and many Copts lived in Egypt long before Islam.
    what about Nigeriisn Christisns being attacked by Muslims and having their girls stolen from schools?
    Lots of other examples,
    and yes, why should Israel release multi murderers? The churches need to do a bit of thinking and examining the fact

  9. What is so important here is that it is the view of the leaders of these Churches who are more and more losing touch with their congregants and with reality. They have become politicians and can now be compared to the Pharisee's of old. In othr words, religeous but spiritually empty. It is so evident in my country as well as in Africa that these traditional Churches are dying because they are unable to connect with the common people and show God's love in action as it matches teaching. The Evangelicals however are growing and this is where the support for Israel is booming. The traditional Churches are attempting to fit into the world view and are attracting those who like the watered down and compromised word of God so that it suits there lifestyle. A generalisation of course as there are many true believers who are still members of these Churches.

  10. The WWC is anti Israel and cursing Israel they themselves will become cursed of G-D. Those within these churches should march with their feet and leave that which is polluted and find true fellowship with those who truly base all they believe and do on The Word of G -D. Shalom Israel we love you

  11. I am surprised that the majority of those responding haven't received the real message behind the World Council of Churches. For close to 2000 years, the Christian Community has tried in vain to either convert the Jews, or kill the Jews. Through love and hate, pogroms and Holocausts they have tried. The Jewish People however refused these advances and stayed true to their God, never wavering. This attitude truly is upsetting to the vast numbers of Christians who have tried to create the illusion of love for the Jewish People. Nothing has changed for the Jewish People today within the Evangelical and Pentacostal community. They express love for the Jews, while hoping they will convert. They will be disappointed as well.

  12. Seriously now…in addition to the other faults of the WCC, and they are many, they simply do not want to be put to death for insulting Islam…so they only insult those whom they know will not put them to death. On another front islamists have no sense of humor that we know of, and neither does the WCC leadership…you need to be in touch with Hashem for that…instead the are brittle and dry bones. When the trumpet blows their bones will shatter to dust.

    You are 100% correct.

    I know many wonderful Christians, white, Coloured and Black, who support Jews and Israel fully.
    They distance themselves from these evil haters
    The unfortunate part, is that those leaders preach hatred of Jews and Israel, so their flock belives them, and so the hatred spreads.

    Yet, the bible tell them to LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THOU LOVES THYSELF>"
    Maybe they just dont read, or beleiev in the Bibile.

  14. LOL they can take all them to their main countries for free maybe the best is to give those murders to the Pope when he visits OUR Holly land. Christians and Muslims are the same . Judaism is the God Religion the others are cults made by men like parasites they needed to used the God s word the Torah to credibility to their cults.

  15. It is fine to pray for murderers, and to visit them in jail. Where they belong, and are to stay. I personally believe in capital punishment for repeat offenders, but that is for another day. Keep in mind that the European churches operate in countries that are again growing to be more and more anti-Semitic. Do you see any connection there?

  16. If the founder of Christianity Jesus, taught all Christians to love their enemies, not hard to imagine, how ,much more did he teach them to love their Jewish brothers ands sisters, whom G.D have chosen and made the EVERLASTING COVENANTS. I am a Christian and I am disgusted and so shamed of this anti Israel group. Anti Israel is the same as anti G.D.

  17. G:D declared that he loves Israel with an EVERLASTING love. Those so called Christian are fakes, because they do not read G.D's word. They do not represent Christianity, and have nothing to do with Christianity, they use the name to do their evil dirty, anti G.D job. G.D will curse them.
