World Council of Churches: Solidarity with Unrepentant Murderers

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.

Visit This Ongoing War. /  Frimet and Arnold Roth

About the Author: 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 thisoingoingwar@gmail.com .

    The W C of C is not a church, it’s not a council and it doesn’t represent the world. It represents a small number of liberal humanists who have no understanding, compassion or faith.

  11. Ann Carey says:

    Their no such people as the Palestinians but Arab Jews.

    Lorraine Taylor I hope that you are wrong, but unfortunately you are in all probability correct.

  15. Jennifer Moe says:

    World Council of churches is nothing more than a group of reprobate apostate religious people. They do not speak for Chritians!

  22. like the church weren’t murderers to begin with… like with like

  23. Paul Weiss says:

    these people are filled with hypocrisy, and their jealous anti semitism is glaringly blatant. to call them a church of God is a blaspheme.

  24. Jim I am not wrong! I wish I was! I really do. I can’t stand this happening again.

  29. Karin Moore says:

    WCC is bogus operation!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  30. Yori Mendel says:

    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.

  31. 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

  32. World Council of Churches are not my leaders.They evidently do not actually read the Bible or the Torah.

  33. Sue Johnson says:

    The” poor, pitiful Palestinians” who never did anything wrong except hate and kill Jews.How can people who are supposed to be “of God” be so stupid?

  34. 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.

  35. Karen Bryant says:

    World council of churches is not inline with God.

  36. Alan Kardon says:

    Why don't they take care of the terrorists and murderers in their own countries first? Bunch of anti-semites.

  37. 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
