Canada: Anti-Semitic Church Attack on Israel

This brutality seen in Muslim societies brings us to a critical point outlined by the United Church working group:holding Israel, like any other modern democratic state, accountable for its actions is one way civil society strengthens democracy and justice;” and, further, that Israel should be held to a higher standard than the surrounding non-democratic countries. This is nothing short of a highly racist statement, implying that the surrounding “barbarians” are capable of nothing more than savagery, so why expect anything of them or hold them accountable? In other words, they are the brown people from whom we should expect little more than violence and brutality. “Those Muslims” are quite capable of being civilized and should be called to the same — admittedly flawed but higher — standard as any other Western nation — as many Muslim Reformists are trying to do today in efforts to protect the rights of women and human rights overall.

By contrast, in Israel, which is branded apartheid, Arabs are allowed full voting rights; positions in Knesset; employment rights, and for that matter, the freedom to be homosexual – the last, in their own countries, grounds to be murdered.

While all evidence attests to Christians having been driven out of Bethlehem by Muslims, the Working Group asserts, in yet another misinformed allegation, that it was the “occupation” that has driven out the Christians. The Hamas and the Palestinian Authority in fact violated – and continue to violate — the human rights of Christians through beatings, intimidation, fire-bombings of their institutions, torture, kidnapping, and sexual harassment, thus leading to their exodus from Bethlehem: the very place honored as the birthplace of Christ.

In conclusion, the United Church working group needs to do its homework along with some other Church groups that condemn Israel. Israel is increasingly bullied by the OIC-dominated United Nations, as well as surrounding enemies that have historically sought its destruction. There are still many maps that exclude Israel, including one which was displayed at the U.N. and which was used to mark the commemoration of “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” on November 29, 2005. The working group takes seriously questions about why Israel is currently the only country in the world being challenged by a global boycott, divestment, and sanctions movement (BDS).” In asserting this, the United Church would do well to observe its own faith by remembering that Christ, too, was ganged up against; so it is a moot argument to inquire why Israel is being challenged by a global BDS movement — that is unjust and reprehensible — as this small nation continues to fight for its existence.

  1. Ruth Hirt says:

    How infuriating, an entity which should uphold Biblical truths, expected to instill into the faithfuls' awareness of the reiterated hope the Holy Scriptures vow, is outrightly turning against its ürimary divine objectives. Those people could qualify endorsers of the anti-Christ. ):

  2. The knee jerks, Any criticism of the illegal occupation of Palestinian land is labeled "anti-Semitic." And the naive reader accepts this.

  3. Muriel Coudurier-Curveur says:

    Morton, when an institution accepts uncritically all the arguments of the antisemites against Israel, chances are it is also antisemitic.

A little less than 10 percent of eligible Democratic voters came out on primary day, which translates into Mr. Cuomo having received the support of 6.2 percent of registered Democrats.

The reality, though, is that the Israeli “war crimes” scenario will likely be played out among highly partisan UN agencies, NGOs, and perhaps even the International Criminal Court.

Peace or the lack of it between Israel and the Palestinians matters not one whit when it comes to the long-term agenda of ISIS and other Islamists, nor does it affect any of the long-running inter-Arab conflicts and wars.

Rather than serving as a deterrent against terrorist attacks, Israel’s military strength and capabilities are instead looked at as an unfair advantage in the asymmetrical war in which it finds itself.

Blaming America and appealing to a presumed guilt will not solve the problem of Muslim radicals wishing to infiltrate, dominate, Islamize and kill Western citizens.

The heat being generated from the Keystone controversy may well have had an influence upon Obama’s gaffe in comparing U.S.-Canada relations to Israel-Palestinian relations.

Building U.S.-Canada relations is more urgent than ever, both economically and in foreign affairs. If America intends to keep its advantage as a superpower, it will greatly help to ally with its neighbor, Canada. While Canada has depended upon the U.S. historically as the stronger military might, it has, under a Conservative Government, demonstrated global leadership in economic policy and foreign affairs. Given the rise of economic superpowers such as China and India, and the challenges from our enemies, such as Islamists, a strong foreign policy and a functional economy are key.

Despite the news of Canada’s decision and Baird’s justification for breaking diplomatic ties with Iran, much more action needs to be taken by Western nations. For example putting Hizbollah on the EU’s terror list.

A tight, organized network of Iranian terrorists seems to be using elementary schools, universities and government institutions — not to mention manipulating the multicultural system — to promote its messages of propaganda and hate, apparently with the ultimate goal of conquering the “infidel.”

The drive to have the Church of the Nativity recognized as a global heritage site is nothing short of offensive. Christians have been driven out of their ancestral lands; Palestinians have shown nothing but hostility to both Christians and Jews. Moreover, Christ himself was a Jew.

The United Church of Canada Working Group’s objectives do not even take into account the Jihadist call to war against Israel , and children being taught in Palestinian schools to hate and kill Jews. This hatred has nothing to do with the so-called “occupation,” as Palestinian children are indoctrinated to believe, but is instead fuelled by Israel having a different ideology of true Democracy and Human Rights in a region where most leaders are hostile to both.
