  • Elder of Ziyon
The World Council of Churches just had a meeting in Switzerland where they issued a statement of their position on Israel and the Palestinians.
The WCC executive committee, meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, on 13-18 November 2015, accordingly expresses its grave concern at recent developments in Israel and Palestine, involving renewed violent attacks against people of both communities and measures entailing long-term time division of access to Al-Aqsa mosque and affecting access to other holy sites. Such measures further diminish hope in the realization of this vision.
"Renewed violent attacks against people of both communities" - so Arabs stabbing and running their cars over Jews has exactly the same moral weight as Israelis defending themselves from those attacks? Has the IDF been attacking any random Arabs they come across?

"measures entailing long-term time division of access to Al-Aqsa mosque and affecting access to other holy sites" - While I would welcome a fair division and equal access to the Temple Mount (a phrase that the church group chooses to discard i favor of "Al Aqsa Mosque") I cannot find a single statement by the Israeli government that would allow such access. I'd love to know which hours of the day Jews can visit without fear of being screamed at or attacked.

In other words, this paragraph shows that the WCC doesn't give a damn about facts. They are dhimmis, wanting to accept the wildest Arab accusations without proof, so they can issue a supposedly "even-handed" resolution that diminishes Jewish rights.

The one-sided nature of the resolution continues:
Neither the spate of individual violent attacks against Israelis, nor the violent response and extra-judicial killings that have followed, can be condoned. They further undermine hopes for peace, already seriously diminished by the perpetuation of the illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories, successive restrictions and impositions, growing settlement activity, impunity and the international community’s inadequate response. We are deeply concerned that this heightened sense of hopelessness and frustration risks generating further uncontrolled waves of violence, with tragic consequences for the people of the region.

So the "individual violent attacks" are also Israel's fault, because they come from "hopelessness and frustration." Not a word about how the Palestinian government and its ruling party celebrates the attacks and encourages more. They can find a context for why Arabs stab Jews, but they can find no such context of why Jews might want to do things to avoid being stabbed.

I guess that's because, in the Church's eyes, only Jews have to turn the other cheek.

This is a disgusting resolution, where facts are discarded in favor of the politically correct position that Israel is always to blame. And because of resolutions like these that equate the attackers and the attacked,  Arabs feel emboldened to perform further attacks, as we have seen today in Tel Aviv and Gush Etzion.

Of course, this is part of a pattern of lying and anti-Israel incitement from the WCC.
