«If settlements continue to expand and proliferate, they will further complicate negotiations and may destroy any chance for peace».
These are the words of Samuel Kobia, who is the Secretary General of The World Council of Churches (WCC). On Thursday he called for «resistance to Israel’s decision to allow the expansion of Jewish settlements in East Jerusalem».
WCC said the decision «may destroy any chance for peace», Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported.
Samuel Kobia called on organisations related to the council «to act with resolve, in concert… to reverse this decision of the Israeli government and the settlement programme it represents».
Israel on Wednesday said it would build 900 new homes at the Gilo settlement in East Jerusalem, which Israel invaded and occupied in 1967 and subsequently annexed, a move not recognized by the international community.
Palestinians want East Jerusalem to be the capital of their future state.
Expressing«great disappointment», Kobia said the leading council of Christian and Orthodox churches «strongly condemns the decision… to expand the illegal Gilo settlement as we believe that this decision will hinder attempts now in process to restart the peace negotiations».
«People of conscience and good faith around the world are looking to the government of Israel now to move towards the resolution of an interminable conflict rather than continue with decades-old policies that have driven it towards the point of no return»
The WCC brings together 348 Protestant, Orthodox and Anglican churches representing about 560 million Christians in 110 countries.

It is not easy to find the best words to describe the utter foolishness of this statement from WCC. To brand the capital of the sovereign state of Israel as a «settlement» is not only a grave insult to the Jewish people.
It is also a gift to the enemies of God of the Bible, He who chose the Jewish people and called them to look after the city of David, Jerusalem. In 1967 this city was liberated from Islamic occupation. Todays fake Christians in the WCC tries to brake up a united Jerusalem and bring it back under the yoke of Islam.
When you claim to be a Global representative of 560 million Christians, you better be aware of what you are doing. By attacking the Biblical birth right of the Jewish people to build and live anywhere in Israel, a «Christian» do not only become a racist. He also gives the name of Jesus more negative publicity in Jewish World.
WCC do not represent God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. People who are members of any Church, or Christian organization, who are members of WCC, should renounce their support for this wicked council.
WCC is not only harming the Jewish people. It also put members of this organization in direct opposition to the Word of God. Churches who stay put as members of this council have joined the forces who have declared war on the true and living Messiah. He will soon return in the clods of Heaven and to the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem.
