The situation for the Christians in the region is distressing. We need to consider a boycott of Israel.
Bishop Tor Jørgensen goes on to tell the newspaper Nordland that the initiative to boycott Israeli goods comes from Christian Palestinians.
Jørgensen and the other Lutheran Bishops of Norway were on a journey to Jordan, Israel and «Palestine» in January. The Bishops received the so-called «Kairos-document» from the Arab Christians who recommends a boycott of Israel.
«I feel we have to reflect over their suggestion, even a boycott of goods and services from israel» says Bishop Jørgensen.

Last year 165.000 Christians were martyred, 80 per cent of them in Muslim countries.
No Christian were martyred in Israel, the only nation in the Middle East who practice freedom of religion.
Why does Bishop Jørgensen not suggest a boycott of goods from Saudi Arabia?
This is the true racist Apartheid state in the Middle East, that since 1948 have banned even Jewish aircraft to fly over Saudi air space?
Why do men like Jørgensen feel Christians in the Middle East will get more freedom and justice under Islamic rule than under democratic rule in the state of Israel?
Bishops like Tor Jørgensen have deleted the promises in the Bible in regards to the Jewish people. That has made him an enemy of God of Israel. Jørgensen needs to repent or perish.
Check the Wikipedia site ‘Palestian People’ and you will find that genetically the Palestians and the Jews were originally the same people. In other words, not all the Jews left Palestine after the Bar Kochba revolt in 135, some stayed and eventually became Christians and in the 7th century the majority became Muslims. In other words, the Palestinians are the Jews who have never left Palestine. Their ancestors probably include at least some of the original disciples of Christ himself. Genetics has simply demonstrated what some of us have suspected for years. So why should the Palestinians, these children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob be forced out of their ancestoral homeland simply because they are Christian or Muslim?
A true Christian, a true believer of Christ will not deny that Israel is God’s promised land. Will not deny that Jesus Christ (when he comes) will reign from there some day. And they will not deny that the Messiah’s coming is near.
What’s your definition of a Christian? I doubt that it wll be the same as what is the truth.
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
The vast majority of Christians DO in fact deny the That Jesus Christ will “reign” for the Israeli City of Jerusalem. The New Testament speaks of New Jersueman which will decend from on high.
i need to know more about this ministry. please tall me something about ur ministry because i want to be part of ur ministry.
Thank you bishop for taking this courageous stand against Israeli oppression. Their occupation has gone on for almost half a century, their colonists openly steal land and terrorise palestinians. It is an immoral regime and all forms of sanctions and boycotts should be raised against it until it becomes a moral nation once again.
