“Christ at the Checkpoint”. This weeks conference is fully arranged to demonize the state of Israel.
This is what the conference writes about itself:
The aim of Christ at the Checkpoint is to provide an opportunity for evangelical Christians who take the Bible seriously to prayerfully seek a proper awareness of issues of peace, justice, and reconciliation. The conference will:
Empower and encourage the Palestinian church.
Expose the realities of the injustices in the Palestinian Territories and create awareness of the obstacles to reconciliation and peace.
Create a platform for serious engagement with Christian Zionism and an open forum for ongoing dialogue between all positions within the Evangelical theological spectrum.
Motivate participants to become advocates for the reconciliation work of the church in Palestine/Israel and its ramifications for the Middle East and the world.

It is always interesting to read about people who believe in “Christ”, and not Jesus the King of the Jews.
All who are willing to read the Bible, will find about 100 verses that speaks about the restoration of the Jewish people in their ancient home land.
To “spiritualize” so many verses is a difficult job. You need to look at the Word of God as metaphors and poetry. At the end of such an interpretation of the scriptures, you will become a promoter of universalism and relativism. Your message will be, in short terms: “Anything goes, but not Zionism and Messianic Judaism”.
It is a tragedy that people have been told by false teachers and false prophets to read the Bible, as some kind of fairy tale. It is nothing but wishful thinking that God of the Bible will accept those who demonize the Jews, and claim that all the promises of the Bible has been transferred to pagans who mock the Word in the name of “Christ”.
