Eight out of 10 Presbyterian leaders wants the US Government to end aid to Israel, to stop “settlement expansions in disputed Palestinian territories”.
Presbyterian Church publishes report on Middle East issues that was approved with 82 per cent of the vote during the church’s annual general assembly in Minneapolis.
The report is meant as a guide for the denomination’s more than two million members The move was immediately criticized by Jewish groups.
But other aspects of the report on Middle East issues adopted by delegates of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) earned qualified praise from pro-Israel organizations, which have long taken issue with various Presbyterian statements on Middle East peace.
“We feel we’ve brought together people who previously had trouble talking about some of these issues together,” said the Rev. Karen Dimon of Northminster Presbyterian Church in North Syracuse, N.Y., and chairwoman of the committee that produced the 172-page report.
Ethan Felson, vice president of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, said he still took issue with major aspects of the report, but said it contained important signals that could lessen long-standing tension between Presbyterians and pro-Israel Jews. He said it strengthens support for Israel’s right to exist and removes comparisons of Israeli policy to apartheid.
“Concerns remain, but I have hope that authentic dialogue and better relations can come of this,” Felson said.

The US do not send “aid” to Israel. The US have trade and defense relations with the Jewish state.
What this Church in the US is asking for, is similar to what 20 Muslim nations have done since 1948. “Boycott Israel, till we have got our hands back on our Palestine”.
To end “settlement expansion in disputed Palestinian territories”, is to declare war on the Word of God. Because these areas are the ancient Mountains of Zion. The Biblical districts are called Judea and Samaria.
And if the mountains of Zion ever gets “Juden free”, than the Presbyterian Church has managed to make Satan the true God. Because than the Prophetic books of the Bible are nothing but lies and falsehood.
You better chose wisely which side you want to be on.

I was thinking about Israel today and I think USA money to Israel is nation-building. I am not in favor of this type investment.
Haven’t you figured out yet the only pro-Zionist Christians are doopt? Christians are concerned for souls, not (….censored). By Editor.
Matt: if you continue like this, I will have to spam you.
‘Stirring Times’ by Finn is on-line. Finn was Hebrew speaking Brit in Palestine, 1850s. Says euro-Jews’ Palestine-born children retained the nationality of their parents back then when Episcopils were the only Prods down there.
Abbott’s ‘Israel in Europe’ is on-line too. You guys were held captive by Henry III in England, 1252-1255.
someone needs to correct the world…the catholic church are not Christians…and the Presbyterians and others are not far behind..I’m tired of being equated with the catholic church…..
What an incredibly ignorant thing to say. Clearly you, sir, are no Christian.
Satan has certainly confused the whole world. First, Christianity is Satan’s religious system. The head of Christianity is the Catholic church – the protestants are the whore daughters in the book of Revelation. Jesus is the anti-Messiah. Read the whole scripture. Yahweh gave us His kingdom rules (the Torah & 10 Commandments) in the very beginning. He changes not and has not changed anything. The Torah is still in effect today and as much as Christians like to teach that the Law has been done away with, Yahweh did NOT send His son, Yahshua to do away with the laws He made. He sent His son to show us how to live according to those law in order for us to be righteous. Yahweh does not have a religious system. He has a Kingdom which He will soon establish when HIS Messiah, Yahshua – not Jesus, returns. Do a study on the names if you can find a book that is not written by a Christian. Do a study on Yahweh’s feast days, which are in the scriptures – and try to find where Easter and Christmas are there. (they aren’t) Do a study on the 4th commandment – keeping holy the 7th day Sabbath, which has never changed – except in Christianity, by the pope who changed it to Sunday. Study the Messiah of the NT whose name is Yahshua, not Jesus. You will see that He kept all the laws and feast days His Father set in place, which proves He is the true Messiah. Jesus is the anti-Messiah because he is against the laws and is head of a religious system that is pagan and not of Yahweh the creator.
Wake up people. The name on which you should call on to be saved has been removed from your bibles 7,000 times and replaced with the LORD. You have been lied to. It is the work or Satan to keep you from salvation and eternal life. Pray to Father Yahweh that He will open your eyes to truth and grant you eternal life, there is no salvation in any other name than Yahshua, (which means Yahweh is salvation) who came in His father’s name, Yahweh, to save you from the lies of Satan.
I understand that you will probably reject the above truths, but before you do, give it some study, especially if you have never heard it before. Hopefully you will see the truth and begin your journey down the narrow path to salvation. There is much more to learn once you have the understanding of the true Names. These names are the Keys to the Kingdom and to eternal life.
“The US do not send “aid” to Israel. The US have trade and defense relations with the Jewish state.”
This is patently false- Since the 1970s, Israel has been one of the top recipients of U.S. foreign aid. The US provides $3 billion in military AID annually to Israel, and until 2007 the US was also providing millions in economic AID. The US senate is currently reviewing a bill that would increase AID to Israel by 25%.
“What this Church in the US is asking for, is similar to what 20 Muslim nations have done since 1948. “Boycott Israel, till we have got our hands back on our Palestine”.
What unfounded, baseless, sensationalist, propagandist manure this is.
“To end “settlement expansion in disputed Palestinian territories”, is to declare war on the Word of God. Because these areas are the ancient Mountains of Zion. The Biblical districts are called Judea and Samaria.”
As soon as the Almighty testifies to that fact, so shall it be done. Until then, there are 5 bulidings and 3000 people missing from New York because of the US’ support of Israel’s facist and Imperialist policies
