    Stop The United Church Of Christ's Anti-israel Resolutions

    On July 1, 2005, the United Church of Christ (UCC), founded in 1957 as the union of several Christian traditions, convenes its General Synod, in Atlanta, Georgia. On the agenda are resolutions calling for the dismantling of Israel’s security barrier, and divestment from companies doing business with Israel.

    This comes at a time when Israel is removing all Jewish settlements from Gaza, when she has released 900-plus Palestinians held for abetting terrorism, and as Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas meet face-to-face in pursuit of an equitable peace.

    The WiesenthalCenter has directly urged the head of the UCC to defeat these unfair and dangerous initiatives. We have also asked United States Congressmen who are members of the UCC to raise their voices against these resolutions. And, finally, we have asked that we be allowed to address the conclave directly to ensure that the voice of the victims of Palestinian terrorism are heard. To date, the Church has been silent to our pleas.

    We need your help today



    Please join our protest to UCC head Rev. John H. Thomas and other leaders of the



    By acting now, you will be among the first 25,000 protests that we must generate in the few days before the General Synod convenes this Friday!

    Recently, when another Protestant denomination considered similar resolutions against Israel, Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, had this to say, "Israelis are already traumatised and feel that the world is against them. This proposal, if it is agreed, would be another knife in the back. Christians who owe so much to the Hebrew Scriptures and to Israel itself should not be among those who attack Israel in such a way."

    Since the Holocaust, Jews have appreciated the attempts of many church groups including the UCC to promote cooperation and good will. But the passing of resolutions so arrogantly oblivious to the safety and future of Israel's civilian population will result in inestimable damage to the relationship between our communities.

    Thanks. I signed. It's absalutely disgusting. The Christian Churches have been persecuting, burning, killing, bashing Jews for 2,000 years. It will never stop.

    I signed too. These Christians might as well start praying to Allah 5 times a day. However, I believe this time the real Christians r being separated from the false ones. We'll soon enough know who the pseudo- churches are and let the Muslims do away with Christendom's harlots. Sorry, if this is harsh, but I am mad.

    persecuted and looking for revenge

    eh, i came from a christian background but from malaysia, an antisemitic country.

    got bullied by muslims there, even wanted to convert me during one time, even show me a book about a catholic who became a muslim in the end.

    the way they treated me in the past, man, show them no mercy.

    i remember their faces, extremist for sure.
    can see the look on their faces, reminds me of iraqi terrorists.
    take them down piece by piece.

    do what ever is neccessary to hunt them down , treat them like dogs.
    muslims in this world would want israel swept to the sea, christians annihilated and raped women and make their children terrorists.

    Not true christian churches. There are many false religions out there to deceive as many as possible. Any so called Christian Church that opposes Israel opposes God as well. It's that simple.

    That's true. There are many out there that call themselves "Christians" that aren't. Many are blinded and are wolves in sheeps clothing.

    Surely no Christian church should either support or oppose a nation state. Jesus advised his followers to be "no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world."

    jesus did not repect the roman empire
    if you thing jesus would not be on the side of his country men please reread what you have been reading
    it has been all about keeping his family alive he did bring them back to the LAND
    no one would stand up for them but He did and brought them HOME

    Au contraire

    According to the bible, He asked that his followers respect governmental authority, as long as it did not compromise biblical teachings. According to the bible, when asked if his followers should pay the tax ordered by Rome, He asked, Who's image is on that Roman coin? "Ceasars" they replied. He asked his followers to; "Pay to Ceasar what is Ceasars, and pay what is God's to God."

    This sort of lends credence to my theory that christianity is inherently anti-semitic. And that the anti-semitism arises from the forced incorporation of Judaism into Christianity via the theft of the old testament, the ten commandments etc. The very existence of the Jews is a stark reminder to the Christian that much of his own religion is borrowed. Unless the Jews are destroyed, the Christians cannot truly legitimize this theft.

    hhmmm....

    What lends credence to your theory?

    I think in its true essence Christianity can be seen as being anti - jewish as a religion, as it would be anti other 'false' (so called!) religions, but not anti- jewish as an ethnicity.

    Interesting.

    Why should people stop others from speaking no matter how much they disagree with the opposition of the other side?

    If you view the opposition to be totally wrong then logically wouldn't you let them make their own presence be made for the world to see how wrong they are?

    Why all the silencing and protesting?
