Antisemitism: Time for Christian Individuals and Congregations to Speak Up

Antisemitism: Time for Christian Individuals and Congregations to Speak Up
May 6, 2015, ERIC MALLOY

The dark and damning cloud of Christian antisemitism over the centuries has morphed, changed names, and re-defined itself many times, but its momentum and influence are as evil and pervasive as ever. Among today’s manifestations within a swath of Canadian (and world-wide) Christianity is the organization Sabeel.

In Vancouver in April, under the conference banner of Seeking the Peace of Jerusalem: Overcoming Christian Zionism in the Quest for Justice, Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek and his entourage treated attendees to a blend of false teaching that inevitably flows when Christian leaders decide to stray from Biblical truth, justice, and authority and a balanced view of history. The conference, presented by Canadian Friends of Sabeel and co-sponsored by the Anglican Church of Canada, Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA), Presbyterian Church in Canada and United Church of Canada, was both an anti-Christian Zionist diatribe, and a pro-Palestinian / anti-Israel series of messages.

The conference sub-title was: “…examining the prevalence of Christian Zionism, its influence in the mainstream churches, and its adverse impact on the realization of a just peace.” That’s quite a mouthful from “Christian” leaders who apparently have little if anything to say about the attitudes, activities and actions of Israel’s enemies and haters. Could it be that they are among them?
