The Leftist World Council of Churches and the Jews
You remember that when you could still escape Hitler’s final solution, they joined in a massive voice, invoking then as they do now their “Christian compassion,” as they enunciate it, for the oppressed, and demanded that Christian nations open their gates to your refugees.
You don’t remember that? Of course you don’t, because they decided it was better to send you back to Germany than to have more Jews among them.
The World Council of Churches has declared war on you: a war that is being fought from the pulpit, with reports and findings, with propaganda, with boycotts, divestment, and sanctions, but a war nonetheless -- a war directed at your very existence.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center has called for a meeting with the president of the World Council of Churches asking for a cessation of this new wave of anti-Semitism, and noting that this propaganda only stirs the passions of anti-Semites and does not help the Palestinians an iota.
But what the good people at the Wiesenthal Center fail to comprehend is that the World Council of Churches already understands this. The campaign is not about improving the lot of the Palestinians. It is about using the Palestinian issue as a means of generating anti-Semitism. The World Council of Churches is not ignorant of where such a campaign might lead.
You can not be a good leftist today -- even a Jewish leftist -- without being an anti-Semite. There was a reason they called it “National Socialism.”
Of all the states on the planet that have a religious identity, only a Jewish state stands as anathema to the World Council of Churches, because a Jewish State can be, according to them, racist, unlike Muslim states, which are, as you know, pluralistic, tolerant, and liberal democracies.
And if you are so naïve, like some of your effete intellectuals and your obsequious leftist rabbis -- who never saw a position of the leftist Protestant clergy that they couldn’t embrace -- to think this is only about Israel, then ask yourself this one simple question:
If Israel were simply another Muslim state and not a Jewish state, and all the conditions “on the ground” were the same, would the World Council of Churches be obsessing about it, at Christmas -- what they now refer to as the Holiday Season -- no less?
