Christians wake up! Muslims are massacring Christians all over Middle East. Only in israel are they safe and free.

Op-Ed: Why all this Christian anti-Israel Hatred?

Have the Christians in the West heard Islamists proclaiming daily that they will not stop until Christianity is wiped off the face of the earth?
The dramatic situation has been perfectly described by Rabbi Haïm Korsia, Chief Rabbi of France, who called for a reaction of fraternal solidarity in the face of hatred against Christians, and established a comparison with the destruction of Eastern Jewry:
“Where are the Jewish communities which once lived in Aleppo, Beirut, Alexandria, Cairo and Tripoli? Where are the schools of Nehardea and Pumbedita in Iraq? And where is the flourishing Judaism of Esfahan and Tehran? In our memory alone. Expelled, killed, decimated, persecuted and exiled, Eastern Christians are now personally experiencing the same experiences of the Jews who once lived in those places”.

Where are the schools of Nehardea and Pumbedita in Iraq? And where is the flourishing Judaism of Esfahan and Tehran? In our memory alone.
Christianity is dying in Syria and Iraq. Christian churches are demolished, Christian crosses are burned and replaced with flags of the Islamic State, Christian houses are destroyed, entire Christian communities are displaced, Christian children are massacred, and everything is done in plain sight. Islamists proclaim on a daily basis that they will not stop until Christianity is wiped off the face of the earth.
So are the world Christian bodies denouncing the Islamic forces for the ethnic cleansing, genocide and historic demographic-religious revolution their brethen is suffering? No. Christians these days are busy targeting the Israeli Jews.

The unholy lunacy of Israel-bashing churches

The campaign to isolate and delegitimize Israel picked up ammunition last week when the United Church of Christ called for divestment from companies it says profit from the occupation of Palestinian territories.
Two other Protestant denominations, the Episcopal Church and the Mennonite Church, took up but failed to pass similar measures.
None of this actually comes as any surprise: All three churches have long actively crusaded against Israel.
Indeed, a majority of the UCC synod last week also endorsed a resolution declaring Israeli actions in the West Bank and Gaza to be acts of apartheid. (It didn’t quite pass because it lacked a two-thirds majority.)
The UCC says it acted out of concern about “violence perpetuated through acts of terror and the Occupation” — itself a false moral equivalence, pretending that violence targeting innocent civilians is the same as Israel’s refusal to simply abandon the Palestinian territories.
Let’s be clear here: Jerusalem would like nothing more than to see a Palestinian state under peaceful Arab rule. But it can’t find any takers. (The Palestinian Authority keeps demanding impossible conditions — and when Israel withdrew unilaterally from Gaza, the PA quickly lost control of the area to Hamas, which is dedicated to Israel’s destruction.)
In any case, the UCC resolution is completely one-sided, with no concern about terror. It focuses entirely on Israel as the sole evil.
This, even as the UCC and the other denominations completely ignore the outright slaughter of Christians and Muslims throughout the Middle East by Hamas, ISIS and other terrorist forces. Ancient Christian communities face genocide, yet these American churches can’t stop obsessing about Israel.
Though ostensibly intended to push both sides to a peaceful solution to the Middle East, the divestment resolutions accomplish precisely the opposite.
Incidentally, the measures also include a boycott of Israeli West Bank products — which would hurt the Palestinians who’d lose jobs as a result far more than it would Israel’s economy.
Worst of all, the resolutions encourage Palestinian leaders not to negotiate by holding out the hope that the world will force the Jewish state to accept a suicidal peace deal. Which is not, as Israel’s foreign ministry rightly noted, either “a moral stance or a reality-based position.”
And no lofty expressions about yearning for peace can pretend otherwise
