"Christians" in Brown Shirts II

The US United Church of Christ has taken a leaf out of the Anglicans' copy of Mein Kampf and adopted an "Israel Divestment" resolution.

According to the Simon Weisenthal Centre, the resolution is "functionally antisemitic":

There is a genocide in Darfur, an occupied people in Tibet, persecutions of religious leaders in China, the disappearing of Christians into the North Korean Gulag, but the UCC leadership has passed a divestment resolution against only one nation, the nation of Israel," said Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Associate Dean of the Wiesenthal Center. "The UCC Synod also voted to demand that Israel lay her citizens defenseless before Palestinian suicide terror. By treating Israel within a different moral yardstick that the rest of the world, these moves are functionally antisemitic, undercut the forces of peace and moderation, and embolden the forces of terrorism. Finally, these resolutions make a mockery of a previous commitment by the UCC to combat antisemitism. The concerns, hopes and aspirations of world Jewry have been swept aside and relations with the Jewish community have been severely damaged," Cooper continued.

The divestment vote shocked many observers since the UCC official website is still assserting that the General Synod would reject divestment, but would "adopt broader strategies of economic and other engagement to work for peace in the Middle East."

"By virtue of these actions, the UCC has disqualified itself as a legitimate partner for a just and equitable peace in the Holy Land," Rabbi Cooper concluded.



I agree.

May their Houses of Superstition stand empty for all time.
May their gourds fail to rattle, and their feathers fall limp.
May the flies of a thousand elephants infest their bake sales.
May a million watts of rap drown out their guitar recitals.
May the condoms they distribute be riddled with pinholes.
May their soup kitchens stink so badly that even Muscatel addicts avoid them.
May the directors of their peace program meet Zarqawi.
