The Trumpet website reports today (July 13, 2012) that the governing body of the Church of England voted on July 9 to support a pro-Palestinian group dedicated to the demonization of of Israel.
The General Assembly passed a motion to endorse the Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) — a group that blames Israel for the failure of the peace process and calls for a boycott of Israel, as well as the hacking of government websites and a sit-in at Israel’s embassies.
The Church of England motion was endorsed by 201 votes to 54, with 93 abstentions.
The Israeli Embassy in England criticized the motion, saying, “By supporting this group, the Church of England has chosen to amplify one-sided voices and to single out Israel — the only country (in the Middle East) where Christian rights are enshrined and the Christian population is growing.”
The Church of England has lost it, completely! Christians have a Biblical obligation to stand by Israel and the Jewish people (Gen 12:3), and pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Ps 122:6). But then the C of E has little regard for that which is Biblical, anymore.
