FROM THE CJN: CIJA slams United Church stance on Mideast

Paul Lungen, posted here May 14, 2012

 TORONTO — A longstanding disagreement over United Church statements on Israel burst into the open last week with Jewish leaders slamming a report by the church’s working group on Israel/Palestine.

The report contains “elements that are obscene to Jews,” it “trivializes the Holocaust,” questions Israel as a Jewish state, calls for a boycott and unfairly singles Israel out for condemnation while ignoring the plight of Christians around the world, said Shimon Fogel, CEO of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs (CIJA).
