Why is it that the WCC is promoting the “activism” of a noted hater of Israel, who falsely accused the Jewish state of poisoning him? Whatever hope there was that the WCC would change its approach to conflict in the Holy Land under the leadership of recently appointed Interim General Secretary Ioan Sauca has come to naught.
If Dr. Jerry Pillay is chosen as the World Council of Churches' next General Secretary, it is reasonable to assume that the organization will continue to use anti-Zionism as a unifying agenda, just as many Arab and Muslim leaders have done in the Middle East.
By restarting dialogue with IJCIC, the WCC was able to tell the world that despite some difficulties, it was still able to maintain decent relations with Jewish leaders. It didn’t last long.
The World Council of Churches needs to explain why its activists in the Holy Land violate rules against engaging in political activism while in the Holy Land.
The WCC expresses more concern over Jewish self-defense than attacks on Jews and their homeland. Its most recent statement penned by General Secretary Olav Fyske Tveit is no exception.

Yusef Daher, a Christian "peacemaker," in Jerusalem is promoting Jew-hatred and lionizing rock throwers. What will his patron, the World Council of Churches do?
Yusef Daher, who works at the WCC-supported Jerusalem Interchurch Center (JIC) in Jerusalem, shamelessly promotes theological hatred of the Jewish state in the name of peace.
