The ecumenical threat to life and limb posed by large crowds unprotected by adequate safety precautions doesn't stand a chance against the enduring false narrative of Israel's persecution of Christians.
Accuracy about biographical details of a historical figure central to a leading world religion shouldn't be too hard.
In his recent book, retired professor David M. Crump argues explicitly that political Zionism is the modern-day equivalent of Nazism. “American Evangelism,” Crump writes, “is helping to finance political Zionism’s flagrant imitation of Nazi Germany.”
The World Council of Churches called on the Palestinian Authority to rein in violence against Christians in the West Bank. In doing so, it cited a well-known Zionist website, IsraellyCool, as one of its sources of information. This is frankly astounding.
When Independent Catholic News published, nearly verbatim, a press statement from Churches for Middle East Peace about a brutal attack at a farm in the West Bank, it omitted a crucial sentence that revealed the attack was likely perpetrated by Arabs living nearby. In light of the omission and other articles published by ICN about the farm where the attack took place, readers might conclude the attack was perpetrated by Jews living nearby.
In a video published in June, 2021, J. Herbert Nelson, II, the highest ranking elected official in the Presbyterian Church USA declared that his fellow Christians need to start looking at Jewish individuals in the United States who are supporting "evil" Israeli policies, which he characterized as “20th century slavery” and “some of the worst atrocities the world has ever seen.”
A cadre of Evangelical scholars portray the Jewish quest for survival and well-being as more worthy of contempt than efforts to kill and terrorize Jews in their homeland.
Haaretz's English edition commendably amends a report which stated as fact an unverified claim by Christian leaders alleging rising Israeli violence against clergy.
In an article about Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett (above), Christian Century misleads its readers about violence against Palestinians in the West Bank, falsely declaring that Israeli officials have not responded publicly to these attacks. The same article omits numerous attacks on Israelis, falsely declaring that Israeli attacks on Palestinians are "unprovoked." Why is the magazine omitting this context from its reportage on conflict in the Holy Land?
The New Zealand Film Festival (NZFF) is currently showing the dishonest film, "'Til Kingdom Come" produced by filmmakers Maya Zinshtein and Abraham (Abie) Troen. CAMERA has sent a letter NZFF asking that it warn its viewers about the problems with this film, which was marred by two doctored quotes and numerous other problems when it was first shown to viewers in late 2020.
