Ioan Sauca, the interim general secretary of the World Council of Churches announced the WCC has reshaped its operations in Jerusalem and will not be participating in the upcoming 20th anniversary memorial of the UN anti-racism conference that took place in Durban South Africa in 2001.
Filmmakers Maya Zinshtein and Abraham (Abie) Troen did the the same thing to David Brog that they did to former U.S. President Donald Trump. They altered what he said in a manner that fundamentally changes the meaning of what he said at a 2018 meeting of Christians United for Israel.
It’s appropriate that after a long period of isolation, suffering, and polarization coinciding with the COVID-19 pandemic, CAMERA can offer some qualified good news about Christian Century, historically referred to as the flagship magazine of mainline Protestantism in the United States. The magazine has finally come to grips with the legacy of its second-longest-running editor, James M. Wall.
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.
Filmmakers Maya Zinsthein and Abraham Troen withheld information from their film’s audience that demonstrated that American Evangelical leaders were part of the effort to achieve a normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates which became known as the Abraham Accords. They knew about these peacemaking efforts a calendar year before they came to fruition, but did not tell their audience about them.

A documentary critical of Israel and its Christian supporters in the United States scheduled to appear on PBS stations on March 29, the second day of Passover, includes a fake quote attributed to former U.S. President Donald Trump.
Despite Mitri Raheb's assertions to the contrary, Jesus was not a Palestinian. Jesus was born in Bethlehem and grew up in Nazareth, two towns in Judea, preached in Galilee (an area inhabited by the Israelite tribe of Naphtali), and taught in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. None of these areas were called Palestine until long after Jesus’s crucifixion.
In Isaac’s sorrowful and self-pitying narrative, Palestinian suffering is the fault of pro-Israel Christians in the United States and the Jewish state. Nothing is ever the fault of the Palestinians themselves.
Mae Elise Cannon’s book promotes two Muslim organizations, one of which has ties to Palestinian terrorism and another of which has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, an Islamist organization that has promoted Islamic extremism and anti-Israel bias throughout the world including the United States. The text also obscures the supersessionist hostility of Naim Ateek, one of the founding fathers of Palestinian Christian Liberation Theology (PCLT).
