    The manner in which these churches single out the Jewish State of Israel with unfounded, unfair, and clearly antagonistic propaganda and demands for sanctions makes plain their hatred for Jews in general and Israel in particular. Apart from these churches sinful behavior, all they are doing is further fanning the flames of Arab hatred for Israel, making reconciliation and peace even more unlikely, and promoting more Arab terror and murder of innocent Israelis thus insuring that Israel will be forced to take even more severe measures to protect her citizens. Every day Israeli civilians are pounded by unprovoked Arab rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, I wonder why these churches couldn’t find time to condemn that?
