“I will bless those who bless you (Israel) and curse those who curse you.” Genesis.
In the churches listed below, there are those within the flock who are friendly towards Israel. Sometimes, there are two branches of the same church, one liberal, one conservative. The liberal ones are the ones against Israel. There is oftentimes, a difference between leadership and membership. When doing this research, claims are based on trend and documentation.
This page is not an attempt to smear the membership or the leaders. This is predominantly a collection of churches who have documented anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian tendencies while ignoring the war crimes of the Hamas. It is up to the membership of these churches to change the direction of the church.
Most of these churches call for Divestment, Boycott, and Divestment from Israel.
The Unitarian Universalists are a far left bunch of hippies from the 60's who take every liberal stance they can get their hands on from illegal immigration, to sexual deviancy, to anti Israel rhetoric.
The Unitarians have their own UN office
It does not take a rocket scientist to realize this church has a greater affinity to the Hamas then they do to Israel.
United Church of Christ
The United Church of Christ (UUC) is a far left leaning church that is more political than evangelical. Here is a link to the New Hampshire "office" located at the hub of religious political activity in NH. The UUC has compiled a list of Israeli companies who work in the West Bank and the Golan Heights for the purpose of having their own brand of economic sanctions against Israel. There is no mention of the Palestinians and surrounding Muslim nations that attacked Israel in 1967 in an attempt to kill the Jews. Clearly a one sided racist policy against the Jews of Israel.
Like the Unitarian church, the Episcopal church is driven by militant homosexuality and is vehemently anti Israel.
The Methodist church is another left wing church who continues to move towards divesting funds from Israel. In Islam, this is called soft jihad. The art of war against Israel without weapons.
World Council of Churches
Founded in 1948....ironically, or not, the same year that Israel was reestablished. The World Council of Churches is missing one word from their title....liberal. They routinely take anti Israel stances. Take a look at their forum attacking Israel held from late May to early June 2010.
The Hub.....140 Sheep Davis Road, Pembroke, NH 03275
Near the mall in Concord is a nefarious building tucked away behind some trees where the bulk of the anti-Israel work is done in the name of the "church". The building hosts the pro-Hamas and amnesty loving United Church of Christ. Check out their headquarters web site where there is this post...We suggest the use of BDS as a non-violent tool. BDS means boycott Israeli Jews, divest from Israeli Jews, and Sanctions Against Israeli Jews! They even provide for you an extensive list of Jewish organizations you can boycott. Since Christ himself was Jewish, I wonder what He would think of their thoughts of divestment from Israeli Jews. But wait, as if that was not enough, the very address houses another amnesty loving organization, the New Hampshire "Council" of churches. The third is the New Hampshire Bible Study with the notorious David Vincent Lamarre as its executive director. If you have read our page NH Hall of Shame, then you are well aware of Mr. Lamarre's anti-Israel ideology.
Churches for Middle east "Peace"
This organization is a national hub of anti-Israel churches.
Church World Service
Here is another organization under the banner of church that is obsessed with helping Obama bash Israel as can be easily found on their web site.
Middle East Council of Churches
The Middle East Council of Churches is well known in Israel as being a militantly anti-Israel organization. In a 2002 Easter letter, Riad Jarjour, General Secretary of MECC, called Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon “a war criminal” and “the Prince of Darkness whose faithfulness to his master is long standing.”
He is the Melkite Greek Catholic the Lady of the Annunciation (Boston)
Salim Bustros is from
Our Lady of the Annunciation in Boston, in Newton Mass. Israel today had the following to write about him..."
The final statement reflected that position. It listed the “occupation” of Arab lands, the building of Israel’s security barrier, military checkpoints, the jailing of terrorists (defined in the statement as “political prisoners”) and the general disruption of Palestinian life as some of the main reasons behind the exodus of Palestinian Christians and Muslim attacks on the Jewish state.
Cyril Salim Bustros, the Lebanon-born Greek archbishop of Our Lady of the Annunciation in Boston, Massachusetts was responsible for delivering the final statement.
In clarifying remarks, he stated that “the Holy Scriptures cannot be used to justify the return of Jews to Israel and the displacement of the Palestinians, to justify the occupation by Israel of Palestinian lands.”
He then escalated the situation by declaring that the original promises made by God to the children of Israel “were nullified by Christ. There is no longer a chosen people.” More on the story here.
Reform Church of America
The reform church is a church that thinks you can go to heaven by being good. This is contrary to what the bible says. While they are not storing up their good deeds, they are engaged in political propagandizing against Israel as can be clearly seen on their web site.
United Church of Christ-Disciples of Christ
A ten second search of their web site can find a litany of anti-Israel articles with none condemning Hamas terrorism.
The militant wing of this "church" is their Global Ministries agenda.
"Neturei Karta is Aramaic for "Guardians of the City" or "Guardians of the Gates." Others say it's Aramaic for "Nut Kases!" They are a group of Ultra-Orthodox pseudo-Jewish heretics who reject all forms of Zionism and actively oppose the State of Israel. They claim to have a membership of about 5,000 but it is probably one zero less... about 500. However, what they lack in numbers, they make up in enthusiasm and outrageous behavior. Even though these freaks may act as if they're raving lunatics, they may actually be quite sane for, in both words and actions, this cult-like flock of devotees really do believe they are doing God's work!"
