“We cannot rejoice in the death of another, even if that person is regarded by many as a threat. Proverbs 24:17 says ‘Do not rejoice when your enemies fall, and do not let your heart be glad when they stumble’".In his blog http://www.methodistpreacher.co.uk/, the pro-Israel Methodist preacher David Hallam outlines what is objectionable about this statement in the context of the Methodists' obsessions.
But there is far, far worse.
In a background document "Jewish and Muslim Perspectives on the Land of Israel-Palestine" (http://pdfcast.org/pdf/methodist-church-jewish-and-muslim-perspectives-on-israel-palestine) the British Methodists appear to be dipping into the trough of antisemitism.
The esteemed Elder of Ziyon has the grubby details and a masterly critique: http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2011/05/outrageous-uk-methodist-church-document.html
Update: The Methodists have been shamed into removing the document (hat tip: reader Ian G.) See David Hallam's blog for details.
