Remember how I drew attention, a couple of posts ago, to a duo of blogging Methodist ministers' extraordinary joint denunciation of their pro-Israel Jewish critics? A denunciation that remains inexplicable?
Well, the ministers have now reacted to the pearls of wisdom I cast:
Another Methodist minister, who has a blog of his own, adds:
The above testimony to Christian charity, concern for
Jewish-Christian relations, sensitivity towards the mainstream
Jewish position regarding Israel, and (vide my post) compassion for Christians suffering the most heinous Islamic persecution abroad, is taken from here
We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East. (From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)
