Meanwhile, the post's author, our clerical friend from Virginia Water, is surely scraping the bottom of the barrel when he invokes that embarrassing leftwing Labour sufferer from foot-in-mouth disease, former British government minister Clare Short, a practised anti-Israel warhorse, as an ally in the fight against specifically Christian support for Israel.
Says Clare, plugging Sizer's tome attacking Christian Zionism:
“This is a very fine and important book. All Christians who believe that Jesus favoured peacemakers, should read it and realise what terrible harm is being done in the name of Christianity. And all who are concerned about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict should read it to understand how Christian Zionism disables the US as fair minded mediator. European foreign policy thinkers should read it,because this distortion of US political space, puts a greater responsibility on European governments to stand up for justice and international law”
