Presbyterian Moderator slams Zionist lobby
Last month, the Rev. Rick Horst, national moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada, said "Palestinians are daily harassed and abused and treated with indignities that are simply not allowable under international law, yet it continues to persist because of frankly, the power of the Jewish and Zionist lobbies both in America and frankly, all around the world, including Canada."
Horst went on to say "Palestinians are in fact not a terrorist nation but a terrorized nation." He added that "too many uncritical, simplistic, level Christians around the world believe that Israel's claim as God's chosen people allows it to do virtually anything under the guise of security in Israel/Palestine to protect their land."
The Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center responded in a statement that said the Presbyterian Church in Canada is "allowing itself to be a vehicle of anti-Semitism and the enabling of terrorism is something to be condemned in the strongest terms."
What do you think? Is the Presbyterian Church in Canada a vehicle of anti-Semitism and an enabler of terrorism?
