The United Church of Canada made a revealing statement here: “United Church of Canada Calls for Immediate Ceasefire in Israel and Palestine,” United Church of Canada, October 7, 2023:
The United Church condemns the attacks launched on communities in southern Israel by Hamas, and the ongoing daily violence meted out against Palestinians by Israel’s deepening occupation in Palestinian territories….Echoing the statement issued by the World Council of Churches, The United Church of Canada is deeply concerned about the risks of spiralling conflict between Palestinian armed groups and Israeli forces.
For starters, no entity known as “Palestine” exists. ‘Palestine’ isn’t a state, despite being declared one by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which claims 57 member states, including “Palestine.”
Somewhere, somehow, the disingenuous World Council of Churches (WCC) and the BDS-supporting United Church of Canada (UCC) have missed the abundantly documented history of the Palestinian jihad against Israel. To call for a ceasefire in the midst of an all-out war is as ridiculous as calling for a “ceasefire” on “both sides” while the World War II was raging. This current Israeli war on Hamas in Gaza was initiated by Hamas, and it did so in the most calculated and gruesome fashion. The UK Express released a headline: ‘Worse than ISIS’: Hamas terrorists ‘behead Israeli soldiers’ in sickening footage.
Hamas is supported by Iran and its proxies, and its unprecedented attack was launched at a time when Israel was perceived to be weakened — it was distracted by interference from the Biden administration in its internal affairs, an interference that is ongoing. Then there are the billions that have flowed into Iranian coffers via Biden’s hostage deal, and before that, Obama’s backroom deals (see also HERE); as well as continued Palestinian funding from the Biden administration.
In March, Palestinian Islamic Jihad declared that the “IDF is disintegrating before our eyes.”
The Palestinian imperative to obliterate Israel from the River to the Sea has been escalating for some time– in brutality and boldness.
While sinister organizations, even those operating under the banner of Christianity, pretend to care about “both sides,” they conveniently ignore the key threat: the longstanding Palestinian jihad against Israel.
The United Church joins with all those praying for a just peace in the Holy Land and urges global leaders to work urgently for an end to the current violence, an end to the ongoing occupation of Palestinian territories, and a just and lasting peace for Palestinians and Israelis.
What the UCC is really requesting is that Israel stop defending itself. This would mean the obliteration of the Jewish state. The UCC cloaks its statement in a monstrous disguise — as a “prayer.”
Israel must defend itself alone. The gloves are off, and antisemites are being exposed everywhere.
