Jewish Council for Public Affairs Praises Presbyterian Church's Call to Cut Aid to Israel


According to the AP:

Presbyterian leaders want the U.S. to end aid to Israel unless the country stops settlement expansions in disputed....territories.

Delegates of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted Friday to support the call during the church's general assembly in Minneapolis. The measure passed with 82 percent of the vote.

Jewish groups in the U.S. have long taken issue with various Presbyterian statements on Middle East peace. But at least one group offered....praise Friday, calling the church's overall report on Middle East issues an important signal by leaders of the 2 million-member church.

Jewish Council for Public Affairs vice president Ethan Felson says it strengthens support for Israel's right to exist and removes comparisons of Israeli policy to apartheid.
Ethan Felson must be out of his mind.  Once again, the mainstream Jewish establishment proves to be failing us, and we highly suggest that you be careful where you send your money.  Please note, the JCPA is not just "one group" as the AP suggests.
