The United Church of Canada has distinguished itself: it is now Canada’s official anti-Semitic denomination.
Why anti-Semitic? Because the United Church is ignoring Egypt’s persecution of Christian Copts, China’s repression of its minorities and its forced abortions, Pakistan’s persecution of anyone identifying themselves as Christian, the Islamist massacre of Christians in Sudan, the mayhem in Syria and, instead, has singled out the one moderately tolerant democracy in a sea of disintegrating, tyrannical banana republics run by demented Arab goons.
What else could it possibly be other than antiSemitism?
Canada’s largest Protestant church has approved a controversial boycott of products made or linked to Israeli settlements built on occupied Palestinian territory.
The United Church of Canada’s decision is intended to signal to the Israeli government that it considers Israel’s continued occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem illegal, and to contribute to a long-term Middle East peace.
Some also hoped it would send a signal to the Harper government, a staunch ally of Israel that has come out strong against such boycotts in the past while refusing to condemn the settlements.
