NGO Monitor reveals new report by church seeking to actively promote economic attack on Jewish state while downplaying Arab terror.
By Ari Yashar, Arutz Sheva.
A new report by an official committee of the Presbyterian Church (USA) shows how the church is actively promoting the BDS movement seeking to economically cripple Israel, and downplaying Palestinian Arab terrorism at the same time.
The report, “Israel-Palestine: For Human Values in the Absence of a Just Peace,” was released by the church’s Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy (ACSWP) on February 25, and was analyzed by the Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor on Thursday.
“This report, based on selective claims, myths and distortions from anti-peace NGOs promotes boycotts under the guise of religious responsibility,” said Professor Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor.
“For years some factions of the Presbyterian Church have echoed calls by radical anti-peace NGOs promoting discriminatory attacks against Israel, while ignoring murderous Palestinian terror. Last year, these groups convinced the PCUSA to vote to join the BDS attack.”
