Episcopal Leaders to Honor Anti-Israel Theologian with 'Peace' Award
(AgapePress) - A mainline Protestant renewal group is objecting to a decision by the Episcopal Church USA (ECUSA) to honor a Palestinian Anglican priest who considers the state of Israel to be the source of all problems in the Middle East.

On Saturday (June 17), the Episcopal Peace Fellowship plans to present Naim Ateek with a "Peace and Justice" award at the denomination's General Convention in Columbus, Ohio. Ateek, founder and director of the Jerusalem-based Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center, once likened Israel's treatment of Palestinians to Jesus' crucifixion.

Although Ateek reportedly has since toned down his rhetoric, some Episcopal leaders are critical of his being given the award. One Episcopal priest from New York says giving Ateek the award "strikes me as making a mockery of the process." Another Episcopal official says Ateek's "ultimate goal includes the removal of the ...

(Romans 11:25-28): "For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes."

Ah, have to add one more thing from a letter written to Zola published in his LEVITT LETTER,

http://www.levitt.com/newsletters/2002-08.pdf

Dear Zola: Recently, I tuned into the tail end of a show in which you listed several churches in America that donate money to Palestinian causes. One of the churches listed is the Episcopal (or Anglican) Church. I was not only shocked, but outraged! I immediately terminated my weekly offerings. I will not be part of, nor donate money to any organization that finances the enemies of my Israeli brothers and sisters. BH

Dear BH: A few years ago we detailed resolutions from Episcopal bishops that were totally anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian. We contacted Bishop Stanton of Dallas during that time and received no reply, even when we went through an Episcopal priest, who is a friend of this ministry. The Episcopal church of downtown Jerusalem has a sign out front inviting all to Sunday services (Sunday is a Jewish school and work day in Israel). The sign is in English and Arabic only. The church is located in West Jerusalem in a totally Jewish neighborhood. Thank you for terminating your offerings. Perhaps you could contact Methodists, Presbyterians, Lutherans and the others of your community who give such comfort to the enemies of Gods Chosen People. Zola

There are lots of problems, Walter, the news just didn't cover the Moslems. They have been practicing slavery and killing each other for centuries. Of course Moslems have been killing Christians for centuries also. Want a recent example and 48 years before 1948? The Turks committed genocide (the word was invented for their actions) when they killed two million Christian Armenians.

The importance of Israel? I would suggest you and others read,

Not to worry. The Jews are already taking care of the problem. See the article on the Anglicans changing Scripture to tone down the "anti-Jew" (anything that does not exalt them above all people) rhetoric of the Bible. Come to think about it, how much trouble did the world have with Islam before 1948?

How many of the worlds conflicts today are being waged by Israel? How many by Islam? This man is obviously blind to the bloody border of Islam.

""....once likened Israel's treatment of Palestinians to Jesus' crucifixion.""

This guy obviously knows nothing about Christ Crucified. Which is probably why he joined the Anglicans.

1Cor 1:18 "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God."

Quote;
"Another Episcopal official says Ateek's "ultimate goal includes the removal of the state of Israel, which is not a vision of peace at all but a matter of forcible elimination."

Ah this is the reason for the "peace" award.??

".....spoken very warmly of the tactic of suicide bombing, ..."
