Canadian Church Defends Decision To Boycott Israeli Products. (Link incl vid)

PRESS TV    Aug.27, 2012

The Canadian media (like the USA, emphasis mine) is replete with pro-Israel pundits most of whom have voiced criticism towards the United Church of Canada in recent days.

The United Church of Canada recently passed motions which encourage church members to promote a boycott of Israeli products produced in illegal settlements.

While the United Church has received staunch criticism from pro-Israel journalists in Canada, it has received praise from anti-racists and Human Rights advocates throughout the country.

The United Church and its supporters have defended the church’s right to boycott illegal settlements, citing international law and the plight of Christian minorities in the war-torn polity.

Analysts say that while the United Church’s decision to stand in solidarity with the oppressed of Palestine might seem radical in the context of Canada, which has a very pro-Israel government and media establishment, to the rest of the world their motions would appear reasonable and judicious.

Analysts say they hope the support for Palestinian self-determination displayed by the United Church will help force Canada to shift tack and take a more balanced position towards the Israel/Palestine conflict.


About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
