US church calls to reevaluate
military aid to Israel

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/10/2012 3:11:07 PM

Fifteen leaders of US churches and other faith-based organizations have asked Congress to reevaluate US military aid to Israel. The religious leaders sent a letter to Congress members on Monday, calling for an investigation into possible violations by Israel of the US Foreign Assistance Act and the US Arms Export Control Act, which would make Israel ineligible for US military aid. (Snip) continued US military assistance to Israel -- offered without conditions or accountability -- will only serve to sustain the status quo and Israel’s military occupation of the Palestinian territories," the letter, signed by leaders of the Lutheran, Methodist,

Comments:
It's the National Council of Churches which seems to have been thoroughly infiltrated by leftists who are no closer to God than the typical Marxist. I'd tell all the signatories to this letter to ''go to hell,'' but that hardly seems necessary.

Sounds like the Jeremiah Wright - Louis Farrakhan type of churches to me.

A pox upon all their Houses (of 'worship'?)

Yeah, these are the left-wing churches that embrace communism and terrorism. Ignore.

Not even a bishop can speak for the Methodist church - only the General Conference can do that. I am not surprised by the National Council of Churches' position. In my opinion the have nothing to do with Christian principles.

Shame, shame on these people who do not sign their name.

Perhaps a little refresher course in their own language might be helpful (Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's)

So church guys, you take care of the sinners and let our government take care of military aid to Israel.

I stand with Israel.

It is the leftoids mascarading as honest churchmen who are pushing and spouting this crap. Apparently they missed the dump truck ride to the local dhimmi HQ in Ohio that got the pile of horse manure plopped on its doorstep.

After growing up attending Methodist churches, being married in one, making sure that all four of our children attended Sunday School and church regularly and generously supporting them with my dollars, I now consider myself to be a former Methodist. Because of the UMC ongoing campaign against Israel and por Palestinian stance, I have given up on them.
And the Prtestant churchs wonder why support is falling?

Historically, or biblically, if you will, people or nations that have gone against Israel, have not fared well.

The drop in support in these progressive denominations is offset by an increase in Christians who call themselves "non-denominational." The exodus began when the denominations started to substitute progressive politics for the Gospel. It is a response of faithful Christians to the Lord's call: "Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues." REV 18:4.

Last night I was searching for a local Lutheran church & went to the ECRA website... where I read about this action.

Now I am searching for another denomination.

#12 – The passage from Revelation 18:4 means that the “church” is commanded to leave the ungodly and does not mandate leaving mainstream, traditional denominations. If a denomination no longer adheres to the teachings of the Bible and credal documents, believers are “commanded” to leave the “ungodly.”

#13 – The liberal Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) does NOT represent all Lutherans and by its actions is besmirching all other Lutherans. The ELCA is the only Lutheran synod with membership in the National Council of Churches USA.

The newly formed North American Lutheran Church (NALC) in August 2010 came about due to the breaking away of ELCA members who could no longer condone the actions of the ELCA. The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) and the Lutheran Church Wisconsin Synod (WELS) are conservative and adhere to the teachings of the Bible and Lutheran Confessions.

#12 – Clarification of #15 – “… believers are ‘commanded’ to leave the ‘ungodly.’ If one mainstream, traditional denomination becomes ‘ungodly,’ there are other mainstream, traditional denominations that remain ‘godly.’ Nondenominational is not the be-all, end-all.

The Israeis would have been driven into the sea or annihilated, every man, woman and child, in 1973 if President Richard Nixon had not rushed them massive miltary aid in a short period of time.

Anyone who would deny them this military aid does not deserve to live.

Warren Defeats Scott Brown

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN Reports Romney Internal
Polling Shows Obama Leading In Ohio

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

   

 



 
Obama adviser: 'They'll be counting

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
