    Religious leaders call on Congress to reevaulate military aid to Israel | JTA - Jewish & Israel News


    (JTA) -- Fifteen leaders of U.S. churches and other faith-based organizations have asked Congress to reevaluate U.S. 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 U.S. Foreign Assistance Act and the U.S. Arms Export Control Act, which would make Israel ineligible for U.S. military aid.

    "As Christian leaders in the United States, it is our moral responsibility to question the continuation of unconditional U.S. financial assistance to the government of Israel. Realizing a just and lasting peace will require this accountability, as continued U.S. 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, UCC churches, and the National Council of Churches, said.

    The Rabbinical Assembly, the international umbrella organization of Conservative rabbits, called for a reevaluation of the interfaith partnerships between the assembly and the denominations represented in the letter.

    You're saying, setting conditions for which someone would receive your support, is nuts?

    I thought Israel gets it's ass kicked in the endgame?
    Then Jesus comes back to save it. So if we delay israle getting it's ass kicked will that not delay Jesus's return?

    I think Christians believe Israel will be helped by God or something...and Damascus will be nuked, also other things in their prophecies. I can't say I am not a Christian but I do think they believe he will convert jews to Christianity and other people of different faiths. They are all similar in that way. Judaism has something like that. So does Islam, they are all similar but in Islam, Israel will get its ass kicked but also everybody else in the World. In Islam it's gonna be very bad days....for all. And Gog and Magog..etc. ...Muslims believe Jesus will return and guide people into a mountain to hide them from Gog and Magog..and he'll live 40 years after and be married..:cool:...long stuff
