Infiltrating the Jewish State under the auspices of the World Council of Churches' EAPPI program, 'Ecumenical Accompaniers' are helping a terrorist movement to demonize Israel.

Last week organizers announced they are going global. What must Christians who stand with Israel know and do to counter "Christ at the Checkpoint" and its declaration of war against them?

Brown asked the Palestinian Christians to follow the example set by the Israelis and hold their leaders accountable. "The least you could do as followers of Jesus," he said, "is stand with me in denouncing your government’s celebration of terrorism." It is an offer that was immediately rejected.

Today Pfeiffer, an evangelical Christian, openly confronts his family's past—and boldly stands with the Jewish state of Israel.

Bible with light shining on it | Photo: public domainChristians need to learn more about Islam—a lot more. The religion has more than 1.6 billion adherents. Some of them—but not all—have engaged in terrible acts of violence against Christians in the Middle East, North Africa and Asia. The main perpetrators in the murder of more than 2 million Christians in the Anatolian Peninsula between 1915 and 1922 were Islamic. Muslim-majority countries have also been significant sources of anti-Jewish invective in the modern world. In fact, leaders of these countries have tried to destroy the Jewish state on a number of occasions since its creation in 1948.

Tires burned by Hamas Gazans on 6 April 2018 | Photo: Twitter @Ostrov_AHas the World Council of Churches (WCC) been penetrated by Hamas or someone working on behalf of the PLO? Or is the organization simply whoring itself out in hopes of getting some sort of special treatment from the Caliph when Europe finally gives up the ghost and officially submits to dhimmitude after years of jihadist massacres and bombings?

Jack Sara President of Bethlehem Bible College in Bethlehem | Photo: Bethbc.eduJack Sara, the president of Bethlehem Bible College and a prominent organizer of the Christ at the Checkpoint Conference, has revealed himself for what he is—a Christian who is committed to sharing the gospel with Jews while at the same time ignoring the actions and rhetoric of his fellow Arabs who seek to murder and oppress them. Sara can’t even bring himself to offer to his fellow Palestinians the ambivalent message of St. Augustine to early Christians about the Jews: “Do Not Slay Them!”

CATC Greengrocers by Dexter Van Zile Munther Isaac with Salam Fayyad PA PM in 2014 at CATC2014 Photo screenshotIn late May, a few hundred Christians from North America and Europe will arrive in Bethlehem, the city of Christ’s birth, to take part in the fifth biennial Christ at the Checkpoint Conference (CATC). The conference is organized by Bethlehem Bible College, a school supported by evangelical Protestants from North America and Europe. In fact, the college is a center for anti-Zionist propaganda. The CATC conferences it organizes are a central plank in its campaign to de-legitimize and demonize the Jewish state—in the names of Jesus and peace.
