CAUGHT WITH ITS PAMPHLETS DOWN

Last week I wrote about the PCUSA's divestment of Motorola, Caterpillar and Hewlitt Packard in a protest against Israel. While some will claim it was merely a statement against Israel's incursions into the occupied territory and their actions viewed as hostile to Palestine, I personally believe the basis of the divestment had a broader base.

This week, my belief was given support when the PCUSA removed the pamphlet "Zionism Unsettled", which has been distributed to all PCUSA churches since January of this year.

The pamphlet is published by an organization called the Israel-Palestine Mission Network. Despite claims that it has nothing to do with the BDS movement (a Palestinian organization), it appears this was not entirely truthful, as the IPMN works very closely with the BDS movement.

The IPMN supports a one nation solution. Israel is not the nation they include in their one nation.

The IPMN is a Presbyterian Mission Network, funded by the Presbyterian church.

Palestine is run by Hamas, a terrorist organization, who has stated:

“This way (in which the dead terrorists acted) sends a message to the Zionists, according to which they have no place in the land of Palestine,” said Al-Khiya, who threatened, “We shall expel you from our land, we will fight on it against you, and we will either kill you or expel you from it after you surrender.”
Al-Khiya praised the “resistance” in Judea and Samaria, calling on Palestinian Authority Arabs in the region to “continue the path of Jihad.”
He stressed that the jihad is the way to achieve victory. The event was attended by top officials in Hamas, including the deputy head of its political bureau and Hamas’s Prime Minister in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh."Israel Nation News

In connecting the dots here, it appears that the PCUSA supports Hamas intention to "continue the path of Jihad," and kill all Zionist Israelis. 

But not "officially," because they pulled the pamphlets. 

After this and divestment, they will need something else to cover their ass-ets.
