World Council of the Clueless

From the Episcopal News Service:

The World Council of Churches (WCC) on February 21 urged its members to consider economic measures to oppose Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory and praised the action of a U.S. denomination that has started a process of selective divestment from companies linked to the occupation.

"Multinational corporations have been involved in the demolition of Palestinian homes," the WCC's main governing body said in a statement adopted during a February 15-22 meeting in Geneva. They "are involved in the construction of settlements and settlement infrastructure on occupied territory, in building a dividing wall which is also largely inside occupied territory, and in other violations of international law."

The World Council of “Churches” has about as much to do with real Christianity as french fries have to do with France. I still can't figure out why no single part of the United States is considered “occupied territory” when we took it by force from those already living here, but the West Bank and Gaza are called “occupied territory” when prior to the middle part of last century the only occupants were Sabra Jews and nomadic Bedouin whose wandering included the current nation of Jordan as well.
