HOW LOW ANGLICAN HAVE SUNK



Melanie Phillips' analyses the Anglican report on which the decision to divst from uniquely"evil Israel" is based. She includes the following tidbits:

The august report concludes by referring to"the honor of meeting the President of the Palestinian Authority, the late Yasser Arafat, who so warmly welcomed us in what turned out to be one of his last days among us."

It ‘salutes’ the Anglican Bishop of Jerusalem, Riah Abu El-Assal, who is influential throughout the Anglican communion. Among many anti-Jewish statements Bishop Riah has claimed of Palestinian Christians:"We are the true Israel… no-one can deny me the right to inherit the promises, and after all the promises were first given to Abraham and Abraham is never spoken of in the Bible as a Jew…He is the father of the faithful."

Is it possible that envy is the real cause of the Anglican anti-Semitism?
