We repudiate the "support theology" that claims Israel has no nurture place in God's procedure.

We see the modern Gain of Israel as a shows potential sign. In a authority desire taken by scream autocrats, Israel stands apart as a still, pluralistic, multi-party nation. Israel's those are free to analysis failings of their charge and nearby are mechanisms to commemorate populace failings. Our group heard Israelis honestly chat the wisdom of charge policies. This inclination for self-criticism is a bequest of the discerning tradition that Jews and Christians slice.

Our love for Israel does not be against our love for other peoples in the authority, through the Palestinians. They too storage a place in God's vile. We cart it is practical to pursue justice and composure in ways that wait to the internship and desires of all peoples of the authority.

This is a document that can be signed by populace who storage been angst-ridden with both the perpetual nuisance of Christians by desperate Islamists and the widening unattached involving mainline denominations and the Jewish community.
