Palestinian Christians know how un-Christ-like and hurtful the beliefs of Christian Zionists are. In this podcast we talk about the upcoming Christ At The Checkpoint conference in Bethlehem, Palestine on March 5-9, 2012 and play a recording of Dr. Alex Awad of Bethlehem Bible Collge at the 2010 Christ At The Checkpoint conference, entitled, "Palestinian Christians In The Shadow of Christian Zionists." To view video highlights of the 2010 conference go to: Combating Christian Zionism In Palestine.
We discuss some interesting stories in Israel that are ignored in the U.S. The Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, points out that..."When it comes to shooting a Palestinian, pulling the trigger does not come with a real fear of having to answer to the law." In another story, we learn that some Israelis are concerned about the welfare of Palestinians but Israeli bureaucrats are curtailing a program run by the Perez Center for Peace, a non-profit organization. In another story we talk about Israeli settlers in the West Bank of Palestine that attacked an IDF post.
Anders Breivik killed 74 of his fellow Norwegians who supported the rights of Palestinians. In his 1500 page manifesto, Breivik wrote that he admired such radical anti-islamists as Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer and others who fan hate against Muslims through their writings and seminars. Chuck Carlson asks the question, "Should a class-action suit by the parents of the slain, young people be filled against those persons who inspired Breivik to murder them?"
