“The death of Daniel Wultz is “a gift from Allah, and revenge against American support for Israel,” said Abu Nasser, a leader of the Al Aksa Murderers Brigade, one of the Palestinian groups responsible for the Tel Aviv Passover atrocity.
Abu Nasser: “We wish this young dog will go directly to hell. Wultz was part of the American support machine that helps our enemy. I imagine him as one of these Nazis who live here. There is no difference between him and them.”
Abu Amin, a leader of Islamic Jihad, another terrorist gang that operates under Hama’s umbrella, also rushed to claim responsibility for this outrage, stated: “…that even if you live in America the hand of Allah and the sword of Jihad will reach you, and you and you will find the same end as Wultz.”
Asked if his group will specifically target Americans in Israel, the terrorist leader responded: “Killing Americans and Jews in one operation–it can be just great!”
The Church and Hezbollah
Which leads us to the Presbyterian Church USA, henceforth known as PCUSA.
Two years ago. the PCUSA passed a resolution calling for “phased, selective divestment in multinational corporations operating in Israel.”
Apparently, this was not, I repeat not a resolution called for by the rank and file of the church, but by a number of radical, need I say, hard left, ahem, leaders.
Not content with the classic leftist divestment tactic, elements of PCUSA, from the Chicago Middle East Task Force met with leaders of the terrorist organization Hezbollah in Lebanon. Hezbollah, in case you don’t know, occupies southern Lebanon, has a vast army there, miles of elaborate bunkers, and thousands of rockets trained on every one of Israel’s major cities. Hezbollah is funded by Iran. Hezbollah does not (what a shock) recognize Israel’s existence and is sworn to “the destruction of the Zionist entity.”
Naturally, they are Holocaust deniers. As is the official state sponsored Arab media in every single Arab country.
In 1994 there was a massive blast in the Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. One hundred Jewish citizens, men women and children, were slaughtered, two-hundred and fifty were gravely wounded. This terrorist atrocity was financed by Iranian intelligence and carried out by Hezbollah operatives. The Argentine government recently released details of its investigation into another terror incident: the terror bombing of the Israeli Embassy on March 17, 1992, in which thirty people were killed and more than two-hundred wounded. That bombing was also conducted by Iranian intelligence services, with Hezbollah playing a key role in its execution.
The Iranians are responsible for designing and building the roadside bombs that are killing our soldiers in Iraq right now.
These are the people PCUSA have climbed into bed with. This is the organization PCUSA has aligned itself with: a notorious terrorist gang that kills Jews and Americans.
At a certain point, naive peaceniks cross a line and become terrorist enablers.
The good news is that Kathy Leuckert, deputy executive associate director of the General Assembly Council, and Peter Sulyok, coordinator of the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy, were notified that they were no longer employed by the Presbyterian Church (USA). The bad news is that Leuckert and Sulyok were just two of the staff leaders who were with twenty-two other Presbyterians on a “fact-finding” trip to the Mideast.
Allow me to speculate about the “facts” these distinguished theologians discovered in Lebanon: I think I’m safe in saying that half these “facts” are not true, and the other half are just outright lies.
And I’m being charitable here.
By the way, does anyone else get the funny feeling that people pushing for divestment from Israel believe more in the gospel according to Castro, Mao, Arafat, and Hugo Chavez, than in say, Matthew, Mark Luke, and John?
Just a whacky thought.
I Like Terrorists Better than Jews
During an interview with a Hezbollah-owned television station, Ron Stone, another honorable member of this distinguished delegation said, “As an elder of our church, I’d like to say that, according to my recent experience, relations and conversations with Islamic leaders are a lot easier than dealings and dialogue with Jewish leaders.”
We wish this young dog will go directly to hell.
“Also, we praise your initiative for dialogue and mutual understanding,” Stone added. “We cherish these statements that bring us closer to you. We treasure the precious words of Hezbollah and your expression of goodwill.”
Even if you live in America the hand of Allah and the sword of Jihad will reach you.
And of course, the divestment offensive marches on.
That elements in PCUSA consider Israel the aggressor in this conflict leaves us with only two conclusions about these so-called leaders: They are either the stupidest people on the face of the earth, or they are quite simply Jew haters.
I do not easily use this term, but when a you single out the one democratic state in a sea of vile tyrannies, a state that has sought peace with twenty-two hostile, rejectionist neighbors in every manner shape and form for over fifty years, a state that has granted one million Arabs full citizenship, whereas twenty-two Arab nations are Judenrein, a state that has been under political and military siege from the moment it was born, a state that has tried, repeatedly, and IMHO, traded land for peace–yes when you single out this state and ignore the genocidal pronouncements and somber promises of her enemies, and this state is Jewish, yes, you can no longer hide behind the label of being “merely AntiZionist” you have now crossed into classic Jew hatred.
Officially you are now an Antisemite.
And you know what, it’s time for you to take a trip to visit your beloved comrades in Gaza.
Vacation for Presbyterian Leaders–I’ll Pay!
Vacation for our distinguished PCUSA Antisemites. Definitely fly El-Al. Safest airline in the skies. You won’t have to worry about being hijacked by nasty terrorists.
Oh, gee, what am I saying.?
Wait, I have an idea. You can fly… Air Palestine. They have very interesting flight attendants. There’s absolutely no problem with rowdy passengers, know what I mean? They just kill anyone who annoys them. You’ll love the silence. Lots of time to read your Bible. Whoops. Sorry. No Bibles allowed.
Koran only flights.
I assume that’s okay with you guys, you’re like these multi-cultural Christians right? Even as they’re sawing through a fellow Christian’s neck you’re forgiving the barbarians because, well, you understand their point of view, and anyway, deep down you know it’s the fault of the Jews, right? I mean, just pick up your copy of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.” You don’t have one? Gee willikers. Well, not to worry. It’s the best-selling book, I’m not kidding here, the best-selling book in the Palestinian Territories. Wait, not quite true. I fibbed. The Koran is still the best selling book. After The Koran, The Protocols.
Okay, So, you’ve arrived in the Zionist entity. You scowl at how western it is. You hate the fast food joints. It’s all so corrupt. Everywhere you look you see Zionist soldiers. And they have the chutzpah to check your bags every time you enter a restaurant.
You feel so violated. Jews really are so pushy. What are they looking for anyway?
It just goes to show what lack of trust there is.
No wonder the poor powerless Pa
lestinians self-detonate, what choice do they have?
You receive permission from the border police to cross over into lovely scenic Gaza.
There you’re going to take a meeting with representatives of the democratically elected government, a few Hamas leaders. They will be incredibly gracious. I mean, you have heard all about the fabled Arab hospitality, right?
You cross the border. Your heart swells with joy for you are feeling such solidarity with your oppressed brethren. They are exactly like the early Christians who were thrown to the lions by the Godless Romans. Well, not exactly like the early Christians who were afterall truly nonviolent; here in Gaza everyone is armed to the teeth, including little children who should be in school but are parading around in… what are those thick belts around their waists?
You are horrified by the poverty, the squalor, the overflowing sewers. The Zionist capitalists have stripped these poor people not only of their culture and dignity but of the most basic materials of their every day lives. Your filled with self-righteous fury. More than ever, you are determined to carry through this program of divestment. Armed militias zoom about in Toyotas. Women covered head-to-toe in black chardors scurry about. One woman is almost hit by your Toyota. She can barely see through the mesh of her Cardor head piece. You feel sorry for her, but you resist the urge to criticize for after all, this is an ancient culture and who are you to judge? You have heard of honor killings, but you have been assured by Hezbollah that these are just Zionist libels.
You angrily murmur about what the occupation has done to these noble Arabs.
Oh, wait, the Zionists no longer occupy Gaza.
Well, so what, their “influence lingers, like poison.” You are so glad that have read your Edward Said.
And then, your driver makes a sharp turn. Wait, this doesn’t look right. You ask where you are going. Your “guide” points his Chinese Kalachnikov right between your eyes.
It takes a moment, but it gradually dawns on you that you are being kidnapped.
This is, after all, Gaza, and kidnapping is the growth industry here. In fact it is the only business in Gaza, besides murder, drugs, prostitution, car theft, weapons smuggling, and recruiting children for homicide bombing.
It’s a charming culture.
You are worth about 1 million American dollars. Actually, you are worth a great deal more. The divestment resolution and publicity has signaled that your church has milions upon millions of dollars to spend on you.
Thus, you are in for a long, a very long confinement.
In the end, it will probably be the mean Israelis who will risk their lives to rescue yours. But, true to your iron-clad conscience you will continue to blame the Jews for the whole affair anyway. After all, it’s the Jews who drive the Arabs to such desperate measures.
Final Financial Note
Divest all you want. For every dollar you pull out of a company, I guarantee we will invest two.

Take note: Every civilization that has persecuted its Jews now lies on the ash heap of history. To judge a society and the goodness of its values, just look at how it treats its Jewish citizens.
Europe slaughtered her Jews. It can be said that Europe has traded her Jews, productive, brilliant and loyal citizens, for Muslims who hate their adopted country, reject the native language, her culture and obviously her JudeoChristian religions. The Jews of France were sent to Auschwitz and France got Jihad in return.
America is a great land that has treated its Jewish citizens with love and respect, with a kind of devotion that is unique in world history. In return G-d has blessed America with wealth and power.
G-d’s covenant with the Jewish people is eternal and will never be broken. Those who bless the Jewish people will in turn be blessed. Those who curse and turn against the Jewish people will end as all the great anti-Jewish empires have ended: in pillars of smoke and piles of ash.
I know that we have many friends in the Presbyterian Church. I ask these good people take control of their church. Rid yourselves of these self-appointed leaders, these Antisemites who masquerade as voices of conscience. If this odious divestment measure passes, not only will it be ineffectual, but it will signal a terrible historical moment, for G-d never forgives and never forgets those who try and destroy the Jewish people.
Let us return where we began, with the young and innocent martyr Daniel Wultz. May his memory be a blessing. May his family find comfort among the mourners of Zion.
