Another group votes to cut ties with Israel: Anglicans

I don't really get this vote at all. Besides the normal left wing lunacy that drove groups like the AUT to ban contact with Israeli Universities (a decision that was later reversed) why is the Anglican church getting so directly involved in the Israeli/Arab conflict.

I've never understood the lefts fascination and compassion for people who routinely try to kill innocent men, women and children to prove a point. They somehow defend and support the insurgents in Iraq and the Palestinians in Israel without every looking at the fact that the methods these groups use are designed to target non-combatants (and even children specifically) for death. Yet, if a person who was caught performing these types of acts is put in a place where their A/C is turned on too high you never hear the end of it. It's like trying to deal with a person with a split personality who even when faced with the proof of their condition refuses to accept it. Just look at this quote from the report the Anglicans based their decision on:
"‘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"
I don't know about you but I would not be able to claim meeting Arafat as an honor, as he more than almost anyone else, acted as a roadblock to peace in Israel for decades.

As for the Israeli/Arab conflict itself, just look at any of the television programs being broadcast in the Middle East to see what conditions are like there. Almost every major television network outside of Israel runs, or has run, blatant anti-Jewish programming (documentaries showing how the Jews practice the 'blood libel' and the teaching the 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion' as fact, both of which were based on Nazi propaganda to raise distrust for their Jewish communities) but yet the left sees these groups as the victims, not the Jews. This may also tie in to their apparent lack of condemnation for any brutalities carried out by non-democratic governments. Israel, being the only true democracy in the Middle East, therefore is the only true target of leftist scorn.

They really need to look on a map. Israel is a small strip of land, roughly the size of New Jersey, with a population of about 6.5 million surrounded by predominantly Muslim countries, several of which have it as their foreign policy to destroy Israel. I believe this Protest Warrior sign says it all. You may have to zoom the graphic to truly get the point (Israel is in blue).

Read the rest of Melanie Phillips's diary entry. It's an interesting read to see just how gone the Anglican church has become. When a group of people can be condemned for defending themselves from groups of people whose stated goal is their total destruction as a race, while the attackers themselves are glorified, you know you've lost touch with reality.
