CAMERA’s Partnership of Christians & Jews is a powerful response to the intensifying effort to delegitimize Israel in Evangelical churches throughout North America and Europe, and to the media's shameful silence about the violent persecution of Christians in the Middle East.

The Partnership helps activists effectively counter anti-Israel campaigns and advocate for suffering Christians by  providing educational resources through speakers, conferences, articles, books, and the expertise of CAMERA’s trained professional staff.

Let us help you:

Combat anti-Zionism in the Church

Tell the truth about Israel

Oppose antisemitism

Advocate for persecuted Christians

Promote the important partnership between Evangelical Christians and Jews

Charles Sennott, executive director of The GroundTruth Project (GTP), a non-profit affiliated with WGBH, the public broadcasting behemoth headquartered in Boston, Mass., has responded to CAMERA research and correspondence highlighting problems with a GTP-produced segment about Christian Zionism.

 

Sennott responded to the critique in a manner similar to previous criticism from CAMERA — emphasizing his status as a busy, award-winning foreign correspondent and evading the issues raised by his critics.

Bonhoeffer was a hero who sacrificed his life in opposition to Nazism, so it’s entirely reasonable that we have dozens of books about the man including Eric Metaxas’s Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and Charles Marsh’s Strange Glory: A Life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

There’s a problem however. In these and other books, various segments of American Christianity, mainline and Evangelical Protestantism especially, are given leave to hold up Bonhoeffer as a candle or a mirror that highlights all the things they admire the best about themselves. In the process they recast his life to serve their own agenda.

Following the death of Moses, the Lord commanded Joshua to get the Israelites ready to cross the Jordan River to possess the land. The boundaries of the land given in Joshua 1:4 make it clear that the land the people were to possess was the same land God promised to Abraham, and his descendants through Isaac and Jacob, in the berit olam, the eternal covenant God made with Abram beginning in Genesis 12.

Writing in the September issue of Mosaic, Gavin D’Costa, a professor of Catholic theology at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom, offers a hopeful view of Catholic-Jewish dialogue.

His thesis is that we are about to witness the emergence of Catholic Zionism, “a stream of thought that has the potential to influence for the good the attitudes toward the State of Israel held by billions of believers around the world.” He bases his optimistic assessment on a number of documents issued by the Catholic church over the past few decades.

Evangelical Christians are the latest focus of an aggressive and deceptive pro-Palestinian/anti-Israel campaign designed to turn traditional supporters of Israel away from that support in favor of the Palestinian cause. This monograph equips Evangelicals with the information necessary to refute the faulty narrative at the heart of this campaign. It also exposes the threat Christian anti-Zionism poses to Evangelical-Jewish relations.

Select chapters from the monograph, The Assault on Evangelical Support for Israel, are available in Spanish.
