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

Any hope that the ongoing campaign to isolate Jews from mainstream society in the United States was going to slow down as a result of campus shutdowns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic was shattered in Boston on the first day of July.

That’s when approximately 300 radical leftists paraded through the cradle of liberty and shouted ugly epithets at the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), two progressive organizations which in a reasonable world would be regarded as allies by every decent liberal in the metro-Boston area. Outside the offices of the ADL, a protest leader yelled, “F*** the ADL!” to great acclaim.

The pretext for the rally was the prospect of Israel affirming sovereignty over parts of the West Bank, but it was patently evident that rally organizers were trying to transform anger over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25 into hostility towards Israel and mainstream Jewish organizations in the United States.

Jews and the institutions they support are becoming the receptacle of choice for the anxiety and rage that dominate public discourse in the United States today.

This phenomenon of scapegoating manifested on the streets of Boston during a “Day of Rage” protest on July 1, 2020. The protest, organized by a group that calls itself “BDS Boston,” was ostensibly held to protest the prospect of Israel affirming sovereignty over parts of the West Bank.

Since 2012, Lutheran Pastor and professor of theology Rev. Dr. Munther Isaac has been one of the chief organizers of Christ at the Checkpoint (CATC) conferences that typically take place every even-numbered year in the West Bank. These so-called “peacemaking” conferences, which are sponsored by Bethlehem Bible College (BethBC), present Western Evangelicals with a one-sided view of conflict in the Holy Land. In the story told by CATC organizers and speakers, American Evangelicals need to dial back their support for Israel because of the way it mistreats the Palestinians in Israel and in areas under the control of Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA).

 

At CATC conferences, the PA’s refusal to negotiate in good faith with Israel is not acknowledged. Palestinian Authority incitement is ignored, as is its corruption, praise for terrorism, and pay-to-slay program. Sometimes speakers will condemn Hamas and Islamic extremism in general, but criticism of the PA is off-limits, with good reason. It’s simply too risky for Palestinian Christians associated with BethBC and CATC to condemn the PA leaders who attend the conference. (They sit up front, to the left, just a few feet from the choir.)

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.
