I will get some heavy flak for this but by taking away the recognition of Israel's fundamental nature as a Jewish state the United Church proposals have lost any measure of legitimacy.
It is one thing to call upon Israel to abandon lands gained in 1967 and to back that up by saying there will be commercial pressure to promote that result. It is something else entirely to say Israel need not be a Jewish state.
That, bluntly, is to say the Jews are specially chosen to be stateless - and that is not anti-Israel, that is anti-Semitic.
Now, seeing as the United Church is rapidly fading away perhaps all this is meaningless but still, there is a tragedy in seeing a former rock of Canadian identity being reduced to a useful idiot of present day fascism.
