SUBJ: Protest Episcopal Church Support of Terrorism

ACTION

Come and join a demonstration on Wednesday at 6:00 pm at Christ Church to protest the church's support of terrorism.

Christ Church is located on the Cambridge Common at Zero Garden Street, one block from the Harvard Square Red Line stop. Meter parking is available along the Common.

BACKGROUND

The International Solidarity Movement is a Palestinian-led organization that brings international "volunteers" to the territories to support the intifada. Volunteers have been arrested and deported for actions that include attempting to prevent the arrest of known terrorists. ISM leaders have made statements in support of terrorism, suicide bombing, and the destruction of the Jewish State.

The Prime Minister's Office has stated that: "Members of the ISM have been knowingly aiding and abetting terrorists and disrupting the activity of the IDF meant to prevent the murder of Israeli civilians."

See http://jat-action.org/ for documentation on ISM.

There are links on the home page to directions to the church.

You can learn more about the anti-Israel bias of Christ Church at the following page:

http://www.cccambridge.org/MidEstPeace.htm

You will see how concerned they are about the suffering of Palestinians and how totally unconcerned they are with Israeli victims of Palestinian terrorism. From what they say, you would think that the Palestinians have been nothing but a kind, peaceful, loving people, terrorized without any provocation by evil Israeli Jews.
