WHTT and Two Jewish Activist Groups Challenge Christian Zionist Event at SF Synagogue

Two groups of Jewish activists from Jewish Voice for Peace and IfNotNow, in addition to members of We Hold These Truths, challenged the program, ““Christian Zionists-Why Evangelicals Support Israel,” presented by David Brog, and sponsored by the Israel Action Committee, at the Congregation Emanu-El synagogue in San Francisco. David Brog has been associated with Christians United For Israel, whose founde John Hagee has publicly prayed for war against Iraq and called for pre-emptive strikes on Iran. We Hold These Truths has been challenging Christian Zionism’s war willing attitude that contradicts the teachings of Jesus for over 15 years. (See: Christian Zionism: The Tragedy & The Turning, Part I)

Jim Haber, a member of Jewish Voice for Peace joined with Patty Ford of We Hold These Truths.

Craig Hanson (l.), WHTT‘s CA Outreach Director, organized the vigil at Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco.

In this podcast, Chuck Carlson interviews vigil leader, Craig Hanson and members of WHTT about the importance of this milestone vigil.

CA: “Opposing CUFI Isn’t extreme, it’s part of envisoning a future future,” J.-The Jewish News of N. CA: “Christian Zionist group has ‘noble’ motives, leader tells S.F. crowd.”]

IfNotNow members oppose the Israeli Occupation of Palestine and are against Christian Zionism.

Rev. John Anderson of St. John’s Presbyterian Church spoke at the IfNotKnow protest at Congregation Emanu-El that was held separately from the We Hold These Truths vigil.
