Suggested change of name for Christian Peacemaker Teams
In their almost 50 years of marriage, they were rarely apart.
But on Tuesday afternoon, as Lubov Razdolskaya's cloth-wrapped body was lowered into an open grave in a Beersheba cemetery, her husband Edward Gedalin fought for his life a short distance away in Soroka Hospital.
Both were victims of Monday's suicide bomb attack in Dimona, in which Lubov was the sole fatality.
It’s sadly predictable. The Christian press is strangely quick to publish anything critical of the Jewish State, and in support of a largely Muslim people which intimidates its Christian minority. It happily amplifies Palestinian propaganda against the anti-terrorist ‘wall’ which has saved so many lives. Yet when a terrorist does break in, murdering a wife and mother, approaching her 50th wedding anniversary, and seriously injuring her husband and many others, they are silent. There is not one word of condemnation for this evil act or of sympathy for its victims. It is not even mentioned.
You will look in vain on the Ekklesia site for any mention of this atrocity – instead they continue to bleat in support of the people who produced these murderers. Israeli and Palestinian groups deplore tightening of Gaza blockade.
Meanwhile, all we have had from Independent Catholic News over the past few days is this exercise in petty spite and hatred by a member of the Christian P*ss Taker Teams. Oh, sorry (adjusts spectacles and looks more closely) it says “Christian Peacemaker Teams.” Who would have thought it?
Will "Christian Peacemakers" behave like Christians (“I was sick and you visited me”) and go to visit Edward Gedalin and other victims in hospital, or offer support and sympathy to the grieving family? If they are not going to behave as Christians ought, then they might as well change their name.
