In a commentary published today in the National Post, former United Church Moderator David Giuliano responds to some of the criticism and misunderstanding that have arisen since the release earlier this month of the Report of the Working Group on Israel/Palestine Policy.
The Israel/Palestine report will be considered by the denomination’s 41st General Council, which meets in Ottawa, August 11–18, 2012. Until that time the working group’s report is not policy of the church, and its proposals are solely recommendations.
The full report and a Question and Answer document is posted on the United Church’s GC41 website.
Also available online are YouTube video clips of the Working Group talking about their report.
For more information you can refer to two news releases that were issued on Tuesday, May 1, 2012: Report Calls for Dignity for All in Israel/Palestine and United Church Releases Report on Israel/Palestine.
