“I am very sorry to hear about some religious groups in the United States that support the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories. Such support cannot be justified from a Christian point of view because Christianity is against any sort of occupation and the injustice in it all forms and rationalization. These groups need to re-read their bible, because the bible calls us to stand with the marginalized and the oppressed and not with the oppressors. For those who use the bible to support Israel need to differentiate between God’s promise and Balfour’s promise (Balfour Declaration), because the occupation is the result of a promise given to the Israelis by Lord Balfour and not by God.”
— Archbishop Hanna of the Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem
Technically speaking, Israel belongs to the Church! This is why the Church occupied it as part of her empire. After the collapse of the Byzantine Empire, the Western Church continued to fight for the land. God said that the land belongs to His covenant people, which is the Church. Neo-Judaism is not a part of any covenant with God. In the end, as St Paul says in Romans, God will make a spectacle out of them and they will fall to their knees to the Christ they blaspheme.
