The Scottish Council of Jewish Communities said that, despite recent revisions, the Church of Scotland’s report on Israel remains “unacceptable.”
The Church of Scotland needed to do three things to make its controversial report on Israel acceptable. It wound up failing on all three counts.
The Church of Scotland will reword a controversial report which said “scripture” provides no basis for Jewish claims to Israel, the church said in statement.
The Church of Scotland wilfully mischaracterizes and dismisses Jewish claims to the land of Israel. That’s as insulting and offensive as it is historically inaccurate.
