Understanding the Bethlehem Call

In 2009, Palestinian Christian leaders authored the Kairos Palestine document, a blueprint for demonization and delegitimization of Israel.  Kairos places 100% of the blame for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Israel and uses the word “evil” 29 times - more often than it uses the word “peace.”   It calls for boycotts, divestment and sanctions.  Last month, Christian theologians from 15 countries held a conference in Bethlehem where they expanded on Kairos document.  This “Bethlehem Call” vilifies Israel and hurts the prospects of peace. The Israel Action Network had a conference call last week to provide background on these documents as it is increasingly important that the pro-Israel field be familiar with their content.
