" As Jewish voters and supporters of Israel, it is our duty and
responsibility to know who we voting for. In this information age we
cannot allow facts to be buried.
The voters of Indiana's
2nd Congressional district (our neighboring South Bend Region) have a
critical decision as we approach our 2014 election cycle. I know I do
not want a congressional representative who believes culpability for
global terrorism lies on the backs of Israel and the US. Such is the
case as Professor Joe Bock from Notre Dame is challenging the current
Representative Jackie Warlorski. While Rep. Walorski has been among
Israel's finest supporters in Congress, Joe Bock has a history of
supporting pro-Palestinian anti-Israel institutions including Al-Quds
University, Caritas Internationalis, and the UN's Division for
Professor Bock openly exclaims
injustices towards Palestinians without ever acknowledging the
systematic terrorism Palestinians have engaged in. Bock advocates
"Preaching the Word," a Catholic social doctrine that applies biblical
justice to the Palestinians. Bock was assigned Country Representative
for Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Jerusalem-West Bank-Gaza program, and
settled in East Jerusalem for 3 years, ending just before the 2nd
Intifada. Bock's wife Susan Lyke, who is also outspokenly anti-Israel
has written " I learned that Christians shouldn’t sit on the fence when
(Israeli) injustice is at play."
Joe Bock and his wife Susan
Lyke are members and supporters of Friends of Sabeel North America
(FOSNA), a Palestinian Christian organization based in Jerusalem. FOSNA
serves as the “voice for Palestinian Christians” against Israel’s
policies and has been a driving force behind various Boycott, Divestment
and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns against Israel, including those initiated
by mainline Protestant churches in the U.S. They employ a “Palestinian
liberation theology” which is based on the premise that the Bible’s
explicit descriptions of the land of Israel as belonging to the Jewish
people must be repudiated and redefined. Friends of Sabeel’s agenda
calls for the right of return for Palestinian refugees, an end to
American policies that support and give aid to Israel, and active
engagement in the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign.
Friends of Sabeel hosts large conferences on University campuses
(including Notre Dame) featuring strong anti-Israel themes and speakers
who accuse Israel of racism, oppression, and human rights violations.
Their speakers have also depicted Israel as a systematically racist
country comparing Israeli policies to Nazism. They outspokenly purport
that the pro-Israel lobby is excessively powerful and that Israeli
interests control the U.S. government’s foreign policy. Friends of
Sabeel has similarly targeted high schools audiences throughout the U.S.
in recent years. They sponsored an unsuccessful campaign in Minnesota
against Israel Bonds stating it hoped their political efforts would be
“replicated across the country to get state governments to pull their
money out of investing in Israel.”
Palestinian-Christian connection to other Christian groups is highly
toxic, and a United States congressman that shares these views would
have the ability to write and sponsor legislation that is very
detrimental to Israel. How can we let this happen?
even matter who is the "D" and who is the "R"? We can all agree that
support for Israel must remain bipartisan. Although Bock is the "D" and
Walorski is the "R" what matters is whether or not we can count on them
to support, not vilify the only Jewish country.
contrast U.S. Rep. Jackie Warlorski has emerged as one of Israel's
strongest supporters. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee,
she has won bipartisan support for new measures increasing pressures on
Iran. Upon returning from Israel last August Walorski stated “As Israel
continues to experience constant terror threats from surrounding
countries, the United States recognizes its special bond to Israel and
is proud to be a strong ally. As a member of the Armed Services
Committee, I believe it is critical that the United States continues to
focus on Israel’s security, particularly from the growing nuclear threat
in Iran, to help stabilize the region and protect our own national
security interests.” Both parties have identified this seat as a key
battleground in 2014.
With the rise of anti-semitism and
Iran on the verge of nuclear power, we Jews are living in turbulent
times that call for unity and action. How we respond to the detractors
will determine how pro-Israel we are, REALLY.
