[ePalestine] ACTION ITEM: Presbyterian Church under attack for their "Breaking Down The Walls" report

Dear friends,

A few days ago I posted a report issued by the Presbyterian Church USA's Middle East Committee titled, "Breaking Down The Walls" ( As could be expected the Church is now under a vicious attack from the pro-Israel lobby in the US.

I urge you to read the report, if you have not already, and send a letter of support to:

Rev. Dr. Ronald L. Shive, Chair
Committee on Mideast Study
Presbyterian Church USA

Rev. Dr. Gradye Parsons
Stated Clerk of the General Assembly
Presbyterian church USA

Rev. Bruce Reyes-Chow
Moderator, Presbyterian Church USA

Elder Linda B. Valentine
Executive director of the
General Assembly Mission Council of the PC (USA).

Lastly, bring the report to the attention of your local media. For example, by meeting with your newspaper's editorial board, or submitting a Letter to the Editor referencing the report as you comment on their coverage of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict. Make a call to your local talk shows and get a buzz happening around the report. People, especially churchgoers, must be shaken out of their spiritual trance on the Holy Land and act to save it.

Actions, and only actions, lead to progress,
