Breaking Israel News: “Trump drew the ire of the Jewish community by comparing white supremacist groups to Jewish organizations.
Trump made the remark in the context of the ongoing controversy surrounding whether or not the business magnate chooses to disavow endorsements from white supremacist leaders, such as the recent endorsement of Trump by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.
“I don’t like to disavow groups if I don’t know who they are. I mean, you could have the Federation of Jewish Philanthropies in ‘groups,’” Trump said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program.”
Opinion: Mr. Trump’s recent comments that he would not interfere in the Israeli/Palestinian turmoil has bothered me for the past few days. Recalling an old expression that a person is either part of the problem or part of the solution, I decided to find out to which Presbyterian Church the Donald belongs.
I learned that Trump is not an active church-goer, but has claimed to be affiliated with Queens Presbytery (PCUSA) of New York City. Last December, one of the member churches, Rutgers Presbyterian Church in New York City, whose elders are less than amused with several positions that the Donald has taken, voted unanimously to consider ex-communication from the congregation.
While the church is upset regarding Donald’s position on sending the Syrian migrants home, it has made no mention of Mr. Trump’s questionable position on Israel.
Since PCUSA is an outspoken supporter of the Palestinian cause, I decided to post the last five headlines on Presbyterian USA from our archives:
- Presbyterian USA Church Uses Islamists for Interfaith Study (Apr, 15, 2013)
- Former KKK and Iran minister praise Presbyterian USA (Feb 15, 2014)
- Presbyterian USA Terror Ties (Dec 10, 2014)
- US Presbyterians Praise Gay Marriage (Mar 18, 2015)
- Presbyterians Against Israeli Occupation (Jun 26, 2014)
PCUSA is a Replacement Theology church meaning that God is finished with the Jew and the church now has all the promises of the Abrahamic Covenant.
Like I said, you are either part of the problem ….
