The leadership of some mainstream Christian Churches, including the Presbyterian, Methodist and Lutheran Dominations, have sent a letter to the United States Congress asking that aid to Israel be curtailed because of Israel's maltreatment of the Palestinians. Ironically, the groups most endangered in the middle east because of their religion, are the Christians.* Copts are fleeing Egypt for their lives, Christians have fled Iraq for their lives, and the Christian sects in Syria will be endangered when Assad falls. Mainstream Jewish groups are finally beginning to be fed up with their Christian counterparts, no longer trying to explain and justify Israel's preference for survival in a hostile part of the world. Today, 20 rockets were fired from Gaza into Israel. The church leaders should concern themselves with the fate of Christians in the Arab world, on that they remain almost silent.

*Because of Israel, the Jews can defend themselves,and the Christians in Israel.
