CMEP: Hamas Rocket Fire a “Kind of Political Speech�

Churches for Middle East Peace, an umbrella “peace� organization supported by approximately two dozen Christian churches and para-church organizations in the U.S., sure has a funny way of looking at things.

In a bulletin recently sent out by the organization, the organization gives a run down to the current conflict between Israel and Hamas.

The bulletin, which was titled “Gaza Conflict Escalates� includes the following passage:

CMEP Hamas rocket fire Political Speech.jpg

Do you get that? Rocket fire into Israel is a kind of political speech, not an act of war. Sending millions of people into bomb shelters is not a war crime.

Nooo! It’s political speech! A cry for help! An attention getting gambit!

An expression of deep human need for affirmation on the part of those poor childlike waifs from Hamas who want to differentiate themselves from the Palestinian Authority headquartered in Ramallah!

Somebody get Erick Erickson on the line! The Hamas isn’t at war with Israel! Noooo! It’s in a sibling rivalry with the more respectable folks in control of the West Bank!

CMEP wants us to believe that this isn’t a war between Hamas and Israel. Perish the thought! This is part of an intra-Palestinian rivalry. This is how Palestinians talk to each other, CMEP is telling us, by menacing, and in some instances, killing Jews!

Hamas doesn’t need to be confronted in battle! Nooo! It needs a skilled therapist to help its leaders figure out how to communicate with the folks in Ramallah!

Here at Snapshots, we used to think that things would improve at CMEP with the departure of Corrinne Whitlach as the organization’s Executive Director.

Warren Clark seemed much more reasonable than his predecessor.

Well, these hopes were in vain.

If a Christian peace organization can’t acknowledge that Hamas is a genocidal terrorist organization intent on killing Jews then there’s a problem, a real problem.

I called these people and asked them some questions about the report and they refused to answer my questions saying they were leading, they weren't just simple yes or no. Very obvious this people are morally bankrupt.

Guess the return fire is the Israeli critique of their speech.

So the Israeli critique is "I know you are but what am I?" How childish.
