More Anti-Jewish Bigotry on The Christian Left

Over at RNS, Mark Silk looks at the latest instance of anti-Jewish bigotry found on the Christian Left, this time among the Presbyterians. The money quote:

To be sure, the significance of the Land of Israel in Judaism can be debated. Jewish anti-Zionists were not hard to come by in the first half of the 20th century, and they still exist today on the margins of the Jewish mainstream. But a religious community that insists on the importance of “recognizing the limits of our knowledge and experience” might consider the possibility that the idea of a Jewish state located in a physical place is a revelation that grows out of the knowledge and experience of a different faith tradition.
