IPMN asks for your support for 15 Christian Leaders
Fifteen church leaders have sent a letter urging Congress to ensure that U.S. military aid to Israel is in compliance with U.S. policies. They are being attacked by some Jewish organizations for daring to ask that Israel not be singled out, but rather be treated like any other nation. All other U.S. aid to all other nations is contingent upon compliance to U.S. laws and policies.
The signatories to the letter are:
Rev. Gradye Parsons, Presbyterian Church (USA)
Bishop Mark S. Hanson, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Bishop Rosemarie Wenner, The United Methodist Church
Peg Birk, National Council of Churches USA
Shan Cretin, American Friends Service Committee
J Ron Byler, Mennonite Central Committee U.S.
Alexander Patico, Orthodox Peace Fellowship
Diane Randall, Friends Committee on National Legislation
Dr. A. Roy Medley, American Baptist Churches, U.S.A.
Rev. Geoffrey A. Black, United Church of Christ
Rev. Dr. Sharon E. Watkins, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
Rev. Julia Brown Karimu, Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)
Rev. Dr. James A. Moos, United Church of Christ
Kathy McKneely, Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns
Eli S. McCarthy, PhD, Conference of Major Superiors of Men
