Joseph D’Hippolito in the Jerusalem Post explores the inexhautible topic of the moral bankruptcy of the Church of England — in particular regarding the jihad against Israel and the jihad against the rest of the world:
The Church of England’s latest opinion on Middle Eastern affairs ranks among its most bankrupt.
A recent report commissioned by the church’s bishops endorsed apologizing to Muslim leaders for the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq.
That invasion removed a sadistic tyrant who bragged publicly about paying the families of Palestinian suicide bombers – who intimidated his people by tossing them into shredders, allowing his sons to rape their choice of women and gassing entire villages.
