Mainline churches silent on massacre of Fogel family

It is now nearly six days since five members of the Fogel family of Itamar were slaughtered by 'Palestinian' terrorists, and the reaction from the five 'mainline churches' that always rush to attack Israel is... silence.
As of this writing (the morning of March 16, 2011), it appears that the five mainline churches that could usually be counted on to condemn Israel have said nothing about the attack. The websites of the Presbyterian Church (USA), the United Church of Christ, the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America, the United Methodist Church and the Episcopal Church have no reference to the attack at all. This morning, plugging “Itamar” into the search engine of the UMC’s website yielded a link to a Jerusalem Post article about how Palestinian officials have attempted to blame foreign workers for the murders, but otherwise, nothing.

And as of this writing, there’s no reference to it on the World Council of Churches website, nor is there any mention of it on the website of the National Council of Churches.

To be sure, all of this could change with a few updates this afternoon, but the fact is, approximately five days out from the attack, nothing.

The one exception is Churches for Middle East Peace. CMEP responded to the attack with a statement, which in addition to condemning the attack itself cited Palestinian Prime Minister Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ belated condemnation of the attack. It also condemned Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for announcing the construction of additional homes in the West Bank. Left unmentioned, however, is the problem of anti-Semitic incitement that has been an ongoing problem in Palestinian society for years.
Maybe they're just waiting for shiva to end.

/Fat chance.

Playing "greater victim" never works and Israel shouldn't
