Thanks to Lindy McDowell for her excellent article on anti-Semitism, Israel and the attack on the synagogue in Belfast (Belfast Telegraph July 23). It will be interesting to see how the churches show their support for these sentiments.
After all the churches are the ones above all who ought to know the importance of Israel in God's view, for example, it is the apple of his eye. Also, the only explicit command as to what to pray for in the Hebrew scriptures (Old Testament) is that we are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
Well done Lindy!
