This is a new development in Finland. In 2010, Finn Church Aid director, Antti Pentikäinen smeared pro-Israel Lutherans and their events that took place on church property a few years ago, now his org is commissioning reports, this time by, FinnWatch, on Finnish businesses who have connections with Israeli goods being produced in the settlements within Judea and Samaria. This is politics pure and simple, which is usually an anathema for Finnish church goers and funded on the taxpayers’ dime.
NOTE: Finn Church Aid’s EAPPI program churns out one anti-Israel type after another.
